    too impatient on torrent downloading

    hey guys,
    i dont know what the usual time span of downloading games, but its taking me like half a day depending on how many seeds or whatever. i was just wondering if i could just run out and borrow copies of wii games and burn them-i guess create backups-and play on my wii?

    i have a mac and 4.2u softmod wii..

    and im using vuze torrent or azureus, is there like a faster downloader? or do i have to get lucky to get invited to one of those invite only ones?

    thanks men

    I'm new and I am seeing the same thing for torrents. Check out HippyFreak on this forum Hippyfreak's WII "ISO ONLY" thread

    He has like 400something ISO ready to download on megaupload. I downloaded my first game (mario party 8) in like 60-90 mins.

    You can go out and rent games and copy them to your HDD if you want.
    Private torrent sites are the best if you can get an invite. I have a couple of private accounts, the best I get, depends on line speed and seeders, is 550k download, about 2 hours a game.
    Upload is just as important, you need leechers to get your upload to a reasonable level. A good Ratio is the name of the game in Torrents.
    My best upload is 50k.
