By the way, I don't remember if I fully tested my program with 11 sectors/track disks. [I wrote this application in 2010, and I can't access my ST right now]
If someone can test this kind of format and tell if it works fine, he would help me.
I'm interested in debug infos also, when sectors can't be read even after several tries.
If you check the option "Save track information debug" up in the interface, that produces raw track files that can help me.

If Fcopy is able to read the disk with one bad sector only, then I'd try to make a *.DIM image of the disk in Fcopy. It's the "Image Copy" option in Fcopy. Not sure if you need FCopy Pro for the image function.
When Fcopy doesn't want to read the bad sector, just skip it. It should not be needed for the game you want to rescue.
Or copy the disk with Fcopy to another floppy and make an ST image from that one.
The ST image you posted here seems to be missing all the sectors # 11, so it's not recoverable.
Post the DIM image or the new ST image here and I'll try to extract the game you need from it.

I have a few requests too
- Configurable tracks to read
- Overrunning Disk configuration
- Configurable read error repeats
Well, I hope you understand what I mean
