  2. Hi @ParanoidLittleMan I have the disks for Miami Vice but as this seems to be a rare game and I do not have the copy protection character card used to protect the game, perhaps you could work your magic and create a hard disk version which does not need the missing character card? Here are the floppy disks in .ST format and manual: Miami Vice disks.zip Miami Vice - User's Manual.pdf
  3. Greaseweazle flux would also be an option and connects a floppy drive via USB to a PC. The original F1 Greaseweazle's are relatively cheap to build. Alternately, you could buy one of the newer models. You can then dump your floppy disks to SCP flux dumps. These can be converted to Pasti STX using HxC Floppy Emulator or AuFit.
  4. It is DrCoolZic's AUFIT tool. Works with SCP and Kryoflux dumps. https://info-coach.fr/atari/software/pc-projects/Aufit.php You can also use the HxC Floppy Emulator tool to get a similar disk view.
  5. Track 25 on side 0 is not 100%. One more re-dump may resolve this. The other tracks look fine now.
  6. Disk 1 looks to be incomplete dump. There is a good Blood Money SCP dump in the Flux repository you could use to repair this disk with.
  7. Okay, I would recommend continuing with other disks and come back to this one later. What are you using to create SCP dumps? Greaseweazle or Supercard Pro? What floppy drive are you using?
  8. Disk 2 could do with re-dumping and maybe a clean. The orange bits indicate dirt or bad flux elements. Re-dumping the disk may work, if not it would need a clean.
  9. Side 1 of the disk looks like it is dirty or has mould on the surface. You can try using isopropyl cleaning alcohol on a cotton wool bud to gently clean the magnetic surface on the top side (with label).
  10. I note that your SCP dumps are only 2 revolutions. I would recommend at least 3 revolutions and ideally 5 revolutions as in the past less then 3 have sometimes not been able to work with weak bits etc.
  11. With the uploads transferred through my dropbox link, I check that the dumps are not bad and of a reasonable flux level. I am no expert but the dumps I transfer are of acceptable levels. In terms of which dumps works with what version of TOS, a preservation dump doesn't care as it is a raw capture and matches whatever the original disk worked with. It would be better if other supported preservation, as you say, someone must have originals for games like Son Shu Shi and Jinks. With Greaseweazle, Supercard Pro and Kryoflux, the process of dumping disks is now easier.
  12. For SCP and Kryoflux dumps, there is already an active preservation/sharing option available here: https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=104&t=28228 The Repository Mega share link for shared dumps is here: https://mega.nz/#F!9RJixYhI!ozJAY06nUpYj2vzpuWORRg I can upload dumps to the repository if you would like them added. I have a dropbox link which allows you to add dumps and I then move them over to the Mega repository. My dropbox upload link is: https://www.dropbox.com/request/DTUu6HMB7ojWWK4xjhjS We welcome any contributions to the repository.
  13. RGBtoHDMI is now possible on the Atari ST: https://github.com/c0pperdragon/Amiga-Digital-Video/issues/6 https://github.com/hoglet67/RGBtoHDMI I have built this and connected it to a HDMI monitor. Works and looks great. Downside, these have to be built ATM so you need good soldering skills. Until someone starts selling them assembled probably not an option for most users. You do still need to socket the Shifter chip (if not already there) and connect the HSYNC and VSYNC to the shifter adatper.
