Don't argue. Picard simply could not cope with the game's interface, that to speak the truth, was not its highest point.

What does it means, no games that aren't good enough.

Why da hell Kosta doesn't want some really old games?? They can actually improve our rating and drag more people. Yes, they CAN!

So? What's a big deal if game is that old?
The age of a game is unimportant the quality of it is. I don't think you will dissagree with me that there are games out there that are not worth playing because they are too awefull to play (not naming names but they exist). kosta made a concious decision when he set up Abandonia that no games would get on abandonia that were so bad no-one would want to play them anyway just so he could say there where "X" number of games on abandonia. That quality threshold still exists today.

on un unrelated note, in future, when you have questions or do not understand something express yourself more civilized then you have just now. Take your time to write posts and be polite.

Anyhow, I'd deliver the list quicker, but when my hardware crashed it was impossible - two months of delay and most of the games made their way to Abandonia from other sources, as I can see.

Hope you'll find a few you can use, still.

Didn't realized that I was offendive. Nor I wanted to be. Well, too late now.

Kosta told me that he wants no CGA game. What if game is CGA but still very fun?
Is the quality of game measured by interest of the people, palyability or something else?

Or I was making a list until I cleverly hit the refresh button in the reply screen,
after checking the status of 3/4 of the games -/

Go me /-

Anyone interested in 5th-fleet?

I have it but never really played it. Maybe site doesn't have even the archive.

Any admin that can tell me?

There are already some CGA games on the site so a very good CGA game may still be added. Gameplay is the most important. Good gameplay will be followed by popularity so a popular game will have good gameplay (name me one game with which that is not true).

We also need to look at the niche Abandonia is in. Everyone knows that we do not provide emulators for consoles and our speciality is in quality DOS games from the early nineties. This does not mean that any game older or younger then that is out of the question but we add more of the games then others. Other sites specialize in other games. XTC abandonware for instance has a lot of the really old games. The underdogs try to get as many of the forgotten games as possible.

In short, games will be looked at on a case by case basis but not every game will be added to the site simply because it is abandoned.

I don't think anyone has thearchive for this and it is not on the list of games waiting to be reviewed. Maybe you could play it and write a review for it?

Well, maybe we should change the name of the site into abandoned-best

Just kidding. As for playing 5th-fleet, I doub that will happen in next few months. As for the archive, I guess I should say that it is not taken form underdogs, I kind of dislike that.
