Yes, I used QuickPAR, and even though it repaired and verified all the archives, those 2 didn't extract.

If I combine all 5 of the game folders into one, will it work ok with emus? Also, what would be the property way to combine this collection with eXoDOS for use with an emu/frontend

According to the readme, you can combine the separate volumes' games into a single folder, after which you must re-run "Setup Win3xO" to setup the other packs.

I'll upload those 2 games for you, give it a few....

"What i don't really understand is that Windows 3.x is just a graphical shell for DOS 6.22.
So all the games must still be DOS games..."

This is incorrect. Win 3.x was not just a a shell. It blurred the lines of a GUI and an OS.

Games which require Win 3.1 (eg: all the games in this pack) will not run in DOS. Many had dependencies on things like video player, quicktime, win32s.

Essentially, Windows 3.1 was a 16bit OS that had a 32 bit extender released for it just before Windows 95 was released. It is also worth noting that a majority of these games will not run in any version of windows after Windows NT/XP. If you have XP 32bit pre-svp2, then it is possible to run 16 bit software (thunking). However the 64bit versions did not retain this ability, and XP service pack 2 also killed most backwards compatibility.

Currently I'm working on a win 9x game collection. No eta on release currently though.  Thanks to Zandro for being to quick to answer questions regarding the torrents here.

Links are dead, and there are not many options to find this Win3xO collection online.

Any chance of a reupload?

Should put it on archive.org
