Or email me. My email address is on my profile. Or just butcher the URL (remove the .'s) so it will work. I'm giving you full permission as an admin to circumvent our ever-so-strong (not) spam filter. :laugh:

I have the game

Post by Emerald Hunter » Mon Feb 09, 2015 6:10 pm

I have the game. Still no reply from the webmaster.

I am willing to pass it on to this site as 2 packages.

1) Original.
2) Original (objects.dat slightly modified to suit 3 designed games) but with 166 designed games using the Build package that came with it. Some are very hard to solve. DIRTY1.PIC having a dirty trick to solve it.

I am not the original author.

All I need to get is instructions from webmaster on how to deliver it.

It is the original DOS game with the yellow tractor.

So if ONLY ONE member can PM the webmaster to look at this thread and read his email ...

It IS the game the original requester made and those who have played the game. An image has to be online in order to use the img tag - there seems not to be a way of embedding an image otherwise.

The available online images are not of this old DOS version of the game.

Too much red tape creating accounts to upload images.

Dropbox.com makes it pretty easy. Plus you don't have to embed the image. Just post the link to it from your Dropbox. ;)

You can upload images to imgur.com without registering there. These images are embeddable (the site will even provide you a BBCode link).

If you want to email to me (webmaster@dosgames.com) I'll be glad to take a look. Better yet, upload it somewhere (ex, http://www.tinyupload.com/) rather than emailing. Thanks!

Interesting. I just found this game on another website. It was added to that website last month, 4-12-2015.

Hey all, I finally got my hands on a working copy, and after 5 months of nagging got it up on Abandonia (can't post link, but you can search their site).
Head over there if you're still looking for a copy.

I posted the link to it a couple of weeks ago. Just look at the post above your last post. ;)

Hey guys,

I've downloaded this (and am relatively new to DOSBox), I've managed to get the game to run, but when it starts a game the screen is blank (though I've got sound and there's obviously something going on behind the scenes.)

I've had a play around with the config file to make it work with Win7, but still no luck.
