Hoyle Classic Card Games (v2.0)

Postby Semi-Happy Partygoer » Tue Jul 25, 2017 5:05 am

I've been looking high and low for this title and finally found a PC version listed on eBay. Just wanted to check in advance if anyone here has a copy (v2.0) in case any of the disks don't work upon arrival (the description says they do, but still). Naturally I will post proof of ownership once I get them, should I encounter problems.

The disc info reads:

MS-DOS/WIN 3.1
VER # 2.0
INT # 7.16.93

Is this the same one listed second under "Versions" at http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com//index.php?title=Hoyle_Classic_Card_Games, or do the two missing zeros signify a difference?

Probably not. I got the full number from the version file.
01000010 01111001 01110100 01100101 00100000 01101101 01100101 00100001

Unfortunately, I just got word from the seller that they've lost the disks, so I won't be getting the game after all right now. My search continues. Thank you anyway for your help.

Too bad. It took me a while to land a copy. I had a Mac version and then thought that I had found a DOS version, but when it arrived it was yet another Mac version. I finally tracked down the DOS.
01000010 01111001 01110100 01100101 00100000 01101101 01100101 00100001

I've noticed the Mac version is far more prevalent than DOS. Sierra must've shipped more copies of the Mac release, I suppose. In any event, I'll continue to keep a lookout for the DOS version. The seller who lost them promised to contact me should the disks eventually turn up.
