        Logyx Pack by Drazen is a pack of over 150 predominately logic-oriented games.

        The traditional spelling of the word is “predominantly.” However, this is such a common error that one could reasonably argue that the “-ate-” spelling is now correct.

        In any case, here’s the reasoning: “predominantly” (in either spelling) is an adverb, and most “-ly” adverbs are formed from adjectives (e.g., quick/quickly, careful/carefully, perfect/perfectly).

        “Predominant” is an adjective.

        “Predominate,” on the other hand, is a verb, and adverbs aren’t generally created from verbs. I can’t think of any off the top of my head. To use it in this sentence, you’d say something like this:

        Logyx Pack by Drazen is a pack of over 150 games, and logic-oriented games predominate.

        I know that there are people who will find this irritating, and to them, I apologize.

        I agree with the posting, but here is a head-up. The Firefox d/l reported a virus, but Win10 Defender said there was none.
        This may well be a common occurrence for all I know.
        Cheers

        Unless you're in a hurry, just wait.

          Downloads OK for me from both sources, so your browser or antivirus may be blocking it.

          Windows 10 Pro version 21H2 build 19044.1237 + Microsoft 365 (group ASAP)

        Also available on majorgeeks which is An Official Mirror for the author of the games package. I tend to trust Tim Tibbets and his crew after many, many years of frequenting and downloading from that site. YMMV

        Edit: just downloaded it from the above link without any warnings in Firefox ESR 78.12 using a penguista OS.

          They are not an official mirror.

            Whilst the original author does not have a list of ‘official mirrors’ on their site, it couldn’t possibly be, that they are in fact an ‘official mirror’ agreed by and with the author without public facing documentation?

            So, you implying that false advertising is at work on the part of majorgeeks?

              The author of the program is Drazen Beljan. He has no contact information. No Facebook. No Twitter. The guy has been a ghost for years. Heck, MG does not even list his full name.  Why? Because they don’t know it. We were good friends with the owner of the old freewarefiles website before they closed for medical reasons. That is where we got the full name.  No website provides any more info, including MG. I think MG just doesn’t know what a mirror is.

                Having read your slanderous and unfounded comment (prior to being edited and removed),
                I’m sticking with majorgeeks thanks 🙂

        To all who may be having issues with the download. I posted an explanation in the file description.

        predominately

        I plead guilty. The addition of the paragraph containing the word came very late and thus did not enjoy the magic touch of our expert copy editor, Roberta Scholz, who would have saved me.

        Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
