Well well well, it took some time until I tried it out. Pretty easy with ImDisk virtual floppy working in DosBox. So the next hurdle is the codewheel with the ticket number. Can't find anything on the web. Any clues or hints someone?

I don't know where to get the wheel.

So I would start from known "good" hack. Locksmith or Neverlock maybe. And only if it will not work, I would seek for the wheel...

BTW, TDC uses "official hack" according to readme. Readme claims it's on re-release discs. Try it? (It's .COM, renamed to .DAT, as Abandonia doesn't allow coms.)

Thanks for your reply. The attached file didn't make the deal, Ice Skating still broken.

Searched the net for Locksmith, Neverlock and TDC but couldn't find anything according.

I have found a C64 retail version of Summer Challenge at Ebay, but no Winter Challenge, only Sega cartridges with no wheel.

Well, if "official" hack doesn't work, I wouldn't have high hope with "unofficial" ones, of course. But still...

Neverlock.

Locksmith.

And TDC states for Total DOS Collection. That is biggest DOS game collection in the world - but mostly in "raw" form. (Unlike eXoDOS, that have somewhat less games, but focuses on playability).

P.S. Winter Challenge, if you really want to go _this_ way.

Thx for these links! Search algorithms seem pretty confused these days. Based in Germany Google didn't give any results like that.

Also for Ebay, got some US results but not a single from UK. Actually thinking about that despite being that expensive. At least this is still a collectable, pretty rare and still kinda cheap compared to other titles with 4 digit prices.

No one bought it, it seems, so seller relaunched the auction, slightly cheaper this time. Maybe it worth to contact the author and get more reasonable price?

Well, I just proposed 25pounds for the copy, that's the price I consider as worthy.

Let's see what happens, anyways that would be another part in the physical collection.

Sir, you are maniac. In good sense of the word! I admire you!

Can I ask you to scan protection wheel for the eXoDOS project? Or at least give the table with all answers, if you don't want to dismantle the wheel? eXo knows how to make interactive wheel with this data, I think.

Yes I am Anyways this will be another part in my physikal collection. Winter Challenge is a major part of my childhood and I have never owned an original copy, so never won on the higher difficulties. I will litterally act a fool if things won't work with the original.

I won't dismantle the wheel due to my well refined gross motor skills, but I will scan any possible wheelposition. I roughly estimate like 100+ scans. If you want you can get it exclusively, just tell me. I thought about submitting this to codewheel.org as well.
