    - I THINK ROMS COME FROM WHEN MOTHER AND FATHER ROM LOVES EACH OTHER VERY MUCH AND THEN COMES BABY ROM
    - RELEASEGROUP HAS KINDA XMAS SOCK AND IF THEY HAVE BEEN NICE DURING DAY THEN MORNING SOCK IS FULL OF ROMS
    - I THINK ROMS COMES TO FSERVES AUTOMATICALLY AND NFOS ARE ALSO AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED
    - ROMS COME FROM HEAVEN?
    - ROMS ARE ACTUALLY "REAL" GAMES, AND ALL STORE GAMES ARE COPIES FROM THAT ORIGINAL ROM LIKE MATRIX YOU KNOW [​IMG]
    - ROM DUMP COMES FROM WHEN SOMEBODY TAKES A DUMP
    - WII ROM DUMPS (LEAKS) COME FROM SOMEBODY IS TAKING A PISS
    - SCENE IS JUST FANTASY AND ROMS ARE ACTUALLY SUPPLIED TO FSERVES BY GAME CREATORS
    - WRITING WITH ALL CAPS IS GAY [​IMG]

    That's a question I have always pondered about though... Is there some sort of private IRC channel where the ROMs are released? Is there a secret uploading website where the ROMs get given numbers then spread across the internets?
    Can anyone answer?

    Groups have suppliers and dumpers.... Dunno exactly how they operate but I know someone goes out and buys the game, puts the original cart into the DS uses the software/home brew that was created for the dumping games into a ROM and uses that. When the ROM been dumped into the memory card, they plug it into their computer and distribute them. Thats how ROMS are created. : P

    AND THE EASTER BUNNY IS JUST A BUNCH OF WORKERS THAT HAS BEEN OUTSOURCED to INDIA.

    BTW, I was reading a UK gaming magazine called Retro Games and it had this massive feature on collectors. Not just the collectors who go about collecting Radiant Silvergun or Panzer Dragoon Saga. But the ones who is like a little elite group who will scour the earth for rare prototypes.... like the Mother 3 game for the 64DD... and then never dump it....

    bastardos....

    When they are born, the mommy rom and the daddy rom opens a rom naming book and chooses it.

    Along with Shenmue Saturn, Half Life Dreamcast and Resident Evil 1.5.

    If I had them I'd dumped them, but then I'm nice and not an elitist and I wont use the excuse "I dont want the feds to get meeeeeee"

    I've too much vit c

    Half Life for the DC is so freaking common on the torrent scene along with Propellar Arena. Resident Evil 1.5 is an interesting one since (from what I remember in the article) the person who has it is an employee of Capcom and he could get taken to court... even though he leaked the screenshots.
