This is great! Thanks for putting it up here. Do you happen to know if there's a DAT for it?

The dat is formatted for use with their DOSCenter manager, and doesn't have SHA-1 or MD5, so use at your own risk.

That's just an old or incomplete version of DOSCollection from PD, and the ESA pulled some of their licensed content from it.

I'm rather new to this kind of downloading with NZB.
I have downloaded HelloNZB and it shows me about 60 GB of files, but it doesn't download without a server. Do I need paid access to a Usenet server? Or is there any other way?

Yes paid access is required (I use Giganews here) unless your ISP still offers free access.

I've never tested it before, but on [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login seems you can subscribe for a 1 mbit connection for free.
I use UsenetBucket and their Comfort Bucket for 4.95€ / month. Speed is @ 40 mbit.

Pardon my ignorance, but is this an update, or is this all the DOS titles that include #1 - #12 ?

It is the complete collection.  There are no update/transition releases for this collection.

How does this differ from the exoDOS collection?

Well, to summarize this as the creator says:
TDC starts at the beginning of the DOS era, exodos at the end, which is why exodos is much bigger, because of much bigger games.
The aim of TDC is to preserve every single game and some time it may get even bigger than exodos. The creator says, this will already happen with the next release as he is integrating all games from exodos.
As TDC is released every six months I hope we will get this soon :)

Does TDC have different languages, CD and Floppy versions and all this kind of stuff?
eXoDOS is just English?
