Request regarding data2.cab from caesra IV disk

Postby saffronire » Sun May 11, 2008 6:12 pm

This is an odd request, but my Caesar IV disk 1 has a huge scratch down it and the Cyclic Redundancy Check on my computer won't read the file data2.cab. I've managed to transfer all the other data to a file on my computer but obviously I need data2.cab. I was wondering if it would be possible for someone to copy and send me this file?

Sorry if this is in the wrong section by the way, it seemed the most likey place to ask. Thanks.

Isn't there anyone willing to make a zip of data2.cab for me?

That's something that really isn't allowed by the Exclusive Users License Agreement of the game.

You can get a replacement DVD from Sierra if you follow the required steps under the Disk and/or Manual Replacement section in the readme.txt file.

You can also try one of those disc repair kits that will repolish the data surface. I have seen one called the SkipDr (Skip Doctor) demonstrated on the local news. They took sandpaper and scratched a disc then ran it through the device and the disc worked again.

OK what about the discs that can't be fixed i.e. see through pinhole bumps? It isn't like one would be asking for the whole game just a "patch" per say.

If a repair kit doesn't do it, you'll have to get a new copy of the game. Swapping of game specific files isn't allowed, in case someone is contemplating requesting files here.
