Cool Emuchina

FYI,

Emuchina.net appears to be running at full speed and is accessable at the moment

I think the real question at hand here is this:

How is it pronounced? Is it ee-moo china ? Or perhaps it's em-you china?

Exclamation Emuchina Revisited

Just curious of anyone is interested in getting the emuchina.net database, specifically the TOSEC part. I spent yesterday downloading local copies of their web pages to my computer and I'll compress and post them if somebody is interested. Of course I don't yet have the entire TOSEC list as some of the web pages can't be accessed, they appear to have them either turned off or permissions are set incorrectly

I'll post info here on what web pages I have this way you can view them locally via IE5+ from your HD instead of being online, hey some offline viewing is good

I tell ya, once you get connected to emuchina you can pretty much stay connected and it seems that their d/l rate is actually pretty high

Thumbs up Emuchina Revisited Part Deux!

Okay people, I've compressed and u/l the web pages from Emuchina.net and separated them into sub-categories. I also renamed and corrected spelling errors and typo's, at least the ones I could find

Check out the Zone for the d/l's!!!!

Well, "ee-moo sheena" would be a good compromise.
So you could even make a cool cover version of "Hiroshima" by Wishful Thinking: "eeeeeeeeeee-moo-sheena"

Sorry but you can't Emuchina.net uses a password security system that Get Right and other d/l managers balk at. You'll have to just d/l via a web browser with these pages or simply go to the #emuchina IRC channel and get them via an fserve

I totally understand why they do this too

I can only suggest getting these from your home connection, assuming that you have one that is

You may also do some checking around here and other sites to see if there was anyone that has archived these titles onto CD-R or CD-RW

Evil grin tried that

well, I've downloaded the 4 Cds available trough e-donkey... and I've downloaded all pe2000.net (quite a long time ago)... And even have got the long lost Lazarus files a long, long, long time ago.
but these files are less than the whole Tosec files... (Not that I could play them all but... hey, who does not want to complete his collection?)

But I am thinking of something thay may work... and it's name is...

BLACKWIDOW

I think I am almost there!!!!!!!!

I've got a free d/l manager called NetSpider which I think may also work with emuchina as well, I'll have to check it out

OLD PROGRAM

BlackWidow was the first program I ever used to "rip" a site... it is quite old... but I remember it used IE engine to browse through the site...

So I tried to browse through emuchina using BlackWidow as a browser... (or better, using IE engine to browse the site).. so it acts normally, the password window pops up, I fill the forms...

When I am in, I click on the "explore" button... choose to download files as the program finds them... and there I go.
It downloaded the htmls, started downloading the roms...

WARNING: BOY, DO TRY THIS AT HOME

Here is the BlackWidow HP:

http://softbytelabs.com/BlackWidow/main.html

There are 2 versions available. I am using the old one (the one I knew) you may try the new one.

Remember to set it to download only one file at a time.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the link, I see the new version is shareware, that's the reason I'm gonna try out NetSpider as it's freeware with no ad's

EDIT: check out emuchina's new TOSEC page, they added a new column now, nice info
