Now this is getting interesting Marv. It would sure settle the
end users agreement. I would think it would be a freeware
after a period of time but this should answer this once and for
all.

I also posted over at Content Paradise to get their take on this and see what suggestions they may have. Mean while I'm still waiting for a reply to my response at SmithMicro concerning the issue of freeware. I'll keep everyone updated.

And the response is:

 Response (John Csaky)     12/05/2008 08:33 AM
I apologize for the confusion. Because the software is no longer supported or sold does not make it Freeware. Obtaining a Copy from your friend causes both of you to be in violation of the EULA of the Product. The copies included on Magazines when they were available are not Free but included by the Magazine Publisher under a negotiated licensing by the creators of Poser at that time.

With that said, Content Paradise is currently selling Poser 6 at a deep discount.

http://www.contentparadise.com/us/u...r_product_45324

Again, acquiring a copy of an older version is a violation of the EULA.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks

Welp, there ya go!   Now comes my two cents. I think it is a
pity that Poser 1 is so out dated that even though in some ways
really no value except for a keep sake that even the people who never
wrote it can say it is still a copyright subject from the back of a magazine.
The greed of the all mighty dollar wins out again. One day we will learn that sharing meant just as
much power as being selfish making the money as it vanished into the History
Books once more for us to learn by.

The response was really not a surprise. Even though it is old and obsolete software it does still carry the name "Poser" and that is probably the center point of the issue from Smith Micro's standpoint. It was worth a shot. I guess I'm back to trying to find a purchasable new or used copy somewhere. Still haven't heard anything from Content Paradise.

Well, it is nothing unusual

In any case, the 1.0 is something that I haven't found ...

They are selling 6 for 30 bucks when they gave away 5 for free... Times have changed...

I had a good deal taking Poser 5 for free and updating to 7, I'm curious to know how high they will push for Poser 8...

Back in topic, Marv, you've to ask to someone that was in the businness when Poser 1 came out, unfortunately, I began with Poser 4

Here is a review, found with google, there are some screenshots...

In all honesty I started with Poser 2, got a free copy of Poser 3 and then moved up to Poser 4. I was able to get the free copy of Poser 5 and dabbled a bit with my friend's copy of Poser 7. Years ago when I was using Poser 3 I purchased an old copy of Poser 1. I'm going to rummage around the house once more. I probably put it somewhere and forgot where I put it but it's doubful. I'll let you know if anything turns up.

BTW did you know that if you go into the prefs folder in Poser 4 and open up the Poser.ini file and change USE_META_UI from 1 to 0 and save it and then reopen Poser 4 it will give you the Poser 2 interface. Just a little trivia for everyone. To change it back just change the 0 back to a 1.

Changing the interface huh? I did not know that. An Easter Egg maybe? I wonder
if 6 or 7 does that.

Hi all
I had a copy of Poser2 as well as Poser 3(I used it until end of 06) from cover CDs. They will not work on a machine >512M RAM (This is why I had to switch to higher versions, I still miss the simple and straight foreward P3...) Poser 4 had the same issue, but there's a patch only for it, not for the previous versions.
So If you can get an old P2. you'll have to set up a VM with less than 512RAM to make it work on a modern computer. You won't get this on a stick...

Ah Ha!!!! I found my old copy of Poser 1.0!   I forgot that I had stashed a bunch of old floppy disks in a box and must have put them in it. Loaded it up with no problems and it works. Nostalgia! It's the simple things that make me happy.

I like the "vintage" software !

Meanwhile I'm moving and I found some old 5 1/4 floppies for the Commodore 64 that I thought were lost !

@Tormie:

OMG... C64, that's amazing. I run the old machines on emulators on the PC (and the handhelds). Have you tried any emus, or are you a purist.
