Atari 520STE Discovery Xtra - Different release?

Postby kodak80 » Fri Mar 04, 2016 1:51 pm

I have just purchased a copy of this pack but it seems to have differnt software to the one on Atarimania. Just wondering if this was released only in Australia?

Pack contains:
DXA: Language Disk
DXB: Dragons Breath
DXC: Anarchy/Super Cycle
DXD: Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade

That's probably the UK release on Atarimania.

Also the booklet is different.

Did you buy the whole lot, including the STE? I'm wondering what the box's sleeve would look like but the graphics is probably adjusted to the software package.

I only bought what you see in the photo. Just the manual and disks. The box in the photo has an Aussie retailer price stamp on it which may indicate it was an Australian release.

Just checked my collection and it seems that I have both.
1 set of yours
2 sets of the other ( I put DE3 on top of the other by accident) and 3 extra disks (1-DXA and 2xDXB)

Maybe there was 2 kind of packs over the time and they were not necessarily region specific but I'm only guessing here.

//I'm in the hunt for the original boxed pack though.

Thanks for checking. You've answered my question. So it wasn't Australian specific just 2 different releases that look like they were available worldwide. :cheers:

I have one, sourced in Aussie a few years back, the DE version. Your language disk and manuals are different too, is it single or double sided? Disk title on mine is XTRAVER2.DE1. Double sided.

There is an ad for Hisoft basic in the purple manual, in UK pounds too.

I'm betting yours is VER1. The Basic manual looks like the original ST one.

This is very interesting release as most of the games are from older Turbo Pack. I've never seen any ads in UK mags for this set.
