It does work, Just you need to do a little "black magic" to make it work on standard WindowsXP. I thought you people could figure it out. It's not that hard anyway.

And since it's protected, that's why I feel comfortable to make it available for download.

Anyway, I've been out for whole day and the download counter is reaching 18 now, I'll remove the file soon.

Well, I downloaded it out of curiosity but haven't tried to install it yet, and since it doesn't work on Win2K, I'll just hang on to it as memorabilia.

Well, it shouldn't be too hard to figure it out, if I tell you exactly how to make it work, then I'm REALLY playing against with law. I don't want to be like this kind of person since I always support the software I like, for example, even I can make the demo version of GA working like full version without the key code, I'm still paying for it, because I wanna support it, therefore I rather make myself a truethful person rather than some people not pay a buck but keep on cracking softwares. (Prolific people could check my purchase proof with my order number GAPC-NZ-20030422053616-932606).

I make GA-MCE working on my WinXP is purely for my own interest, maybe I've already breaking the license agreement with M$, but I only make it working available to myself, and I remain it intact when distribute around publicly on a forum. This is the furthest point I can do.

If anyone who download it could figure it out her/him-self, great, if can't, then I'm sorry.

Anyway, reply me if any of you still doesn't agree with me or any other queries or complains.

Must be a bug with Firefox. All I see is:

Yes, it's strange. I just got a file called "click.php", and opening it with a text editor i saw an URL to a .zip file. That .zip file no longer exists.
Sincerely,
Sergio.

I've removed the file yesterday night, so the file no longer exist. I still don't feel confortable to put it up for long period even the file is remain intact as it's from MCE, the reasons for I do not wish to release the "magic" applied is already stated above.

Yes I couldn't get it either. I downloaded it but couldn't get it until this morning and now it's not there.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I would like to ask people please do not send me any more PM for requesting a copy of GA-MCE which is working on standard WinXP, I won't put myself in danger against with law, so I won't email you the copy even you give me your email address in PM.

There're several people PM and email me about this issue and they warn me to stay down, so I'll take thier suggestion. (Those people are my lovely friends on this forum who really care me a lot, thanks to you guys!)

...I mean, they have to know that all of us here talking about it already own the normal version, so it's not like we didn't pay for something, but all the same we didn't buy that version and I'm pretty sure it's not part of what they'd consider to be "free upgrades" but they're pretty nice people... Of course, Microsoft isn't quite so nice...

Thanks to Morgan, Tiny Snapshots is up and running again with "Tiny Järvafält" as the latest addition – Go have a look and tell me what you think.

"We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
'Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

James, your instinct that you might be on shaky legal ground is probably right, and I'm glad you pulled the file. I'm no lawyer, but I suspect that distributing software, whether or not you tell people how to use it illegally, is probably not going to be thought of kindly by the people whose livelihood depends upon sales of that software... and I'm one of those people.


NOTE: This is my own opinion, and in no way represents the views of Prolific. I actually don't know what Prolific's official position is.

Is Goldfish Aquarium sold for MCE or is it included?

A special version of GA is included with MCE... it's a version with blue gravel, to tie in with Microsoft's color scheme.

I was leery of the blue gravel idea at first, but after working on it for a while, I came to like it. I know it looks more artificial, but at least it's less dreary than brown...
