Hallo Fusion

Adf programs read up to the 79th track of the disk by default. You could set them to read up to the 80th for example (you can do this with transADF using the END argument)

I don't know if this will help you. I hope it will (never tried it myself)

Hmm, Interesting thoughts on ADF I have nearly over 1,000 games and demos(animations)etc on CD now. ADFing works a  treat. Everything from lemmings, to the Killing game show etc is on cd and they all work fine all originals apart from one or two :-D

On the issue of preserving your originals in ADF format, maybe some of you will be happy to know that Cinemaware are back and offering some rare treats on their site. They have some of their classics ready downloadable, and this aint the cracked versions circulating amongst the emu community.

Just thought I give some of you peeps the heads up.

For those unfamiliar with Cinemaware's work. Let me refresh your memories.

Cinemaware were unquestionably the pioneers back in the ol skool amiga days and the embodiment of the Amiga gaming experience. Titles like...

It Came from the Desert I and II (Antheads)
The TV Sports series
Lord of the Rising Sun
Defender of the Crown
King Of Chicago
Three Stooges
WINGS...should I go on???!?!

Show your support to this gaming ledgend, who helped carve the landscape of Amiga gaming as you remember it. Join their forums to automatically qualify membership for download of those original ADFs, and see the latest developments, and what all the fuss is about.

All this preservation should have some standardisation.

There was a recent article that described the recent
Doomsday book ( only 15 years ago!) could`t be read:
because there was a lack of tape machines that could read the original BBC code.

It was only with the advent of a BBC emulator that the files could slowly ( with the few working tape machines ) be re-written to Cd's.
:-D
Anyway here`s a token link for the Retros
