Hi!!

I have been looking for a particular CD-ROM for over 20 years now, and I've just finally come to a forum to ask for help in tracking down the name.

I cant remember the color or the design of the cd but the main menu was like this:



Every square was the screenshot of a game, you select one, press enter and play.

Some of the games included in this cd:
- Cyberdogs
- Beers
- Street Fighter 2 (XMS Version, the SF2LIU)
- Billy the Kid

Other details
- Some games loaded a previous TSR (Terminate and stay resident program) to play music in some games.

I know this description is very vague but, if you know some disk like this please tell me the name.
I've browsing the cdbbsarchive of archive.org for years and i can't find something like this.

Thanks in advance.

This kind of menu system was often in itself a shareware, unlicensed by the publishers, sometimes multi-paged, depending on how many games were included.

One bundle using such a menu is this (not including your titles unfortunately):
http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/50-great-games-plus-knights-of-the-sky


Many such shovelware discs are now on various archives, like this one:
http://cd.textfiles.com/directory.html

(with 20 years of searching, you probably have looked through some of these)

I've search in cd.textfiles but with no luck :-(

The menu is like the one of the mobygames link but has the screenshots of every game, not the name.
