For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
This game works with: Basilisk II,

"This follow-on to Arthurian RPG adventure Spirit of Excalibur, Vengeance of Excalibur picks up where the old one ended. While power in Britain has been restored after the death of King Arthur and the destruction of evil sorceress Morgan Le Fay a terrible force has been unleashed. The demonic Shadowmaster, a dark summoning of the slain witch, is terrorizing Britain entrapping the King and stealing the fair court enchantress, Nineve. You must command the knights of the kingdom to find and destroy the vile beast.

The gameplay takes place in seven acts or episodes and features a mix of RPG, adventure, and simple strategy game (for combat) elements. The gameworld itself is rich and diverse (loosely based on medieval Spain) featuring dozens of towns, cities, and castles. Traveling from location to location takes place on an overhead map, while each actual location consists of picturesque hand-painted backdrops depicting the type of environment it is set in. The interface is entirely mouse-driven (although keyboard short-cuts are also present), iconic, and streamlined to make it accessible to inexperienced game players."

Thanks for your help, MikeTomTom. Trying to activate the image with DiskCopy was my first idea as well, alas to no avail. It said the .dsk file has no known file type.

After reading your post I went to download MacZip and uncompressed the file again. Lo and behold, now it is recognized and mounted by DiskCopy. So in case anyone else runs into this problem, go the MacZip route Smile

Yes. The archive was probably created with MacZip (you can find it here at the garden). Its best to use MacZip to extract and restore the resource forks and creator IDs correctly from these zipped files. MacZip runs on Mac OS 7 - 9.2.2 and can also run under Classic on a PPC Mac OS X.

Otherwise, just drag your extracted .dsk file onto a closed Disk Copy 6.1.2 or newer icon. Disk Copy 6.x will launch and mount this .dsk file OK.

These .dsk files will be DiskDup+ files. Stuffit expander makes bit of a hash of extracting Zip files, it never seems to get the creator IDs of files right. MacZip is the way to go for perfect extraction with files upped by MCP.

Did anyone get this to run on an actual Mac? I'm asking because the included .dsk file isn't recognized by OS 9 as an image, but a Simple Text file. All attempt to mount it using various programs didn't seem to work. Any ideas?

The disk that came with this was corrupted, but thankfully Le Grenier du Mac already had it uploaded, so that is what is here, together with my scans in PDF format of the package and its contents.

ADD: Also I have the previous title, Spirit of Excalibur, which I will upload in coming days or weeks.
