As for these, they are clearly shareware. But even if they weren't, it is not so much out of the ordinary for a third party publisher ...

Most sound cards have only limited Sound Blaster capability, and even that frequently does not work.

Seriously, this is pointless. Why would anyone bother rebooting the system every time to play a game, when one can use DOSBox (or other emulators, if one insists)? Not to mention the audio compatibili ...
