I know i,m sad but after a bout of nostalgia i have an overwhelming urge to get hold of a pd game i did on the amiga way back at beginning of the 90's. It was a 17 bit PD disk with the number 2355 and the game was quiz challenge. Do you think it would still be possible to get hold of a copy of it?

Direct link to file:

There it is in DMS format though, so you could unpack it somehow

Can WinUAE boot DMS files now, last time I used WinUAE properly was 1998/99, where we would boot a Workbench then use DMS to make discs, then to CrossDos then to the A500 we had at the time, it used to take ages

You last used WinUAE in 1998? LOL! You mean WinUAE 0.8.8.

That was nine years ago! Its changed a helluva LOT since then. Emulation is pretty much perfect now and yes it can boot directly from DMS files.

Its sad but true, as I only used it to make DMS files and then transfer them with CrossDos, later on I went onto TwinExpress. I was more into that other emulator Fellow as it ran better on my Cyrix 686

I have WinUAE again now

I think someone should bang together a guide for graybenham so he can boot the DMS he wants then.

graybenham are you familer with WinUAE?

Geez a blast from my past

Thanks for your help guys. I got it to play and it damned near brought a tear to my eye. 1: cos its a touch of nostalgia and 2: its programmed terribly lol
But hey, it has its charm as my first ever attempt and porttrays beautifully my humble amiga beginnings.
Thanks again

I've tried looking on back2roots for the disk you wanted but I couldn't find it in the pdsoft folder.

Maybe someone else will be able to find it for you.
