Downloads ADF wiki page needs update

One of the sites is 'pay only' downloads. (Amiga Power)

I think that should be added into list as well.

I tried to edit it but I can't figure it out.

Yeah, I discovered last night that the site was now asking people to register and pay a small price for it.

What's worse is that it's done through the phone.... I haven't done this sort of thing before and I just don't know if I can trust it somehow.


It's a shame as they host a good deal of old HDFs too!

You'll have to pay 0.47 GBP for a lifetime membership... This is really dangerous

Come on this small amount can't be the problem, go ahead an call them if you wanna download.

Well, so long as there aren't any hidden charges or anything...... the bit where it mentioned 20 minutes or summat kinda irked me a tad.

Well, it seems I can't register anyway - as I just remembered that 09 numbers are blocked on our phone system here at home!


They appear to be the only site to house those HDFs as well. Their "forum" link leads to nowhere either! And I can't seem to find any way to contact them otherwise. They're bloody useless!

Well, it wasn't actually too hard in the end. Registered through my mobile (after unlocking premium access on it of course)!

From what I've learnt, the process is very quick, they don't make you stay on the phone for 20 minutes or whatever, the overall cost was literally less than 50p, and the rest of the registration process was done online.

I wonder whether I should grab all the downloads and mirror them elsewhere to make everyone else happy though.........

What's wrong with it? It's been like that for five years or so, haha.

Wiki is working, and you should be able to edit it by login with your EAB's account there. (after joining the Wiki editor group)
