• Favorite Games from Loadstar

    From Snogpitch@3:770/3 to All on Tuesday, February 02, 2021 10:38:33
    Many years ago I managed to get an image of this 1581 formatted collection of games from Loadstar. A couple of them I really like on a regular basis. It includes Free Cell, Mine Sweeper, Shisen-Sho, Plumb Crazy, Jam, Quadpawn, Loco,
    4-Duko, and
    Shamrocks. My disk over the years became corrupted, and I have been having a hard time locating the original image in my collection in order to create a new
    disk. Does anyone remember seeing this disk image collection, or has it available to share?
    Gamebase has a few of the individual games, but not all of them.

    Thanks

    The collection was not from a single issue, but the games came from multiple issues spanning from 1997 to 2008, When you quit at the main menu a screen comes up saying: Brought to you by LOADSTAR DotBASIC PLUS!

    I found my original archive. The title of the archive was games-by-dmm.d81. My
    guess it was part of a collection from eLoadstar. Time stamp on the file was from 2013.
