I got the visit of an English guy on DK.net that told me something extremely interesting. :eek:

On the AssemblerGames (http://www.assemblergames.com/) forum, someone sells something extremely rare: four beta versions of Dungeon Keeper 2 at the price of $150 US. If you wanna see the post by yourself and perhaps even buy those copies, you must register to the AssemblerGames forum first and then get there (http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25492).

As a proof, here are the four pictures of the discs:

I'd like to buy the discs myself, but unfortunately, I don't have cash. If someone here is rich enough, this is a REAL OPPORTUNITY that shouldn't be missed!!!

Hmm... usually bots advertise like this, are you sure you're not being controlled DragonsLover? :P

What special abbtributes do these have anyways?

DragonsLover

A bot? I don't think so...

The guy didn't tell much about the attributes. He was just a messenger. You should get the details on AssemblerGames forum in the said topic.

Does he sell $150 a piece or all of them together? And does he sell them seperately?

These should have a lot of interesting things inside... Like source codes and debugs... This may be our key to DK2. We HAVE to get at least one copy.

DragonsLover

Dunno. The guy didn't specified. I guess it's 150$ for all of them as the way the guy told so. Here's what he said:


Sometimes in the forum somebody come and sell rare stuff, and in this occasion they are selling four (4) betas of Dungeon Keeper 2, at the price of $150 (USD Dollars).

Again, you should get the details on the AssemblerGames topic.

I was teasing you. :P

I wanna buy them, I have to wait for a moderator to activate my account.

I never spent my Christmas money, and I have more allounce money saved too, because I hardly ever buy anything.

If I get them, I can distribute the info for you guys to see too. Then we could figure out DK2 and perhaps fix some really messed up stuff.

Debug info yes, source code - extremely unlikely.

It really is a golden opportunity it seems, how on earth did the 'seller' get a hold of those discs anyway? ex-bullfrog employee maybe? if so wouldn't it be worth some time and effort to see if he can shed some light on most the issues DK2 has within it?

Tried to register on those forums and got an error saying my e-mail address was banned.. might be due to hotmail.. I dunno :p

Either way, good luck to anyone trying to grab those discs, nice find by DragonsLover as well :)

Source code is rather unlikely... but in one of Syndicate Wars betas, they did left one of the source files (a header file, to be exact). Maybe...

Ok, I don't want anyone to get too excited, because I do not promise anything.

But.

but but but.

I might get 3 pre-release DK2 press-kit cd's for free in nearest week or two. Negotiating about that atm.

Once again, no promises. Don't expect anything. I found a guy who had those cs's 2 years ago. There are 2 obstacles: he might lost/sold/whatever them, 2, he might want something for them.

Will post asap if I get any news from him.

Can someone remind me in 8 hours in case I forget, I'll make a note but just in case 8 hours someone may remind me.

He would have notified me if the deal was off, so no worries there. Besides, looking at the posts in that thread it seems no one is really interested in the DK2 Betas (They're on crack if you ask me) :)

Edit:

I haz sent my PM to myself from the past to the future to save the world from dah distruction. :)

Well I got some bad news, still no replies at all. I think I know what happened.

Basically, I was to send information from my paypal account. I wasn't too sure what information exactly to send so I ask my brother. He doesn't tell me (How helpful) and instead tells me to go onto ebay because "He could be trying to scam me" and with ebay I'd be covered. I also was familiar with ebay so I sent him a message requesting this.

He probably figured I was the one trying to scam him, if in the case he initianally wasn't trying to scam me, and also thought I was going to use ebay to do so. I was very new at the forum, not even posts, just PMed him, and so I can see why he would think that if he does that is.

He probably never replied because he thought I was trying to scam him, in which case I wasn't.

Maybe PM him again or post in the thread about wanting to purchase them?

Say something like "Hey I'm quite new here, I'm just wondering are the Dungeon Keeper 2 discs still up for sale?"

Sire
February 22nd, 2010, 02:09
You may want to direct him to this forum and saying you want to purchase it on behalf of the KK community. That may work (although he may jack up the price...).

Oh so maybe it isn't something wrong on my end! I wonder what happened to him, I'm urged to attempt to fix DK2 but we might want some beta data first in order to do that.

Rawr, I wasn't expecting you to sign up here though, that caught me by surprise! Although DragonsLover is here too so yeah... :P

I'd like that place better if I could read what it said, XD

I don't exactly know why he did not respond to emails or PM. He's still active on his board, so he read all messages... In my opinion, he probably has already sold them... Unfortunately for DK2 community :-s Lost forever :mad:

Concerning my presence here, it's justify by the need to update me on all projects DK, especially since DK.NET has been hacked for the 3rd time in 6 years...

BTW, I congratulate KeeperFX & WFTO team. Theses projects are awesome. They R an example for us all. I hope to offer the community a new French DK.NET a few times, despite my professional activities that take me too long.

Be seying U.

Honestly if someone else was after them, they would have tried to get them by now. Unless they really are an ass and try to get it so we can't have it but considering it ain't exactly free, the odds of that happening are pretty unlikely.
