RGB Classic Games Store
Boss blocked all of the gaming websites at work? No wireless internet connection on your laptop? Your retro computer just has a dial-up modem? I've put this entire website (except for the Forum) on a free DVD, so you can keep your games organized, search them by genre or publisher, read the reviews, and do basically everything you do in the online version of the site, but without having to wait for downloads! Thanks to jDosbox, you can even play most of the games on the site in your browser, which solves the problem of not having space on your network drive at school or work (not that we encourage that sort of thing), or a "cloud computer" that may not have any local storage.
The RGB Classic Games DVD-ROM is free because some shareware authors only allow their games to be distributed by disk if the disk is free. It costs anywhere from $4.41 to $8.28 to create and ship each DVD, so an accompanying donation is appreciated but not required. To maximize value for donors, I've come up with a way to make the RGB Classic Games DVD-ROM more collectible. Every disc is unique! There are two covers to choose from. The disc label lists how many games are on the DVD, what day the disc is a snapshot of, the value of the donation you made, and your disc number. Each disc is individually numbered, like a limited edition print (but without the limit). Discs are labelled with Memorex CD/DVD White Matte Labels printed by a Xerox Phaser 6120N color laser printer for professional quality.
Cover 1 "Raptor"
Cover 2 "Jetpack"
Jewel cases might crack during shipping, so DVDs are shipped in a Dynex CD/DVD Sleeve to protect them during shipping and beyond. They're made of soft plastic and have a special non-scratch sheet inside. The DVD is further protected by a CD Bubble Mailer.
The DVD has 6.5 GB of stuff, plus 50 MB of "DVD extras", and there are no ads. The site will no longer fit on a single-layer DVD, so please ensure that your optical drive can read DVD+R DL discs.
What does your donation do?
If you choose to make a donation, you're making a donation to RGB Classic Games. You are not paying for the games that appear on this site, nor does your donation register your shareware. My primary goal is just to break even on the cost of running the website. All of the money that this website receives will be used to pay for hosting and site-related expenses. On the rare occasions when the site has a surplus, all visitors can vote on how the surplus should be spent. For a detailed accounting of this site's finances, everything is listed on the Donations page.
When making a donation, please remember that there are both fixed and variable expenses related to the RGB Classic Games DVD-ROM. The CD bubble mailer costs $2.25, the DVD+R DL is $1.00, the DVD label is $0.17 (actually double that, since it usually takes at least two tries to get a perfect label printed), the CD/DVD sleeve is $0.11, shipping ranges from $1.80 to $5.20, and PayPal takes $0.30 + 2.9% of your donation. There's a calculator below so that you can see how much it will cost to create and ship your DVD.
When you're ready to order, indicate which cover you want and click on the secure PayPal link below. DVDs typically ship within one business day after your payment clears.
