They are here: http://www.zimmers.net/tmp/partyami.zip For what it's worth, here is some advice based on my last 2-3 weeks of struggling through the other roms: 1. The roms were not always read out at the proper size for the target eprom, resulting in an image twice as big as it should be. I used a little tool called FilePatternFinder * to detect this, and correct this problem. I haven't run it against any of the amiga roms yet. 2. The filenames are SOMEWHAT helpful to identifying the rom, but you'll want more. To give you some clues, I recommend comparing the unknown roms to KNOWN roms from your other amiga rom image collections. When an unknown rom is 100% identical to a known rom, you win. When they are 98% similar, you might be looking at another revision of a known rom. When they are 10-20% similar, well, at least you know it was written for the same processor. To scan all the roms against known ones, I used SimilarFileFinder*. This was immensely helpful. 3. If #2 doesn't identify an image, then you might need to just visually scan the rom for ASCII information. If it's a kickstart or bios, you'll find information in there somewhere. However, many of the roms are in even/odd format. To fix that problem, I used FileDeInterleaver*. * all the above named tools can be downloaded here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/coffee-tools/ Enjoy! - Bo Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2017-05-26 09:01:33
