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. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. 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.

Question Downloading programs

Hello there,

Can someone plz help?? My B/F has decided he wants the old Atari console game of *edited*(pest )
Anyway I put space invaders in search and what I got was some Zip files which I didn't want to download cos it said they had executable files which may contain a virus. Instead I downloaded 2 things at random (1-F2 and 2-A5, they didn't have names just this). When I looked in my shared files folder it said:- 1-F2 AVG update 8kb (the other the same but 2-A5).
When I tried to open them it said -: you are attempting to open a file of type AVG update (BIN)...blah blah blah etc etc.

Why is this happening plz??

Thanks a lot, Lindy x

That's the way to go if you want to play old arcade games (ah, the memories) on your PC.
Just dld the thing and dld a ROM and you're good to go (or, rather, your B/F is).
If he really likes old games like that, I think he'll have enough to satisfy his hunger for quite some time.

PS: I edited out the name of the game out of precaution. I think it's still copyrighted.

Hi there,

Thanks for that. I appreciate the time you've taken to reply.

I've been getting the mag Easy PC and one of the CDs is.... (wait a mo and I'll take a looksee) ....yeh here it is, it's a C.D ROM emulator and now I've looked at it properly I don't thinks it's the right thing . It says,
Quote:
Store and play you audio CDs CD-ROMs from your computer hard-disk drive
Oh well I'll have a look at the link you included in your post.

Hee Hee bet you never guessed how daft I am with computers.
Thanks again, Lindy x

A CD-ROM emulator will do almost the same thing as Mame, except that it will do it for CDs.
Allow me to explain: Say you have a game on CD-ROM that requires you to insert the CD-ROM every time you want to play. What the program the mag offered does is emulate the CD-ROM. In other words, it stores the data of the CD-ROM on your comp and then tricks the comp into thinking that the CD-ROM is already inserted.
Neat?
It depends.
As for Mame, what it does is it emulates old consoles like the Super Nintendo Entertainement System (or SNES ) and old arcades. You then have to find ROMs on the net to play games, so to play the game your B/F wants, you first have to dld Mame then find and dld the ROM.

supbondid: You can't launch programs via LW. You'd need to open them outside of LW. Go to the LW downld folder & open from there.
