I know. The IPF can be used directly under emulation like an ADF, otherwise it can be converted into an ADF given the game isn't heavily protected.

The other leads to grandis.nu, which requires an FTP username and password.
Works here using Firefox. The link is to the EAB server, so no login/pass are needed for downloads. Try the direct link below (also includes a cracker's compilation with the game), or another browser if problems persist.

Anyway, why there's a standalone ADF of this Infocom classic on the EAB server and not one in TOSEC yet is anyone's guess, so the more places hosting an ADF the merrier!

Are you sure Delta Patrol was even released for Amiga? Wikipedia lists it as only for the C64 and ZX Spectrum.
Yep, the HOL entry linked in the last post shows screenshots. Cracked versions are also available.

I've only ever seen one copy of Delta Patrol for sale and that went for about $300-400 on Ebay a couple of years ago (see pics below). Suffice to say I was outbid!

Several years ago the same seller also sold a copy of Monkey Business (yep, a Donkey Kong clone). Even back in 1996 the game was considered "extremely rare", so much so that the seller thought he should advertise it as such!
