Hi Damien.

I'm afraid I disagree with your motive not to host the games because they are buggy.


They are abandonware, and you are not the initial programmer therefore are not responsable for the games whatever remakes you come up with later, and by the fact that the games are abandonware people will know they will not be perfect.

That being said though, the games are worth playing, I actualy have self destruct perminantly on my machine as one of my stand in games, sinse while it's got it's problems it's also very playable and has good atmosphere despite yes having bugs.

Therefore I would think it a shame if people were denied playing these.

yes, remakes would be better, and I'll look forward to those, but that has nothing to do with the original.

heck, Philip bennifall's old games are abandonware and while he's doing a better job now and has even considdered remakes of tj and showdown he doesn't have an issue of tom hosting the games whatever plans he has.

I really myself don't see the issue, I've played several very good abandonware titles from pc prince of persia to fallthru and have no complaints even when they do come up with odd bug.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,
I would rather they were not hosted. They are incredibly buggy and they are being redone anyway. I am in the process of redoing Giftanum as an open source project, I plan to redo and revamp Danger City (maybe call it something else, add new sounds and fighting music and the like), etc. It looks like someone else has taken it upon themselves to make a boxing game, so not sure whether I should redo a similar Savage Gamut.
Regards,
Damien.

Thanks for letting me know.

Perhaps the games can be hosted elsewhere?

Hi Dark,
I am no longer hosting Danger City, Self Destruct, Savage Gamut or any of the older games. I was planning to do a revamp of Danger City and the Savage Gamut. However looks like someone is already working on another boxing game, so looks like it may be just the Danger City revamp then.
Regards,
Damien.

Hi.

this is really to damien, but anyone else is free to chime in too.

As I've been cleaning up the database recently and removing old entries, I've noticed that the older abandonware titles previously hosted by x site (and presumably on Damien's todo list for eventual reworking), are no longer available from there.

If Damien's not planning to rejigger those games, fair enough, but if tom, damien or someone else is hosting them I'd appreciate knowing so that I can give their pages current download links and make them available to people.

I know some people have stuck them on dropbox, however I'm always concerned at those sorts of options sinse it's not often clear how long such things will be up and available and it's most irritating to have someone say "it'll be on dropbox" only for the link to go dead a couple of weeks later.

so some confirmation from Damien regarding self destruct, danger city, last crusade and the savage gambit (I think that was all of them), would be welcome indeed.

Actually with all the talk of boxing I wouldn't mind giving savage gambit another go myself to have an idea what greymatters' improvements will be like.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
