Hi

I've recently been looking for the talking version of Star Trek: Judgement
Rites in which the original actors of the original series provide
voice-overs for the subtitled text. However, up to now I've not been able
to locate a copy at all. All the ones I've found appear to be without the
voice-overs

I have a sealed copy of the Federation Compilation which mentions
voices for 25th Anniversary, but not Judgement Rites. I also have a
White Label copy, but this definitely does not have the voice-overs.
Without buying blindly on eBay trying to locate a copy that does have it,
is there any way of accurately determining which copies have the
voice-overs and which do not?

Thanks

Pan

Star Trek Judgment Rites is the very first Graphic Adventure we ever played.
The one we played did not have voices and I believe came on diskettes. A
while after I received the Collectors Edition for Christmas which did have
the original actors voices. Below is a link I found where I believe someone
has the Collector's Edition for sale.

I haven't played JR in a while - mostly because I can't get it to work on
Windows ME. Originally played it on a Dell P100 in DOS mode. Would love to
play this and 25th again if anyone can give advice on how to get it to run.

Thanks.

Thanks for the information. In fact, I have found out that the sealed
Federation Compilation edition is indeed the voice-enabled version.
However, it was very difficult to tell this from any of the packaging,
The only recognisable difference between the non-speech and speech
versions is the size of the CD.

I would recommend you use Dosbox for running these games on Windows ME:

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

It's a DOS emulator for running old programs. I have used it to play both
Judgement Rites and 25th Anniversary. Because this program emulates a DOS
environment, it is slower than a native system. However, I found both
games ran acceptably fast after some performance tweaking on my Athlon
750mhz (hardly state of the art these days). I noticed some slowdowns in
action scenes, but nothing significant. I use Dosbox for lots of old DOS
games these days and can highly recommend it.

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Pan
