You should update the list, some titles have been copied (Albedo, Great Giana Sisters...?)
I don't see War Heli nor Leavin' Teramis on the list.

EDIT:
the full list is here

Leavin' Teramis isn't available. If you do a SCP dump, please 2 revs and it should work in Steem (maybe).
Space 1989 was already copied.

EDIT: also miss Super Sprint, G.Nius ...

Thx, the 2 revs are necessary in Leavin' Teramis because data is written over the index pulse. Now the SCP version is good (works in Steem).

FYI

Just bought a "new" three disk version of Zak McKracken from eBay. Luckily this version works 100% :D


Also interested by dumps if possible :cheers: ...

Still interested & many many thanks for the dump [smilie=greencolorz4_pdt_01.gif] .

Will check it when I'll have more free time : I'm in hurry in all senses before the 1St September ("real life").

Time to read what I could have miss in the last days too :) .

Sad to hear that a good version of Tetra Quest still didnt come up. For some reason I always missed that a lot.

I am pretty sure I should have some of these missing titles, those from the list at the first post in this thread. And certainly I dont understand the long list at Atarimania. Many of the titles I am certain we made them long ago???

Regarding Gap I (the data before the first sync on the track). I have no idea if this the case of the title that you were talking about here. But some titles depend too much on the index pulse position. They will run on some drives, they will not run in others. In some cases they will run after several retries. This is because there are significant variations in the index position depending on the disk drive.

I am almost sure I fixed the MPS golf timing issue at some point. It is a title that (without the fix) it crashes after playing the intro music, or something like that?
Are you using the latest DLL ?

Hi
I haven't tried MPS golf with Steem/Pasti, but it's indeed a game that will crash when the intro music completes if FDC timings are not correct, even when using a .ST/.MSA disk image. This is because the loader expects some very precise timings when reading sectors, including time to read the GAPs and to read consecutive sectors taking revolution time into account. In Hatari it required some very precise emulation of the time to skip the inter gap between each sector, else disk loads too fast and overrides the intro music, making the game crash.

You're right, it was with 02h, with 02i this game works.
Version 02i was available to us well after we looked at the case.

This version still has some problems:
- The nag/warning, of course
- Options "fake write-protect" and "disable randomize" don't seem to operate?
- Trouble cases: Jupiter's Masterdrive, Antago, Albedo (first tracks), Power Drift, 4 Wheel Drive/Combo Racer. SCP/CTR versions work.
+ demo Necrosys (not STX)

There is still lot of titles without image of original. At least Tetra Quest is reconstructed from multiple sources.
Atarimania wants images of all releases - so they put on wanted list titles which are imaged, but still want images of other releases. Some images were removed after reported problems with them. Although, I asked in some cases to keep them with warning about (possible) problem. As we see now, what worked not with Steem 3.2 may now work with Steem SSE, and there are some fixes in Pasti.dll too . Plus, for those maniacs making hard disk adaptations it is really not relevant if STX fails in some emulator :D
Negative feedback has usually positive effect.

Yes I have published the the 02i that was given to me by Ijor sometimes ago viewtopic.php?f=47&t=19904&p=261635&hilit=pasti+dll#p261638. But as far as I know Pasti nag free DLL is based on 02h?

Correct me if I am wrong
- Jupiter Master Drive: randomization of code before first A1 sync (similar to Dragon flight and Union Demo)
- Antago ??? Fake write protect not working in Pasti?
- Albedo: uses what I call Data Track. Why Pasti would not work? As long as read track data is saved should work.
- Power Drift / Vroom: Fuzzy Track (hard to support)
- 4 Wheel Drive/Combo Racer: ???

I suppose you need the 4 Wheel Drive's version? I have Combo Racer, but that's the original boxed version.

Have already imaged The Seven Gates of Jambala & Tangram. Need to redo Chambers Of Shaolin, since the first time, I wasn't successfull.

If someone need them, let me know and I'll upload them.

Don't have Thalion Soun demo.

Oh, ok! Thanks! Someone was asking me about it, claiming that nothing could ever copy it or crack it. Can you convert this to an ATX for use with Hatari? I don't think Steem has Falcon emulation.
