Im not against they making money when they upgrade and make the game compatible with actual systems, but blocking the old version and if i have understand Borodin post not sharing the money with the creators...

UNFORGIVABLE!!!
Ignorance being a bliss I see. As Darth said, GoG always had and has made contracts with the IP holders of each title it puts out. In the case of Darklands, it is one of the many Interplay titles they acquired from Activision a long-long time ago. Not sharing the money with the creators is the same thing that Activision did, when it started re-selling Moo2 on their own distribution systems, so yeah. Interplay went belly up for various reasons, most of the people are either with InXile or with the small remaining part of Interplay. What GoG offers legally is your chance to relieve the golden age of gaming, and get games legally with all bells and whistles for reasonable prices. Oh and ofc support if any problem happens. And no DRM, no Steam connection or the likes. So yeah, the nerve of them trying to preserve games for posterity, right? Even if everyone points out that Abandonware is a grey area, it's still piracy, no matter how you sugarcoat it. And ragewhining about blocking illegal uploads is.. just lol.

GOG did not have anything to do with the removal of the download from here - I doubt they were even aware we had it on Abandonia.
The removal was a standard procedure per our content policy: anything that is sold by a legit source is not abandonware (exception: if the game has been released as freeware, freeware status trumps sold status).
No, it's not something we do for fun. Ensuring Abandonia does not get into any trouble is a rather important principle for us.

After over 100 hours of work i've come up with this:
This ultimate Darklands Excel-Sheet features an occupation progression chart (reach any profession in just 3x5 years), a City tracker (saints, plus premade armor/smith levels), a Potion Maker (see at a glance what you can brew in the city), and a Saints List (handmade, tons of typos from the manual fixed)

Darklands ultimate all-in-one Excel Chart by Wicky

So very happy but tired, now that I'm finished. Happy adventuring!


[edit] updated with a working link

On second thought, and after taking a good look at the files, should be added to the game's 'extras', is very well done, really.
Would be a shame it gets buried here ................

Even if most won't have excel, you can get a free excel file viewer from MS.

When the last part is polished, we can put it into "extras" section... ok?

That last part, which can only be done through adventuring yourself for many weeks, can be described as follows:
One must fall into an underground river, to see which saints can save from suffocation. And get captured by an evil dragon, to check which saints can help in desperate situations, etc. All saints must be found, to write down a clean copy.
this will take me a good while !

Definitely. Or we can put it up right away and replace the file with new version once you are done
