Lost loading screen!

I drew a loading screen for my friend Paul's home made and home published text adventure Die You Vicious Fish - a follow up to his multi selling Al-Strad.

I was really pleased with it - quite a complicated hi-res (4 colour) drawing of a bloke with a machine gun shooting a spray of bullets out of the screen, probably with some fish being shot to bits as well.

I no longer have a copy of the screen, and I don't have a copy of the game either. I don't think Paul has any copies of the game left either. Amazingly none of the several copies he sold seem to have made it in to any emulation archives, so this loading screen seems to be lost forever.

Well, 13 years later, a quick Google search reveals a supposed download link for a French version of the game, which I'm scared to click on because the website looks a little shady (cpcrulez(dot)fr/GamesTest/die_you_vicious_fish(dot)htm) and, for some reason listed below that result, a much safer-looking site with a different, English version supposedly available for download (wowroms(dot)com/en/roms/amstrad-cpc/die-you-vicious-fish/53202(dot)html). I must admit I haven't tested any of these links as I don't have an emulator to try them on, but... well, maybe they work. I don't know. I'm just a garden-variety rube trying his best.

Thanks, but it looks like it's exactly the same size as the existing download I found, without the loading screen included.
