WANTED: most missing images

Since we have increased activity in imaging old Atari ST floppies, I take chance and start list of titles which still are not properly imaged. Hopefully someone can dig out something. Please image, even if it works not on your Atari or imaging SW report errors. Partially good image is better than nothing, and it is possible to make good image from multiple incomplete sources.

Son Shu Shi
Jinks (Rainbow Arts)
Fireball (Microprose)
Nightdawn
Amberstar
Maupiti Island - Engl. v.
Beastlord
Crown of Creation 3D (Falcon)
Elvira - The Arcade Game
Helter Skelter (enhanced version 1990)
Iron Lord / Ubi Soft - Engl. 3 floppy edition
No Buddies Land
Tetra Quest - Euro. edition
Window Wizard
War Heli
Leavin' Teramis

Of course, there are much more missing titles. This is just top of my personal iceberg :D

I have a copy of Space 1889 at home. I will try to image that as soon as the new diskdrive for my SCP arrives.

I've got two different Atari copies of Amberstar (English and German) but the disks are not copy protected in any way.

Anyone got a SCP near Oxford?

I don't have the English version, but I may have the German version if you need it (was sent by ICS long time ago).

Tetra Quest bad v. is at AM, so no need for it.
Jupiter's Masterdrive: please do it. We are not picky :D

I tried to make an SCP of Jupiters Masterdrive but it does not work... the STX conversion by Aufit does not work in Steem and when i write the SCP image back to disk so does it not work either... it just says "insert original disk" when booting (just like STX in steem).

Aufit disk layout:

I recieved my "new" floppy diskdrive yesterday, but I have no time to rig it up and image Space 1889 until later this week.

Here you have images of Space 1889. (Both gamedisk and datadisk)
Hope that it's okay as this was my first attempt using the SCP! :D

Seems to work up to the point of asking for documentation protection.

Thanks

When creating images I recommend to create images with 4 or 5 revolutions sampled. Otherwise there is a high chance they wont be converted correctly to stx by Aufit.

I have made Nightdawn pasti long time ago. It is in Kind of magic compil. It is in Atarimania ftp, but they not are put it online yet.

Probably because Nightdawn crashes on STE, so in Steem too. Not STX fault.

I just checked - there is no Nightdawn in Jake DIR there.

I'll keep that in mind the next time I create an image. How big is the difference in size of the scp-image with 4 revolutions?

Re: WANTED: most missing images

Figure 5MB per side per revolution. So, about 50MB for double-sided 5 revs. Using 7 zip for compression can reduce the size by up to 80%.

There is/was STX of Beastlord at AM, but it has some bad sectors. So, doing it again, after some cleaning would be good.
