I am not sure if I have seen any dumps made with your setup.
I can confirmed he did quite a lot and of excellent quality. Thanks Brume
I may have found an interesting case for you last week-end. I imaged a lot of games, and of them gives troubles to Aufit. I'm sending you an email atm.
Got Starglider 2 - Short feedback
Quite interesting indeed Side 1 is using a lot of nice protections but it should be ok
Problem is on side 0 Track 0 and 1 needs more analysis
But track 02 to 78 are quite interesting first the gap are full of invalid char F7 but the interesting part is the ID segment
For example the first sector starts with A1 A1 A1 FE F7 F7 F5 F7 02 72
The first 2 F7 are the track and side number (both invalid cause normal bios read to fail) the F5 is the sector number (245 also invalid), the F7 is the track size (also invalid) followed by valid CRC
What is interesting is the size. normal value are 0 to 3. I was experimenting with invalid size values in Aufit and the release version was incorrectly setting the size to 512 instead of 1024.
I have corrected the problem. Here is the stx generated that seems to work but could not go very far as it is asking for information from a book I do not have
Although the program seems to work like that the tracks 01.0 and 79.0 are strange strange.
This game packs a lot of interesting protections
