IMPOSSIBLE MISSION - The complete TOSEC
« on: June 17, 2018 - 23:30:26 »
Hello
Following a hard drive become defective, I lost my complete TOSEC.
Where to find the complete TOSEC? I can not find it on newsgroup ... and on pleasuredome, with their ratio rule, I have to wait 500 years ... Why has it become so hard to find ROMs nowadays? Someone can help me? Thank you.

Hi

Welcome to RomShepherd.
Its not hard to build ratio at PD, just jump on the MAME torrents when they are new.

also, you arent looking hard enough if you cant find ROMs

It has been a week since my PC is on 24/24 to share 12 FREE torrents from Pleasuredome (MAME / HBMAME roms, chd, bios ... split and merged). My upload only reached 120mb. On the forums, I am told to wait until the last Wednesday of the month. But, I doubt that it works.   :(

I'm motivated for sharing  :P

if you can open a ftp, i am sure i can help you...
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.

It looks great but, it's not free (MEGA is very expensive for large files)

1) Indeed you don't look hard enough. You are in a good place though.

2) Indeed it is easy to seed for PD, you are either doing something wrong or you don't have patience.

3) If you can (seemingly) use newsgroups (not easy nowadays) to collect roms and use torrents, then ftp is a piece of cake.
(plus I want people that like retro stuff to be able to use the most common original network file transfer method)
Go grab filezilla and talk to D34con.

4) I don't understand this: "I'm tired of returning any internet ^^"

5) Next time I suggest backup, sorry for your loss.
Full main TOSEC (i.e. non-ISO, non-PIX) is 140GB (and almost 760k files) - which is big but not restrictive size to duplicate.

After discussing 3 days with a pleasuredome admin who preferred to take me for a jerk discovering the computer against their obsolete system, I decided to choose [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login
It costs me $ 4 but, I managed to recover in 20 minutes what I try to take for 3 days on pleasuredome.
I wanted to say "I'm tired of digging in the internet": p
TOSEC 2018 is 140.88Gb

Then you miss a big chunk or you use some other magic compression.


BTW, I don't like people calling what i write "nonsense".

sorry, sir.
it was nonsense to me, tosec is 140 gb in size, maybe zip-store = counted bytes

i got 1866 out of 1722 non-iso tosec compressed as raw-files to one 7zip Ultra 384m (i also dont see any sense behind keeping them handable when i dont use them)
and yes, i also have some "old"-files too, i dont dare to flush them.
