    You have to look key words up from the 5E Player's Handbook.

    lol.. nice... Guys. THe copy protection is gone, they are perfectly playable. Hillsfar can do some weird things but for the most part that works too. I would advise that people copy characters from Pool of Radiance to Curse and Not Pool of Radiance to Hillsfar as the characters come out very weird.

    Minor correction: it's not all the Gold Box games. It doesn't contain the three Dragonlance games (for which they could easily get the rights), the two Buck Rogers XXVc games (for which it's extremely unlikely they could get rights), or the original Neverwinter Nights (damn near impossible unless someone rebuilds the MMO servers).

    But very pleased to see most of the AD&D games legally available again.

    If you follow OP's link, at the top of the page there is a color picture of a skeleton warrior smashing through a door (it's coming at you!!!).

    Can anyone please tell me which edition and book that came from?

    I have thought of that picture many times over the years. It was one of my absolute favorites back in the day, and have been unable to locate it in a long time.

    Thanks!

    Wanted to update after reminiscing some more: The best AD&D game I played pre-Baldur's Gate was Dark Sun: Shattered Lands. It was a blast. :-) Eye of the Beholder games close second.

    Lands of Lore felt like a D&D game too (EoB clone), and was excellent too.

    Well, it was certainly used as the cover of Eye of the Beholder. I'm not sure if the image was also used (before or after EOB) as the cover of a book.

    Well, the skeleton is certainly of a piece with the covers to the revised 2E PHB and DMG, what with people busting through doors. Maybe it was passed over for the cover of the DMG?

    I'm kind of grumbly that the code often includes a Strength cap for women. Okay girls, you can pretend to be Red Sonja, but heaven forbid you should pretend to be stronger than Conan. ::grumpy face::

    I just got Gateway to the Savage Frontier and in the game folder there's a PDF called Passwords. For that one you had to look up a word in one of the manuals. Presumably for the code-wheel protection there's a similar PDF, but when I was playing Pool of Radiance last year there was 1) a website where you could input the code and get the word; and 2) if you typed STING after the .exe file name at the command prompt it would skip copy protection. That's just for PoR, though, I dunno if there's a bypass for any of the other games, and GOG games run DOSBox in the background. You'd have to edit the config file to put that in.
