    Hmm....I actually own this game. I don't really remember if it was good or not. Oh well.

    It usually depends where you go as to how abandonware is defined. At a site I frequent we have a general definition thus:

    1. The game isn't supported by the publisher.
    2. The game isn't still for sale.
    3. The publisher isn't a member of the ESA.

    Although abandonware is still technically illegal.


    Cheers,

    Yea, that's pretty much true. That's probably why Wasteland and the old Bard's Tales games are like the only EA published games basically that aren't ESA protected, because they lost the copyrights to those games. But anyway, to those that have played this game, is it runnable under Windows XP at all, or do I need to use DosBox? I rather not use DosBox if possible, it's a hassle to configure. I downloaded Elder Scrolls: Arena (which was made Freeware by Bethesda a few months back) and although the game itself wasn't too bad, I couldn't get it to run good at all in DosBox so I unfortunently quit playing it. :(
