Thanks for the links.

I have started to download them now. Tell you later how it went. The first link has 99MB so it will take some time. My download speed is about 25Kb per second.

Thanks once again.

Biing !

I have downloaded the first file. What format is it ? Is it winzip ? I seem to have something wrong with my association as it looks like a media file.

It doesn't seem to work on XP w/o DOSBox according to the thread below.

The german CD version has some problems, but there is a patch. The english version seems to be ok, as Dizzy said.

Biing ! Extraction

Hello Dizzy,

I have just extracted the first two files.

I downloaded and installed 7-Zip. When I extracted the first file it appeared to be in Winrar. Winrar is telling me that :

The archive is either in unknown format or damaged.

The second file appears to have the same problem.


What am I doing wrong ?

Arrow multipart archive

Hello, you'll need all parts (.001 through .004) in the same directory, then you should be able to open the first (with 7-zip) without error. 7-zip will automatically look at the other ones when it gets to the end of the first while extracting.

download limits

has limits how much you can download within a certain amount of time. You might want to watch out for that. I didn't try getting the files so I don't know if the links are okay, but usually problems with are the download limit.

Edit: Or, if you're trying to download more than one file at once of course.

has a time lock when you don't have a premium account. You can download 1 file/per hour. No problem when you have a dynamic ip, just disconnect and reconnect to download the next part.

Yes, I am aware of this limitation. In fact after the first and second downloads I was put on hold for 65min and 80 min respectively.

After that however I was still redirected to the screen. Now I shall wait another 50 minutes. Hope it will allow me to download then.

Has anyone downloaded the full set, because that would set my mind at rest that the upload was successful.

Thanks once again

Yes, a friend of mine has downloaded the game.

Edit: I've checked the part 3 & 4. They are still there, no worries.

well you need to use DosBox

I remember it as easy to play back in the Win95 days, but dont remember if I ran it from pure dos or in "Win95 dos"..
