With the hint books for Exile no longer in print, The Harehunter presents, with the approval of Jeff Vogel, a hyperlinked
version of the hintbook for the enjoyment of all.
Versions of Exile II
There were two main versions of this game. There are no doubt some differences in the game engine itself, but the most obvious difference was the graphics. There has been much discussion on the Spiderweb Forum as to preference to these different graphics. The only one available for download from Spiderwebs website is version 2.0.
Version 1 Graphics are here.
For those who have never seen them and are curious and for those who have seen them and prefer them I present a zip download of these graphices. You can use them in version 2 of the game by replacing the version 2 files with these. Please make sure to make a backup of your game before doing this.
While there are other sites you can download version 1, the Windows installer often has trouble. That is in part caused by the fact it was written for Windows 3.1, a 16-bit OS. Therefore, I present a zipped copy of the installed versions.
One other alternative is to install it in a DOSBOX shell. I have gotten it work in DOSBox, but you
have to install either Windows 3.1 or Windows 98 within the DOSBox shell.
These are not registered games. If you have a registered version 2 installed, you can copy the MISC.DAT file into the directory, or you can contact Spiderweb Software for a registration key.
