I'm after the same PC-98 collection for gamebase as well. I've yet to find a working link. I have however found this link which is a software and games dump for the NEC PC 98.

Since the GameBase release, the original huge collection of disks from a Japanese BBS, has been repacked along with every other dumped disk available online by NeoKobe.
This is now the must have set for any PC9801 fan.

However there is one small downside for using this collection (as is) with GameBase...
The way it is packed.
Running a few CD's, HD's the required boot disks are in a separate archives.
so they need to be unpacked and loaded manually.
which could be a problem for those that want to just click the mouse and play.

Multi-Disk game files could do with a rename, so the GameBase script can auto insert the correct disk in drive B.
But that's not a big deal for people who understand Japanese. ;)

The neo-kobe collection when unpacked, ready for use with gamebase it is close to 80GB. :shock:
so a repack and reupload to MEGA is well over the 50GB size limit.

If everyone downloaded and unpacked the collection, a batch file could be made to rename and repack the problem multi-disk files.
every CD, HD requiring a boot disk game could be left unpacked to speed up the loading from the "gamename" folder.
All single disk and installed HD games can be left alone, as they will run without any problems. :mrgreen:

Is there a PC-88 gamebase available by any chance?
