I have the UK version of Legacy of The Ancients. The question is that although the German version is submitted, should not there be the UK version as well?

Done. (I only need to scan the back of the Manual)

Interestingly enough, I DO have TWO different kind of boxes of the UK release for the C64. They're side to side on the pictures;

The Back;

The Side/spine;

Another Side/spine of the box. Can you see the EA logo on it? That one has also a much smoother sides than the other one without the logo who has a much rougher surface. If you know what I mean.

The much more difference is in the Code Wheel;

The one that I have scanned and contributed on MG;

PS: Sorry, that I have done it this way, but my Photobucket acted up again. Sorry.

If you see differences (apart from the plastic casing) submit both. Also submit release info for UK if missing. Just make sure to link to a verifiable source for the release (linking to your own scans might just be sufficient)

As you MAY have noticed the ONLY thing that is different is the Code Wheel and the plastic casting. Everything else is the same. (front cover, back cover, EAN, manual*, floppy disk)

Where to put the Code wheel? A new entry? But all, but the code wheel is the same. Or should it be it in the same one that I already submitted as Other: Different version of the Code Wheel? If you know what I mean.

Have you ever seen the two different castings for Legacy of the Ancients and what is known about them? Because I am not sure what to make of it. If you know what I mean.

  • The ones that I submitted here. Except for the floppy. And yes, I know that it maybe harmless to scan the floppies, but.....still...I do not know.
