Hi SkinnyV and welcome here. Sorry to hear. From the reply at http://forums.bannister.org/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=99891#Post99891 I kinda saw it coming, though, especially when I read that his emulator was not really an emu.

I think the best way to get the Vidéoway games back online would be that a petition be sent to Québécor Média (which owns Vidéotron) or Vidéotron itself to convince them to put the games on their Illico TV service (which replaced Vidéoway). Even an emulator of their own with some Vidéoway services disabled would do the job. That's unless they deleted everything, though, because from what I remember, Quebec TV networks were not well-known to keep backups of old material.


Thankfully, certain games were already available in some form on 8-bit consoles, such as Q-Bert, in English, but it's a shame that the rest is gone.
