Police Quest 1 & 2

Post by Da_Goat »

I recently downloaded these from a *hush*abandonware*hush........I said shut up!* site, and I was wondering if a shareware version was ever created. If so, I'd like to know where to get 'em so I can put 'em on my site. If it's possible, I'd like them to be on the same page and not have any other games along with them (ok......I said if it's possible, but I'll be happy with 2 sites or something).

If you could link me to an official site in which the creator and/or publisher publicly announce the games as freeware, then I'd be happy to link the full versions.

That's not the point. Did they release it as freeware? If not, then it's illegal.

although I agree that Thunderdog is wrong about the "not selling it anymore" thing.............

That's not entirely true. Take ZZT as an example; it was released for $$$, but later turned freeware by it's creator. So it wasn't "released" as freeware, but the creator/publisher did justify that it was later turned to freeware.

What I mean, was it announced as freeware? Did they actually say: Okay, we're not going to sell Police Quest 1, so you guys can download it for free.

Go to not 'lowwed to do that. No linking to abandonware or warez. Sorry! to get Police Quest 1 and 2.

P.S. the first one you can just play. The second one you need a Password. I need it, I lost my dads book that has it. :shame:

P.S.S. If that Helps any. :suspicious:

It's not abandinware or whatever!!!!!!

Post by Bobo »

That's way too obvious. I know you're trying to help, but I'll make it easy.
It has the same name as this site, but ends with two different letters for the . part. The . part has the same letters as the first letters of the words "Not" and "Later". There.

Hey, Bobo. If you want to link to abandonware, use a PM (Private Message). Also, I already have the full versions of Police Quest 1 & 2. I need the shareware version (which I'm beginning to think never existed) to post on my site.

Oh,

I run an o.k. dos site (with over 100 dos games) and I have never heard of the Sharware version of Police quest 1 or 2. I could make it Shareware by deleting some levels... :huh:

besides *******.** isn't abandonware or *****. It's a buckup site of you games.

That wouldn't make it shareware. It has to be released as shareware. You can't turn King's Quest 7 into shareware by deleting the ending. It doesn't work like that.

they never created shareware versions, freeware, etc. there was one version: the full version. i do not believe it is free for download. you can not buy any of the old AGI or SCI games from sierra (atleast i dont think you can) but they are not freely available for download. the IDSA prevents it.

also, you might want to do a google search for AGI Studio so you could make you own AGI games. i love AGI games and have made a few of my own.
