Daggerfall (Elder Scrolls II) now free & legal to download

Excellent news, I've been hoping they'd do this for ages (because I certainly wasn't paying £50+ for it on Ebay).


Daggerfall, the second game in the Elder Scrolls series, takes place in the provinces of Hammerfell and High Rock. The Emperor recruits you to exorcise the walking spirit of the late King of Daggerfall, but soon the story unfolds to something far greater than avenging the death of a noble...

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfallaggerfall



Get it HERE from the official Elder Scrolls website

(ps thanks to BobTheSkutter for telling me about this in the first place)

You're welcome, Jim. I've seen you talk about it a few times.
Downloaded both of them this morning, but been busy today. Played The Conduit for a few hours, played a bit of Tales of Monkey Island (loving it, by the way, some classic Monkey Island humour in there). Hope they're good...

Man their servers must be getting clobbered. Download is going at 5k per second.

Yeah, it took me five hours to download the thing. Was like stepping back in time.

Now, though, I can't seem to get it to work. It keeps asking me to insert the CD, and mounting the DFCD folder as it's own drive doesn't seem to work for me. Any ideas?

You need the Dosbox emulator. There's a link to it right on the page where you downloaded Daggerfall.

Re: Daggerfall (Elder Scrolls II) now free & legal to download

^ I'm using DOSBox. The problem is the game isn't recognizing the CD. I tried mounting the CD files on a virtual drive, then mounting both C:\ and K:\ (the virtual drive) in DOSBox, installing to C and then running it, but it was still telling me I didn't have the CD inserted and that it couldn't run.

I don't know if you've done this or not but try doing it exactly as they describe in the instructions pdf on the website . . . beyond that I have no clue

I don't know about you guys but the controls are crazy to get the hang of! makes me wonder when the generally accepted WASD FPS control scheme was introduced

Instructions pdf, you say...

That might help.

While it was fun, Daggerfall was a buggy mess. Make sure you have all the patches and find a save game repair program, you will need it. Save often and leave yourself a long list of save files.

Maybe they should release the source code for it...
It did wonders for Doom and Quake as well as Duke Nukem...

Re: Daggerfall (Elder Scrolls II) now free & legal to download

I've been considering getting into The Elder Scrolls games for a long time. With most major gaming switching over from the PC on to the consoles, I was wondering how Oblivion compares between PC and PS3? Also, how dated is Morrowind nowadays?
