Beer for Christmas

Post by yannos » Tue Oct 31, 2017 11:14 pm

Jon,

Great work you're doing to stop some well loved and important code from disappearing, not to mention the nostalgia! (for me Chocks Away is the big one. I remember pulling all nighters with my brother on it).

Is there any way to make a donation as a thanks and to buy you a beer for Christmas?

Glad you appreciate what the project is doing. If you wish to donate, we don't accept money, but I'm always happy to accept any boxed originals that the project doesn't already have. Blitz is one I'm particularly after at the moment as the project submission is missing the disc protection.

Jon,

Did you ever get hold of a working copy of Blitz?

I can't find my original disc, box etc., and suspect that it's gone forever, however I do have a working copy that was copied using Investigator II or III back in the day. I'm happy to grab an image of it if you still need it. It's perhaps worth noting that both Blitz and Bambuzle used the same copy protection so if you have either original (or properly copied) disc, both games will work if the disc is in the floppy drive and the game is run from HDD/RAM.

No, not received any working copies of it.

Yes, please try imaging it with the JFD imager in ADFFS, I believe I added the protection sectors into the recording.

If I remember correctly, the protection read code off the disc.
