    At this ROM site that I go to, they were hit by the ISDA 3 times already, so now the way that they give access to ROMs is by Private Messages. Their other policy is that only people with a certain number of posts (for them 150) are allowed to request. The others have to go by trades. Please post here and tell me what you think about it. I hope i won't be banned for saying this...

    when i think about these sites that keep being shut down and have to hide like this, i can only feel pity... if you want roms come to the irc

    am i the only one who cannot stand irc. irc is just to hard to use, too slow, and just bloody annoying.

    thankfully we still have a fair few sites around.

    get funkynewgame.zip



    Doesn't seem like that much effort to me.

    so go to irc, and one of the chanels(sp) has FTPs, download an FTP manager, and then u can go back to the FTP anytime you want and get the roms. easy as pie, mmmm, pie.

    or even just minimise Mirc and do something else like you would while you wait for a web server download.

    Hmmm.. this is just a guess but.. you've never played around with MS-DOS or Linux?

    Command line interfaces rule.

    Besides, you feel like a t0p 1337 HaX0r when you do it.

    I never thought about it... but IT'S TRUE! [​IMG]

    Too bad good FTP adresses are so hard to find, and then most have a ratio [​IMG]

    irc is deafinatly better than the web now!!
    rom sites r going down so fast now but irc is always there and the roms r usually on irc before any site!!

    I share the last 41 roms (0810 -> 0851) with emule0.24b. Why not trying this alternative too (if you're not kind with irc)?
    I'm working on sharing isos of my complete GBAromz Set (5 CDs: from 0001 -> 0851)...Just have to install before my 80Go HDD for that!! [​IMG]

    But I AM a t0p 1337 HaX0r!!! I'm the 1337357 haXx0r ever! None of this wussy GUI stuff for me!!!

    Oh wait, I'm a graphic designer that does almost nothing but web sites and flash... never mind! GUI ALL THE WAY!

    But seriously IRC just isn't that hard -- then again the first computers I used were an Apple //e (anyone remember LOGO, the thing with the 'turtle'?) and 286 running DOS so I guess I've grown up with it.

    If you don't use Mirc cause you don't know how to use it, find out how to use it!! I can't believe so many people avoid it, it's the ONLY way to download roms. no bloody prken links and endless web searching for the latest roms.
    If your not using IRC, learn how to use it then USE IT

    Paintball arenas here and there
    i dont like irc much either
    just find a good rom site,
    ones with long names seem to last longer
    and stick with them
    i get up to 97 k off one site ive had for a year almost
    i love the site and it has all of the new games
    plus, no waiting in line for the rom just point,click,unzip,play

    edit
    i think i got my speed wrong but it only takes 25-35 seconds to get 7 meg
