Not sure if it's an ordinary zip or a disc image...

You write it to a disc using !Dimager, or similar,
available from Planet RISC OS. (I think)

I think you should be able to write disc images to disk with just a few lines of BASIC - there's an ADFS SWI which lets you write to disk address by address.

Hmm. I'll look into it when I've got the time :) Might be a suitable candidate for my first proper, vaguely professional program...

There was an article on it in, um... could have been the ARM for beginners series in Arc World... I dunno... anyway, it was a article about copy protecting games.

*looks around a bit*

Yup, that's the one. Article 9:

SWI "ADFS_DiscOp"
used here to read and write directly to a floppy disc.

Entry: R1 = 1 to read, 2 to write
R2 = disc address (0-819200)
R3 = memory address of data to read / write
R4 = number of bytes to read / write
Exit: R2 = R2 + R4 and R3 = R3 +R4

(this is by no means a full documentation; the StrongHelp manual and PRMs are the best resort here)
Taken from the typed up versions of the series I made. http://www.soup-kitchen.net doesn't want to respond though; this is taken from my local copy :(

Enjoy :)

I have managed to extract the files using VirtualAcorn by using them as a floppy disc (like you are supposed to :-)) and put them into a zip file and finally putting them on a normal floppy in windows and unzipping on the A7000+, followed by a bl:o:ody good game :-)

Yeah, and your point is?

OK. I'll rephrase the question.

What is it worth for me to send you the zip files?
