I will post a list of missing disks later, so hold your horses until then

Btw : MIA list for the 'normal' coverdisks updated in the first post of this thread.

Hey TCD,

The archive I uploaded contained AF102a.adf as well. I inadvertently missed it out of the list I posted, but it is there!

Sorry about that.

No worries and great to have that one off the list
Next time I should check the disks and not the post...

Btw : Anyone ever used 'DiskSqueeze' ? Seems like there are some missing subscriber disks only available in that format...

Yes, I've used it. Where are those images?

I've just made a useful discovery. I've just put my original AF133, AF134 and AF135 CDs in my DVD-RAM drive and, lo and behold, the coverdisk images for those issues are in the Coverdisks folder on those discs in DMS format. I've just unpacked them and I'm uploading them to the Zone.

If anyone has a more complete collection of AF CD-ROMS than I have, or has downloaded them from the EAB server, we may be able to plug some of the remaining gaps from those discs.

I can't say when they started including the coverdisks on the CD-ROM in DMS format, but they weren't included on the AF117 CD for sure.

Great news prowler (both the missing disk images and DiskSqueeze)!
You can find the missing coverdisk images in 'Collection/Coverdisk/Amiga Format/Subscriber Disks/DiskSqueeze'. I only left the ones that are missing in there Will add your new disks and update the MIA list in the first post then

Alright, I've grabbed those DiskSqueeze images. I'll unpack them and try them out tomorrow, and upload them in ADF format if they're okay.

Brilliant work! Now does anyone have the original disks that they can scan to fill the gaps in AMR?

Okay...
That would mean we have the full set of AF subscriber disks on the file server... *sniff* give me a moment...
No really, would be great if we could complete that one as well Then we would have both the full CD and the full subscriber set

AF088a & AF088b
AF089a & AF089b

I'll see if I have any of the others in my physical disks collection.
Pitty I just seen this today. I've uploaded from AF50 to AF89b to the fileserver almost two years ago.

But as usual nice job prowler!

Hi guys. Just read the pm sent earlier. I defo adf'd those disks and I think they were also scanned aswell as they were in perfect condition. I cant remember exactly where I got them from but the seller had really looked after his/her stuff and I seem to remember them bundled with a wizard devolpments installation kit that had 10 or more disks.

This was done along time ago if I remember, will have to find them tho. Still have a catweasal mk4 so if anyone needed me to redo stuff to fill in corrupted bits I could do that

Hi ElectroBlaster,

I think it's your collection that is hosted on AMR If prowler manages to get the last disks 'ready', then we would only need something, if a disk is corrupted (for the subscriber disks that is).

No idea about the scans unfortunately. I'll ask someone from the AMR team if he knows anything about them

Those subscriber disks are best replaced with adf versions.

I don't remember ever looking at them than packing them to dsq. Unknown about subscriber code never looked or did i, got them all from a boot sale.

There are some dsq Amiga User International floppy disks on the server. Good to see they are been replaced by the adf versions
