I played that version. It's ok, I never played the non-rip version, so I don't really know what I am missing.
You have cutscenes, they are kind of like a slide show (don't know if the original has videos). No speech of course, but subtitles.
Only one problem, when you are in the house (after the fair/circus) the subtitles dissapear in less than a second making them impossible to read.

Well... the game has videos (slide shows? I don't think so) and of course full speech. I still recommend the original version as usual. It's not the same thing to legally own a gameofcourse imo.  ;)

Of course  ;)  Anyway, the original version seems to be a good idea... videos are better than a slide show, and full speech - cool. I'll try to buy it, should be rather cheap these days.

Are you talking about the original 3CD version or the Underdog CD rip? Well the version I had was from Home of the Underdogs but before they took it away. Instead of videos you had no sound and just pictures as cut-scenes.
Yeah I do agree with you about buying the original, but then only if you can really get your hands on the original for a fair price. Personally I think if ebay is the only place you can get a game you might as well copy it because the original manufacturer will not earn any money of it either way!

Also something else. On Apogee's website you can download their old games for 10.- $ each. I am sorry but 10.$ for an old DOS game that runs on a 286 machine is too much. Unles 80% of the price is for support because nobody knows anymore how to make it run  ;)

Have you played the adventure game called "Sanitarium"?

Did it start in a candyfloss machine?...

Sanitarium is great! Don't know of download URL but I have a copy of
the full game (and a walk-through (apologies) which is a great help for sticky areas....).

If anyone wants it let me know & I'll upload it somewhere and post url.

Have'nt tried Wintermute yet... sounds really good....

Cheers Tazma
