I'm going to look through all my old backup CDs, there's a chance I kept it from way back in the day. It may not be all of them, but most of them. If I find it, i'll post it.

Any update on this? If you can locate them, I can add them to the library here.

Some sad news guys, I havent been able to find the backups of those missions. I've scoured my old backup CDs and they arent there. I was so sure they were, but it appears I was indeed dreaming.

Are you folks talking about the 200 mission mega pack that was available at Bill's site? It wasn't really Bill, just some of the missions were his.

It should still be available at Subguru, if not I have it on one of my old HDs.

Well, for starters I'm pretty sure the 200 mission pack was for SubCommand, so I don't know how well those missions would convert back to 688i.

To be really honest, I remember playing some of them and there was a lot "lather, rinse, repeat" in the missions I played. They were based heavily off some of the more "classic" download-able missions that were available.

So, I'll leave it up to you folks. I need to find the right old hard drive and keep my fingers crossed I can access the data (8-bit to 64-bit format can be a bear, otherwise I'll need to restart an old mother board or two). This is one of those things where it might be possible, but it will be a grind.

If you still want them, its going to take me a while. Let me know what you want me to do.

It would be great to get this file if you can manage to restore your hardware - no matter if 688 or SC

Well, sorry but I couldn't get it to work.

There might be means of restoring/accessing its archive.

You mean the file I can't read that keeps setting off my anti-virus like a pinball machine?

What do you think?
