Talk:Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss
What do you call "complete Ultima Underworld"?
The line "A complete version of Ultima Underworld" can mean two things to me. It can mean both Ultima Underworlds, or it can mean a more complete version of the first game (whatever that would be). I think this need clarification, but since it seems to be based on a copy and paste from http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/ultima-underworld-the-stygian-abyss/trivia (currently at the bottom) (not my idea of authoratiative) this might be difficult to confirm or deny.

- Complete vs. a demo version of the game. There was a demo version of Ultima Underworld that was included with Ultima VII and PC Gamer always (at least back when I was getting it) comes with a disk of demo and shareware games but occasionally includes complete version. -- Fenyx4 19:53, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
- I rewrote the note slightly, since I have a copy of this CD. It does contain the full version of Underworld I, as well as Ultima I and 10 other games. Its listed as a "classic games collection". I added the same note to Ultima I. Browncoat Jayson 20:13, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
In the Trivia section is mentioned: "The Japanese FM-Towns version came with a truly bizarre trinket: an Ankh Paperknife!"
Why is this FM-Towns port not mentioned in the "Differences between the ports" Section?
- Because there are no differences. It is a 1:1 copy, so there was nothing to write about. I nonetheless now have put a mention in.--Tribun 14:51, July 22, 2010 (UTC)
PC 98 version
There was also a PC 98 version (1993) of the game, but is (just like the FM-Towns) identical (except for the text) to the English PC version. It contained a set of translated manuals, a paper map (slightly different layout as original) as well as an ankh-shaped paperknife as trinket. --Arthgon (talk) 11:17, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
