Diablo is a dark fantasy-themed action role-playing game.
Set in the fictional Kingdom of Khanduras (located in the Diablo series fantasy world of Sanctuary), Diablo has the player take control of a lone hero as he or she battles to rid the world of the eponymous Lord of Terror. Beneath the town of Tristram, the player journeys through sixteen dungeon levels to ultimately come face to face with Diablo and his demon minions.

If you use for free iMovie 3 - you are good (for free in system Mac OS X)
If you use for free i Movie 1 or 2 - you are bad ! (commercial !)
You are bad and stiller.
And drunker... because every stiller is drunker...

I understand. Somebody here has mentioned that they require the software to also be two revisions out of date before it's considered abandonware. You can take as many of these guidelines as you like, or invent new ones of your own, the more the better.

But, back to the first point, the site is about the preservation of old Macintosh software, rather than providing free Mac software for all those that want it. And as for preserving old Macintosh software, piratebay torrents is not a solution in any way.

@MacWise: thepiratebay isn't an "illegal site" per se. It may be full of torrents that point to illegal content, but some people actually use it for legal stuff.

Anyway, we should not use it, because if it disappears all the data is gone!

I just saw this last year at my local target as part of a pack of Diablo games, including the version of Diablo for classic mac os! Wish more companies would keep this stuff available like that, then we wouldn't have to screw around trying to preserve others' property!

For Diablo, and Diablo II, I've seen them sold as new in retail outlets earlier this year (on the other side of the world).

Abandonware doesn't means "no longer sold" as much as it means "no longer supported." Retail sales don't affect this status because the software is sold as-is. If you buy an AppleWorks from Amazon and you run into a problem and you ask them for help, they'll simply tell you to contact Apple, which will tell you that you should had bought iWorks instead. Diablo II is still being sold at the Blizzard Store, but not Diablo. The game is over ten years old (you can read on the inside of the jewel case, "Coming in 1998: WarCraft Adventures: Lords of the Clans") and the last update for the Mac dates back to 2001, so it's safe to call it abandonware. But as you already pointed out, even if it is abandonware Blizzard still have the right to deny its free distribution. Will they do it? Well if we don't link to illegal sites like The Pirate Bay they might just leave us alone.

For Diablo1 is only argument: "Is the publisher still in business ?"
Most abandonware sites dont take this argument. Look at most famous: Underdogs

Everybody has a different opinion of what is abandonware. There's normally a small set of criteria that should be met, with some extra criteria added that should be satisfied automatically if the original criteria are met. I use:

Is the game / app still sold as new ?
Is the publisher still in business ?
Is it less than 10 years old ?
Does the pubisher still provide support / updates for the product ?

Different publishers support and protect their products for different periods of time, so Wolfram Research ask that the site does not share Mathematica v1, released in 1988. But EA stop providing updates for products released only 3 years ago.

I suppose that we all just don't want the site threatened by a publisher / developer because it's hosting a game / app / torrent that it shouldn't be.

For Diablo, and Diablo II, I've seen them sold as new in retail outlets earlier this year (on the other side of the world).

I am not looking for warez,

I just didn't know this game was not Abandonware.

We've discussed this before. The site is about the viable (cost effctive) long-term secure storage of Macintosh abandonware.

PirateBay or any other bittorrent hosting links are not this.

If ou're looking for warez, like Diablo, add PirateBay to your favourites and search there. There's many of us who still have the original Diablo CD, I also have the demo, which is only 50MB. When the time comes, and Diablo becomes abandonware, and the macintosh garden can support downloads of this size, I'll be happy to upload it for all to share.

I cant upload it here. Bacause is limited to 400 Mb.
Torrent links work! TPB have the best activity.
Do YOU cant download some file?
Maybe to be a few reasons:
- your ISP banned or less torrent connections (special TPB connections)
- your country (like Holland) limited or banned torrents connections (special TPB connections)
- downloaded file is not popular, and nobody seed it.
- Seeders are from another place of word, and your poor connection is broke or refused
- many other reasons

But torrent links work. TPB work. You receive file from PEOPLE, not from TPB!

Sorry for my english

I agree, no more torrent links unless they're properly seeded, but none at all would be great. Direct links are easier.

You know?
I really dislike those pirate bay torrents,
either they NEVER WORK!, or are the dreaded .DMG files, I've been trying to download MYTH II and Diablo among others,
and the download % is Still 0 (zero) on ALL, (Tried on different days)
so I would like to encourage you not to post those useless torrents,
just a waste of time.

one of the things I love about Macintoshgarden is that after sooo long looking for older Mac software, finally found this site.
and I was so happy I could FINALLY was able to download those great programs directly, no 3rd party links, and now I hope it doesn't get polluted with links to a pirate useless web site.

According to the good people at the Internet, that means the tracker refused the connection, either because it was too busy or because the torrent is no longer available. The only thing you can do is keep trying.
