Thread: Disappointed

  1. #1
    Are there actually any files out there that actually work properly ?

    Most movie files i have found to be ok. But games, apps, and others (especially games) i have found to be mostly corrupt.
    Case in point : I downloaded Battlefield 1942 cd1 and cd2, mounted with Daemon tools would not install due to errors. Ran through CDmage and found 4 errors on cd1 and 12 on cd2, "fixed" and tried to install again. This time no joy due to "CRC" errors, deleted both .bins.

    This happens time and time again.

    Is there not a list of "verified" (and i mean properly verified and checked thoroughly) files around?

    I mean you call it a "verified" list but it's not really is it?

    I may be way off the mark here or just unlucky, I don't know.

    Input please.
    Thanks.

    [BuZz]

    LOOK AROUND THE BOARD!
    There are 4 forums with 'verified' lists in them.

    Plus there are hundreds of topics with links to 'verifieds' sites.

    .... It's your problem. Sorry, but thats all I can say. When you were DL'ing the corrupted files, that usually means you were/are unlucky or that the person you were DL'ing from had a corrupted version. If we post it in the verifieds, its verified as working on that computer. It's not guaranteed to work on all computers. If you really want non-corrupted stuff, the place to go is either Edonkey or EMule.

    P.S. If I sound negative, please don't take it that way

    That's the risk you take for being illegal.
    If you want to be 100% sure the software works all the time you can buy it.

    Converting already Shinigami? If something is corrupted in Emule it has to redownload the part, not the whole file.

    I have never downloaded a file, using a verified sig from this board, which was not what it claimed to be. They have all worked. This includes movies, software, misic and games. Maybe I'm just lucky.

    If I ever did I would post in the relevant thread. It has not happened yet and I hope it never will.

    Is this just more Rabble Rousing, it's becoming more common. How many times have you actually used the sigs here to download things.
