Wow! Getting them now, but from the 2 smallest archives down already, these are magnificent. What an incredible amount of work. Thank you so much, kobushi. Stunning, really. And beautifully presented on the archive site.

:D :D

I finished dowloading the multi-part archive
https://archive.org/download/Neo_Kobe_F ... 2016-02-25

But 7zip gives an error when trying to open the file with the zip extension.
The crc32 is good.

When trying to open the other parts, only the last one, z22, opens correctly but shows only "Words Worth" inside.

Are we supposed to rebuild a big archive somehow ?

Try using WinRAR - the archive tests fine for me using that.

Absolutely. But it will take some time. There are still 68,945 files to sort through.

Wow, I can't believe we've got our files archived on Internet Archive! :shock:
Keep up the good work and get some more files archived, for we are actually not done yet. :wink:

The Neo Kobe PC-9801 set is starting to shape up, so I am releasing a beta preview.

https://mega.nz/#F!jIgkXQDY!hE3FQNWl77DkzKErGdz35g

This represents the first 10% or so of the complete collection. As more files are scrubbed and organized, I will gradually add them to this beta set until the entire collection is available. Software will be added more or less alphabetically by publisher. Right now, the beta set goes from 13cm to Bonbee Bon Bon, and Bothtec is coming up next.

Files are being hosted on Mega for now, because the Internet Archive's editing interface is somewhat cumbersome. In the future, the completed PC-9801 collection will be available on the Internet Archive along with the other Neo Kobe sets.

This is a beta release, so be warned:
- These files may be renamed, moved, or removed at any time
- Manuals and box scans are generally not included yet
- Requests for specific games not yet uploaded will be ignored. Everything that can be sourced will be available eventually. Please be patient.

The majority of floppy disk images are in HDM format, which is a raw headerless format suitable for preservation. HDM files are supported in the major PC-9801 emulators (Anex86, T98-Next, np2 family). Disks with weird sector layouts and non-DOS-based formatting cannot be converted to HDM, and so NFD is used instead. NFD disk images are supported in T98-Next and recent versions of np2fmgen. Hard disk images are in HDI format. Most games have been reinstalled with optimized settings and are configured to boot directly into the game (no more cracktros or "Yam's Rance World").

Feedback is highly appreciated. If you notice any mistakes in the filenames, or if you encounter trouble with any of the disks, please post about it here.

Enjoy! 8)
