UPDATE: Version 6 of the demopack is uploaded to google drive! There are now just 3 different packs currently: the main pack, one smaller pack meant for 286 machines and older (now called MSDOS 16-bit pack, thanks for the suggestion digger!), another pack with just the games that needs a 386 or better (calling this MSDOS 32-bit pack for now).
The 16-bit pack includes a few non interactive demos from Sierra:
kq4demo - Kings Quest 4
lsl3demo - Leisure Suit Larry 3
pq2demo - Police Quest 2
pq3demo - Police Quest 3
The 16-bit pack also includes a folder and an executable called "choice", this is a freedos related program added to test with pre-286 machines.
This unofficial demo pack is intended for the OPL2LPT and OPL3LPT cards made by Dreamblaster/Serdaco (https://www.serdashop.com/).
Here is a Google Drive link to download the zip archive: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MwMkJ … LBv?usp=sharing
(Please report to me if the link does not work!)
Start adpatch.bat and follow instructions (choose decompress before patching for best results!).
Should note that if you place this archive anywhere else other than "C:\" you will have to edit the .bat file for it to work and that is
somewhat less convenient.
Also for the 16-bit and 32-bit versions of the pack its still runme.bat instead of adpatch.bat btw.
Additionally there is now as of version 3 of this pack a new separate folder called "adlipt" for games that only work with the Adlipt driver (thanks to ruthan for the suggestion).
Adlipt.bat launches a menu where you can choose to load the driver with different options or unload it.
- The "opl3" option is for OPL3LPT owners only!
- Nopatch option is useful for those games which are timing sensitive,
usually the games that use Adlib as a Digital sound device work better with this option.
- The Blaster option enables Sound Blaster FM compatability.
- The last option is for combined OPL3 and SBFM. This is for OPL3LPT owners, it enables stereo FM sound in some games (Sam & Max and Cyberspehere for example).
All of the games are legal shareware demos or confirmed freeware games downloaded mostly from the great website called RGB Classic Games.
You can visit that website here: https://www.classicdosgames.com/
Some additional shareware and freeware games downloaded from DOS Games Archive.

The patcher program and other OPL2LPT uttility software is made by Peter De Wachter.

- Some games will work both in Adlib and Soundblaster FM. Hexen demo seemed to have music on the main menu
in Soundblaster, but not with Adlib for some reason when I tested it.
- D generation demo needs to be run with "dgenvga.exe -a" to enable adlib sound.
Otherwise it will default to PC Speaker sound no matter what.
Enjoy Version 6 of the pack!
