I've uploaded all except for Conan The Conqueror - it sounds like a PD game.

But:

- F-15 Strike Eagle 2 is a one disked version. I can upload an original two disk version if you would like, but it may need input from the manual.

- The two Dizzy games are from the Dizzy's Excellent Adventures compilation. I don't think that they were released individually.

Thumbs up Thanks Cody

Woooaaah. I just visited The Zone and there they are. Well most of them. Thanks Cody. Is the F15 1 disk version your own special cracked version? Is there any difference between this and the 2 disk version? Does it emulate in WinUAE yet? I know Prince of the Yolkfolk was a seperate release and I expect Spellbound Dizzy also was. Thanks for posting Dizzy's Excellent Adventures but I already had that. It's the standalone versions I'm after. Thanks anyway. They must be quite rare I think.

Oh and Conan the Conqueror wasn't a PD game it looked like Darkmere and had good graphics. I've got a preview of it in Amiga Format (May 1995 edition). I don't think it was ever released though. Shame cos it looked quite good. Thanks again Cody.

I don't think there is a big difference between the one disked and original two disk version of F-15 Strike Eagle 2, but you never know!

As for Conan, I'm pretty sure it wasn't released.

I believe you are thinking of "Conan the Cimmerian" from Virgin. I'll up it when I get home. And I think I have the standalone versions of those Dizzy games, plus a cracked version of the 2-disk version of F-15 Strike Eagle 2, as well. I'll send up a care package when I get home tonight.

Hooooo

Well it looks pretty similar. I'll have to look at the magazine screenshots again. Does anyone know what year this game is and whether or not it is AGA.

Well, as far as I know the game was released in 1991 and it's not an AGA game.

I attach a screenshot to help you a bit!

Floppy disk Thanks

One more request.
Disk 5 of Monkey Island II - LeChuck's Revenge

It's missing from PE2000 for some reason unknown to me.

I've uploaded a disk 5 of Monkey island 2. The reason I say a disk 5 is because I remember getting the files from PE2000 and having the same problem. I don't quite remember how I got it, I think it was here though.

Thanks Drake. You didn't get the German version of disk 5 did you? That's on PE2000 but the English disk 5 isn't. Bizarre. I think I remember someone uploading it to the ADF Zone a few months ago so you probably got it from here.

I was thinking about Conan the Cimmerian as well.. how funny, I saw an ad for it yesterday and I was wondering if teh game got released for the Amiga or if it got canned (the ad said "coming soon Amiga Atari ST blah blah").

It was advertised along with Vengeance of Excalibur.

Did anyone else have trouble with the adz files that Cody posted? I use EasyZip because it handles zip, lha, tar, gz/tgz, cab and bh files. It usually de-archives adz's (renamed) with no problems, but none of those would extract. So I tried running them in WinUAE as adz files and GZIP.EXE created four copies of the GZ in the Windows/Temp dir, but only booted up to the Workbench hand.

I considered that. Which is why I asked if anyone else had problems. Nothing else I downloaded during that session was bad, only the adz files. And I have downloaded lots of adz files before with no issues, so the browser is not padding any extra bits into the file(s).

I picked a random file (Darkside.adz) and it worked fine for me (in Powerarchiver). I didn't actually test the ADF through an emulator. Powerarchiver said it was fine though
