Objections to making eGame FREE ?!?

A while ago I stopped wanting to take donations for my software. But this is a bit problematic for eGame, which required paid registration to be fully functional, and I still get the occasional request to register it.

I am currently thinking of still requiring registration of eGame (so I know how many people use it & which Amiga flavour they use it on),
but making that registration FREE.


My only problem is what already registered users of eGame will think of this. Will they be annoyed that they've previously paid for something that's now free?
Or will the time they've had to use it (generally several years) make up for that?

I could email each individual user (I might still do so), but it's easier to discuss this on a forum. So please give me your views...

No problem for me, I'm glad I have donated. The launcher is worth it.

Without problem, very good program.

I use all days in my X5000, to launch WHDLoad games.

I'm embarrassed to say this is the first time I've heard of eGame and I think it's great! Sent you a donation for eGame and also for RunInUAE

I personally prefer registrations for programs I like and use for various reasons.
