Don't forget to check out the Extras!
Just because they're a bit easy to miss, a reminder to take a look at the extras that come with this game. You can find them at ..\Steam\SteamApps\common\Wasteland\Extras

The extras includes the original Manual and Paragraph Book, reference card, Wastaldnd Survival Guide hintbook, original portaits GIFs and uprezzed portraits, the music for this game in WAV format, and a set of WL2 art.

Right click on Wasteland 1 in your Steam Library -> Properties -> (Tab) Local Files -> Browse Local Files

Holy crap, the hintbook, this is AWESOME

Are these the same extras available on the GOG version?
Dragoon Nov 16, 2013 @ 10:42am 
Yes, and @ Brother None you guy should place this info at the store page like other games do.
It too much of an inconvenience that people need to check the Steam forums first to find out about this. In my opinion most will run the the game immediately after downloading/installing and miss this.

extras are nice, but the books are REQUIRED for the security checks and supplimental story beats. Is there any new content or artwork?

The art has all been updated and smoothed out, and a soundtrack has been added. The paragraphs now pop up and are read as voice overs, which is a nice touch. There are no security checks, but as I recall, there never were. The paragraph book was used because back then you couldn't fit all that info on a floppy. I would recommend bringing up the hint book in a seperate window, because you definately need to reference it (for clues, not for any old school DRM). So while the game itself remains the same, it's been updated to run on modern computers, and looks and sounds much nicer than it did back when I first played it back in '87. Playing it now, and really enjoying it all over again.

I love that you have voicework even for the fake paragraphs that aren't in the game.

No, the books are not required to play the game. All paragraphs have been added into the game with voice overs.

No, it was old-school DRM.

No different than the code wheel used in Monkey Island, #3 on that list. If it were a size issue they simply would have added a fifth and sixth floppy disc to the game, but that's unlikely because entire novels can fit into 360KB.

Hmm, I think it would be more a memory than a disk space problem. With only 64kb ram like on C64 the last thing you want is waste space for text. You need it already for graphics, sound and of course code.

Hey Thanks...I wasn't paying attention (like you pointed out) as I had this game back in the mid 80's when I was running a C64. I got nostalgic and forgot all about the extras! Thanks again!
