Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support
Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games. However, there are costs to sustain. If you're asking how to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.
I use the money to:
- pay domain and server costs
- keep working on the site, tracking bugs, adding features
- buy recent retro games to review (recent games WILL NEVER be available to download)
- get help from translators (being italian, sometimes I need a hand...)
To donate any amount (you choose) just click on the donate button and you'll be redirected to PayPal.
- more manuals, walkthroughs, maps to download
- more rare and popular DOS and Windows games to download
- more screenshots and box scans
- a "most popular" games chart
- rework of the "play DOS games in your browser" functionality
- a "collector's notes" section with information about collecting old games, box contents, feelies, etc.
- "order by" functionality in game lists
- overhaul of the Retro Remakes section
- overhaul of the company sections: developers, publishers, designers
- make Abandonware DOS nicer and faster on both desktop and mobile devices
- open screenshots in modal windows
- play DOS games in your browser
- overhaul of the home page: game of the week, featured keyword
- more than abandonware: recent retro games
- video games awards pages
- code overhaul to speed up the whole site
