Spear of Destiny
Do you remember before Duke3D and Wolfenstein, there was a game called spear of destiny. I once had it, and want it again. Can I download it somewhere?

We stopped selling Spear of Destiny some time ago - the only way it would legally be available now is through the id Anthology package.

Re: Spear of Destiny
I think there is another way to get Spear of Destiny... (legally)

Recently, GT Interactive re-released Wolfenstein (with Windows 95 Edition on the box). Anyway, this CD contains registered Wolfie, plus Spear and both of the addon level packs for it. If u hunt for it, you can probabaly get it for around 15 bucks or so.

Re: Spear of Destiny
I have a copy of Spear that I found at zellers for ten bucks, it must have been from an old warehouse or somthing...anyways, my problem is that when I run wolf, or Spear, it freezes on the first screen where the little lights pop up next to joystick, sound..etc.

Any ideas on how to fix this Joe?

You're absolutely right - I forgot about that. That CD is published by Activision. I saw it in CompUSA last week for $15.

Vetek - Try this: SPEAR NOEMS NOXMS. Might help - might not. Impossible to tell with no technical info.

You should also delete your config file (config.sod) before doing this. If you run it, and it's whacked, the config file have that whacked info in it.

If it doesn't exist, don't sweat it.

Also, if your sound blaster IRQ is higher than 7, it might not work at all.

Wrong forum, easy question...

SOD came after Wolf3d, the only place I saw it was in the id Anthology, well worth the $50 price tag I paid for the box set too...
I dunno bout finding it any other place...

Re: Spear of Destiny
Thanks for the answer. Now there is only one problem left. To find a shop that ships to The Netherlands.
Anyone any idea?
Amazon does not have it, and Activision does not sent to outside Continental America. And Zellers only in Canada.

Re: Spear of Destiny
I like swapmeets since you can find almost anything there, but just one thing:

If you get something and it doesn't work, it's harder to return it than if you bought it at a store.

I learned that after getting a Diamond Stealth III S540 card that's supposedly bugged or something.

Re: Spear of Destiny
This doesn't have anything to do with SOD, but that would be cool, to see Joe Siegler in CompUSA. =) Do people recognize you ever when you go to the store, Joe?
