    Yes this one I moderate. However, those two letters are a really big giveaway. Also, what makes you think that this site was the thing that made SirVG stop in the first place?

    I would also just like to say thank you for all the hard work you have done Sir VG

    Question

    If no profit is gained from producing roms then why does anyone bother?

    I can understand if you have a game already or a group of friends and you take it in turn to buy a game, rom it and share it and selling the original game.

    I respected the fact that they picked up the stuff no one else did, there is a lot of completists out there who have to have every game released and SirVG.

    Dumping games is a thankless task a lot of spoilt children moaning about stuff they can download for free. If it was up to me I'll ban those kids from the internet, would make the place a far better thing to use.

    Thanks SirVG. A game being Good or Bad is pretty subjective at times but having as many released games dumped as possible gives us the chance to make up our own mind, and for that I salute all your hard work.

    Gambia, The
    Sir VG ??? Good to see that this fake release group is gone.
    Really no one who has love and passion for the scene cares about such lamers.

    There wasn`t any article about the retirement of SQUIRE.
    So stop this crap.

    Since my comment was edited ill post it again since theres no reason to edit it. SirVG is staff member on a site which sells roms, and SirVG you know as well as i do it used to be PAY only. Not donations. You didn't set any facts straight you just avoided the point.. of course the group isn't for profit but the site most certainly is.

    The site was making a huge profit and i know for a fact the money was going towards your releases. So how is that commendable in any way? Its the opposite of what any real group stands for. Other groups GOOD releases were sold to pay for your ones.

    Btw who else remembers when he came on here and posted that he'd dump a game if someone paypalled him? yeah sounds like what a 'release group' does huh...

    SirVG, It was nice for the releases you dumped,
    It was nice for those who like to have all games available (like me)

    ppl knows games will get dumped,
    not by you anymore, but others will pick up, most ppl really don't care WHO
    dumps them, we know the will get dumped by someone.

    Like noted above by iNFiNiTY, the group didn't make any profit maybe, but the site does
    And that makes a difference to real scene groups and sites.

    I will not maon about the group leaving, but i will also say, thx for the games you did release!
    It is not to me to go into the why's, how's and prolly no one outsite the scene doesn't need to know, etc...

    Since they can be found elsewhere-gratis, whether they profit or not doesn't bother me.

    I salute them (and every other group out there). Thanks for all those 'niche market' releases. Some may call them junks, but to those niche markets they are as good as the best releases out there. Like their last release, it's one that's out for a couple of months, and no one want to touch, it may not be a great game, but it's does serve a market, and my DS is a better product for it. Kudos to SirVG.

    Actually, you could guess the first, but not many people would guess the second. I don't think the mods mind as one edited a post after mine, but left mine intact. [​IMG]

    Reasoning was because of their "points" system, as some games require points to download, (Mostly stuff like big ISOs) which controls bandwidth. But, you are given free points every 24hrs.

    EDIT: Oh, I didn't read you clearly. I meant I think that's the one that was being accused of selling ROMs, which Sir VG corrected

    Firstly there shouldn't be any "points" system anyway, but the site used to be that you had to pay to get points and there was no alternative. It was making thousands of dollars profit don't believe the bullshit of 'paying for bandwidth' because bandwidth is cheap and servers don't cost anywhere near what they make and still are making. They probably only stopped that system because theres too many better sites for free instead now, unlike before.

    I don't think rom sites should ask for donations anyway but there's a difference between just donations and having a points system for selling roms. Its just as bad as selling discs of roms on ebay. You don't see any other group selling the games to pay for it, they just do it themselves. Cause thats what a release group does...
