I have the files for the Windows 3.x version of this game. I can send them to you if you'd like. I don't think I'd be breaking any copyrights since the game is abandonware(?) I can also send you a copy of the manual if you want. The game still works on XP but I can't seem to get the music to play. I get an error that the synthesizer is not found at the "default io port". It seems the game won't accept changes to these defaults either. The music is embedded in the game files and is not available in separate .mid or .wav files, unfortunately. (The DOS version is the only one that I can play with music).

This is my all-time favorite version of Tetris! Hehe, I actually own this game, still have my original 5-1/2" installation floppy (although the manual is long-since gone).

Anyhow, a question:

For (literally) YEARS I've been searching for the Windows 3.x version of this game to NO avail. Would anyone have any suggestions to a download for the Windows version?

I have always enjoyed the music and graphics in TC, and always had a hunch (or at least hoped) that the Windows version used standard graphic formats for the pics and regular MIDI files for the music -


Anyhow, thanks in advance,

Rich Nage

Many thanks, but I already received the files from Marjie -

Thanks again though,

What about supplying the Windows version files to the moderation so its available to everyone along with the DOS version?

Cheers!

@Marije and Linda
In the unlikely case that you read this: If you still would supply your files, just report here, or better write a PM to me or any other updater.

I wonder if there's someone out there proficient enough to "rip" the music - I'm sure the files are playable somehow - though I haven't been able to to it successfully.

Also, if you are interested in the Russian tales behind the game imagery you should check "Tetris Gold", which includes the game manual, as well as every other Spectrum Holobyte Tetris release & manual.
