Currently missing streams from disks 12/87, 11/95 and 12/95.
Side 0 of Magic Disk 64 images 07/89 to 06/91 have been checked against a possible protection. The images have been converted to D64 and with Vice 3.1 (C64 emulator) it was tested if the Magic Disk menu loads.
From 07/89 to 08/89 the loader has changed.
09/89 is TIMEX protected (It was not analysed which version of TIMEX protection is present).
04/90 is TIMEX protected (It was not analysed which version of TIMEX protection is present).
06/91 features a new loader system compared to 05/91.
It was not checked if unprotected disks still feature the TIMEX copy protection signature on disk.
