Hey guys and gals--I've been a gamer, more or less, for my entire life. Weird that I still am, but whatever. It is what it is.

I used to have a game on an old PC years ago which I think was from LucasArts called "Podracer", based upon the famous pod racing scene from "The Phantom Menace". I cannot for the life of me find that stupid game ANYWHERE.

Does anyone have it that would be willing to let me buy it for a few bucks?

Please let me know--or point me to some hole-in-the-wall website that I can buy the stupid game from.

Thanks--from the old guy.

Don't know of the game you're talking about, but in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (IMO, the best PC game ever made, with an unbelievable score) and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II there is a side plot/mini-game that involves your character joining a landspeeder racing circuit. Just FYI.

Apparently you missed the term "old" in my sign off...what forums? And what the heck is a torrent?

Ehhhh... I used to own it. If I find it, I'll give it over to you (Don't get your hopes up, though).

A torrent for this game would be illegal! I would never publicly reveal information about this.

I'm 48 years old and I've been downloading from newsgroups for years now. PM me because I have found your Podracer program.

Well as long as we're discussing this, I found it too. Only 7 seeders, though.

IMO torrenting a game you legally own is fair use. the media industry doesn't think so though.
