Old Feb 4th, 2003, 02:35 PM        The Rom download site link exchange posty!
DO NOT ASK FOR/OFFER ISOs IN THIS THREAD OR FORUM. DO NOT POST REQUESTS FOR ROMS/ROM CATEGORIES WITHOUT POSTING A NEW ROM SITE LINK IN THIS THREAD.

I thought I'd make a new post for this since new sites are constantly appearing, and more importantly, existing sites are constantly going down and closing. The two biggest sites I know of:

http://www.edgeemu.com

http://www.planetemu.net

edgeemu.com is constantly unavailable one way or another, and for some reason I can't properly open the zip files I download from planetemu.net. Maybe it's their high security. Anyone know of any other good rom download sites currently available? I'm interested mainly in NES, SNES and Sega Genesis roms, but let's all help each other out.

And of course, sites that offer hacked roms would be a big help too.

I have one site for rom hacks. And I'm NOT giving it out. It's mine.. my only... my precccioussss.

As for roms, I have this one for MAME:

http://mamefans.metropoliglobal.com/roms.htm

It's all in Spanish, so I can't understand anything beyond the game titles. I don't even know what version MAME is anymore (after MAME.Net pussied out and took their roms down, I really stopped paying attention).

For most of your SNES needs. Except some games that are IDSA protected. But for those you can use any other rom site or any decent p2p program.

The best I knew of are coolroms.com and freeroms.com. Of course, someone already mentioned Cherryroms.com. One problem with Freeroms is that even with a cable modem it still takes forever and a day to DL them.

The best site I know of to find some rarer NES roms is Marbysworld.com. Hope this helps. And btw, I know this sounds stupid, but I've found every GB rom I could EVER want except Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. If ANYONE has this or knows where to find it that's not a broken link, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Another good thing you MIGHT try, when going to any of these websites is to look at the LINKS section, every so often you'll find a winner. I only mention this because it's incredibly easy to overlook it.

Hey the guy just asked a site and normally you guys should give it to him instead of acting like a 10 year old. I don't have a Psx Iso site either. That's because of the rather large filesize of the ISO and not many sites want to serv it. I would say you go and d/l Kazaa from www.kazaa.com. Then you can download a few psx roms like metal gear solid and tenchu and Dragonball GT: Final Bout. Other than that i would like to say that emulation is mostly history . To many good sites or losing roms or closing up because of legal problems or not enough votes. SO PEOPLE, KEEP THE EMULATION ALIVE

I'd say the problem with the VOTING sites is that EVEN AFTER FUCKING VOTING the roms still don't work. So I prefer, as I'm sure others do, to stay AWAY from sites that require votes. Any link I've tried from those "Top 50 Sites" do NOT work, at least for me.

I think that people prefer just getting straight to the roms (much like CherryRoms.com)

One of the sites posted in this thread required that you voted on two sites before downloading the rom, or else it would be corrupted (the site also declared it would shut down unless they got a certain number of votes through by the end of the month). I stay away from those sites because I simply don't believe that the download can be any different if you do vote.

Do you get a site with dead links, or nothing at all? Some time ago it had a large selection of roms for download, but after that they had constant server troubles and you'd get a message when trying a download telling you the server wasn't working, they were relocating, etc. Could be that they finally shut down now.

darthmaiden, if people ask for specific roms without giving out a link in the process, this thread can rapidly fill up with posts no one has use for. If you're really stumped on findind a specific game, make a new thread for it.

EdgeEmu is still up and running. Problem is, they just never have their roms database working. None of their NES roms are even linked at the moment, and anything that is link is to a broken link.

It's not shut down, it's just that I've literally tried it once a day since I read that post, since they had quite a few roms listed I could not find ANYWHERE else, and the links aren't broken but I always get the same ol' song and dance about Server Problems.

BTW the link trick I mentioned earlier DOES work wonders. Sometimes you have to rely on trial and error because the links will have nothing written beside them or in the link itself to let you on that you're going to a ROM site but sometimes you strike gold.
