It certainly does! That's another one I can put into the Tested folder :)

I forgot to add these pictures to my update post.

There were originally only 4 of the grey baskets (2 for £1 at Poundland) with original disks inside, which were taken from the original cardboard floppy disk boxes that Klaz sent many moons ago. They've now doubled in number as I waded through the big green Really Useful box which was packed full of disks.

Still got a few to go through though. Working on the Kings Quest series at the moment...

Having also done the Atari Power Pack, none of them seem to exhibit the standard Copylock patterns as the Summer Pack did. Not sure which set of freebie disks were released with the STFM models first.

Now that's a few disks! Is it all games, or are there applications also? I've been looking for the "Megamax C" compiler for years, any chance a copy lies in one of those baskets?

A few apps, yes. But no Megamax C I'm afraid.

So, what happens if you use an Atari ST Single sided drive to image a single sided disk?
Technically you should be using one of the recommended PC drives with SuperCard Pro. However, it doesn't matter since the opposite side is not being used anyways. The data would just be empty.

I think it was the Summer pack first, then the Super pack, then the Power pack.

When I got my 520STFM in '88 it was £300 for the bare machine or £400 with the Super pack, so I went with the pack as it had some decent games included.

That's all from memory of that time which in some respects seems 100% crystal clear and in other respects 100% gone. :D

Are you looking for a particular version of Megamax C or Laser C?

I know I'm looking specifically for a version of Megamax C, and not Laser C.
I have versions 1.0 and 1.1 of Megamax C, and I would like to find another version but I don't know its exact version number. Maybe 1.2? or 1.11? or maybe an alternate 1.1 version with same version number but different executable than the one I already have.
Why?
I have reconstructed the source code of both Dungeon Master and Chaos Strikes Back from their binary executables that were compiled with Megamax C, and I would like to have the exact same compiler version that the original developers have used (see ReDMCSB here: https://www.dungeon-master.com/forum/vi ... hp?t=29805 ).

I uploaded Zero Issue 31, Disk 26.

It looks ok to me, and the ST/Amiga/PC demos all seem to work.
Can someone else confirm??

I have moved this into the repository and have tested dump0 in steem and the ST side of the disk works fine.

Sorry if this has already been asked, but there's a lot of info in this thread.

I've built my Greaseweasel today, and done a quick test to ensure that it's all working okay (it is).

I've got some original disks that I'd like to include in the repository. Can someone confirm the process? So far, I've got:

Make a scp image with 5 revolutions per track.
Check in AUFIT to confirm the image is good.
Test the image in STeem.
Include a bitmap of the disk layout from AUFIT.
Include a text document detailing as much info as possible.
Add to a .7z file and upload.

Am I forgetting anything?

TIA

Doesn't just have to be text! You can include a picture/scan of the disks/box etc if you like, and have them, too.

But it looks like you're ready to go :)

I like to include a png from Aufit and HxC, though, the HxC .stx files often don't work, so I often don't include that.

You pretty much have the process. :D
include your forum name in brackets in the .7z filename is useful to track who provided the dump.
Images of the box and disks are also useful but not a requirement for adding to the repository.
If disks look clean in AUFIT then no need to check them with HxC Floppy Emulator.

You can either PM DrCoolZic and ask for write access to the Mega repository which will require that you set up a Mega account (if you do not have one yet) or you can use my Dropbox link to upload and I can move them into the repository for you.

It is good to see others joining us and look forward to seeing what disks you are dumping.

One more question. I notice there are a feww duplicates in the repository already.

Looking through the files, I also have about a dozen titles that are already imaged. Is there any mileage in me doing them as well, or is one extract enough?

It's never a bad idea to image more.

Perhaps the other persons dump is bad (and no one noticed), needs to be cleaned, or is a different revision or even a different language than yours.
Or, your own disk may have gone bad, and you didn't know.

OK. There must have been another war sim that I spotted that was German release. Probably one of Klaz's original disks from way back when.

I'm still waiting on access to the repository, so in the mean time I've been working on some this morning, and have uploaded them to your Dropbox link.

All have been tested with STeem (with the exception of Audio Sculpture, which seems to be a known problem title).

If anyone wants to take a look and check that all is right, then I'd appreciate any feedback.

I did note from AUFIT that Ballistix seems to have one formatted track on the second side of the disk.

Also, the disks for SEUCK are just... odd. But it seems to work fine in an emulator.
