Elite is a seminal space trading video game. Both Elite and Elite Plus are freeware, and may be legally downloaded from their author's web site.

Making it work

If you require support for general issues, see the performance guide and FAQ.

Testing

Elite and Elite Plus both work fine in DOSBox.

Saving and Loading

To save and load game data a fix is required for the original version of Elite.

Elfix.zip (ripsaw8080) will enable saving and loading.

A .bat file can be created by adding the following code to a text file and saving as Elite.bat:

@echo Loading ELFIX, an TSR by ripsaw800. Fixes a problem with file attributes.
@ELFIX.COM

@echo Loading ELITE
@ELITE.EXE
