    I am new to this so… thanks for the tip on how to play the games. BUT— I have the feeling I have stumbled into the middle of your site without “registering”. Also, hate to bring it up but is there a pay or donate page? And I did download one dojin without a hitch but the file page is a bit odd with the waiting and such. Am I supposed to register there? I would appreciate some advice since I totally new to this. Thanks.
