Self-Downloading for Games

Postby Mesden » Mon Jun 05, 2006 11:17 pm

Right now, if you join a Game, you have to have it on your computer. I propose something like, where you join the game and can download the game from the other person's computer.

Thats being emulator specific. From what u've said, zbattle is p2p architecture? kaillera is server/client architecture. To transfer roms through server is like...wasting an awful lot of server bandwidth. I dunno...mayb kaillera will change in the future!

Yes. You are not allowed obtain or distribute a perticular roms unless you have the original cartridge or whatever. For example, I have the "Mark of the Wolves" r0m and also its original cd. SNK wont sue me because they couldnot possibly make any more money out of me (I already have the game lol). If police comes and catches you, you are in trouble.

There are now 0 (zero) known cases for individual (not including r0m sites) where people have got in trouble (not even busted!)

I think developers are starting to realise that emulators + downloadable roms aren't hitting them where it hurts, maybe the ESA will lay off sooner or later, because super mario world (for SNES) cannot make any more money!!

Having an auto downloading system would just be too problematic. It would invite lawsuites, cost lots of money in bandwidth (since roms are popular) and would lead to system congestion, because you'd have people who came on not to play, but just to get free games.

Do we really want to turn kaillera into the next napster?

Plus it would take lots of work to manage it, since new mame games come out every release (which means you'd have to upload a bunch of new stuff every month, which takes dedication, who would do that for free?).

Plus some jerks might try to hack the system so they could send viruses to people and malicious programs. That wouldn't be good...

It's just asking for trouble. Let people find their own games and bring them to the party. Keep it low key and friendly.

It's not as if finding roms is so difficult that you need a system like this, no offense.
