He should spread it freely, or kept it for himself. Why do you think that he have now rights to choose who will and who will not get this? Because he spent "ten" years on sorting free stuff?!?
Here we go again...

Besides my posts, read these from various members. Dunny's post sums things up nicely:

... http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=449
... http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=563

Again, this is my personal collection... yes I shared it but was only supposed to be for EAB members; then some fool leaked it and was torrented.

<sigh>

This has been argued before.

He has not made it publicly available.
Only the game image (the disks/HDFs themselves) are available publicly, the configs and screenshots were created by him.
This is his collection, so he gets to choose who he gives it to.
And he has never and will never charge for his collection. He has never demanded money for it. You appear to be having difficulty with that part.

What I find amazing is that you have so much trouble understanding this.

As an analogy:

I am creating a set of PDF files of Achewood comics. One per year, with the comic images (scaled up using an intelligent scaler), their alt-texts, the blog posts interleaved in historical order etc.

Will I give this collection of PDFs away for free? No. Will I charge people for them? No. Will I distribute them to anyone at all? No. The original author of the comics has not made his position clear, so I will not distribute.

All of the image and text I used to create the PDFs is available freely online, but I will not distribute them unless I get the all-clear from the author.

According to you, I should be making them available to all. And that's just wrong.

So this collection should be only for 'golden' members of eab?

Anyhow. DamienB's collection is now freely available for everyone and not behind some membership or pay(?) wall.

Just to be clear: thank you Damien for hard work, appreciate very much, but it is simple wrong to act like this

I am not sure how you expect to be recognized as honest contributor to community when you retain rights to choose who will and who will not get this already free stuff

Yes

As you know, you can grab 90% of the files off the internet... the other 10% have come from this EAB community's hard work.

So, please be my guest... go ahead; download, spend a decade sifting through *bad* files, collate, configure, install, test, take title / screenshots etc...

Once you've done all of the above then share with whoever you like.

...but don't be telling me who I should share my project with; it's totally my decision.

Re: voluntary donations... let's see:

Code:
Total received       =     £480             i.e. £280 + £200 each month
Total given back     =     €300 + £450      i.e. €300 + £250 + £200
You do the math; more money than I've received has been given back to key members of the Amiga community

Is that you again Marcus Blackfellow?

Yup, you've done a great job of spreading my project all over public torrent sites and letting everyone know exactly where to get it from...

I'm certainly no 'golden' member of EAB. I saw a post at Indie Retro News so I registered & asked Damien about the collection. I've always been appreciative that he allowed me to partake.

How is it wrong? You appear to have difficulty understanding that DamienD only distributes to those he wants to. Why is that immoral or wrong?

I was lucky enough to get this at the start and I kept downloading all the updates and fixes to a folder, I finally got around to installing and updating this tonight, what a fantastic creation this is, you would not expect a company to create a work of art like this. And to read all the support he has has given to us to tweak it is unreal. Its so good to have a man like DamionD keeping the Amiga alive. Well done man!
And don't let the losers grind you down ;-)

OK, this is all getting a bit tedious now, obviously it's your right to ignore me, but I suggest this topic is locked for posting. Obvs DamienD as a mod can still post his updates, but we don't have to listen to the trolls and the numerous "no he's a good guy" posts that follow.

If it continues, DoubleD is going to get more and more annoyed, which is what the trolls want so I'm failing to see the benefit of further posting from anyone other than the D.

Just my 2 cents.

There is no reason for DD to defend himself, I can get the collection for free, I do not have to donate anything. Seems like a key point these fucktards are missing, but lock the thread and it's done with.

Appreciated all your support and kind words my friends, thank you

@Ian; I hear what you're saying and trust me, it's even more annoying for me than you guys, when random people who don't know me one bit just join up to give me all kinds of shit... especially after leeching my collection

...but I'm not going to lock the thread again though.

It's a bit lame but going forward I'll just delete any haters' posts... if they really feel the need to comment then they can just PM me directly; simple.

No need to bring down the good vibe of the thread.

I get a good laugh reading the posts from people like this mopibi goose.

It reinforces my belief that a large majority of people are imbeciles and my friends and family are all wrong when they say I'm just a cranky old bastard. :P

Nah, I don't think so, you are not cranky old, because you are only 1 year old.

Anyway, let's get this thread back on track

It should only really be used for the following regarding my collection:
  • Support, assistance, questions and answer.
  • Feedback and suggestions.
  • Game / configuration bugs and issues.
  • Information about future updates.
...and I'm already working on the next Update Pack #3, stay tuned

Thanks for the feedback my friend

...what took you so long to finally try

Also, don't forget these important points when playing floppy based games:

  • Set "Floppy Drive Emulation Speed" to "800%" (which works fine for 95% of games).
  • Toggle "Warp" mode on / off i.e. <End> + <Pause>.
