I would send the files, but I would need express permission from an admin before doing so. Things like this can incur a perma ban.

I'm going to contact Square to see what I can do about making The Lost Artifact available. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime there is a demo available here.

You can only buy the game as a physical CD unfortunatley. Have a look on ebay etc... I'm sure there's a NoCD patch avaiable to play the game without the CD once installed.

If you really can't find a physical copy, then I guess your only option is to download an ISO from the internet. Not ideal, as it's illegal - but if the game is so old and the developers aren't actively trying to sell or gain popularity from the game any more, then morally I don't think there's anything wrong with pirating the game.

*edit Legally there's no way to play the game without a disc drive or borrowing a friend's PC, as you need to install the game initially to use the NoCD patch

I don't care if they either let the fans have it for free or charge money, as long as its avaliable somehow.

Yeah, I don't know why they never released them on Steam to be honest.

If hell freezes over and they do in fact say yes to Steam and Gog releases, send them to me and I'll help them with the .dll files to make the game support high resolutions, like 1080p. Though I won't hold my breath, cos it really looks like they just don't want our money.

Sardoc. I have the original CD, still boxed. Hypothetically speaking, could you make the game standalone? Pending permission from SE ofc.

@trl online: It's possible to create a portable version with a NO-CD... It's the only possible solution because this game doesn't have a Full Net edition (That requires the base game) just like "Unfinished Business" & "The Golden Mask".

I created a TR2 Updater adding "The Golden Mask" expansion to TR2 for Steam & GOG.com (It creates a folder called "gold" and installs the expansion inside of this folder) I could do the same with Tomb Raider III and "The Lost Artifact" if Square Enix gives the permission to distribute this expansion for free...

Regards
