Author: Glenn Scrima

Although Abandonia has an excellent selection of games and is well maintained it like any other site experiences some server issues from time to time. If you are experiencing issues downloading a game it is likely there is an issue with their server. These issues are usually fixed relatively fast however if you are looking for an immediate solution there are some other Abandonware sites that may have the game as well. It should be noted that each guide has not been tested with the files provided by the following sites (unless otherwise stated) so there could be issues running the game. If this should occur it may be best to wait for Abandonia to fix their server issues.
