Hi OS/2 World,

I am an OS/2-fan and playing for long "Links 386 Pro" under eCS in a full screen DOS-Box. Its an fantastic game, quick and good graphics. But playing this game in fullscreen-mode on a beamer does not work. Thats not fine. So I am searching for Links  Golf for OS/2 1.5 to play this game in a OS/2-window, but nowhere on this planet is this game available. Stardock will no more distribute this game. Is there anyone in this world, who has this game in a box or know, where I can buy this game?

thanks mn.

I will keep my eye out for you. I'm trying to find Hopkins FBI for OS/2 with about the same luck. Anyone have a copy of that they would like to sell?

Hallo Mr. Jinx,

thats sounds fantastic. If you find someone tell me under 'mnerlich@tradestep.com', so I can find a way to get this famous golf game for OS/2.

thanks a lot, mn.

I own both games. I used to play Links and it was fun. Hopkins FBI, got it but never really played it. I'm not really going to charge for those games (they are abandonware anyway), so give me an address and I will upload them there.

PS. I own most of the games that were ever available for OS/2, even Lemmings

Perhaps you could upload them to the games site hosted by OS/2 World?   ???      8)

Well, we have actually set up a specific ftp account to be used to upload abandonware; among other Hopkins FBI and Trials of Battle has been uploaded. We will and are working on figure out a way to make the collection available for download and there are other interesting software on it's way as well.

So if you have something that you might think that we should keep a mirror of here at OS2 World and see if we can either make the original copyright holder to open source, move the license over to OS2 World Foundation (or what ever we can figure out). Well, then keep posting suggestions and if you want to upload anything to the server - please then contact me directly at kimh at os2world dot com and you'll get the needed information to upload.

Hi OS/2-World

a download ftp-address for abandonware would be fine. But now Ipino can you zip me the program whitout courses (keeps it smaller) and send it to my e-mail address "mnerlich@tradestep.com". Would be great.

Thanks for your answer, mn.

Hi lpino,

I tried to send you a message over your profile, but it failed! 'Security code or something else'-message!? Can you tell me a way to tell you where you can upload the golfgame if my e-mail address above is not enough for upload!?

Thanks so long, mn.

Would love to get a copy of this game.. would also love for someone to figure out why SimCity 2000 fails to load with newest snap and 1600x1200 display..

Actually.. lol.. I think I know what code needs to be patched on it, I'm guessing it must calculate the starting window size based on the desktop, and it is making a screen too large for the game to manage..  I wouldn't mind being constrainted to a 1024x768 window.. I would just like the thing to start.

I wonder what Links would do.  I even OWN a copy of links, however all my OS/2 software was stolen along with a few development machines when my apartment was broken into (almost 10 years ago).

Hi OS2-World,

Leanoardo Pino was looking in his archives and he cant find Links Golf for OS2 anymore. So I hope anyone here has an idea how I can get this game.

Thanks so long

Links Golf for OS/2 has come up on Prt Bay. Anyone looking for this game can check this out. Since the game is currently abanonware for Stardock, this notification should be okay in my opinion.
