Day 106 – Tangled Tales Revisited

Something that has been bugging me for a while has been never seeing the end of tangled tales due to the cracked version not having the ending cracked as well. I got hold of one of those dual floppy drives this week with the 5 1/2 and 3 1/2 inch floppy drives in the same unit and managed to get it working in my HTPC. Its still not perfect, I can only get one drive working at a time by swapping the cable connector. I guess that these drives used a specific type of cable but its good enough for me to back up images of all my floppy disks while they still work.

 I’ve used a program called All Image to get a disk image complete with non-working sectors for the copy protection. I mounted this in Dosbox and at long last I get to see the ending.

Not really worth the wait but there it is. At least I know I can backup copy protected games. If anyone who reads this knows anything about getting both drives working at once let me know as I’m having to leave my HTPC in bits for now to swap drives.
