Disk image download questions

According to the FAQ, contributors with at least 50 points can download one "game" per contribution point.

Some questions:

1. Is there a counter that's visible somewhere to see how many points you've "spent?" I didn't find anything like that in my profile page or in disk image archive itself.

2. Does one "game" mean a single archive of images? So, if I download one 7z file with multiple disks that is one point?

3. Some games have multiple archive files each with a different variation or version, I assume each individual variant downloaded costs one point?

4. If I download the same file twice does that cost one point each time or can you download files that you've already downloaded again for "free?"

Thanks!

Your interpretation is correct. The site will count how many floppy image archives you downloaded and match that number against your earned points. One point per archive, regardless how many files are inside. One download, one point, regardless if it's a different game or another version.

Sorry, this is indeed missing! I'll try to amend this by this weekend.

Also, I seem to have missed your question #4 before. Downloading the same archive twice will not cost twice.
