Is it possible to download the original, first ever, Exile? I prefered the graphics, because the bright blue cave floor annoyed my eyes! Also... I seem to remember my dad playing, and he got attacked by mad cows... or did he just mess with the graphics? :P

I can't find any place to download an older version then 2.0 but I have version 1.1 wich has the older graphics. And if you perfer them i sugest doing what i do. Instead of actully playing the older version. Play the new one but replace the new image files with the old ones. I like doing it this way because the new version has a few little improvments like how the actual game area of the window is in the center and not in the top left corner. Helps when your like me and want to play full screen. Also seems to help when i kick down my resolution to 600x800. I'm not at my computer right now. But When i am later today i'll see about sending you those old school grafix.

Ah, the original Exile. Fond memories. I did find the blue floor kind of strange after i updated, but I didn't have a problem with it.

The sound files were different as well, which I don't think you can replace.

If my Mac was working I could of sent you the version before the red walls. It isn't registered or anything, so no harm done hopefully.

Have you asked Jeff? I'm sure he has a copy somewhere and can put it somewhere for you to d/l.

Thanks for your trying to help! I did have some of the graphics from the original... I got it on a shareware disk... 1120 Games... or something. Unfortunately I holepunched the CD to see what would happen. 'doh.

Well, I really really really like the older one, so I think I will just ask Jeff ;) Wewt!

EDIT: Just noticed I'm member 5666. Hehe... the Omen pwnz joo. :D

If Jeff puts up old-school E1 graphics, let me know! I loved E1 (even though I only had the demo...), but I agree with, um, whomever said that blue cave floors are irritating. 'Cause I think they're irritating, too.

(plus one more thing. On the 2.0 version theres an aditional bitmap named "Comanim.BMP" and what it is, is the pc's and monsters for the little intro "movie" thingy. It has the new version grafix so when you use the 2.0 version with the old grafix the little movie shows the new grafix for just the caracters but the tarain will be in old school grafix. But in the game itself however it will all be with the old grafix. If any one wants to go through the troble and change "Comanim.BMP" to show the old caracters be my guest, i might do it some day. ... or maybe i'm just gunna be lazy)

I'm doing my best to get these hosted at a real site that allows direct linking (partly because they stretch the heck out of Today's Daily Topics), but it may take a little bit of time. I'll get back to everyone on this.

Here we go:

Appon Closer inspection of the Grafix change from the old to the new i noticed somthing. Not only did they just change what everything looked like. They actully added a few things. One terran square and two characters. The Terran is just the adition of an alter except on tile instead of dirt. The two extra characters are only what i can assume are the spider queen and Sss-Thss. I havent actully tested it out but if you play with the old grafix they should come up as being compleatly white along with the alter. So i Did what could.

IMAGE(http://members.lycos.co.uk/mysticjs1/newstuff.bmp)

I took what was already there from the old stuff and made up for the gap. Um i don't know if the game actully uses the characters or not. And if you'd rather them look like the other characters
just do some copy past and that should do the trick. To see where they belong just download this bit map

http://members.lycos.co.uk/mysticjs1/Monst2.bmp

I already put the extra terrane square in the bitmap i posted the url to erlier

As for The intro movie typ thing i worked some ms paint magic and made it in the old school grafix style just put this in your Exile directory and it should work just fine.

I have seen the old Exile graphics and I must say, they are better than the newer ones. More classical, if you know what I mean.

As a slightly more permanent thing, I've put the old graphics on my web site proper.

I've been playing old game nonstop since I obtained it! Seriously, the mad cows are pwnage. :D I love the old graphics as I am a classics junkie! The new ones are just too... un-cartoony coolness. Hmmm... maybe someone should play around with ruined world and or Blades graphics! That would be so cool! :)
