Donations: why Abandonware DOS needs support
Abandonware DOS is a free service, born from my passion for old PC games for DOS and old versions of Windows. I keep working on Abandonware DOS on a weekly basis adding games, features, etc. However, there are costs to sustain. If you wish to help, well, you can donate a few bucks using PayPal.
I spend money to:
- pay for hosting costs: Abandonware DOS uses two distinct hosting services: one hosts the site and the other hosts games and applications
- pay third party services: SEO web apps, tools for web design and development, etc.
What I'm working onThe time I've got is not much, that's why I try to focus on important activities such as adding more content and making Abandonware DOS more user-friendly. This is just an example of how I organize my work.
- adding files like manuals, walkthroughs, maps
- adding review excerpts from old video games magazines
- adding more games for DOS, Windows, Mac
- re-check already uploaded games
- implementing tricks to speed up the whole site
- adding bigger files to download: ISO images, etc.
- add popular soundtracks (play online, download MP3, etc.)
- implement a better search system
THINGS I'VE DONE RECENTLY:
- changed provider for hosting games
- migrated the whole site to PHP 7.4
- a most played online chart
- overhaul of the company sections: developers, publishers, designers
- and more...
