I thought I'd added more, but maybe I'm thinking of a different poll?

When these groups got new games, I don't think they would reject a new release just because it was not to their liking. That's personal taste, anyhow.

True, but there are other variables. For example, one crack may have converted non-DOS to DOS, or fixed bugs in the original, or added PAL/NTSC switch, or made more compatible with higher-up Amigas, or the removal (or not) of intros, etc.

This has been discussed at great length here in the past. It is universally agreed that the reason the Amiga went away was bad business practice/decisions from CBM, and not piracy. Mind you, some companies jumped ship claiming that as the reason why, but it could also be said that they were really looking for a larger market (ie, PC, consoles, etc.) And the size of the Amiga market certainly had nothing to do with piracy.

Good because as the Amiga is no longer produced, you cannot get the games, the disks are wearing out etc... - but as they've cracked all these games we can ADF 'em !
On the other hand, even without cracked versions, the WHD install teams have been providing us with useable, improved hard-drive versions of the games from originals, plus CAPS have a working model for duplicating originals, as well.
