1) A link to the Evil Dead Timeline, Take 2. It's been impossible to find.

2) An archive of classic OHR games.

3) A list of complete games [as in final version]. And an extended 'top rated' list of games.

4) A process to update games from est. 1998-2005 to work properly with subsequent releases of game exe.

5) The separation of games that look and play like they were designed in 5 min. No effort whatsoever.

You can do most of this by using the hidden game search feature.

Updating every game sounds like too much work and besides it's auto-updated when running it with a modern game.exe as far as I remember.

All recent versions (back to the end of 2007, I think) can auto-update old RPG files automatically when you play them. If you find an old RPG file that does not work in the current version of game.exe, please report it as a bug.

As Rya mentioned, most of these can be done through the poorly placed "Search Gamelist" page: http://www.castleparadox.com/gamelist.php?search=1

It is located in the description of the first forum: Temp Game/Review links.

As far as the Evil Dead Timeline game is concerned, I don't believe it's been uploaded to CP. The closest I can find is Evil Dead Wierd Edition in Rinku's OHR Hits folder: http://rinku.castleparadox.com/Ohrhits/edweird%20-%20Ashraimi%20-%20Evil%20Dead%20Weird%20Edition.zip

Cheers,

~IM

http://rinku.castleparadox.com/Ohrhits, as already mentioned
The Bahamut RPG Community, this is on the wiki, and probably the oldest archive of OHR games still online, but maybe you missed it
Operation:OHR, the main archive for OHR games for a few years before CP came along, also linked from the wiki.
I've never found any other site with working downloads :(

Actually only games from about 1999 and earlier don't work, but certain people deny this.

Those certain people being me :)

Certain other people need to mail me non-upgradeable games from before 1999 so I can test it :)
