It's VERY HEAVILY copy protected. Much like Dungeon Master.

I have it here, and can only image it using a HCDC (Happy Computers Discovery Cart). You'll need one to re-create it.

The other issue is that it used to save it's high score tables straight to the disc, so almost all original copies out there are spoiled.
If I don't answer or appear to have forgotton then email again, I'm scatty! :)

Even DBug have said this one will be tricky to HD/Falcon patch (although that was before ULS3 came out). Shame, because it is a truly great game.

Aly, I don't need protection part - if it is same or similar as by Dungeon Master you may just make regular ST image of OIDS.
I need only some files from, and copy protection is not in them if is so... So, please make ST image - for instance with FloImg. it will report CRC error on first track if there is DM style protection...
Highscore tables are not real problem - there is some space on original for them, and as game works via TOS, saving scores will not delete anything.

Please, gimme a break with ULS and D-Bug. There is a lot of titles for which ULS is not good (OIDS too). Actually, I made OIDS already runnable from hard disk. Just want to see/use what is written from authors and not some pyrate footprints. On Falcon works not, and I don't care much about it. I let it to buggers to do :D

Mug transferred his original for me over 2 years ago when I was working on a trainer....here's the old thread (the link still works):-

I'd forgotten I'd done that :)
Having sold 99.9% of my 1300+ collection of originals, I'm taking a bit of a back seat on the forum. I'll still do the front-of-house admin tasks as and when they're required but, for now, I'm enjoying my Xbox 360 time too much :)

Thanx Pugsy. It is usable and 'clean' image.
Spoil is not of course some gamesave on original but idiotic putting of it's name in game to several places from cracker.
