Ah, good to know! Thanks, I won't worry about it then. Maybe an original copy of the game will turn up on ebay sometime.

I could play the 800K version on my Plus, too. I just have a thing for playing games in their original format on original hardware.

The original release (on two 400k disks) had disk-based copy protection that was (to my knowledge) never cracked. ICOM removed the copy protection when they rereleased the game on one 800k disk in 1992. You might have to content yourself with playing Déjà Vu on Mini vMac.

The img file works fine in Mini vmac (emulating a Plus). But I'd like to give it a try on my 512K. The game originally came out in 1985 and it's clear from the instructions that the user was expected to use two 400K disks to play the game, inserting first one, then the other.

However, the folder labeled "Deja Vu 2" in the present uploads is too large to fit on one 400K disk. I'm not sure which files can or should be moved to "Deja Vu 1" to make it work. Anyone out there have experience playing the game on a 512K machine, or own the original disks?

Could someone please upload a. zip of this game?

I think this will destroy the game files, except this will be an .img file, suitable for Mini vMac.

Please tell me, is Apple II compatible with a Macintosh?

No, Apple II and Apple Macintosh are completely different systems
(The Apple II line is home computer like Amiga, Atari, and so on).

I just love both Deja Vu adventures! They have nice graphics and a great atmosphere, especially if you love classic movies like The Maltese Falcon. A bit tough regarding the difficulty though, like most 80s adventures...

I really have no idea, but I guess not.
