    Hi guys, the websites been moving very slow for me for awhile now.
    I know that they moved the server (or still is, not sure)
    But I believe they said it was back to normal speed.

    It takes about 20-30 secs to load a page, and sometimes they don't even load at all (Times out)
    I'm wondering if this happens to anyone else still?
    Every other websites loads very quickly.

    Also, it's not my computer, I'm positively sure of that! =)

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    GTA: Chinatown Wars has just been dumped and a fake dump of Pkmn Platinum was released and because GBAtemp is such a great site, it gets swamped with people asking for the roms.
    Despite this, it is nothing compared the when Brawl was dumped.

    GBAtemp changed servers and there have been issues. Sometimes it is fast for me, sometimes not, and sometimes I end up with an IPS driver error.

    Has been a while, and I'm still having the same problems... sometimes it opens fast, sometimes I get a timeout and most frequently an IPS driver error:

    The error returned was (2006): MySQL server has gone away

    mySQL query error: SELECT t.tid, t.title, t.state, t.last_vote, p.*, v.member_id as member_voted FROM ibf_topics t LEFT JOIN ibf_polls p ON (p.tid=t.tid) LEFT JOIN ibf_voters v ON (v.member_id=821 and v.tid=t.tid) WHERE t.tid=139622


    Thanks for this great site, hope these problems get sorted soon!!

    Server problems are problematic. We just have to deal with it until they are ironed out. Believe me when I say the powers that be are NOT sitting on their hands about this. Eventually, it WILL be fixed.

    At least I know I'm not the only one having an unstable connection with GBAtemp.

    Well, I hope this problem got fixed soon

    I get this error as well xD

    Prehaps we should get a seperate server for downloads? Leaving the DB and HTTP to load faster?
