A humble but scary request
 
Reloaded.org has a ton of dead game links; is there any way to fix that? :ph34r:

About as much as a way to fix things for Abandonia... both are sister sites which split years ago to separate Freeware games and "Abandonware" games - latter an outdated term for ancient commercial Ms-Dos games, which is probably all but dead by today. When things have been lot, lot more active, and Abandonia still had an active site owner - who abandoned both sites and passed them to some commercial company (what was it again, Studentis?) to keep things running, somehow. Kind of ironic, actually.
Those times have mostly passed now, I'm afraid.

I've been out of the loop for a few years; what's the status on Abandonia presently? I heard about the password scandal but that was about it. Also saw the latest AB Times (good stuff).

Hey there

Reloaded is a different site from Abandonia. Posting here does not alert Reloaded staff about anything. I'm admin on Reloaded, and I just saw this by chance. It's better to post on the Reloaded forums HERE about anything Reloaded-related.

The difference between the 2 sites is that Reloaded is a site dedicated to freeware. Abandonia is supposed to be for abandonware, but they have sold games and freeware games as well.


I'm working on fixing dead links. There is a problem currently with the home page, and I've contacted the site owners about it.
