Default FancyCat - The Oregon Trail - Original DOS VGA release

I have the singular 3.5" floppy release of the original Oregon Trail for DOS. Virtually every abandonware site on the net only has The Oregon Trail Deluxe, the higher-res later edition with a mouse-driven GUI interface. This is the "classic" version, essentially a 256 VGA port (though it claims to support EGA and CGA as well) of the original Apple II release. I think it'd be a boon for this site to have, as I imagine many DOS retro gamers would prefer to play the one they remember playing in Elementary School... and it is virtually impossible to find on any other DOS retrogaming site.

Off course we want it!!! PM coming right away. We'll keep this picture as well, but please do scan the floppy as well, so it's even better. And scan anything else that you might have. Please upload the zip of the game that is ready to play. If possible create floppy image as well, there are some free utilities for this. And tell us can the game be played without problems in DOSBox. And thaaaank you. You know you gonna make the world a better place

You're welcome! I just finished uploading everything you should need. Sadly the box has been gone for years, and the manual is probably in storage. I'll make scans of that if I come across it again.

And yeah, it works just fine in DOSbox. In fact it works slightly better than on my 486, where it runs slightly too fast.
