Hello everyone; I'm new to these forums, and I had a quick question that someone more knowledgeable than I will hopefully be able to answer.
A few months ago, I purchased (for $1.99 on eBay) a boxed copy of what I thought was the original pink-box EGA version of LSL1. When I opened up the box, I was surprised to see the copy protection materials from the VGA version inside. I've done a bit of research, and this seems to be a 16-color EGA version of the VGA remake. It includes two 5.25" floppies as its media. My question is: does anyone know anything else about this version, i.e. rarity and why it's in the pink-box and not the blue one? I can post pictures if necessary.
Off hand I would have said that it is the EGA version of the SCI remake mismatched in the AGI box, but for the requirements label listing that it supports sound cards. It is an odd duck. I have several EGA versions of the VGA games and all of them have the same box as the VGA, just with a different requirement label.
But the puzzling thing is the requirements label. It says "Supported: Roland MT-32, LAPC, CM-32L, Ad Lib, Sound Blaster, PS1, and Game Blaster". That never appeared on an AGI box that I can think of. I would suggest the possibly of an early release, but the disks say VER#2.0.
The side of the requirements label also claims that a 256-color version is available as well. I've talked to MusicallyInspired over on another forum, and he's told me this: "Sometimes the remakes come in the original boxes. The same has been known to happen with Space Quest 1 and the box with stars and the space ship without the screenshot on the front."
