hi Chris, thanks for indepth details of the must be protected *early* disc 8)
(as BillC has not confirmed from pg2 :shock: )
your point 4 gave the game away, as mine is a flippy (40 on sideA, 80 sideB)
so hence does not need to check for a 40 or 80T drive :idea:

here is mine copied using UPURS, just checked & still copies easily with *COPY / BACKUP
so did remember rightly :D
To close this one out -- my "The Living Daylights" disc arrived. It's a 40T/80T flippy but it is protected like @billcarr's FSD. Track 2 is formatted as 18 sectors but the first 10 claim to be 256 bytes long; the sector IDs for those are in decrementing order; and the last 8 sectors are "hidden" with sector IDs 0 (and the other three header bytes zero).

Seems like another game where both protected and unprotected versions were sold.


Cheers
Chris
