Thread: EPYX World Games Disk Image

  1. #1

    Default EPYX World Games Disk Image

    I recently bought a bunch of vintage PC games and this EPYX World Games is one of them. Unfortunately, the disk does include any files on it and seems to have been formatted. I am looking to write the original image to the disk to restore it. The problem is that I can only find 720KB disk images which is not compatible with the disk format (360KB).

    Does anybody have the original disk image for this? If you happen to have this game disk, could you image it and share it with me?

    Thank you in advance!

    Epyx World Games is a booter, so you will not see any files on the disk when you look at it under DOS. Have you tried booting it on an appropriate platform?

    Disk images are available definitely, here's one location:

    Thanks a lot for the tips! I tried to boot my pc xt with the disk and it loaded the game without a problem. They did it this way to prevent illegal copies?

    Yes, sort of. But as you can probably guess it didn't really help.

    Another reason was to bypass DOS for having more memory available to the game.
