Copying Gateway to the savage frontier
« on: May 10, 2018, 06:57:37 PM »

I recently bought from ebay gateway to the savage frontier.
I got original disks and complete box.
The instructions say to back up the disks and use the backups
to play the game. This because the first disk is used to save the games.
My amiga 2000 has disk drive problems, and I cannot copy the disks.
I tried booting the game from the original disks, and the game
works and boots fine, I can play.
I checked the original disk, the one where the saved games go,
and it has 250k free.
I think is possible I can save many games to the disk.
I cannot back up the disks, but it looks like I can easily play
from the originals.
My question is: Would it be OK to play using the original disks,
even though the instructions say to use back up copies?
Please answer !!!

Thank you !!!

Well, I'm sure you know the consequences if something goes wrong
Personally, I would replace/clean/repair the floppy drive. I replaced my older A2000 floppy drive, for about $60.00, recently and couldn't be happier. The guy on ebay that goes by the name "myamigashop" sells nothing but first rate Amiga gear. Anyhoo, good luck and it looks like a cool game! :)
