Sure. Floppy images as well?

Thanks you for the generous offer, but, contrary to what marko river said, we can't accept it since the game was developed and published by LucasArts (aka Lucasfilm Games LLC), which is now owned by Disney, a company with permanent ESA-protection. Thus, the reason why we can't accept it.

Oh, yes, copyright, I forgot about that...

Can we accept images for preservation without adding them to site as long as it is protected? I know it doesn't seems like it will ever be abw again, but still... why risking it to be totally lost.

Not sure, but I'll ask the Abandonia admins about this.

However, regardless of the answer, there is a place which accepts pretty much any old-school game for preservation purposes: the Software Preservation Society. The only requirement is that you either buy and use their KryoFlux universal floppy controller to read the disks' data from the disk drive of your choice, or use a Commodore-manufactured Amiga which meets certain requirements.

Also, in the event you're interested in the KryoFlux for whatever reason, I'd highly recommend you take a look at this user-friendly overview of what the KryoFlux is and what it can do.

Sent you a PM, DaG II. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

I created *.ima files of Italian version of B.A.T. because they have been requested to me in private (a *.ima file is a 1:1 copy of a floppy disk).
Could I upload them (first and second floppy) on ftp? I would like they replaced the zip on the site.

Thanks in advance!

I suppose you mean replacing the extra zip with the contents of the installation disks? Yes please, go ahead and upload it, we'll make the replacement.
