Old Spectrum Holobyte "Orbiter"

So I'm looking for an copy of the old Spectrum Holobyte "Orbiter" game for the Macintosh.

A couple of months' worth of diligent searching have turned up nothing. God, I loved this game, and I find it hard to believe no one out there has a copy. (Plenty of copies for DOS, none for Mac. Go figure.)

Who remembers this one, and more importantly, who has a copy?

I just attempted an upload of orbiter. I hope it worked. I used firefox, because I have had no luck uploading using safari.

Is it ok if I completely freak out and start singing your praises publicly and loudly?

I seriously can't thank you enough, man.

Unfortunately, the download link is giving me some sort of XML error as opposed to this sweet, sweet game. Hopefully there's a way to fix this?

Doc Robot - click on the Edit This Page... link at the top right side of the Orbiter page. Click on the Filename link, and the download should start (NOT the upload BUTTON, but the clickable filename - Orbiter.sit

Cheers. I have the manual, and I'll scan it in and post it some time over the next week or so.

Manual additions are always welcome. It's a nice addition to the game entry. Smile

Just posted the manual. Looking at it reminded me of how great that game is.
