Hello, and thanks for making such a great website for us glory fans!
I'm the proud owner of all 5 games complete with boxes/manuals.
Main char: Paladin

Here's my problem:

my qg5 install cd got damaged beyond repair for some strange reason..
(cd-rom went crazy with it) bawling.gif

I've been trying for several weeks to replace/fix it with no luck.
I was hopping that someone here could provide an image of the install cd
so that i can finnaly play again. My game cd is still in perfect condition.

Below is a pic of myself holding the install cd, it's done with a very cheap
camera so it's not that clear. If you require more proof that i own a copy
i will be happy to provide it.

If you can help me, you can contact me thru
my personal e-mail: ddaquino@onlink.net

any help u can provide is MUCH appreciated.

thanks for reading!

That's proof enough.

In which country do you live?

I'd be really happy if one of the members who lives in the same country as you could send you a copy, as I'm in Australia and it ends up costing me more in postage unless you happen also to live in Australia, but if no one else is able to do it, I will.

To that end, anyone else - post here of your willingness?

If there's no response, Crusader, email me at almirena@questforheroes.com with your address, and I'll do it.

I'm from Finland, so if you need help and I'm able to provide it from here, just ask.

Wow, thanks so much for the reply, I really appreciate it!

Problem with shipping is that I live in Ontario, Canada

I have a high speed internet connection and I have no problems downloading
large files.

If by chance u can PM or e-mail me a direct link to the image file that would
be perfect.

But if it's not possible i'll send you my mailling address anyway. I just would hate
for anybody to have to pay for shipping..

thanks again for the help, i've been dying to get this game back up biggrin.gif

If someone from the same continent could pitch in here this would be easier, as Al and myself are both geographically far away, that'd be nice.

Hello my friend smile.gif

I have a 1MB dsl connection and since I don't want to risk damaging my original Qfg cds - I made image files for both my Qfg Collection series as well as the two Qfg5 cds smile.gif

If you want - we can have a direct file transfer with icq (www.icq.com) and I can send you the image file (ISO) for the installation cd smile.gif

The catch is you re gonna have to be a little patient cause my ISP even though they gave me a good download speed - they limited the upload speed to about 128KB so it will take a while to send you the file lol.gif

So if all is well with the above - we can set a date/time and I can send you the iso image of the installation cd for Qfg thumbs.gif

Sure Elsa that sounds good.

It's been a long time since i used icq but i remember how it works.
I'm sending you my icq# thru a PM.

After many weeks i don't mind at all if download takes time.

My time zone is Eastern Time (EST), i'm not sure which zone you're in.

For the next couple of days i can be available any time at all, day or night,
so u can pick any date/time u want and there should be no problem, i'll be on
for it. (after i acknowledged the set date/time)

thanks alot! spin2.gif

If for any reason the file transfer does not work I'd be happy to help out. I live in Ontario as well so mailing it would be no problem from me. I'm in the Toronto area. beerchug.gif

Just to give an update on this topic...

The file transfer thru icq will not work, the speed is just too slow to be able to
do anything.

Special thanks to Elsa for trying smile.gif

I sent a PM to Ghost Rider awhile back who is also in canada to mail me a copy
instead.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to reply to my post smile.gif
This site is great! thumbs.gif

I've got the CD ready, I'll be dropping it in the mail on my way to work tomorrow. You should have it before the end of the week.

I know things are a little slow with the holiday season... didn't think it would take this long though. Darn Canada Post! smash.gif
