This is my first post and I have a problem with an Abandonware game from middle 80s.
I made a copy for this floppy with Teledisk, so I have a TD0 imagefile. This TD0 image has a copy-protected scheme based on bad sectors, so any translation to WinImage file format fails because these bad sectors are removed (or IMA file format reader of DosBox doesn't take care of) and the game doesn't work when mounted in Dosbox (either BOOT or IMGMOUNT commands).
Some time ago, the MESS group implemented Teledisk (td0) support to their emulator, so the copy-protection scheme is preserved and then the game works!!!
I think that would be a great thing that DosBox could support this Teledisk image format in a near future to be a better emulator if possible 😉. I also think that being MESS an Open Source project suchs as DosBox, this code implementation would be easy. Is anyone interested in implement this td0 support?
