A couple IBM PC rarities
« on: June 15, 2012, 08:19:05 PM »
I don't know where to put these, as I'm not up on my abandonware games.  However: I have a pair of IBM PC rarities that have never been released before (as far as I know).  These items are pristine, though not NIB they do not have copy protection and do not save to disk so they are just as they were years ago.

First up: Race for the West.  One disk.

Scans of the (one) disk: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/56421988/disk-front-and-back.jpg

Data files: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/56421988/Race_for_the_West.zip
Inside this folder are two items, "RAC" is what is actually stored to your PC after an installation.  And then there's a disk rip performed with ddrescue in DiskImages.

Next: Zug's Dinosaur World, aka Zug's Dinosaur Discovery Kit.  Four disks.  UNFORTUNATELY, I am missing a disk.  FORTUNATELY, I have an install - thus we have a playable game, just short one disk of installation media : )

Data files:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/56421988/Zugs_Dinosaur_World.zip
Like Race for the West, there are two folders here: one titled "ZUG" which is an install taken from a PC.  The other is DiskImages/ which contains ddrescue dumps of the three disks.

---

I do have a box for Zug, and manuals for both games.  My scanner is not hooked up though.  Given that I just suffered a hard drive failure the other day, I need to get what I have released to the wild before something catastrophic destroys this history.

Hey!

Thanks for your contribution, your link for the 2nd image (png) is broken btw.
I've saved these files but i'm not sure if and when they will get added as i'm not working on IBM.
