@Sama: When I downloaded this patch, I thought it was there using your permission, because this patch website and its mantainer are mentioned a lot on MRC and other MSX sites. I'm sorry oO

@Huey: a very reliable source informed me that a new Sargon website will be launched as soon as it's finished Smile. It's not sure when it will be finished, though.
@snakepow: that's ok, I guess it's not more than normal that people download such stuff when they find it online somewhere. Deliberately putting it online for download without the author's permission is something else, but that's not something I or anyone else can blame you for Smile.

hmm hmm, with this being gray-area (as you said yourself: the issue of whether translation copyright really belongs to you, or still to the original game creator), I'd much rather see you do a friendly request to other msx peepz to not distribute it. Smile

we are supposed to be a friendly community, waving your magic wand of the law about it is kinda silly Tongue

It's a bit weird to take every single opportunity to have a go at that. Question
Also, please don't abuse the Mod Alert system.

@hap: please read my post once more. There is no doubt about the copyright of my translation belonging to me. I was not questioning the applicability of copyright to translations, but pointing out that the work has to be genuine and original. As for my translation, this is the case.

Also, please read this forum thread once more. There is no waving about any wands of law; people ask copyright law questions and I simply answer them. Apart from that, it is true that it's not only my personal feeling that it's bad to distribute stuff other people made without asking for their approval - apparently this feeling is shared by many others, hence something like copyright law exists.

Also, please don't abuse the Mod Alert system.i had to, i was in a sillymood =p

Sama, I don't mean to step on your toes here or something. Strong opinions like the ones you posted are like food to me to react to, cause of my differing opinion. Good luck on your site, hope to see your msx translations on it and maybe some fresh stuff. Smile

[…]like a public declaration that the software is freeware, which is not the case here).[…]
AFAIK Freeware can still have distribution limitations, contrary to Public Domain or Free Software Smile

I noticed that seven years ago there was a discussion on Hydlide II.

I have the original game, and want to play the translated version on bluemsx. Like this thread started, I have the problem that I can create a character but apparently cannot save that character. So the game won't start. What can be done here (which is legal)?
