Hi all

I know that you can search google and find the adf images for whload and gotek drives. Selling them on ebay to make money from what are mostly pirated copies has to be illegal surely ?

as long as you have no permission by the copyright owners it is highly illegal

I bought an "official" Gremlin games CD a while back and was disappointed to find they had included some cracked versions on there for lack of original sources.

Well why publish them then if they are supposedly the original company and don't even have disk images for their own games. This reeks of fake.

They also don't run out of the box and most crash on my A4000. I've had to download WHDLoad slaves to install them from the disk images I found they do provide But they include an emulator for Windows so that works out if the box.
