By now I have a pretty big DOS collection, so my searches are increasingly for more obscure games and versions.

It is in DOS Collection, so not _extremely_ rare. Still, I am impressed with manuals and such. Thank you!

Wish I had known that, I've been searching for that version for years.

The manuals are included because I took the games from my DBGL installation, and I like having the manuals around just in case. I didn't scan any of them, they come from all over the Internet.

DOS Collection (and I mean "Total Dos Collection") have quite a lot of very rare versions already, so it would be my first stop in any case.

Other source is eXo collections. While most (if not all) older DOS games are in DOS collection, CD-versions and Win3 games are quite unique.

I know of eXo's collection, I've browsed it a few times looking for games. Total DOS Collection, however, I've never download it. I'll check it in the future if I can't find a certain game / version.

Thanks for the tip.

Today I bring you a nice extra... there are a number of games that only work under DOSBox with the need of a patch, usually a TSR that helps bypass a DOSBox limitation and needs to be run before the game.

This is a compilation of a number of such patches released in the VOGONS message boards over the years. They fix issues in games such as Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Bruce Lee Lives, Contra, Dragon Spirit, Fatman, Ghostbusters II, Hired Guns, Kick Off 98, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, Soccer Kid, Ultimate Body Blows and Wayne Gretzky Hockey II, to name a few.

Code:

Note that I did not create any of those patches, they are the creation of VOGONS regulars with programming skills.

Another game that too often has been "relieved" of its lesser graphic modes, "Arkanoid II: Revenge of Doh":

http://www11.zippyshare.com/v/OvrV2M6r/file.html

This version has Hercules, CGA, Tandy and EGA / VGA graphics available.

Just uploaded a Transarctica PDF manual. It's a French-English-German version taken from the Atari ST docs, but it covers all 16 bit versions of the game.

It can be found at Neville\Transarctica.

Uploaded the manual for "The Simpsons - Bart vs Space Mutants". It's an ENG-FR-GER-ITA version.

Been fiddling with the game as well trying to access the Tandy mode under DOSBox. Turns out you need to skip the intro file, otherwise it hangs. The game also supports the Roland MT-32, which gets you a fairly improved rendition of the Simpsons' theme.
