Anyone have a complete boxed Escape from Colditz game?

I have seen one back in 2005! Seems really rare!

Based on the result of various search engines (and my memory, the game was released 27 years ago ), the box presented here is complete (miss just the book on the picture).
Can you find any picture of the "posters" you are referring to ?

Sad but the windows version is not working for me (got a xAudio2_8.dll error). But it's not important as I would better play it again with Amilator .

Seems like you minimally need Windows 8. Always nice when the use of a bleeping audio library requires you to upgrade an entire OS

And this is, among others with MS-Win, one of the things that makes my hairs stand up ...

Working fine with windows 10 There is also Linux and MAC versions as well.
Really good reverse engineered port, with enhancements over the original. Of course u can use legacy mode for true original mode.

Playing it on a real Amiga hardware is of course unbeatable!

Sad thing about the amiga version is its quite buggy and many things was left out because of development time limitations.

This looks to be just a poor software design thing, not something to be blamed on the OS. There are plenty of pieces of software that manage to produce audio without being locked to a minimal OS version.

Loved the game, but was buggy as mentioned. Always crashed out when you tried to use one of the tunnels and few other things.

Would LOVE to see a first person version of it (POW was OK on the PS2)

Brilliant game there's a patch thanks to Aperture and Galahad/FLT so it doesn't lockup on the tunnel.
