Playing U7 - again

Topics: 
Games

UltimaVII, one of the older, but better, fantasy games ever, now can be played on WinXP or Linux too. Exult, an U7 game engine lets you play and revive the game in its full glory. That is, if you have a soundcard compatible with the game. In those days, Soundblasters were almost omnipresent, but now that's not the case. I can play the game with all FX, but the midi songs. If you decide to play again, it might be helpfull to remember that the way to succeed in Ultima 7 is SERIAL KLEPTOMANIA ;)

Last implementations of Exult add sound effects and music to the game. They are available as separate download packs.
