Which game does this disc belong to?

This disc was in a pile that I got as part of a Job lot.

I havent got a clue what it is from....
It doesnt boot, Wb lists it as Disk2.

It looks like some sort of copy-protection thing. How many games had the copy protection on a disk label? I think a footy manager game did, but there can't be too many others.

At first I thought it looked like the symbols from the game Plotting. But that's a one disk game with no protection. Hmm..... can't wait to find out which game this is from!

Damn, I should know what that disc is since I have held it (rather, a disk like that) in my hands many times. But I've completely forgotten what it was.

Curious as hell, I am.

If you could ADF it for us I'm sure someone (Andreas? Bippym? Me? ) would like to take a look at it

Let's hope you get a match. As long as the crackers for the TOSEC version didn't screw the game files too much

It's NOT SWOS disk 2.. well not a standard disk 2 anyway (go check a disk 2!!)

edit: I have checked ALL SWOS and Sensible Soccer disks and most of the files on this disk do NOT exist!

It is NOT SWOS and if it is it must be an ultra rare version that doesn't follow the ame disk layout etc..
