Trip down memory lane
There are many games I grew up with and got me into gaming mainly on my Amiga,. But I also seen the PC had another side than just spreadsheets, databases, etc!! And seeing so many of the games that meant so much, it was an amazing pleasure to play some again and have giving myself a regular timeslot to play through these classics each week now.. Many many THANKS!!

People, no need for jdownloader or anything, just select *show all* under *Download options*, click *View all* on the big file, make up your mind witch games you want, right click on the game, select "Save as", I allow you to save it wherever you want, and enjoy!

Sadly that page has been taken down, that was my favorite go to for Scumm games. It even had the unofficial Monkey Island Talkie ones.

use jdownloader to que desired files
regarding people commenting about file size or time to download. Much like anything on this site like mame chds or tosec packs. Click View Files and you can see entire contents. Pasted into Jdownloader you can choose which files to grab.

Will take a long while to download and you need Scummvm (hence the name of the collection) but you should be good to go once you have these two.
Never mind. It only makes it to 1/4th then stops at number 8. Whoops! Actually it did complete. IDM isn't very clear what it shows but the zip files looks like it's all there.

Everything is in one zip file
A single 100 GB zip file doesn't let me choose which files I want to download. So I gotta clear enough space for the pack and to extract the few games that I want out of it. If these were zipped individually I could choose not to download the stuff I don't want in my torrent app.
Nevertheless I appreciate the upload, friend

Great pack we have here!
I have a question, are these roms prepared to run right away with an emulator or do i need to change extensions and file names on certain or all games?
Anyway... this required a lot of effort and patience!
Thanks a lot!

Files over 1gb won't download as sep file within this listing
Well the original poster that raged I think meant there is a 1gb file stoppage on this listing.
So actually that link posted by @fromarchivologist posted Dec 2nd 2020 will NOT work. It allows you to download files but anything over 1gb downloads exactly 1gb then stops leaving the zip file unusable.
I don't agree with his rage, but you guys missed what he meant. The only way to get the 1GB+ games from this listing is to download the whole 96GB torrent!
Anyway found a listing within IA that does handle 1GB+ downloads here
There you can download files individually. Simply append a slash after any zip file in the internet archive to see the contents.
There is no need to be rude, to give one star reviews, or to blame "Liberals" for your frustration at your own lack of knowledge. Also nobody owes you this software. A little gratitude would be fitting. But don't worry too much - nobody would expect these things from someone of your political persuasion.

@SortingHat how do you like your new president?

Everything working on my end. Like most other sets on Archive.org, skip the Torrent. These are almost always inaccurate.
I know this comment is around a year old, but if you click the Show All, then click View Contents next to the main ZIP archive, you can download individual games. If you have an issue, try asking instead of attacking the uploader.

quite a few of these games are missing files / not playing
March 14, 2020 Subject:
Exactly what I was looking for, saves time installing from disc to extract the correct data files and even a big help on retro PCs now that ScummVM supports Win 9x again.
I'll give SortingHat the benefit of the doubt despite their disrespectful reviews. You click the big blue button that says "Show all files". Then next to the .zip file you click (View Contents) and there's the individual files. This isn't an issue with this upload, just how Archive.org works.

How do you download files individually?
I know this is hard for you Liberals to think about but for anyone who has 1/10 more of brain power then they have how do you sort thru files you don't want? I don't want 98GB of mostly crap. I just want the HE files mostly.
