This file is a !SparkFS archive of Archimedes Elite V1.14, identical to the retail release version, except the program has its password-based protection removed, a new commander file 'Gisburne' has been added for an easier start to the game, and files to support the Falcon joystick interface have been added. It has also been patched by Richard Goodwin to run on all Acorn RISC machines.

It is now possible to emulate Archimedes Elite on a PC, albeit silently, using Archi, or Red Squirrel. It may also work on the opensource Linux/Unix/Windows Arc emulator ArcEm.
