Looking for an old RPG I have a Beta of [Infinite Worlds]

Post by Minaro » Sat Dec 15, 2012 5:52 am

So, this old goody gem I actually do know the name of - the problem is that it cannot be found *anywhere*, or atleast I couldn't find it. I found it on one of my old demo CDs, and it's a beta (from 1998). What I'm interested in knowing if there were any further releases and where to find them.
Some info that might be useful:

Apparently this game was eventually released under the title Demise: Rise of the Ku'tan.

Is your demo different from this one? If yes, can you upload the demo anywhere? It could be of historical interest.

[Edit] Here's a discussion that concerns the differences between the pre-release builds of the game and the final version:

[Edit2] You can get Mordor II beta v0.992 at the official site, and the demo of Demise is downloadable here.

Well, what do you know. Yeah, they both definately have the looks of it. From what I understand, it was Mordor 2 -> IW -> Demise, or something like that. I'll give Mordor a shot, cheers!

*Edit* Yup, they're both definately it. Quite an interesting situation I might say :P

Hallfiry at betaarchive.com forums has found some other beta versions of the game:

(Mordor II)
Version 0.90b
This is the first release! You know what that means! I already have a 'fix' list put together for this version, but nothing on the list should really affect gameplay. Just think, the following versions will just be... BETTER!

EDIT:
Infinite Worlds 9935beta patch
http://www37.zippyshare.com/v/25929457/file.html

Infinite Worlds 9935beta full setup
http://www37.zippyshare.com/v/61708874/file.html

EDIT2:
Seemingly a version .994 was planned, but never finished. so there should be no versions between 0.9935b and Demise.

This is now a list of all known versions:

Code: Select all

0.90    - Mordor 2 - First release
0.991   - Mordor 2
0.992   - Mordor 2
0.992r2 - Demise - Unsure if legit
0.993   - Infinite Worlds
0.9935  - Infinite Worlds (Patch)
0.9935  - Infinite Worlds (Full)
1.00r1  - Demise
1.00r2  - Demise
I removed the b from the version numbers, since it only meant "beta".
