Hi Damien,
I've had very much the same problems you have. Since hosting all of
Dan's games I've also been  trying to get the rights to the games so I
can port them to C++ and produce Mac OS and Linux versions. So far no
Regarding obtaining the rights to produce versions of various abandoned
games it sounds like you and I basically have the same idea, but for
completely different reasons. For myself I had hoped to get the rights
for Super Deecout, Chainlink, Search Party, etc to begin my Mac/Linux
collection. There are a number of abandoned games such as Giftenum that
could easily be converted to C++, and then ported to Mac OS and Linux
fairly easily. This is pretty much what I've planned to do for a while,
and it seams you now hold the copyrights for most of the abandonware out
there. Perhaps we could figure out some limited partnership to help each
other convert these games to C++ and produce cross-platform versions. We
might even decide to open them up as open source projects since I don't
believe you or I were planning on producing commercial versions of these
games anyway.
