• I need help!

    From James Sniktaw@1:340/7 to All on Sun Nov 24 11:42:30 2019
    My older sister was cleaning out her room and found a bunch of old floppies, which she gave to me. At the time, I didn't have a floppy drive, so I couldn't use them. Just yesterday, I finally got a floppy drive, and I almost immediatly put in the one I had wondered about the whole time: "Adventures in Fugawiland." Upon booting the sucker, I only found one file: "2&3.DAT." To my knowledge, that's not the game, as it's a .DAT file, and there's no real way to even run it. Please tell me if I'm wrong, if I can use it, or if I just have a fucked floppy.

    Soounds like it may be the save disk, not the game disk. If you can find the actual game, then you would probably be able to use that disk to pickup wherever the previous player left off.
