Re: Need help from experts - "Press release" of Maniac Mansion - fake or not?

My copy of C64 First Samurai came from Mirrorsoft, but with hand written labels. Before they went into liquidation. I don't believe it's different to the game that Vivid Image went on to publish. Did come with an Amiga manual heh.

Re: The CYAN loader

As soon as he said "Thunder", then I knew it was probably "Thunder Blade" because US Gold released the conversion of it (programmed by Chris Butler).

Re: Help to find a 5.25'' drive for C64 games preservation

In case I miss them or find them too expensive, is there any devoted and trustworthy person in the European Union who I could send my original disks to for dumping and who could send them back to me afterwards, all postage costs being covered by me? Well, I'd consider doing it. How many disks are w...

I thought the guys here at Kryo sold modified 5.25" drives too? Or maybe they've stopped.

Re: Making dongles/keys

Nice photo, thanks! Now we know the resistor value is 2.2ohms!! I've got a copy of World Class Leaderboard for C64 coming complete with the dongle, the picture showed the resistor between 1 & 6 for that game :) I've also ordered some of those plugs and crimp connectors from Mouser to make my own. Y...

Re: Hawkeye c64 strangeness

After the first three releases, iirc, then there's Hunter's Moon (December 1987), Hawkeye (August 1988), Armalyte (October 1988), Retrograde (January 1989), Snare (February 1989). Armalyte definitely wasn't out by the time the PCW show in September 1988 was on, because the Newsfield stand had it on ...

Re: help with 5.25" disks

I get the same issue... but with just one disk I've tried. All the others have been fine, it's a bit peculiar. It loads perfectly fine on a 1541-II attached to a C64 so the disk is good. It's already been preserved so I don't have to worry about it heh.

Re: Bad* + Modified, no retries?

I had a disk recently (would have to go back through the dumping thread to check which) with exactly the same thing, it was marked as bad, but didn't retry dumping it. G64 of the stream loaded fine in VICE.
