Can't complete an install in pure DOS and can't get a good BIN/CUE rip. Can anyone provide me with a good BIN/CUE image of this disc? I've got the Retail Netmech version, the "best" version of the game according to mech2.org: http://mech2.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=281
Depending on where you live most larger cities have at least one or two places that will resurface CDs, DVDs, etc. I do it all the time and it usually is cheaper than $3 a disc. The one I go to in the Seattle area does a first pass of stripping a very thin layer off and if the scratch is really bad the same machine can do a light sanding\polishing job on the surface which usually does the trick on the bad scratches. Look for a retro game shop with a resurfacing machine in your area would be my first go at it.
I am glad you found it, now if someone would send me the 3.5 inch disk image of a robot fighting game I have that contains 14 disks . All 13 work except for disk 2, and who ever heard of a 14 disk game anyway - crazy .
