As computers evolve, we risk losing classic games from the not-so-distant past. ID Software was one of the very first ones to open source sources such as Doom and Quake. But in time more and more classic games have been open sourced. One of the most popular games Transport Tycoon Deluxe is now living an amazing life thru OpenTTD etc.

However. This news item is about Ultima 7, which is an RPG from the early 1990’s. It is still huge and got many following, and many consider this game to be one of the most immersive games ever
produced.

Exult is a open source project to recreate Ultima 7 for modern operating systems, using the game’s original plot, data, and graphics files.

2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended)
3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly)
4) A copy of the PC game data files
