Missing bootblock is the least problem, disk has quite a few corrupted sectors. I fixed some of them and installed a bootblock, game loads and I can see a few scenes and then it crashes. Too tired to have a deeper look now.

This is as far as I've got with disk 1. There is sound at the start, is that the track you're after? As Stingray has already said, there are a few bad sectors (6 I think) that stop this game loading further than the game show start to earn money for a new car.

It's a real shame that the disk is damaged. You should consider sending it to prowler if he is willing to tackle it.

Are there really only 2 copies left of this game?

This week I will do some scans for HOL, let me know if I can do more saving this game.

Great, thanks a lot for your efforts! It'd be great if you could scan the manual as well... are there any credits in the manual? i.e. programmer, graphics artist?

OMG, the graphics look like they were done on a C64 and converted over to the Amiga. Still it would be nice to preserve this game in its full glory

The C64 graphics are way worse than the Amiga's.

He must've felt the heat after reading that someone else has got the game and it's dumping it

No, it's freezing after the first scenes (after switching disks). Someone to the rescue?

Can anybody forward it to the HOL team? Found no email for such a feedback.

HD-install can and should be changed from "unknown" to "no" since the game uses hardcoded "df0:" file names.
