I believe the micro particles in toothpastes and disc repair kits are supposed to even scratched areas by smoothing, like sand paper.

I previously got the Bone episodes for free, the other one for preordering ToMI and the other on Talk Like a Pirate Day. (The latter was because full ToMI owners could pick a Telltale episode of their choice instead of the offered free ToMI episode). Oh, and earlier because of a tax mixup they had, ...

The game is recognized when I put it into the computer, I just can't play it. A scratched disc can easily do just that. The scratch can be a small one, making only a part of the disc unreadable. I've gotten CDs to work before by washing them using my fingers and some dish washing liquid under gentl...

iTunes is probably alright for people who don't have personal problem with it. On the other hand, for people like me, I recommend Max for Macs. :) hop -> http://sbooth.org/Max/

I haven't played the game myself yet but I'm posting this now because the time is running out. See the latest news...

What files do I need to copy from the CDs, or is there any other way of restoring the videos? What about compression, too? I don't have my CDs with me now, but being Smacker video, those would be .SMK files. The videos are already compressed with the lossy Smacker and there's no need to process the...

SPY Fox 2 datafiles

I just scored a couple of Humongous games on a flea market, CDs that originally came from cereal boxes and that sort of thing. The first one I tried was Spy Fox 2 and I thought I'd ask about the datafiles . I'm talking specifically SPYFOX2.he9 which doesn't exist on the disc, hinting it's the demo i...
