I used this program back in the day to make backups as hilariously impractical it is.

This is a random shot in the dark, but I'm in the process of doing a Rampage themed bartop and at my wits end... is there any chance that this magic artwork drive has a high quality scan/photo of the original Rampage bezel?  I'm in the process of vector tracing out the bezel in order to have the individual elements isolated to move them around, but I'm not finding any great scans of the bezel artwork so I'm having to work from a patchwork of the best shots I could find on the net all stitched together... technically it will work but I'm positive that I'm losing quite a bit of detail working from my current source materials.  I've already got the marquee and control panel dialed in, the bezel is the last thing I need to finish up before I go to print.  I'd be happy to contribute the resulting vector files to the cause.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

So once again, we find that evil of the past seeps into the present like salad dressing through cheap wax paper, mixing memory and desire.

I don't suppose the original unedited version of this was on the drive was it?  Its the pac maze someone is looking for.  I thought I had it on my drive, but I can't see it.

If you can run an ftp sever I can upload it to your NAS

I'll see what I can do ftp-wise once I finish backing up the old NAS, about 4TB worth so it takes a good while even over a LAN connection, and then installing the new. Started backup process today. A reasonable chunk of this is arcade (and arcade-art) related stuff from last decade or so, at least some of which would be very difficult to find now (eg the hosting sites no longer exist) or just impossible (eg my own separately sourced or original stuff).

New NAS will have close to 30TB capacity even after RAID redundancy (4x10TB drives), so a lot more room to grow there.

Sweet, glad it still works. LOL

I was worried about shipping this mechanical drive around.


So far, I'm enjoying what's on there. I'm fine with it being raw scans since I can quickly and accurately vectorize things myself, (no auto-trace!) and it's really cool to see a bunch of the artwork at a high resolution. 
I have this wacky idea of creating clean vectorized files of every piece of art on the drive, but that will probably take a lifetime!  :lol

Yep it's would take quite awhile to do. Sent a second PM out and waiting for a response to see if they are still wanting it - after that if they don't ( or already have it from someone else ) I'll probably just post here and let the first responder get it sent to them since I'd rather get it to someone and keep it moving.

 So if by this time tomorrow I haven't got it in the mail I'll post here and take the first responder ( so those interested in getting it still check back around this time tomorrow. !! )  :cheers:

Yep - said he didn't want it so looked like Vigo was next - It's on it's way to him as of 2 this afternoon and should arrive there on Saturday.

As far as I know it's been to You - Opt - Me - Surles declined - and headed toward Vigo.

I think Yots got it from Malenko.  Mal was the first in line, right?

Hmmm, maybe we should keep a log, tracking where it goes. Just for fun. :)

That drive went to me then haruman then yots then etc ;)

I sent 4 other  drives out into the wild, members of other forums I frequent and other ppl I know. They are also supposed to be copied and sent forward.

Be great if it could be seeded as if love to have a browse through it but I'm in the UK so postage would be a killer.

Are there marquees on it? I'm missing a few that I'd like to get good copies of.

Im more than willing to upload it to an FTP.

@Malenko I'm happy to host a torrent for a long time, but not to host an ftp site for people to pick-and-choose whatever marquee or whatever fiddly bits they want while having file access to my data storage, yet not contributing to hosting that data themselves

If I were to setup ftp access it would be strictly for you only, for uploading. In that case, isn't it easier to just setup a torrent? Then I (and everyone else) can download it easily from you without the whole FTP business.

Which means I'd have to setup FTP access to my new Synology NAS. Can't be too hard, it is designed to be remotely accessible, but I haven't done it before, so learning curves ahead to negotiate. I never bothered doing remote access for my old NAS, we mostly just used it within my local network. OTOH, this new Synology NAS seems much better optimised for remote access.  :blah:

Frankly, I'm impressed with it so far, and all I've been doing is setting up volumes and backing up about 4TB worth of files from my old NAS. Knowing Synology, setting up remote access is probably as simple as installing an app package and tweaking some settings.

If possible would like to roll in some other artwork files from other sources.

Will work out what I need to do next week, probably after our guests have gone.

Of course, if I had a copy of the drive then it would be even easier.

I donít think this is the same. Most of the art on the drive is in scanned raw form.

most of the joymonkey stuff is the cleaned up version of whats on this drive, AFAIK. Also the drive has the movie SuperBad on it for some reason :p

New member here, but if this drive has a hi res copy of MvC and MvC2 art, id be interested in copying. Shipping original drive can get pretty scary, moving internal parts and all.
