I'm wondering if the mentioned CD-ROM version that 'features digitized voices, sound tracks, and animations not found in the original version' is really a PC-CDROM version.

The PC-CDROM versions that I've aquired were basically the same as the PC-floppy versions since they are only featuring digitized voices in certain cutscenes (and are the same in MB size).

I know of the existence of the 3DO CDROM release that does indeed feature additional things like full speech and live actors. But I never came around a PC-CDROM release that has these features.

This is somewhat related to the above game. A friend gave me Sherlock Holmes The case of the Serrated Blade several years ago when it first came out. At the time the disk were 3 1/2 inch floppies. There were 9 disk in all. something happened to disk 8 and I could not reload the game when I replaced my old computer. Rummaging around tonight I found the program and remembered that I had enjoyed it so much that I was hoping that you might tell me where I could get some replacement disk. Perhaps it is now out on CD. I also see here that there was perhaps a followup game or two. Can you tell me how I might obtain copies of those as well. Any help would be appreciated.
