3D Realms webmaster Joe Siegler asked me a question about the release date for
Extreme Rise of the Triad
, a retail add-on for ROTT that was released
sometime in late 1995. He's filling in some details about their database, and
was hoping the exact release date could be found here. Unfortunately a lot of
old stories were deleted here as new ones were added back in those days before
we worked out a system for archiving older news. This is not to mention the
site's original laser focus on Quake
. Anyway, it seemed unlikely this
would provide an answer, but he's run out of other avenues, so I volunteered to
ask if any of you might know when the game came out. To be clear, he's not
looking for guesses or vague recollections, but a definitive answer to when this
explain the puzzle:
Does anyone have any true,
verifiable info as to the PRECISE release date for Extreme @RiseOfTheTriad? The
date on the files on the original disc are 1 Nov, 1995, but I can't tell if that
is release date.
It's *NOT* 17 Feb 95 - that's what Google says. That's ROTT Reg date
I can't remember if I set the files on the disc to Nov 1, 1995 intentionally
because that was the release date, or if that was the mastering date. Setting it
for proj release date sounds like something I'd do, but I can't remember for
sure if that's what's happening here.
If you happen to have proof of the real honest to god date, plz let me know, but
have some proof. Don't say you "think" you know what it is, have some proof,
like a retail flyer, or some old store inventory, or a magazine article. Tkx.
Update on this. The 1 Nov 1995 dates on the disc is the mastering date. Someone
found the metadata on an EROTT CD shows it was physically printed on 6 Nov 1995,
so my date is mastering date for sure.
The Extreme @RiseoftheTriad release date is still elusive. Search goes
