View Full Version : Gauntlet II Tandy DAC Upgrade

When Gauntlet II was released for the PC, it came on 2x360KB floppy disks (or possibly 1x720KB floppy). Some copies had a third, upgrade disk that gave the game Tandy DAC support. The user could obtain the disk from the distributor, Mindscape. I cannot find the upgrade disk, which will have a file called gtadss.snd on it.

I am not looking for the game itself, only the upgrade files. Can anyone provide?

I had this game for my Tandy 2500XL on 3.5" floppy disk, the Tandy sound was included. It was MUCH better than the PC speaker sound (my roommate had a ADLib card and was quite jealous). I still have the game but I can't find the Tandy sound files.

Did you have any luck finding a copy? I have not, but would appreciate a point in the right direction if you have any leads!

Thanks

Perhaps you could post the directory listing for each disk? That may help!

Here is my directory listing :

Sorry. I don't have a third diskette.

Let me know if you find it. It would like to see the improved Tandy version

Quick question. Have you ever see the Digger game original box? I'm a crazy PC games collector and I have most of my favorites games in boxes. Digger is one of my favorites that I just can't find the box and no even a good picture of.

Thanks,

Do you have original Digger diskette?

I have copied Digger from original diskette with copy protection.
But it can be backup or dumped by my TCOB.

I seem to recall that Digger was never released in a box; the above picture is a card that went into a clear plastic baggie with the disk.
