The thread is the old thread where games that are not currently available for free will stay and games that are still available need to be moved to the new thread List of Currently Free Games

So to keep this mess out of the new thread.....

Here is what I see in https://www.blizzard.com/en-us/download?show=classic in the "Classic Section" when browsing from the US

Zup, sent me an email the other day and it looks like his locale is different but if I browse here from the US I also see all the games and it looks like the game links are the same for the three games:

It's worth noting (especially since modern browsers seem to be actively dropping FTP support altogether?) that the entire legacy/pre-overhaul 3D Realms website is still accessible at legacy.3dreams.com, with almost all downloads conveniently listed here.

There's also a Major Stryker beta IIRC. The download link is majorstryker_beta_0892.zip

I forgot to mention this in the previous post, but the files that Mr. Flibble and I have mentioned are qualitatively different from what you get if you follow DosFreak's suggestion to get the 3D Realms account and get the games that way (assuming they are the same as what you get in the 3D Realms Anthology or 3D Realms Arcade packages). DosFreak's approach gets you versions bundled with DOSBox while the FTP site provides DOSBox-free releases. Pick your poison.
