    Default Batch of old floppies--image or discard?

    I just stumbled on another hoard of pre-1990 5.25" DSDD floppies and was wondering if any are worth imaging. These seem to be related to my SIMCGA work.

    First is a batch from Softshoppe, Inc.:

    2298 Bakers Dozen
    4421 Japanese for Business/Travel
    6535 Jeopardy
    1007 PC-Tutor

    Then we've got some games

    Silent Service
    Sub Logic
    Decathlon
    Spyhunder
    Donkey Kong
    Spacewar
    Deep Space Operation Copernicus
    Prowler
    Demon's Forge
    Murder by the Dozen
    Hobbit
    Dig Dug
    Double Dare

    I also ran into a package that I had completely forgotten writing--DUET.SYS - a driver that enables interchange of SBC Duet-16 DOS diskettes on a standard PC AT or better.

    Let me know if any of these are interesting and I'll image them. Otherwise, it's off to the junkbox with them.

    Original disks or copies?

    If your open to it, I'd pay you the shipping to mail them to me rather than the junk box.

    Most seem to be copies, sorry. Probably work disks from SIMCGA debugging runs.

    Definitely interested in ALL of these to check them against the copies going into the total dos collection. Please make them available either as images or the disks themselves.

    I'll get them imaged and posted, privately.

    Speaking of which, does anyone here actually own a Panafacon/SBC Duet-16? I've always wondered about the name--does it relate to it being a joint venture or was there a second CPU option? 720K 5.25" floppies, FWIW.

    I have ported copy of Donkey Kong from the arcade version, but would like to know how a 5.25 floppy version looks and runs if you ever get time to check it out - particularly the graphics.
    Surely not everyone was Kung-fu fighting

    The Japanese language software is of interest to me

    If that DK is the atarisoft version, it probably looks like this:
