Your right!
I don’t know what happened to games4, but it doesn’t work for me either.
I’ll see if I can do it again in a couple of days.

Thanks for these, there's lots of stuff I didn't have. I have no idea why, but at least in my copy of the zip, games4.dsk is completely corrupted. It's a 143360-byte file, just like a disk image should be, but every byte is an ASCII 255, which means there's nothing meaningful there.

Hope this helps,

Here is my suggestion about how to launch these disks—of course you could launch these disks many other ways, but I find this to be convenient:
First, in your 
c:\messapple-win folder, create a folder called
and place the 13 games disks in this folder.  There will be many more disks coming in the future.
Here are the listings for two batch files to place in the main 
C:\messapple-win folder.
First is aTl.bat

@echo off
mess apple2ee -flop1 aTalkLibrary\%1.dsk

This would allow  the launching of one disk such as games1 by typing:
aTl games1

If you wanted two disks to be launched from the same folder, the first in drive 1 and the second in drive 2, you could use  the batch file called
@echo off
mess apple2ee -flop1 aTalkLibrary\%1.dsk -flop2 aTalkLibrary\%2.dsk
This could be used to launch two disks from the aTalkLibrary folder.
If you wanted to launch the Games1 disk and the Games2 disk, you could type:
aTl2 Games1 Games2

I hope you enjoy these disks.
