Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Lightbulb LimeWire Pirate Edition

LimeWire Pirate Edition is free, open source software based on the final beta version of the popular LimeWire filesharing application. After Lime Wire LLC stopped distributing its software in October 2010, a horde of piratical monkeys climbed aboard the abandoned ship, mended its sails, polished its cannons and released it FREE to the community to help keep the Gnutella network alive.

LimeWire Pirate Edition is pure P2P software; it does not depend on any servers operated by Lime Wire LLC or other companies. It does not include any adware or spyware, and it cannot be remotely monitored or shut down.

Announcing the first release of LimeWire Pirate Edition:
  • Based on LimeWire 5.6 beta
    • Turbo-charged downloads
    • Optimized search results
    • AVG Anti-Virus
  • Built-in torrent search
  • No toolbars, adware or spyware
  • No connection problems

On Dec 11, 2010, a project was registered at SourceForge under a new name WireShare claiming to be LPE. But not much happened other than renaming the program. Thanks to the LPE/WS team for doing this. However, using the WireShare source code, a community & forum member has released the equivalent of LPE 5.6.3 with the new name WireShare. . (Volunteers are needed for compiling both the Linux & MacOSX versions of WireShare with the new changes & improvements. Please contact BigJx or Lord of the Rings via private message if you are willing.)


WireShare 5.6.3

March 2014: Only a Windows version released so far, details here. Name change, fixed java issue, no limestart required, some improvements & bug-fixes, inclusive installer. Some more minor changes will be made to the program over time, notably during April. Many thanks to BigJx for the excellent work done on this. Present download links: WireShareWin-v5.6.3 - 4shared Folder - BigJx, . Mirrors: FileCloud, . MF Mirror 2, . RapidShare Mirror 3, . 4Shared#2. Latest WireShare update 5.6.4.1 released 18th April 2014 with improvements & bug fixes from LPE. Check for more updates in near future.


LimeWire Pirate Edition 5.6.2 (abbreviated LPE)


Windows version: (Windows 8 users will need to install Java and set the installer to Run as Administrator to use LW. Win 7+Vista users do the same.)

File_Girl71's version LW Pirate Edition improved (File_Girl) (Recommended) / Mirror download sites: FileCloud, . 4Shared.

Original Metapirate's LPE:

Download from FileCloud (see download instructions bottom of post.)

Download from mirror

Download from 4Shared

MD5 of installer: 7a96f2da87a7cfc6f10ab6a325ec0e48

* Known Windows issues: (a) LimeWire 5/LPE running with Java 7? Important to see this . ou Francais ici, however LimeStart will by-pass this problem if you choose to install it. . . (b) 64-Bit Java 7 update problem: re-install the 32-Bit Java last and all will be ok. Symptoms: (a) java error when opening LW, (b) LW changing it's download location and location of settings, and unable to connect.
Two other issues and workarounds: (1) LW freezing when changing download location (Java 7 only bug): Need to change it manually. (2) "Done but unable to scan for viruses" (this also prevents music transfers to iTunes.)


Mac version: - OSX 10.5 or higher (MacOSX 10.9 Maverick + 10.8 Mountain Lion + 10.7 Lion users will need to install Apple's Java 6 to use LW. Alternate link Java 6 for OS X 2013-005 - update for OSX 10.7-10.8). MacOSX 10.8 Mountain Lion Security permissions for downloading can be set in the System Preferences: Sample image

Download from FileCloud (see download instructions bottom of post.)

Download from mirror

Download from 4Shared

If using an older mac with 10.5 or later, you may need to set LW to 'Open in 32-bit mode', instructions lower down in this post.

MD5 of installer: d827a7ce4e64d4d4546f6b59f5b60ca1


Linux version (Debian/Ubuntu):

Download from FileCloud (see download instructions bottom of post.)

Download from 4Shared

linux_lwSettings_Connect_LimeStart.tar.gz (includes Linux LimeStart, Spam search filters, Connection file, optional Security blocklist.) Also a 7z compressed option at 1/3 the size.

Optional Security packages for Linux LimeWire

MD5 of installer: e7de0b7ee7fa5305407886d965b38661


Source code:

Download from FileCloud (see download instructions below.)

Download from 4Shared


* To choose from FileCloud (previously called iFileIt) Mirror Download site's download folder, find all LimeWire Pirate Edition releases "here" (disable your browser's AdBlock to use the FileCloud site. Sample image download instructions using LPE as an example.)

To download from 4Shared, you need to be a member of their site. You can register there for free.

All Windows and MacOSX versions are now packaged with an optional security installer to help block out the very worst spam companies. Choice between 'Light' or 'Strong' security. And alternative choices for a total Japanese ban if you prefer to keep your search results to similar cultural results and reduce spam results. The MacOSX package includes LimeStart by LOTR to prevent LW deleting the connection file if not used in 30 or more days. Instructions are included and order of installation for each. Linux users for manual installation of the Security packages, see Security packages for LimeWire (help block out the spam and evil hosts).
Windows LPE install packages also include a LimeStart installer, as described here. This has two functions: (1) prevents LW deleting the connection file if not used in 30 or more days. (2) Overrides the LW launch problem with Java 7. (Note for Windows users: if you ever wished to uninstall LW, uninstall the shortcuts first using the Add/Remove Control panel.)
There is now a Linux LimeStart, search spam filter and Security package optional download, however this download is separate from the actual Linux LPE installer download, details here or just the LimeStart alone.


MacOSX versions, if problems opening LW, select the program from Applications folder and 'Get Info' (command-i), check the 'Open in 32-bit mode' and this might fix your problem but only if you are booting OSX into 32-bit mode (sample image below.) OSX compatibility for LPE or any LW 5 version is OSX 10.5 (intel) or 10.6 or later. LW 4 found here.
LimeWire Pirate Edition-lpe-osx-32bit-mode.gif


* See below in post #3 for File_Girl71's adapted Pirate version for Windows only. Read the changes to be aware of the improvements.
. (Note: the in-built AVG no longer works in any version of LW. The AVG may cause problem errors for some Windows users.)



Do not disable file-sharing, do not 'freeload', if nobody were sharing files, you know of course there would be no files to download. If you are a part of the file-sharing community, then share your part and be a respected member of the file-sharing community. Do you never return what you borrow from your friends? Do you never return your partner's kisses and attention? File-sharing can even be a passion!

That's why I'm here. Let's see what gnutella network is like, and if the Limewire Pirate Edition is worthwhile.

Here is some work i did on the LimeWire Pirate Edition 5.6.2 my self, and few things i had to change on it...
Code:
 
 ChangeLog:
-This release of LW Pirate Edition is for Windows OS!
-Have turbo charged connection, but it is no Pro relase!
-Removed the ugly splash screen to LW Pirate Edition...It has a nice one now!
-Removed AVG Antivirus (Useless pail of Crap!).
-Changed some resource files because of the removal of AVG Antivirus.
-Removed some not needed files like SOURCE, COPY and Flash Player Plugin.
-Repacked the installer so it is a light weight one now!
-Java is seperated from the installer, so it will not download a corrupt Java!
The user must install the Java by them self and use only offline installer ...


Download 'Offline' Java 1.6 Installer For Windows Here: Java Downloads for All Operating Systems (Careful to choose the Offline installer about 16.0 MB in size, not the online installer.) ... (other Java 1.6 updates here.)

LimeWire Pirate Edition Mirror 1: http://www.4shared.com/file/3aEgvi25...ition_Win.html

LimeWire Pirate Edition Mirror 2: File_Girl's LPE version. . Click the Request Download Ticket link, then following page click Download button in same location. Ignore any other advertisements for downloading things. . Sample animated GiF to show what to do.
