We do have the CD version, it is in our ISO Cellar that only members can see on our forums. The reason it isn't on the main site is size, ISO images are large and we can only host games up to a certain size. We have recently had that increased and might be able to host some more ISOs on site but for now if you would like to play the cd version of the game you will need to sign up for the site, it is free and is just like signing up for any forum once you are you will be able to see the ISO Cellar and from there find the games ISO.

This one's only 102 MB. Perhaps we could replace the archive with it (if it can be gotten to work without being more hassle for the end users than the current archive is).

There are some differences between the CD and floppy version of the game. I would think we should have the ISO up as an extra perhaps instead of the main game...or the other way around. Either way a link to how to mount ISOs tutorial should be there as well.

Default Ravenloft ISO Extra Would be Great

Alright, I registered for the site - found the ISO cellar as well. It would be very kewl to get the ISO up on the main site, as I find navigating 3rd party sites like 4shared to be a relative pain, and AVG wags its fingers. Plus, freemium sites are a hassle for abandonware, as the size of the files is negligible for Strahd's Possession.

By the by,

A walkthrough for noobs like myself on R00/RAR conversion to ISO (hopefully using open-source) would be useful as well, as I am a bit outmatched by the files found in the Strahd repository.

*.rar and all the *.r00 files are part of the same archive, you will need
http://www.7-zip.org/
And yes, it's freeware.
Put all files in the same (temp) folder and hit the *.rar file.

There is no "conversion". The RAR contains the ISO inside it, R00 (and any further Rxx) files are simply subsequent parts of the archive. You can use WinRar or 7-Zip to decompress it.

Then I must be doing something wrong, as 7-zip informed me on the first go that there was an error - CRC did not compute, or some such. I cannot imagine why a checksum error would have occurred, so I could use some advice.

EDIT: Repeated process after making sure that all files were present. Received this error: CRC failed in 'RLOFT_V1_1.img.ecm' File is broken.

caveat: although I think I did it the first time, I believe I did not include a system information file this time. Should that be included?

EDIT 2: tested the rar-open with all files present in a folder except for cluebook and manual. Used both 7-zip and Peazip; encountered the same error.

EDIT 3: Ok, it works. I obviously was not thinking it through, as a failed CRC on a file should have prompted me to check for a corrupted download. Used 7-zip to complete download.

Did you try it with WinRAR, as recommended by The Fifth Horseman in the post above you? I don't encounter any such problems with WinRAR, the files in the archive are good and can be decompressed without any errors.

4shared. Download might have been corrupted. Should indeed check with Winrar, that atleast tells which volume is broken, so you can download that again.
