Default since when is ascendancy protected?

i thought that logic factory had made ascendancy freeware, because they now earn a crapload of money on the ios version? or did they made is esa protected because of this?

I changed the title of the thread, because threads on this board have a special naming convention.

"ESA protected" is just the result of a set of generic criteria. Where did you find the information that the old DOS version was made freeware? I can't find anything on Logic Factory's website:

Logic Factory has *requested* that we disable the game's downloads because they were re-releasing it for iOS.

ahh, thats a shame ive always downloaded ascendancy from abandonia because it was the best version, but i havnt had to download it for a year or 2. so i guess in that time it has become protected.

i hate it that the mobile version is iphone limited -.- especially with all the uncertainty around apple these days, they lost alot of cases where they were allowed to use the name iphone, and they arnt gaining much popularity either. they would have been better off creating it for android

Why was this moved out of Requests? This information should be on Rejected Requests, for future reference. After the OP's question I searched for a Request thread and found none, and I had no idea that Logic Factory had contacted Abandonia. If this thread were in Rejected Requests, every staff member will be able to find this information in the future.

Yeah they should at least release an additional Android port. If they're making money off the iPhone they'll make more off Android, and it can't be so hard to port if they already did for one mobile platform...

Again, if this info isn't in Requests, nobody can be expected to find it ever again...

I found it, didn't I? Oh yeah, that's right. I'm not admin and I don't need the info...

Hehe, talk to Mr. Horseman if you need Admin talk

I'll have to see what Acendency is. Sounds interesting from what's been said. I wonder if they have a version for Android yet. I have a Kindle and Android Phone.

Heh, okay, go back to your Acendency talks.
