you are most definitely amazing, I have been wanting to play this game for SO many years (I own it, but the Fodor's book was lost many years ago probably in a move), and now I can. THANKS

Question about the old Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego?

I found my "where in the USA is carmen sandiego" game from a LONG time ago (DOS for sure), which came on either two floppies, or two big floppies (the ones that are literally floppy), but could never find the big Fodor's book that came with it, which is really a requirement since they ask ...

*discussion =O

And The thing with Abandonia is they are obviously doing something right if they've yet to get shut down. Maybe it's the fact that they dont have free downloads for all the games, only the ones that have no threat of copyright infringement..

if Abandonware wasn't legal, why is it still a website? It's been around forever and they have (to the best of my knowledge) never been sued for anything relating to "illegal file sharing" or "copyright infringement".

You should try Castles 2, it can be downloaded for free online,legally. And in my opinion it's a lot more interesting/fun then castles 1 (though I liked that one some too). I bet castles 2 will catch on quickly.

Any of you remember Castles and Castles 2?

I mostly played Castles 2 back in the day and remember always attacking the pope and getting owned. Never could beat it. Remembered that the game existed earlier this year, downloaded it, and finally beat it a few times (and had a fun time doing it). To me it seems like an early version of "Age...

X Wing cd version, cant find cd when trying to run

When I install X Wing and try to run it, in dosbox on windows xp, it says it is unnable to find a cd present. Everything is mounted correctly. Apparently this is a common problem for this game. Anyone know a solution?

Looking for an old game..

There's very little I remember about this game aside from that fact that it was a lot of fun and that its been over 10 years since I've played it... It was pretty old, probably Windows 3.1 or DOS, and reminds me , in terms of gameplay, of something like Baldur's Gate. You controlled a group of creat...
