CPC-POWER Disk/Tape downloads broken?
« on: 05:27, 10 October 12 »
On the "Files" page for a game the links to download disks/tapes are not active, and just text for me! Tested in two browsers, is it just me or are they doing some kind of update?

Due to a conflict with retroroms.net who are "stealing" or simply borrowing their database with no due credits.

The story/drama (in french) is available there at CPCrulez :
http://cpcrulez.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4937


So I guess they blocked the CPCpower Database in b4 adding a captcha for downloadings or whatever.

Also, comic sans.

It is not a "credit problem", but a "leecher" problem. Now, you need to be identified (connected as member) to the site to download.

Thanks for the replies!

Oh dear!  :o

Well the simple solution is to register on CPC-POWER and remain logged in :)

I think they need to make this more obvious though, I missed the tiny scrolling little message about this.

The main problem look that leechers eat all the bandwidth and avoid to update the CPC-Power content!
Now, if you do that you are automaticaly banned.

@Xyphoe :
Kukulcan told us at CPCrulez that you have to be aware that if you encounter such a problem at CPCpowers, you can also mail to him through the "contact" option, because you know, he gets embarassed that you expose the flaws of his otherwise excellent site into the whole Amstrad internationnal community... ;D


Jokes appart, he never come here at CPCwiki because like perhaps more than half the french community, he was to busy to code raster porn on CPC in the 80's/90's instead to learn english at school*. :D


(he willl kill me for telling all those craps...ouch)


*I suck at coding but i can into English, though. My life sucks. :'(

Well I guess that eventually the download buttons will be replaced by a "sign-in" button or something...
