So you guys who still use WinMX.....

How do you still use it? I can't connect to any networks since it went kaput.... so what do I do?

Specifically, I want to download raw doramas and stuff from japanese people. I can't get WinNY to connect to any nodes that seem to have anything. I basically get no results when I search... so there must be a different way.

it's weird...my friend who use the english version of winny find always thing there..(for ex she found HYD drama few hours after it aired..)
You sure you have the updated nodes?

I'm not sure of anything. All I know is that I can never find anything.

I gave up on WinMX. Now I use BearShare, and it's even better. I found all the songs I want and the download speed is amazing. Granted that you'll need to install this third party program thing called "Save", and it supposedly pops up ads on IE once in awhile. I just disabled that program from starting up at msconfig and took care of that. :D


Give it a try if WinMX still doesn't work for you.

There's a patch that will let you connect to the servers. If you need it, let me know.

I do! I tried to download it at one site, but the site was down or something...

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 24th, 2005 04:48 am (UTC)

I don't think WinMX works for me. But there is this program call clubbox, it works every well. XDD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 24th, 2005 04:48 am (UTC)
I can't use the clubbox site. X_x It's all in chinese.
☆花☆huahua on October 24th, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC)
Oh nono, it's not in Chinese, it's Korean. ^^" Andf I can't read as well.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 24th, 2005 01:58 pm (UTC)
Chinese or Korean, it's the same to me. ^^;; I can't read either of them.

I know of three ways that are supposed to work:
1) use the OpenNap servers (I found and tried one. Everything had huge wait times T_T )
2) there was a list of IPs to add to your Windows' Hosts file (didn't work for me)
3) some patch I've seen mentioned a few places, but never actually linked to... (the one rogueleopard posted is probably it)

I've tried using LimeWire since WinMX went down. It's decent, but WinMX is easier to use and more user friendly.
