So I got up this morning and it was one of those Rainy Days :( So I decided to spend a few hours re-dumping/uploading all my C64 Disks using Rakki's excellent dump script :D

Some use Lenslok, so how do you preserve a device like Lenslok? Plus, how many times can you fold it before it breaks the plastic :lol:

You can try Lenskey, a lenslok emulator: http://simonowen.com/spectrum/lenskey/

Only works for emulation, not the physical screen connected to your C64 so not much use! Plus, I think each lenslok device is unique to the program it's protecting so you can't use a lenslok from another title. This is one aspect of the preservation process that can't easily be dealt with, preserving the physical box, manual, media and 'extras' thrown in as a bonus or essential to the title, sure you can scan/photograph them but can't easily re-create them! If only we had a Star Trek Replicator!

Great, finally an unmodified EU Koronis Rift :)
You can try and see if one of them simulated Lenslok keys work...

Good to know the Koronis Rift dump was OK!

The Lenskey program does work but only for emulators, obviously! You also need to pause emulation while you sort it out or they timeout on you!! It's also a bit of guess work as the characters in the lenskey aren't always recognisable so you have to guess!! I ran my G64 of OCP Art Studio with it and managed to get in without too much trouble!
