Indeed, Rincewind is the greatest, hahaha, I rather do find myself taking his outlook on life quite often, though it usually makes the world quite blurry. Ah, well, no matter as long as I live, eh?

i have managed to get sound to work, but the really odd thing is that the TEXT is all in spanish or something! if i don't configure the game to have sound, then the text reverts back to english. am i the only one coming across this problem? how do i fix it?

if anyone is getting distorted sound, crashing or a missing "english.smp" file.

you MUST download and run the patch - there was a known issue with some versions of the game, I seem to remember having to send my CD back to the manufacturer (it was sent back with the patch you will find on the game page.

Slightly OT, if some of the puzzles don't make sense, blame it on the Aussie design team, Even Pratchett himself was quoted as saying he found their sense of humour hard to understand!

The HOTU version of Discworld 2 is a waste.

They took out all the sound, music and voice files to shorten the download its not really worth it without all the sounds. Besides I hear Terry Pratchett has agreed to make both games Abandonware and the guys over at ScummVM are negotiating for the source codes for both games.

Any chance that DW 2 will be on Abandonia with everything included?

Well...we approved it on requests so the first step has been done, probably on site you'll see a rip version...but maybe on ISO cellar
You have to wait, we need a review, some screenshoots and we need a good soul that wants to upload it

*sigh*

So I DL this from HOTU right, cuz I've played the Playstation version (though not all the way through) and I know how awesome the sounds are so I don't wanna skimp out. So I install it, sitting pretty in DISCWLD on C drive.

I try running "DISC.BAT".

It gives me a black screen for a few, then minimizes itself.

Thoughts?

I guess you should talk to people at HOTU for that. We can not be responsible for anything they put up (besides, we have an archive of our own).
