I'm afraid I'm a little confused as to why registering is impossible. Okay, they've given up fixing the bugs. I can understand that. But the game is still playable on older operating systems, right? Why make it impossible for those people to finish the game?
Like I said, I can understand them giving up on fixing the bugs to make it compatible with later systems. But why not let people who have the older systems and ARE able to play it finish it? If nothing else, why not give a free code to people so they can keep playing and finish it? I can still play Pillars of Garendall on one of my older computers, and am willing to register it, so I'm very perplexed as to why people who CAN play it are unable to finish it. (if nothing else, how about giving out free licenses to it?)
