G'day All,

What the #*(% do you do when you are hanging out for a game that is no longer in production ???/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I want "MiG Alley" badly, but unless someone wants to sell me their original how am I supposed to pick one up without getting one burned.

Would you feel guilty getting a burned copy of a game no longer available ??

Anyone have the game who no longer wants it?

Am willing to pay reasonable price for it.

Cheers All,

Toasted Toad.

MiG-Alley. That was a great game... I guess all you can do is search for it on the net, there are some places that sells elderly software.

I have original IL-2 and don't need it any more since I have FB so if you want it...I'll sell it to you 1/2 price of what it was selling for...in Australia that was $69.95. Box has all original context in it...CD has no scratches and box is in original condition also so if you want...it's yours....or your friend's /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

EDIT: Actually when I think about it...the IL-2 sells now (I've seen copies in shops) for $49.95 so I'll sell it for 1/2 of that value... namely $25.00 (rounded off /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif )

Found Mig Alley on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com. Took all of 3 minutes and both are available for less than $10 US.

I got info from UbiSoft that tells me they are packaging IL-2 together with two other slightly older games for $20USD.

If you're in the USA, go by WalMart and look at the bargain software...MiG Alley is there for about ten bucks in the jewel case....
