    I'm having a problem with a partiticular one and I don't know where to go to voice my question.

    it's been telling me for days that "dload lmit has reached, check back in 2 days before our servers come up" blahblah. the thing is I haven't downloaded shit in this computer for months! so why is it acting up and what can I do about it because I replied on that website to get copies of my games.

    How about you buy games from your local video game store and stop complaining that you can't get something for free that isn't meant to be free in the first place.

    How bout you stop trying to be tough? Give me one reason why you joined this site. Or hell, why anybody joined this site. To pirate. So saying to someone on a pirating site, "Go out and buy the real game" is like, Kodewerx saying, "We don't allow Action Replay codes."

    lol, I agree when you say he should stop playing the "OH LOOKZ I HAVE SUNGLASSES" (??), but many people joined this site for different reasons than those you exposed. Actually, there's no need at all to join here if you wanna get illegal ROMs...

    Actually Tc 21 isn't complaining at all!! He came to ask for advice, and to see if there's anyone other with the same problem..

    You buy all your games? Really, what are you dong here if you're so strongly against pirating.......

    EDIT: Just to make it sure, I know this site isn't all about pirating, and that you can talk about games, systems and other stuff, but I meant, why are you here if you're bothered by people who pirate?

    The site gets annoyed when you stick a sign on it's back virtually speaking "kick me".

    So while every last one of us is a f**king cheap c**t and we download every last game simply because not one of us gives a damn, posting links makes the site vulnerable to nasty people that like to beat up thieving bastards like us.

    So I can teach all the finer basics of being a downloading swine, tell you aaaaaall about it, I can't show you where I shop for free online.

    I guess they haven't been able to write a law yet that makes it illegal to teach you how to steal.

    Sure they could, but we have something in the states called the Bill of Rights.

    holy shit, I love what I started.

    haha to the last post.. very funny, I don't care too much for nazi germa- eh.. uhh... gamefaqs.

    google sucks and is owned by pigs who leave out all the good stuff. I've tried it already.

    relax- I did come here to just to ask a simple question.. I love it how a bulk of like 5% of the accounts on this site are all like "TROLZZ, GO TO BUY THE GAME." and while GBAtemps intent was not for prates, the intent of the existence of this site is DAMN close to pirating, and for that, I salute.


    I'm not one of those selfish ass people who ALWAYS have to put what flashcarts they have, what games their currently playing, and what firmware their running. You can find that a lot around here. I think people like to look for competition on who has most nerdy things. Don't worry, I won't be one of those selfish people.

    totally hilarious. Never thought of it that way.

    Yeah I think about the same with the sig lines comment.

    I doodled up the graphic in my sig as a sort of personality chart actually. Each image is something specific to my over all nature.

    Actually I joined this site to try to promote one of my homebrew applications. I bet i'm not the only person on the site who didn't sign up to talk about piracy.

    I just find it irritating when people complain about how they can't download the latest games the very second they hit the stores, or in your case, how their favourite 1337 r0mz site is down/crap/whatever. Or even when they complain that the game they downloaded for FREE doesn't work on their card, when the simple solution is to just go and buy the game, then you will have it when it is released and it will work with your hardware. I don't see what anyone has to complain about when they're not paying for anything.

    Lol, spinal, the promotion worked. It was my first homebrew download. Ever.
    I joined up GBAtemp cause I didn't know about the existance of NDS-Themes.com at the time.
    Then they told me to buy a decent flashcard and I did.
    Thats kinda un-related to roms... right?

    Also... 1000th Post! w00t!

    haha. thats nice spinal.

    but when something doesn't work- i would like to know WHY it doesn't and what I can do to fix it. I don't just bitch- I do and I do so under the sites rules. therefore I am making sure.

    Maybe you should reread it, it only works on governments, not websites.
