diskettes are copy protected, so I can not make disk image ...

Everything can be cracked Wink

Here is info on cracking the Broderbund protection on Apple II version of Toy Shop:

I believe there was a version of Copy II+ and possibly even Nibbler for Mac+

I'm sure we can find a way to crack it. My main concern is getting the docs scanned into PDF. If there's not a hack already documented, I can usually make enough of a disk image for someone more knowledgeable like Gael_FR to hack. There are Mac Garden users in Europe who might like to work on this, too.

I bought this on eBay recently (was anyone on the Garden the seller?) I've imaged what I could of the disks; if anyone wants to have a look and try to hack them let me know and I will e-mail the file. Also I've found a very large PDF scan someone posted of most of the manual together with the printouts of all the toy designs for the C64 version, though they should be the same, and this site: http://papertoys.us/

UPDATE: Here's my copy of the PDF manual I found on the web--

Does yours start with "slomacuser"? Shock I'd forgotten all about this post when I bought it on eBay; I was busy winning quite a few auctions. My budget's pretty much done now though, so I'm playing catch-up with my backlog of abandonware uploads.

Did you ever get this installed on a hard drive? It might be easier to hack that then to try to image the disks, and I don't think my equipment is quite old enough to get this installed with it's copy protection system...it just crashes. Or at least it did when I tried. I should spend some more time with it soon.
