Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hey everyone!
I got the Blue Spine edition of IBM OS/2 Warp on CD-ROM off eBay and I'll image its floppies and CD.
But first, should I scan its outer box... and why?

If you plan on submitting it to the FTP, then yes, please scan the CDs, floppies and the box (make sure you follow the guidelines).
As to "why?": because we're all about preservation, and boxes are part of what we want preserved :)

Thanks.

There were no box scans however. And the log files are missing for both discs. Can you please upload these?

I'm sorry for not including scans from the outer boxes,
but everything went wrong when I was trying to scan them.

What exactly happened when "everything went wrong"? It's not difficult to scan the covers as lots of members already done that for other titles.

Well, when I was scanning the outer box... the rear part went out of focus!

Then you need to properly press down on it by applying some weight etc. As long as the cover is flat against the scanner it should not be an issue.

I already did so, but still no luck.

It's very odd considering that the scanner doesn't do any focusing and as long as you have the cover flat against the screen it will scan it properly. Can you upload a sample?

I finally managed to make decent scans of the OS/2 Warp and its BonusPak boxes,
so now I'm uploading them to the FTP.

Alright, just checked them.

Are these scans resized? They look extremely blurry and jagged for being 600dpi scans...

OS2 Box - Right Side: It's a bit blurry, can you put down some weight on it inside and retry? Same goes for OS2 Box - Top, but since it's a flap you can scan it with the flap open and put a book or something on top to press it down.

Does the Bonus Pak have a rear side? I only saw sides and front.

Otherwise it looks ok.

Thanks.

mrpijey: I retried but it did not work out!

Also, the BonusPak box has no top, bottom nor rear sides.

So the BonusPak lacks any dimensions and is only two dimensional... interesting :).

Well, thanks then, I guess someone else will have to rescan it in the future. I will try to improve the artwork as much as possible...

I guess it's like one of those boxes that are like a notebook or a sheet of paper

Maybe it's a CD in a sleeve?

Actually it's a two-piece box.
