    Looks like more rom sites shut down, my standard site is shut down right now, so I need to search again instead of typing : www.********.***. [​IMG]

    Turn around...
    Pfew, not my "news" site.

    So, is Nintendo shutting down rom sites in specific countries or just every site they can find when they google ds roms?

    I don't know, but my website is not on the first page, so why should they shutdown sites that are maybe on page 47 but not on page 1?

    Ever think they may have just run out of cash to run it?

    torrent is the way to go for me and i have no problem with it esp since i have a bad connection (3kbps max average) i feel torrent with resuming the download really helps me out even if it takes 2 days to download a game like ff4 (128mb)

    Torrent works well but the torrent roms are mostly bad dumps.
    Like GH, some songs did't work.

    You could always PM ME [​IMG] edit, no, you can't PM (hand flourish) I was never here, move along

    By the way Dash ain't "shut down". He's having site load troubles and is not having a lot of success getting the code fixed. But if you visit at oh my god I should be in bed late (well my time at least) you can often get the new release page to open.
    They've also got a cool member on sight essentially making Dash's problem nil as the dude has been simply posting new roms into a thread he has going.

    I don't think my site will get shut down, its just a bunch of rapidshare / qshare links. They don't host anything

    This and torrent for the stuff you can't find on it is the way to go.

    Guys, no telling where you get illegal games; it's against the rules. Even if you're indirectly saying where you get it from (aka torrents, or download sites like Rapidshare), you're still in a very gray area and should quit before your posts get moderated.

    I thought we were allowed to? I remember there was a thread called 'Where do you get your roms?' Not asking for sites, but methods

    saying "PM me" will only lead to unwanted staff attention (and possible action being taken based on intent)

    I still got my 3 sites.

    That would be funny.
