Hey guys,


Is abandonia.com a legit website?  It has some old C64 games I would really like to play again, like Auto Duel and Legacy of the Ancients.  I don't want to catch PC herpes, though!


Thanks.

    Thanks man.  Any idea, do the game downloads come with a C64 emulator and instruction docs or anything?

    use Vitustotal, click on "URL' and type in the website address, then Scan It.  You can even upload and scan files.

    OK, thanks Gains.


    I've never used a C64 emulator before.  Is there a good one?  How do you load games once you open the emulator?

    Legit but have had problems with a couple games before,example an old Horse racing game i liked would not work for long always crashing.MOST games before and present needed patches and unlikely any of these come with those patches.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Dosbox makes almost all of them work for me at least. Sometimes there are issues with sound, but I've always found a fix thus far. It does take a bit of finagling at times.

    I've downloaded games from them.  Problem is some of the 90's games require other programs to actually get the games working.  You can just install and go, they require some dicking around to work.  They all require dos memory.

    abandonia been around for a long time.  Whenever they get any copyright issues they immediately take the game off their sight.  I remember that game castles went into copyright for some reason and they had to drop it.  Every once in a while some company buys the copyrights to those old games hoping to make a dollar but thats very rare.
    Are you onto something or just on something?
