Heya guys,

Anyone know where I could obtain Heretic II from?

I've searched everywhere and cannot see this for purchase; hence the reason for this thread.

I stand corrected (for now). I see that Gorky 17 / FreeSpace / Shogo are there for direct download. But not Heretic II.

Yeh, on the floor of my bedroom in a pile of CD games IIRC! If you need me to make an ISO and upload somewhere, then I should be able to get to it on the weekend (work permitting).

The reason why it wouldn't be available for digital download purchase from the Hyperion website is that the game was published by Titan. IIRC, it was Hyperion's first Amiga game as a developer and, at that point, they either weren't geared up to be a publisher or in a position where they felt able to take the financial risk as an Amiga games publisher.

That would be absolutely amazing!!!

Anywhere on the EAB File Server would be sufficient

I think I have ISOs of this already, where should I upload it to on the file server? Assume I can do as guest? Can't remember if it needs a key though.

Oh that's cool fitzsteve; and would save ProfBong the trouble

Unfortunately you cannot upload as a guest; you'll need to register an account on the EAB File Server; if you haven't done so already.

Here is the required information: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=780

You can only upload to your own directory under ~Uploads (once you've created this), but I can move to somewhere more appropriate afterwards; being an FTP Admin

Thank you kindly in advance

I have just registered but don't seem to have a folder in uploads? Note I don't have an FTP client installed.

I've found an ISO of Disk2 on my PC, just searching for Disk1 lol, worst case I have the CD upstairs...

You will need to use an FTP client

FileZilla is free and what I use.

Please note what Turran said on the matter:

What??? That quickly

Ok, just taken a look. They are really small; guess there's no audio track then.

Data from both disks only extracts to 353MB... it could fit on one CD.

Disk A: 252MB
Disk B: 102MB

If there are associated audio tracks on either CD, then definitely not captured.

What did you use to make the images?

I'd suggest ImgBurn; but create ".BIN & .CUE" images
