This thread is to remember our favorite SSI moments.
Currently I am trying to digitally recollecting my good old memories with SSI games on both PC and C64!
I used this list as the guide to complete my collections stated in my previous post.
I focused on Commodore C64 at first.
Some games were not published on Commodore 64 such as Treasures of The Savage Frontier, Buck Rogers II and such,
so I started collecting them on DOS verision.
Some games I have both them in both systems such as the Pool of Radiance and Curse of the Azure Bonds etc.
I even did a very amateurish Youtube comparison between DOS and C64 versions of Buck Rogers I.
Here I have the complete Pool of Radiance set for the Commodore 64.
The cracked version requires the special Boot Disk to start and bypassing the code wheel.
but in order to have complete Retro feel,
I am booting up with original boot disk,
and using an on-line code wheel to break the copy protection.
The complete set includes all original pre-generated characters, digital manual, reference card, adventures journal book, and a hint book.
I have also collected a Character Editor disk but it does not really work, and I still need to figure it out.
An enthusiastic player online have created a dream team of NPC party and I have collected that too, which could be downloaded from below.
I have never completed the game because the fighting sequences just gets too long and boring and repetitive, which is the norm for all SSI dungeon and dragons series.
Also one must constantly referring to the Adventure Journal for paragraphs, and taking notes to keep the time line and events in correct sequences.
The PC version works much faster and no need to swap disks, and I would try to complete that instead.
Anyway Pool of the Radiance was the 1st RPG I ever played on the Commodore 64 during my high school years and lowered my grades!
What a memory. What a retro feel!
