Software Archives

I'm all for software preservation. This is mostly old, obscure software I have in my library that is not found in normal archives. All can be downloaded for no charge at all.


BatteryDisk is an obscure program which allows you to save your CMOS settings before your CMOS battery dies. In the case if your CMOS battery dies, boot up BatteryDisk, keep it in your floppy drive, and all your original CMOS save data should be stored. Two of my older computers have a dead CMOS battery and this is actually a very helpful program. Version 2.07, for DOS 6.22 and Windows 95.


Resumail is another obscurity, however good traces of it can actually be found online. Resumail is a program which acts as some sort of email protocol, however, it's used specifically for mailing in resumes and such. I don't think anyone in a corporate office uses this program anymore, but hey, it's cool and it's out there. Version 3.0, for Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.

Music Maker: eBlitz Edition

This is one of those ancient turn of the millennium things that hasn't aged well. This is an old piece of software which allows you to create music and import music into MP3s. This was some next level shit back then, as this software mainly utilizes USB 1.0, which makes this even cooler. There is also a not-very-well aged translucent MP3 player that comes in the box, but I don't think it matters what MP3 player you use, as long as it DIRECTLY supports USB. Version 1.0, for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows ME.

Quake III Arena: Screenshots

This disc is extremely rare, one of a kind, and it consists entirely of extremely early Quake III Arena screenshots, probably given out during an old event relating to Quake. I found this piece of software in a big box version of Quake II: Mission Pack - Ground Zero which I recently purchased. There isn't even a disk image online and I have never seen these images before. The bitmaps date from October 1998, so these screenshots were being taken while Quake III Arena was being developed. If you want to see something you'll never, ever see outside of this website, I highly suggest you download this. Works on anything which allows you to extract an .iso and view bitmaps.

Gearhead Garage

Gearhead Garage is basically the first version of Car Mechanic Simulator. The abandonware sites which host this game do not work with Windows 7 or Windows 10. This is my patched version, which is the only working version that works on 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Even though GHG is very fun and very popular, Mekada's site hasn't been updated since 2006 (who knows who is paying for the website to still be up...) and they don't seem to be doing anything with the game, so I'm pretty sure I can host my version here freely. Works on: 166MHz Pentium or higher, Windows 95/98, modified for usage on Windows 2000/XP/7/8/10, 3D accelerator with at least 1MB of VRAM, 50MB of hard drive space.
