I am glad that the download is available again for this game. As I recall, it was not as good as EoB1 and EoB2, but playing EoB1 and EoB2 did not feel complete without playing EoB3 as well. Too bad the series stopped afterwards. Same thing with Lands of Lore.

Hi,

I have the fanpatched version of this game; i.e. running with the AESOP/32 instead of the AESOP/16 engine. At least for me, it made the difference between it running unbearably choppy and almost perfectly smooth. To my knowledge, it is also harmless and stable, but I can't really vouch for that.
SUMMARY: PATCHED VERSION IS BETTER

However, getting a hold of this version involved nearly arcane magics, including, yet not limited to digging up a weird, cached version of an old thread, http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopi...ighlight=aesop , as well as carefully handpicking and downloading a bunch of files, and running an obscure .bat to rebuild the eye.res into a 32-bit version.
SUMMARY: PATCHING IS RATHER INVOLVED

What the patch essentially does is substitue the runtime-engine with an improved version, which never shipped with the actual game. I don't see any reason one can't just provide a download for the patched version, which should run smoothly after only unzipping. Unfortunately, seeing as the main data file for the whole game is different in the patched version, I can't see any way to provide just a small patch.
SUMMARY: I REQUEST THE PATCHED VERSION TO BE ADDED TO THE DOWNLOADS. IT RUNS PERFECTLY WITH 15000 CYCLES IN DOSBOX.

To see the difference between patched and unpatched versions, I recommend these two links:

Correct me If I'm wrong, but is this a Westwood game published by SSI only.
Even looks like Lands of Lore 0.5...
