Please don't use many caps as it it's very irritating and don't use stuff like hell and so.

HOTU used to be a great site for abandonware before ESA/IDSA. It had everything, man...

I know, it's also slow. It takes me about 2 minutes to load a page of just the game's names (all text), I can't see any of their screenshots and I have to turn my firewall off when I want to download anything :angry: Unfortunately though, it's the only way to get some of the larger games out there.

I just had to say this in Underdogs defence. (She is a really nice person when you get to know her).

She tries to keep her site running to the best of her effort, but some restrictions had to be made along the way.

The most important is the Ban rule:
You will ONLY get banned if you do MULTIPLE downloads (also known as leeching)... We pay a serious amout of money for our bandwith usage, and she has over 10 times more games. This means she has an extremely high traffic, lot of strain on her server, and a HUGE bill to pay every month. If she was to allow people to download more than one file at a time, her bill would grow to about 10-15 times bigger than it is at the moment.


When you have a big site, you have to make strict rules.

HOTU is still THE ultimate source for abandonware out on the net.
