SAVE OUR SOFTWARE!
by Eldad Petreanu

There  are  quite  a few sites on the 'net
with  Spectrum  software, but none of them
is  good  enough the others can be content
with simply mirroring it. Some come close,
but  all in different ways. The definitive
Spectrum  archive is still a long way from
completion.

What can we do?

*  Find  a site where we can store several
hundred megs of information on the net. Do
you   know   any  millionaire  who  had  a
spectrum  when  he  was  a kid? or is your
university  extremely generous and willing
to   risk   potential  legal  problems?  I
thought  not. This site should probably be
outside  the US, who have this thing about
software, er, reproduction.

* Agree on a format for Spectrum software.
It seems to me that the .TAP format should
be   used   whenever  possible,  since  it
preserves  the  structure  of the original
tape.   The   .DAT  format  is  great  for
multiloads    and   other   unconventional
loaders,  but  sadly  programs  need to be
individually  hacked.  Finally, when these
are  not  available, a simple .Z80 or even
.SNA  will have to do. Actually, it's best
to  have everything in .Z80 too anyway. Do
you  agree?  What  about +3 Software? Some
programs  may  require special treatment -
remember Shadow of the Unicorn, which came
with its own replacement ROM?

*  Create the perfect directory structure.
Thinking only about the snaps directory of
this  definitive  site  for  a  moment, it
seems    reasonable    to   create   these
subdirectories:
game
demo - of the graphics/sound variety
gamedemo  -  if  the  whole  game  is  not
available,  or  a demo contains stages not
found  in  the  complete  game,  the  demo
should be here
business - word processor, databases...
utility   -   any  software  for  creating
software
hardware - hardware-specific software (the
kind  that's bundled with digitizers/light
pens/whatever)
anything else I forgot?

inside  each directory, subdirectories for
the different machines can be found:
16
48
48AY - runs in 48K mode, but plays 128K
       music if available
128
+3 ?

What  do  you  think  about this directory
structure? Again, this is just off the top
of  my  head,  and your suggestions may be
much better.

*   Convert   software   to  the  relevant
format(s)   and   start   uploading!  Some
software  is  probably lost to us already,
like  several adventures with sales in the
dozens.  Let's  not  let any more software
die!

*  CD-ROM,  anyone?  This  could be cheap,
just   to   cover  costs;  a  little  more
expensive,  if  done  for profit by people
who  don't  mind  advertizing  and risking
getting  sued  by the software publishers;
or with the profit going to some charity -
what   publisher   would   sue   such   an
operation, knowing this would make it look
like a total sleaze?

Is  this  plan really that far-fetched? Or
can  it  some  day  become  a reality? Oh.
Well, never mind. It was just a thought.

Some  good  ideas there on how to organise
the  Speccy  scene! I agree on many of his
points, although using TAPs a standard may
alienate  users  of  Emulators which don`t
support  this format. Any more suggestions
anyone? ED.
