Phalanx II - The Return - non [b corrupt files] disks...

Heya guys,

I wasn't going to post this but...

...was looking through TOSEC and there are no good disks for this game:

a) Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h Demolition][b corrupt files].adf
b) Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h Demolition][b corrupt files][a hacktro removed].adf
c) Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h PHR-Crew][b corrupt file].adf

From analysing each with "ADF-Workshop":

Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h Demolition][b corrupt files].adf:



Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h PHR-Crew][b corrupt file].adf



Luckily the corrupt files on each disk are different so, have now create a new disk that doesn't have any bad files



...probably the best we'll get without an original / IPF.

File Type: zip Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h PHR-Crew].zip (285.8 KB, 13 views)

This fix cant be correct, files stage3 and stage4 now have same size, files are different named in available disks!

Ok, I get what you're saying...

It could go either way with swapping the "Stage3" and "Stage4" files...

Again, without an original it's impossible to know what order to put them in.

At least now all stage files are not corrupt and different

Also, the "Stage1" files are different sizes between each bad disk

I've looked at both and here's the difference:

1) From "Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h Demolition][b corrupt files].adf":



2) From "Phalanx II - The Return (1987)(Kingsoft)[h PHR-Crew][b corrupt file].adf":



I've used the 1st disk's file as it seems more complete although missing the word "Time" vertically so not perfect

Again guys, this is probably the most accurate disk you will get
