Hi All,
My MI1 disks have become corrupt, is anyone willing to send me disk images. I have originals, not looking for something I didn't buy (see image below).
Thanks,
J

Hi, good evening! May I ask which language version are your diskettes of?
I'm asking, because some of us have played the localized, non-English versions only.. 🙁
If we know the exact version (language or EGA/VGA release), we/one of us might be able to send you some unmodified backup copies legally, I believe.

Hi Jo22, thanks for the reply, my copy is the English VGA version.
I'm annoyed at myself for not making my own images before the disks corrupted 🙁

Never read of write on very old floppy disks.

Best is the archive them directly with an archive program for diskettes.

~ At least it can do black and white~

One of my MS-DOS 6.2 discs failed. Fortunately, I have back-up images of every version of DOS and Windoze up to Win 95. My biggest problem is all my CDRs of software dating back to the 90s. Just started buying archival quality discs to try and repair my software library.

Yes, most of my floppy disks are archived, but not these. Shame I was looking for a 30th anniversary playthrough.

I should note that the disks say VGA, and there is a VGA option from Monkey ? but this is a 16 color version of the game. no, simply not the case.
Thanks,
