Mmmmm, yea, same here. I think I did use a glass sword then too before I got the expansion as well. Now THAT was a long long long time ago.
OT: I scored another full copy of the original ultima7 with FULLY WORKING FLOPPY DISKS last week off ebay for only about $12 AUD. And I Winimaged those babies straight away too.
Whoo! Now I just have to find another serpent isle original to replace my current copy that has stuffed disks.
Also, did anyone else do the "cheat" with serpent isle and the SS expansion on floppy?
I figured out way back when I got both in '93 how to be able to do the SS expansion as many times as I wanted in a single game.
I think I installed it with expansion, played the SS, then backed up saved games, just installed serpent isle, entered and saved game with backed up saves, then reinstalled SI+SS AGAIN, and using that save again, the game thought I hadn't done the expansion, so I saved the world with the silver tree again and was level 10 and above in no time. :)
