Worms Floppy image.

Postby sketchus » 2017-8-30 @ 22:13

Hi all,

I hope this is OK to post here.

I'm trying to reinstall my copy of Worms 1 from floppy disk. Unfortunately the disks seems to be corrupt and I cannot for the life of my find an image for the floppies online.

Is there any chance anyone has a backup of their discs?

I have proof of ownership if needed.

Thanks.

Is the whole disk bad or just some files are unreadable? Name/date/size of the file would be helpful.

There's only two files on the disk, one is the install.exe and the other is just labelled "disk.1". I can check the file size tomorrow.

@sketchus

You have a PM.

GOG still sells worms, so that is probably why you can't find a download anywhere.

Team17 still exists, so you may have some luck contacting them to see if you can get an image of the original disk. Or maybe they will even give you a replacement copy via GOG or something.

Just remembering that GOG versions might not work correctly and will require you to unpack the installer.
