This will be one of the archive projects happening here. We’ll be backing up each disk version of all of Sierra’s games, as far as we are able to. At first we’ll just be concerned with the files on the disks. A second version of the backup will be a pre-installed zip so that the original files are all present but there is no need to install the game. And the third version of the backup will be an actual image of the disk so that the disk can be exactly reproduced.
We haven’t talked about this a lot yet because as you can guess, there will be strict conditions to ensure we are getting untouched disks (many people will have used their disks for saved games, playing games off the disks so configuration files are saved, etc), but the project is under development. Also the person who is working on the imaging program is still working on it, I believe.
