Re: Interesting case: International 3-D Tennis

Could be the paper disk cleaner thing in there is breaking up or snagging on the disk surface somehow. Unless there are visible scratches it may well be fixable. You could try breaking the disk open down the join if you're not worried about it and replacing the paper thingy with one from a donor di...

I allways clean my disks before making an image. But this disk sounds like someone is trying to strangle a cat when putting it in the drive!!

The disk are in really bad shape and would probably damage the floppydrive if I tried to make an image. :(
But I can atleast share a scan of the disk.

Re: AUFIT Program

I tried to make an STX from my fully working Chambers Of Shaolin SCP image without success. First I thought it was due to some emulation problem in Steem, but the Atari Mania version boots just fine. The SCP images are sampled with four revolutions and disks written from them works on real hardware...

Demo outputs crazy horizontal mess

It's probably an overscan demo which was produced before Atari corp released the STE line of computers. Which demo is it?

You can convert my STX images to ST in your emulator using any copyprogram and an empty ST-image. ;)

Added Lemmings to my wish list... Even if my disk looks in perfect condition (I've cleaned up it carefully), it refuses to boot on the STE. And none of the archives made by KF or SCP works.
