Defender of the Crown DOS CDROM

Postby faddie » 2018-10-14 @ 18:28

Hi everyone,
I recently rediscovered a copy of DotC on my parents attic, which I bought around 1993 or 1994. It is the CD DOS version, containing an audio CD (or at least I suppose that's what it is) and the game on floppy disks. Unfortunately I was never able to run the game, as it needs an obscure Hitachi CD drive in order load.

Also Mobygames states that this particular version was never published. So I wonder: does anyone else know this version of the game? And is there a way to load it?

I've also uploaded the game to my google drive account, but I'm not sure if I'm violating the forum rules by posting the link. But I was also discussing this on a german forum, so here's the link to the thread and you might even find something on page two over there:
https://www.forum64.de/index.php?thread ... cdrom-dos/

Anyway, it would be great to know if this a long lost release or just an obscurity :)

Since I'm not yet allowed to write PMs (or reply), I'd like to reply publically. For everyone, here is a pic of the disks for you to enjoy.

Yes, I'd love to try out a patch, just keep in mind that PMs here are currently a one way communication type of thing unless you PM me your mail address.
