Fabie's rare games

because the most of stuff I have is in dms format....the cds I have where done in 1995-1997 by some crackers and the name of the files have 8 characters max...so it is difficult to understand what game is it according to the name of the file .. most of the files do not contain file_id.diz

please add in the root directory of EAB file server a directory named "games lost" or "games lost not in tosec"
you can promote that dir in a thread where ppl can upload lost games....and someone must control it if the game uploaded is in tosec or not....in the case that a game uploaded there exists in tosec....the file must be deleted from that dir

How should one know which releases aren't in TOSEC? If someone could post a (partial) missing list for TOSEC, that would be mai (but it's rather pointless). Commercial games that are really needed are on this list : http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_nb_dbs=no

So you don't have the CDs? Why don't you just upload the files you think that are rare to the file server? Batch converting DMS to ADF and checking them with ClrMamePro. Here's at least the ClrMamePro bit : http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=42963

Could you upload those two CD images to the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) ?

I can't do that ...sorry...my cds were attacked by some kind of rare fungus and some files are unreadable...and the others cds which I said I have are totally unreadable
so if I try to make a cd image...the cd image program will start to retry and retry to try to read some files....
btw,

this questions is for all...
are interested in games or in apps?
because I can make a compilation and upload the files which are readable

tips for dumping

what kind of drive are you using, the slower the better. if possible a cdrw drive a quality. asus, plextor, sony. than use cdrwin to dump.
clean the cd's with alcohol and wrub them with a soft cloth.
if this doesn't work throw them away.

Both. Can you try to save as much as you can from Games and Apps?

Many Thanks
