    Hi I think now GBA-NFO.com has died we should add a link on each release's infos to view the associated NFO.

    Thx.

    This is kinda off-topic but I;d just like to say that the .NFOs that come with a ROM never work for some reason.

    They're technically not officially .nfo's. Just right click and open it with notepad.

    Oops! [​IMG] Better fix that right now mate, forgot you were still down "there". [​IMG] Hope no-one trod on you!

    Oh, and I think this is a good idea! We'd just need to update the script (though I can't do it, I haven't a clue or high enough access!) and we would have to upload the NFO file when we upload the screenies.

    Shame about GBA-NFO really... wonder if they'll return?

    there's a difference between hosting the roms, and putting them on the frontpage [​IMG]

    Well, did they have ROMshare or anything like that? A lot of other sites hosted ROMs (put them on the front page) and tehy're still working.

    Only because they've either not been found by Nintendo, or because Nintendo can't be bothered dealing with them.

    GBA-Nfo rented hosting from some company, and on that space they stored som roms. Now this was probably only private, not accessible for the public, but that doesn't make any more legal, so the hosting-company seized the domain and shut down the site. Domain is now up for offer on ebay, tho I doubt anyone really cares; if they decide to re-open the site it's probably cheaper to just make a new domain.

    That said, I think it's a brilliant idea to host nfo's here, have always been annoyed about having to go to gba-nfo to read nfos. Gba-nfo also hosted ips-fixes and trainers so that could also be a thought.
