Hi,

What is the status of The Crystal Rainforest? I understand the floppies have been imaged what is there more to do?

Mike.

See the Preservation Status page for the state of everything that's ongoing. It looks like I've omitted the Educational titles though. From a quick check of the archive:

- provisional floppy images were submitted, which have yet to be checked
- there are no scans of the floppies, the case insert or any of the associated material

So, in answer to your question there's a lot more to do. We'd need 600 dpi scans of everything, the manuals would need collating into PDF form and the floppies will need checking.

We also need to track down the copyright holders and seek permission before there's any possibility of it being released.

An update on this. The protection checks fails on the images we've taken, we've tried Kryoflux imaging, converting to APD and direct imaging to JFD, so there's more work to be done on figuring out why the protection is failing and how to support it if it's an issue with ADFFS.
