Default Earthsiege 2 [WIP - The fifht Horseman]

Hello, i found the old Earthsiege 2 game at my basement.
Its huge, but i cut the videos and the speech, so its just 16 MB.
The game was made by the Dynamix for sierra, but the dynamix company was closed, so maybe its abandonware?
If yes, i want to share with you all fans of this great mechwarrior game

We could host a image of the entire game in the ISO cellar.
16MB is OK for the main page I assume?

Sorry, still sold.

BTW: 16 MB? I've been playing with ripping out stuff from the CD to reduce size, but never got it that small (my "smallest" was still circa 75 MB or so).

1. note the "buy it" button.

2. it's 4.95$ actually (for the x-com that is...)

3. Developer doesn't matter much but the copyright holder does. In this case if Sierra is the copyright holder then the game might still be protected by ESA (i.e. copyrights).

Oh and we are giving CDAccess as reliable source (again) but it would sure be good to look for another source, since the site seems a bit fishy...

there was a deal made between ESA and Abandonia on which games are allowed to be hosted and which would not allowed to be hosted. UFO is allowed i guess because it is old enough. XCOM still needs to mature a bit more...

also for some games Abandinia might have got the permission from copyright owners to host them.

It's not that simple. Publisher alone doesn't mean that something is protected or not.

UFO is allowed because it's old enough and not sold anymore. X-Com is also old enough, but we do not offer it for download because the game is still sold.

Is it sold anywhere? Is it still supported by the publisher? Is it still within active ESA protection?
The answer to all three questions is: No. And that's why you can download it here.

yes its sold at eBay...

Is earthsiege2 sold anywhere(not stock levels!)? Is it still supported by the publisher? Is it still within active ESA protection?
The answer to all three questions is: No.
Only the ugly site you post, is selling this game...but im very sure, the game will not off-the-shelf right now...so its not selling.
