Full download This >>zipfile<< (2.55 MB) includes everything: the complete RapidLok6 Handbook with all files and above downloads. For playing the game you will need the dates for the treasure fleet and the silver train. I did not include them as you will find them in the "Pirates! manual" (see Literature section). Keep in mind that "True drive emulation" must be enabled in WinVice when dealing with RapidLok protected G64 files.
