Re: Archive of FSD files?

HFE ones are useful for people that have a gotek, I have converted my few kryoflux one I have to HFE and they seem to work without a problem (Bone Cruncher, Dr Who, Repton3, Repton around the world, Disc Executor).

Re: Games with problems

Hi Mick, I no longer have the original cassette but I believe Dave E (should he be reading) does, so perhaps you could ask him if he'd be willing to create WAVs for Col or Peter Van Ek to look into converting to CSW > UEF. Then we'd need to find a hacker to convert each version to SSD! Certainly ha...

Thanks for the advice/info, not having programed a nano before so I was a bit nervous to do it as I bought the unit ready made and did not want to destroy it. It was important to use the arduino ver 1.8.4, as the latest version gives an error message when you try to program the unit. I assume its no...

Re: Anyone fancy cracking Dracula Island?

looks like that tape image is also not original as the code seems to be tampered with NOP's and RTS
Just curious now what it did have as copy protection? anyone got an untampered version of this tape?

Re: Game software protection list ( Kevin Edwards )

Stryker's Run apart from having encryption to decode the main code does not contain any copy protection as such like most of your other games, the game file had 83 7f added to the file name, but most tape copiers had no problem copying this.

OOOh a recovery option is always good to have :)
Would it not be an idea to release it as a .uef file as you can always play it back with PlayUEF save having to shunt huge wav files around.
