I installed GB frontend and GB64 v05 database. Downloaded v05 screenshots and also got HVSC 48. Not sure what to do the the .rar files?

ok.. got the screenshots working. I notice the database has all the games and also has the name of the file for each game.. but how does it handle it if the name of the file I have is different for that game?

You need to also download the official set of games... which you can find on all good eMule and BitTorrent uploadings...

you can find most of the games right here
press the GBC button on this page and follow the links for each game.
or you can get the whole collection from "emule"
you will need this program...

http://www.emule-project.net/home/perl/ ... m=download

after you have installed emule.
set your firewall to accept connections for it.
read all the instructions.

copy these links into emule:

ed2k://|file|Gamebase64_GB64_v05_Main.rar|132474910|A2A9BF834FDDCEADD56023619BC1D28B|/
ed2k://|file|Gamebase64_GB64_v05_Games.rar|578936563|0801896B5FB230217657129021D57774|/
ed2k://|file|Gamebase64_GB64_v05_Extras.rar|3866000442|074CC3A58D948AFAA1787FD990C58584|/

click on the files to start downloading.
wait....

What might be the problem.

1) check your firewall to see if is accepting connections
on the port you are using for emule.
try and download another file to test it.

2) no one is sharing the files at the moment.

3) you are in a queue waiting to start the download.

please note emule is very slow.
it might take a few days to download the gamebase.
so leave your computer on overnight for best results.
and make sure you share ratio isn't too high in your favour.

if you still have no joy.
you could always PM me. :wink:
