    I posted on this forum about a year and a half ago, at http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/343268 but wasn't able to reply to it because of the 60-day rule for low-count posters. So, I decided to just say what I was going to say here instead.

    Anyway, I was corresponding with someone through Yahoo! Mail, and just recently got a full version of the 1994 game "Operation: Inner Space". It's a completely full version that doesn't have any "No CD" errors or anything.

    I know that the game's almost 15 years old, there still is a relatively high demand for it, often from people unable to purchase it themselves. So, if anyone really wants the game, just reply here and I'll e-mail you a copy.

    Edit: Due to popular demand (it seems I wasn't the only one who loved the game), I've been getting many more requests than I thought I would. So, I'm just uploading the file and e-mail, so people can download it at their leisure:

    Private Message me if you have any trouble, or if you want any of the Add-Ons (no one's asked for Add-Ons yet). I have Military & Nations of World Ship Sets and The Works.

    Oh yeah: This one is the last I need: I hope it's not too late...

    I would gladly take a copy at ***email removed***
    thank you very much.

    best regards.

    mike.

    P.S: if there are some ways I can return the favour... If you need old games like starfire, star hammer, or the star crusader mission disk, ask away!

    You've got Star Hammer? I loved the game, though I played the shareware version. I forwarded the Inner Space full version, so make sure you get that (if it's not in your inbox, check the bulk folder). Then, if you have the full version of Star Hammer, please send it to me.

    Right, got inner space (thanks a dozen).

    If you want star hammer, go to the home of the underdogs forum: I started several threads on star hammer there, ask alexz721 for star hammer: I gave it to him when I preserved it and he'll give it to you (tell him starlord sent you).

    Also check out several other games I preserved:

    starfire (the prequel to star hammer)
    fire wind
    the xerix series

    thanks again.

    Internet is actually veery tiny space. :)

    1. Actually, I don't hope, that I can receive Inner Space here. But as broadwing receive it... kvn8907, can I repeat my request and ask you for Inner Space again? ***email removed***. If you need something another - only ask. :) I haven't much rare things (as I think :)), but I have many different ones - there is could be something valuable for you.

    2. If not... broadwing, you owe me a favor, do you? ;)

    Erm... I thinked, it is only suggestion, not rule. I don't care much about this address, because it is public and heavy anti-spamed. :) But as you say so... Ok, I am sorry, I'll PM then. :)

    It's not a suggestion, it's a rule.

    Why can't you just give it to me? I had to apply for registration to the Underdogs forum, and I'm still waiting for confirmation. And even if I do get confirmation, I have to ask someone else for the game.

    This is getting to be quite a hassle for a simple game.

    Heh, I'm sorry but I don't have it anymore: I'll ask alex if you wish (I'll get you starfire too).

    That would be nice. Besides, I can't get on to the Underdogs forum until a moderator accepts my registration, and so far I haven't heard anything about that. It's certainly odd to find a forum like that where registration takes more than 10 minutes.

    Anyway, tell me when you get Star Hammer, and Star Fire if you can.

    Don't be to hard on the underdogs: They are maintaining their forums and site despite the fact that sarinee is away: Not an easy task, far from it! And I can assure you I'm more than greatful for it: If underdogs closed up, where would we be??? It would be a huge blow to games preservation efforts in general, as their data bank is one of the most complete we can have.

    I have another bit of news: I have contacted alex and given him your address: He will forward starfire and star hammer to you: Consider yourself liberated from your search. Those games have been given to me on request by paul turbett (the creator) with permission to distribute the full versions, so go on and have fun (and spread them as much as you can).

    best regards.

    Oh that's what Starfire was! The name sounded familiar, but I couldn't remember exactly what the game was. Now I remember, and remember how much fun I had playing the game. Actually, when I first played the games, I never even thought Starfire and Star Hammer were related. They both came on this "2000 Games" CD which was a collection of shareware, but I played them separately and at different times, and didn't notice the similarities. It was a real bummer when their shareware trial missions ran out, and as a kid of about 8 or so, I had no chance in heck of ever registering them at the time.

    Both games work perfectly on my computer, thankfully. Thanks a lot! It's really fun to play the full versions of games I only knew of as shareware (just as with Inner Space ;-).

    And I can assure you they weren't easy to preserve: It's lucky that paul turbett made some noise at belevolent online (SLS doesn't exist anymore), and that he still had the games.

    Anyhow, enjoy! Those are preserved now!
