Question before uploading...

Hi everyone!

There is a game I would like to upload called "ABCirque" (the english title is ABCircus, but I only have the french version), but when reading the generals rules of what is accepted on this website, I came across a problem.

So, the game as been released in 1997 so we should probably consider it as abandonware... But, when I looked on google, I saw a well known book store company that still show that it is available to buy... Sad I am not able to find any website or e-mail related to the publisher of the game.

My question is, is it ok if I upload it?

Here are more info about the game:

Name: ABCirque
Release year: 1997 (probably somewhere like November 1997, from what my Mac says...)
System requirement: System 7.0 to System 9.2.2
Produce in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Here is the link of the book store site's that sell it: http://www.renaud-bray.com/Livres_Produit.aspx?id=132390&def=ABCirque!%2CHYBRIDE%2C737170011252

The site says that it want out in 2006 which is not true, because I played that game before 2006... Smile Also it says that it is not available in store. Sorry for the French link, the store is a store from the province of Quebec in Canada.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi Francis

I've seen that the titles from this French site are not available anymore. I don't think it could be a problem for uploading your game here. But, I prefer someone else (an admin) could confirm that. For your convenience, as I speak French myself, you can use my guestbook (click my name) if needed. Smile

Cordialement,
Franky (it's my name)

Mais, de rien, Francis, c'est avec plaisir... Wink

And fogWraith is also ok for this upload, so... Now, I believe it's up to you to decide. Smile

Many bookstores / libraries "carry" old software that either came with books or without, though they are never available for some reason... usually the case when trying to locate rare items, they show up in a library database Tongue

I'd say its safe to upload.

I can confirm. It's not uncommon for many websites to list things for sale while they haven't had them in stock for years and will never have them in stock again. I discovered that after trying to order old Mac hardware many times, like the 7800GTX 512MB VRAM GPU. |:

So as far as I can tell, it's software beyond abandoned!
