    This is unusual normal a site is shut down and you do not hear anything. . As stated a lot of pirate sites have been shut down lately but as you know and as stated in the quote there is always someone to take the place of those site shut down but as advanced members of GBAtemp will know there is alot of sites on the web and irc offering Roms for download. RomUlation was a good site it will be missed by alot of people but there is alot more sites out there. The strict rules of GBAtemp on requesting/offering roms will always grantee the long term stability of this site in future.

    Oh well.....it was one of my favorites, but it's to be expected that such sites won't last long. I know of several more anyway. Bite me Nintendo!

    It's pretty lame that Ninty is making record profits....and now that they are, they are going after the sites that actually helped them achieve those profits. Idiots! They really have no clue do they? I imagine they THINK they are helping their own situation, but really they aren't. All they are doing is making us rebellious pirates more rebellious.

    A step in the right direction. Although I did use that site for the occasional game I couldn't dump myself (namely my old NES games), I'm glad to see that sites are getting taken down. People constantly complain about how Nintendo having so many profits is an excuse to pirate, but the programmers who make them still make little more then minimum wage >.>

    I know! How about looking into PSP? Games for it can be difficult to find on torrents, and I've seen websites that allow requests for DS ROMs on external sites (which uses little or no bandwidth of your own) yet not PSP.

    A lot of people probably get there "backups" from rapid share, mega upload ect. But those that know use FTP. I Started on sites but everyone has to start somewhere and there is some good sites on the interweb [​IMG]
