PoP1 for FM Towns

Post by Norbert » November 23rd, 2013, 4:43 pm

Available via this page at Doperoms.
A 388 MB download (includes CD music).

I've also added a page about the FM Towns version at popot.org here.
Includes a 8.8 MB download (includes sound effects but no CD music).
Also has other downloads, including the Unz emulator.

The "PRI1.DAT" file in the ISO is the floppy image of the PC98 version.
Looks like this version is based on that version.

On the PoPOT page you wrote: "Windows users can start at step 16 of the above manual."
However, some kind of virtual CD drive is still needed, because the emulator can't use ISO images.
(To prevent piracy? The Japanese seem to be strict about that.)

Ironically, the only question about disk images in the UNZ FAQ is this:
・ディスクイメージやハードディスクイメージって何ですか?どうして本物のフロッピーやハードディスクが使えないんですか?
What is disk image or hard disk image? Why I do not use a real floppy and hard disk?
Quite the opposite of what I'm talking about.

I keep forgetting that newer versions of Windows have that virtual CD drive feature built in...
