I think that most of these are not Abandonware, but maybe you can hand them out to reviewers. I offer original CDs of the following games, but possess no boxes or manuals.

Anno 1602: Erschaffung einer neuen Welt (GERMAN) (1998)
Dungeons & Dragons. Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor (2 disks) (2001)
Earth 2150: Escape from the Blue Planet (2 disks) (1999)
Jagged Alliance I: Kampf um Metavira (GERMAN) (1995)
Mission Force: Cyber Storm (1996)
Star Trek: Armada (2001)
Verkehrsgigant (Gold Edition) (GERMAN) (2000)
Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness (1995) (twice)

If you have original CDs than you can scan them as well. Some games need to be checked, but Warcraft II is on the site so that scan can be added right away.

As for Jagged Alliance, is that the simply the first JA game, only in German? Either way we will surely need both CD scan and ISO image. How big is the image of JA?

The rest of the games haven't been assigned a status on the Requests board, please post over there one thread per game.

Scanning the CDs is a nice addition (for the games that we can accept or that we already have on site), but only if you have the time.

Thanks!

I'll try to scan the CDs. Warcraft 2 is a special case, as it's got a silver background, I'll see how that looks.

Yes, it's the german version of the first JA game. I'll create an image and see how big it is this evening.

I'm unsure how to correctly post there. Can you give me an example text?

To post a request just make a thread with its exact title on the Requests board, and include either all the other information you may have about it (platform or operating system, year of publication, publishing company, etc.) or, more conveniently, a link to a website with that information, such as MobyGames.

We don't collect physical media on behalf of Abandonia itself, but some user might be interested in your generous offer. If you want to give away your disks you could post a thread on the general discussion board.

Yes, it shouldn't, my mistake. I knew game is on site but I didn't check is it sold or abandoned. Sorry if I cost you some time. CD images will be added however.

If you want I can post those games still without statuses in Requests so their availability may be checked.

I think each of you is using the word "image" with a different meaning.

Scans of disks from games on site but not available for download are accepted. Image files of course aren't.
