After Dark version 1.0 (1989), plus the After Dark version 1.1c Updater (1990).

Tommy: How did After Dark 2.0 differ from 1.0 overall?

Jack: Miles of difference. The difference between an engineer and an artist.

Tommy: Let me dig a little deeper here. What did 1.0 include module-wise, and did it ever ship in a retail box like 2.0 did?

Jack: Oh yes, it was boxed. Shipped on floppies. Included raindrops, Starry Night, worms. I don't remember all of them, but there was not a single bitmapped image. Everything was lines and circles. Big hit nevertheless.

Tommy: The reason I ask this is because everyone always talks about 2.0 and later versions. I personally have never seen 1.0 myself.

Excerpt: LEM interview with Jack Eastman (Web Archive)

The updater includes several version 1.x modules that are not included in the version 1.0 archive.


If you have an undamaged After Dark 1.0 disk, we would appreciate a disk image.

Happy to announce that I've reacquired my After Dark 1.0 disk (still works great and all modules are there) and will be uploading it here soon!

the disk "after dark 1.0" needs minor repairs. do you want to repair it?

This error message is generated when trying to mount a disk on a Mac running SSW 6 and earlier. It means the disk does not contain (or has lost or damaged) it's System 6 compatible "Desktop" file.

This is an invisible file the SSW 6 and earlier Finder wants to rebuild so it can finish mounting the disk.

Unlock the image (if locked) and let the Finder "repair" the disk. All will be OK after that.

It is possible to download additional modules somewhere? For example, Fish and Flying Toasters.

All right. Macintosh Classic Mac OS 6.0.8, StuffIt 4.0.1 and Disk Copy 4.2

Wow I've been looking for this for a long time! What a cool thing to see, I've never actually even seen After Dark 1.0.

Does anyone know how many modules there are supposed to be?

Thanks so much for sharing!
