I've been seeing a bunch of posts with people who ask for help and got their games from Abandonware sites. I understand the moderators' stand on this completely. There is too much piracy on the internet. Dosbox is a tool for people who own copies of old games and want to play them on their new systems. Unfortunately abandonware sites always refer to Dosbox to play their pirated games. The moderators on this site to my understanding stay away from helping with pirated software. If Dosbox is considered helping people with such software then someone would think that Dosbox is aiding and abetting in a crime so they would through legal means to close down and outlaw Dosbox. I say this when you ask for help in a game if you have a legittement copy, these people will help greatly. BUT if you have abandonware please go to the site where you got it from and talk to them. These people here want to stick to the law and keep themselves safe.
