Why arent we sharing xbox games on kazaa?? Is there a law against it?? I think we should all put our games on kazaa so we can download them off each other. Is this a good idea?? let me know
Nov 14 2002, 02:48 AM
its that most peeps wouldnt download it or would but find out its fake, but i just had a good idea!!!!!! HOW BOUT WE PUT IT ON KAZAA, AND RENAME IT SO THE BEGINING IS X-S______ LIKE X-S THEN THE FILENAME.ISO OR .TAR!!!! thad be awesome, im doing it, if other peeps want to!
Nov 14 2002, 02:56 AM
I always wanted to know why no one was doing this, so your saying as an example it would be X-S-halo2.iso or X-S-halo2.rar??
If so then im up for it, then you can post your games that you have up on kazza......if thats aloud here, i forget.
Nov 14 2002, 03:03 AM
If we do this, we should use Direct Connect, and create a private channel. Direct Connect is as easy to use as Kazaa but is much more efficient... basically a P2P FTP network.
Of course, any details would need to be handled OFF of this board.
Nov 14 2002, 03:09 AM
im putting my games on kazaa right now!!!!! Everyone do it!!!!
Nov 14 2002, 03:10 AM
join #x-s on efnet if intrested, all discussions from now on will be heald there. See you there!
Nov 14 2002, 03:11 AM
Ok but what do we search for when searching for xbox games? do we just type in X-S?
Nov 14 2002, 03:15 AM
Oh man is that going to be painfully slow... Don't say you weren't warned.
Nov 14 2002, 03:19 AM
i think kazaa would be easier........dont know how that would be complex....
Nov 14 2002, 03:20 AM
How would we search for games cause im uping a game in rar format in about an hour, just raring it.
Nov 14 2002, 03:20 AM
very slow, indeed. this is why we have IRC and Newsgroups.

And IRC is fast?
You can search through news servers for old games?
Meh, there is always problems with everything.
Also, there are program that can speed up downloads on kazaa.
Also, everyone, if you do this, make sure your file names are the exact same, same filesize so when we hit "Find more sources for download" it will find them.
Nov 14 2002, 04:30 AM
ok I just put some on, it's X-S <filename>.
Nov 14 2002, 04:50 AM
great idea guys, i'll put some new ones one tonight,
bmxxx and frontline
Nov 14 2002, 04:53 AM
Okay, again, Direct Connect is the intelligent way to go here...
Hmm... I'll see you on IRC to duke it out.
Nov 14 2002, 05:18 AM
Not really sure how to put this but here goes.
This REALLY is not the place for this type of discussion and if you think about it you will understand it.
Don't go jumping down my throat thinking I'm a prude! There is a fine line between semi-legality of backing up software, and blatantly advertising your willingness to upload and download it in these forums.
Just think about it.
Nov 14 2002, 05:22 AM
COME ON EVERYBODY!!!!!! UPLOAD ON KAZAA!!!!! KAZAA IS GONNA BE THE PRIMARY DOWNLOAD IF YOU ALL UPLOAD!!!
Nov 14 2002, 06:50 AM
its not working on kazaa, delete if you must, the direct connect hub is at 18.104.22.168, and is working, enjoy! Do not download the games unless you have the original
Nov 14 2002, 07:06 AM
exactly what he said
Nov 14 2002, 07:06 AM
People are never going to be there with a name like "Bagel" for the hub name
Nov 14 2002, 07:17 AM
Dont worry....Well change it.
Nov 14 2002, 07:43 AM
how do you pick Your "direct connect hub" in kazaa?
Nov 14 2002, 07:50 AM
Screw the whole kazaa idea!
Kazaa sucks cuz its not workin. Just use Direct connect.
Nov 14 2002, 12:14 PM
Here is a tip for this peer to peer shit,If you want to download xbox games then only use DirectConnect peer to peer software as kazza sucks and is full of spy's
Nov 14 2002, 03:20 PM
Can you make that hub access password protected...
Its not gonna be long before lots of leechers take over the hub without sharing anything if we don't do this...
Nov 14 2002, 03:37 PM
Hmmmm, just tested that DirectConnect thing, its really a great idea but since most of the people have their connection capped at 128kbits/sec on upload, its pretty much useless...
Have you ever tried to transfer a 2gb file at 16 kbytes/sec... it would take approx. 36 hours ... I think I'll pass and stick to usenets.
It was a great idea though.
(Edited after realizing I was dumb in maths...)
Nov 14 2002, 03:44 PM
Im there right now and its working fine for me, i dont mind waiting a couple of hours for a game....................even though i already have it on original.
Nov 14 2002, 03:55 PM
dc++ is the way to go.
but you better be on a frickin fast server...
Nov 14 2002, 04:01 PM
i considered, we should go to dc to have files people are missing from there newsgroups!! i have everything from ghost recon and down so please have fun!! CyKiller - please only dload the games if u have the original, this is only for backup purposes only, and thx to bagel for hosting!!
Nov 14 2002, 04:19 PM
Wary as I am of contributing to this topic, just my 2 cents:
FixTr: Where did you get that figure from? Should only take 36 hours to upload 2GB over a 16kbyte upstream, surely.
How about Edonkey, people? It can download multiple sections from lots of people (thus reducing the upload problem to some extent) and isn't as damn cliquey as DC. More importantly, it can hash the files so we know they're genuine. ED's AdaNET server can max out all my broadband connections simultaneously, 24/7.
Nov 14 2002, 04:49 PM
our DC serber isnt slow. It goes 3 times as fast as those stupid fservers on IRC
Nov 14 2002, 04:54 PM
Geez im glad we went with DC, im getting good speeds and good shit, except i cant seem to connect to certain people, i click on there names and nothing happens.
Nov 14 2002, 05:01 PM
for dc users, use your xbox-scene names so we can recognize u!!
Nov 14 2002, 05:03 PM
well im sockmonkey right now but i will change it.

Man I was still asleep, sorry... you're right, 36hours/2gb...
Nov 14 2002, 08:20 PM
cheers for the DC hub. It works great for me.
Nov 14 2002, 08:23 PM
If everyone helps out The Dc Hub will Kick @$$
Nov 14 2002, 08:46 PM
wish i had something to share
NEway the hub kicks ass!
Nov 14 2002, 09:03 PM
Im having trouble connecting to some of the people, it will load the guys stuff up and then close on me.......other peoples wont even load up, just sits there.
But other then that im getting some good stuff so aint complaining
And as always i have the originals of these and so should you
Nov 15 2002, 02:01 AM
some peeps dont have their connection setup so you wont be able to acces/download their files, we have about 20 peeps rite now, i think this will be a success!
Nov 15 2002, 05:18 AM
im gettin mine set up right now. this is a very good idea!!! what u should do is get files from everyone. like if a game is 10 parts get the rar from one guy, r00 from someone else and so on. :-) keep it clean boyz... share and be fair. see you on the flip side
My name is dapoopta on there
Nov 15 2002, 05:40 AM
Our hub is working great, I am really glad.
Nov 15 2002, 09:01 AM
can somebody help me out? I can connect to the hub and see the people connected and I'm sharing about 4 gigs. However I don't know how to connect and download from other people. I can select browse user's files and their name gets added to my queue but that's about it. I"m new to the program, what should I do?
Nov 15 2002, 12:29 PM
Also another reason why some cannot connect:
The hub minimum for files that you must be sharing is 20 megs. Make sure you select the folder you download xbox games to normally so we can all share.

Not if you go with KaZaA Lite.
Nov 15 2002, 03:28 PM
I got kaza lite and it still sucks shit for anything other then mp3s, movies and porn, if you want games kaza cant do shit for ya.
Nov 15 2002, 04:40 PM
i think maybe you should all stop trying to rip of game developers, and by the damn games.

How about no.
Nov 15 2002, 05:01 PM
Im gunna have to go with Col.Havoc and say NO, not for the prices there asking for.
Nov 15 2002, 05:39 PM
Yes prizes are so high...
my xbox sega pack cost me about $300 us just because I'm in Mexico, that is real expensive if you compare it to the price of the same bundle in thanksgiving day.
