You completely misunderstood me ;-) I was not talking about downloading
installs and do the HD version myself. I was talking about downloading
completed installs (e.g. from Spokyz site).

I was suspecting that the guy who provides the *complete HD version*
fails to do a proper job, not the author of the installer.

- Hollywood Poker Pro can't find one or two pictures. Often the picture
display is "corrupt", returning to the main menu is aborted with a
"stack too low" warning
- Interphase crashes (after max. 60 secs) - and I tried three different
installs of that one
- The bonus games in Nebulus 2 do not end. They just go on and on and on...

Again: I do not blame the authors of these installs. I'd rather like to
know if other people have similar problems with "preinstalled" games.

That's what I'm talking about I just wanted to know if somebody has
similar experiences. If chances are that every second game I'll download
somewhere has the same faults, I might start to try doing the installs
on my own (with cracked versions which is obviously a game of chance).

Well, my personal experience is that most installs I came across are
done for originals only ?
