Ok, the Wiki page was actually for "Discovery" and I have "Discovery Plus", so I created a new page and uploaded the pictures there: Discovery Plus - CPCWiki

There's no link to the actual Disk content at the moment, so if the disk has never been dumped, then let me know and I can give it a try.

Bryce.


Hm, I don't have Plus in my archive... anyone else?

This was already dumped by CPCManiaco and Deepfb and it's available at CPC Power.


There seem to be a 1986 version, a 1987 one, and an update in 1988 (link here).


I'll ask them for the pictures without the watermarks.


Edit:Just in case, it would be nice to dump Bryce's copy  ;)

Heh...  :D


I can understand Kukulcan's point of view, but the watermarks defeat the purpose of his site. So I'll ask CPCManiaco to upload the pictures here.

I didn't see any obvious year or version mentioned on the packaging. I'll run it later and see what it says on the screen.

There's no mention of Splocktrans on the original version, so the additional programs may not have come until the Plus version arrived.

a doubt, of all these versions of discology, is there one that is supposed to be the best? faster or better copying protected games or with any notable improvement?

Because it is a dump of the original protected media. (last but not least, it start from A drive using |CPM)

I think version 6.1 was the best ;-)

PS: even after the huge makeover of the forum-software, it is still so generous with linefeeds :D

Creo que la versión 6.1 fue la mejor ;-)

PD: incluso después del gran cambio de imagen del software del foro, sigue siendo muy generoso con los avances de línea  :D

I think he means recent posts, tbh I don't like the change, I liked it when it only showed the most recent posts for each discussion so you didn't get one discussion dominating the majority of recent posts.

But Recents was always like that, it has never been modified... Perhaps you were looking at Unread?

Something has changed since the site went down.
Previously to that event all replies to a post were kept within the same thread.
Now (using Chrome) I see a Forum screen were, often, some replies dominate the screen to the exclusion of other posts/topics. :(

Those which additionally appear in every post I make, like this here, for example. I will write another line below here, with one empty line in between.


This is the line I was talking about up there. No CR or LF will follow!

As you can see in my last post, one additional LF was inserted for every LF is made intentionally. It's not really a problem, but a bit annoying as my posts use to stretch out vertically when I don't use really long lines without any LF or CR like in this.

If I use more CR/LF, like here:

Which is how I am used to write my posts.
Might be my style is just not compatible to the forums.

Makes you think.

Paragraphs are even worse!
Ok, I think you get the point and I'll stop disrupting the thread.
