Zak McKracken - FM-Towns

Ok... I know what you are thinking... "don't start..."
But does anyone of you actually got it or seen it or something?
I mean the ISO file without audio is pretty known. And the zip file with the wav files in awfull quality is also known.

But a real copy/original? Anyone?

What was in the box?

Someone?

One?

Hrm...

Nope
Casa suggested to "peep", I first didn't see a good reason for it, but after that I've decided to follow his example.
Just for case.

I think this thread may be closed now...

For those of you who are verry verry excited now:

No! We dont exchange the Zak FM-Towns ISO now and you can't have it!

Really! Nobody seems to have it! But this thread should stay open for the possibility that someone actually has the FM-Towns ISO.

And Zak256 is of course totally playable under ScummVM. But none of have the ISO, so don't ask. :P

Seriously, in my next communique with LEC Legal I'll ask if they can re-release this. But I suspect, as with LoomCD, they didn't retain the rights to it.

LOL!

Zak McKracken doesn't belong LucasArts as Loom CD-Rom doesn't. There is no way that they will rerelease it!

Would be great though..

Can't belive nobody has it... wouldn't even mention Indy3 or Loom for FM-Towns wich unfortunately (?) DO exist... ; (

They made it up. Both of them existed only on C64 and Atari 5200 and 7800.

What the hell is 'FM - Towns'?

The FM-Towns was an old japanese console as far as I know.
I THINK it was also called the pc-engine which you have probably heard of but then again im probably wrong.

I think FM Towns is a standalone system, if this site is correct. From what I can tell, only Zak and (maybe) Loom was made for it.

PC Engine=Turbografx-16, the mecca of hardcore old school gaming.

This is the original (yep, Japanese) FM Towns machine. Very much like a PC, games had to be installed...


..but with the FM Towns II (Also known as the FM Towns Marty) you didn't need to install games...so I guess it was more like a console:


The games came on CDs.

So you have a choice of either buying a Japanese Computer or a Japanese System to play the Zak Mckracken FM TOWNS game (or any other FM TOWNS game) The games and consoles are also very hard to find and very expensive. About $500 for the console at http://www.gamechoice.com.hk

Surely the Japanese Ebay will have some of these FM towns games. Isn't there a way to emulate them on PC if they're on CD? It wouldn't be illegal I think, as long as you bought the game.

There may be a way of finding an emulator and the rom somewhere. You really should own the original game though.

Proof? Well... can't. But on the Zak FM-Towns CD were demos of Indy and Loom. You can see the folders in the ripped version I got but no actual data. And the music is on their (last two songs).

Scabb, I see no other LA games on that page.. that's all I was looking for. I wouldn't think Zak would be the only game for the system :P.

Perhaps Zak did poorly and the ports of the other 2 never came to be.

Well.. you can see the INDYLOOM folder, right? And you will belive me that the music is on the CD, right? Seems pretty clear to me.

Strange.. The interactive timeline says Indy3 and Loom were both on FM Towns, yet Zak gets no mention.

Zak Mckracken in 256 colours and ScummVM graphics filters is brilliant
