Hi,

I got a copy of Operation Neptune but the Program Disk (disk 1) came out unreadable unfortunately despite my cleaning efforts. It's the 720k Ver 1.01 disk.

File size

The directory listing is as follows:
INSTALL.EXE
ON.BAT
TLC\ON\ON.EXE
TLC\ON\NEP000.DAT

I have also the 360k disks fully working, so I think I can take those files from there, but I was hoping for a clean disk image. Unfortunately it seems the goodolddays collection is quite shy on The Learning Company titles, so my last resort is asking for help here.

Cheers!

Just to update. Turns out the 720K program disk has the exact same contents as the first 360K program disk (it also has hidden files I missed in the list). I imaged the 360K disk and adjusted the image to 720K and wrote it to a floppy. Works, and the installer ran properly.

Cheers!
