nothing of this
abandonware doesn't exist: a game gets abandonware when it is over 70 years old (europe) or 90 years old (usa)...
to be freeware a game must be released like this, and lba1 wasn't . But the only way to buy Lba1 nowedays is with eBay, and nobody gets profit of the game being sold, except the seller itself.
Now that you know all this you can choose if you want to download or not lba1 :P

Also, the creator of the games said he doesn't mind people downloading the game, I think.

True, he said that in the live chat:


Quote:
david-wilson: Do you get annoyed at illegal abandonware sites that allow people to download your games for free?

Frederick Raynal: Abandonware is not a problem as long as players buy next games
and also
Quote:
Atresica: Would it be possible for us (The MBN) to publish the ISO'd copies of the game?

Frederick Raynal: About iso's for MBN, i would say yes, but this is a decision i can't make alone. Contact me later about that.
Damn..that live chat was something

rofl, was falling off my chair when i read this !! XD

For all intents and purposes, go ahead and download an .iso if you can find one. Nobody will give a shit, except for some purists on here. :P

I don't think anyone really minds, but technically it is illegal.

I thought the same thing!Why do people care whether you buy LBA 1 or 2 on ebay,when the creators don't make any cash on it anymore?It's already been sold to someone,therefore they've already made all the cash they'll get on em!...I WILL buy LBA 3 when it comes out,but till then,my DL'd LBAs 1 & 2 will have to suffice...(no way was I paying some **** on E-Bay 10 times what the game sold for >.>)

Buying LBA on ebay is for collector's maniac depressive !

Though i've done this

This game is 25% of my life !

Oh and yeah when i'll have time i'll upload bot games.

And if someone also search a very very rare version of LBA2... in french ! The voices too. This have never been sold, it's probably homade, but It's perfect. Really nice and no single errors at all.

Humm really strange.

I never been able to get this in 1997 when it came out in Quebec.

Also a quebec video gaming tv show presented this game and they said there wad no possible way to get it in french,

The only way Ii got this it's on emule...

Iif you have one could you rip an iso of the game and upload it to http://dl.free.fr/

Sorry the uploader file website is in french but it don't have waiting time, it's direct downlaod and unlimited size.

The European version called Little Big Adventure 2 has voices in German and French.
The American version called Twinsen's Odyssey only has English voices.

Kobold wasn't saying that the LBA2 version only has German / French voices.
If I remember right there are quite a few languages available in LBA2.
If you start by assuming that all versions have English (which is true), the point is that TO only has English.

Americans actually speak Russian, they should have put it on.

When I realised the one I was playing was the American one with only English I went and downloaded the whole European version that was over 700MB or something from a french site... (because I didn't know where to find individual voice files).

Just for the record, would that have even worked? Can I put French text and voice files into the TO folders and get the game going in French?
