I sent PM to Jimbo about pre-register this member. I hope some day this will be solved :)

Acrobat II, Backgammon2, Cosmiads M, Crash, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Super Glooper, Tetris - does not run. Missed Gemus entries?
I love Gamebase's creators and compilations

Those all run fine for me.
I have a lot of respect for Gamebase creators, maintainers & supporters.

I solved it alone. It's related to some hidden GB features ;)

Thanks, we didn't forget.
The GameBase has been in constant development since the first release.

Even though they are now in the GameBase.
The Avalon Hill games (Tanktics / Aquire) are not playable without the actual board game and counters.
There are some docs on atarimania for Tanktics, which shows the game board. :)

Acquire doesn't need a game board, but Tanktics definitely does.
You can borrow the board from the GB64 extras, as I ported tanktics to the C64 and scanned the board and counters.

I recently found some more disks you can add (if you haven't added them already):

Thanks, i will take a quick look.
But the disk names do look very familiar.

The PET GameBase v2 was just about to be released this week.
will delay while i double check those disks.

Telengard Tape was dumped converted from WAV on 26th April 2016.
Funny enough, it has same CRC as the one you posted in link.

Do you think you could convert Dragon's Eye back to PET?.
From the PET to C64 conversion in GB64.
will need editing to load the SEQ / Data to correct PET memory location.

These are the only missing games Jonbos and I are aware of, which have a 'PET' mention online or in a magazine.

Vaults of Zurich - Have C64
Time Traveller - Have TRS80 BASIC Listing
Dragon's Eye - Have PET to C64 conversions
Shootout at the OK Galaxy (Avalon Hill) - Arcade pak
Dragon Adventure - https://solutionarchive.com/game/id,395 ... nture.html
Chessboard - Moby Games

*We have the original cassettes of these (un dumped)

Tank Arcade (Avalon Hill)
Draw Poker (Avalon Hill)
Computer Stocks & Bonds (Avalon Hill)

Many thanks for your work on this guys :D
I'm very happy to see stuff like Voyager I turning up.
Concerning missing games, I'm aware of the following:

Henrik Wening (coded Space Pilot for C64), made a few for PET, I don't know if his homepage is still up somewhere, but you can get his programs via archive.org:
https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://ww ... de/archiv/*

Missing Automated Simulations stuff

- Morloc's Tower
- Rescue at Rigel

For Rescue at Rigel, it's mentioned in the cassetteformat.pdf within the zip over at Brutaldeluxe that there was a triple format release, with Apple II and TRS-80 on Side A and PET on Side B
www.brutaldeluxe.fr/projects/cassettes/ ... mulations/

The Museum at Mocagh has Escape from Morbius
http://mocagh.org/loadpage.php?getgame=morbius


Finally, I believe this hardware add-on isn't emulated, but take a look:

There are some short reviews for the available games here

Thanks for all the info and links.

All the Henrik Wening games will be included in the next version,
along with all the other games we found.

Galaxian looks very cool. :)

Just figured a way to emulate the HAL PCG 6500 graphics with the current version of WinVICE. :)
