Re: Trying to restore Monkey Island 1 big box game ..

I'm curious if you used any disk cleaning method(s) before reading any of these disks? 3.5" disks can be a real pain when something goes wrong. They can't quite be rinsed out like 5.25" disks, they are very hard to get dry.

Re: Req: Retry after Imaging

It sounds like what you want to do is create a format guided flux stream dump at the same time you decode your image. From the GUI, one just selects "multiple" as the format, then "Kryoflux Stream Files, format guided" in addition to whatever decoded image format you want. The manual has instruction...

Re: Need advice on how to recover 5.25" floppy

The kryoflux can dump C64 disks either as a preservation stream file or in G64 format. G64 is used by some emulators. I don't have any C64 disks myself, so I don't know if the G64 format supports copy protected disks or how well, or if any current emulators have support for kryoflux flux stream dump...

Re: POLL: Problems KryoFlux under MacOS

Which is why I asked if there was a specific bug report. With many projects the best/only way to get attention is to add constructive information to a bug report. I don't do Apple stuff so I don't know exactly how they handle it, but a bit of searching suggests they have a bug tracking system that r...

Re: POLL: Problems KryoFlux under MacOS

I am not turning this into a politics discussion, but frankly again Apple needs to fix their backend. Nothing political about it. If there is a genuine bug in their OS then they simply need to fix it. People just need to know to direct their energy and fustration at Apple for the best hope of resol...

Re: Dumping Eye of the Beholder PC problems (copy protection)?

Yes, -k2 is the way to speicfy double stepping from the DCT program. -dd is a very confusing command because it refers to the the digital logic line level rather than the density itself. -dd0 = logic line low = High Density on normal PC drives -dd1 = logic line high = Low Density on normal PC drives...

Re: Dumping Eye of the Beholder PC problems (copy protection)?

Only use isopropyl alcohol as "the big guns" if needed. Just start with water and clean any visible spots or grime on the disk. Sometimes, tough sticky spots requires alcohol, but isopropyl alcohol has a tendency to remove oxide on flaking or scratched disks. Off hand, I would not recommend anything...

Re: Dumping Eye of the Beholder PC problems (copy protection)?

Copying using flux streams will introduce additional "noise" on the copy. So it could be a marginal read error from the original either due to minor damage on the original disk or some minor anomaly in the way the disk was written. The original may read fine in a real drive or decode with the kryofl...

Re: POLL: Problems KryoFlux under MacOS

I assume there is/was a bug report open with Apple then? What is the status of it?

Re: Installing KryoFlux in Windows 8 / 10

So just to be clear: Does Kryoflux work or not work under Windows 10/bootcamp on current Mac hardware? Is this MacOS 10.13/10.14 bug the the same or a different bug than the one that broke things in 10.11? (I wouldn't know, the only Macs I have are PowerPC :P ) Could someone post the technical detai...
