Hey,

I always thought, that Headcoach and Headcoach Pro Football Sim was the same game in different Version but I see there different.
BUT... I have a second Version from Headcoach V3 with a different Handbook from The Midnight Oil not from Coda Software.
The Programm seems the same. Midnight Oil was it Australian Publisher???

Question:
There are three Versions of Rockford in HOL.
One is the Flatpack from Arcadia without Diskscan
The Other is the Boxed Version from Melbourne House with Diskscan.
What is the coin up Version there is a Diskscan.
I have the Arcadia Flatpack here and it has the same Disk which is shown at the coin up.
???

Those Arcadia versions are indeed interesting. I need to read up on it before I can say more about it, but maybe somebody else can shed some light on what Arcadia was and how they sold their games.

Arcadia is an Arcade system similar to the Magnet System (by EFOSA), that uses floppy disks.

https://www.recreativas.org/magnet-system-2427-efosa

A thread mentioning some history about it: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=94974

Pool and Rockford are the only games not dumped (in MAME). There is also mentions of Mr. Do Run, X-Soldier (Time Soldier) and Zeta Force (unknown game) but those three might not be released.

Unrelated, another never released arcade game mentioned in HoL is Dark Chamber. http://hol.abime.net/4406

It uses PLUTO motherboard, and the demo is probably lost forever.

The thing that I'm interested in is if they ended up selling 'Arcadia' versions to 'home' Amiga owners. It seems like the Arcadia versions of games work in non Arcadia hardware or they released versions that did not need the hardware. Either way I don't know how to handle that hardware system properly yet.

TCD has updated the OCS Version of Rockford with my scans.
The new Diskscan is the Version of the Arcadia Flatback, also the black Manual Cover Scan
in Misc.
If Arcadia is a different System to Amiga, so it has nothing to with HOL.
If there is a conversion of this Arcadia System to Amiga, than there must be no Diskscan, in my opinion.
If we have an Atari conversion we also did not scan the Atari Box or Disk???!!!

It's a bit confusing (at least for me ). Thanks for the scans
