    I think he DCC'd the contents, or part of it, to me. If anyone wants it I can upload it somewhere.

    Do you need a 50pin SCSI or 68pin? I have a 50pin card that I can give ya, just pay shipping.

    I reccomend Adaptec 2930 , though most SCSI cards do the trick, it's only a handful of models which have problems. Adaptec are the kings however, even though Sega reccomend the 2940 it's not a good idea, it will work and all but you will need a SCSI 3 68 PIN - SCSI 2 50 PIN converter, whilst the 2930 has native SCSI 2.

    hehe yeah.

    I wasn't too keen on distributing the files in the 1st place when I did have the kit, however seeing as I no longer have the kit the files are no longer mine to own, if you want the contents of that HDD with the 3 Unreleased games you should speak to adam-james :smt023 Not like the files will ever boot or anything ... Videos were put on Yakumo's FTP though :smt033

    Because I didn't want to, atleast not to the masses, especially then seeing peeps on eBay making $$$ selling them on CD-R. I sent the files to a handful of people I knew I could trust and who would respect my wishes not to send the files to anyone else. I owe the public domain nothing, so the public domain should expect nothing. Besides, the games were incapable of EVER working and as stated the contents are no longer mine .... though I did send the GP500 videos for Yakumo's FTP when I had the kit ;-)

    A large worry.

    Anyone think that some of the games can be finished , the rights bought and released, like sega cd games were?

    GP500 had some corrupt archives, Actua Soccer 4 prototype seemed to be a WinCE game but had serious issues (actually booted on PC too - badly!) and some files were missing, and the other game Warheads only really had the GD Workshop project and nowhere near enough files to ever go anywhere, probably as most were either not made or on the dev PC. The company no longer exists either which doesn't help, but it may be easier just to port the PC version of GP500 with the aid of the WinCE Toolkit 2.1 :smt033

    Did you go for the Adaptec 2930 like I reccomended, or did you go for the Sega reccomended 2940 + cable converters?

    I got the 2940 pro, they were so cheap and I have all external converters on the back of the units.
