SIIA wants to know your address.
They are backups of my originals, you see...
Just tried Terminator: Future Shock, says i need the CD.
So not everything works flawless.
most interesting I just went threw the updates list and there are more then "few" games there that are NOT consider abandoned ware hell some them can bought digital . there other games that I know are that abandoned ware I had as kid and can no longer find my copies, cause I have no clue where all my floppy games disk went
my eye fell out when I say BattleTech - The Crescent Hawk's Inception and few other games, the game dont work though >>
My OCD is saying those racks need cleaning badly. I mean look at the dust built up on those grills.
I can even picture what the internals look like. That church must be one dusty place.
Remember when people got sad when some ROM sites closed down? Well, guess where you can still find pretty much every ROM in existence...
Not sure how exactly the Internet Archive is able to dodge those DMCAs, but somehow it does. Or maybe the likes of Nintendo haven't gotten angry enough at them yet... We'll see.
EDIT: For freaking out IT use Teamviewer and open the page on your rig at home.
(Just joking. Depending on policy this may get you fired!)
yah, I not complaining my only complaint is most the games I tried to play dont work, it like the dosbox is not configured right, or maybe it firefox and maybe it blocking cookies or something
There alot games there I saw that I had and should still have if I find out where they all went. and if doxbox actual worked I could get some that nostalgia out my system.
@tsunami231 It's just that they're not configured correctly on the site. For example the CD ISO is not mounted when they try and launch the game. They just threw this together without actually knowing exactly what they're doing.
These games work just fine (and much better) when you run them locally in native DOSBox. And it's probably better to use something like DOSBox-ECE or DOSBox-X instead of vanilla DOSBox.
Try searching for the title to see if it has more than 1 copy. A couple of games i tried playing didnt work but under another listing they would play without a problem.
Glad to see this posted, but it's not really news. This feature has been part of their site for many years.
archive.org archives the entire internet and every version of every page in the history of man kind, check out the early googles.
Yeah same here in Vivaldi trying out Decent I or II they play like a fractured flicker from the 1800's
