Hey, did I mention that I have all 4 parts of Ultima VII? The three other are: Ultima 7 - Forge of Virtue (expansion for Black Gate), Ultima VII Part 2 - Serpent Isle and Ultima VII - The Silver Seed (expansion for Serpent Isle). Would be perhaps good additive to the one already there. :)

Cool! I only have Serpents Isle (and was gonna post that next). I definitely think the others should go in too! This is considered the best Ultima engine by most people and that's probably why there are 4 games written using it.

Yes it is considered as so, and many other games have been based on this engine too. Even some of the first massive multiplayer RPGs had.

I can't play teh game in DOS. Says somthing like "remove your expanded memory manager before running ultima VII"????

Can't play the game in windows XP either, says my "system is in protected mode".

I mentioned in the review: try using Exult ( It's much better than in dosbox. Although you can play in dosbox but you need to go into the config file (dosbox.conf) and change the line that says "ems=true" to "ems=false"

yeh I'm playing it in exult now
great game
I played it before but the only help I got for the copy protection was a poorly scanned map (so I couldn't read the longtitude or latitude... if I could even decypher the names on the map)

mika 31-05-2004 04:18 PM

Well I included 2 maps, 1 just scanned and 1 (same as first) on which I translated the locations. The latitudes and longitudes are visible (although barely) too. Actually it was quite fun to translate as I didn't have the runes with me so I could remember 1 or 2 from memory (from Ultima 6) so I started from there and just figured out the rest.

Yeah. The good ol' days when I had time ;)

any chance the other three series will be included here soon? :P really looking forward for those series.. share with us fred :)

Ok, is underway, only one problem though: I didn't have a chance to play Ultima VII altogether (bought the collector's CD at E-Bay ~3 monts ago and didn't play it since then yet), so I cannot write a review that would fit for this nice game. :oops:
If perhaps someone who played it all could write it?
