My water damaged box of Elvira the Arcade Game.
The box corner, front face and poster were damaged.
The inner box had survived better.
The poster had also picked up water damage.
Poster damage to both sides.
I also had to mend the first of the game disks.
This was the box art in its damaged state.
This was the box art fully reinstated.
The poster in its damaged state.
The poster in its repaired state.
And earlier that month
Elvira you failed me
Elvira the Arcade Game
Elvira.. What lovely artwork.
Sadly Disk 1 was busted.
I do have another working set.
There are just the two disks.
So I X-copied the disks...
And woke Elvira up with my copied set.
Managed to get into the game on
using the book for the password.
So I placed the copied set in the box.
Time to fire up the 1500 and see if
the disks work on that machine.
The game was OK until it reached this point
and then kept bombing out.
So I used my copied first disk and the
original second and could fly past the
dreaded crash point.
I was able to continue and enjoyed
a good hour playing the game. Great fun.
For all the very wonderful computer
retro gear I have featured on this
website this image of Elvira gets
more hits than any other. No idea why
