IBM floppy images collections
« on: May 05, 2018 - 11:53:46 »
Hi all,

This is my first post here but i'm playing emulators/collecting for a long time and come here often.

I'm looking for collections specialized in IBM PC / MS-DOS  floppies images. Not zip collections containing raw files/cracked version of the games but images files (dot img/ima files for example).

I've found TOSEC has one but it does not seems to be updated and really not complete. I've found on the following rom sheperd thread: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login a DAT from "The Good Old Days"  which looks far more complete but i've no idea if this collection is available somewhere.

Can you help me guys ?

Hi,

I would be interested too (in both more complete floppy dats if any, and floppy images)

Actually, i only have 2659 files that would match "The Good Old Days" dat

I can post them all if you have none so far, or else please post your fixdat, and i will post what i can.

Thanks Thx738,

It would be very cool if you could post them.

I have basically no img files, it would be a good start. I have some old zipped games collections but it is not what i am looking for.

**EDIT**: So i got my hands on with RomVault and managed to get 927/6221 imgs of "the good old days" dat by merging Tosec/Mame softlist collections. If i understood RomVault correctly, missing imgs should be reported on the attached file.

Hi

I was not very comfortable going on with fix requests on this general chat section (not suppoosed to be for fix requests i guess), so i opened a thread there:

[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

Uploads will be posted there for you

We should probably go on just chatting about floppy image dats / collections

Hi,

Got the two other dats attached (thanks again Cannonwillow  ;))

Are there updated versions of those or more similar dats ?

Or do you know of other collections that would include those kind of files ?

Thanks a lot for any help
