Strange Psygnosis demo

Hi,

One of my disks was a strange Psygnosis demo, slideshow.

It was DOS so I've uploaded it

Psygnosis Slideshow

If anyone remembers it, let me know.

i've got a psygnosis demo too. I think it was from a PD library but I'll have to dig it out.

Screen Rollers (19xx)(Psygnosis - Psyclapse - SRS).adf

That is the filename I have given it.. I reckon SRS is the PD library (well at a guess!)

I contributed a lot of other Psygnosis demo's to the SPS and Psygore made WHDload installers for them.

Shadow of the Beast / Blood Money Demo
Shadow of the Beast 2 Demo
Ork Demo
Awesome Demo

I also had Shadow of the Beast 3 demo but SPS wouldnt take it because the disk had been modified.

I got most of them from the Psygnosis Stand at the 1992/3 World of Amiga Show in London. I also bought the CD's from Bjorn Lynne "Hobbits and Spaceships" and Allister Brimble "Sounds Digital"

I used to have the Lemmings demo (which apparently has levels completely unique to the demo). Unfortunately the disk was copied over I gather SPS are still after an image of it.

If you could make an image of this disk (wwarp beast3demo.wwp C 0-161 nostd rc 50) to create an hd install, it would be nice.

I've got the Lemmings and Beast III ones, along with a bunch of others. Still sitting here waiting to be SPS'd.

I've uploaded my copy of the Psygnosis demo to the Zone. It is different to the one linked to by Alexh above.

Also, I've actually discovered a MicroProse promotional disk - put out by MicroProse to show off their games in 1991/92. Has proper label too. Features slideshows showing some of their games. I've uploaded this too.

Ok - I downloaded Alexh's and the demo content seemed to be different (unless they randomise it or something)

I am sure that I had another one also, but I couldnt find it.

I've looked at the one Galaxy sent and it IS the same content... but it appears it was tweaked by some 3rd party PD company in australia.

I DO have another Psygnosis demo disk somewhere which is all HAM scans of lots of original artwork by Roger Dean that made it onto the covers of Psygnosis / Psyclapse games.

alexh's pd.zip seems like rev 1 and Galaxy's psygnosis.adz is rev 2. The music modules are name mod.int1 and mod.int2 respectively. Maybe someone didn't relabel the disk number?

Is there anywhere the images of the demos can be downloaded? I assume they are classed as public domain.
