Used it on mac for years
Wasmore or less abandoned, but then revived on iOS. Wasted years of life on it..

I don't know for the Dos version, but in the Windows version, the keywords asked from the manual were written in plaintext in the .exe. Just use a hex editor of your choice, search for a list of unrelated words (near the text of the Question) and replace them all with the same word. Then enter this word.

What keywords work then?

Love This Game 2016-07-12 4 points

Delta Tao still has a website and is still accepting payments; this is not the same as being "still in business". The OS X version no longer works, even with a valid key (that I paid for) on a PowerPC Mac running appropriately vintage OS X. It generates an error about the registration server being offline. The dozens of emails I've sent to various Delta Tao support addresses go unanswered.

Unfortunately the manual listed doesn't match the DOS game version and only about 10% of the keywords work.

This is really not at all abandonware. Delta Tao Software is still in business and still selling versions of Spaceward Ho for every major platform (desktop & mobile).

Can anyone help me get this to work?
I don't know how to open it in DOSBox. I followed the instructions from HairyPenis here, http://www.myabandonware.com/game/warcraft-ii-tides-of-darkness-2sh, but cant proceed once it says to type in C:\cd w2tod since that is for Warcraft 2.

The game also doesn't work in browser for me, anyone else?
