Game Demo's

I've got some quite unusual GAME demo's. The disks the software companies sent to the shops to be running on display.

Most are Psygnosis, most are copyprotected disks (?!) but some of the demos are very early and have different music and gfx to the final game.

I sent two to Psygore of WHDLoad (Beast 1 & Beast 2) and he's made them into WHDLoad installs.

But I've got lots more, Ork, Awesome, Gods, Barbarian etc. etc.

Anyone interested?

Alex

The CAPS team is surely interested in all these disks! Contact them or post a message in their forum.

They've been CAPS'd and uploaded to their FTP site today.

Dunno, the disk doesnt boot on my A4k/040@25. Ask CAPS to rush this one through then you can try it.

I am looking out for an original of the Beast 3 Psygnosis demo, as it turns out my original is in fact a copy

Psygore, I will get round to sending you the disk images soon.

I am positive he hasn't received your mail, so I've sent him a link to this thread right now.

Hi FromWithin,

This is strange, I remember repling to your private message... Perhaps I didn't send it properly... Sorry about that... I wondered why I didn't get a reply.

Anyway, the basics of the message was that we would indeed be very interested in these disks and that I can either come and get them (thankfully no need by car this time == phew! I hate driving (read: getting lost) in London) or you can send them, whichever is easier for you...

Thanks!
