Dear M-Tee, may I please re-share your games on my github project page?  More details about the project in my profile --> Thank you in advance! Retro Fan


That's a pretty rad project. Unfortunately, we cannot allow CG2 to be included, since we're requesting donations to a charity for download. So, this isn't really a free release as much as it is an honor-code release (We trust that anyone who can donate does.)

That said, we have an update to Gruniozerca 2 planned, and after that game is updated, we'll happily allow you to include it. 

hi M-Tee, understand. If you will have any game that I can use, please let me know. Many thanks in advance!

Honestly your best bet is to use the US Government's retrogaming archival project and pull roms from that.  Might want to get in touch with them to see if they'll permit you to include their collections in your GitHub but it should be ok if done for archival/preservation purposes.

Hi DaedalusMachina, can you please bring some light what project are you talking about ? :D Thank you!


I'm surprised you call yourself a retro gamer but aren't aware of this website:

Completely 100% free & legal & run by the US Govt for the sake of archival and preservation of older games.

Hi there, you meant thank you.. I knew that page...

The Internet Archive is not run by the US Government.  It's run by a private non-profit organization, and paid for by donations.

Also, it's not actually 100% legal.  It's sharing a lot of software and media that's still covered by copyright, but nobody cares enough to do anything about it (generally called "abandonware").  For example, I just found "Burnout 3 - Takedown" for the original XBox, a game from 2004.  I can guarantee to you that that game is still covered by copyright.
