I have created another mirror. Mega.co.nz is a very fast and free server too. Without any ads and waiting time, no subscription needed.

4shared was really pain..

Thank you for all your efforts !!
When I initiate the download (Google Chrome, WinXP) the download starts, and it does downloads, hoverer after a while (when a download is at say 40%) my RAM memory is way-up (used over 1GB) and computer starts swapping (using the swap file/virtual memory) and everything slows down (so I have to cancel the download).

This is happening ONLY when I click to download that file (from Mega) - not on any other sites...

Did any others had similar experiene?

(I run only 512MB of RAM on WinXP, about 100mb is used, about 400MB is free, and it newer goes up above say 600mb of used RAM so I really do not need more RAM).
Except maybe in this case? :(

To download THAT - 4gb is not enough???

Or - you ment - 4gb is not enough generally speaking?

I run dualboot on my laptop with the following OS-es:
Plain DOS
Win98
WinXP SP1
WinXP SP3

On WinXP SP1 (no antivirus, no residental processess) RAM usage is about 80mb ony, Netscape (browser) takes ONY about a couple of MB of ram, CPU is at 0 - 30% and 512mb of RAM is more than enough :D

O WinXP SP3 (disabled antivirus, Sygate firewall turned ON) RAM usage is about 120mb only, also Netscape (browser) takes about a couple of MB of ram, and again 512MB is more than enough :D

Youtube, PhotoShop, KMplayer - works great with (sufficient) of 512mb of ram.
(again, NO antivirus!)

Generally speaking. :)

Maybe you have dial-up connection too? I'm not sure but older computers may take longer than expected and cause a time-out failure (?)
If you have a more modern machine try downloading with that and then transfer to the WInXP machine.

I'm not sure if this is available for download elsewhere(?) It was available at some different places then became unavailable.

I'll have a look and see if it'll download for me.

Hi Guys, Just a quick message to say that the Gamebase project is not dead but currently in Limbo. I've just been through a rather unpleasant relationship break-up and have been forced to sell my house. I should be moving within the next four weeks and will hopefully be able to get my life back on track once I settle into my new home. I occasionally work on Gamebase, there's been about 30 new games added in the last year ( :oops: ) but I still have a lot of material to work with. Hopefully I will find time to work on a new version later this year. :wink:

Wow. Hope things calm down for you and you get back to a healthy situation. Lot of stress selling a house without the other stuff to deal with !

On the download front, I used the Dropbox link and it work fine.
