Quarterback

Does anyone know if Quarterback is either backward comatible or how do I find out what version of QB a backup was made with?

I have found a few disks that have been QB Backed up, yet when I try and restore them it doesn't work

I tried restoring with the latest version in Tosec btw.

Look at the bootblock of the disk. It should say which Quarterback version the disk was made with.

I have had a look in the Bootblock, but don't see anything other than QB0x (x being the backup disk number QB01, QB02)

I have attached a pic of the first disk!

Seems like I was wrong, I thought the bootblock had the version of QB it was made with. Sorry

Maybe in track 45?

woops just noticed, you didn't analyze this with a sectoreditor, you should do it with that instead of plonking an ADF in an hex viewer.

for example, I just told you to check track 45. How will you check track45 from there? Well you can, I suppose, if you make the calculation for ho many bytes a track has etc, but this is pure shite

Also, I'm not sure if a pc hexa viewer would output the correct character set.

Same problem here.

Checked track 45 - nothing.
Disk is in the zone, maybe someone can tell me how to unpack this. I haven't been successful so far, for I don't even know the version this disk was packed with. Seems this is mandatory.

Quarterback v5.0 (1992)(New Horizons)[h]

thanks a bunch bip!

After "IRC update" (QB 6.0x instead of 5.0 because of a typo) disk contents showed nicely!
So you guys might need to keep a collection of QB versions to unpack that crap!
