Exclamation M.I.A. game is sold on Ebay... anyone interested?

Good morning my Amiga fellows,

I was browsing through HOL and I found on ebay the following MIA game...
ADI Junior helps with counting (4-5).

Here is the link to the auction.. it's not my auction of course!
I thought that it could be a nice addition to our HOL database!! Maybe someone could buy it from ebay and add it!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADI-Junior...item2a221dc4f3

Good luck and have a nice day!

I think 2 disks may be write enabled so you can buy someone music modules or Deluxe Paint art.

Well, the seller has a good reputation in the ebay community and I thought that it worth a try to take a look... I guess there is always a risk when you buy something from ebay! Right?

But whoever is interested I guess those things should be ruled out by talking to the seller!

MIA in itself simply means that there is no Double-Barrel Screenshot for the game.

This can mean that HOL members/contributors got lazy.
But most of the time, it will mean that there is no dump of the game.

So it is possible that a game has some scanned documents/disk but if no dump has been made, there is no way to play and take screenshots (and therefore no DBS).

I remember the ADi course disks (English/Math/ect..) disks being quite heavely protected. Never got a 100% backup with Cyclone copier(The game knew and hurt you in some way or crashed.)

I cant rememebr if it was those disks or the Generic Boot disk, but you had to play with them write enabled to save scores/stats/unlocks.

This is all asuming the Junior game is the same as the gcse versions I had.
