There is a link to the game on the Member page that you accessed this forum from.  Just login at http://www.chroniclogic.com/login.asp and it will be on the Member page.  Just click on the link that says Download Pontifex 10.19.01 in zip/exe format.

Well, there's no EULA (CL, you MUST put  one inn a link or someone will still your game by reverse engineering) but there are the forum rules Enter the forum here

Well, a EULA would be ineffective to prevent reverse engineering in most cases because
a) people who are out to steal programs do it anyway
b) in the USA, the Digital Millenium Copyright Act already outlaws it, AFAIK (not 100% sure, though)
c) in Germany, exceptions exist (e.g. you can always RE for your own use to make a program interoperable with another program; for example, if you need to know an interface etc. - again, this is not a qualified legal opinion)
d) the EULA would be ineffective if you saw it only AFTER you already bought the game, because to be binding it would need to be part of the sales contract, which means you need to know it before the sale. (at least it's that way in Germany).

By registering and then impatiently scrolling until he saw a large friendly button after a lot of legalese which other sites often make you agree to before the download? Gets you right here.... without a pontifex... and wondering where the heck it is supposed to be ':)'
Solution suggestion: another large friendly "Download" button on the page?
