Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.

When Abandonia was founded it was to collect and present all old games where the copyright protection had been abandoned, hence the term ’abandonware’ and the site name Abandonia.com. We are still doing our best to keep the site open and free and will appreciate your support to help it stay that way.

‐ Thank you from the Abandonia Team

We are trying to make it easy for people in every country to donate. Please let us know how we could make it easier for you.

Please give whatever you can to help us.

Create Required Folders

Submitted by admin on 28. March 2008 - 12:47.

In order to install and setup DOSBox, DFend and games, you have to know how to create and manage folders on your computer. Also you should know how to use WinZip or some other archive utility.

To follow the tutorial I recommend you create same folders as I will, so you can install and setup without worries that you are doing something wrong.

First create a "DOS" folder on your drive C: and make three subfolders: "FILES", "DOWNLOADS" and "CDRIVE". Folder called ISO is optional. Create it only if you are planning to use ISO images of games.

To create folder, you have to open My Computer, C drive and then right click anywhere on empty space and select "New" >> "Folder". The folder will appear and will be highlighted. Just type DOSBox and press enter. (If text is not highlighted, select "New Folder" and press F2 to rename it) After creating DOS folder, double click on it and repeat the process for the other folders.

The folders should look like this:
