Last files from my collections then I will make some dumps again.

 

 

 

Shouldn't those zip files have been named XXV (for 25) and XXVI (for 26)? Your last file in the series was XXIV (or 24)....

A huge thanks again, BigBen, for everything that you've contributed!

 

BTW, your AutoDuel ZIP is missing Side C.

Thanks for pointing out, it should be XXV and XXVI. I should sleep more so that such mistakes do not happen to me anymore.

Here is the dump of AutoDuell with all disks.

I just have a question, what's stopping Whirlinurd from being dumped? Does it have a special protection or no one has it on diskette? I mean, not even SPS has it listed.

I think just lack of access to an original copy.

Hello to All,

 

I've been out of work for a while due to an illness and while surfing the web, I stumbled upon this forum and topic.  I bought my Atari 800 back in 1981,  So I went down to the basement to locate my disks.  Below is what I have found.  I don't have any of the equipment for dumping these disks.  But I would not mind sending the disks to someone who can.  I am located in North Carolina, USA.  I would even include postage paid, self addressed return packaging. Just let me know how I can help with this wonderful project.

I'm not sure. There are more boxes down there, but the copperhead snake persuaded me not to look any further. I know I had a bunch of cartridges. Give me a couple of days and I'll venture down there. If you don't hear from me again, the snake won.

I believe the toolkit disk is the same as the one on Wiki. I have attached a pic of the disk I have.

I haven't turned on my equipment in 25 years. I'm afraid to try and risk damaging any disks. So I dont know the table of contents. If I can find the manuals, then I'll let you know.

I'd rather hand them over to someone with tested working equipment to dump them or check them out.

Thank you very much for your generous offer to loan your disks for dumping. There are a number of titles in your list that would be of interest. Let me see if I can find somebody closer to you that can do the dumping to keep the cost of postage down. I'll PM you directly with details once I hear back.

I have not forgotten the recording of the faulty images, unfortunately it is delayed a bit.

At the moment there is still a 1050 missing with BitWriter. The extension is on the way to me.

I will make a copy of the disks and convert them with the SCP.

Tomorrow there will be the conversion marathon. I have promised my friend coffee and cake,

pick him up from work and drive him home afterwards. He brings the 60 original disks for a dump

and can test the AVGCart and EclaireXL in the meantime.
