Hi Amiga-fans,

while reenabling my old Amiga I was very disappointed that one of my old
games, Detonator, was unreadable.

It would be very kind if anyone could send me this great breakout-variant by
EMail (adf or lha, was a normal DOS disk).

Thank you in advance

Gregor

Made in 1987 by creative vision; and after googling a bit, could also have
been a c64 game..

There`s no listing in joobs` website...(is it freeware or not, John?)

It`s on the web, if you`d like to try and find it (one website) ;)

I know, I have a little info on the game but haven't put it on the site yet due
to other work which I am undertaking. AFAIK permission hasn't been given to
distribute it.

Unfortunately, it's not so much my finger(s) but time which is the problem. Even
I must devote some of this commodity to earning a crust. Sigh, if only I could
win the lottery... :)

Thanks Paul; but I wasn`t wanting the game myself, but was looking for it
for some-one-else.

And as John has mentioned, it`s not exactly a game that permission has been
given by it`s authors to be freely distributable.
So I decline to provide a download link.

As for my email address; it was cancelled a while back when John reported me
to hotmail for breaching their terms of use.

Colin had that email address revoked by his ISP after being reported for
distributing copyrighted material. However, could you refrain from using this
newsgroup to discuss you illegal activities - warez trading is frowned upon
here. If you want to do it fine, but do so in private. This is in your own best
interest too, making your wrong-doing public can only have dire consequences for
yourself.

That wasn't the main reason, many people have posted stuff which would be
against their ISPs rules but it was your attitude (at that time) when you were
rebuked for posting copyright material which prompted my action (only the 2nd
person I've ever done it to - The other was Tim Rue, yikes, such dubious company
:) ).

John only likes his website. his replies; and any one that disagrees, is a
pirate (like himself).

Well given that it is my website and they are my replies it'd be rather odd if I
didn't like them, wouldn't it? That doesn't mean that I like them to the
detriment of everything else or think they are perfect. Not everyone who I
disagree with is a pirate - though most of those that argue with me here do fall
into that bracket. You, by your own actions, labelled yourself a distributor of
copyrighted material, not I (and your ISP agreed with this).

OK Colin, money where your stupid mouth is. Proof of my piracy please, if not
then everyone will know (yet again) what a sad little antipodean wa**ker you
are.
