Outdated, disconnected HDD, could there be some hidden gems in there?

Hope you enjoy your stay

About the gems, i doubt it. The sets are not that old (5 years?) and i did not collect much due to my slow connection. They are now in an external HDD but haven't scanned much (however i already saw i miss a ton of mame and tosec :D)

Ummm ... Hi!

Nice to have found your site :)

Commodore is my real passion ... C64 + Amiga.  Ended up chasing the TOSEC stuff to satisfy my need to have everything.  Then discovered the gamebase stuff ... then no-intro ... then ... well ... I realised, there is no 'everything'.  I just love having what I can get my hands on, and re-living some of the golden memories with my daughter. 

Laptop hooked up to the big LED screen - not quite like the days of sitting with your nose touching the 1084s monitor, but Rick Dangerous and Flood (and ... and ... the list goes on) never looked so good!

When I get a bit more courageous, might ask for access to the torrents and help seed what I have.

Thanks for the welcome, niallquinn. Don't worry about it, Collectah. It's okay to be nervous in a forum, but I started playing computer games on an Apple IIe while still playing in the arcades, but I also had school to juggle along, too. You're among friends here, Collectah. Just take your time.

Same passion collectah, started with a VIC 20 in my school days, loved Commodore, strayed into the Atari world a couple of times, but came back the Amiga community was much more welcoming.

The emulator stuff is amazing, the happy days playing countless games can be re-created, i Love it.

I am 38 and in computing since I was 9.
I am in many fora, others lurking, others participating, others banned, others administrating.
I usually speak what I think, which is why I have few but good friends that trust me for everything (inc. my opinion).

I used to be more "known", esp. in local Amiga community. Now "Real Life (TM)" has taken over.

I am looking into completing as much as I can my TOSEC collection (at least).
My MAME collection is fully ok. Talking about MAME, I see you know I am a strong pro-merge MAME+MESS projects.
I love retro computing, esp. C64 and Amiga that are my computing past (still have my C64, 1541, Amiga 500+ and A4000/040 in a closet at my parent's home - if I had the space they would be on display).
I know how to use most OSes out there, whatever the generation or type. I have strong opinion about things around computing. I rarely accept contradiction without proper arguments (ok make this never).
I used to code (even down to assembly for some 8 and 16 bit CPUs), but haven't practiced it for QUITE long. Since it is the purest form of "computing" for me, I consider myself a bit "illiterate" nowadays (although I make a living from IT).

I will not give a second thought before asking a stupid question (I tend to trust the experts and when *I* am the expert, the... more experienced experts). I will not stop before I really understand the reply (usually including why the reply is what it is :D).

Some love to hate me. After all those years in computing and "social networking" (before it was called like that back in BBS days), I've learned to separate virtual entities from real people with real problems. Very few have made me forget it that much that I would happily break their teeth of their "real" version (one was recently in a forum I've learned the hard way is operated by a**holes).

I will read for a while and the climate "suits me" I'll start talking. I will leave with it doesn't "suit me" any more OR if I don't "suit" others (esp. those in control eh? :D).

That's all for now.

Hello to everyone,

well I am also relative new here. Ok sneaking about for a while.

I am from Germany and under 40 ;-)
Since my youth I am an Amiga-Fan but I lost interest 7 or so years ago.
But in the Last time I an interested in Amiga and Emu stuff again so I am very interested in
all the Tosec Stuff.
I am more a quite guy, not saying much but more and less still around.
Although my uTorrent does not got an error my acount on the tracker still vanished. ;)

Possibly not the right place to post this, but I signed up a while back on this forum/tracker, haven't really used it in a long time.  Found myself here again looking for some stuff, and now I find my account's been disabled on the tracker.  Any way of remedying this, since I have no idea what I might've done (other than inactivity) to cause this?  I'm in good standing on a couple other games trackers if that matters (which I doubt it does)

If you want It, bad enough, It will happen!!

Patience Is a virtue!!

You got It right In the other thread, so Im sure TC or one of the mods will be straight onto things...

I dont think ratio Is totally the "main" concern here....

Many sets "out there", make lite work!!

Still, nobody likes a Hit 'n' Runner.....and Its only right, to do the right thing..

Im Aussie....so I spend most days here by myself, waiting for most of them, to wake up....except for a couple

Maybe I should request a "Modship", so I can guard the house, while the master Is sleeping..

I have some experience with PHP, and Admin of a site...and am always hanging out here.

Not Important, but at times like this, I could be useful.........or at least, less useless!!

Cheers

Oh yeah, I'm not terribly concerned, I'm patient :D  I just have been hunting a few things and I've seen some rumblings in the forum that they may exist on this tracker, so I figured I'd try to come back.  Plus I just like being useful, and collecting, and I currently am cheap and don't pay for Usenet (although that may change in the future)

Plus I get really bored at work on the overnight, and smaller sites like this fly beneath the radar as far as blocked sites go.

Gracias.  I see where you're more concerned with seeding times than ratios, which is good since I can see where a ratio may be difficult to build with a small number of leechers.  This is noted, and I will keep seeding as close to 24/7 as my sometimes tweaky connection allows, for at least a couple months.  I bought a NAS box specifically to do pc-less torrenting, but sadly it doesn't allow me to specify where it downloads to, which is sad because I want to organize my roms in a particular way but I don't want to have 2 sets of them downloaded (I already have a 6tb raid array half full with just ONE copy)

Oye.

Anyway, thanks again.

Hello antmac,

welcome to the site. With all that hardware going on do you even need emulation? LOL

"Commodore 64(best computer ever)"

I was competing with two brother-in-laws both with C64's.

Had to nearly admit defeat when one bought a commodore 128 with built in disc drive...drool.
Racing destruction set was the absolute muts nuts on the C64, played that for bloody hours.
Now, Quazatron for the speccy....Classic :-)

Racing destruction set, from memory it had a cracking soundtrack.
Played it for hours with my mates, classic.

128 was a disappointment for me, had the expansion pack but the 128 games didn't do it for me.

Ooops.... not for the first time, made my (pissy) comment far too obscure:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coleco_Adam#Problems

ADAM a complete dog.....  ;)

In reality, I was all Acorn micro-computer side (my dad was a big fan) and big time Sega fan (still am) for the console side.

Over the years most (excluding Spectrum funnily enough) other platforms have been in my hands. I cringe looking back at so much rare stuff I exchanged/sold depending on my ever changing interests/focuses, that really I should have held onto... oh well.

Greetings from Sweden
Been here for a couple of months now, lurking. Found the site while searching for some Tosec-Pix that I missed.

Mostly interested in Tosec, MAME and Pinball. 

Dont know where people on the site find all the stuff, but I'm very grateful that they take the time and effort to make it available to others.

Started my computing with an Atari ST in 1989. Later I got a Jaguar (With CDrom), and then moved on to PC and more modern consoles. My friends had C64's and Amiga, so I've gamed on many platforms

Speaking of which, I just ordered my 5200 and Coleco flash carts... the new SD versions from Atariage.  Will go well with the Harmony that just came in a few days ago :D  Now if only some of the Everdrives would actually be in stock.

Hi

I'm an old newbie. When I was a good nice kid I got my Fairchild consolle the Mattel (WOW) Intellivision to end with the unforgettable Colecovision.

My life was change with the best ever made computer in 1984. Yes it's Commodore 64.

In emulation scene I discovered M.A.M.E. in 1998. My hated hobby (writing dats) is started in February 2004 instead.

I got vanished also too many irc/web friends (sigh...) like MOCAS, bbb, [Seth], claudio, Amytek, [Metroid]....

ehehe life goes on...

Cheese :)

Mattel intellivision was my first console, i enjoyed it a lot like Yori but.....
the best computer was AMSTRAD CPC 6128 of course ! i ask a permanent ban for Yori and Battleforce will follow him !!!   ;D

Greetings from Italy,
I'm mostly a collector of No Intro, Mame and Redump sets.
At the age of 6 I fall in love with arcade cabinets thanks to Captain Silver (does it ring a bell?), now my goal is to build a cabinet with every console & arcade game that made my youth a little bit pixelated ;D

Hi all

I've been lurking long enough here now. So i figured i'd intro myself a bit.
Been into computers most of my life. Early on with the C-64 and Atari ST/STE (ah the bbs days).
Nowdays it's PC all the way, mainly for the emulator experience. PC games do get some loving as well though.  ;)
I caught the emulation bug early on. Back when Nicola Salmoria was heading the MAME team (ages ago).
It was such a joy every time there was a new release back then. Like being a kid at x-mas.

Anyway, this seems like a great community.
Hopefully i can contribute something in the upload department in the future. Mainly on usenet since premium providers have about 4 years of retention.

Cheers

Greetings!   I'm a recent mame cab builder...  I stumbled into a Hyperspin video on youtube a few months back and before long I had an old Dell repurposed to see if I could get it going as a retro arcade computer. 
Turns out I could, and now I have a dedicated machine put together with a bunch of real-deal arcade buttons and joysticks bolted to a temporary board, and a pile of mdf in the garage that will house all this equipment once I decide on the specific cab profile I want to use.  I was looking up artwork for it and as I surfed, something linked me here... where I learned you can have the original game's monitor-surround graphics display on the unused area on your screen while you are playing.   This is something I definitely want to do, though it appears I still need to work my way up to get an invite to the torrents that host these files. 

Thanks for sharing so much useful info here; I only wish I'd realized sooner how much I wanted to build an arcade cabinet.  Lots of fun, and plenty of nostalgia!

hi everyone, new here. i used to torrent a lot back in the day where torrent just started out and i was using it to download anime fansub. that was like in 2006, left the whole torrent thing behind. recently was introduce to usenet by a friend. when i was download a ds rom saw rom-shepherd in the file now. i figure i check it out, since the file name was numbered and stuff. as a ocd person i love that! so here i am. right now i am just waiting for my invite for the tracker. i downloaded romuslus and some dat file to toy around for now.

if anyone have some tip for new user like me, please  share~

Welcome :)

If you become an avid collector, then a ROM manager and knowing how to find/load dat files for it is a must. Clrmamepro, Romcenter and RomVault are the other main ones.

For torrents and sharing, learning what and how to use TorrentZip is a must. After a scan/rename/fix of your files using your favourite ROM manager, TorrentZipping the ZIP archives will let you join torrents with a partial collection therefore saving you downloading files that you may already have.

Invest in lots of HDD space - collecting is addictive and will use up all your free time! :)

Long time collector here, I've been relatively active on BG, UG, PD and other "more or less retro-sites", and finally I found you too :)

Anyway, most experienced with the C64 and Amiga, but I try collecting "just about anything I have a console for".

In time, I hope I can do a little help here too, with uploading to usenet, and seeding torrents if needed (this does however mean someone needs to invite me :)

My favorite systems are the ones i once possessed (C64, Amiga(s) and NES), and with emulation I am slowly discovering the others.

To any and all new members, requiring tracker access...

There are a few members here who regularly send out Invites.....

Please, when you contact any of them, by PM, for tracker access, Include an email address, to send the Invite to...

No Biggie, but nearly every person who contacts me, does not Include their email, on first contact, and then I have to send a PM asking for their email...

If you Include It In the first PM, things will be smoother, and much quicker...

Hello world!

Now that the abbreviated daylight hours are here again I found more time to work on the dead(ish) WG K7000 boards lying around. Got one of them working and hooked up to the 25" CRT. Even picked up an ArcadeVGA card to use and definitely looking forward to getting a very nice Mame setup going in the future. It's been a long time coming. So far it is just a hobbled together mess on the test bench, but it works and looks good.

Hello!

Like others, my first computing experiences were in the heady VIC-20/C64 days. It's a bloody shame that the world doesn't have a perfect record of everything digital ever, but I try to at least keep up with No-Intro and TOSEC sets.

I've actually benefited in the past from some misc fixes posted in the forums, but now that I'm working my way through TOSEC updates I find I'm a bit stumped. I'm hoping to get access to the tracker so that I can benefit from (and seed) the IBM CD Applications fills posted by themadloader a few months ago: http://romshepherd.com/index.php/topic,1601.msg12295.html#msg12295

i've been active in the rom collecting community for more than 15 years...started on IRC...collected console roms initially (rom names like mario.smc and sonic.bin - anyone remember the first dats that came out?  lol)...

I mainly joined for the Pinball sets...they are the only sets that are not updated on most "other" forums and trackers and are a pain in the neck to keep up to date consistently...I'm hoping to fill my misses on pinball and upload to other trackers as well to get more people interested in them!

Take a look on Youtube, at some of the Pinball cabs, people have made..

@Macca38

I've seen some pinball cabs (and mame cabs)...and they're awesome...but it takes a lot of time and effort to build one and have space for one...

I think there are 2 major problems that affect people's interest in Pinball...

1. To get Visual Pinball installed and fully configured is a pain in the rear....if you follow the instructions on vpforums, you'll need like 6 separate downloads...installed separately and in that order...etc etc...I think if they get Visual Pinball at the level of Future Pinball install (and they said they will make an all inclusive installer soon)...it will simplify it for everyone
2. There are no complete fully updated sets on 95% of all rom trackers...(imagine if mame was only available on 1 tracker, and no public rom websites...how outdated people's sets would be...people would only really update once or twice a year)

I think the best thing to do when uploading the Pinball sets on other trackers is to have a complete set (VP, FP, PM Roms) fully updated as of that date with full installation instructions as well as all the necessary files to set it up...I'm hoping to put something like that together and upload it and hopefully maintain it...

Yeah...I did a torrent of an easy Install, years ago, on UG....dunno If Its still available, but things have changed a little since then.

Still, that was an awesome Installation package, and everything worked.

Was real simple then...not so now, but once Its Initially set up, updates are pretty easy...

Ive got It all set up on this machine, for testing purposes...

Then easy to copy across, to the new cab, once finished..

Just waiting on enough cash, to buy a 40 inch TV.....brother found a dirty old Compaq P4 @ 3Ghz on a junk heap the other day...cleaned It up...new battery and hard drive...PERFECT, to run It...

Ive ran that P4 for a week now, 24/7, and not a single error or blip, Including thru the heatwave we have just had here.....

This is Brane from Berlin/Germany. Found your Site, found your DATs, even found some real binary Data. I love all that AMIGA and MAME stuff, GFX and Trackermusics, Chiptunes, SIDs and more. I hope this Forum is a great place to find friends, help and much information. Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Hello everyone! TRS-80 junkie aboard ;D

I've been meaning to join this forum for a while now, and thanks to the world not ending last year plus unexpected, hopefully temporary "unemployment vacations", the time seems about right. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out in my troubled pursuit of evasive rom sets for less popular platforms.

Needless to say, I'd be more than happy to re-share anything I get to download as many times as needed, because preserving ancient software is really just as important as preserving ancient text books and history in general (at least to me)

I'll be filing a request for a rom set in the corresponding forum as soon as I get green lights here. Should I need to do anything before I'm granted such privilege, by all means let me know.

Best regards :)

Hey guys,

Been finding my way back into torrents recently as they seem easier than usenet to get those emu titles. I'm looking to get an emulator arcade cabinet built and running this year and found romshepherd while looking around. Looks like a great and helpful site - looking forward to being a member hopefully for a very long time! :)

Welcome to the forums, Samba123....

I have a working Mame cabinet, and halfway through building a Pinball Cabinet...

My Mame Cab. Is an Original Streetfighter 2 Alpha, by Leisure and Allied, with original serial plates and artwork....modified for Mame, but I have all teh original Internals.....at least those that were still In It..

Slowed atm, due to Finances.....need a few hundred, for a 40 inch TV....but I also need other stuff, like hard drives..

Anyhow.....Here It Is......the BRAIN, of your future cabinet...

The rest, Is a Mechano set to be honest, and a kid could do It..

http://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html (http://www.ultimarc.com/ipac1.html)

They have a lot of new stuff, since I built mine, which Is also pretty attractive.

Whomever.....

either/or, or any, will check It out...

Usual things apply.......need a PM sent, Including email address, and or recent membership on other trackers (User Names).

MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS........so many message me and forget this simple thing...lol

We just need to know people who join the tracker, are already fair dinkum about things...

Anyway, I cant see any problems, so just PM "Someone"....lol

TC Is probably better, as I am not a member at PD, so he can check It out..

No Biggie!!

And WELCOME, Slig2799

Hey Whats up everybody,
I am introducing myself on here.  I just found this site today from B2K24 & I thank him for that. :)
Many of you know me on PD as SGJR.  I need to change that to Tron84, suits me better :)  I have just never got around to asking about a name change. Then I never put a space between it, because it is for a Gibson SG jr guitar :) Besides rom collecting/playing and missing the golden age of arcades, I play the guitar also. So that is why I have a funky name on PD. :) My UG is tron84.  Yes, I am a tron fan in case you could not tell ;) I really like good beer also :)
I know I will enjoy this site also and thanks for having me...

Hi There !

Well I'm finally back into arcade emu.
I have not that much spare time, but I'm building a small cab for my young kids.

I never really left emu since 1998 but changed nickname and I always seed arcade stuff on PD.
I left Tosec go a few years back, there are so many things...  my hard drives can't get them all ;)

Ok, time to play !

Hi everyone :) I'm an old, old, OOOOOLD school retro gamer (not such a rarity around here thank goodness!) - Space Invaders got me into games back in the day, and I've been a gamer ever since. Through the Atari 2600, Commodore VIC20 then C64, then onto PCs, Gameboy Color, GBA, first Xbox, then the 360, several Sega consoles, etc etc etc, up to DS and PSP, I've been around a bit.

Like many other newbies on here I've done my fair share of ROM collecting but I'm a bit out of date, I really need to get some guidance on how to get a lot of my romsets up to date - I have complete sets of a lot of the 'Good' tool roms, but who knows there might have been new releases on old systems in the past couple of years.

So if anyone can point me in the right direction to see what the current state of the art in ROM tools and set managers is, as well as who's producing the most complete data files, that'd be awesome. I'd like to get onto the tracker at some point to give my seedbox something to do as well, but obviously I need to get my ducks somewhat in a row first.

Thanks in advance and I hope to have some good chats and conversations with you guys.

Later ;)

Hi Mate, and Welcome to the Forums....

Im mainly a Collector....but In my Opinion, you need Latest DATS!!

Just a start.......

RomManager (http://www.emulab.it/rommanager/datfiles.php?category=2)

Yori Yoshizuki Dats (https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=CB625B20C5B417E8)

The Wizard Of Dats (https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=A99DD85FC92C165B)

No-Intro (http://datomatic.no-intro.org/?page=download)

Im sure you know how to use ClrMame Pro.......???

ClrMame Pro (http://mamedev.emulab.it/clrmamepro/download.htm)

And for Goodsets.....

Good Tools (http://www.allgoodthings.us/mambo/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&Itemid=42&func=showcat&catid=4)

@Zefrem23

as far as your GoodTools go, there have been a bunch of new releases over the past few months...you'll need to update those romsets as well....go to Cowering's site and grab all the latest GoodTools: http://www.allgoodthings.us/

you will find a lot of the missing good roms starting on this post in this thread here: http://romshepherd.com/index.php/topic,1379.msg13827.html#msg13827

once done, you can post your GoodMiss.txt files and we can help fill those...be aware that not ALL roms have been "found/released"...there are still some MIA for those sets...

and lastly, welcome to RS...   :)

Hello to new members and old members. I am a newbie but oldie and been at this hobby of ours quite some time now. I  see a lot of members here from over the years. I used to visit this site back in the day and an occasional visit now and then and finally joined thanks to Connie and B2K24. I remember Terra Cresta from the old days at PD and thankful for teaching me the use of dats. I had a slow connection, bad luck of HDD crashing (3) or not having enough space over the years to collect theese sets. Some of you I know from UG which was a great place to expand my horizons. I like helping people out and try to help out the community any way I can. If anybody knows of a another tracker for the PS 2 Redumps  I'll be grateful for an invite.  :) 

Any reason for the negative Karma for a new member?

Welcome to the forum, Rastafa

Nice little Intro....

I have no Idea really, however, looking at your posts, It appears you have stated a point of view, and, as has happened to me, when I go on one of my rants, or stand on my soapbox, It Is easy to attract negative Karma...

I have been on this forum, and watched, as It dropped before my eyes....lol

Anyway, Im a bit more careful nowadays, before standing on a soapbox, as I want my Karma to grow, as an Indicator, of my willingness to help, where I can......Im pretty limited by bandwidth, unfortunately.

Its crap, If you start losing Karma, as It doesnt give an honest indication......I believe a REASON should be required, to take Karma from people, that the Administrator can then possibly adjudicate over, as people work HARD to build It..

Anyhow....In saying all this......Karma Is shit, to a point!

Anyway...back to 0....start working on It...lol

Cheers

Also Hi from my side,

I like this place very much and been a while here, started with roms(nesticle was great) back in 97 with disks in public internet cafes. ;)
Came here through dats on romshepherd and then later to the tracker because of the nongood roms.

But really sad with UG.
Really cool site with extreme rare and obscure content , also miss LOTGD....
First BG, then UG.

But nonetheless happy collecting to all.
It's thrilling to see the message you miss 0 of 34658097 blabla roms :D

Hi all new people...

Just to let you all know.......AGAIN!!!

ANYONE PMing me, requesting an Invite to the tracker, will be IGNORED, If they do not provide screenshots of their activity on other trackers, and their EMAIL address.....at the least.

The EMAIL Is REQUIRED, to even send an Invite!!

Any other Information supplied, to substantiate why I should trust an otherwise, usually totally unknown person, to do the right thing, on the tracker, and SEED REGARDLESS, Is an added bonus for you to receive an Invite

I will not even reply, any longer, If this Information Is not provided, basically, as I am sick of replying with a request for this Information

If you want an Invite, please read the forums, and supply the necessary Information, or be Ignored...

Then, you may think Im an Ignorant B............and I may think youre a lazy B, for not at least reading.....as this has been said a dozen times, In various posts, and Its obvious new people are not reading anything at all to even try and find out whats going on here, or making any effort whatsoever..

Please...make It easy, for those of us who can give out Invites, to do so...

Cheers

Niallquinn has tried to help, but you are posting in the wrong topic. here (http://romshepherd.com/index.php/topic,1216.0.html) is where your message should have gone. Regardless, as amiga1200 shows (with a poorly targeted link), the tracker and member status on it will be offline for several days.

Post by: amiga1200 on June 12, 2013 - 13:18:40
^^ sorry, but i'm missing something...? (poorly targeted?) ???
i quoted a response of mine and checked the link in it, works the same as the one you posted, took me straight to the "admin break" thread..

Your link goes to a specific post ID far down in the topic, bypassing the original statement by TC you intend to display. My link doesn't go to that topic at all, it goes where someone can post regarding their tracker status.

^^ my mistake about the place of your link, apologies!
......
understood about the "focus" of my link but i'll have to take your word for it...(i can't see that effect my side)
all and any board links i use take me back to the first most post of the thread, that's why i linked it..(like this thread, entering the updates at the lower of the screen takes me to the first post and i have to use the "#" tabs to jump to the last responses)
.....
in any case, i'll review my linkages in future....thanks for clearing up what you meant!  :)

Hi there guy :)

I'm a refuge from underground-gamer and I was amazed when I entered this site and saw: usenet uploads. My eyes almost filled with joy tears.
I believe this is the only site ever to upload full sets to usenet, which I've been using for everything else besides retro stuff.

thank you so much for having me here and I hope I can help in anyway the community :)

Welcome veggav

Help by joining as many torrents as you can, without compromising your own business of course, and seeding......keeping them alive

If you see a fixdat someone has uploaded, and you can upload to a free and reliable online host, In a timely manner, then please help..

If you have anything else you can offer, of rarity or value, It will be gladly accepted, as will you be, with open arms.....

Thats all It takes......but I dont need to tell anyone, do I?

This Is not UG............Its better!!

And a decent bunch of fellas to boot...

Not me...Im old n cranky

LOL

I found stuff i can't found nowhere (like the maybe intro translation set), in the Usenet section, so i'm happy =)
The space of my keyboard launched the post before i have finished it, that's why the edit. lol XD

Hello everyone..

Well Ive been reading a lot in forums regarding about the situation with UG and I found recommendations that point to this wonderful site. I've been downloading and seeding a lot of Neorage, Winkawaks, Rocknes and Zsnes Roms since, so I don't think I have something new or much to offer, but if someone needs it I can seed it too.. Anyway, I think I found it too late that UG was gone, been away from gaming since I have to start a new life with my family. I'm glad to be here and I hope this site won't be taken down.

Cheers guys,

Yan2

PS if someone could give me access to the tracker, it'll be very much appreciated. thanks.

Hi to all,

Good to find a site like my resent favorite that is now gone. I am a crazy amiga fan. Hours and hours of Sensible Soccer and the rich library of platformers. While a big fan I only recently discovered amiga emulation and oh boy has that put a smile on my face. Looking forward to the day my son asks for a game of Fifa and I get the opportunity to show him how to curve that ball in SWOS. 1 joystick, 1 button and hours of fun.

Later!

Hey,

Amiga1200 recommended me this place while discussing on emuxtras.net.

I'm mainly a big Amiga fan but of course I also enjoy other systems. I run my games on the good old xbox and through RCB/XBMC on my mac.

Good to find such a nice place,

You are all on the the xbox1 yes that was a awesome console with so great modding possibilitys :)

I sold my xbox1 when the 360 launched.. After all Im still not that happy about this years later.

But with Mini PCs I have today much fun with emulators on a Plasma TV and its like having the old consoles on the TV again...

Amiga was an awesome computer with so many great games and ....  I only had a amiga 500 but that was a great computer...

Hello All... I am of course new here, and would like an invite to the tracker, I will PM one of the advertisers of course.

But to introduce myself, I have been a trader for many many years, I used to run private pirate FTP servers back before the days of torrents. I was a member of UnderGround-Gamer for years and years, before the shocking news ( darn FIFA ).

I was also a member of their sister site BitGamer before it went under.

I occasionally still use PleasureDome. And I am a member at IPTorrents, TorrenTing, and SceneTime... If anyone has questions about my ability to seed, and maintain excellent ratios please refer to one of these sites. I have a minimum of 10x on each, 40x on some... same nick used here, is used on each site.

I have been in agony since UG went down, lol... I am kicking myself for never taking the time to fill out my optical collections... i had the storage, the bandwidth and the ratio to do it, and I simply never took the time.

I do not use a seedbox, I have built my own torrent server at home on dedicated hardware. I have a 50/5MBit line, and the server is never offline, except for power outages ( so many thunder storms overhead ).

My first and only console was a 2600. I never played any other console games again, until I was in my 40's and wondered about all the RPGs I missed over the years. From the early 80's on I played PC games ( back when Apples were still Personal Computers, and Tandys had real market share ). So I am trying desperately to recapture all those un-wasted hours and thus, have become a serial Retro Gamer.

I mostly play on my WiZ, Caanoo, and Pandora, and sometimes on Android devices; My Yinlips 18A recently fried, and I broke some solder in my JXD S7300B, but my S5100 (not B )is still kicking.

I hope this counts as an introduction. Thanks for your time...

HI everyone, my name is law, I've been around gaming since the snes, atari, genesis era. I got into retro gaming around the time the dreamcast was launched and the carried on to this day.

Hi all,

atm I'm more a silent reader but with my Wii Game passion I want to become more an active user.

I hope I found a place where I could also share some games of my collection.
To all other people here in the forum who share, upload and help members like me - you have my absolutely respect - big thanks!

Cheers

Hi all,

I'm Germini I liked all computer stuff I used to have a Helbreath Server, and I liked always roms since I was young like 8-10 years old.
Now as a young adult I'm trying to complete collections of the different consoles. I used to play some GB, GBC o SNES roms on my 133Mhz computer.  I couldn't have all the roms I would like but now is different with 12Mb internet connection and a good capacity for storage ^_^
My next plan is to build an HTPC to play all my games that I collected from the couch.
I have a Wii and I started to collect many wii games since they were released in the common megaupload links. After that there were many emulator ports to Wii and Wii scene has keep growing up specially with Wii U which can work with Wii files and memory.

I have an account in Demonoid (reborning) and IPTorrents where I'm currently a member. I discovered this site and I'm guessing it would be a really good place to share with you.  I leave my laptop on almost everyday.

Greetings,
Germini

Hi everyone.  I have caught the rom collecting bug and I have been looking to fill out some of my collections.  I have been active at that other site "PD" and have decided to branch and explore your site.  I also recently built my own arcade cab from scratch here is the link to my cabinet project at the arcade controls forums.  http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,130551.0.html

Welcome to the forums, mate..

Got my own cabinet also, fully working, but mine Is an Original, and not as pretty as yours...Its a yucky green...lol

Also, halfway through building a Pinball cabinet......Its the monitors, that have slowed me down...need a spare $600 or so, for a 40 inch LCD.

Anyway, friendly helpful bunch of fellas here...

Please contribute where you can......give, and you shall receive..

Hey there! I was a member at UG and BG for several years. Pretty much ended up being my two favorite sites on the web. I not only enjoyed the content there, but the community itself was very friendly and uploaded a ton of exclusive content that couldn't be found elsewhere.

I discovered RS during a search for the [Redump.org] Nintendo Wii dat files. I highly appreciate that you guys provide the updated dat files on your forums without having to be a member of the tracker as this has helped me immensely in keeping my collection up to date.

I have my doubts of a legitimate return for either UG or BG, and so I've set off looking for my replacement of both sites. RS seems like to be the place to do it, so now I'm here!

I am a retro gamer and collector for almost a decade now. My special interest is on older consoles (e.g. SNES, SMD), Commodore and DOS as these cover the playing experiences in my past.

As this board was recommended by a former PD member, I hope this would be a good stage for updating my sets while contibuting my seeds to the community.

Hi fellow RS members!

Registered some time ago after the death of UG, and after atreyu187 giving me some directions about where maybe he would continue to post his related Dreamcast work, as well as comradesnarky's (ReviveDC) and MILF's (DC Clean Merge Project), but never had the time to investigate RS deeper until today.

Been private-torrenting for some years now - in addition to others, I've been on UG, bG, BCG and I'm on GGn and PD (not very active on the latter though, due to the slow connection I've at the moment that makes it kind of hard to get the huge PD packs).

I'm mainly interested on Sega stuff, specially Dreamcast and Master System as these are/were my youth systems (besides DOS/Windows PC), but I love to game every other retro system every now and then besides those.

Despite my slow home connection (should upgrade to optic fiber soon), I'm a daily active seeder on various trackers (not only gaming trackers), and while I'm not the most active IRC user, I know how to seed back, to maintain ratios, avoid Hit n' Runs and to respect rules, so I'd love to be given a chance of becoming a ROM Shepherd tracker user.

I can say that I'm a newbie when it comes to .dat files and to ROM management apps, like clrmamepro, ROMVault, etc, but and if needed, with some dedication and time I learn fast (been managing my ROM collections directly from my torrent client - uTorrent - combined with a folder structure).

I know that UG's successor is about to be launched soon, but my interest on ROM Shepherd will be maintained active as I like to keep my self up to date on multiple trackes and to cross-seed and upload whenever possible.
I have a considerable amount of content downloaded from UG, and that I could share here on Rom Shepherd if not already uploaded.

Thanks  ;D

Hello all,
Just getting back into retro gaming and emulation after being away for several years or so :)  The last version of Mame I really played with was the first to support chds so I'm guessing that was around 2006ish.

So I wandered over here looking to get my collection back into shape.  Looks like a nice community built up around sharing, so it's good to be here.

So over the time it's gotten huge but still there is much to get out there. Which is reason Number 1 i'm here now. As far as i can see this is a very good community for these retro things and so i hope to find missing stuff here. But of course if i can i will help out with stuff too.

Hope thats enough for a first statement. :)

I do have good ratios with BC as I have two NAS' that can seed till the candles burn out.....or the hard drives for that matter :P

Welcome all new members...

Thankyou for taking the time to Introduce yourselves..

Tracker Invites are available......seeding Is ESSENTIAL..

Please contact myself, or one of the other Moderators, WITH THE NECESSARY INFORMATION, Including an EMAIL ADDRESS, and some PROOF OF ACTIVITY, on other torrent sites, to "Apply" for an Invite.

I still have quite a few Invites to hand out, but I have tightened the screws a little, and am keeping them for those that take a bit of time to read the forums, and make some effort to become a member of this community..

So...some Homework, by "yourself" may well pay off....

Hai!

Just looking for anything related to the Tandy/Memorex VIS (it's based on Modular Windows, would be interesting to reverse such things), noticed some isos were in tosec, realised they weren't in many places, found a link to here, and registered!

So hopefully if I get invited to your tracker i can start seeding such things.

Hi,

Hoping for an invite, I'm an ex UG member.

Mostly interested in older stuff like DOS and MAME.

Thanks

Hello betakoopa. RS is not a general retro gaming tracker in the sense you were accustomed to on UG. The torrents here are a mix of sets supported through dat work and for specific emulators (such as builds of MAME/MESS, VPinball), incomplete representations thereof created in response to fill requests, and the occasional item considered more practical to deliver through bittorrent than the forums. You won't find a list of PC/DOS torrents with fancy descriptions and content feedback around here, or the rich community factor that made UG the place to be. This will soon be available again of course, just not here.

*Edit: I searched DOS, and got 1 dead 2-parter, which happened to be a repack of a set widely available elsewhere. We're OK on the MAME front though, but so is PD.

Post by: mrpijey on January 02, 2014 - 07:45:08
Hello everyone! It's nice to finally have found a nice spot where rom collectors meet up, I've read and seen this community mentioned before many times but not taken the step to join it until now!

I am a long time collector of software, not only roms but also all kinds of computer software. I've been collecting now for oh, some 15 years, with tbe beginnings from long before torrents and where the only viable place was through private FTP sites and usenet. And I am still an avid collector even when priorities often takes me elsewhere these days.

At the same time I am also co-running a different kind of collector site, one that collects all kinds of abandonware. We have not yet dipped into console roms but we will soon. For the time being we collect a lot of beta material (for all consoles and computer platforms) and we are currently in the process of reshaping ourselves as a true preservation site, with abandonware as main focus, to preserve an important part of our computer history, which does include gaming console software and vintage computer software (which includes betas of course).

So what takes me here? Well, naturally to find a new source to calm my never-ending twitch of a collectors nerve, but also to find new friends, new knowledge and new ideas when it comes to collecting and saving these precious tidbits. I used to hang a lot on the unfortunately now gone UG (Underground Gaming, RIP!) as it was a fantastic source of vintage software, I am not aware of anything like it today. I am also an avid member of various private trackers such as SceneAccess, TorrentBytes, IPTorrents and PleasureDome, which is currently my main source of collecting console material. My systems, storage servers (nor bandwidth) never sleep here and with a good gigabit connection I always keep far off on the positive side of seeding as well :). My main collectors are TOSEC as well as No-Intro, but also a lot of custom collections I've assembled over the years. The whole collection spans some 30-40TB or so (never counted really!) and it increases every day.

It's great to be here and I hope I can be of any help by doing my part to contribute to this community!

Have a great start on the new year!

Hi There .... and a happy new year of emulation.
collecting roms since 1999 (my 1st 56k modem) - one of my first bookmarks was mame.dk and the first rom was donkey kong.
since then some of my favorite rom sources died (bg,ug).
Could this be a place for my "non safe" Hyperspin packs?
Some member names sound familiar to me - think I'm not the only UG refugee here.

hmm ..  thought about the daphne pack (Digital Leisure stuff that is not safe on PD) and my NDS WIP when finished.
without artwork its only some roms.

The idea is rising the scope of Hyperspin (is this right in english?). I mean as an advert for HS to attract more emumaniacs.
Could not find any upload rules here - or do you think it would bother the (really great) Hyperspin Community?

edit:
PD has also no artwork - so art should not be uploaded without asking for permission from HS before

Hi all, lots of old rom collecting friends I see!  Just like to check in and see what's new and what the latest and only accurate way of ripping ISOs is  ;)

It's been a long time and many failed HDDs (and two children) since I was a huge collector, but as soon I get here, that old itch returns....  At least HDDs are cheaper these days.

Anyhow, nice to see some old friends from IRC and various forums around the net, look forward to meeting some new ones.

Hi,

let me introduce myself :)  I started with a C64 when I was 6 years old and the virus of gaming infected me till today (37). I owned nearly every console from Atari, GameGear, Lynx,NEO-GEO AES.... When I had my first apartment I upgraded my inventory with an arcade machine and 3 pinballs ( Lethal Weapon, Whirlwind, Indiana Jones). Today having a wife and two kids the arcade machine is still left ;) I am currently setting up my living room pc with XBMC, Hyperspin and BigPicture from Steam.

Greetings

Hi everyone,

I started as an NES gamer and then mainly played PC games. And then came... MAME! The MAME spark ignited a retro-collecting spree which has been going on for the last 10 years. I also was an Underground Gamer member (ug21)

Hope I can stick to this community the way I stuck in UG's

Greetings, everybody!  I'm a previous member of underground-gamer trying to rebuild my GoodTools sets after a pretty nasty hardrive crash.

If you guys are into obscure DOS games, or old 68k mac games (I even have some of those old CD packs) let me know.  I have tons of that stuff.

Looking forward to be a part of a gaming community that is about archiving the games that could be lost in time, not just pirating a bunch of stuff that we could easily get on steam sales.

Pleasure to meet you all.  Let's play some games!

Hey everybody.  Procyon here, been a long time lurker.  I think some of you may recognize the handle.  Was a contributor on old emuChina, and later UG.  If you really want to go all the way back, I date back to #SNES during the mid 90s on the IRC.  I've never really been a "release" kind of guy, but I've tried to help with fills, and technical/emulator issues.  I used to maintain the command.dat for MAME until it fell out of favor. 

These days, I currently own and operate StrategyWiki.org and I'm responsible for the 3D voxel engine demo in FCEUX (see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCeFpLMn3sc) I'm a family man now so my time to contribute is limited, but I'd love to help wherever I can.  Thanks for maintaining one of the last standing bastions for ROM collectors.

I've been out of the emulation world for a few years, and thought it would be fun to get back into it. I'm not 100% sure how I found RS, but I'm very glad that I did. I can see I've missed a lot.

Hello RS!!! I registered my account one year ago or more, but I was focused on my law master so I didn't have free time. Fortunately, I'm on holidays so I can get into videogames and rom collecting again. You may know my nick as I'm most of the day on irc channel.

I was member of UG, and currently active on PB, GG, BCG and the new BG. I love downloading full sets and discovering hidden gems of every system. My favourite console is PSX, GBA on handhelds.

Greetings.

Hello all, it is nice of people to pop in for greetings. Chips and DIP all around :)

I want to take a second reinform that this 'new bG' is a knock-off.  In parlance, it is NOT the real McCoy, despite how much belief some may have in the obverse.  None of the original staff or prominent membership were part of the creation of this site.  It was expected that someone would put on the skin of the dead animal and ask for donations, but that the site is actually functional surprised many of us.  The admin himself was nearly skinned alive when he came forth to defend his reasoning in a transient UG refugee forum.  I don't think he tried to bring any former staff on board, and he intentionally neglected to inform users of his site's 'unofficial' status until after account creation--hallmarks of a phishing scam or honeypot.  I am obviously still quite wary of its existence, though I suppose it is considered good fortune that he had put this site up and continues to run it, despite the very shady way he went about it.  Investigation revealed he paid some random public forum Joe cheap to hack up the old skin's original logo, and it shows if you look close enough... if he had asked us, we could have done it better for free!  :'(

Enough of that, Welcome to the fake Elektronorgtechnica collective!  ;D

Hi!

After UG went down I am happy that I finally found this place. My first computers were from Commodore and Amstrad. I prefer the real thing ;-) But as addition I like emulation too.

Kind regards

P.S.: I hope to get an invite to the tracker one day...

I'm new here. It 'the first time you enter a site that deals with emulation in general. Until now I have only participated in a forum that dealt with the Nintendo DS, but there was talk of others more than anything else. I'm 20 years who are fond of emulators. I hope to meet other enthusiasts.

We all love to reminisce about our gaming conquests and any place that aims to preserve that nostalgia is somewhere I hope to belong, so here is a little info about me.

My earliest memories include playing classics such as magic pockets, sensible soccer and speedball. I remember being simply addicted to lotus turbo challenge and road rash: nothing beat the thrill of hunting down the top dogs, either for their bounty or to simply smack them over the head with a nun-chuck. It wasn’t until I played the earlier final fantasy series that I became an avid rpg fan.

Unfortunately with an increasing lack of free time I’ve not been able to keep on top of the emulation scene, however after learning about dat files and private trackers I hope I can finally sort my jumbled rom folders and get back into gaming.   

Thanks for reading :D

Sorry ill explain, i have been a member of PD and have a great ratio but the torrent i was after wouldn't download because i haven't uploaded enough. So on the off chance it was on another site i simply copied the name and searched Google and this popped up. Decided to register so i could get the download link which was blocked until i registered. Then i found out its part of your tracker that is invite only, so i decided to say hi while i looked around the forum to see what this site is, sorry if i offended you, believe me that was not my intention.

So now i know what this site is and how to get an invite im going to go and see if i can get one, thank you.

Hello, I am a new member here, looking for downloads mainly for Nintendo systems, but hoping to complete at least no-intro and goodsets. I would also like to chat about various nintendo stuff, or generally any gaming stuff. I hope that I can also help, either with files that are missing, and I somehow have them, or by seeding.
I am mostly a Nintendo fan, having played a lot of pokemon, mario, kirby, etc. and I also love star wars, played a lot of those games. Other than that its a mess of stuff that got my attention, but I know about a lot of stuff that I have not played.
I love obscure peripherals and strive for 100% complete emulators and flash cartridges, but none of these except BSnes.

To ALL new members, requesting an Invite to the tracker..

Be aware, that some proof of activity, on other trackers, Is required, as part of the Invite process....as Is a legitimate email address..

If you have no experience, on other trackers, or no proof of such, I will not hand out any Invites willy nilly...

If you have only made a single post, In this situation, I will consider your request, however, I really have nothing to go on, other than good faith, and we all know what that Is worth on the nets.....so, I would suggest, before requesting an Invite, people start posting/helping/requesting/whatever......and at least get their post count up, before they request an Invite..

It Is no good, asking me for an Invite, In this situation......because everyone knows Im a soft touch, but I am trying to do my very best, by this site, and protect It...especially from leeching bastards, who care only about their own sets, and nothing about the tracker or other peoples bandwidth..

If thats what you do...then kindly leave this forum, and go to kickass torrents, or some place like that..

Please do not be offended, If I have not replied, or an Invite has not been sent....

You can request again, maybe at a time, when you have a little more ammunition, and have made some attempt, to make yourself known on the forum..

Or...maybe join our IRC channel.....and start chatting..

I am sorry about this, but unless I receive different Instruction, thats how It Is..

Finally.....If you have found this site of use...maybe it has saved you some time, and you have completed some sets that have been Incomplete for years, then please consider sending TC, some "Beer Money"

Cheers

Hi from Australia,

Long Long-time mamer.  In fact I even used the old system8 emulator for Wonder Boy that had no sound back in the day.  Two days later I rang around and bought and old cocktail cabinet with bootleg Wonder Boy which I eventually converted to MAME 0.67

First console was the NES which I got for my 12 birthday.

Not a massive PC gamer per say... but I do still love the old console games I grew up with.

Now I just wish I spent more playing old skool games rather than collecting roms set.  Hmmm... may need to lay on the couch and have a psych asse$$ me! :P

Hi Everyone!

I started Emulation when I discovered a spectrum emulator on a friends 486DX2 66 in 1994. He was playing manic miner at about 1000% speed (with no framelock) :D I was amazed that a PC was playing Speccy games! I had an Amiga 1200 at the time and found a fairly good C64 Emu for it, had some good fun with that but soon found Amiga's didn't have much at that time for Emulators.

Roll on a few years (1998ish) and I ended up with a PIII 500MHz PC. Re-discovered Emulation and found MAME... WOW! I was blown away! I delved deep into the emulation world and found all the cool DOS emulators for Megadrive (Genesyst) SNES (ZSNES) PC Engine (Magic Engine) and so on. I became hooked on collecting romz and ammassed quite a collection (I frequented ftp's and built up my collection manually until Rom Managers such as ClrMAMEpro and RomCenter appeared).

But then in 2001 Disaster struck, my whole collection was lost when my then massive 40GB HDD failed... I had no backup.... Years worth of DL'ing gone. This was at a time where the average speed on 56k was 2.5KB sec. I was gutted and basically floated away from hardcore collecting.

I have been keeping a casual eye on MAME since then and I even built my own arcade hybrid Chest/cabinet (using DOS MAME0.79, I like how quick it boots with DOS and its rock solid stable) in 2008 which is still going strong https://plus.google.com/photos/+LesRailton/albums/5506865982043039425

Over the last few years I went back to real hardware (Neo Geo, PC Engine, Amiga, Dreamcast to name a few) and have enjoyed hacking them a bit and collecting real games too :) I'm known over on www.amibay.com for my crazy A1200 hardware hacks/mods.

But recently I have re discovered emulators and how incredibly accurate some of them have become! Especially for the 8 and 16 Bit Nintendo and Sega machines.

So I bought myself a 4TB External HDD and I'm gradually filling it up with collections again! I have ROM Vault loaded on there to do all the sorting and at the moment I have decided to start off with No Intro sets. I'm getting a fair way through it now and soon I will be collecting Arcade and TOSEC. Eventually I'd like to get more HDD's and venture into the wonderful world of ISO! :)

I intend to build a PC MiniITX form factor, dedicated to running emulators and my hope is to make it work with as many different systems as possible :)

Anyway, thanks for reading :)

Re: Tracker Invites.

http://romshepherd.com/index.php/topic,1534.0.html

Ill tell ALL new members straight....DONT ask me If you do not Intend seeding, or are just using this site, for your own nefarious purposes..

I do not know, many of you, personally, and It takes a degree of trust, to send an Invite..so dont let me down.

At minimum, I EXPECT, a current screenshot of a tracker account, showing activity elsewhere, and I will need your email....before an Invite can be sent.

Frankly, I am sick of having 3 or 4 PMs, to get someone on the tracker, when a single one should suffice..

It aint Rocket Science, and I know noobies are like kids In a Toyshop here, but please think, before you send the PM, and SUPPLY THE REQUIRED INFORMATION...

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!

Hello, I'm new here, I tried to get a bit in touch in forums before asking for an invite, but everything seems very quiet except for posts related to the tracker.

Because I got by chance back into emulation world (thanks to hyperspin) I began to renew my roms. I only download what I like (not full romsets, etc) but there are a few random dumps I never managed to get. PD tracker is a bit silly I need to upload a few hundreds of Gb before "downloading" a romset torrent from which I only want 1 or 2 games. So I'm looking for a reference place that is not that strict.

I'm currently looking for some (among a few more) GameCube Redump isos that are not yet available on emuparadise.
That and Wii probably later on.

Well Macca38, sorry, I even tried to find a thread about invites, but I didnt found one (maybe I didnt searched correctly?) so I asked here. Maybe a "noob friendly" thread pinned with these kind of info could help?

Hi Lelygax (and all other new members),

Welcome to rom shepherd and I hope your stay is a long and fruitful one. You mention a "noob friendly" pinned thread which is what Macca38 has actually pointed you towards. This topic is posted above the tracker url post which people would have to go to, to actually get to the tracker information, so I'm not sure what more the site owner or moderators could do to make it more obvious. Would you, or any other new member for that matter, have any suggestions that could help us improve the site/tracker?

Happy collecting/dumping/verifying  ;D

Post by: edc on May 03, 2014 - 18:13:15
To all the 'Noobs': try the new torrents thread. There is a pinned thread which explains everything.

Personally I hate to invite unknown members, I'd like to be a bit more familiar with the requesting 'members'.

If you just want a leeching account, dont PM any of us..

If you are sincere.... welcome!!

Hello everyone,

Chacer here.  I am a long time emu player (I think I started messing with Mame in 1998? or so) and I have contributed to Daphne as well way back when but I haven't touched it since it decided to go commercial, but Daphne got me in a collecting Arcade Laser Discs of which I have many and even a working player or two to build into a cabinet one day.

Hoping this place will be a fun place to get me back in to emu stuff after a long break.  I have excellent ratios on other emu sites as I have the time and patience to just leave seeds up for a long time. 

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!  Glad to be here.

I've been wandering for the past few months looking for a good retro tracker. I'm one of the many Underground-Gamer refugees.
Last year I found home in Blackcats Games, and especially HDDX. But those trackers are dead at the moment :(

Whose ass I have to kiss to get an invite 'round here? :D
just kidding, I'm active in a couple of trackers... if someone wants to give me a chance, just let me know and I will send a couple of ratio proofs.

Hiljak, hi!  I'm a vpforums member too... came here looking for a better way to exchange vp tables than to deal with the single file downloads over on vpforums.  It's a great site and I love the admin (he helped me understand configuring VP9, and that resulted in many hundreds of hours of family gametime)... but the flow of data is far too slow for a collector like me.

If you would like to share tables and roms sometime send me a PM and we can maybe btsync our collections or something... I am seeding a couple pinball related torrents here, but I have a little bit of other stuff I've picked up that I could throw in, too.

For some reason I still had hope the issues would eventually be solved since the admin kept stalling us with "soons" & "almosts", even set maintainers and active dumpers were treated with little regards (I think I know why now but I don't want to say anything about it publicly). Then I've been told the most important members moved here and were seeing no reason to go back. I guess the admin fucked himself up, RIP hdd*.

All this is quite new (dat files, the sets, .... ), and i may be getting quite old for all this  :-\ , so i've been hanging arround reading posts and trying to get some sets completed.
But i may need some help soon... ;)

Hey all!  I just stumbled on this site after seeing the Rom Shepherd name while doing some Usenet searches and trying to complete some of my sets.  It seems like you guys have a wonderful community/resource going on here, and I hope I'm some day able to help somebody out as much as the Rom Shepherd Usenet uploads have helped me.

I've been collecting for close to 20 years or so now, but even after just browsing around on the forum here I see I have A LOT to learn about collecting properly.  I've never really used DAT files before with my sets, so at the moment I'm kind of lost with some of the terminology in some of the posts.  But as a completionist, I look forward to learning how to collect properly. 

I traditionally stick to just Usenet as opposed to Bit Torrent, so I don't think I really have that impressive of a ratio on another tracker to try and get access to the RS tracker.  Am I going to have trouble completing things or helping out without access to the RS BT stuff?

Thanks for everything.
Title: Re: New forum member? Low or zero post count? Read this.
Post by: Macca38 on June 17, 2014 - 05:08:07
Firstly, welcome to all new members...

We are still a relatively small community here..

If you are new to torrenting, thats fine, but It does make things a little harder, as those who can give Invites, have to rely on Blind Faith, and HOPE, that any member they give access to, will do the right thing.

Im a softie, having done this for so long myself, fighting absolute shit bandwidth, and have collected most of my sets, with patience, doing It the hard way, so I "try" and give new members a bit of a go...and "learn em" If I have to.

However, Ive had to harden up, quite dramatically, as people will often tell you what they think you want to hear, simply to get what they want....and take any advantage to do so...

I havent actually checked, but I do know, that some I have Invited, have stuffed up on the tracker, and now have their accounts disabled, simply because they removed the torrents from their client, rebuilt the files, and now no longer have those files, so as they can be given a chance, and start sharing again.

I get quite angry, when someone I have trusted, and given a go, LETS ME DOWN, so If youve noticed differences In my mannerisms....then theres the reason.

As I understand things, Ratio Is not totally enforced here, due to small membership.....and FACT Is, and lets be honest, RATIO, IS A PONZI SCHEME!!

I believe a better method, which Is the one employed on the RomShepherd tracker, Is to count the number of hours and minutes, a person seeds, AFTER COMPLETION, and to have a minimum seeding requirement, policed by a script....which Is how our tracker works...

TC, and his fellow super mods, have been very generous In working this out, so anyone who does the right thing, and Is basically willing to seed as long as possible, until the torrent becomes a nuisance, to them, will not be flagged. I have been told this amount, Is 72 hours total, but the longer the better.

I also believe, there should be a rule, about leaving a torrent, with a minimum number of seeds, taking time seeded, Into account, which I see on other torrent sites.....but at this time, there Isnt, but you never know...

YES, a screenshot upon application for Invite, helps GREATLY, and proves that you know what seeding means, and that you are less of a risk of doing wrong..

Remember...ALL bandwidth, shared on the tracker, comes from people, just like you and me...

Only difference Is, maybe they have a job that allows them to purchase a better ISP account In their country, or a seedbox.....but Its still bandwidth, they are privately supplying, so to take without giving back, Is In effect, stealing, and Is In no way fair..

And the proof they really dont care, probably have unlimited bandwidth, Is that ratio Is not enforced.....they simply want others, to"HELP" them, Instead of them doing all the lifting, and as many of these same large seeders, do datfiles and make collections, It gives them more time to do this sort of stuff.....so help them seed!

Finally...as new members come here, If they find the site useful, after a time, please donate, to the BEER FUND...

This site, Is fueled by BEER, WINE, and/or SPIRITS, apparently....LOL

Cheers

I suppose I should say hi like a normal person would. Hi, I'm darksabre76 (Matt) and I'm relatively new to collecting. I'm only in my mid-20's so I haven't had much of a chance to enjoy the classics. That's all changing now as I'm finally unleashing my joy of collecting into games. I don't expect to have the time or commitment for asking about tracker stuff for quite a while, so I'll be fine hunting and pecking with the occasional ask. It was nice to find this community and I look forward to being just as obsessively collective as some of you are  :)

Hi everyone!

I was a VIP back in the days of UG (a bit over a year ago with the same name) and not terribly active in rom-collecting and ISO collecting as much I should/want to be as I am a busy guy (fiance, job and school) but I mainly collect Redump and No-Intro and hope to update my sets for my HTPC which is ready for most emulators and PC games for that matter just wish I had my surround sound and a bigger TV! But with that said, I got an invite from maddope and I am quite grateful. With that said, I almost always keep my PC running 24/7 and hope to seed quite a bit.

Updating a few redump sets (US GCN and PS1) and not far off from where I was before... looking forward to seeding them soon!

Pleased to be part of the community. I'm saddened when I think about all the communities that have been shut down over the past year or so, like UG and HDDX. I'm happy to see this community thrive, as there aren't too many like this left (as far as I know).

Hello all! I joined this community today, and am looking forward to help you all with sharing
my bandwidth in order to preserve the fantastic material you all appear to offer. ;D

I have been a long time gamer, collector, and overly appreciative of all the hard work
people did, and are doing in order to maintain all these great games, and additional content.

Like many members here probably are, I myself am very much an archivist and completionist,
and absolutely love to fiddle around with documents in order to make neat lists of games
with additional information, and what not.

Also, since I discovered Hyperspin and MAME I've been putting quite a lot of time into those
projects as well. And as it currently stands I am far from done. But the knowledge I have
attained over the many years of playing around with both computers/consoles and videogames
in general, I cannot wait to share with whoever asks for help. And it is certain you can all teach

Hello, peeps. Nyoobie here.

I'm a hardcore old school gamer and ROM collector. I prefer to play retro games on real hardware with flash carts, SD cards, and hard drives--Mega Everdrive, Open PS2 Loader, etc. You know the score.

All your ROM are belong to us.

An avid gamer in the 80's would put you in your 40's.
How the hell have you managed to retire?

...or did I miss understand your post? Just asking friendly. :)

I've been drawn in to watching all episodes/seasons of 'Breaking Bad', and I'm currently thinking this is a good way to retire also - $7.5mil / year...?

Hello world,

I joined the forum in 2012... But I come back recently along with my  new project : I am the proud owner of more than 10 arcade cabinets including a twin seats virtua racing machine.... But I am currently building up from scratch a HD mame/multi console 30" led ....
So I come to back to my roms collections, cleaning sets, updating chd, etc....

And romshepherd is still on top...

Regards .. Nice to meet you...

Philco 67.... Yes 47 year old guy
Title: Re: New forum member? Low or zero post count? Read this.
Post by: Macca38 on August 24, 2014 - 12:31:38
Dont tell too many people Philco...lol

Just joking....please tell your "Quality" friends..

The majority of members here, have no Idea, and think we are a small site...

Maybe small In stature, but BIG, In quality members, many of whom willingly devote time, bandwidth and even money, to the cause..

THATS WHY WE HAVE QUALITY FULL TORRENTS, AND ARE OFTEN THE FIRST SITE, TO COMPLETE NEWLY RELEASED SETS...

The only other site comparable, especially for fixes, Is RR and It Is much bigger IMO...

This Is a "Collectors Forum" for those with a true love of the Scene, many of whom have been doing It longer than my 20 years, and thats why Its so good..

Im Jealous of your cabinets, mate...I only have one, but Its an ORIGINAL Leisure And Allied...not cheap craftwood.

How about a few pics, for our forum, In the appropriate section, seeing as you value RomShepherd, enough to use the sets on your very precious cabinets..

Which Ill say, once again, Im jealous...lol

And, Welcome back Stranger!

Cheers

Hello to all.

I write this post to introduce myself and say hello to everyone in this great place.

I am glad I discovered this place.
I am a big fan of classic video games, especially arcade and 16 bits video consoles, and too 8bits, though not at the same level.

I'm using MAME for many years, which was the one who introduced me to the fantastic world of emulation.

I hope to have a good time in this fantastic site.


Kind regards!

just popped in to see what's what. (not after tracker account renewal)
good to see some old familiar faces, and frontend changes. (and lold HARD at the 'updatted files' category, nice twist, adds to the humor) good to see that nasty 'rep/karma' system obliterated.  8)
no longer am i tied to staffing **, had to go with own interests.
didn't seem right to create a SPAM/intro subject, this one does just fine.  :P
still have ALL my tech, including a few additions.
able to back up my retails in true 1/1 fashion, as the 'law' intended, just not sussed how to achieve this with xbox/360 yet...that doesn't involve a kreyon ide computer drive OR a flashed 360 drive. (sad no apps exist to do bba/lan pings, like dreamcast and gamecube)
...
well, that's it really.
as deep as a two pence coin laid flat, same as ever. (consistency is one thing left in life for most, no plans to change.)
see you around ladies, and i hope i DON'T run into the same 'political correctness' i stumbled into at ********* forums. a lot can change, but some things DO remain the same. got a good feeling here.)  ;D

Dont ask for access, or Invites or ANYTHING, In the public forum.

Offending posts will be removed.

Post by: Macca38 on October 22, 2014 - 11:50:58
OK..Here I go...I may offend some people, but I dont care..

Im sure others will agree with me...and, besides.....

I AM THE GATEKEEPER!!

A few new members I am noticing on the forum...however, my pet peeve as well as my blood pressure are rising to the surface..

I was brought up a country lad, and manners, were Instilled from an early age..

A please, and/or a Thankyou were never out of place...

Total respect for adults, and no cheekiness as kids, or look out when dad got you home..

Anyway...new members...first post, asking for fixes, and you couldnt even take the time to Introduce yourselves, say hi...

Nah...lets get straight to business, and rape and pillage whatever we can, because we are Impatient fucks, and we want It and we want It now...

YOU, totally disrespect our hard working members, and this site, when you treat the forum this way, and you disrespect our members good names, when I see posts like..."Missing Blah Blah" without a "Please, can someone help me", In the post, or often not even gone to the trouble to learn how to provide a fixdat..

Some of you guys, better start learning some basic manners, and how to ask for something In a respectful manner, as a NOOBIE.....or Im gonna start hardening up pretty bad, and calling you out Individually In the forums, and I can get rather cranky...

I dont like you disrespecting this site, and I am CERTAINLY protective of our hard working members, and dont like seeing their good natures abused..

So...NOOBIES.....READ THIS....INTRODUCE YOURSELVES......SHOW SOME MANNERS ON THE FORUM, and STOP TREATING THIS PLACE, LIKE A DO DROP IN, for your green tick hit..

This Is ROMSHEPHERD......so show some respect please..

NOT, RR!!

It Is, rather rude, to come here, rape every link on the site....then ask for re uploads, or fixes, when you cant even Introduce yourself, and shows me, that you dont really want to be a part of the forum community.....you just want the files!

Frankly, I dont want members here, like that, who all they care about, are thembloodyselves..

If youre offended by this post...BAD LUCK!

Maybe youre one of the ones I am talking about.....who wouldnt know good manners, If It kicked you In the face..

PLEASE THINK....before you get all "excited" about the possibilities available on this GLORIOUS little site....and show It some RESPECT!

YOU ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOO LUCKY......to be here!

Cheers

Post by: spogghi on October 22, 2014 - 19:33:22
Hello everybody, I'm Giacomo, and I'm from Rimini in Italy.

When I was a young boy there was an arcade on the waterfront and I spent there many evenings of my holidays playing with my favorites games with my friends.
Coins:
(http://u.jimdo.com/www27/o/s7432c533393cc560/img/ib23e958dbd2df9fe/1294584138/std/image.jpg)

I started playing with MAME when I was 14; in those days I played with it because I had to improve myself in all those crazy games where my friends always defeat me, but now I play with it to remember those beautiful days when i was free, free from conventions, free from society, free from my thoughts.
Today there are only a few arcades still active in my city, in fact many of them have been turned into Slot and Bingo rooms, also the one where I used to play with my friends in summer; no more funny cabinets for me  >:(.
Related: http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/16/3740422/the-life-and-death-of-the-american-arcade-for-amusement-only (http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/16/3740422/the-life-and-death-of-the-american-arcade-for-amusement-only)

It's always a joy for me to open mame.exe and play my favorite games from the past, and I love sites like this, that help us keep memories alive.

See you around.  ;)

I'm Alessandro from Italy. Start playing with a VIC20 at age 8, now  I'm collecting every rom I found for old computers/console.
My favourite system is Commodore A500 (I own also A1200, VIC20, C46).
My project for the future is to build my own arcade cabinet (for now it's impossible with my 2-year old daughter...)

See you!

Hi everyone! Longtime emulation nerd here! (Anyone remember playing LTTP in beautiful black and yellow on that old Japanese commercial SNES emulator back in the 1996-99 era?) I've been involved in emulation/roms for quite some time, when I was younger I was lucky enough to have the proper equipment to dump carts with from NES/SMS to SNES/Genesis era. While I was in Jr High and High School in the Atlanta area I ran a large 5 node BBS called The Lifeforce Lagoon where I hosted pretty much any "grey area" downloads you can think of, including the biggest ROM collection available at the time that I knew of. The board was also notorious for being the main dumpsite for large "Courrier" groups of the day such as FATE and RiSC, as well as Internet SLIP accounts over my ISDN line for these purposes, the BBS was available via telnet as well and select files via DDC on EFnet IRC. I also ran a large Amiga emulation site that hosted a massive collection of ADFs and such for UAE/WinUAE back in 97-01 or so on good ol' simplenet.com. I do not encourage these activities anymore, but it's where I developed my passion for storage technologies and digital media archiving.

Currently I'm working on long-term multimedia archiving and preservation technologies in hopes of keeping places Archive.org online and backed up for lifetimes. I still play games, but my main use of my personal time is collecting and preserving all of this for future generations, as I see video games as art in the same vein as novels, comic books, television, and movies. I'm working to bring my 4PB of redundant Backblaze pods online that contain pretty much all digital media that I have collected since the late 80's. It's an odd obsession, but the preservation of digital media is very important to me.

Anyway, I've been lurking here for a month or two, and I think I have just about perused every single thread from start to end, you all seem to be a wonderful community that I hope to be a contributing member of. I probably will not have a very high "post count" as I tend not to reply to threads unless I have something of value to contribute, but I feel that I may be able to contribute greatly here.

I also tend to ramble in my posts.....  :P

I'm not new to rom collection, but I've never had the storage capacity to create massive collections, and have never considered it any kind of a social thing.  I don't have any rare ROMs or anything, though I have other odd little old files and games I ripped from their floppies (like, actual floppies, not that 3.5" non-floppy-floppy crap).  I actually have a rather large collection of computer viruses, though I can't imagine anyone wanting those.  Anyhow, I recently purchased a 20 TB redundant raid, and I am determined to fill it; I started by creating a complete MAME 0.157 set (with the CHDs and such), and organizing what other files I have.  If anyone needs a computer virus, just give me a holler.

I am interested in detailing the best versions of every game made!

I finished GBA and recently started going through the Atari 2600. A lot of work. Still need to decide how I want to handle translations and such.

For my project, it is essential to have up to date collections to parse, thus why I am here. Excited to be part of the community here!

10 PRINT "Hello, world!"
20 GOTO 10

Ahh, good old Apple //e Basic!  :D

I've been a gamer all of my life, and I first became interested in emulation about 10-15 years ago.  Sadly, I lost a few hard drives along the way, and lack of space (not to mention having out-of-date computers) caused me to shelve emulation for a while.  At one point, I had most of the Good sets, a collection of MAME, quite a few laserdisc MPEG files for DAPHNE, and various TOSEC sets such as Apple ][.  I don't have anything left from those other than 3 CD-RWs full of MAME roms, and a single CD-RW of N64 roms.  :(

I hope to rebuild my collection again, I'd love to have a dedicated MAME/DAPHNE/console emulation computer one of these days.

Oops sorry, I really did posted here. With all the forum communities popping, i have a hard time keeping tabs at which communities I frequented. Sorry about that. Still I'm new at how stuff works here, the .dat files freak me out and I'm surprised people actually pay attention to even the slightest bits of a file.
I provide PSP rips from Asian communities that I frequented and I saw someone pointed my blog from here.
JRP takes my rip and posed as a psp scene release group, Luckily HR noticed it.
I don't know how scene stuff works, I looked into it but its pretty deep.

I'm going to edit your post further though and remove an unmentionable... as you stated, you don't know how things work around here.
Continue to have a look around and get yourself situated and then perhaps a re-wording of a request can be made in the future.

Hi all. I have been into gaming all the way back to my VIC-20 as a child, and the arcades. I have been into emulation for 10+ years, mostly keeping up with MAME and MESS, and have always had an interest in Commodore stuff.

Lately I have got into collecting (and playing) much more.. no-intro, redump, tosec, exodos, pinball... I have good ratios on pleasuredome and bitgamer and I keep seeding everything I have.

Would love an invite to share my stuff here.

Hi everyone

I've been into in retroconsoles/computers since my first machine as a child (Sharp MZ-700). For the last 10 years or so I have been collecting ROMs every now and then, and for the last 4 I've been collecting most of the DATs i could get my hands on. They really brought new life to my computers/consoles and arcade/pinball cabinet.

I really appreciate all the hard work you guys put into the sets, and I hope I will be able to contribute to the community in the time to come!

Hello all! I just found this site while trying to learn how to use Dat O Matic and rom managers :). Looks like a great little community here!

I just started collecting and refurbishing older game consoles, so I am trying to build up a nice archive of accurate ROM dumps for the systems. Excited to hang out and be a part of this community!

Thanks and happy gaming!

'Ey up! Thought I'd finally poke my head in and say hello. I was one of the flood of refugees back in the dark days when Underground Gamer bit the dust, though rather than getting stuck in to what I now realise is a fantastic little community I let my sulking get the better of me and kind of drifted away from the scene for a while. No longer.

I've been gaming since the latter days of the C64, but the Commodore Amiga was where things really took off for me. The demoscene, the PD libraries, swapping disks by the handful in the playground, and eventually making my first steps in to the world of the BBS. Exciting times. I've owned most systems over the years and while a lack of time and space has meant I've had to thin out the collection in favour of emulation my old Miggy has stayed put and will likely be buried alongside me. :D

Since my gaming tastes are mainly for the 8 and 16-bit days my stash is reasonably complete so I'm here for the community as much as to pad my own ROM collection. If I can help anyone fill in their gaps I'm always glad to help out.

Hello everyone! I'm registered for almost a year now and finally posting for the first time.
I'm a very shy person  :-[, and my english is not very good, and usually most forums don't like if we post short messages that's why I restrain myself from posting.
But this topic encouraged me, I'll try to be more active in the forums. I hope I can help to fill someone's request sometime too^^.

Hey guys - I registered here a while ago, but have been really busy updating my collections, and as such, haven't had a chance to post before now.  I do actually have a small fill request, so I better go get to it!  Thanks for having a large number of fix request subforums - I try to do the best I can on my own, so as not to create unnecessary work for whoever helps me out, but there's just some things I can't fill on my own.

Well, considering I still have a couple sets left that I'm trying hard to fill, I may as well post a forum-related question here.  Does this forum have any rules against "necroposting"/bumping an old fix topic?  I have another incomplete set that I'm trying to fill, but I noticed that the last post in a thread for this particular set, is nearly three years old.  Are we allowed to "necropost" in fix request threads, or should a new topic be created?
Title: Re: New forum member? Low or zero post count? Read this.
Post by: Zandro on June 22, 2015 - 15:31:17
If the set is uncommon or not outdated (you're not missing a stickied NonGood or similar), then you're free to bump, or make your own thread.  We've never had too much of either here to find fault in it.

Post by: Terra_Cresta on June 22, 2015 - 18:19:14
This site is flexible, accommodating and we don't enforce much by way of rules. If you make request, generally if people have what you require then they will help you. Bumping is OK... knock yourself out - it's not like we'll ban you or anything.

Hello everybody,

once upon a time I owned a good old C64, then a C128, than an Amiga. Most of my childhood was accompanied by these computers. I was a user and a hobby developer using assembler and later C (without any noteworthy public releases) Then there was a slow transition to Linux. First there were experiments with Linux using the Amiga 4000 of my brother.  It was much fun but hard work to get the KDE desktop environment up and running on the m68k platform. Finally there was the day I bought conventional PC hardware as there was no more real innovation / progress for the Amiga platform.

I still remember the good old days playing Space Taxi and later Lucas Arts adventures and the days were nobody knew the mouse as an input device and the cruel deaths of my joysticks which did not survive my tortures. The C64 "datasette" is part of my memories I never forget as well as the sound of the 1541 when formatting a disk. When I think of the C64, the hardware requirements of modern software  sound ridiculous. The bootloader of a usual smart phone is probably larger than the KERNAL and BASIC roms together. Keeping in mind what was possible with 64 kiB RAM these days and my current computer feels like a monster

The commodore hardware was special to me. My grey box I own today is supposed to do its work without being anything special. That makes my a little bit sad.

I hope for an interesting time here

Hello everyone. This place is awesome. Started collecting a few years back when I fulfilled my goal of building a cabinet. I am a total beginner when it comes to some of the topics discussed here. I know enough to find the roms and play them, and can do some basic scans to verify my sets. Really interested in learning the basics about dats, checking / validating the roms, and the other topics discussed here.

Hi, everyone! I used to be a member of a now shut down retro gaming site, which I considered one of my favorite sites and I must say after browsing and using this site that I have a new favorite!!! Before the other site closed, I had downloaded some of its rare games, although I am not quite sure that they cannot be found here elsewhere, since it is virtually impossible for me to find something that I have, but has not already been uploaded, but if there is any way I can contribute, say by uploading something that you are after, if I have it, to the effort of the members and the staff to make this community absolutely unparalleled, not even remotely close to any other, please let me know. I would also like to say special thank yous to the administrator of this excellent site. His username is probably known and respected by most people here. Also, I cannot help but notice the friendliness of your site, which makes me want to share a few things about myself, such as that I am from Greece and I love computer and console games, especially retro ones, but also music and movies. I hope my lengthy first post did not tire you :D. Well done, everyone, and thank you for the awesome job you are doing!!!

Dear Shepherds,

Time to say hello in the hello thread. I have been around for a short while as my rom shepherding interests (a mix of nostalgia and a desire for more playing time) have been growing lately. I have been into emulation for a long time, and remember fondly the days of UAE, ZSNES, and UltraHLE. I have always managed a rom collection of some size or another, but now the times are a changin' and it is a sizable treasure trove. I just hope I could spend as much time playing as I spend collecting!

So this place seems like good company for me. I share the deeds and the goals, and look forward to the community exchange. I would very much join the sharing, and would be a generous bandwidth citizen. I recently joined PD (same user name) where I am a purple galaxian.

Cheers.

Been on RS for many months. Browsing trying to learn as much as I can. Well today i finally got off the fence and started scanning and rebuilding roms. Using CLRMame is very daunting but after reading the following post I thought why not.

http://romshepherd.com/index.php/topic,65.msg10965.html#msg10965

So thanks Macca38 for giving me the confidence in starting to be a set collector. Now be interesting how many bad dumps I do have  :o

Hi Guys,

I'm from Switzerland, and I'm old as Pong is '^^
"Emulaficionado" since internet exists, soaring through forums and dedicated website to the most powerful drug ever created (roms), I'm consolidating my collection lost during a burning accident in my old house years ago (note for later: keep the backups in another place). During the following years trying to recover what takes me ages to gather, it's still a real pleasure to meet people also addicted and engaged to make it live as long as possible.
It's cool to introduce new generations to what they never experienced during their young years.... Even my 10 years old daughter is enjoying old arcade games on my Sega New Astro City "MAmed" in my office  ;D

Just fall on this forum, and found the posts very interesting, full of good links and hints.... Keep it on ! It's rare to have good quality of discussions and shared experiences !

Be cool, and don't forget to smile because it's free.

Enjoy your day and..... Happy New Year  :-)

Mike

Nothing to say except....... I need some help.

No problem, I'm quite eager to do so, and whatever is necessary, to participate.
But as I read in the DOOM - Damnation collection thread(my main reason for finding this): "just look at the stickies in this very forum"
Well unfortunately I've been looking for about an hour and
seem entirely unable to even FIND the next "hoop" to jump through! I have run in several circles though.
Yes, I'm blind and retarded, etc etc.
So, little hint, maybe maybe????????

I was always interested in emulation to preserve my favorite videogames/systems, but since I didn't know any dedicated forum/tracker I only used public trackers for GoodTools... until the last month, when I discovered TOSEC and No-Intro and a discussion on this forum on the difference between these datting projects: reading that discussion made me rediscover my love for cataloguing and preserving videogames for the future generations.

I really like the concept of the Fix Requests subforum, helping other people in completing their collections, so I decided to join in your effort.

Hi,

with this post I want to introduce myself to the community on the one hand but mostly publicly apologize for my bad behavior.

I am a registered member from August 2014 but I never took an active part in any discussion.

I feel strong interest in the emulation world and yesterday, driven by the desire to get a set, I posted my first message and this message is basically a request; later, in the same discussion, I referred to some trackers (posts were clearly edited by a moderator) and finally I made an explicit request for access to the torrents section of this community ...

Well, as you can imagine, I was taken by a moderator to whom I have not yet had the opportunity to reply.

For good reason, I have clearly violated the rules of the community, and this has happened for not having first taken note of the Regulation.

I am not inclined to be warned verbally but in this case I admit to being superficial and this does not happen often.

I could make a new record to the forum but it's not my style.

With these few lines I intend to apologize to the community and encourage new members to read before anything else the forum rules; with this post, however, do not feel I have to apologize to the Moderator who warned me as he expressed concepts that I do not share, however, he is absolutely right to have highlighted my misconduct.

Hello guys! I am AsPika3172, also called AsPika2219 or M.AzaryPika3172 on other forum. Anyway, thanks for fixing register forum bug because the activation email was buggy and the message was not showed on my email, either GMail or Yahoo Mail.... Once more, please remove my another account named AsPika2219, just before I register again as AsPika3172, because of some strange bug now. :)

Hello everyone. I'm brand new to all of this, but I've been dying to share my love of 8-bit gaming with my children. I've collected a few roms for use with Kodi, but I have a long way to go towards understanding the best way to archive a collection for generations to come.

Hopefully, I've come to the right place. I look forward to meeting you all!

Hi  aiden_is

Welcome, to you and all new members!

Yep, RomShepherd Is a great start to learn what you need to know..

Ild suggest start reading the forum, get a copy of ClrMame Pro, or RomVault...some datfiles and start collecting..

If you get stuck, ask on the forum, or feel free to PM me, as long as your questions are not too technical

I can handle most questions, except the really techo stuff, and defer that to others on here, with much greater knowledge, as basically, Im just a humble collector, and keep away from technical stuff, by choice,as this Is fun for me, and I dont wish to make It hard work.. ;D

Cheers

Thanks for the response Macca. I have been scrambling around here for the past few hours getting my nzb dl's started. Now that those are running, I'm taking a look at ClrMamePro and RomVault to determine how best to organize everything. I'm looking forward to learning all this, but there's a lot of information to be assimilated. Thankfully this forum seems to be helpful towards those who attempt to research things before asking.  ;)

Oh, and thanks to Zandro for help registering here.

Hello everyone,

I am not new to gaming or collecting roms, but I am new to using forums to help complete my rom sets. I previously relied mostly on trackers, but that had become a bit dodgy as of late. I most collect Nintendo and Sony stuff mostly. I have some various other items of interest for Saga systems, but they are not my focus.

I look forward to learning and sharing here.

Hi everyone, I discovered the forums yesterday while looking for some specific PS2 BIOS image and I managed to find it here, thank you!
Seeing the rest of the forum I though I might as well stick around for a while and maybe stay for longer. I'm not really even able to collect any sets as my free storage space right now is less than a single GiB but I think I can still enjoy my stay by just browsing the forums, I'm very much into emulation and the likes and it's always nice to find some community dedicated to just that and so much more.

I have always been obsessed with downloading stuff I will never watch or play. my favourite systems are the nintendo ds and playstation 1. which aren't very easy to collect. I have found a couple incomplete torrents but I assume most of the files are crap dumps so how much work am I gonna need to put into collecting everything?
this site is amazing I didn't even know about the existence of nongood sets until recently and then I found files that aren't even contained in the nongood sets. I am really bad with english so sorry for this crap message.

I want the collection to focus on obscure and lesser known games. I don't know how long I will work towards it before giving up. but I will probably find a few cool things.
if anyone else is interested in making a collection of modern free computer games. here are a couple of good websites that contain alot of stuff.

If you mean creating fixdats in cmpro then it is simple after scanning a set, right click in the scan window and go to save and tick auto save fixdat file after scan and it will save the fixdat to the fixdat folder within cmpro folder, or you can click on fixdat file in the save menu and then save a fixdat to wherever you want to store the file

Post by: WickedOne on October 22, 2016 - 23:50:50
I just got back after another long absence from emulation and after being a member for 4 years now, mostly lurking I thought it might be good to follow the boards advice to introduce myself.  8)
I've been in emulation for nearly 20 years now, 25 on the internet at all, I have seen the rise of the arcade machines and the rise and fall of the homecomputers, so I'm kind of an old fart coming to that. I'm from Germany and gaming arcades were not so much of a place to hang out for kids, since they banned the video games from the streets in the early 1980s to places together with the gambling machines and only accessible to adults. But until then I dropped my fair share of pocket money into Asteroids, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, etc. I had my own computer also fairly early starting with a VIC-20 and later an Apple II compatible, so I also have some 35 years of hands on experience with programming (never was really good at it, but I can get by ;)
My personal console collection contains: the original brick ... aka GameBoy, a GBC + EEPROM Card, GBA + EEPROM Card, Sega Genesis (aka Mega Drive in Europe), SNES, N-64 + Doctor V64, Game Cube, Modded PS2 + Network Card & Harddrive, PS3 all with an assorted collection of modules and disks.
I started emulators with ... guess what ... MAME, v0.24 I believe, and quickly broadened from there, having found an easy way to play those games and relive some of my past without having to carry all the hardware around  :P
In my hayday (like the early 2000s...) I traded mails with Cowering, Logiqx and the TOSEC community about file formats and renaming (Not so much as to leave a lasting impression, though  ;D ) and I did write my own rom handling library in Perl  8)
Not good enough to release, but it helped me pre-sort the stuff I downloaded from USENET, usually by selecting a whole group and download everything (you still could do that in those days) and then weed out all the duplicate posts. USENET is still my download drug of choice. Especially since the GOOD providers are actually offering now nearly a decade backlog. No wait for downloads, no ratios, but not free either. But (semi) legal in most countries, like Germany. 8) Here in good old Germany they don't get you for illegal downloads, but for distributing when you use Torrent on your personal machine/IP :)
Lately I noticed that even the great providers are actually losing newsgroups like alt.binaries.emulators.mame.chd. Not sure why. Is nobody using them anymore? Is USENET really slowly dying?????
Okay, it is not for the fainthearted and feebleminded. And nowadays you have to rely on boards like this one to find what you are looking for, since the volume is simply immeasurable.
So I'm here to find what I'm looking for and offer advice from my experience where I can.

Thank you for reading and have a good time. :-*

Greetings. I have been searching for VPMame from sets and braved the dangers in order to hopefully complete my Pinmame collections.

I have other sites to go to but I hope to stay here just in case I need the sets. I also hope to seed a lot in order to give back to the community.

Hey there fellow collectors. 
 I've been out of the collecting game about a decade now and finally decided it was time to try to fill in my sets.   Thanks to this site I am learning about projects like Redump and Trurip and the usenet section here has been a HUGE help.   I have scene releases from back in the day for different consoles and Im going to see if perhaps that will help with some of the MIA lists.   Glad I found this community,  hope I can give back a little too!   ;D

Say hello in this thread!!!

Hello there!

I have a question about a previous MAME ROM set... should I post it in a thread that was originally about that version, or create a new one?

Sorry for the obvious inexperience; I fell foul of asking the wrong questions in the wrong places on reddit and eventually gave up after my posts kept getting turfed out by the admins :(
Title: Re: New forum member? Low or zero post count? Read this.
Post by: Zandro on January 25, 2017 - 01:25:19
Reddit is a dangerous place to be with a misaligned viewpoint.

If your request is for a specific old version which already has a fix request for it, that's fine to post in.  But check out the SVN Release topic of the version you're looking at, as they contain links to the newest dumps for those versions.

Hi there,

I'm happy to be aboard and hope to become a useful and helpful member over time.

For now, is there a getting started guide?  For instance, I have no idea how to use .dat files or if there is any way to access usenet stuff for free.  I only see paid options.

I'm looking for a torrent for the full USA set of Gamecube ISO's/Roms and can't seem to find a working one.

If I can figure out how to get started, with your help, I'm happy to pass along the knowledge I learn here.  I love forums and spend a lot of time on them.  Most on AVSForum.com related to home theater, my other passion (same username) and am very active there.

Thanks for having me!!

Got back into the Emulation scene after a few years of absence, as D-an-W I used to hang out on IRC a lot with the likes of Cowering, Eggman, ||CUE||, kiczek (Still talk to kiczek now and again).

I also used to try and keep the peace on #GBANow and #GBATemp (Bot wars were kinda fun!).

I really like how everyone on here is always willing to help  :D

@jevansoh

So did you figure out how to use datfiles? You'll need a ROM Manager like clrmamepro, RomCenter, RomVault or Romulus, for example.
In short: With datfiles you can verify your collections. (What do you already have? What do you miss? You also can use those programs for renaming your files to the "correct" titles.)


@312BhP

Interesting, I think I've never heard of "GBANow". But it seems the site hasn't been active anymore maybe for years?


@olly123

Regarding nzb files, some relevant key words: usenet, newsreader/client software, provider/subscription.
There are free usenet providers like "https://free-usenet.com" but download speed is limited to 1 Mbit/s, so only "acceptable" for smaller files IMHO.

Hello everyone,

I joined Rom Shepherd because it proved to be a valuable resource for finding missing parts of sets. I'm impressed by the compassionate community.

Recently I've been feeling a little disillusioned on collecting and I have been confused on some things. I'm not sure who to ask for help on certain things. In the mean time I just lurk and pay attention to what's happening.

I've enjoyed my time here even though I've been silent. I'm glad to be here.

Kind regards.

Hello all,
I'm a new member I ran across the site on my search for complete rom sets for a coinops xbox project I'm beginning work on. You may or may not have seen me around on other torrent community's  I was around bitgamer and underground-gamer up until the very end (I miss those sites I was even a member of BG right when they began with open sign-up's). I'm currently a member and the new BG and over at gazelle games as well. Any how I can't wait to see what all is on these forums and from what I've read it appears I will feel right at home here being a refugee of the original BG and UG. Looking forward to being a member of the community here at romshepherd.com

Hi all,

Pleased to find a centralised community for emulation.  I tried irc and reddit and then I stumbled here.
Turns out I am a bit of a collector as I don't really play the games much, I think I just prefer the chase and tweaking the emulation to the nth degree and then just playing sega saturn bomberman

Hi!

Seems like a cool forum. Just starting emulating old computers, so I lack a lot of knowledge.  I will probably be more of a reader than a poster, at least for a while. Right now, I am playing MSX, Amiga, and C64 games. These are all systems I did not get to play when I was a kid but knew someone who bragged at the lunch table about them (especially the C64). Now I am just trying to see what I missed.

I've a room filled with my console collection.
Used sneakernet, email, mailing lists, Usenet, IRC, all the P2P apps at one point or another.
Getting back into things after a several year absence and a couple of spanking new 8TB drives. :)
I've been raping Loveroms, they even changed their site to make it harder for me to keep raping them - to no avail.
Once I'm done with them, I'll check what they provided against your MIA lists.

I am working on rebuliding and expanding my collection after an HDD crash. But this time I'm trying to do it right. Back in the day I had just grabbed everything I saw with no organization haha. Im still getting the hang of Romvault and using Dats to keep everything straight.

I am focusing on collecting No-Intro and redump sets for now.

I'm excited for lurking around and learning as much as possible. There are some amazing resources from what I have seen so far.

I am looking forward to learning a lot and contributing back to the community.

Thought i'd say hello before asking for any advice etc.

Own a SNES - recently embarked on a mid-life crisis & decided to invest in a SNES & Wildcard which was a big part of my teenage life!

Thought I was a big player back in the 90's with my 32MB upgraded Wildcard (how wrong I was!), was never aware of the DX & DX2 so decided to purchase one of each for pure Nostalgia!

Will drop a note regarding a couple of questions on the DX2 in the appropriate forum!

Just joined, my first post...

Used to dabble with MAME on my old PC a few years ago. Also Nestacle way back when...Naturally, dont know where my old stored ROMS are...on 3 computers since those days. Now trying to find the recent pulled ROMS for the NES, SNES, and N64. Playing with a Pi. Hope to sharpen my old emulating skills.

Well I suppose I should post and say hello to all the great people that are here.

I have been here for a little while, I think pry just over a month maybe 2.
I am a very big fan and supporter of the work that s4nQy29A has done. I have been wanting to talk with them but they unfortunately haven't been online in a month so I will ask some of the more experienced people questions here. So I hope that if anyone is familiar with the work they had done and willing to answer some of my questions I would greatly appreciate it if you could contact me.

Hello all,

Another newbie to the forum here. What to say about myself? Well, I love many platforms from the venerable C64 to Apple ][, to Colecovision, to NES, to Dreamcast, to... well you get the idea.

This looks like a great community and I'm glad to have stumbled upon it!

All the best,

Hi everyone,

I'm glad that I've found this place. I generally love all kinds of old games & platforms. Just recently found out how cool it is having a big collection combined with a frontend. So right now I'm dreaming about having a setup with Launchbox, so that I'm always prepared to dive into the history of videogames. Cheers!

Hi all,

Just discovered this impressive web site and world of Emulators. Must admit I am clueless how to get starting playing, in my case, the SNES. I'll keep lloking around and seek out a Tutorial on how to load the app and load in ROMs to play.

Total nostalgia! Feel's like the 1980's all over again! It's by far my favourite decade in all matters, especially music and movies.

Cheers all!

Hello world.

Just found this forum and thought I'd say hi.

I've been into emulation since mid 90's when I first came upon Zsnes many moons ago at an old LAN party..  and I guess it's still in my blood.  You know your getting old when the "Brand new" consoles and games that were out when you discovered emulation ( PSX, N64 ) are considered old news in the emulation circles.

Anyhow, with net neutrality in jeopardy I figured it was time to start getting things in order.

Hi folks -

I'm currntly collecting information for my "new project - building a retropie-containing arcade joystick, somewhat like a Pandoras box with a built in stick but based on a pie...

Due to a major HDD crash I'm currently lacking some ROMs for this project... Specifically I'm searching for C64/Amiga/NES/SNES/Sega Mega Drive/PC Engine (Turbo Grafx) Game archives and perhaps some more...

If I could find any help here, would be most nice - usenet access is given - no torrents or och, I dislike them most....

Cheers

Morning all,  Just thought I'd sign up and say hello :-)  Found this site when looking for some PS2 'ROM Sets' (can't find any yet!).  I collect anything from PS2/Xbox backwards and especially like to add new features to old systems, eg. IDE to AtariST etc.  Too many systems owned to list here :-)  If I have missed it, feel free to point me in the right direction... looking for torrent links that I can use with my transmission boxes... always on seeding :-)

Hello everyone.

Last year I began collecting games for the systems I grew up on (PS2/Gamecube/N64). Since then I discovered Redump and No Intro sets, which made me want to collect even more in the hopes of creating the perfect set for each system. This site was suggested to me last month so I finally signed up! It looks like a great place for this kind of information and I look forward to getting to know some of you! :)

Hi everyone! Another newbie making their first post on this thread.

I've been involved in similar forums in the past, along with dabbling in emulation. I've recently started taking a bit more care with my collection and verifying against DATs, as well as branching out into the disc-based systems I had as a kid. I'm hoping I might get a bit of info here on how to finish off some of my collections. Of course, anywhere I can help I'll try and lend a hand!

just normal behaviour.
dont ask several times the same question. dont post fix-requests in wrong places (e.g. no reDump-fixes posts at no-intro subforums), be patient, the better you ask for, the quicker you get your fixes.
dont be greedy, dont ask for fullsets using fixdats. ask for fullsets instead. Post fixdats here (1 week). Post files using a hoster.
Some more?

Hi guys

I'm from Portugal, 42. My first computer was as ZX Spectrum 128k +2, then the Commodore Amiga 500 and finally i stepped up to a IBM PC 386. Then in the late 90's i started to collect roms, specifically all SNES even translations, hacks, etc. I had a big SNES collection which i lost due to defective CDS.

Now i'm here to collect and know more about the emulation world and it's multiple variants. It's a nice community from what i've seen so far.

Hello all!

Love what I have seen in the forum here. I how ever normally don't post a whole lot and don't say much in general unless I have something that adds to the conversation.

Guess I'll make my first post finally

I joined this site a while back looking for a few clean versions of my old GBA games. What I found was yet another time-consuming project I didn't need!
I'll spare you my journey into how I got here and jump right into the good stuff.

I have an account on 1fichier.com for 100TB cold storage (They had a deal for 2 years that I'm confident will not hold up) and have been slowly collecting/migrating my collection to that site.
My ultimate goal is to get as many games backed up as I can so the history is not lost when companies like Nintendo lay down the ban hammer on emulation sites.

So my first question is for all the 1fichier professionals out there, how can I get these files uploaded to 1fichier properly? FTP works well until it hits a character it does not like in the filename (' or $)
What I currently do is run a python script and move all the files 1fichier doesn't like to a new folder, and upload them using the web UI. My problem is the optical-based games are too big to be done this way, and too numerous even if it was possible.

Is there a tool out there I am unaware of? Tried to do a search, but "1fichier upload" is a terrible search on this site for my use-case :P
I could probably script something myself if 1fichier had an english documented API.
Assuming I can get this smallish hurdle out of the way, I would gladly finish uploading the missing pieces and share them back with this community that gave me this opportunity in the first place.

Happy to be here!
