I get a lot of email, but often its the same questions over and over. Not that I might, I'm just very very lazy and it could take weeks before I answer. I hope this page will answer most of your questions.

Q: Can you make me a copy of the Duckman game?

A: No. I don't have the ability to nor the time.

Q: Where can I find a copy of the Duckman game?

A: The best place to find a copy is ebay. A copy turns up every so often. The next best place is The Underdogs, an "abandonware site", use to have Duckman for download. Now they just have a small write up and a link to a place that has it for sale from time to time.  Here is a direct link to their duckman page. Also I know it circles around in pirating groups. No I really don't have any information related to which ones nor how you can get in contact with them. Honest. I'm not kidding in a "wink wink nudge nudge" kind of BS a lot of people try to pull. I don't know anything beyond what people have emailed me from time to time and I tend to ignore it. Also I don't want to give the impression I sit on a high horse. I realize that this game may be near impossible to get outside of a pirated copy.

Q: I downloaded a pirated copy and it doesn't work. What it wrong?

A: As I've been told, you'll have to unzip the file and you'll get a bunch of files called duckman.000 duckman.001 and so on. (use winzip or powerarchiver)
Combined all those files (copy /b duckman.* duckman.rar at the command prompt)
Use winrar (another program to download and install) to uncompressed that file and install.
In the game, turn off voices and music or it will crash
Then you can play Duckman!

Q: I don't understand. Can you please explain further?

A: That is about as simple as I can make it. If you can't get that to work, then you'll either need to find someone who can do it for you or just get a more legal copy somewhere else.

Q: I got the pirated version to work but I really want sound. Can you help me?

A: You are playing a copy that had its sound and music ripped out to make it more download friendly. There is nothing I can do to make those files reappear.

Q: Why doesn't the game work?

A: Assuming that you installed it correctly, there are a few issues that could stop it from working. The biggest issue is that many new cards don't support 320x200 direct X mode. With out that, Duckman will simply not run. Another issue is drivers. Sometimes new drivers on cards that will work sometimes don't work in the mode needed. Mostly because no one checked that mode to see if it worked.

Q: Why don't you update often?

A: There isn't must to say. This isn't a new upcoming hot game. I'm rather lazy as well so I don't want to run a site devote to some hot game that hasn't been released yet. I wanted to say that I found a game that I thought was never released, I played it, I liked it, and here is what I have to say.

Q: Is there a walkthrough?

A: Yes, but I didn't write it and it isn't detailed. I'm not sure who the author is. Its credited to several different people on the net and most of the time it has no credits at all. This is the last FAQ so feel free to quit reading now to avoid spoilers. Here is is:
