    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    okay, so we can't get replacement cost. And I have no interest in suing my own insurance co., as they've done nothing wrong. I rather sue the other side. So w/ the other side, the laptop is damaged, as such, the hardware and software needed to be replaced. But they are bound by federal law...

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    no kidding. But we are going in circle: there is no desktop / laptop running win 98, so we can't get virtua fighter 2, there is virtua fighter 4, but that's for Sega playstation https://gamefabrique.com/games/virtua-fighter-4/ so it's not really a replacement as these software need the...

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    I am only interested in claming the replacement value of all my PC games. They were in the windows 98/XP era, but these CD plays fine. With the lost of my laptop, these games obviously won't run (or install) in win 10. So I just want to get a gauge of the replacement value. I mean, a lot of...

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    but what about the entertainment value not change or has not diminish at all? Pick Sierra Pinball. It's pretty much the same back then vs. today's pinball game. So how can we justify a drop in the entertainment value of the game? the whole software is a game about entertainment

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    that's why I post the original question in the first place: how do you gauge a game value? because these old games that I have, I've seen the exact same game at the arcade , as recent as last week, when you put a $1 to play. And I don't see the loss in entertainment value. I will play the...

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    you don't understand. The games are old, in CD, there is no direct replacement. say I lost a sierra pinball game in CD, because the laptop has water damage from a car accident. And those game doesn't run at today's OS. how do you gauge the replacement cost? get another pinball game in Cd?

    For the purpose of insurance claim, does a PC game has depreciate value?

    So while a regular piece of hardware has depreciated value, a PC game, any general PC game, say a first person shooter game, does it really have a depreciate value? Because the same type of game that we play on the arcade, is the same game that we play on a PC, and should the entertainment...

    where do you buy those lacquer mirror finish wood for speakers?

    so if I change my mind and want to buy the veneer sheet like the one from Audio Vector speaker website, where do they buy that? As all the search on the internet shows no pattern remotely near it local shops don't have audio vector pattern. (No burl from Italy)
