Would you post a bit more about your dosbox settings? I didn't have problems with it, but I don't have Windows 8 (and I don't intend getting it any time soon. )

I hope your issue gets resolved, because it's a really awesome game

Discworld 2 should be up soon

Default A lovely game, pity about the bugs.

After struggling with this one for ages I finally caved and looked at a walk through it turns out that an event had never triggered that was supposed to.

Teeny tiny spoiler but just in case :)


It seems that you have to play the game in a certain order or it won't let you proceed. It's a bit of a pity because it's put me off as I feel you'd need to play with the walk through on your lap. I hate looking at walk throughs* so I probably won't ever get round to doing this which is a pity because I really did enjoy the humor and the graphical style. I will certainly give the sequel a go though, hopefully they've fixed those issues.

* I managed to beat the entirety of Myst without a peek at one.

Default CD Version Upload

Hi everybody,

Unfortunately, it looks like this classic Point And Click game will never see a re-release on GOG, etc. due to it being in copyright hell. So it looks like Abandonware sites are probably the only way to reasonably get a hold of it.

I notice the version hosted here on Abandonia is the floppy disc one, which doesn't have voice acting. So does anybody have an ISO of the CD Rom version (patched to Version 1.04) that they could post? Also, will this ISO work with ScummVM (I want to download James Woodcock's remastered soundtrack)?

(The above download link seems to only work with 32 bit versions of Windows)

Thanks a million!

Check Old-games.ru. They even have several versions, including those you need.

We have it in the Iso cellar, why send people to another site?

The ISO Cellar links appear to be dead now (they are, after all, twelve years old at this point). I was able to get the ISO from here:

https://www.freegameempire.com/games/Discworld-CD

It's clearly the unpatched version, due to the February 1995 timestamp. So I'll probably run the install through DosBox, patch it, and then run the patched version through ScummVM.

Nevermind. I didn't realize I needed a 4Shared account to be able to download from the site. LOL.

I have the files from there now.

Actually, when I try to open the extracted ISO images from the two operational files on the ISO Cellar, I get an error saying "File Corrupted." I unpacked all the WINRAR archives in, I'm pretty sure, the correct order (*.rar, *.r0, *.r1, *.r2) and then ran the batch file to decode them. So I'm wondering if these files aren't compatible with Windows 10 64-bit perhaps?
