Lost and found

Is there a long-lost production you'd very much like to get your hands on again? We might be able to help.

Have you found in your personal collection or online some demoscene material that was believed lost? Let's celebrate!

Please share it with us in this thread!

Excellent idea for a thread!

skarab: I did some preliminary checking (as I'm sure you have done too), and it seems it was not even listed on your website at the time (http://web.archive.org/web/20050507142914/http://kstorm.org/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=3) and the download link provided is as I'm sure you figured out not in the archive at all.

I guess we need to find someone who didn't delete it from when it was available, I guess. So, anyone wants to have a look through their collections? :) The filename was likely dworld.zip, going from the download link over at Pou√ęt.

Thanks, it will be hard I guess.

I wonder if I have this one on my disks: https://demozoo.org/productions/33240/

People are likely to have prods (and browse the page) from parties they attended, maybe the "lost" tag should be visible in the party view as well...

rmd: Not a bad idea - and if you do have that item, then please - share :)

A couple of lesser-known releases that were recently recovered by Lotek Style and myself from the depth of our respective hard drives:
Year 2006 Democard by Syn[Rj] (2006): https://demozoo.org/productions/8253/
Change by Creators (2001): https://demozoo.org/productions/201529/

Most of my old DOS disks are formatted in 1.7 megs instead of 1.4 megs, can't remember how exactly. some TSR program.
Anyone has an idea how to read them on a modern computer?

rmd: A quick google tells me it was a Microsoft thing, actually, and it seems the 1.7MB floppies were pretty common. I'm not expecting we'd have trouble getting them dumped at the very least, and if the format otherwise is pretty much normal, I think they'll be readable by most software. Happy to give it a go if you need/want something dumped :)
