  • Well at least I gave you all a good laugh!

    I was absolutely pissed when I asked the question and made the Carnal sin of spelling disc with a K.....................:) For shame on me!

    So that's what they meant when they asked to "insert disk 47" ^_^

    Plus I think the Tales 3.5 disk version would be at least 60 times taller.

    Naw. By my count, that's 84 disks. If it would take 949 discs to contain Tales, the stack would only have to be just over 11 times taller. Which means we just have to quote it 8 more times and we're good.

    Most computers don't even have floppy disk drives now. Now how are we going to make good use of our 84 discs? :(

    Nowadays most computers have enough memory that you could load the whole game before playing, just sitting there for some hours doing nothing but changing disks :D :eek: :(
    How about this option?

    But how do you even play it? Using the powers of your mind, maybe. 8D



    There should be one on the Virtual Boy.

    I counted 64. x that on 1.44 meg and you get like 90 Mb. That's not even enough for one episode, you need at least 200 Mb, i.e. 160 disks or so. So your counting is good, but it's rather 15 or so piles, not 11.

    They could just use pigzip.
