problem with winmx

Postby hoseboy » Mon Jun 13, 2005 1:56 pm

been having a problem downloading some songs on winmx. it waits for the connection but never connects just says connection timed out. have tried different people but still gets the same result. it seems to happen on new songs. the ones i've tried has been the new xxxxxxxx cd. also on the song by xxxxxxxxxxx it downloads but nothing pays back. is that a fake file? anyone have any ideas? everything else i try works ok!!!!!

Yes Beer, for all the popular titles they are about 80% fakes, they will just time out time after time, try the -c: trick, it seems to still work for many of the files, not all though. :?

Insert the -c: in the lower search box and the artist and title your seeking in the top and it will filter out many of the flooders who use c: drives (you can see this in full path search), also many can be filtered by using -user or -and, the filtering is very helpful, but what is still important is that all primary mx users use peer guardian, as it will show globix/on systems etc trying to connect to you and upload a list of fake files that get sent out when the unwary try to search for something, this is a nasty trick and is avoidable if we all make sure that primaries are not allowing these people to connect and upload.
