for SCC support you should simply require a Sound Cartridge.

Bacause there is about 45 people downloading almost 80MB of data at the same time. Tongue

I just compiled a nice archive of Knightmare Gold 2.0.0 which includes all the files needed to burn the CD.

Oh look, it's a noworky ;)

@FiXato: Yes, that's your server that is being used. let me know if you want the file gone because it's eating up your bandwith faster than you can read the Koran.

In the meantime, this should help in reducing the 'why's that website so horribly slooooooooooooooow. bleh'-ness of things ;)

People, I advise you to remove those links, since it's against MSX Resource Center Policies to distribute ROM files (and your links do have KMARE.ROM)

Most of all, as far as I know Fudeba would like to track himself how many copies of the game is downloaded, so before hosting the files somewhere, it would be nice to ask him about it...

Yes, I do care, indeed.

I spent a lot of time doing KMG and I would like at least to control the internet distribution.
I believe no one cared to read fully the readme, where is stated clearly the software is distributed for free, but it´s forbidden to redistribute it without the authorization.
These packages have data which is intelectual property from Konami, Amusement Factory (me, Daniel Caetano), Techno Dreams (Pablo Vasques Bravo-Villalba) and A&L Software (Adriano Cunha), and even if Konami do not care about a 20 years old software, the others really care about a 0 years old software which took away every single free minute we had in the past two years (I do not have much time, indeed!)

Of course I believe my server has limited bandwidth for this kind of distribution. This was the reason why I released the files as MP3 and not FLACs (or WAVs) for now. Also, I did not want to distribute copyrighted material from Konami, and this is why KMARE.ROM is not included in the package.
For sure some people think that I made this way to make it difficult to play. Of course not! It was a lot more work to distribute this way. This was the way I found to distribute it without breaking the law.
Also, I would not care if music were hosted somewhere else (since I could track the main file KMG.COM), but I´m not the music author, and he asked me to track the downloads.

Am I asking too much? The server is slow? Well, wait some days and try again.
Or, if you have a fast server, please, send me an e-mail so I can use it, but tracking the downloads.
And of course, always trying to avoid breaking the law.

Regards,
Daniel Caetano, from Amusement Factory Software

If the issue is only about gathering statistics, then next time you could try a torrent distribution. Place the .torrent file itself in your server, so you can track how many times it was downloaded. The bulk of the files are then distributed through the p2p network. After a few seeds, the download should be lightning fast, regardless of the speed of the original server.

SLotman: Actually, I did not include a ROM dump of Knightmare in the archive. It says so in the FILE_ID.DIZ.

Fudeba: Ok, I have removed the file from the FiXato server and replaced it with a small textfile to explain a few things.

Everybody else: You will just have to be patient (again) Wink

EDIT
I see the links were modded while I was typing this Tongue
/EDIT

EDIT2
If the torrent way of doing this is going to happen then of course I would be happy to seed for a few weeks Wink

Of course if works. I myself (and lots of other brazilian users) tested it on both Ademir's IDE and Sunrise's IDE, not a problem.

What happened when you tried to run the game?
