    G-masters has been closed, but the forums are still running.


    Discuss.

    EDIT: removed link. Didn't realise the the link offered a link where you could download ROMS. Sorry to all.

    For further confirmation, Google "gmaster forum".

    yeah... the rom sites are dropping like flies. If the site says they are NEVER gonna provide roms again, u could post it. but, u should make sure first.

    Man, another rom site shut down. I used G-masters most frequently.
    However, there are plenty of other ways to find roms.

    Haha nope, as long as there is the 'intarweb' there will be methods of getting roms no matter what, you just got to know how. But it is a shame none the less.

    Sucks for the people who liked the site and get ROMS via sites like that. But thankfully I do not get my games from a ROM site.

    So G-masters isn't down then. The forum is the only thing I use on that site. I immediately skip their home page (this month bandwidth acceeded, bla bla) and find what I need on their forums.

    Was that place still going? I know about the forum but I thought the main site closed years back.

    These sites closing don't really effect me, got me a rom bush.

    Crap...

    Well, if the forums are still running, I guess the damage is minimal. That's where I find all my roms!

    newsreader?

    I use newsleecher still cause i payed for it BUT

    I'm switching to the FREE "alt.binz"

    You can't download headers but you can use the RRS feed or just enter what you need in the search, you can choose from different search engines (webbased), it does the jobe very wel and i will not miss newsleecher once the account runs out.

    alt.binz is very easy to use and if you have a descent or payed usenet provider, you're started,

    I'm a Newsleecher user here, best news reader imo.

    If you are looking for a good free reader though Grabit is quite popular and very easy to use:
