Finally I finished a new design for the Super Nintendo section
. The colour scheme changed to different shades of green instead of the blue ones before. Moreover, the games are now either accesible by genre or by first letter or by a direct list. As a bonus, I updated all Emulators to the newest version and added ZSNES for Linux. There could be some mistakes left, it would be nice if you told me!
Aah, it's great to know we have some educated and active visitors! Chris helped my lousy memory and told me the name of the game I couldn't remember two days ago. The review on 3D Cyberpuck has been adjusted accordingly. Thanks!
Not quite as much today, but a great game indeed: 3D Cyberpuck
Woohoo! I did it! I beat my own record in review length of 1771 words on Master of Orion! The new standard is 1784 words now. Eat that, you wannabe-webmasters and pseudo game-freaks! Well ok, this sounds as if writing a long review was the point of this update. I can assure you it wasn't. It's just that Death Gate
is one of my favourite games ever, and I kept writing and writing. And suddenly, the review looked quite long to me..... Nice side effect ;)
This is also the first time I've uploaded a game bigger than 10 MB. General rule on this site is 'nothing bigger than 10 MB unless it's genious'. Well, I guess you get the picture...
Is my trial over at last? Seems so - and I'm relieved! Jeff
has taken over the apps section
and he made an excellent start by adding two programs with a great write-ups and a screenshot. This time, it should be for real!
A reminder: If you sign up for our newsletter, you'll receive reports about our updates regularly. This is an extra service which we're providing beside all the main work on the site. It's very annoying to have thousands of e-mails bounced back when sending one out though! So please try to ensure your account is able to receive our newsletter. If our e-mail is bounced back with the message 'user unknown' or similar, we'll delete you from our database immediately, if it's 'mailbox full', we'll give you one more chance. But if this happens again next time, we'll also unsubscribe you! Please understand that we just don't have the resources to deliver everything to a database full of dead addresses, please do us a favour and help us by keeping everything up-to-date on your side.
For real this time: the apps section is open! And dead again. Huh? It just didn't work out with the new section webmaster for reasons I don't want to go deeper into, so I threw up two apps myself to demonstrate how this section should look if anyone ever takes care of it. Enjoy these two programs, but that was it from my side.
Today marks the reopening of the apps section! We have a new crew member taking care of it: Momo
. Please contact him in regards to this section if there is anything. For a start, he has added 5 apps, each with a real description and a screenshot - not like in the crappy old apps section :)
Back-to-back update, as usual. We've done that for more than five years now, never missed an update, not a single day! Anyway, thanks to johann67 for today's game. It belongs to the same series as Pool 'm Up and it's called Roll 'm Up
Finally, the Dregenrocks Special
is finished! Sorry, Dregen, that was long overdue. All check it out now, CtK must be one of the best games on the whole site!
Yay! Finally a review by me again, and it's also something special for the special section, another home-made game called 'Ugh'
. So head over there right now and give it a try ;).
Apps = gone at last.
I tidied up the SNES section
. Four of the games are now available again: Shadowrun, Super Offroad, WWF Raw and True Lies. Currently, the remaining ones are put "on hold" because of the IDSA warning.
If you're reading this, it means transfering the domain to our new server has taken effect. Yes, that right - we've switched to another server to ensure full speed and availability even with growing visitor counts!
We also have some additions: The Temple of Darkness
(thanks to Marvin) and Snake Attack
(thanks to Jouni and Marvin) in the minicomics section. Courage
and The Motion Picture
make the Star collection complete.
Now let's see if the other crewmembers will have something for you again in the future...
This is Mr Creosote talking to you from the grave... I added a game
for the first time for some months. Ironically, I did it right after my looooooong holidays have ended. Typical!
I've moved to another town, but I don't have a phone line at home yet. That is why I can't answer my e-mails and forum posts as promptly as usual. Please only e-mail me if it's really important and stay patient - I assure you I'm doing my best to answer as quickly as possible! Until I get 'fully functional' again, please contact Adhoc or Tapuak if there is anything.
Oh well, all this server stuff is taking way to long! I thought we should stall the site until the move, but now it's almost one month since the last update - intolerable! So I'm bringing you two comics today which I've scanned some weeks ago, but held them back: The Menace of Trap-Jaw and The Magic Stealer
. The first one is good, the second one genious - even non-Masters fans should check it out!
Due to a cease & desist letter from the IDSA and the server going mad shortly thereafter, many downloads don't work. Don't mail us about broken links or a 'forbidden' message because we are aware of them!
For more information, check out our news archive
. Everything which was added after August, 8th is definitely up! So are the comics and all the specials. For the other files: it's always worth trying to click the download link, but don't complain if it doesn't work.
Just for the sake of completion: Der Planer Gold
. Third game of this kind, and again nothing much has changed...
A small update by me today: Der Planer Extra
. An addon to the original game with new missions and some minor new features, still only in German, sorry folks...
Still waiting for the new server, so I decided to bring you another update before the move. I added a new special about a neat game called Pudgy
. Check it out! I'm sure Spazz (the programmer) will be happy about every player.
Argh! All the downloads are gone. And the worst thing about it: we have no idea how this happened! The directory on the server just disappeared :( The server really seems completely screwed. Not only the downloads, our e-mail-accounts also don't work half of the time! So if you sent us something which was bounced back, just try again. About the downloads: we'll do our best to bring them back, but we'll move to another server in a few days anyway, so the question is if it's worth uploading it all again.
Conclusion: Don't mail us about broken links!
A rarity: Ever seen a racing game without any scrolling? Super Off Road
! Note: The download of this single game works!
Ok, from now on, there are downloadable apps again. No, wait! Only one
downloadable application! The programmer of CheatBook-DataBase 2001 v3.0
asked my if we could publish his program and since it's a really great system, I've of course agreed :) So check it out!
That goes also for any other works btw: we'll gladly publish them if they serve any purpose or are just funny or whatever ;)
Another little Freeware game which surely many of you won´t know: Blobby Volleyball
, a somewhat different volleyball game... ;)
Finally I translated Johann67's review on Secret of Mana
into German. Not very interesting for English speaking visitors, I know... ;)
Ok, enough is enough! We're doing our best to keep you up-to-date about the IDSA-thingy, but still the questions, demandings and complaints keep pouring in! So here is how we'll act from now on:
-We expect you to read this and the older pieces of news about this topic
-If you don't and ask us why you can't download something, we'll simply reply with read the news
-If you keep asking questions after this, we won't reply anymore
If you feel you have a valid remark or question, you can of course contact us and we'll gladly reply.
After a long time (I know, I know...) I´m adding a new game. It´s freeware, so no thoughts about IDSA are required. The game is Pool 'm Up
, a promotion game for the Dutch (?) beer brand Dommelsch. A really nice, but not overly realistic pool simulation.
Apropos IDSA: Some links, especially the apps, still don´t work because of the letter from the IDSA. So please refrain from complaining about non-functioning downloads...
No reaction from the IDSA, so we've begun readding the downloads. Approximately half of the games are up again - the ones of which we're sure that they aren't copyrighted by an IDSA member. More will be readded gradually when we've cleared some cases in which were not sure so far.
e-mails we can't use right now:
"I tried to download one of your game but I got this f*ck'n message: You do not have permission to access the requested file on this server. What the f*ck is that sh*t?!?!?! I really want this game so tell me what to do fast!"
"Fuck u ur site is shit and the game i unziped with winRAR doesnt work u mother fuckin whore!!!!!!"
"Why do I get this 'notice' page when I click the download link?"
We are also aware that the 'download' button leading to the IDSA notice could be interpreted as an unfair promise. But this is only a temporary solution.
As you might have read in the forum, we received a cease & desist e-mail from the IDSA in which they demanded the downloads to be taken down. We followed that request of course. But there is no way they can shut down the whole site! Their members only own a part of the games' copyrights, so we've asked them for a list what they claim rights for.
If you feel like protesting, feel free to drop them a line to firstname.lastname@example.org
. But please
keep it mannered! Swearing and insults will only hurt us in this case.
So remember: None of the software downloads work at the moment!
Grand Reopening! We're back and more evil than ever! Maybe you noticed the minor changes compared to our former design. In case you don't, have a look at the screenshot of our old welcome page
. We hope you like the new look.
But that's not the only change! The apps section
is currently completely redone. It will at least features a short desription of every program! We couldn't implement the whole collection though, but I promise we'll bring it all back gradually.
The game count has also been increased. johann67 contributed Secret of Mana, Secret of Mana 2 and Sunset Riders
while our regular crew was working on this new site!
And as if that wasn't enough, we also have four new comics up for download: The Hordes of Hordak
, He-Man meets Ram-Man, The Terror of Tri Klops
and Energy Zoids
! The general descriptions of the series have also been rewritten and the Minicomics part has been split up into series.
Last but not least, please read our new editorial
. We'll have new comments and thoughts there from time to time whenever we have the urge to say something.
Please post any comments or questions you might have in the forum
Funny sidenote: during the downtime, we broke through the barrier of 1000 daily visitors for the first time in the site's history! Thanks a lot for your support!
The master of cheats himself, Johann67, reviewed the extraordinary Super Nintendo game Actraiser
Today's addition Super Metroid
has been contributed by Little Boy. A rating of 18 points should be worth a look!
A good start into the new month! With.... a comic: The Cosmic Key
. A true gem!
Hi everybody! Do you still know what a 'game' is? I mean, after all those comics... Anyway, be sure to check Proliferation
out - it's one of my favourite games!
Sad news: another quality site got a cease & desist letter from the IDSA: Wasted Oldies
! Why? No idea! It's always the quality sites which get shut down it seems. And this time it's even a relatively young site without too many visitors! Will they every stop?
I can stop you, Creo :P. Have you missed me? Yes? I thought so ;). Ok, a new game for you: NASCAR Racing
Guess what - a new comic: The Fastest Draw in the Universe!
The poll is over - you can read all about the final decision in the forum!
I think it's better to leave the last news post up to give you a better overview...
Today Dregenrocls contributed Shadowrun
for SNES. Finally you can play your RPGs without losing this immense dice!
And another new comic: The Power of... Point Dread
. And again there's something new about it: I've decided to 'watermark' the scans with the site's URL. That is because I'm really
pissed with some people (Germans of course...) who think they can just take my scans and put them up without any
mention of me or my site! No appreciation of my work >:(
So here's what you can do if you want to use my scans: feel free to take them, but please inform me about it and credit me on your site. That's all I want - is it really that
Again, a new comic: The Getaway
. Following a suggestion which has come up in the forum, I've linked the pages together with html pages for better viewing and I've also named the files a bit differently to allow the usage of an image viewer.
Today I have a very special comic for you, if you understand English: Monstroid
. One of the very best superhero stories I ever read, and I read a lot! (sorry, Adhoc, couldn't resist ;)
Today I have a very special game for you, if you understand German: Der Planer
. One of the very best business sims I ever played, and I played a lot!
Don't forget to vote at our poll!
Long time, no see. We have a new poll! It's about the portal for the server I've been working on. We need a name for the server. Read all about it in the forum!
Today´s game is an alternative to the many racing games:Destruction Derby
. Destroy other cars at your liking and show them: You´re the King of the Road!
Finally I got a new script for the Game of the Day
! Yotz was involved in this solution, but my lawyers gave me the advice I shouldn't specify how and I shouldn't thank him in public because this could be the basis for financial demands from him. Anyway, now I don't have to add new entries to the database all the time anymore
I have a game for you I haven´t seen on any other AW site before:Airline
. A nice business simulation, unfortunately only in German. That´s what I call 'original content' ;)
Today I added a map editor for Global Conquest
. Big thanks go out to Koivu!
I bet you were all waiting for one game since this site started! Well, Gesh reviewed it now: Syndicate
The second part of Populous: Populous 2
. Even better than the first one. But look for yourself!
Today I have another true classic for you: Populous
by Bullfrog. Be sure not to miss this one!
It was time for a spring cleaning! I went through the links
, removed the dead ones and changed some descriptions to an up-to-date version. The Agames search box is gone as is this site. Then I added some points to the FAQ
. Last but not least you should check out the Spam Club
for some neat new features!
Today I proudly present a masterpiece of modern literature: Lifetime II
Gesh makes his comeback with Cool Spot
He has also changed his e-mail address to email@example.com.
One note about the newsletter: I sent one out today (7 p.m. GMT). If you subscribed, but didn't receive it, you'll have to sign up again because we lost your subscription because of the hacking attack.
Finally a new game by me, Adhoc: Eishockey Manager
Everything should be working again now. If you encounter broken links or anything else which isn´t working properly please drop us an e-mail so we can fix it.
Already up: Amiga, SNES, PC-games, documents, extras, He-Man
Currently uploading: Apps
Already up: Amiga, SNES, PC-games
Still down: Apps
Currently uploading: He-Man
Still more or less the same... Just wanted to give you a quick status report: Amiga- and SNES sections are fully up. You can also try to download PC games, but that just depends on your luck if it works or not. No apps or comics so far. Still way to go!
*%$! This goes too far! Some idiot hacked our server! I have no idea WHY or WHO. But it happened! What did you gain from this, unknown lamer? TGOD, 21st Century Oldies, TUOL and a few other sites all went down because of this. The server's hd had to be formatted. So we lost all the data! That means we have to upload everything again! So no download is working right now! What you're looking at is the raw site. No specials. And the worst thing: I was of course stupid enough not to make a backup copy of the forum. So I have to install it again - all the posts are lost, you all have to register again :( I hope you're satisfied now, Mr Hacker >:(
*%$! What's going on here? First the whole database of the download script disappears. I go offline to fix it. An hour and a half later I want to upload the new database. And what do I find? The server is down
! Fortunately this was only for five minutes this time. Phew... Anyway, all the downloads should now work again. Sorry for all the inconvenience!
I've done and uploaded some more smilies for the Spam Club
. More to come!
We're back online! It was a hard struggle though. Read all about it in the Spam Club
. I'll keep yesterday's news here for another day. This post isn't an update? Considering how many hours I've spent to get the server back online, I'd say this was the biggest
update in the site's history!
Today a rare weekday´s update by me, adhoc, as even Mr C needs some time to hang off ;). The new game is Speed Haste
IMPORTANT: I´ve once again
given in and increased the max. number of users for the downloads at the risk of the server becoming sluggish. If you abuse it, it´ll be your own disadvantage! So I still want to ask you to restrict your downloading to one
file simultaneously. Thank you.
IMPORTANT: Many people have a hard time downloading something at the moment! The error message is 'Login Incorrect'. I can assure you the file is
there and you don't
need a login! The reason for this is too many ongoing transfers. For the sake of fairness, I'd like to ask you all to restrict your downloading to only one file transfer at the same time! And please
disable segmented downloading! This is killing the server! I don't want to enforce this with any 'punishments' or threats. But please
think about all the other people out there and give them a chance to get what they've been looking for. Thank you.
Once again: Mozilla Milestone 7, 8 and 9
At last the apps section sees a good
addition again! After much useless/new crap, I'm proud to present you DOS 2.1
. Yep, the original IBM DOS! Credits go out to Rebel Terry :)
Today I proudly present a very
special game. Available on no
other Abandonware site! The cult game of a whole generation: Catch the Kreis
Continuing yesterday´s update I, adhoc, present you: Premier Manager 3
Just wanted to tell you I'm back - everything will return to normal again! Mr Creosote
Today I, adhoc, have a new game for the sports category: Premier Manager 2
for you. Obviously the weekend has become my domain :P
I'll be away on the weekend. adhoc will take care of the updates. But I won't be able to answer my e-mails of course. If I'm very
lucky, I might be able to pop in at the Spam Club
once. But don't count on that. If there's something really urgent, mail Adhoc. See you on Monday!
Today I have 3D Floor Planner
I'll be away on the weekend. adhoc will take care of the updates. But I won't be able to answer my e-mails of course. If I'm very
lucky, I might be able to pop in at the Spam Club
once. But don't count on that. If there's something really urgent, mail Adhoc. See you on Monday!
To celebrate the mass of page views in the Spam Club
yesterday (more than 1000!), I've added 11 new smilies for all you crazy guys to use.
There are also two new links
Wow! The number of posts in the Spam Club
last night is really impressive :) Keep that up!
And today I even added a game! One if the discussions
in the Spam Club
inspired me to review Dune
Your master is back! And look what he brings you today: Speaker.drv
Today you also have to bear with me, adhoc. For compensation I bring you another simulation: Red Baron
Due to the known reasons today´s update is again by me, adhoc. I´ll present you a new game as well: Task Force 1942
. A true war simulation classic, go check it out!
I'm back. First I want to thank adhoc for jumping in yesterday. It's a great insurance to have reliable people as a 'backup' :) Then I'd like to explain what prevented me from updating yesterday: the cat I grew up with died of cancer. I wasn't able to do anything
, not even getting a clear thought. And I'm still quite handicapped because of that. So don't expect such big updates from me in the next time.
Today I'd like to tell you about an experiment I started two days ago. I added Hero Quest
, but I deleted the (already written) review from the page before uploading it. Then I especially pointed at the great review (which wasn't there) in the news. Now this state has been up for two full days. And nobody
complained about it! This is really sad and once again proves you all don't care about reviews :( The review is of course up now...
Hi folks! Due to personal reasons Mr Creosote can´t update today so here I am, the man with the ever flawless updates: ADHOC! I also brought you a new game:Conflict: Middle East Political Simulator
. Have fun!
After a long time of inactivity, the Amiga section has seen a change again: Hero Quest
. As usual with an ultra-long and mega-comprehensive review for you to read!
And now for something completely different: the update. It's so great and groundbreaking that you'll certainly all storm the site to download it! Get ready for the biggest change in your life! It's RAR 3.01
For some unknown reason, the screenshot of the game of the day wasn't displayed. Anyway, it was (and still is) Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy which still needs a review btw...
The next one: Eternam
I added a poll. Please vote!
I still need a replacement-review for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
I bet you were already waiting for the next 'new' game. And here it is: Face Off!
And please use the game store search box on the right!
And another of Vohaul's reviews is gone: Legend of Kyrandia 2
. I also need a new review on Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
, but since I haven't read the book, I can't really get into the game. Can anyone help out?
I also added the copy protection codes for the German version of Stronghold
SiL (thanks ;) notified me of a bug in Word which prevents some .rtf-files to be displayed correctly. He converted the manual of Legend
to raw text because of that and it's now up.
Today I replaced one of Vohaul's reviews (Legend of Kyrandia
) with one written by me because Vohaul's reviews suck badly :P Err ok, in fact I just can't tell you the real reason yet...
adhoc added Stunts
- he's still without a flawless self-update :P
Especially for the poor Windows ME users out there, Tapuak uploaded ZSNES for Windows
today. The DOS version of this emulator has also been replaced by the current version.
The same person as yesterday uploaded even more! There are some huge files, and so far I've only managed to activate one of them: Turbo Prolog 2.0
. More to come!
Returned from work late, did some trading with action figures. Not much time left to update. ASCII Picture 1.1
Day 1 after the anniversary. For some reason I didn't feel like updating today at all :( This is the first time I have this feeling since more than 100 day ago. Somehow I feel I have achieved everything! One year old, 100 games, No. 1 in apps, comics, masses of visitors, a big forum, my own server, more than 100 updates in a row... From now on I can just be repeating myself, no matter what I do :(
Fortunately, Elwood donated one of his games from his deceased site: Falcon Beertender
Birthday! The Good Old Days is now one
year old! I started it on February, 26th 2000 with four games and 16 apps. The games were Balance of Power - The 1990 Edition
, Battle Bugs
, Brutal Sports Football
and Chaos Engine
. They all had quite the same (long) reviews as today (I only revised two of them once) and the same screenshots. The apps were all unreviewed and only up because they're 'useful'. No single of them had a real historical value. The site's design was also completely different. You can see some screenshots here
To celebrate this anniversary, I've added the hundredth
game today: Stunt Island
. This was in fact one of the games I planned to review since I started the site. But I never did it. Even today (with all my 'routine' ;) it was still pretty hard and tricky to write about it. Read the review to learn why.
I've also implemented a new feature: the Game of the Day
! As the name implies, another game will be presented on the main page every day. But only the site's 'underdogs' will move there, not the ones which are downloaded in masses anyway. I hope you enjoy it.
All congratulations can be done it the Spam Club
Today's additions are two versions of LapLink
I consider the case Forsakenware
closed. Why? Well, try to come here via one of their links ;)
Capitalist adhoc added Ports of Call
Please click the 'send' button above! If you have any questions about the background, please read the old news or ask me.
Now we're at 'more than 100 updates in a row' ;)
After The Keep went down because of exactly this, I removed three programming languages from the apps section.
But I also added five new ones, so the app count even rose: WinAMP 0.2a, WinAMP 1.10, WinAMP 1.20
, Netscape 1.0 and Netscape 2.02
Lane still doesn't want to give in. That is why I added this form above. Please support me!
Tata! Here it is! Update No. 100! Woohoo! It's brought to you by Tapuak who has done a lot of brawling in Super Street Fighter 2
On a sad note, Lane, the webmaster of a search list, has insulted me and some other people in his news. I politely asked him to remove my site from his listing. He refused to do that and continued to insult me. This behaviour is completely unacceptable, especially since he just lists sites without asking for permission first. And as if that wasn't enough, he doesn't even leave the choice to the webmasters! I can only advice every webmaster and visitor to protest! Here's his e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Now at last here it is: Ugh!
Thanks to Cillmatic for reminding me of it :)
Because of one silly flame war (the follow-up of the logged 'discussion, I didn't have the time to finish
the update I wanted to do. Instead, I'll give you VidPlay 3
Tapuak reviewed Z
today and he also typed the manual in
Here's my reason to quit the RoA: discussion log
Mega update coming soon.....NOW!
adhoc added Championship Manager 93
I removed all the unnecessary buttons on the right. The apps have moved to 'PC'.
Tapuak changed his e-mail address to email@example.com.
I wrote a FAQ
I've listed the people I want to thank
I added a small button on the right. It's from Allclicks, so if you want to support me, please click it!
I've installed a download script to protect the links from being stolen. It hides the real location of the
file to a certain extent and it let's me change the name of the directory it points to quickly without having
to change all the links. The downloads are all ftp now to ensure that you get a working file.
adhoc changed his e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everything is up and running: the domain, the forum and all the downloads!
And as if that wasn't enough, I also have a new feature for you: the
! It's a sub-page of the contribute section. If you
want to send us files, do it there.
Everything in the apps section from # to G is up!
The domain works for me now but I'll keep the cjb.net address at the rings for another day just to be on the
Now that the domain is up, you can expect new cool features starting tomorrow!
After a lot of uploading, the PC-section is now fully up! So everything's working now apart from
the apps section.
I can proudly announce today, that the sections Amiga, SNES and He-Man are fully up now! There are still
some download files missing in the PC section, but I'm working on it.
The domain has been transfered, but it'll take one or two more days until it takes effect everywhere. So
it is possible to access the site via gooddays.org with a bit of luck, but I'll still recomment
goodolddays.cjb.net until it's really safe.
Welcome to our new server! The domain is still pointing to the old one, but that won't stop us from updating
the site ;) Please bookmark http://goodolddays.cjb.net for now.
Note that not all the downloads are up yet - so please don't mail us about them!
adhoc added Imperium
After yesterday's shocking news, I've something very positive today: The server has arrived and I'm currently
uploading everything! I hope you understand that I want to finish that as soon as possible, so there's no
addition today. And when you wake up tomorrow, you'll hopefully be able to access The Good Old Days on its own
I don't feel like talking much today because (as you might have already noticed)
has closed its doors today. The SPA sent a
'cease and desist' letter :(
I'm glad Tapuak jumped in to do today's update: Panzer
From my collection of rare and obscure games: Tube
Today I proudly present adhoc's first self-update! Before, I always had to do half of the work, he only sent
me the raw contents. But now he's independent. Well, at least almost ;) So have fun with the game! Which game?
Oh, didn't I say? Ok then, it's Civilization for Windows
From now on, I won't mention the new descriptions anymore. Just trust me, I'm working on it!
One new comic: Falling Stars
Apart from the usual descriptions, there's also a new one: Russian
The same as yesterday: more descriptions in the apps section!
I've continued with the quality improvements in the apps section. Not really too much so far, but I'm on
Now the moment has come. I can't stand the apps section anymore! It's completely useless because how should
anyone know from the programs' titles what they are for? Because of that, I'll now start including one-liners
for all of them. I know that's still not much, but it's all I can do :( If someone would like to become a
co-webmaster for the apps section, someone who is really dedicated to these tools, he would of course be the better
choice. But since noone seems to be willing to do it, you'll have to live with it...
Five new apps: PGP Shell 1.00, Phoebe 1.21, PopCal 2.0, Pot Pourrie,
RGB Vue 0.99
Today we have.... ten new apps
! Surprise, surprise! They are:
WinMol, MPEG Viewer, Scalable MPEG 2.0, MsgBox Editor, Nustuff for Windows 1.0, NONAG 2.0, Micro-OdoMeter 1.2,
OKFonts, PagePlus and Compute used Disk-Space 2.0
By request of the copyright holder, the download of Deluxe
has been removed. I'm linking to their official site now instead.
New apps again, and also ten once again:ICV v2.1, Iconview,
JiffyGif Pro 1.3, JPEG File Viewer 0.9

Pretty lousy update today. Sorry for this, but I only just returned from work :(
WinRAR 2.71, WinACE 1.5 and VGA Copy 386 6.24
And here it is: Comanche
! I've ripped the CD-Intro
from it to push it down under the (for me) acceptable size of 10 MB. And what I really wanted to prove with this
is the fact that I still can add games myself and that the simulation category doesn't completely belong to
adhoc :P Oh, and please have a look at the very first Screenshot: Comanche on
Much work, but only one thing has worked out:
Within these walls...Armageddon!
is the worthy ending
of the DC-trilogy.
I spent the rest of the day ripping the next game down to an acceptable size. More of it tomorrow.
Yawn! I'm so exhausted that I almost fell asleep doing this update. I didn't nearly do all the stuff I wanted
to do! So it's only one new game added by Gesh today: The
I just returned home after hours and hours of work. Fortunately, adhoc cared for today's update:
Deluxe Ski Jumping
Gesh tweaked some of the graphics.

As you can see, the poll on the right is gone. I did that because with so many votes, the new ones didn't
change anything anymore anyway (hehe), so it was just the short comments which were still interesting. And you
can as well leave those in the forum!
I've updated the links
, changing the status of some sites.
now contains a list of the 'open jobs'.
It will always represent the latest needs, so be sure to check it out!
And another 14 apps! Yesterday's update already made The Good Old Days the largest site for old tools. But
with these additions, it should be made completely official! All news ones are
Complete Program Deleter 2.3
The sad event of the day is that Vohaul closed B.S:O.D
forever! BUT he gave me three of his reviews:
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
and the first two parts of the
Legend of Kyrandia
-series. But what is the addition
of three games compared to the loss of a great site?
The ad on top has been changed to a pure 'Click-Banner'. So impressions aren't enough anymore! I'd be more
than glad if you just clicked it once per visit, or at least if you download something!
"15.12.2000: Mega update coming soon!" Nah, I won't give you that ;) Here it is! 22 new apps today. I won't
list them all, just go to the Graphics-
and find out yourself!
It finally happened! The loss my site makes has grown too much! Now this is really some kind of 'last
compromise': I'll move the apps and comics somewhere else, I'll split the site up to more pages and put up
'back'-buttons to get more banner impressions. If that all doesn't help, it is 'Goodbye Good Old Days' :(
I simply can't keep up the work on so many different sites (TUOL, Abandonweb, Gamport, GOD) and still fight
the daily struggle against free servers. I'll of course update as long as it lasts, so let's see how it
developes. If you know any alternative, please let me know!
As you probably can imagine, I'm not really in the mood of doing a big update now. So it's only two
new apps today: Voyetra Sequencer Pro Plus
The Draw 3.3
. But at least that brings us to the nice number of
Tapuak changed the SNES-section
's design a bit and
uploaded another emulator. Err... 101 apps...
50 updates in a row!
And don't forget to check out The Abandonware Oscars
and nominate my site :P
The sad news first: Agames' banner XChange is gone because the server couldn't handle the traffic :(
The good news: The Abandonware Oscars
I happen to be the organizer and head of the jury, but that doesn't mean you can't nominate me and my site -
go over there immediately! ;)
The usual news: No comic today, but 12 new apps
At-Slow 4.00, CCS64 1.09, Minus/4 for DOS and Windows, Moslo Deluxe 2.1, Mosaic Netscape 0.9, PCXDump 5.00,
Screen Thief 1.56, Stella 1.1, WinEMU 0.48 and YAPE 0.27! Most of them are emulators :)
Happy new year everyone! The new year begins like the last one ended: with an update! What else?
Five new apps
(GW-Basic 3.22, MS-DOS 6.22, Qemm 7.04,
Rawrite and Unpackexe 1.0) and one new comic
