too impatient on torrent downloading
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?
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.
Half a day for a dwonload...........f*** you should feel lucky it takes days here in AUS due to the uselessness that is Telstra.
Demoind is pretty good haven't downloaded any Wii games there site is down...Luck i joined it a few months back might wait till the site is up and running again...
You can go out and rent games and copy them to your HDD if you want.

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.
