    Here's my collection of DosBox games.
    Contents:

    apps\dosbox-wii folder contains the dosbox-wii emulator for homebrew v1.6 (http://code.google.com/p/dosbox-wii)
    wad\DosBox Wii - DOSW.wad contains a forwarder channel
    Dosbox Folder which contains all the goodies check the last screenshot for the full list of games

    Screenies:

    What do you need:
    1. A modded Wii + Wiimote
    2. SD card with ~100MB
    3. Wad manager to install the forwarder
    4. Optional but extremely useful: a usb keyboard

    What to do:
    1. Download this pack:
    *forbidden link removed*
    2. Install the Forwarder with your Wad manager
    3. Run the app and the you;ll see the game selection menu so press the letter or number followed of the game you want to play
    Press X to show the list again
    All games are tested and working fine

    I already made a batch file to allow easy access to all games so Dos skills are not required.
    I also included extra Dos commands in Dosbox\_Dox Folder

    These games can be found on abandonware websites.
    *links removed*

    Thank you

    GBAtemp is a US_based site and goes by US law.
    http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-duration.html
    in the US copyrights take 70 years past the author's death to expire.

    The games are copywritten and it's illegal to redistribute them. DOSbox is okay, the games are not.

    When a moderator or administrator usually does something, it's for a reason. Not for you to repost it. :/

    I don't know what it says in the forum rules about backseat moderatoring, but I would of at least in some way, banned you by now... If you don't know why, then may be you should ask those who you've offended and for breaking the rules about posting certain links.

    There is no such thing as "abandonware" and several of the games listed are still being sold via gog.com and other sites.

    Actually GBAtemp is hosted on a french server from ovh, thus should go by french/european law.

    Copyright doesn't last forever, so yeah, there is such thing as abandonware.

    Find me one piece of software that has been around long enough for its copyright to expire.

    I can find you not one piece, but dozen pieces if you wait a couple hundred of years.

    those are games that were paid but now free and open sourced

    Abandon-ware still holds copyright regardless of where you live, the likelihood of getting prosecuted over abandon-ware is very slim as the author may just not enforce it and overlook it.

    What about the game companies that stopped their buissiness?
    Their knowhow was taken over by other companies, and probably lies rotting somewhere in a box, until they decide they need the room for something else and decide to ditch everything not knowing anymore what it is.

    The european community is currently paying a bunch of dudes astronomical amounts of money to create an archive of "multimedia from the past" to ensure it doesn't get lost.

    Don't understand me wrong, I am not promoting pirating. I am just saying that the people voting the laws don't know s**t what they are talking about.

    In the US, there is a statement "It's the law". Some of us Europeans have difficulties to understand the correct meaning of this.

    Chances are the channel was illegal too. Judging by the OP's other threads.

    I got this wad from the internet and edited 1 picture long time ago,
    I think it's Windows 95 theme for dosbox or something.

    Getting a WAD from the Internet doesn't mean it's legal. The issue is still whether or not it contains copyrighted material.

    Hey I expected such a comment from someone with no "Warez" in his name.
    What does the "L" stand for? Let me guess "Legal" lol

    It's like someone already said, it's no wonder why that no one likes you on this forum.
