Ok, so random post, but I thought someone here might appreciate this.

I was just going through a box of stuff from my family's storage and came across a CD with a Jurassic Park logo on the front. I put it into my computer and it triggered a memory.

When I was like 12 or 13 I emailed one of the developers of Trespasser and they sent me a CD with poster art, sound clips and trailers. Just a random mix of things.

I was in New Zealand so it was a crazy thing to get posted in the 90s when post was much slower and CDs weren't easy to burn.

Anyways, I thought that someone might want the files in case they were rare.

Sounds interesting. Definitely worth a look at least. This looks like something tatu or madppiper would handle...

Welcome, Mr Bones, to Jurassic TresCom. That sounds quite interesting! What was your experience of the game growing up?

Thanks all!

Tatu has been in touch and I'll supply the files. :)

I was so excited about the game growing up, hence how I somehow made contact with the game developers.

I remember playing the game and loving it despite it being an absolute nightmare to run on a PC at the time hahaha.

Still a brilliant game though, so forward thinking and immersive. Attenborough's dialogue is stunning.

I used to frequent the Trespasser sites back in the day. Like waaaaaay back in the day.

Wouldn't it be great if Universal could deliver a great JP game like this today.

Well, welcome to the Asylum... once you're inside, you can't get out anymore.

Again thank you for this!
Sadly it didn't have as many content as I was hoping for. However, it appears this was sent in 1997 based on what is on it, so very early.

https://www.trescom.org/download/fan-se ... evelopers/ (115.39 MB)

However, it did have a bit higher resolution of this image (along with no watermark):

New:

The rest of the contents:

- One Trespasser art (Higher resolution that we previously had!)
- A scan of the CGW (Computer Gaming World) cover of the March 1997 issue (Earliest known proper Trespasser preview.)
- Two sound effects of Raptor Growl and Raptor Breath dated 1996
- Movie trailers for Jurassic Park and Lost World: Jurassic Park (Appears to be in-house rips due to how some trailers have in-house information that shouldn't be included in trailers shown to public).

I wish we could get the level (or whatever you want to call it) where those screenshots were taken...

Great, I'll take a good look at them. And thanks for sharing!

Just had a look/listen. Nice stuff! I miss when that was the standard resolution size. Anyway, those raptor sounds are nice. Perhaps someone can put them into a mod at some point. I'm surprised they are neither found in Tres nor the films.

No worries team!

Sorry there wasn't more on there. Like I said to Tatu, those video files of the trailers took up the majority of the CD.

A pretty cool timecapsule though. And something I thought the Trespasser community would appreciate.

Don't worry, the CD sits in storage with a bunch of other random JP stuff.

Oh, that brings me to ask, how is the virus doing there? Last I heard the country was still doing well from an early strick travel lockdown, without much need for measures after that.
