Thread: NZB Question

  1. #1
    Oke question.

    i download a game for example, but there's no nzb file with it. A friend of mine wants to download the game too, so i decide to make a nzb file for him. But when he downloads via the nzb the only thing he gets are a sort of txt files? :S

    So if i want to make a nzb of files i downloaded how do i do that :X

    Thnx in advance!!

    Maybe his retention is shit, his ISP doesn't have newsgroups access, he's too poor to pay for newsgroups access or you may just be doing it wrong. I'm guessing it's the retention.

    I'd have to agree, all the problems I have seen from people having text files after downloading were retention problems.

    Either retention, or he doesn't have acess to the specific group does seem the most likely.

    Does he seem to "download" as fast as a really fast thing, going dead fast.

    Are the files the correct size.....if they are they just need to be decoded try Uud32win or yenc32 to decode...This has happened to me in the past with certain nzb's, don't know why.

    I would vote retention, which service does he use?

    His isp is Home.nl, but we use the nzb files from http://usenetsearch.eweka.nl I have another isp which has a 3,5terrabyte newserver (biggest in europe). So what you say about retention.. i think that his newsserver is crap. I used to have the same isp as my friend and we had nothing but problems :X

    I'd suggest spending a little cash and going with a Usenet provider like Usenet Monster, NewsHosting or the likes. I'm with Usenet Monster and haven't had a problem yet.

    I've also heard they cap users with "higher than normal" usage.

    So... $15 p/m NewsHosting, 24 days (rising to 40), No caps.
    Or... $25 p/m Giganews, 55 days, Possible capping.

    Is it really worth the extra $10?
