I noticed that was offline yesterday... does anybody know if it will come up again, eventually, as Lemon Amiga did a few weeks ago?

I have had words with one of the founders, and I'm happy to report that the site will be up again - hopefully soon The server/site is still running, there's just an issue with an expired domain name which must be sorted out first.

Now back2roots domain is for sale...
I am afraid about permissions of free-downloadable ADFs.
It seemed that site has exclusive title which had not been uploaded at AmigaFuture or AmiSectorOne...

"Gloom Deluxe"(2 disks).
Unfortunately I forgot other titles.
By the way, following site also got permission about "Gloom"(2 disks).
But this site has been gone,too.
http://www.markstechstop.co.uk/coffer/amigagames.php

To tell the truth, I uploaded new Gloom MOD adfs which I created in this year,
however,these adfs contain some same files as original Gloom Deluxe disks.
I am having little trouble.

First sorry it took so long, lost somewhat track of this topic
But i searched through my Bttr backup and i think i found what you are talking about. So if you need this 2Disk gloom version i can upload it for you.
There is also a Cd32 image available aswell as 2 HD versions, One labeled GloomDeluxe and the other Gloom97SE

No thank you, I have both backup adfs and commercial CD32 disk.
What I meant was "I wonder what ever will became of the permissions which BTTR have got. "
Now we cannot contact with neither BlackMagic nor Mark Sibly,the coder of Gloom, can we?

Of course we can recognize these games as Abandonware, though.

Contact should be possible if someone knows how to contact them. In my opinion it's just a matter of will. If someone cares or not.

Contact has been made, but nothing happened. It seems like they don't care anymore.

I don't mind hosting Back2Roots.org for them for free.

Thats sad. But unfortunately you can't force someone to care. But fortunately we have all the files so at least nothing is lost.
