Hi guys,

of course I can help here.
I am a member in a group of some guys at the a1k.org (Germany) which will be inofficially work together with softpres. We all have kryoflux and try to preserve games which are not listed or wanted at softpres.
Because no one at softpres have the time to list and actualise all these games we are make at all at just for our own. And as it is as softpres the IPFs are not public.
If someone has a defektive Original he can get in contact and we can help than.
That means we preserve the games via kryoflux and one of us (aPex) check if the streams will useful. If they are Ok we make inofficials IPFs of that.
But we still use the rules of softpres. That means that a disk must be 100% unmodified to be good for a IPF. So if a disk is dublicated on a Amiga it is not possible to prove if it is a unmodified Original. Unless we find a copy which is a 100% match to the first stream.
So for me "preserve" still means it will be saved as IPF, which will be not possible in the case of Dark Angel. This game was dublicated on a Amiga. But I have the working Originals here (bought at the german "Spielekiste" at the end of the 90s) and because I always have Game copys of all my Originals - I just have working copys , too.
So I think it will be no problem to save them as ADFs here.
Because I am new here, I believe I can not upload in the zone, so I will be give the ADFs to nujack and he will be upload the Game in the zone.
Just as he did it with the rare Space Cab Game.

Cool
If nujack is too busy, let me know (PM). I can give a hand to move file(s) to the zone until you have access yourself

I‘m here and I will support as far as I can. I can‘t believe by myself that the full version was found but it‘s really true.
I have received the ADF-files and played it until Level 3. I‘ll upload it tomorrow.
Here is a short teaser for today:

First, I have to say...
It is great that I can help here, to solve a problem which get around since years, so it seems.

As I said, aPex just check our streams and he can tell whats good and whats wrong.

A few years ago we send a big stock of streams and Ipfs with new games to softpres. But nothing happens so far. None of these Games was newly listed at softpres. I believe we had around 800 Games preserved (most german versions) which are not listed at softpres.

So at the moment we keep our Saves in our group just to help or repair damaged Originals.

If you want to help, just get in contact with aPex. He can decide what will happen...

Full version of "Dark Angel" was uploaded to the zone (3 disks).
I've played until level 3 until I got stuck in the 2nd picture. The first 2 passwords are "Prelude" and "Phobos". Great game that reminds me on Flashback.
Have Fun ...

Digging in the past and finding old stuff is so wonderful. We should make unofficial IPFs for this great game.

@AMIPEGUSER
Thank you!!!!

Hello,

Great ! Like what, there are always good surprises even nowadays.

And Flashback is going to have a real sequel 30 years later.

I already have made a Kryoflux Streams of Dark Angel and it is on the a1k Stream Server.
Apex will handle that.

@ransom1122
I never finished the Game in 25 years and you made a longplay in a few days.
RESPECT!!!
