Police Quest 2 - English DOS Non-Interactive Demo
« on: September 20, 2016, 03:38:25 PM »
Thanks to the generous help of Michael Cronsten (who's hosting a catalog of old floppies), I managed to get hold of an intact version of Police Quest 2 demo:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5j-_ZMS8_UoWWVJUldRTzJJRmM

This version is already recognized by ScummVM (same md5's as the corrupt version) and working flawlessly.

For the unaware - the only version available so far on the internet had a corrupt RESOURCE.001.
6 years ago I managed to construct a "fixed" demo using views extracted from the full game. However, one view (VIEW.010, shown in the final scene) was unique to the demo, which made my fix incomplete. You can read about it in this old ScummVM bug ticket.

A user on SHP was able to repair the RESOURCE.001 in the commonly available copy without using replacement resources from the full release. That has been available on SHP for some time.

I find that hard to believe.
Link?
The demo hosted in SHP contains the same replacement VIEW.010.

As a reference, found 2 mentions of this demo in your forums:
