    +1 to that! Also those older games will run just fine on that old desktop/laptop that barely runs any flavor of Windows too

      I hear ya'. I've been playing through Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy lately. Was very excited over the fact that I could now compile the same bloody games that forced me to always put the disk in to even play back in the day.

        You still need the asset data for the game to run anyway.

        And that data is available only on the original game disk. Same for JO and JA.

          Yeah, but you no longer need to keep re-inputting the disk. You can just copy the game data over.

              I'm not actually surprised. I have a feeling that most people would think twice if they properly read and understood both terms and conditions. Maybe someone from BSD could explain why?
