My first contact with Tex Murphy was when I had found the UAKM trailer in a demo cd, around 1995. As you all remember, those virtual world full motion video games seemed like jaw-dropping wonders back then and the whole trailer was an exciting incredible experience

One can watch the trailer on the UTM site or youtube, but me being the obsessive collector geek would like to download the original video file and keep it in my TM archives.

One good idea would be to use some youtube downloader but still, I have a purist mentality. I'd prefer if the video was the original, unedited, uncompressed, un-Flash-ized video file as it circulated back then.

If someone can redirect me to such a video it would be nice. If not, I must try locating that old demo cd, anywhere it could have been buried :lol:

PS. as the trailer was a freely distributed media, I hope this request isn't violating any copyrights

Oh, and if possible I would like to find the Martian Memorandum teaser. You can download it as a video on this site, but as I see it is actually a DOS demo. Can it be somewhere?

As for the teaser trailer. I have the original floppy disk that it came from (I am the one who posted it) but that's all there is on the disk. The game demo is a separate disk that came later. I have that as well but it has already been posted elsewhere. Here's the link...

if you want the teaser trailer files, I can zip them up for you. Just pm me.

Also, I have demo discs of UAKM and Pandora (they came on some old PC Gamer discs). I could probably zip them up but they would be a bit large to email. I would have to post them online somewhere for you to get them.

There are sites that can convert youtube videos into downloadable mpeg vids, flash vids, or even mp3s for audio.

You could always try one of those sites too.

http://searchfreemp3.com/

here is one.
Just click on Youtube to Mp3 and then insert the link.
Then you can pick what format you want.
