Such a shame that the oldest backup that Archive have of the old ClassicGaming site is from February '99.... after James had already moved to EmuUnlim! And they don't have the downloads page from that period either. *sadface*
The earliest files I have are of the AIAB-2000-r4 archives. All AIAB distributions which pre-date these contain GIF code, 'ownership' of which was being claimed by CompuServe at that time, so these downloads were pulled, and that is why they cannot be found in web archives today.

I've certainly never seen the green football pitch wallpaper, so you're definitely talking about AIAB-r3 or earlier, and the only place they might be found is on someone's old hard drive...

(hmmm, no, I have an "aiab2000" file, dated 20 august 2000)
Could you possibly run that file (if it's an executable), or unpack it (if it's an archive) and let us know which version it is, please, mate? We're still missing AIAB-r5a from that era.
