12-01-99 Server Problems

It seems that our luck ran out......
There are no fully operational GameCopyZone Mirrors anymore because of too much traffic. We tried to have as many Mirrors as possible to reduce the traffic but still too much was going to one server.
So for now there won't be a GameCopyZone until we have a Fast & Stable server.
If anyone knows a Host-Provider, with a FAST connection and at least 50 Mb, who is willing to host this site then please contact
me. (it won't have to be for free!)

BlindRead Tool
BlindRead is a VERY handy tool which will enable copying of "unreadable" files (like the ones in Settlers 3, Grim Fandango, Rogue Squadron & Star Wars: Behind the Magic). The copied files will have the same size/date as the original files, it supports multiple distinct bad sectors witin one file and it is MUCH faster then trying to read the bad sectors for a few hours! The tool is in French but the archive also includes an English manual - Thanks Bidouill.
