Other than Atari Legend :)
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

H.A.T.E. - Full title H.A.T.E. - Hostile All Terrain Encounter

Hacker & Hacker II - not linked

Hardball! - should be HardBall!

Harley Davidson - should be Harley-Davidson - The Road to Sturgis

kevin Collier - you've got a lowercase K

Hero's Quest - full title Hero's Quest - So You Want To Be A Hero
might want to add it's later title to it as well Quest for Glory.

Hostage - although you've put aka Hostages and Operation Jupiter the title screen says Hostages so you should change it to that. Hostages is the uk title, Operation Jupiter was the French and the full title for the american one is Hostage - Rescue Mission

James Pond II (Robocod) - should be James Pond II - Codename RoboCod

Maniac Mansion - isn't cracked

Mercs - players should be 1-2 simultaneous

Hi Jay

All hard drive versions of games also have the corrasponding floppy version in the archive since GamebaseST is hoping to be complete archive of games. The same goes for different versions of games like Hanks' Quest above, just forgot to put the version number in the second one. The renaming of all the games to the TOSEC naming convention is being done by RetroGamerUK so when this is finally done all should be a lot clearer.

All the other errors have now been fixed :D

Hello!
Got a couple of errors to report:

Deliverance - Stormlord 2. The game appears to begin loading at the
loading screen, but never does, despite waiting several minutes.

Jack Nicklaus - The Major Championship Courses of 1991.
When playing course #1 Royal Birkdale G.C., hole #2 has corrupted
graphics. Attempting to play this hole crashes the game.

Hi Illuminar

For Deliverance, select the game and then press F2 and enter the following in the dialogue box:

FastFloppy=No

This only needs to be done once since from now on GBST will remember the setting. Will have the investigate the golf disk further and hopefully post a corrected version.

Many thanks for pointing these problems out :D

Hi again!
Another problem with Deliverance has cropped up.
Completing the 1st level, game asks for disk 2, and after it loads the
game freezes!!

Since this is my first post, hello everyone. Great project. I cannot praise it enough. It's one of my dreams fulfilled. But since this is an error post:

Terminator 2 : Starts loading in Steem, but ends up in a loop while searching for disc b. I guess disc b is missing.

Keep up the good work.
Seeya soon.

Works fine for me. You have to swap the disk images between drives A: and B:. The default keyboard shortcut for this is the delete key.

Hi Snoopy

I'm really glad you like GamebaseST, it's the positive comments like this that drives the project forward :)

Disk 2 is present for the game :!:

Despite what the game says Diks 2 will not work in Drive B, so when the game requests disk 2 insert it into drive A and away you go :!: I'm sure I made a comment about this on the game page of Terminator 2, but maybe not in the version you have.

Thanks to both of you. You are right. It's mentioned in the game's descriptions. :oops: My fault... Still have to get used to the GUI.

GamebaseST 3.1d

Problem reported here, is still formally not solved for the game:

Advantage Tennis (M3)(Pasti Original).zip

attached file in that thread is corrupted too. "Formally" is because there are different files corrupted in those archives and the whole game can be gathered from both of them. :)
Other funny side of the situation is absence of correct version of the game above in patch on http://gbst.atomas.com
