Demon Attack (PC Booter)

I'm looking for a disk image of the PC Booter version of this game. I already have the PCjr cart image, but I'm told is missing things from the disk version, such as the title screen. Any takers?

I have an ISO+OGG version, a format that DOSBox supports. Tell me if you want it and I'll upload it. It behaves exactly like the real thing, but only under DOSBox.
