Hey, Saccade. I'm going to check the quality of the Infocom manuals, and compare them with the ones already on site. I'll post later in this thread which are worse and need to be deleted from the FTP.

Arthur - The Quest for Excalibur manual differences. The one on site has colored covers. The one on site is divided into 2 separate downloads: Manual and Maps and Documents, while yours contains both of them in one single document. Your manual has smth extra: the warranty card and the last page which explains the story. The one on site has an extra section about "Communicating with Infocom".

Decision: I don't know.

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The manual differences. Yours is almost completely different, but misses most of the written stuff. Has some strange stuff in it.

Decision: I don't know.

[TO BE CONTINUED]


Ok, I decided, I'll upload most of them as alternate manuals.

Text Adventures [need archives for those listed without subtext]
Alice in Wonderland (finished notes, started review)
Enchanted Castle (finished game, have notes)
Humbug
Jacaranda Jim
Red Dwarf: Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers (NOT review on FTP. That one's shiter than usual)
Skyland's Atar
T-Zero
Unnkulian Underworld 1
" " 2
any other text adventures that I've missed off the list...

Incoming Imminent has been that way for the last 3 months, so read "imminent" as "when I get round to it"

I guess if anyone wants to take any of these games, then they can have the notes (if they want them) and write the review and stuff.
Don't care so much about this any more, really.

I replayed Castle Ralf and a few of the older IF games again the other day, and I think I was a bit harsh with the reviews.
I'll get around to fixing them up a bit later.

Not that it matters, since no-one ever d/l's or rates the IF games... :/

I can't make posts in the ISO Cellar anymore, so here's the mediafire link for Magic Carpet for LQ, Doubler and anyone else wanting some Magic Multiplayer Action:

Magic Carpet.zip (90Mb)



Since the filesize is less than 100mb, idk if this was gonna go onsite or what.
I put it here so we can play it sooner

I never thought someone besides me would write a review for that.

Ok, I am having problems with stealing the music files from Simisle IF the directory in which the original archive is unpacked.
Therefore, in order to minimize and (hopefully) stop this error occurring, I've changed the path to c:\games\similse isntead of c:\docsnsetts\user\admin.pete\desktop\similse....


I've started writing my reviews for all of these (along with the other 8 I have on backlog, so will have them done soon, unless Arete wants to take SimIsle, though she doesn't have the manual for that...).
I would transcript these manuals for windows, so they can be used with dos, but considering my typed manuals are never used, I'll leave this to someone else unless I'm asked t
o make them.

99% of work here is wasted by me, and I don't want to make it 100%.

The adverts for the games are ok, but I will need boxshots for the ones we don't already have.
(ie, UnNatural Selection - mines really low-res) and the Win Versions of the Sim Games).

Anyone want to help, with the boxes and the manual..? Yes/No?

[ed]
Apart from that, they all work, claim to be original (not hotu-ripoffs) and will be ready to be uploaded as soon as I've compiled everything and completed reviews over the next few weeks.
Still working on, AVS game for AB and AT and also on the online respositories.

Questions..?:
Include Manual as separate extra or manual incl. in archive as PDF/ZIP or txt?
Also - bother with Mac stuff? Runs in Classic OS

Am I also right in thinking that Nonogrids: www.nonogrids.net - www.bpgames.com - isn't acceptable..?
