mame chds all versions
« on: June 03, 2017 - 00:06:50 »
what is the best way to get all of the chds collection, maybe with a site that will do donations for unlimited downloads, this is the only folder that's not green, I got 190 out of 721 chds, I have a 8tb hard drive, theres no worries on that, that's what I have most of consoles, arcade and pinball on, im willing to gamble to do it by hand

two part??
its one torrent with about 1 MB.
that should be done in 1 second
just not to be bad, i just proclaim to not to use search anymore for others than myself. Its easy. If you got almost fullsets, your missings are often posted together in one.

There is only one torrent file, and you are not downloading it.  It appears that you have instructed Jdownloader2 to download the two extra large sized .zip files which are 210.9 GB and 230.8 GB.  Depending on your bandwidth, that's going to take some time.

If you really wanted the .torrent file, it is the 1 MB file on this page: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

Click the link entitled "TORRENT".

yup that's the one im currently downloading, I meant all in 1 torrent, itll be done in less than 9 hours if the bandwith stays steady, its been working fine on my end, its downloading close to an average 12mbps, for 2 hours and 8 minutes, I already have 78.92gb downloaded out of 441.78gb done, that's not bad at all

D34con, you download the .torrent file (very small as you said) and then you open that downloaded torrent file again in your torrent client if you like which shows the full set of CHD's. That's what I meant as the 2nd option other than downloading the zip files in 2 parts from the site itself ;)

*edit* forget this I think we all understand now lol

Yes, we understood very well i guess.
the only strange feeling is why using jdownloader to grab a very short torrent-file. But we all know.
Everythings fine when you are smiling

i tried utorrent, and the speed sucked, jdownloader has been steady at 11.80 - 12 mbps and utorrent would give me no more than 600kbps, im at 65 percent since 830 eastern this morning, and right on schedule
