Arrr...Is it safe?
« on: 2007 June 10, 23:52:02 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I'm looking to ... "legitimately aquire" (*coughstealcough*) a copy of H&M Stuff*. I've only got LimeWire for downloading stuffeths, so I'm wondering how trustworthy that program is for downloading .exe files, or if there's another place I can go to better ensure that I don't accidentally download something that's going to explode my PC. Any help will be appreciated.

*I really would rather only get the clothes, but I'll grab the whole pack if that's all there is. I'd just rather not pay for it.

I, uh, tried this recently. Waited 10 hours to download, got useless crap with no .exe  Huh. So, yeah, turned me off quickly. I've "acquired" other things and no issue, but this one...couldn't find a good torrent. I'd just wait for someone to rip the stuff. That way you can pick and choose what you want in your game.

Have you tried The Pirate's Bay? (Don't bother with PROCYON CloneCD BTW, it got nuked on nforce.)

And what do you mean by .exe files? Game ISOs come usually in cd image format, like bin/cue or CloneCD.

I did ISOhunt. No .exe, just some cloaking program, and key generator, and some image files...but nothing I could use. And a bunch of stuff that looked like Chinese. Then I read the comments (dumb Kari can't read beforehand) and people are complaining that it's completely unusable. So I just decided to chuck it and wait until someone rips what I want. I only want a couple of outfits and those huge doors.

I waited six hours yesterday for the download from torrentspy to finish, and I ended up with the same thing as Zazazu. I had read the comments, but it seemed like they all must have known something I didn't and had been able to get it to work. Good thing my computer competant ex-bf was online at the time, and was able to advise me on a few things. I didn't get the pack, but I did get a decent up-to-date anti-virus program installed. lol

I may just wait for somebody Awesome to rip out the clothes.  Tongue

Hm. It's telling me 1 day + right now. Over cable. Might be a borked estimate, though, I sometimes notice that if you wait a few minutes it all the sudden speeds up.

EDIT: Yup. Weirdness. Goes down a minute a second.

I've had downloads that took 3 days that were about the same size as that stuff pack because there weren't many seeders.  Sims torrents are usually well seeded by comparison.

Yeah, use either Halite or microTorrent on Windows.  Use isohunt as your search engine since it has a massive list of torrent sites that it searches.  Also search The Pirate Bay since it's one of the few sites that aren't covered by isohunt.  Demonoid's a private tracker covered by isohunt so you can find a lot of their stuff without signing up but if you want to use their engine you've got to have an access code or register during their free registration days.

The thing about torrents is; "what goes around, comes around".  Are any of you guys seeding?
This is one SP I simply don't want to install, but I'll consider downloading it just to seed.

Yeah I always seed for the majority of the day.  I only have a laptop so I do need to shut it down at least once a day due to overheating problems.  When I get my desktop, I will leave that on 24/7.

Try it again, really. It looked the same to me, too, but this time I actually got the .mdf and .mds files. Last time they were missing and I just got some gobbly web page linkages and jpegs of the outside of the Chinese version box and some random pic. Plus that cloaking crap and the keygen for Celebrations. All those are still in, but at least the .mdf and .mds are there to make it work. You need Daemon Tools.

And the keygen is crap. Go with what's in comments.

'Course, I still didn't get it to install due to my legitimately cracked .exe for Seasons (I have the EALink version and having to be connected to the 'net worries me). No biggie, just didn't care to bother with fixing it last night.

I'm seeding at 0.5kb/s to some poor bugger; ETA 1 week and 3 days.  I don't know where the bottle neck is, but I don't think it's in my end.

Thankilly-dank, witch. If I can't figure out how to get this one to work, I'll just conclude that I'm not smart enough to download games via torrents.  Tongue

What are you using to mount the image? I used Daemon Tools. I also tried with MagicISO, but it didn't work. So you just have to find what works. Is there an .mds file in there? That's all you need.

Simple Instructions
Start Daemon Tools - right click - virtual cd/dvd rom - device - mount image - select file Sims2SP5.mds. This is if you use the one I gave a link to. I know you said you tried it, but it works.

AND, the celebrations keygen does work. You have to press the yellow disk next to the scrolling text. Then at the top it will show your drives and what you have in them. Select the H&M drive and then generate key. I didn't have any problems using it.

Without your instruction, MistyBlue, I'd still be a game downloading-retard. :B you said "mount the image" and I said to myself " 'mount?' there's an image? what greek are you talking?" So, being the savvy internetter that I am, I googled daemon tools. I had no idea I needed an outside program to get the game to run. Roll Eyes But it works now! W00t! Thank you for your assistance.

The same with me. I hadn't realized it either-- thanks MistyBlue.

There's one thing I'm not clear on though. What is seeding? I've not tried this before, and I'm not anxious to ruin my brand new laptop, though I don't think the SPs are worth money either.  Undecided
