@mai - Yes values are disk positions in decimal, but I still don't understand. Can you explain a bit more about this bad bytes, where they located or so. Thank you.

See picture in post #5 of this thread!
The bad bytes are in rootblock of the disk.
I am not at home right now, so cant tell you exact disk position.
Compare available Atlantyda disks by using a hex editor!
The difference in rootblock are some of the bad bytes - result of doscopy on NDOS disk!
$6E014 if i remember correctly.

...see also this post for detailed information:
http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=584

the question still remains, is it worth for more investigations!?
There is still no longplay available to see if this corrupt bytes have any visible influence.
I think this corrupt data has no serious damage in this case.

@Asman
now i am confused,
this uploaded file "06-gameData"
comes not from uploaded "Atlantyda.adf" crc32=3470E515

ok, i see its from WHDLoad image.

btw: just a proof:
extract "06-gameData" from each known Atlantyda disk and the file has always different crc32!!

...and see what happens if you use Workbench Diskcopy command, the destination disk has different crc32. because diskcopy writes data to rootblock(checksum), this is just fine for pure DOS disks but for NDOS disks its sometimes fatal, especially if packed data are affected.
This is not the first time that a publisher mastered a disk with such an issue:
Lollypop from Rainbow Arts, SPS release Lollypop (1995)(Rainbow Arts)[2864], they later published version without this issue.

I'm here

Good to know the game can be played to the end - Will do a longplay soon. Will also try Lazarus, which seems to be another good Polish platform game.

why are polish games only available in polish language?
that's a big downside which locks out non polish users.
english is world language which everyone understands.

I think Lazarus is much better. No pits without exit, no "dancing" floor.

This has a completely different CRC32 to the other 4 posted here.

This "new" disk has CRC32 = 0B260F27

...unfortunately it still has the same bad stuff as detailed here:
