Fatal Encounter/Super Fighter DOS non-playable demo - does it exist?

Postby MrFlibble » 2017-11-26 @ 14:01

I vaguely remember downloading a non-playable DOS demo of Fatal Encounter from somewhere, possibly cd.textfiles.com or demu.org, which if memory serves was a small slide-show with either static screenshots and/or maybe some animation showing off the characters, plus some screens with narration (not sure about it though). However, when I tried to track it down now (apparently I deleted that file I had), I couldn't find any mention of such a demo at all.

Can anyone confirm that this demo exists? I admit that I might misremember and the programme in question was actually a demo of a different Street Fighter-esque DOS fighting game with hand-drawn characters, however I cannot imagine what game it could be either.

Out of the places that I checked as a possible source of that demo, I might have downloaded it from Theodor Lauppert's website (Wayback Machine snapshot) but it's no longer online and I cannot verify if the file there was not the full version from the Super Fighter Team website as the WM did not archive this file.

In case someone else is interested in this, I contacted the Super Fighter Team and Brandon Cobb told me that no non-playable demos of C&E existed, so I must have confused this with some other game, possibly Fatal Fury (?).

I thought about it, but this demo is very different from what I remember, which IIRC had some character sprites on black background, maybe even a char selection table and/or upscale portraits, along with screenshots of different backgrounds. But then again, maybe my memory is playing tricks on me and that was a demo loop from the demo of Body Blows and I'm mixing those up.
