Lew Leon - finally found the right version

Postby hfric » Fri Nov 09, 2018 4:29 am

For those that do not know back in the golden days of DOS ... a Polish Company named Leryx-Longsoft wanted in on the action ... i like to call them the Polish Obsidian (at that time of this game they worked on 4 other games)

CLASH
G.O.L.E.M.
https://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/golem

In the end only CLASH and Golem came out...one as VOTER GOLEM

the other as well a cheap knock of Heroes of Might and Magic... with kinda good story line

So back to Leon ... wanted to play this fantastic polish adventure platformer ... but never could make it work properly (aka cutscenes did not worked correctly or the game glitched), till now ... and i tell you why ... there are FOUR versions of this game ... yes , 4 ...
the Big Box Original bug free version 1.0
Image
The Second Edition with a box like this ... that had GAME BREAKING BUGS !!!

ImageImage
Third Edition that looked like this...

[bigger pics here http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/lew-leon/cover-art]

and the Bastard Child version 4 the English/German version Broken to hell and back
Image

the version we have and ALL HAVE IS THE BASTARD CHILD ... that does not have an intro , animations are broken and even some are missing... broken translation ? ...

Presenting the V.1.0 that fully works ... with all animations
Code: Select all
https://archive.org/download/msdos_Lew_Leon_1997/Lew_Leon_1997.zip


just mount this CD in your Default Dosbox ... change cofing to core=normal cputype=pentium_mmx , cycles=20000, and install it ... and it works as intended with all animations (well only two are missing Credits and Leryx-Longsoft logo , those you get when you do not set a sound card ... but who carez right ... the main ones work)

and it was a feat ...since collectors go elitist on you when you ask them specific for this version , most of them have the Extra Gra version that was made for Win95/Win98 systems and the Second Edition that goes for 20$... but those have awful hit box problems , so awful you cannot complete this game ... but when you mention the White Big Box Dos Original version all go "for 200$ you can have it" ... :roll:

So yeah, this is the original CD image made in IMA+Sub format from the ONLY WORKING and COMPLETE Dos version 1.0 ... found in the never ending treasures of Archive.org

Soon to land on my Yt place as a LP hehe

Thank you so much hfric for this finding!

I could see (so far) all the videos (including the "Leryx-Longsoft logo") the only video that I could not see is the one of the credits, but it does not matter much.

:thanks:
