Hope it is OK to bump this old thread, but with some assistance from vetz we have now archived the Reelmagic version of Flash Traffic. It comes on 3 CD's which I think might be a contender for the biggest commercially released DOS game?

Still hoping that one day we uncover those Sierra games 😀

If you are squeamish, don't prod the beach rubble.

I have basically all of those games on the first part of the list...unfortunately I still have not dug Conspiracy out of storage, but I recently picked up the Prince game and I should have that on hand. I am willing to archive it if someone tells me the preferred method to do so.

I also have a question - is anyone trying to emulate the Reelmagic calls so that these games can be run without a physical board?

Well, I still hope that you will be able to share it one day...

Great, thanks in advance!
One person from Mobygames has also promised me to archive this game, but - who knows when.
The preferred method - is to make the images of the disks (if they do not have CD Audio tracks and complex copy protection, then ISO and Daemon Tools, ISO Buster, Alcohol etc. would be enough) and to upload them to Archive.org 😀

As far as I know - no... There were some rumors from the ScummVM people about plans to add the support of 'Return to Zork MPEG' to their interpreter, but I doubt that would happen any time soon.

I've never uploaded anything there but I'll ask my bud Dosnostalgic if he can do it for me...he's helped me in the past with that.

That really sucks - someone needs to figure this out.

Hmm. Now I see some tiny resemblance in the name 😀

Well, any other file sharing service would be fine, too, but Dosnostalgic and Archive.org sound better, thanks!
