Re: The Exodus Project (Update Ultima 2-5 with MIDI)

These conversions are great. The updated EGA/VGA graphics are gorgeous, with flashy colors, and the ported sound makes them more fun.

I used the accompanying unecm.exe program with one of the CD image files, but it does not seem to make it happen. I also tried to erase the .ecm extension …
