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).

Re-upload of Microsoft Encarta Virtual Globe 1998 Edition.

I was asked to do a redump of this with more proper scans and a redump of the Media.

I've bought a new scanner which helps a whole lot. I've used 1200DPI + TIFF extension. It's definitely a match.
I've used DD to image the CD in IMG format. I run Debian 8. Skanlite is a great piece of software for scanning.
I also run kernel 4.9 so DD is the latest version available.

Media : https://mega.nz/#!OUY1SKbL!YHyk3pTpAWpG ... zzI65bpuZI
Scans : https://mega.nz/#!eRYVxRpD!UUFynGJaNsGf ... Bq0YyG9Je4

Sorry it took so long, it crashed yesterday at 77% I had to start over. Today it kept failing at 87% but it continued even though it kept failing.
Enjoy! I'm also aware that the Jewel Case is cracked but that is the original case it came in.

Cool, especially as I'm currently interested in old reference software like this. Thanks for the reup.

Except that DD is a part of GNU coreutils. I could be running coreutils 8.27 on 3.10 if I felt like it...

But nice upload, thanks :)

I compile a million things per month, did not feel like compiling the kernel neither coreutils. :P Of course a million is an expression.

Thanks for uploading, but back cover scan is missing, front cover scans are cropped too tightly, same with the disc scans. Disc dump also lacks any subchannel data or track listing. All in all an adequate dump for the general sharing, but not for archiving.

I apologize. I thought the cropping thing which the program does by itself by detecting what is being scanned would be beneficial.
I'll start over the scans but the media itself is ok?

As mrpijey said, your media dump lacks subchannel data, as any dump made with dd. Proper dumps for optical media can only be done with Alcohol 52% or 120%. A clean portable copy is available for download in this site.
