    Default 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 :

    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.
