    A lot of this is already available free (GTA 1 & 2, America's Army, Black MEsa, Sketchup, etc), however a legit free copy of Photoshop CS2 would be handy.

        Ehhh. It's not really freeware. Adobe as just retiring the old activation services and are too lazy to push an update. Plus, old users of the software would be screwed with reinstalls.

        Either way, yes, it is free to download. Legality however is a grey area.

        Adobe "free licence" already posted by EC here: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/90204

      Add to that list of already free: Adobe CS2, Elder Scrolls 1 & 2…

      Anyone know if the rest of the copies are legit? I think I have some of them already from previous promotions (Crazy Talk, Ashampoo), so not sure if the website just has copies of previously free programsm, without getting new permission.

          I wrote down all the level codes when I was 8 or 9 years old… I'm 23 now and still have the list of codes :)

      I believe as 'BOWEP'is still for sale, Chips Challenge is not freeware.

      BOWEP is available as a 600kb download (I think posting a direct link is not allowed), but it seems it doesn't run on Windows 7, or more specifically the x64 version.

      There is a game called "Chuck's Challenge 3D" (same creator; Chuck Sommerville) available for most mobile devices and at some point Steam. Doesn't look much like the original, but seems to have the same gameplay mechanics.

        That BOWEP sale on Amazon is not official, it's just Amazon users selling their copies.

      I have this on a 1001 games 2 CD set from 1995. It would've only cost $5 at the time too.

    Thanx op- will def enjoy the memories :)

    I find Photoshop CS2 OK, it doesn't tell me not to eat meat like my old CS3 did.

    Nice post but in keeping with the rest of Ozbargain, how about a simple note in your post which OS this relates to.

    I never did finish Maniac Mansion, and it has bothered me ever since. I guess now is a good time to do so and get on with my life.

    Yeah, not exactly offering anything you couldn't get already, but convenient in the sense it links from one location.

    All the titles I recognised there have been released as freeware.

    Wish they'd hurry up and release an English version of Zak McKracken - Between Time and Space. How hard can it be?

      I was wondering if all these were going to be in German.. boo.

    They should add more retro games like Jazz Jackrabbit.

    If it is free, what is the Serial Number for WinSysClean X2?

  •  

    Are these in English or German versions?

      Bit of both - go to the translated version and click on what you want, under the bit 1 screen before it downloads, it has the language.
