Non-interactive demo versions and screenshot packs

Post by MrFlibble » December 23rd, 2012, 1:56 pm

This thread is sort of a clone of Litude's missing versions thread, however the focus is on official extras like non-interactive demo versions, slideshows, screenshot packs, press releases etc. These files certainly have historical value and could be added to the site in my opinion.

BTW, leilei, you also mentioned some Quake shareware patches IIRC, right?

Thankies! I've split the shareware patches into a separate thread so that this one doesn't get overloaded with various information.

I've added some of the stuff from your list, hopefully the files which have weird names can be found with their original filenames elsewhere.

I've encountered this pack but it seems the same as the one I've linked to except half of the screeshots are missing. Are you sure it's a separate release? The date stamps on files seem to be identical.

BTW, there's a completely different, much later preview slideshow of Arena, found by Awoo, which can be downloaded here:

Also, found this nice screenshot pack for Heretic, with some early shots. I think those were featured in an Interactive Entertainment preview of the game: HRTCPCX.ZIP

My bad, I didn't check it thoroughly, I thought the file I had linked to was the same as the one by Awoo.

That magazine used to have some awesome previews. The CD actually has a few videos of the beta version of Heretic in action as well. The original preview is here.

BTW, have you noticed that there are quite a few differences from the final release?

In SHOT3.PCX, the area where you meet the first quest-giver lacks the screens at the back, and the full-screen character portrait is not shown during the dialogue. Also, the selection cursor looks like some sort of a sword, and not as the Sigil as in the final release. (I also think the quest text might be a bit different but I'm not sure about this.)

In SHOT5.PCX, SHOT6.PCX and SHOT7.PCX, visible are several characters that look like the Strife Guy (although it just could be simply Front soldiers) - I wonder if these could be shots from the multiplayer/co-op mode?

Also, the shots from the first town show a different sky texture, which is very similar to the one in the first levels of Doom II.

I actually also have the first screenshot pack on my computer. It's quite interesting as even the message font has only been partially replaced (with some letters using the red doom font and others using the yellow strife one). I've temporarily uploaded it here.

Also have some other screenshots gathered from around the web of which most should be pre-release screenshots but I'm not certain about all of them. Also temporarily uploaded those here. (Don't mind the modify dates, I don't think they quite match with the date as to when the shots were taken.)

Here's a slideshow demo of Game-Maker 2.0. There's also a playable slideshow thing promoting v3.0, grafted into the opening of Peach the Lobster. I don't think that fits the thread's remit, though.

Hmm, the Union Logic preview mentions a game called Tactical Factor, however I have been unable to find any more info on that one. Was it even released? maybe under a different title?

Also, what other games besides Vinyl Goddess From Mars has Union Logic published? The ordering info in Vinyl mentions Tactical Factor, TeenAgent and Radix as upcoming games, but the latter two have been eventually published by Epic MegaGames.
