Other ADFs from their official site: http://www.factor5.de/downloads.shtml
The only missing variant is Katakis (game UUID: 5ceb504f-9755-5d18-9ac7-d8f140630910).
There is also a backup section containing the Turrican serie but only for the owners of the original floppy versions. I haven’t tested this ones:
Thanks for checking 🙂 The katakis one corresponds to the following in TOSEC: “Katakis (1988)(Rainbow Arts)[cr Defjam – RSi][t +3 Defjam – RSi][b trainer].adf”. So it is marked as bad there, but the tag may mean that the only trainer is bad/non-working. Not easy to tell from the file name alone if the game itself is affected/bad.
Yes, I’ve checked with TOSEC too, but despite the fact that the image is listed as “… cr Defjam – RSi … trainer” there is no cracktro nor trainer and no reference to Defjam / RSi (and this makes sense since it comes from the official site). For the rest, this variant boots correctly with the standard configuration and at least the first level is playable.
Variant has been added. We’re also working on all Cinemaware games 🙂
Hello everybody. There are some disk images of old Cinemaware titles available at the official site. Some games are missing from the db, some of them are already in the wishlist, while the ones already in the DB are different from any variant already present. Here is a list. Let me know if I can contribute with a better formatted file.
In the db, but they need a new variant (sha1sum, filename, parentUUID) :

We’ll check the ADFs and add those that aren’t marked as bad in TOSEC 🙂
Interesting post.. I think it generally sounds like a very good idea to add variants for game disks available from official sites. I did check the checksums you listed against the TOSEC database: http://pastebin.com/ch5KqhgM. Some disks are marked with [b checksum error] and several disks are not found in TOSEC. I don’t think [b checksum error] necessarily means that the game is unplayable or unfinishable, but it is certainly a bad sign. I wonder if they’ve actually checked / played through these disks. I’ll get back to this 🙂
All games and all variants from Cinemaware.com are now in the database 🙂 The variants for “It came from the desert” and “Antheads” contain images that are marked as bad in TOSEC and shouldn’t be used.
