So I began to make a list of differences between the two systems and stopped when Osric system srd reached a page and a half without even getting past page This had just verified to me osric system srd the game could not really be played side by side with 1e books. But it went deeper than that.
That it had lost osric system srd very Gygaxian in translation. I came at it looking for a verbatim replacement for 1e. It really can't be that.
No retro-clone legally can. And what I was missing was Gary's spirit in the game. It is a game a its own right. Different from the original but close.

It's just an intro.
How is OSRIC different from AD&D
Now I can see that this was really a misunderstanding on my part. Matt was trying to point out no clone can ever replace the originals. For one they are created by different people and won't and indeed can't contain their spirit, the spirit they breathed into the game.

This sort of tied in with other changes in how the company was run: The fact that Gary Gygax was ousted - in a very disgusting manner - from the very company he founded not too long before the osric system srd of 2E certainly didn't endear it to a significant section of the fandom, either.
Having said that, osric system srd is, or at least was, a work-in-progress 2E clone. For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book.
Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high.
