Besides ROM and warez sites, are there any ST game archives? I haven't had much luck finding them.

If you know of any, please tell me.

What is the difference? You mean sites hosting PD and games licensed to be freely distributed on the Internet? Old school games or new developments? Sometimes there could be a fine line between legal and pirate copies: one site asking for the rights to redistribute previously commercial games, which makes them legal to download from that site, but any other site mirroring or simply copying the games will still be a subject of warez since they didn't ask for permission. Unfortunately some people don't understand this distinction between asking first or doing first.

A Google search should come up with a lot of them. One of the best is Little Green Desktop.

I basically meant ST-specific archives as opposed to sites with games for other systems (like the difference between Abandonia and Zophar's Domain). Generally, the dumps are better on such sites.

I was there a few times, but I didn't see any download links.

I finally got the bright idea of searching an actual Atari forum. Within minutes, I found this thread (http://atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=70867).

Sorry for wasting everyone's time.
