Has there ever been a FRENCH version of Zak McKracken?

WHDload install is nowhere to be seen, so this version must be very rare - or non existing at all.
Years ago, some French dude at usenet claimed to have deprotected French Amiga version of Zak, so this *could* be true.

This question is dedicated to all you French guys on EAB!

Yes Zak mac Kracken exist of course in french on amiga, like Dragons Breath from Palace exist in french translated by silmarils, which is also very very rare.

Tell me if i'm wrong i'm the only guy in the french community to own the game in original french.

I think the game is in a french ubisoft compilation. I must take a look....

You are wrong Denis
See #2365. It is also retail, not compilation

Thanks IFW!
That proves its existence. HOL updated.
I would have made a lesser production of this, if I had either seen the CAPS entry before or a support confirmation in the WHDload readme. But there wasn't.
The current WHDload install doesn't seem to support the French version.

Thanks KG & WindowsKiller.
Anyhow, I think it was a reasonable thing to NOT enter this into HOL just because it's in TOSEC. Mind you, it might as well have been an unofficial translation (given that you approach to the matter not knowing jack ).
