Is Silicon Dreams UK version same as US version on the Amiga?

Post by BarryB »

Bought this recently and the disk is corrupt, 1 bad sector on 3 tracks (the infamous 'clicking' noise) and someone has deleted most of the files off the disk for good measure :lol: Disk Salved the disk and compared to IPF 1415 which is the US release, and the file sizes are the same and file contents match when byte comparing, only file corrupt is worm/gamedata.dat as that's where the 3 bad sectors lie!

So, if the file contents match, did the UK/US retail releases contain the same duplicated disk?

Possibly... the only way to know for sure if both are dumped.
Right now, given what your describe, it's also possible that someone simply replaced the files using a US disk, crack etc as a source - unlikely, but can happen, especially in ebay world...

It was off Amibay! I'll upload what I've dumped so you can check what a mess it is :)

Well, it's even worse then, as someone who is into Amiga computing fixed it :)

All I really want to know is, from my dump, how does it compare to IPF 1415? Is my dump totally modified, so written back then files deleted or the same duplication run as 1415 or not?
