Maybe it's old news. I'm sure some of you out there are already aware of this secret little FTP site
loitering out the back of the LucasArts servers. So this news item is for the rest of us!
And what's in this FTP site
you may ask? Ohh, only (by the looks of the filenames, I haven't personally downloaded and tested them yet);Slideshows
(these appear to simply be in-game images for press) of Rebel Assault, Full Throttle, The Dig, and Dark Forces. Demos
of Escape from Monkey Island, Afterlife, TIE Fighter, Loom, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Indiana Jones' Desktop Adventures, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max, X-Wing, Yoda Stories, Outlaws, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Shadows of the Empire, Mysteries of the Sith, and Curse of Monkey Island.
But wait. There's more...
For you neglected Mac owners
Afterlife, Dark Forces, Racer, Sam & Max and X-Wing.
Of course you may need scummVM and / or DOSbox or VDMsound (if you don't know of them, try google) to get some of the older demos to behave on newer computers, but there's something there for everyone over this weekend, surely?
What? You want to rape and pillage the LucasArts' FTP server even further? Well, OK then, just this once. Here are some in-game movies
you can download. Now, be off with you! Yarrr!
Oh, and big thanks to Vengance1003
