Rogue

Rogue 1.0 by Epyx (TRS-80 CoCo3) - roguecoco3.zip

Rogue 1.0 by Jon Lane (DOS) - rogue1_0.zip (Mr. Mctesq was here)

Rogue 1.0 , SN:1148 by Jon Lane (DOS) - ai_rogue_1.0.arj (Mr. Mctesq was here, original filename rogue.arj)

These exes were probably cracked by different people at different times. The exes differ 13 bytes in size.

Rogue 1.0 , SN:0 by Jon Lane (DOS) - ai_rogue_1.0.zip (Mr. Mctesq was here, original filename: rogue.zip)

This looks like an uncracked copy of v1.0. The exe differs from the two 1.0 versions above.

Rogue 1.1 by Jon Lane (DOS) - rogue1_1.zip (Mr. Mctesq was here)

Rogue 1.1 by Jon Lane (DOS) - ai_rogue_1.1.zip (SN:1349, Mr. Mctesq was here)

These are two different cracked 1.1 versions that differ 252 bytes in size.

Rogue 1.1 (Source) - rog11src.zip

Rogue ".1" Beta Test by Jon Lane (DOS) - ai_rogue_.1_beta.zip (Mr. Mctesq was here version, original filename: rogue.zip)

Rogue ".1" Beta Test by Jon Lane (DOS) - rogueEasy.zip (Faris was here, easy version)

Rogue ".1" Beta Test by Jon Lane (DOS) - rogueHard.zip (Faris was here, hard version)

According to the contributor of these files: "They are exactly the same game, but they appear to have been compiled with different difficulty settings, or one (or even both) is hacked. I *think* that the version in the "easy" directory is the hacked version, but I'm not sure."

Rogue 1.45 by Epyx (DOS) - rogue1_4.zip or rogueepyx.zip (Boudewijn was here)

According to Boudewijn Waijers this was never a modified and recompiled version but merely a quick hack with a binary editor.

Then on 1998-08-18 he put up a new version with a TERMCAP file, and that is why the README says "RELEASE 2".
