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).

I am currently uploading the following games (unfortunately without any acompanying material, except for Jedi Knight) to the FTP:
  • Al Unser Jr. Arcade Racing (1995-08) [English]
  • Cold Dreams (1995-8) [German]
  • Flight Unlimited (1995-09) [English]
  • Lemmings 2 (1993-11) (3.5''-1.44MB) [English]
  • Pinball Arcade - Judge Dredd (1998-06) [Multilanguage]
  • Pitfall (1995-08) [German]
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight (1997-09) [German manual]
  • Jack Niklaus Golf (1993-11) (3.5''-1.44MB) [English]

I could also upload "Star Wars Shadows of the Empire (1999-4) [German manual]", however, there was one read error during the image creation process.
Furthermore, I scanned "Epic Pinball Pack (1994-06) (3.5''-1.44MB) [English]" and "Pinball Fantasies (1994-01) (3.5''-1.44MB) [English]", but they have 4-6 bad sectors on one disk each. Is there a way to recover these?

By "without any acompanying material" do you mean like no scans?

No, I meant that aside from the images, only scans of the actual disks are included because I do not have any jewel case covers or manuals for them.

As long you have the disk scans of the games it should be suitable for the FTP.

Just make sure the resolution is 600 dpi and you're fine.

... and not a jpeg. PNG or TIF should be fine.

Thanks for the advice. I scanned the disks with 1200dpi. That might have been overkill but the guide said to use at least 600dpi so I wanted to be safe.
I realized that I forgot to add a "completed" indicator to the folder, but since the folder is gone now, I assume it will be processed anyway.

It will be processed as soon as possible and if there are any errors etc I will let you know through PM.

Thanks for uploading!
