Nice work getting that working. Especially for a gem like Jagged Alliance!

Thanks!

Actually I have never played the game. Do you know if the demo mission (and/or the scenario in the demo of Deadly Games) is included in the full game? I'm collecting info on demo versions with unique levels.

No, I don't, I've not played the demo. Or even the game all that much, just loved what I did play. OTOH, maybe this is a good excuse to remedy those failings... Happy

If I get a chance, I'll check it out. Gog has the full game, in case it matters.

I just went through the first post and marked with an asterisk all FTP sites that are now down. Luckily some were archived by the Internet Archive.

Magic Carpet 2
o Demo (10 July 1995): mc2nosnd.zip [file name should be mc2demo.zip]
o Demo (7 August 1995): mc2nosnd.zip, mc2sound.zip

These are two different demo versions with different levels, the first one has some other differences from the final version as well.

These are two different demo versions with different levels, the first one has some other differences from the final version as well.

Apparently this pre-release version was originally a CD exclusive published on the cover disk of the September issue of the Computer Gaming World Magazine (as attested by this and this newsgroup discussion). As the demo does not require the CD to play, a user replaced the 13 MiB intro sequence with an empty file and uploaded it at wuarchive.wustl.edu. Interestingly, it appears that Bullfrog later uploaded the same demo without intro to their FTP site (it is inked to from the official Magic Carpet 2 page).

Later the full version of the demo (w/ the intro) was also published on the coverdisk of the October 1995 issue of PC Gamer.
