The search for lost files

Hah, ok! I found an old archive with dos and early windows demos, but from looking through the lost tag everything but that picture seems to be already linked. I've spoken to sh^ar and he thinks he has the original archive on a zip disk in his attic, but hasn't got a zip drive so that might take a while.. I'll upload the gif to scene.org and put in the screenshot here for the time being.

mantatronic: Great! :) I have now approved the file, and linked it to the entry on Demozoo so it's available for download.

As for his zip disk, you're speaking to a great issue - that of getting old files off defunct media. We are in the process of setting up a team of people and a website for this explicit reason, to help people with that, and take care of the resulting stuff, sorting and verifying and making available. If he is willing to send the physical zip disk off to us, we'd be more than happy to dump the contents out, and take care of the files in a way that we agree on. He can receive them all back for sorting himself, or we can help by sorting jointly, making sure naturally to not share anything that was not meant for sharing with the greater world. Between us, there are admins on scene.org, ftp.amigascne.org, ftp.modland.com, Modarchive, AMP, and so forth.

Is it possible to view the lost list by platform? Specifically I want to try and try and find c64 productions which I can then run, screenshot and upload.

Nope it is not yet... and believe me I'd love to have this myself as it would boost the usability of the site to a whole different level. For now there is a ticket for this that has to be done by somebody:

Blaz: I do. I probably didn't make a download available because the game trackloaded the intro, and I didn't have means to make it available without getting into a copyright issue. I'll have a look this evening, find the disk image, and see if I can't talk to someone about making it available.
