Wow. The game is 1.8GB. Did they even have that much space in 1994? That must have killed their HDD.


Back then, most PC games on CDs didn't have to be fully installed. Usually, a game like this installs something like 30 or so MBs, but constantly reads the data from the CDs, that needed to be on the drive constantly.


the max a CD can hold is about 700 MB unless it's not built to the red book standard, and if it wasn't, many CD drives wouldn't be able to read it (the Dreamcast used CDs that were not made to the red book standard which is why a lot of folks couldn't just rip them in their PC's optical drives)


Cool, but why are you telling me that?
