    sorry but i have to edit this, this is not completely legit...
    people just assume since that no one's around to make a profit it's completely legit. I'm going to have to remove the link you have posted. even though the above website is realy good about legality (which i commend them for it) it's not all square if you know what i mean. it also says in the forum rules ( http://www.telltalegames.com/forum/viewthread?thread=28 ) that no links to abandonware are to be posted. I've ran these rules by troy and they all agree. sorry for any frustration this may have caused.

    he was linking to a site which contained abandonware, which isn't allowed. most abandonware sites don't contain all "legal" downloads. the site he posted is relatively good with posting legit software but even asks at the bottom that. if they are mistaken and this shouldn't be posting then they will remove it. once again sorry for any confusion and frustration it brought, i know he meant well so it's not a big deal. :D

    LOL, no it isn't like that.

    telltale can get in trouble if someone posts a link to something illegal, telltale is responsible for everything on its website including the forums. so, if someone posts a link to a website that contains illegal material, it's tell tales ass and they could get in trouble, even though something like that with that particular site is not likely to happen. it's better to be safe then sorry.

    Whatever dude. I think that it was totally wrong to edit this thread. That site is 100% legit and I'm sure that you're loving the site as I write this.

    Anyway, if anyone wants the real link, its on my profile.

    Any hate mail is appretiated.

    sorry man, i did'nt mean to upset you :) . thats just how the rules go.....

    at the bottom of you page you linked it says

    "Disclaimer: http:\\www.********.***does not claim rights to any software on the site. To the best of our knowledge, these titles have been discontinued by their publishers. If you know otherwise, please contact us and we will remove them accordingly. Thank you for your attention."

    a friend of mine writes this
    "Abandonware is not legal.
    If the copyright holder has given their permission to release a game for free, it becomes freeware. The majority of abandonware on the site has not been released by the copyright holder."

    she is compleatly correct in her staitment.
