I'll upload my 2 PAL dumps of Garrison to the Zone later today. The protection tracks are the only issue. The bit length is different for each of the versions I have. I'm hoping I get time this week to rework the protection decoder.

It should be Rainbow Arts format type 3.....

the 3 formats used on disk 2 :

format GO! track 00.0
1 sector/sync 4489

Rainbow arts format type 3
1 sector/sync 4489

Format Rainbow Arts 4489 Track 01.1 (protection track)
1 sector/sync 4489/256 extra syncwords 44895555

Format Rainbow Arts 4489 Track 01.1 (protection track)
1 sector/sync 4489/256 extra syncwords 44895555

What I am seeing for track formats is the following for disk 2 on 4 versions of Garrison and 2 version of Garrison 2


0.0 amigados
0.1 garrison_dir - sync of 4489 file location table $f0 in length
1.0 garrison_empty - sync of 4489 and then filled with $55 (length varies)
1.1 garrison_protection - sync of 4489 and then

4489 54AA 54AA 54AA 54AA 4489 5555 4489
5555 4489 5555 4489 5555 4489 5555 4489

track bit length for 6 different copies is different

2.0- 79.1 garrison_data - I assume what you mention as "Rainbow arts format type 3"


I have been able to create working IPFs for all 4 copies of Garrison and the 2 of Garrison II with the latest updates to the decoder. Will be releasing the update soon.

Abaddon has now supported:

Chambers Of Shaolin
The Seven Gates Of Jambala
WARP

As a result of using the ibm_mfm_dd_unknown_length parameter it also supports the longtrack protection on Ninja Remix
