After *cough* 'syncing' with AMR we're down to this :
Code:
Amiga Format #101 (all disks)
Amiga Format #102 (1997-09-04)(Future Publishing)(GB)(Disk 1 of 2)[Oct 1997] - 102a
Amiga Format #104 - #106 (all disks)
Amiga Format #107 (Disk 1 of 2) - 107a
Amiga Format #108 - #109 (all disks)
Amiga Format #110 (Disk 1 of 2) - 110a
Amiga Format #111 - #124 (all disks)
Amiga Format #125 (Disk 1 of 2) - 125a
Amiga Format #126 (all disks)
Amiga Format #128 (all disks)
Amiga Format #130 - #134 (all disks)
Amiga Format #136 (all disks)
It looks like more than the last list, but it's actually not that much anymore

Okay, those five DMS files unpack correctly.

I'll check them tomorrow and scour my disks collection for those still missing and image any I find.

Nice
I will ask to move some of the posts to the file server forum, so we can continue the hunt for the missing coverdisks there

Well, this was for the coverdisks, but yeah the CDs are also very welcome of course
I assume the CD and disk version were two different 'packages' of the magazine then? Anyway, would be great if you could upload images of your CDs

Yes you could choose the floppy edition or the CD-ROM edition of the magazine.

Oh damn I just looked at the numbers and thought those are the issues they came with... You're right, we have the full set of CDs already (need a bit of renaming though...).

Never tried any of them... We only have most of them in 'DSQ' (DiskSqueeze) format. If they are usable without or if we can get the codes, we should replace them with ADF versions

No the deal was, they came on floppies which weren't password protected. But they also put the contents on the main magazine CD-ROM in a folder which was password protected so non-subscribers couldn't get to it.

I have found some more of the missing AF disks in my collection.

I'm uploading an archive to the Zone containing the following files:

Amiga Format #085a.adf
Amiga Format #085b.adf
Amiga Format #086b.adf
Amiga Format #087a - Type Smith 2-5.adf
Amiga Format #087b.adf
AF101a.adf
AF101b.adf
AF102a.adf
AF104a.adf
AF104b.adf
AF105a.adf
AF106a.adf
AF117a.adf
AF117b.adf

The first five are from unpacking the DMS images already on the server and mentioned above.

They test okay, but one small point is that the volume name of the AF087b disk is "Copy_of_AF_REALITY_GAMES", so it's not original. However, I have no replacement for it.

The others I obtained by imaging disks I own.

Nice one prowler I'll mark the 087b disk as [modified]. Will upload them in a bit and update the list

Before I start on these AF Subs disks I have just sent a quick PM to ElectroBlaster as I noticed an old thread from way back where he mentions that he has a collection of them in ADF - so I have asked if he still has them... will post back...
