I'm not opposed to RLE, or even zip or ARC as long as it's in a version an Atari can decompress, but I still question the need for it tbh.
Obviously you're not downloading a flux image onto an Atari and they are nigger so compressing them is fair game.

I'd vote for that one.
But the descriptions in the OP it looks like I'd be voting for "none of the above"?

I stumbled onto the atarilegend site by accident and, while it seems to have lots of information, I don't see any downloads anywhere. However, this thread seems to imply people are sending them images, which would seem make one think they have them available for download.
Am I completely off-base with my assumption?
If not, where are these downloads? I've looked over the information pages for several games and, for the life of me, I don't see any links to images or any way to download anything.
If anyone can't point out the painfully obvious to me, I'd be most appreciative.
