......or off of alt.binaries.emulators.mame as "MAME CHD.zip". I would
recommend using Grabit & QuickPAR. After 27 files has been d/led, open
QuickPAR, click on the 'open' button in the bottom-left corner, then
select "MAME CHD.zip.par2". Once it has been checked, you can
right-click on "MAME CHD.zip" and extract to whereever you want. HTH!

Hey DeadDad
I never understood how to get those files, if I open or view them only the
first one show as a zip file. Everything else is just characters on the
screen.

Can you explain how to get them right.

Thank you

I personally guarantee all the CHDs available from
www.pleasuredome.org.uk work and are the very latest files available.
Full instructions are on the site for how to download.

The only drawback is the amount of days to finish that d/l. My computer
showed 25 days or so(500+hrs)

What would be handy is a CHD 'torrent of torrents', so, after d/ling it
and extracting, you would only have to d/l the CHD's that you want.

1) Install 7zip ( http://www.7zip.org ) and associate with .zip files
(optional)
2) Install Grabit
3) Set it up with your news server
4) Right-click on the server and do a full update
5) Subscribe to alt.binaries.emulators.mame
6) Right-click on a.b.e.m. and do a Full Update
7) When it finishes, select all 27 files, right-click on them & d/l
8) When finished, start up QuickPAR
9) Click on the 'open' button in the bottom-left corner
10) Open "MAME CHD.zip.par2"
11) If any files are red, re-d/l them
12) Right-click on MAME CHD.zip.001 and extract.

Done!

That's exactly why we torrent in this method, users can download the
lot, download just want they want or join with previous CHDs and only
leech the new.

That depends on your CPU and internet connection, though, if you did
what I said right away, this reply is somewhat moot, as you are already
d/ling your chosen chd's. <G>
