I uploaded now 2 old Chicagos on the ftp Server: Chicago 222 German Beta (the oldest Beta of German Language) and Chicago 324 German. They aren't in the Library.

Interesting. What builds are they (the other 10 or so besides the ones you mentioned) and where did you get them?

Also if you could post screenshots it would help.

Thanks.

A quick Google search yielded nothing of value on "Cougar 28" save one BetaWiki article. Apparently this build is just a hackjob and not a real Microsoft beta.

Other resources about Cougar 28 include https://sites.google.com/site/chicagowi ... x/cougar28 and https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E7-h9nc_5IU which shows Cougar running in DOSBox 0.74.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: ...but if this is a fake it is a very good one.
