Default shortcircuit - Games I have.

I have a Rare copy of Designware States & Traits for PCjr 1984 that I do not know if it works. If anyone wants to tells me how to get a copy to you or you can have the disk. I would be willing to give it up.


I also have gamestar championship baseball. That I have backed up.

I guess what would be the best way to image it off my 5 1/4 disk. I know it has copy proctection and I hope the disk is still good.

I see...

Well, for the disc yr gonna need a 5 1/4 floppy drive, a motherboard that will recognise it and it has IDE slots, some patience, archiving the files and maybe a bit of software:
Take yer pick
if you want to make disc images to keep it safe, in case you ever need to record it onto new medium, or for people to mount in virtual floppy drives.

What's the copy protection..?
The software, I think, is written in Borland C? So I doubt I'd be any use in cracking it, but there are a few people around who may know.
That may not be necessary, however.

Nice one geezaaaaa.

man, I didn't even notice the baseball one, I was so excited about the other one...

Forgive my somewhat stupid question, but do these games run in DOSBox or Windows?

DOSBox emulates PCjr, so they should.

Ok. That's what I wanted to know. In that case they're both [APPROVED]. Wait for a PM with FTP Access and Instructions.

Thank you for your contributions.

Well I tried to image the Designware game and came up short. I have one last try if i can get my old tandy up and running i may be able to image it there. I hope to be able to get this too you but if i can't let this be a call for anyone who has this game to get it archived. I also have a Tandy version of sierra's learning with the leeper that I know is not good anymore and imposible to find in that version. Maybe somebody will rememeber these obscure versions and games and come up with them.
