Great stuff! :smiley:

A general AGS archiving question - I discovered a German AGS game called "Sandmen" from 2003 that never got added to the main database:

http://www.marco-huellen.de/Sandmen/screenshots.html

Unfortunately the only download links I've found are dead. There was a thread about it in 03: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=7347

And there is a download link here: http://freewareadventuregames.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/sandmen.html but it seems to be an invalid/truncated ZIP file that won't open, it's 10mb when that thread talks about an 85mb file.

I dropped the author an email, but if that doesn't work, any chance there is another copy floating around somewhere? The original filename seems to be fanadv_sandmen.zip

I'll take a look through my files, but most likely if it weren't ever added to AGS db, I won't have it :(.
If the author responds and provides you with the file, do please share so I can have the game added to AGSA! :).

Hypertext Module

Thanks, even though modules is not a priority atm with AGSA, I'll be sure to download it to my collection!
I might make a temporary modules subdomain soon though (like I've done with mags/orow/bicycle) just so these files can be available :)

Just realised that links to the bicycle archive on AGSA :).
With some help from wayback machine I managed to hunt down a copy, I've uploaded that file now to bicycle.agsarchives.com:
