SSI AD&D Gold Box series

Added byDCT's avatarDCT

I know Pools is on here but I'm not sure they mean the original or the one Atari did. So I figured I would just do one for the whole Gold Box line: Pools of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, Pools of Darkness, Champion's of Kyrnn, Death Knights of Kyrnn, Dark Queen of Kyrnn, Gateway to the Savage Frontier and Treasures of the Savage Frontier. Maybe if it's possible throw in either the Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures(a gold box engine construction kit) or the Buck Roger's games(countdown to doomsday and Matrix Cubed) as a bonus game since they also use the same engine.

If anyone is interested, draconian games on ebay just got a lot of these gold box releases in very good condition!

These games would be real great if they were done like the rerelease of Wasteland, and the paragraphs where available without opening the manual's PDF

My first RPG was POR back in 1990 on a XT. Was a bit too hard for me at the time so I abandoned it at Tyranthraxas' castle and turned Curse of the Azure Bonds. Finished that and then the first of the Buck Rogers games. Also finished Champions of Krynn before my XT gave up on me and I couldn't play the rest of the games(had 5 1/4 inch disks). Couldn't afford a new PC until 1995 and by then the CD drive was becoming standard with a 3 1/2 inch drive for floppies and so I couldn't play them anymore. The Gold Box engine games still hold a special place in my heart and I would LOVE to see them on GOG! Even the annoyances like chasing down fleeing enemies at the end of a battle make me chuckle now. There's nothing like launching a fireball spell in the middle of 100 Kobolds though! :)

Yes please: while not as popular as other games, this series of games really defines the "good old games" website philosophy :).

At least, since it's the subject of discussion on a lot of CRPG forums, could you please clarify what's the situation when it comes to who's holding the rights to it? Thanks :)

Trouble is with some earlier gold box engine adventures (particularly Buck Rogers), is they are unplayably fast on todays machines so a DOSBOX/MoSlo (slo mo?) arrangement would be needed?

Add me into the "still have my original copies" on hand. I doubt they still work anymore, but if I can pick up a working Commodore 64 somewhere....

Don't need anymore but GoG should still get it.. You can find it on Ebay or Amazon but the Copy protect. is pretty rare.. I was lucky to get the 9 game complete with everything for so cheap..

This would be a great addition. I actually have the whole gold box series on CD (all 9 games, which I think might be pretty rare), but a ready to go version for modern machines would be great.

I wishlisted these over a year ago, and for a long time we held our breath as the status was "in progress". Now that original post seems to have vanished, even though it's quite clear that this would be one of the most popular releases GOG could make.
Please GOG, can we have some feedback?

Oh, and while they should run under DOSBOX, trying to configure it to recognise the arcane way the PC versions looked for savegames is a nightmare (unlike the Amiga or C-64 versions), so even though I have almost all of these in their original form, I would happily pay for the set again if GOG worked their magic and supplied these in their "ready to run" wrapper.

SSI was the most prolific of the original founding companies of pc gaming. would love to see these on here, including the buck rogers ones. someone should redo these games, and others like ultima 3-6, with a mouse interface

My cousin and I spent literally weeks of our lives (if you add up the time spent - possibly a month) playing Pool of Radiance when we were very young. Even now, into our 20s, we talk about Pool of Radiance with a reverance. One of the most poorly balanced (IE: nearly impossible to win) but fun RPGs we've ever played.

I would pay for these games in a heartbeat.

Yup, I would totally buy this collection. Like Zaleth, I still have the disks in their original compilation box but no way of playing them :)

For me The Dark Queen of Krynn was the best of the pack.

I would buy this in a heartbeat, as for the codes many of the anniversary editions just gave sheet with codes rather than a wheel. Though the wheel would nt be an issue for most of us asking since we still have all our stuff and I even have all the clue books!

As for rights WOC and Atari didnt own the rights when they aquired TSR it was already at SSI ie Ubisoft, so I do not think that would an issue, it would be is Ubisoft would release it after all be have all of the Bioware D&D games.

Yeah, I'd love to be able to play all these games again. Got the gold box and many other single games but all/most are on 5 1/4 floppies so I'm screwed. I'm guessing it is hard for gog to get them since they will be encumbered by multiple rights holders. Also, many of the older ones like pools of radiance had code words used throughout as copy protection which is impossible to strip out, so some sort of virtual wheels would need to be provided.

These games DO work on windows 7! I installed dosbox 0.74 and am REplaying my favorites Pool of Radience, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, and Pool of Darkness. DOSBOX ROCKS!! as soon as I get a bit more spare cash have to make a donation to those folks :)

Hillsfar should be added to this as well. Not the same engine, but you could port chars from Pool of Radiance to it, then into Curse of the Azure Bonds, gain some exp, some HP and it was fun!

Old, clunky, more dungeon crawl than CRPG, but still fun to play. Too bad they don't run well on today's fast computers. A reworking would be nice. Unlimited Adventures should also be included since it was the last of the series.
