That would be interesting.  Unfortunately, the really interesting stuff (like the AP change) is going to require early Mac versions, which seem to be much harder to find -- if they are extant at all.  (And which are also, frankly, even more of a hassle to emulate.)

Here's what I've managed to find as far as old Mac versions go.

Exile 1:
Known missing: 1.0, 1.0.5 and 1.1. Unfortunately, I don't they're very likely to turn up. If you have a copy I'd love to see them.

Exile 1 Editor:
Exile 2:
Known missing: 2.0.1

Exile 3 (for completeness' sake):
Known missing: 1.0.3 (not 1.0.3b)

Wow.  This is awesome.  I'm sort of astonished that it took THAT long for the AP system update... but I guess that would explain a few things.

In case anyone else was going to, I did look through 1.1.2's files for that business in Silvar.  No dice.  If it existed, it was in an earlier version.

I've assembled some changelogs from newsgroup posts, archived versions of this site, readmes, etc., and added a few comments (in square brackets) about things I've noticed as well. They should be helpful for anyone who wants to look in to this stuff.

Mac changelogs

Win changelogs

I suspect if "that business in Silvar" was ever a thing it was taken out in ver 1.1 when the storage space was added.

Never say never :D Featuring: Gray cave walls!
Different title screen!
Still nothing hinky in Silvar, I'm pretty sure someone just made that up!

Also, dropping in a registered misc.dat from a newer version doesn't seem to work with 1.0.5.

Mac changelog updated accordingly.


edit:
Kicked up one last version. Finally found an E2 version history included with a patch, don't really get why he didn't put it in with the full versions but whatever, pasted it into the changelog.

spidweb itself has Exiles available http://www.spiderweb...roductsOld.html

if some other versions then try luck with abandonware-sites.

I'll look into some other abandonware sites.

The links from "ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de", which that site linked to, either didn't work (timed out, even with a proxy [thought it might have been blocked by my isp]) or were detected as malicious by chrome and my AV (possibly a false positive, but you never know with abandonware sites).

Because, as the title and previous 3 pages of discussion indicate, this topic is about OLD versions of Exile.  Not the most recent versions, which is what SW has up.
