    Hi

    I noticed you have some re-releases and modified releases on your site.
    For example, Tomb Raider 1 and 4 were re-releases from Sold Out Software, and 3 and 5 were modified (folder dates 2004/2002), but Gamerun already fixed those on 3rd February and added the missing Gold editions.
    I thank him for that, I thought I would have hard time finding them, but now they were brought to me on a platter.

    I like to have games from first press and unmodified, I'm sure someone here feels the same.
    If a game is released in 2000, I am satisfied if the folders and files are dated 2001, but I'm not if they are 2002.

    Example of a release which should be replaced:
    TOCA 2 Touring Cars (1998) - 1:1 with original (I have the CD), but added is a folder "!TOCA2_1.2_Update" with a date 13.8.2008.
    That is just nasty, updates should be uploaded separately and they usually are.
    I have an original 1998 image, tell me if I upload it. It's actually quite hard to find it, quite a few sites have the same release as yours.

    I also have a list of these games and can paste it if you want. So far there's 40 out of downloaded 300.

    @GrimReaper85, usually we upload what we could find. If the original release is not available, then something next down the line will do for the time being.

    @GrimReaper85, we are trying to add original releases in the unmodified CD images if it is possible. Sometimes it is hard to find even for us.

    @GrimReaper85, hi and welcome to old-games.ru!

    That's right. But some games are still avaliable as scene releases only - with patches, cracks, etc. on the images directly...

    Of course we always upload any patches separately (even if they are already on the images).
    The patch for this one also will be uploaded, thanks for the info!

    Yes, if you can do it - thanks in advance!
    You can upload such images to any filehosting with free download option, and we'll replaced the previous ones.
    You can leave the links here or send them to me through PM.

    Here is the unmodified image in ISO format (there's no audio, so it's fine):
    Toca2.rar

    And these are the games that don't even have an (English) ISO:
    American McGee's Alice (2000) - only Full-Rip
    Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (2002) - only Full-Rip
    Shadow Warrior: Twin Dragon (1998) - only Full-Rip
    The Thing (2002) - only Full-Rip
    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (2001) - only Russian ISO and Full-Rip
    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Island Thunder (2002) - only Russian ISO and Full-Rip

    I will take care of all of this in the upcoming weeks/months and upload the images here. Is there another topic you prefer or is this one fine?
    This is probably only for games that are not even on the site:
    How to play a file or file on the site
    And I would prefer to stay in the International Zone so I don't have to bother with Google translate. And I can't set it to auto translate as it also translates English topics from English to English.

    Our bad.
    I suppose we could find and upload most of them by ourselves. Thanks for the info.

    I noticed you have a lot of scene releases here.
    They are actually fine, for me personally equally good as clones. Crack on the image is welcome, and you can be sure scene releases aren't modified in any other way.

    Re-Volt (1999)
    Re-Volt.rar

    -unmodified image in IMG/CUE format
    -it doesn't have the folder Patch with rvpatch110.exe
    -on image is a folder OFFRE INTERNET FRANCE with 2 French programs which are of no use for us now

    These 2 are actually on the fence. Have an update on the image or have the original image. But I say updates can always be newer, that's why I only support (original scene) cracks on the image, that way at least the original game works without problems, that is on Windows that was supported at that time.

    The patch that is on your image is already on your site, that is the second offical patch. But there is also a third and final official patch:
    Revolt v1.1 patch

    @GrimReaper85, thanks for the games.
    And thanks to @Eraser we now have the images of "American McGee's Alice', "Hitman 2", and "Ghost Recon".
    I'll try to upload it to the site directly tomorrow.

    Thank you.
    TOCA 2 patch 4.1 should be under Update and not Rip-version.

    Re-Volt (1999) - cue file should be fixed, now it points to IMAGE.img, but you renamed it to IMAGE.bin.

    Yes, because IMG/CUE is an unsuitable format. We upload BIN/CUE or, for example, CCD/IMG/SUB (with CUE in some cases).
    I do forgot to edit cue, yes. The game will be reupload.
    // Done.

    This is also starting to become an errors thread. I check every download and I write things down, so you'll probably make use of me.

    1. Tyrian (1995) - second image - CCD / IMG / CUE / SUB
    It doesn't want to mount, neither from CCD nor from CUE. I mean, it mounts, but there's nothing there. So it's probably not a fault in CCD and CUE, but in IMG.

    2. Descent 3 (1998) - game release year is 1999:
    Descent 3 - Wikipedia

    3. Need for Speed Underground 2 (2004) - both (CD1+CD2) CUE files don't open the IMG, you need to run the CCD

    4. And these don't have the unecm.bat included:
    The Operative - No One Lives Forever (2000) - BIN.ECM name also isn't right - "NOLF Disc 1.bin.ecm", unecm doesn't support spaces
    4x4 Evolution 2 (2001) - also spaces
    Motocross Madness 2 (2000) - also spaces
    Age of Empires - The Rise of Rome (1998) - Pre-release - Age_of_Empires_Rise_of_Rome_Beta_v00.02.02.0703_ISO
    Age of Empires II - The Age of Kings (1999) - Pre-release - Age_of_Empires_Age_of_Kings_2_Beta_v00.11.23.0622_ISO

    I just write "unecm IMAGE_NAME.ecm" down in Total Commander, but not everyone knows this.

    I know you have a guide here:
    [Soft] - Disk image. What is it and how to work with it
    But I think at least these 5 should be made more noob friendly.
    If you'll make bat files, you can also have them delete all 3 leftover files, *bin.ecm, unecm.exe and the bat file.

    We wouldn't knowingly keep any malware on the site. Antivirus programs are well known to wrongfully label noCDs, patchers, keygens and similar tools as malware, generally any type of a program that makes any change into executable. I checked one of them and the results are inconsistent at best: some label it as trojans of various kinds, some just say it is a "hack tool and patcher", which is closer to the truth.
