    Download it here:
    Repo
    Archive (not yet updated to latest version)

    * MIDI playback using WildMIDI (old MIDI playback using SDL_mixer can be set in the configuration file)
    * minor bug fixes
    * show the Readme in the Documentation submenu

    Edit (09.03.2014):
    Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was updated to version 1.2.0 with the following changes:
    * removed SDL library by notaz from pnd (newer version is in the firmware)
    * newer version of WildMIDI library
    * reworked xmi2midi conversion, fixing minor bugs in the process
    * configuration editor (doesn't support changing button mappings)

    Edit (01.01.2018):
    Warcraft: Orcs & Humans was updated to version 1.2.1 with the following changes:
    * add new MIDI plugin: adlmidi - it plays MIDI music using OPL3 emulator

    the link in the first post is still good but it does seem that the game files are required oh well.

    Yeah, I found it thanks. For some reason I was seeing it on the repo although, I already have it. Does anyone have the full game files? I only found the demo version through search. I haven't tried it yet.

    is it not? sorry, how do you know whether it truly is abandon-ware or not? or is that still illegal?

    Well, there's actually no such thing as "abandonware". It's not a legal term, and the "rules" surrounding it are, unfortunately, actually myths... (If you remember the old "24 hour rule" myth from ROM sites, the whole "abandonware" concept is pretty much a highly expanded version of that. :p )

    @milkshake - No problem. :) I clarified it a little more, but it seems that the forum doesn't automatically mention/show posts that are made while you're editing, as it sometimes does when you're replying. :lol:


    @sebt3 - I'm not too sure about that one... Seems a bit sketchy to be linking to that cite-note...

    I never tried out that game on Pandora.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a digital copy of Warcraft Orcs & Humans?

    My guess is that you have to rely on ancient technology (CD-ROM)

    CD-ROM is merely old, floppy disks are ancient technology. :)
