RAMRAID - unlocked content

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

RAMRAID - unlocked content

Post by Arethius_RGC » Fri Sep 26, 2014 12:00 pm

I got the RAM-RAID Game and I'd like to know if there is a possiblity to play it.

I know the content was unlockable via a internet connection but the server is down so no way to get the password. Is there any way to got the passcodes ?

If i had a copy, I could try to reverse engineer the protocols...

It's on-line disc 2, and there are 2 playable levels without needing the internet (''practice'' and ''more practice''. Hope this helps. BTW I think it's much harder than Atlantis.

I'll try to make a copy of the CD and see how I can send it to you. But I can take an few days/Weeks...

How do you suggest I do ?

Hello Arethius

I'm not sure what you mean!!! Have you found more playable levels??

There are two on the disc which you can play, the others need online access...

Hope you are well.

Are you sure that the additional levels are on the disc?

Theoretically they could have been downloaded from the Internet.
Although the download speeds available at that time would argue against that!

I bave heard that the levels are on the CD-ROM you have to unlock them via a password.

Which makes sense when you Think about the limited memory capacities of the CD-I. The p'ayer would have to access the data from both disc and theinternal memory. It would to much for the cd-i don't you think ?
