Preservation 64 - Archiving the past

The software is professionally recovered. Usually from magnetic disks using preferably Kryoflux or Nibtools. If available, meta data such as pictures of the disks and box content are scanned and added.

For C64 the Kryoflux streams are converted to G64 or P64 images and verified to work in a common emulator, such as Vice.

Hints for Searching

The game names for releases in the wiki follow the naming scheme used on mobygames. Pages for releases refer to retail/budget versions. For software released on compilation switch the search to search everything.


These are known, but not yet filled pages. We probably have some sources in our backlog, but for sure not everything.
