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).

Decided to post my progress as I make images of everything I've collected. I'll be doing standard ISO's (with the occasional odd format, like for Duke Nukem 3D which has audio tracks on the disc) and an md5 for each ISO; I'll also be scanning any documentation and inserts that come with the item (unless it's a very large manual) and the CD itself.

If you'd like a specific item uploaded I can do that, after my entire collection is done ( around a hundred to 150 discs) I'll get them all online for download.

Completed
------------

Microsoft Golf CD-ROM Version 2.0 OEM
Encarta 98 OEM 2CD
SimSafari Mac/PC Hybrid disc, image is bin/cue

Coming Up
------------

Microsoft Golf CD-ROM Version 2.0 OEM Retail (manual has additional support info, back of case is different, cd is different) - coming later because of the length of manual
F-22 Lightning 3
Money 98 OEM
Money 2000 Standard OEM
Encarta 96 OEM

I'd love it if you could upload SimSafari somewhere, thanks.

Going to the BetaArchive FTP. Date on disc is 1999. MD5 hash of .bin is inside .rar, .rar set to max compression/solid and 8% recovery record. ETA is 50 minutes from now. Don't know how long before Andy will move it to the downloads folder.

Original release date was in 1998, so this should be allowed as abandonware.
Fun game, haven't played it in a long time.

Ive got a duke nukem pack thing which has the first 3 ( duke 1 duke 2 duke 3d) and some bundled trials on it. Its some bargin bin thing so it may be a diff version. I will have a look at it now.
To rip it use power iso and mixed image and save as a bin I appear to have ripped it correctly as its 130mb not 98mb for my copy but I am unable do anymore at the mo as i need a virtual machine to test it in. But dont have the time to make 1 at the mo.

test the original in a CD player, it should have some audio tracks on it. If it does, burn the image you made onto a blank disc and test it in a CD player.

Last time (before I lost the stupid image) I had to do it as an MDF/MDS with sub-channel data.

I had a look with my cd player nah no audio tracks on it. Its a special version called Premium Range Gray and one of those re release things. It has duke 1 2 and 3d but its mainly for 3d and also some demos as I said b4. I will get a iso of it and upload now.

I think I have a new copy of D3D around here somewhere, saw it at the thrift store (my biggest software source) and snapped it up. I'll have to see if it has CD tracks on it; it should.

Just picked up mint copies of Duke Nukem 3D Plutonium Pack CD, POD 1.0, Eraser: Turnabout, FAlcon 3.0, RoTT, and a bunch of 80's GT Interactive soft on CD's. Unfortunately, can't rip them until my server is finished.
