Apple II Lawless Legends
« on: January 08, 2022, 03:44:24 AM »
Hello TOSECDev.org team !!

From what I understand, the 2021-12-31 entries related with game "Lawless Legends (Game home page: https://www.facebook.com/LawlessLegends) may not be up-to-date.

For the recall, the TOSEC entries are the following :

* Apple II - Games - [2MG] (TOSEC-v2021-07-25_CM).dat
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-02-12)(The 8-Bit Bunch)[128K].2mg (CRC:  d327798f)

* Apple II - Games - [DSK] (TOSEC-v2021-12-11_CM).dat
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-02-12)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 1 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: 3cda9401)
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-02-12)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 2 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: 63ed9757)
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-02-12)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 3 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: a8e5e8c0)

These TOSEC entries refer to the playable demo 0.95 that the authors made available online here (https://lawlesslegends.wordpress.com) on the 2012-02-12, but this release is no longer publicly available for download.

Indeed, as you can read on the game download page, the authors updated their release on the 2021-03-03. Therefore the currently available 0.95 playable demo release is that dated on the 2021-03-03.

Conclusion : consequently, it seems the current TOSEC entries of this game refer to a release that is no longer available for download.

Using the 2021-03-03 release, I guess the TOSEC entries for this game should be modified as follows :

* Apple II - Games - [2MG] (TOSEC-v2022-xx-xx_CM).dat
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-03-03)(The 8-Bit Bunch)[128K].2mg (CRC: 2917f1eb)

* Apple II - Games - [DSK] (TOSEC-v2022-xx-xx_CM).dat
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-03-03)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 1 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: 74ecc823)
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-03-03)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 2 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: 2f10ffed)
   - Lawless Legends v0.95 (demo-playable) (2021-03-03)(The 8-Bit Bunch)(Disk 3 of 3)[128K].dsk (CRC: 41170402)

Hope this helps !!

Kind regards,

Chown

Hi, thanks for the contribution and for flagging up that there's a new version. It would run counter to the aims of the project - to preserve gaming and emulation history - to remove older versions, but I have downloaded the new version now and these will be included in the next release.

For obvious reasons the TOSEC project doesn't distribute the files we DAT, however in this case as they were already available in the public domain I see no harm in making sure the older DATted versions are available to download and I've uploaded them here https://mega.nz/file/nwpSyaZA#AgirvLJpCpQ020x0WNZuEA9E3gx24rSwZ8Jm4e270vE

Thanks again, any future contributions are most welcome!
