The Silmarils Collection

Has anybody looked at this collection yet ?!?

Do you suppose these are all actual PC releases using DOSbox or from other platforms running an EMU ???

Considering this link at the bottom of the page:
http://www.dotemu.com/

I'd say it's emulation...
Not sure what type tho..

Looks like it could be any original platform...

http://www.dotemu.com/index.php?page...=compatibility

Would be interesting to know what emulator core they use??

p.s. I like the idea tho...

Yes, I went there too and read a few of their pages, it does seem to me they are a third party vendor that will take a companies IP and convert/port/emulate their other platform games and let them run on current hardware/os platforms.

I don't have any issues with this as long as they get proper consent from said publishers, but what to do about companies that have gone out of business and their properties not purchased from somebody else ???

Not saying this happens much but it can....

Dang. This would be an awesome thing to own... I hope for the buyers they have full copy protection sheets available though, or removed them in some way!
