Wanted: Inlays

Whether it's Mire Mare or a BASIC tape you found in the attic, it needs to be preserved digitally. Post here and experts can help to do so.

Wanted: Inlays

Post by Juan F. Ramirez » Tue Oct 16, 2018 6:38 pm

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 (Adventuresoft UK)
Bug-Eyes (Icon Software)
Cybertanks (Star Dreams)
Genghis Khan (Positive)
Gunboat (Piranha)
Iwo Jima (PSS)
Saracen (US Gold)
Supergran - the Adventure (Tynesoft)
The Fall of Rome (ASP Software)
Warlock (The Edge)
Samurai Trilogy (Gremlim Graphics)
Spy vs Spy III: Arctic Antics (Databyte)

It'd be great if someone upload any to the archive.

I'll do something similar with instructions.

I made some Google search.
Found so far:

Blizzard Pass (Adventuresoft UK)
Bug-Eyes (Icon Software)
Genghis Khan (Positive)
Gunboat (Piranha)
Spy vs Spy III: Arctic Antics (Databyte)

Some of the inlays come from another systems. The quality differs. So take them or leave them as you wish.

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 computers. I'll send them to the admins.

Well, as you say some of the inlays are for other computers. 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 file's name.

This case is extrange, as it's from a very well known company (Gremlin Graphics) and nobody has a tape of it???
