Provide Original Files and/or Disk Images with GOG Purchase

This request is for those of us who have old hardware, and would like to be able to legally purchase non-shareware versions of old games and play them on our old machines.

It is 2019, and a growing number of people are still installing DOS and Windows 9x onto real hardware. Without a way to legally purchase many old PC games, we are forced to search eBay for increasingly expensive hard copies of software, or searching online for downloads. Many of these games are on GOG, but are inaccessible to those of us using retro PCs because the games have by and large been ported to newer operating systems.

Request:
* Include a "Legacy" folder for download, which can include floppy disk images, CD-ROM images (Bin/Cue), and/or original installers.
* Include an EULA that describes that the files contained in the folder are not supported by GOG and are provided solely for historical context.
* Whenever possible, include any official patches.

That's it!

I support this. I bought Tomb Raider from GOG to play it on a real 3dfx Voodoo and I got a crappy download that I had to modify to install it on a real PC. And after that I still had no CD audio. Original ISOs will ensure my future purchases.

This would be wonderful. I'd actually like to see the low-level images featuring the copy protection. Provide them "as-is".

I'd buy that for a dollar! I have prepared a few retro gaming PCs for me to play older games with my kids. procuring game media is becoming harder and harder as time goes on. I'd love it if I could get some of the games from my list here as actual playable titles on the actual hardware I have.

This is a really neat idea and I support it fully. That being said it's pretty niche and I doubt it will be implemented.

One consideration for floppies is that almost all of them were of course copy-protected, so any standard disk images would not do. You would have to use a device like the Kryoflux to make a low-level image of the floppy. You end up with some 40 MB of data for an old 360 kB disk. And then anyone that wanted to copy that data to a real physical floppy to play in a computer would also need to have a similar device to low-level write the data properly so you end up with an identical copy of the floppy including all non-standard broken sectors and stuff that the copy-protection relies on. Or you can cheat of course and patch away the copy protection first and distribute cracked binaries, but that would take away a bit of the point of having original images in the first place since you could instead just copy the dosbox-files already included in GoG games to floppies to play.

So much this. Restoring and building old, period-correct computers to play good old games on is getting very popular, a revival GOG itself has helped spark. While it's possible to manually port many GOG releases over to original old hardware, it can be both time consuming and unreliable. It would be absolutely amazing to have proper support, straight from GOG, for installing your releases on legacy systems.

Хотел создать аналогичный запрос десять лет назад, но остановил низкий уровень английского, недостаточный для убедительного и доходчивого донесения идеи, возможно, спорной и ненужной для молодого тогда сервиса. И вот, дождался, хоть кто-то сподобился замутить подобную хотелку. Спасибо тебе, добрый человек. :)

Yes, great idea! I love playing these on the original hardware. Would be awesome to include the original ISO or Floppy disk image files as bonus downloads, I'd buy far more games of this was available

This is a great idea. I know I would be more inclined to purchase old games here IF I could get access to the original unaltered installs for use on old hardware.

For people like me that play on the original hardware it would be pretty useful cause i wouldn't need to unpack and re-do the windows 98 era games, and it would be way easier for me to have the floppy images to install directly on msdos

This would be a good thing, even if it's "disk" images, e.g. .iso, .bin, .zip of each disk that can be easily distributed electronically.
