As it is mentioned in a German Amiga magazine, is there anyone here also in a German Amiga Facebook group to put to the call out to?

The author of that article from what I have read also passed away back in around 2000.

@DamienD: I've uploaded the ADF-files of SpaceCab into the Zone: SpaceCab_TronicVerlag.zip
I know the guy who has the original disks of that game and asked him if he is able to provide adf-images of the disks.
That's what he replied to me:

SNIP ->
Hi DamienD,
my name is Martin Schaf (AMIPEGUSER at the a1k) and I got your call for help from "nujack" at the a1k.
Sorry, but I am not registered at the eab.
nujack knows that I have a very large collection of original Amiga Games and I am also the guy which made
the screenshots and photos for HOL. I also have the three other Tronic Games at HOL as originals.
Maybe someone read my name in the Amiga Future because I am also writing arcticles and interviews there.
My last Article in the AF149 was in my own category "Boardgame versus Amiga Version" about DUNE.
I gave the two ADFs Disks to nujack and he will give them to you.
If something is wrong with the Files just tell it. I can make it again.
Have Fun.

BTW here is a picture of the original game:

I hope the ADF-files are working correctly, haven't tested it by myself yet.
Have Phuuuun ...

Amazing!

I wish they were raw images so they could be turned into IPF's. Extremely rare games like this should be preserved!

Hi nujack,

As there's absolutely no movement on Dogfight II; and probably will never be...

Do you think you could ask Martin if he has a copy of the full version of "Dogfight II" by any chance?

I’m sorry but the game „Dogfight II“ is not in the collection. He only collected F1 and 5th Dimension Licenseware.

@Radertified: Martin sent me the following answer for you:

SNIP->
We have a own kryoflux Group in the German a1k (about 10 peoples) to try preserve Games which are not listed at softpres.
Mainly german Version but also some rare multilanguage games.
We have also one person in this group whom is allowed by softpres to check our raw streams and decide if a Disk is good for an IPF or not. For copyright reasons our inofficial IPF List is not for public, but we have save nearly 800 Games
as inofficial IPFs in our group which are not at softpres.
Because at softpres nobody has really time to test and collect our "IPFs" in there official lists, we just made it for us, and Users which have defective originals.
In the case of Space Cab I have made a stream but the the Disks has ONE Track each which is not 100% readable anymore,
just 80 % or is modified. Maybe someone made a save on the disk.
So in that case the game is not possible to use for a real IPF because the Disks are not 100% good.
It has no affect on the Game but these are the rules for using as a "good" IPF.
So we are still looking for a second disk to stream which will be very hard to find.
Greetings AMIPEGUSER (a1k)
