    EDIT: This topic is now discussing what to put in the first proper .torrent.

    Emus:
    ++DrMDx
    +SquidgeSNES
    +gp2xMAME
    ++Gnuboy

    Games
    +Urquan masters
    +Vektar
    +TileMatch
    +Beat2x

    (+ = 1 vote, I will stay impartial)

    The test (gp2x.torrent 0.1b?) with Sonistar was successful! Thanks :)

    Thanks, if it suddenly fails, it means my parents have found me up at 11:18pm.

    ED said the issue was the HDD being full, not overloaded by too many clients. last I checked. I doubt most people will really want to download from a torrent when they just need some very specific things-- and there is no high-speed seeder or large number of peers to support such a torrent. Torrents are really better suited for rapid distribution of a trendy large file.

    I think it would be great to have a beginners torrent.

    We could put all the best programs that you would imagine would be contained on a starter CD. Updated once every month or so.

    Then have the torrent topic pinned.

    I've got a 1mbit upload and would be happy to keep it seeded.

    Thats probably what I was going to do, what do you suggest as "the best programs"?
    Some are more obvious: DrMDx, squidgesnes, MAME etc. but which of the homebrew games/applications/skins?

    And if I make one, it will probably be after easter as I'm getting broadband then.

    these are all good. gnuboy would be another good emulator. We could add some free roms to that.

    From games, I'd add Urquan masters, because it's impressive and doesn't require the original game. There a quite a few good homegrew.... just download all the ones with the most downloads and the highest ranking. That's what rankings is for anyway.

    Bump

    I changed the topic post, but that doesn't bump it on it's own.

    well, i would prefer to just use the archive, but if people want a torrent I guess that's cool.... here are my votes:
    GNUboy - one of the best emulators around
    DrMDX - the best emulator around
    vektar - wow. this is what all homebrew games should strive to be (although generally I prefer story-based games)
    beat2x - well, i wish there were background animations, but other than that it is perfect
    tilematch - duh!
    rockdodger - no one ever mentions it but I just cannot get enough!
    extraterrestres :p - this is my own homebrew game.... shouldn't count as a real vote ;)

    Drmdx,
    The Puzzle Bobble clone.... Frozen2x i think it's called, or maybe that's another game...
    Goitfights :p
    The Fenix Runtime
    Maybe the Fenix Game Collection? I'm pretty sure I have a lot of my own games in there too ;)
