I have an enhanced hybrid (Windows/Macintosh) copy of 'Super Solvers: Outnumbered!' on CD-ROM. The Macintosh part works, though I don't have any old Windows computers to confirm the Windows portion works. The manual says Windows 3.1 or 95, and I don't have anything nearly that old, or know how to run/emulate it in a modern Windows environment. When I put the CD into my Windows 7 machine, it makes Windows Explorer restart, and it doesn't want to run the exe files needed to install it, even with compatibility mode and running as admin.

While I would need someone to check that the game would indeed work on an older computer, I have made an ISO with ImgBurn, and I can provide pictures/scans of the CD, case, and manual if they are wanted. I have not scanned them yet, but the case, manual, and CD are sitting right here and I can scan them fairly easily. Only thing I don't have is the box, assuming it came with one.

Any scans you have are always wanted. As for CD image, if it is not too big, you can upload it to FTP with scans. If it is too big (over 300 MBs) then upload to third party like 4shared or similar and provide us with links.

PM with FTP details coming right up.

Thank you for contributions

The ISO file is quite a bit smaller than that, so I've uploaded that. I'll scan the CD, case, and manual tomorrow, as I'm about to head off to bed.

Though, question as far as that goes. I know they should be compressed as .zip format, but is there a preferred image format? And should all of those images go into the same archive, or should, say, the CD/case and manual be in separate archives?

I think .jpg will do just fine. And good question about zipping - all scans of the box, case, CD etc can be placed in one archive. The manual or any other document that is inside the box are to be uploaded separately. You can create separate archives for those (or just one .zip for manual in your case) and if possible create .pdf for those scans. Those "documents" like manual, map, reference card etc are treated as Extras, while scans of the packages are treated as scans.

Have the case and CD scans and manual uploaded now, so it looks like I've got everything I can give as far as this game goes. :3

Default Boxcars Casino

So, I found an old Macintosh game called Boxcars Casino...but that's already over on the Macintosh Garden. The manual then went on to mention a Windows version, which made me curious.

After some digging, with Google turning up almost nothing but some old FTP links I couldn't access anymore, I finally found an archive of the CICA FTP server disks, I was able to get the Windows version of this game, by one Jeff T. Rodeo.

Just wondered if it would be of interest here, being an old shareware title and all. Ran it myself, as long as you tell it to run in 256 colors, it'll work in Windows 7, even, but I believe it's meant for much older versions of Windows.

Also, my Outnumbered CD version...I uploaded that, nothing's been done with it yet. Did I forget to mention that I uploaded it? If I did, I'm sorry.

Sorry about Outnumbered, I will look into that.

As for Boxcars, it is probably OK, but needs to be checked and confirmed. Please open a new topic in Requests, name the topic after the game and add some info about the company, year of publishing, perhaps some link to that info.

I merged your new topic with the old one since here in Offers we prefer one topic per member. In requests it's one topic per game for easier checking of statuses.

And thank you for your contributions

Well, I have Boxcars Casino (which is why I went into offers) in the original zip file it came in. Which includes the manual and whatnot. Obviously, there's no box scan, being a shareware game.

As for information, it's a little sparse (the best source is probably the manual itself), but here's a couple of links:

http://macintoshgarden.org/games/boxcars-casino (link to the Macintosh version)

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!ms...I/uNVFqP_CvkUJ (Old post about the game from 1995. None of the links or the e-mail works anymore, unfortunately)

Also, should I take the specific game title out of my offers thread, then? Since it's a couple of games now?

And should I upload the zip I have of Boxcars Casino? I have the FTP login still, I can make a new directory in my directory for Boxcars and stick the zip file in. It's not very big at all. :3

I created topic in Requests (I was busy today earlier) so you can upload the game once it is confirmed. I'll take care of Offers topic name, although it is not important really.
