One of my favorite things about civ2 was the High Council. For obvious reasons this feature has been deleted from the CD-rip that is on the site. My question now is as long as you have the avi files for the high council is it possible to reintegrate them back into the game? If so how? And if possible, would Kosta be willing to put those avi files on the site (I can get those avi's)?

yeah I was thinking about that
I love Civ2 but uninstalled it because it felt very incomplete

Just looked at how much the AVIs take up - 282 megabytes! :shock:
I have a potential location where I could upload it for you guys if you REEEAAAALY want it :)

That much????? Wow, I was thinking it would be maybe 30mb's or so. Those vids where tiny. Probably uncompressed avi's then. Not worth the trouble of putting that up if oyu ask me.

If you have the Original Civ2, just place those vids in a directory... just like in the original installation..

I have original Civ2 but I don't know how I can give the files to you.

I would like those files
I would love to play the old game in its complete form, for old time sake
however if it is that impossible to put on... ah well

I'll zip those files and see how big they are. If they reach a civilized size (around 50MB), I'll send you personal messages with the link!

in return I'll see if I have some old abandonware games around here
well i've got A4 network$ which is a lot like transport tycoon
I know it was never released in the US and was sold in a select few european countries
however it was a commercial game in Japan and has a new sequel (in 3d)
so I don't know if it counts as abandonware... I got mine with a magazine
its a CD though

I also have Netstorm:islands at war, a rather unknown strategy game... actually its more like a puzzle game
you wage war by building bridges and offensive-towers... the point of the game is to build a bridge to the enemy island, while using the towers to destroy the enemy towers and stuff... you eventually have to sacrifice the enemy priest... got that game with a magazine aswell

Return to Zork is somewhere in my room

and sim city 2:network edition

I CAN GIVE YOU RTZORK! I love that game!!!

21-03-2004, 06:52 PM
yeah i found it again
didn't work that well... but I haven't really tried everything to make it work well
I don't have such fond memories of the game myself
as I recall it was a depressing and strange game.
I mean is it just me or was the game constructed so that if you would make one mistake the game would continue but you wouldn't be able to continue really.

My fav quote: Want Some Rye? Course you do!

22-03-2004, 03:53 PM
how odd
I was going to post that at the end of my post (as it was my favourite quote) but I forgot what he said exactly (only the way he said it)
thanks, I was thinking about that all this time
"want some Rye? 'course you do!"
haha... excellent
but jsut after that you go to that damn west part of town
now that was a depressing part (not to mention the off-tune music you hear while in that damned hedge-maze)

Whats funny is you die if you fail the test! What the hell? Why do you die?!?!?!?

we'r drifting a "little" offtopic here...
Do you want me to set you up in a new topic? Can easily be done...

23-03-2004, 04:22 PM
well I'm just waiting for a reply

(about the test: its obvious that mrs. Peepers eats you afterwards :roll: )
