Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

hi all

I bought an original copy of Half-Life and the Blue Shift & Opposing Force at a garage sale.

The Half-Life copy is an original 1998 before steam, Sierra release copy. By the recent abandonware rules thread, this should be ok. I'm pretty sure Opposing Force and Blue Shift don't though.

Anyway, would anyone want me to upload an ISO of my Half-Life CD?

It's abandonware so yeah, you can send it up and we'll add it. However if it has copy protections we will not provide the means to circumvent it, we'll provide the disc as it is, without any serials, cracks or keygens.

It needs a serial, and it has copy protection, the original CD is required to be in the drive to run the game.

I can say for sure that is does not need a disc in the drive to play. Been playin it a lot lately. It does need a key. Thats it.

Would a .BIN/.CUE work?
