Hi again,

here my last contribution for now, I uploaded all my images which differ from ones already in the TOSEC dat, or which differ from the ones uploaded by vicvan.

Here the archive:

And here the description:

Castles (3,5")
My images have different checksums than the ones from vicvan. Can be that it differs, because my version is the european version.

Die Hard (5,25")
Disk 2 has a different checksum than the one from vicvan, the 1. disk is the same checksum.

Legend of Kyrandia - Hand of Fate (3,5", German)
All 8 disks have different checksums than the ones from TOSEC! I'm sure my dump is perfect!

King's Quest IV (3,5")
Also different checksums on all disks, think my dump is perfect.

Links 386 Pro (3,5")
1. disk has different checksum than the 2 by vicvan, could be a 3rd different version, other disks are the same.

Larry 2 (5,25")
1. disk has different checksum than TOSEC's and the one from vicvan. Mine should be perfect, nothing modified (no resource.cfg)! Other disks are the same.

Larry 3 (5,25")
All disks completely different checksums than the one from TOSEC. Perfect dump!

Pizza Connection (3,5", German)
Both disks have different checksums than TOSEC's, which have modified bootsector. Mine are perfect (I think...  ;))

Syndicate (3,5", German)
Couldn't check the images from TOSEC. Can someone check and tell if it's different or not? Should be perfect dump!

X-Wing (3,5")
5th disk differs from TOSEC, all other are same. The images from TOSEC say German version, but it's not! It is all englisch, but it is the version which was sold in Germany!

And now finally all dumps from TOSEC or vicvan which I can confirm as perfect dumps.

Battle Isle (3,5")
Die Hard (3,5")
Doom 2 v.1666 (3,5"), alternative version from vicvan
Populous (5,25")
Populous - The promised Lands (5,25")
Police Quest 1 (5,25")
Wing Commander Privateer - Righteous Fire (3,5")
Wing Commander Privateer - Speech Pack (3,5")
Sim City 2000 (3,5")
Spear of Destiny (3,5"), alternative version from vicvan
X-Wing - B-Wing (3,5", de)

Thanks dosjunkie. Would you like to have other place to up your contributions instead of uploading it to rapidshare and similar sites?

Sure, that would be good. I am a little sceptical about Rapidshare or other fileuploading systems concerning the safety. Best would be you PM me about it.

5. Disk:   EA69F9E6932081A5B7CD6C820774EF03432DF88D

This is a different version than the one already in the DAT!

And now the images from me with different checksums or other differences:

Beneath a Steel Sky:
First of all, the version in the TOSEC DAT is NOT the French version! It is the European version which i have too. It is in 3 languages, english, german and french. The 1. disk differs in checksum (mine is 3DAC77D62ED140CA87F659EBAAB0131A7A4DA670), all other disks have the same checksum like mine. I uploaded all my images.

Bundesliga Manager Hattrick:
I have the 1 disk version, in the TOSEC DAT is the 2 disk version. My disk has the same files as the 1. from TOSEC, only the file "install.exe" differs in filesize and so does the checksum (mine is 18610925262D411F3184F835B60F8A1FCAEF2CDE). I'm not sure, if it is a completely different version...

Sam & Max - Hit the Road (de):
The 1. disk from TOSEC is modified, it has a Windows 95 bootsector and the files all have an "access-date" dated in 1996 stored in it. My dump from the 1. disk (CBBB19389DCD0B5621663F0CA96FC3B77B869552) is perfect, it is not modified. All other disks are the same as mine.

All files are uploaded on ftp.

Before I forget, when will the new .dat be released? I know, when I always upload new files, it will never...  ;D I would only like to know how far the work is done there.

See ya...

Dosjunkie,  You are finding different crc's for some games as the existing ones in TOSEC were originally .img and have been renamed to .ima.
I am converting them to .ima so they are correct.  There are also files that were simply added to a winimage blank disk which need to be addressed.

As for the new dat it is coming along slowly.  So far i have added about 2500 new images and renamed most of the old ones.  I have many images left to add so am waiting to get everything sorted before releasing a new dat.
