Looking for specific versions of AGI files
« on: October 09, 2017, 10:34:40 PM »
Seems awful quiet here in the AGI forum. I guess everyone had a busy summer.

I've made a ton of progress on WinAGI v1.2.2. I'm working on the help file now. To make sure it's as accurate as possible, I've been working with a decompiler on the AGI files. I've been working with primarily with version 2.917, and have it almost fully decompiled, which has led to a ton of new information and corrections regarding the AGI specs.

I've been able to check other versions I have to look for differences among versions, but unfortunately I'm missing a few versions that I would like to have in order to validate my assumptions about what's different.

Years ago, I got a zip file with most DOS versions from someone (I think from MegaTokyo days). But I found out that three of the versions included are not what they seem. The files for v2.425,2.439 and 2.903 all include a version stamp of "2.CBC" in the AGIDATA.OVL file, and have a bit of extra code at the end of the executable that's associated with a Sierra loader for Windows 98 - other than that, they're byte for byte equal to v2.936. It looks like they're from a Windows 98 compatible version of Space Quest that included both SQ1 and SQ2.

So if anyone has the 'real' versions 2.425, 2.439 and 2.903, I'd love to have them for comparison against the other versions I have. Oh, and I don't have any version 1 files; I wouldn't mind getting my hands on those too, but they're less of a need for me.

thx!

There are some V1 games stored here in the Internet Archive:

Those V2 versions all ring a bell but I'd have to spend some time checking what I have.

Over summer is usually a busy time for me each year. This year I was travelling with my parents to various places, and then almost immediately was involved in the js13kgames contest, which is something that I like doing each year.

Over the past few weeks I've been repairing a Commodore VIC 20. All working now.
