Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy Demo Disk

Sphinx and the Shadow of Set Demo Disc

This is a list of all the known original releases of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy that were published in optical medium by Eurocom and THQ Inc, including beta and hard-to-find versions.


The internal build date is the compilation timestamp of the main game binary, generated from preprocessor macros and stored as C strings. They are usually shown in the (sometimes inaccessible) Version Info (F10) window.

Debug symbols are files with tabular data that map memory addresses to function (or variable) names, and they can be used to make friendlier crash stack trace screens when something bad happens (or that was their original purpose, but they also make it easier to reverse-engineer the game). Usually, final builds of games are stripped and optimized, but sometimes, due to lack of time or something else, the final release (gold disc) ends up being the last QA build.
