I have it somewhere in theory but not in any tangible or useful way.

—Alorael, who knows that the graphic are floating around. Kel had them up, but his page is down now.

These are the graphics, but I think you need to muck with them to get them to work in Exile 1 v2.0.

Buttons
Dlog
Edbtns
Edreg
Item
Mixed
Monst1
Monst2

Exile just doesn't feel right without the classic graphics. Do you have the originals for Exile 2?

1) That's basically all there is different. Why aren't replacement graphics enough?
2) How would you give him Demonslayer and 5000 coins?

The addition of AP in later versions of E1 makes a huge difference, actually.

—Alorael, who is now no longer entirely sure that the original Exile had only one action per turn. That's how he remembers it, though, complete with nauseating jumps around the screen when enemies moved.

O, IDK that E1 1.0 didn't have AP.

It did. I'm not entirely sure how hasting worked, since I didn't play it long enough to find out.

I might be wrong on this, but can't you just download it from the spiderweb site?

Slowing definitely made you lose every other turn. If I remember correctly, hasting gave an extra turn after the regular turn order, so the order went like this:

All party members
All monsters
Hasted party members
Hasted monsters

[Edit: ""Quotes"""]

—Alorael, who is quite sure that the only Exile available from Spiderweb is v2.0. On the other hand, he also found a true gem of a review snippet. "Exile 1.1's hefty file size may seem excessive, but Jeff Vogel's adventure game offers commercial-quality graphics, cool puzzles to solve, and a slew of characters to interact with." So spake MacWorld in the year 1995.

There are probably copies of the older versions around, but convincing Jeff to post links probably won't happen.

Still it would be nice for an archive for those people who want to know how things used to be.

Considering Shirley Vogel hadn't been mentioned in this topic before MM's post, I don't think he was asking who Shirley Vogel was. It's possible he was suggesting that she might have a copy of the original Exile I.

I know how to do this on a pc, since everything is stored in .bmp format, but it seems like the mac stuff is all in .dat files. Does anyone have these files to replace E1 and E2 graphics?

I was just poking at the CD-ROM that came with the book Tricks of the Mac Game Programming Gurus. The book is immensely, woefully out of date these days, but the CD is a veritable time portal back to early Macintosh gaming. Not only does it have the lovely, primitive Exile 1.1.3, but it also has Realmz 2.0, Mantra, and a whole bunch of other stuff I remember quite fondly from my Performa-using days.

I do wish I remembered where I wound up playing with a copy of Exile II pre-overhaul. Maybe that's just what it was like when I tried it.

Boy that dates me.

In the original version of Exile: Escape from the Pit you could select and cast any spell by just typing the letter of the spell before the spell window opened completely but if you had exactly 0 mana the window sort of wouldn't open in the first place. Your mana would be far in the negative anyways though.

I remember haste adding action points in Exile. I remember going through all this trouble getting the 1.1 graphics off my old computer onto a new one. That was so long ago. I think I was in grade school.

Is there a chance that one could convince him to host the full versions of Exile 1, 2 and 3 on Spiderweb Software's main site?

... just wondering ;)
