>Im Sommer 1992 saß Doug Smith meist alleine in einem Computerlabor der Universität von Washington. Er sollte da sein, falls jemand dort etwas machen wollte, aber füher war sommers nicht viel in solchen Laboren los. Um sich zu beschäftigen, entschied er sich, ein Videospiel zu schreiben, und so entstand Lode Runner.

Summer 1992??? 1982!

Who got the lost 150 "Loderunner 2" Levels, all disk-images fail at level 22.

Press "7" and "9" on the number pad (with numlock on)
Anybody know how to get the lasers to work on a Macbook, running Dosbox? Neither A/S or 7/9 keys work (or any other keys, for that matter.) There a config file you can edit, or something?

You can create custom keyboard mapping for DOSBox. It's described in detail inside the readme.

In the review, I read the below:

"always wondering what level 106 looks like, because you can't get past level 15."

Can't get past level 15? I haven't played this game in over 22, 23, 24 years, but I actually got through all 150 levels starting at level 1. Took many months, but I did.

But since it is more then 20 years (I'm getting old) since I played the game, I don't remember how to get there.

Anyone?
Yes there was a secret level. Read below:

It was in one of the first levels and you had to walk to the far right of the screen. In my memory you had to press up 5 times there and the ladder would appear to bring you to this secret level. I even remember that you could enter the highscore by using this "cheat". If you died all men except the last man, before leaving this level (of course after collecting all the treasures with each man) you would get the highest score.
This is good description. Its close to what I remember, but I couldn't tell you if it is 100% correct or not. But it is close.

DOSBox, young man. It can mount a blank disc image as drive A, and you can write data to it as if it was a real floppy.

Here are floppy images for 740k and 1,44 MB floppies.

In DOSBox, you just use the IMGMOUNT command, for example:
IMGMOUNT A C:\DOSGAMES\HDFLOPPY.IMA -t floppy
(Of course you need to replace C:\DOSGAMES\HDFLOPPY.IMA with actual location and name of the disk image on your computer)
Then you can use them as if they were real discs. :thumbs:
