Hello, my fellow Abandonians.

When I read the FAQ, I'm told that the ESA icon means that the game in question is not available for download. Why, then, do uploaders of such games often end their reviews with words along the line of "Happy downloading!"? Not to mention, of course, the even more pressing question of why the games are even listed on this site in the first place?

Just curious (and unhappy that Ultima Underworld II is ESA protected* ),
Some of the games used to be available for download, but ESA asked us to remove the downloads, so we did. But you're right, it would probably make sense to get rid of the download references in the reviews.

You tried to access the address http://dl.abandonia.com/gamesyms/3956edb24...71/Dig%20It.zip, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.
I clicked that link and I got a 404. Probably because of that no direct-linking system. However I tried DLing it and it worked. I was using Firefox.
