I've been informed by another user that it would be best if I shared the Commandos demos I collected a few months ago. They are for BEL and BTCOD, some multiplayer, some not, possibly in various languages, I haven't really checked. I only made sure they all are different:

Great finds!! Somebody should analyse those demo versions to get more Beta stuff for final if they still work. But yeah really you did a great job getting them!

Put a V12 in a box and watch it race a '97 911 GT1.

Do most of these show up as being empty for you guys?
 
Wait: at least some are 7zip files, not rars.
7z l Commandos_1998-05-12.rar
will show the contents.

Here is another rare demo, in fact its a demo disc by AOL/Smart Saver, its a version known as "Commandos - The Early Battles" this version has 4 missions (why it says it contains 5 on the back of the case is a mystery) and all the tutorial missions and videos rather than just 2 missions like all the other demos, and I believe it was only ever available in the US, as it's by AOL and the readme file on the CD says it's version 1.1. Anyway I created an .iso file of it, I got from eBay accidentally thinking it was the full game, it just came in a regular CD jewel case. it seems you can get these all over eBay, usually sold from the US. I created an ISO of the CD and uploaded it to mediafire if anyone is interested, I couldn't find it anywhere else on the internet so I think this maybe the first time anyone has uploaded it. And I bet i'm not the only person who bought this thinking it was the full game as most listings of it on eBay don't say it's just a demo disc.

 

The missions on this demo are:

A Quiet Blowup

Reverse Engineering

Blind Justice

Chase of the Wolves
All the tutorial missions

 

Here's the link to the ISO:

http://www.mediafire..._EARLY.ISO/file

 

And here are screenshots of the front and back of the CD jewel case and the CD itself:

 

119519-commandos-behind-enemy-lines-wind

119517-commandos-behind-enemy-lines-wind

 

119518-commandos-behind-enemy-lines-wind

 

 

Edit: In the "DEMOS" folder of the CD directory, where it contains a few other demos for games like Tomb Raider etc, there is a folder called "Bonus Commando Mission" and contains and installer, however I was not able to get this to work, so i'm not sure which mission it is, now I understand why it says it contains 5 missions instead of 4.

It's the Bismarck mission. The Comandos.exe in the "Bonus" folder only allows you to play the mission in multiplayer mode.
