Re: Wanted: Inlays

But I believe ZXDB already has inlays and instructions taken from other platforms where Spectrum version couldn't be found. Can't find examples at the moment but I'm sure they do exist. Yes, there are many. For example, Samurai Trilogy, that includes the C64 inlay but it's marked as 'C64' in the fi...

Re: Little bugs in the database

Next games have a ' scanned instructions ' feature in the database. But what we see is the scanned inlay again. It seems it's been scanned the wrong side: - Black Lamp - Dark Sceptre I'll post here if I find more It was a bug in my script which generated spreadsheets for adding inlays. These inlays...

Re: Wanted: Inlays

Thanks Ralf. The idea is if someone has the phisical tapes he might scan the inlay and upload to this archive. If someone misses another inlay, he can report it to this thread. Checking the inlays you provided I see only Blizzard Pass and Genghis Khan are useful, as the others are for other computer...

The only condition is we cannot use the title “Atic Atac” as they don’t want it to be confused as an official Rare game.
Well... what about Atac Atic? :mrgreen:

Wanted: Inlays

Next games imcredibly hasn't got their first-release inlays preserved (in some cases even re-releases). Maybe there are more games like them, if you know any post it here. I had a search in SC/WoS and Mobygames and I couldn't find anything: GBA Basketball Two on Two (Gamestar) Blizzard Pass (Adventu...

Re: The best classic Speccy game beginning with S: vote

The good point of Skool Daze is its originality (I don't think it was coded a similar game before for any computer/console) and that you could act in the game as you was those days, a student (and do things you can't usually do! :mrgreen: )

Re: Little bugs in the database

Another issues I came across in several entries: In many games, for example in Star Wars Droids or Booty , there are inlays from both archive.org (WoS) and SC's own inlays. The SC inlays are generally in better condition than the archive.org's ones (better scanned: colour, resolution, inclu...) so w...

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

When I saw that Free Fighter cover, the first thing it came to my mind was the Stainless Steel inlay, apparently not much to do with it, but I see a guy with a gun, a girl in black and a red car, all in a deserted plain... maybe 'strongly' based on it? https://ia800604.us.archive.org/zipview.php?zip...
