www.emuasylum.com down ?

I was visiting the site for their enormous collection of Rom's but it was not online anymore ? Does anyone knows what's wrong ?
Is there any other site online which has also a huge collection online ?

Yes www.emuasylum.com appears to be down.

Good thing I had managed to download the entire site's contents. If you need any game I am available.

As has been said however, Planetemu is the largest site. Pity I cannot download anything since I am on a network. Any idea how I can bypass this problem. When I press the Telecharger button I get the message 'The page cannot be displayed '

It is possible that your network has a firewall working, that will limits
your efforts on internet. I will download a lot's and post some collections
in newsgroups if there is any interest.

I have examined the way how this site works.
Pressing the Telecharger button will open een popup with advertising. If you block this, the download will not happen. So if you are using a popup blocker you will get the same problem. These popups only happen the first few times, after that I have no more seen yet.

When a pop-up is blocked, hold down the Ctrl key and left-clicking on selected link to override it.

If you are a regular visitor to Planet Emulation - To enable pop-ups from trusted sites, in Internet Explorer 7 go to the Pop-Up settings tab and add the "address of website to allow". Should be similar options if using other browsers.

I think my problem does stem from the firewall settings. Unfortunately I have no control on this since it is in a network environment.

I tries to hold the CTRL key and press the Telecharger button but I still got the cannot find page message.

Shows the restrictions of networks in the workplace these days. Means more work and less play

I'm using firefox with enabled popup blocker and never had problems with downloading games from plantemu. As komunita said, there are maybe firewall problems.

Never had problems with either Planetemu or Emu as for downloading if the site is up. I am running on my computer,Norton AntiVirus, XP firewall, Spyblocker, Spyguard, Nopops and Spybot with host protection enabled. It sucks the amount of crap you have to have running just to keep your computer safe these days.

Most likely they are still transferring to new server, etc. Been down since yesterday.

@Bigelow
Anything you wishing to download from PlanetEmu (unless you've found it another site)? Ask here, and someone might be able to upload it to the Zone!
