*bump*

I recently won the bid on the 3-disk FM TOWNS version of Asuka 120% BURNING Fest. Can I borrow the KryoFlux with a 3.5 inch floppy drive just so I can preserve this rare game?

Would be easier to send the disks to someone, like SPS, to do the preservation for you!

I heard that preservation societies are not a wise choice. I don't know why. Anyone have the KryoFlux I can either borrow or hand you the game that needs to be dumped?

Its not a matter of hardware nut of knowledge, especially if the game is copy-protected. The preservation societies have both to create a proper ipf...

It's SPS that built the KryoFlux... I am sure there is always something people can disagree about. The easiest thing would be finding a working setup nearby and get the disk there. As brightcaster outlined, there's tech & knowledge. Both together create great dumps.

Okay, are there different road addresses to different workers or who should I send the disks to exactly?

Unfortunately, they can't respond to me anymore. I might as well find someone in the U.S. that uses a KryoFlux very well.

There's always PM to make sure someone gets the message. :) I have been away for vac when you wrote that message.

So, please PM me your address and we'll find someone for you to send your disks to.

I decided to get two official copies and send them to the founder. But it's been several days since I last contacted them. I am ignorant of the address.
