Ah, yes, the meat 'n tatters of the site. Here you can find a boatload of Chex Quest related downloads, including the original game in BIN and CUE format, and the sequel as its original installation file. Browse around and feel free to download or ask for help!
NOTE: If you downloaded any version of Chex Quest by ScifienceNetworks at Tucows, either the Mac OS X or Windows version at Version Tracker, or any other location with the "scifience" version, I advise that you delete that version and re-download Chex Quest as one of the versions below (I personally recommend the Chex Quest 3 compilation). The "scifience" version uses an alternate version of Chex Quest found on the Chex Quest CD with the file name "DOOM.WAD" that crashes the provided version of Doom Legacy v1.42 before E1M5: Caverns of Bazoik.

This is the full Chex Quest CD in BIN and CUE format. It has been compressed and split up into twenty parts. To extract the BIN and CUE files, follow these steps:
You're basically done. You can extract the contents of the BIN file to a folder with a program like IsoBuster and run setup.exe that way (it doesn't have to be burned to a CD). Or, you can burn the image to a blank CD. You can even use an image mounting program like DAEMON Tools to run the image like a CD on your computer!
