I dug up some old games that I have. Are they upload worthy?

  • Cossacks: Anthology (XPLOSIV Release)
    Image
    Image
  • Besieger (can't find much information about it)
    Image
    Image
  • Vietcong
    Image
    Image
  • Knight's Adventure (probably the most obscure of them all, can't find ANY information on it, also that's how the disk came, without any print on it)
    Image
    Image
  • Age of Mythology 2003 DVD release
    Image
    Image
I'll probably dig up some more, and update here after.

They all look original, so yeah, if you can dump and scan these then they are indeed worth saving.

Will get on it tomorrow after I find my old scanner.
Also, do I need to provide any CD keys?

If it's abandonware and not a beta, you are not allowed to give out CD keys.

No you don't need to provide any CD keys. But if they are printed on the disc/sleeves then leave them intact and I will carefully edit them out for you. Make sure you scan it at 600dpi or higher, and save as tif or png. Also don't crop anything, and make sure you rotate the discs properly to align with the scanner orientation. And make sure there's space between the disc/cover edges and the edges of the scan. Thanks.

Knight's Adventure looks interesting :) Judging from the screens on the box cover, it feels like a topdown or isometric h&s game... hopefully.

Uploading them now. However I've got this error right after finishing an upload.
Code:
Error:   File transfer failed after transferring 1.378.459.236 bytes in 3942 seconds


I checked and it's exactly the same size as my original file. Should I reupload it? It shows up in the Successful transfers tab.

All uploads finished nicely thank you. All scans were excellent as well. It's too bad most of these are not original retail copies but imports, but good ones either way and we'll preserve them.
