<div class="IPBDescription">A SysShock2 ambient pack?</div> Hello.

First off, am I allowed to put their music on the net? It's all on my HDD, sitting there...

    I would. The game is mainly freeware now anyway.

    Alrighty then. I'm not using the aggressive techno tracks, it doesnt fit the theme of ns, so I'm using most of the background beats.

    EA own the publishing rights to all of SS2 media, AFAIK. Putting it on the net is naughty.

    Finished, but I can't host it anywhere. <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html//emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->

    EDIT: Just read your post, I also found another site www.sshock2.com I think that has it all for download. So I'm assuming it's fine.

    Even if SS2 were abandonware, "ABANDONWARE" IS ILLEGAL TO DISTRIBUTE.
    Bottom line, end of story.

    Copyrights are not considered abandoned even if they are no longer enforced, so the software does not enter the public domain just because they are no longer commercially exploited or widely available.

    For the record, Jeff Brown (Executive President, Corporate Communications at EA) says:

    "We pride ourselves in aggressively protecting our intellectual property rights, and we frequently pursue those who try to distribute our games without permission."

    There are no titles in the Electronic Arts library that they consider to be abandonware.

    Official word from Irrational: "No, System Shock 2 is not abandonware, please don't warez it"

    Consider this the final word from TTLG on the subject of System Shock 2's status. Unless we hear otherwise directly from EA and Irrational, all instances involving the sharing of SS2 will be considered piracy.

    even releasing parts of that game is considered as warezing. they put so much effort in it, and it endet up as 3rd most underrated game ever...
    please respect the creators of this wonderfull game

    Oh my god. Everything about older games turns into a WAREZ FLAME WAR!


    Please host, someone could convert it or something.

    Also, for music goto your options menu and advanced, there should be a little box you can check to turn .mp3's on, and set music volume to say 050.0000. Thats all I had to do... <!--emo&???--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html//emoticons/confused.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='confused.gif' /><!--endemo-->
