I have some coverdisks that I was about to give away. I have created ADFs where possible using disk2fdi v0.9. I don't have any Amiga hardware. Is there anyone in the USA that could image the disks for CodeTapper? The ones I have are:

AMIGA ACTION
apr 1996 (disks 1, 2, 3), may 1996 (disks 1, 2, 3)

CU AMIGA
86, 87

AMIGA FORMAT
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 18, 21, 58a, 58b, 58c

AMIGA COMPUTING
sep 1989, aug 1989, oct 1989, jan 1990, may 1990, sep 1990, oct 1991 (41), nov 1991 (42)
+ cando + fighting warriors (unknown issues)

AMIGA SHOPPER
may 1993 (25), oct 1995 (54 - disks 1, 2)

YOUR AMIGA
pd collection 1, xenomorph


I also have the game Eye, by Endurance Games, which does not seem to have a CAPS release yet. Ideally, I'd like to send that with coverdisks for imaging. I can throw in these other originals (all for free) to anyone with a good reputation for imaging:

GAMES

Eye - Endurance Games
Logical - Rainbox Arts
Midwinter
Plotting - Ocean
Projectyle - Electronic Arts
Puzznic - Ocean
Spy vs Spy: Arctic Antics - Wicked Software

DEVELOPMENT

Amiga Macro Assember v1.1
AssemPro Amiga - Abacus Software
Devpac 3 (disks 1, 2, 3, 4) - Hisoft
SAS C 5 (disks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
WShell 2.0 - Wishful Thinking Development

OTHER

Amiga (Workbench 1.3 UK, Extras 1.3, The Very First)
Making Music on the Amiga - Abacus
MusicLab - IFS - Version 1.0 - Digital Expressions Research

Well if you're giving them away, I can dump them (and pay for shipping for that matter to EU).

I just finished my Amiga Format disks.

Hi tomse,

Sure, thanks. Which disks are you interested in? Shipping costs might make the answer something different from "all". :-)

I also have PD disks (fred fish amongst others) that are in good condition, should anyone be running short of disks. Shipping those to EU seems overkill though.

Well the goal is to get them dumped and delivered to CodeTapper and SPS,
so if none who can dump them are in or close to the US, I'll take them all.

I see you have quite a few of the missings of Amiga Format (I didn't check the others)

Fred Fish I'll pass on though :-)


can you pm me the details for shipping/paypal please?

I've started uploading my floppies. At the moment I'm doing CU Amiga disks in random order. Images are available over here. I noticed one or two disks that had suspicious looking flux information, so they may have been inadvertently formatted or faulty to begin with... I'm uploading them all nevertheless.

I'm also scanning all the labels in high resolution.

Okay, I've done all the Amiga Format floppies I could find, this covers most between 49-97. Some were bad and some seem to be missing, but perhaps they'll still turn up. I'll also image the subscriber superdisks and upload those.

I still have one more box of CU Amiga floppies to go but I have to find it first

You wouldn't happen to have The One #28 1991 (Rick Dangerous II complete new level (Amiga) & Midwinter II interactive preview (Atari ST)) ?

I made an extended adf way back before I got my KryoFlux, so for preservation it's useless and I don't know if the Midwinter II demo works on an ST (doubt it).
Unfortunately I don't have this disk anymore as I returned it to the owner.

@Codetapper

My uploads include some of those AF floppies marked as bad - have you checked if they are usable?

Still searching for more CU Amiga floppies, have no idea where one box of floppies has gone...

I'm going through them in sequence, I still have lots of Nobby's to process, but I update the list as I go. His are preferable for me as I have a cap and 16 Mb downloads for a single file is a lot slower. I will do them eventually though!

I've updated the list again, the AP17 disk is now showing as OK!

Now a request, does anybody have the disk from The One for 16-bit Games 18 (Mar 1990) containing a dual format Amiga/ST disk of Pipemania (and possibly Gazza's Super Soccer too)? If so, can you please contact me and/or upload it!

The SPS tools report if the track is bad, from memory they come up with things like 97% AmigaDOS meaning some bits were not read correctly so they fail to decode correctly. A redump might possibly help. When the disks are normal AmigaDOS format, I try and copy all the files off them to check they have no errors at that level aswell. I'll continue to process your Amiga Action disks for the next little while.
