Harry the Handsome Executive Custom Levels

In light of the fact that Ambrosia Software's site is down, I realized that I downloaded the custom Harry the Handsome Executive levels that were on Ambrosia's site. You can find the page on the Wayback Machine, but you can't seem to get to the downloads.

Thankfully, I think I have all or at least most of them saved. They are saved on a Windows machine, so I'm not sure any uncompressed files will still work. It's still better than nothing, though.

With all of the archival efforts I see on this site, I'm glad to be able to give a little back once in a while, however sporadic or random it may be.

Neat. Usually broken files can be "repaired" with ResEdit, although icons are usually lost. I do have some music from the game (also from Ambrosia) that I should upload somewhere sometime.

This is a great archive, Tanara! I downloaded a few of the uncompressed files, and they appear to have all their data.

You make a very good point about ASW being down and the terrible loss of their addon pages. Of general interest to Ambrosia fans, there's a full archive of their downloads at Cythera Guides (http://www.cytheraguides.com/archives/ambrosia_addons), but I really like the idea of adding the extras directly to each game's page here on the Garden.

In a funny case of coincidental timing, a kind fellow archivist named John reached out to me about mirroring his collection of custom Harry levels that never got uploaded to ASW's page. Hopefully that means all the custom Harry addons will be well-preserved far into the future!

The Collector's Edition of custom files shared by John has been added to the Harry page! He had assembled a bunch of custom worlds that weren't saved anywhere else, plus the installer for v1.0.0 of Harry which was also hard to find (I think it might be on MacAddict 16 but haven't verified). I added a compilation of ASW addons as well and will update it with a comment so people browsing that page can find Tanara's mirror.

Lots of great options for Harry fans to play custom games now! Smile
