Re: Soft Rock Games Collection Help needed

Thanks a lot for your reply, I was indeed looking for an iso of the CD since mine is damaged beyond repair, but the standalone games will work fine as well. Hopefully someone else might chime in later and be able to help me out with the CD, if you ever come across your CD please remember me :). Look...

Soft Rock Games Collection Help needed

Just found out that my CD copy of Soft Rock Games Collection from APDL is damaged for good, is there anyone that owns the CD that could image it for me and send it my way (should be a rather small iso)? I can provide pictures of the CD to prove I do own it if needed, it's just not working anymore an...

Re: Corruption (Arculator) - more gfx issues

You would not believe the amount of hours I put into getting games working. I spent 12 hours yesterday just figuring out how to get Frak! to run from floppy! I can only imagine, I spend quite some time getting games to run already and I only do basic stuff, when I get into real trouble I resort to ...

That would be fantastic, I can't thank you enough for all your help.

Re: Graphical problems on Arya

Indeed the law is on their side and the copyright rights never expires, but my main point is that pretty much no one will care if the games are leaked. Yes, some do as you very well said and an example is Codemasters with their Spectrum games for instance which they requested WOS to remove all downl...

I'm trying to play Arya: The Dragon's Quest from Skullsoft, but can't get the graphics to look right except for the text. I'm running it on RPCEmu/Arculator, but I don't think it's related to emulation and most likely the game requires a specific mode, but I can't find any reference to it. Here's ho...

Re: Problem with ADFFS version of Man United

Have you set their filetype to "Floppy" after copying them into Arculator's Filesystem? (On the DOS side the filenames should end ",fce") Yes, they are both set to ,fce. I think I wouldn't even be able to mount the disks if they weren't. Manchester United doesn't wait for VSync on its title screen,...

Thanks again for all your patient to go through this with me, I really appreciate it. You should now see an hourglass and a flashing orange cursor up top right, wait up to 30secs and see if Arculator stops accessing the media. If you don't see the hourglass, ADFFS hasn't found the 2nd disc. If you s...
