I suppose it isn't as bad as the guy who copied this entire site and made his version in Spanish a few years back.  :P

I remember once someone ripped off a few of our images. Reckon it was some kid who just wanted to set up a webpage for the sake of having one; the result was no where near as good looking as any of StrategyCore's incarnations (if my memory's accurate, the background was simply green).

He has long since updated his site and most (if not all) of our content is gone (from what I see at least).  :D

Wow, it's come a long way - I'd expected it'd dropped off the internet or something. Their reviews date back to before when we found the place though, so either they've been thorough in altering them, or it's a new site who snagged the same domain name...

Hey zombie. Maybe you will be interested in the boxes I have. I don't need them anymore since I have X-Com complete on Steam.

What I have.

Boxed - EU + TFTD on CD. TFTD has polish language instead of spanish and ironically the movies are from floppy version. The CD itself might bit the dust since I couldn't run it on my DVD, few months back.

Boxed Apocaylpse - polish language - movies are in english. I think it contains windows installer but I think in order to run on windows you would need that XP patch. Box is similar to the JPG on the wikipedia. I know that there is other picture because my 'pirated version' had blue screen with 2 soldiers running away from pooper (as seen on the advert here in SC).

Boxed Interceptor - German Language (thanks Hasbro).

All boxes are in polish language - so I guess you don't have those :P
Today I was heading out the door to go to work and noticed a big box outside. I knew it could only be one thing (Polish game versions!!!) so I grabbed it and put it next to my computer. Couldn't concentrate at work thinking about them.  :)

Anyhow, scans of the Polish Apocalypse, Interceptor and the UFO+TFTD Compilation boxes/content are up on the site. I have to say that silencer really takes excellent care of his games... all were in pristine condition. Thanks again, I appreciate it!  :P

Note to self: watch the file sizes more carefully, the CMS software will not allow an image upload of greater than 1 MB for some reason. ;)

Just added some scans of an XCOM (the new game) Iron-On patch obtained through eBay from PAX-East in March. Apparently, these were only given out on day 1 of the convention to those who stood in line to watch the XCOM demo. ;)

BTW: I have 3 of these patches. Posted Image

Nice :)

I'll likely ask the PR chaps if we can get our hands on things like that and more on the run up to the game's launch. I'd suggest we run a competition to give out copies of the game, but since everyone here will have it on pre-order the instant it's available I'm not sure that's worthwhile :D

Added a scan of an XCOM (new game) sticker to the promotional items page on the site today. For some reason the scan was really pixel-ated so I ended up blurring it a bit to hide the mess. Turned out pretty good I guess.

Just put up the front and back scans of the Italian version of Enforcer here! Posted Image Super-duper-duper rare stuff folks, this is the only copy I've seen for sale in the US eBay in 4+ years and I snagged it. Mobygames doesn't even have it. They will though, as soon as someone steals it from this site and uploads it there. Ahem. Posted Image

I purchased the Portuguese/Spanish version of Enforcer recently too (when it rains, it pours). I'll have scans of that up maybe tomorrow (have to pick it up at the post office... the mail carrier couldn't leave it, nobody was home and he needed a signature). Posted Image Much like the Italian version above, this is the only one I've ever seen for sale.

I still need the Brazilian version to finish my Enforcer collection though, so if anyone has a copy they would like to sell, please contact me! (I'm assuming there isn't a Polish or Russian version).

By the way, I have the Enforcer versions page arranged by the UPC code on the back - from low to high. That's the same way I initially set up the page much by accident. Love it how a plan comes together.

Also have a compilation version which I may get soonish. Depends though. I'll let everyone know if something comes of this. Posted Image

I know European cases will always typically be quite similar, but still it's funny to see the unique American one sitting down the bottom as the odd one out. BIGGER and with more ATTITUDE!

That's right! Had the Europeans adopted the American design, then possibly there would have been more sales of this game. Ha! Posted Image

Anyhow, as promised I uploaded pics of the Spanish/Portuguese version of Enforcer. Posted Image Seems like all the European versions have exactly the same disc so that'll make adding a media cell to the tables easy. Posted Image

I was looking at the manual for the game and was shocked at the quantity of customer service numbers Enforcer had: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. Infogrames must've been a huge company to afford all those employees on the payroll. Posted Image Granted, Italy shared the same contact info as France, but still.
