The last version of The Oregon Trail I played had the farmer as the biggest multiplier (pre-teacher) and had graphical hunting. This was on the Apple II.

Except for the ability to trade (and particularly to the Indian river guides) does clothing serve any particular purpose?

My apologies, I could have sworn you could pick up heavier clothing even in the version that came out oh so long ago. –  James Oct 5 '12 at 16:55
@James yeah, I also recall trying to complete it (as banker, just testing) without any clothes at all and don't remember any serious consequences. –  Matthew Oct 5 '12 at 16:56
Bartering/guides is the only purpose I remember, but that was a long time ago and I couldn't find an authoritative source. –  PeterL Oct 5 '12 at 17:06
This should be tagged with the name of the game. Is the game actually called "The Oregon Trail" or does it have a subtitle or something? –  murgatroid99 Oct 5 '12 at 17:51
@murgatroid99 Yeah it should, and according to the wikipedia article it is just 'The Oregon Trail' –  James Oct 5 '12 at 17:57
