This is a question that has been directed at us numerous times through our email. Well, to give an exact answer, we have not tried all SNES emulators out there to come to a proper conclusion. Therefore our answer will be based purely on out (limited) experience with PC emulators for SNES.


First of all, what is a console emulator? An emulator is a software which emulates the console environment on the PC and hence allows console games to be played on the PC. If you have owned one of the earlier consoles, you may know that games came in game cartridges. Images of these cartridges (called ROMS) are fed into the emulator and the emulator allows the game to be run on the PC.

So what is the best SNES emulator? According to our experience, it is ZSNES. ZSNES is a Super Nintendo emulator programmed by zsKnight and _Demo_. On April 2, 2001 the ZSNES project was GPL'ed and its source released to the public. It currently runs on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and DOS. Remember that this is a public beta so don't expect this to run on your machine. The program was last updated in 1Q 2007 and utilizes DirectX 9. Unlike most other emulators, ZSNES allows the usage of 2X SAI, Super 2X SAI and Super Eagle engines. (make sure you use one of these engines while playing - enable one from video options since it may be disabled by default). These rendering engines mean less pixelation at higher resolutions and smooth playability. And there is not much configuration needed, just load a ROM and play!

Download ZSNES from following locations:

Need SNES ROMS to play on SNES? Look here. - Also read the note on site "All roms are packed in 7Zip format, you may need to unzip them before you can play them with your emulator.".

Several days ago we informed our readers of the new project started by the creators of SceneTorrents (SCT); TehConnection. TehConnection is a newly established dedicated movies tracker which has shown rapid growth during the short time it has been online. Previously, the signups were open through the SCT promo link - a link given to existing members of ScT (we revealed this link here.)

Now they seem to have opened the normal signup procedure using signup.php. Better yet, the site is now on freeleech (only download counted in your stats - ultimate ratio booster) as well as 2X upload (your actual upload is doubled and recorded by the tracker - another ratio booster). So if you want to get in, now would be a great time. As we once said before, the tracker shows great promise.

How to find rips of modern PC games

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 5/26/2008 | , | 1 Comments »

A game rip is a stripped down version of a PC game with reduced file size. The reduced size is achieved by some method such as by re encoding/removing movies, removing music,extra languages etc. The smaller size facilitated ease of transmission and storage, both of which were valuable resources back at the time. Back in the late 1990s these rips were common as this was the time scene groups CLASS/BACKLASH and MYTH was active. Rips became a rarity when CLASS shut down operations after their 1234th release.


Image: CLASS logo drawn using ASCII art. Good old days! 

Are rips a thing of the past?

Now in 2008 transmission bandwidth and storage space are no more serious constraints for the average Internet user. Maybe because of this, game rips have become a rarity. However, there still are a lot of people out there with low speed Internet connections and who still seek a ripped game for a quick download without having to waste days downloading the full version.

So are game rips a thing of the past? Not really. There are still non scene individuals who rip modern PC games and release them on P2P mediums such as Bit torrent. If you know the dudes, you can get ripped versions of even newest titles such as Turok (Full - 12GB, Rip - 5.5GB) and Assassin's Creed (Full - 7GB, Rip - 3GB).

Modern game rippers

Over the past year, i have come across at least two (reliable) releasers of ripped games. These are Dopeman and Skullptura. Out of these two, Dopeman stopped releasing games since December 2007. Skullptura is more active nowadays.

Dopeman rips are uploaded to The Pirate Bay (I haven't found these rips on a private tracker yet) by a user account '420Dopeman". Skullptura rips are uploaded by account "gizmolio". You can search and download the entire release collections using the following links.

The best thing about these rips is that they dont rip movies or music (except sometimes re-encode the movies) off the games. What is usually removed are extra language streams. Check them out. One even ripped the crappy Iron Man game to 220MB :D

Also, if you know more such game rip releasers, please post here and share the knowledge.

This simple freebie lets you customize many of Vista's features.
Ignore this program's name, because if you're a true Vista expert, you don't need it. But if you're like most people --- not tried-and-true Vista pros --- and don't know how to disable User Account Control, customize the menu power button, or disable or enable the Aero interface, then you'll want this program.


Vista4Experts is kind of a treat for computer experts who don't want security center notifications, User Account Control dialogs, automatic Windows Defender scannings, automatic update installations (which cause you to reboot your system if you don't react quickly enough). People who want MSDN (or google) set as default search engine in the Internet Explorer search bar, who want the start menu power button to shut down the system instead of hibernating it, etc. These and many more fixes are included in Vista4Experts. All of these changes can be discarded, enabled or reversed. Vista4Experts is the first expert utility of its kind and works on every platform.

SceneTorrents is an elite private tracker which is not easy to get into. It is sought after by many users but only a handful manage to get in. However this post is not about SCT. This is about TehConnection; the new tracker created by the same team behind the creation of SCT. According to the administrators, TehConnection is going to be the OiNK of movies! The following is the message posted on SCT forums:

"Howdy my ScT users!
Me and the others started ScT nearly 3 years ago now, and we have achieve what we set out to do, which was to be the fastest 0day site in the world. Now the time has come for me, Feeling to put my skills and ideas into another project that I'm hoping you will come and all enjoy, The project is TehConnection. I'm giving you, the members of ScT an exclusive beta preview of the site before it opens up, here are a few more details for you.

Lets be honest, starting a torrent tracker isn't very hard nowadays, it could be setup in less than 30 minutes if you have the knowledge to do so. But after the tracker in online, the question soon becomes... what is so special about this tracker?.... What sets this tracker apart the other hundreds of trackers out there?.. Is this tracker the right place for me? For most torrenters its as easy as saying ... "ScT, SCC, ST, FTN, etc. What more do I need?".

Well, all these trackers have something in common, 0-day. And all the new trackers popping up day after day.. same thing, 0-Day. The new and upcoming this is Niche Trackers and that is what is all about. It wont be uploading the standard categories, it will be focusing on something that the staff enjoy a lot, Movies. Movies, movies and more movies, this is what we are all about! The love of movies. To put it simply, Ill use a quote from Ramsay a Administrator at TC... "Imagine the late OiNK (RIP), now imagine OiNK as an all movie tracker... there you go, you have TC. A place where you can find any movie you could possibly want, or request it and have it filled within a few short hours."

Our Formats will include only of the highest quality, the following:

[*]XviD[*]X264[*]HD[*]DVD5-NTSC[*]DVD9-NTSC[*]DVD5-PAL[*]DVD9-PAL and of course broken down further into genre for more optimum searching:[*]Action[*]Adventure[*]Comedy[*]Crime[*]Documentary[*]Drama[*]Epics/Historical[*]Foreign[*]Horror[*]Musicals[*]Mystery[*]Sci-Fi[*]Thriller[*]War[*]Western.

Now, some of you might be thinking, this is all good, but I need a lot of seeders and leechers! I don't want to join another tracker with 1 seeder and no leechers on every single torrent. Well guess what.. we aren't going for the "1337" status as many trackers choose to sway towards, we are about doing things BIG, so what do we do to solve this?

We Open Sign up till 50,000-80,000 users! Invite till 100,000! "

TehConnection is now online in beta test mode. Already the site has a good user base and a good collection of torrents. According to feeling (admin) Signups will be open till 80k users which means getting in should be easy at first.

Signups are not officially open as of yet but we have good news. SCT members are given a special promotion to access the beta. You may use the promo signup link to register an account there even if you are not a member of SCT.

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 5/13/2008 | 0 Comments »

Skype for your mobile is a mini, beta version of Skype that you can download on to your mobile. You don’t need to switch operators or get a specialised phone. The software is free – although there might be a small data charge (GPRS, EDGE, etc) from your operator if you download it straight to your mobile.


Contacts in your pocket

With your Skype contacts on your mobile, you’ll always know when your friends are online. Call them from the bus, check their presence from the park, or send an instant message while you’re sipping a latte in your favourite coffee shop – wherever they are in the world.

Talk or instant message

You can call or instant message any of your contacts who are using Skype on their computer or mobile device, including the 3 Skypephone. You can even start a group chat just like you would on your computer, so you can organise party plans from the comfort of your couch or co-ordinate fancy dress direct from the costume shop.

Will it work in my country?

In this beta version, anyone can receive calls, instant message and see who’s online. If you want to call phones, mobiles, or any of your Skype contacts, this is limited to people in Brazil, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Sweden and UK.

How to get it?

Visit and choose your phone model. (Make sure your mobile device is java enabled).

Iron Man volume 1 began in May of 1967, picking up from Tales of Suspense 99 and ran until September of 1996, when the Onslaught saga occurred.This collection includes Iron Man comics from Volume 1 (except the annuals).


Iron Man (Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark) is a fictional comic book superhero in the Marvel Comics universe. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee, writer Larry Lieber, and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Tales of Suspense #39 (March 1963). Tony Stark, after being gravely injured and forced to build a devastating weapon, instead created a suit of power armor to save his life and help protect the world as Iron Man. He is a wealthy industrialist and genius inventor whose suit of armor is laden with technological devices that enable him to fight crime.

Image for Windows (IFW) is a Win32-based drive image backup and restore utility that creates or restores a snapshot of an entire partition or volume. The backups can be saved to a set of files on a local or network drive, or directly to most CD or DVD drives (which will create a bootable restore disc). If something should ever happen to that partition or volume, you will be able to simply restore the snapshot image.


  • Total Reliability - Provides the option to verify each and every byte it backs up.
  • Convenience - Runs directly from Windows and when used with the free PHYLock add-on, it can create a true image of the Windows partition itself, without requiring a reboot.
  • Security - New in version 2: Your backups can be secured using simple password protection, or full 256-bit AES encryption.
  • Backup Changed Data - New in version 2: Differential backup option allows you to backup only data that has changed since the last full backup was created.
  • Simple, Wizard-Driven interface - Easy to use the first time, and every time.
  • Maximum Compression - By default, maximum compression is applied to the drive images you create.
  • Maximum Speed - If backup speed is paramount, you can bypass compression entirely.
  • Optical Drive Support - You can save directly to a CD or DVD disc.
  • Bootable Rescue Discs - Whenever you save directly to a CD or DVD, it will automatically become a bootable restore disc.
    -Restore Individual Files or Folders - Using the free TBIView add-on, you can view the contents of the drive image files, and optionally restore individual files or folders within them.
  • Compatibility - Automatically recognizes and backs up used area of FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, Ext2, Ext3, ReiserFS, and XFS partitions. Partitions with other file system types can be backed up in their entirety.
  • Cost Effectiveness - Includes Image for DOS and Image for Linux at no additional charge, making it a uniquely affordable and complete disk imaging solution.
  • Flexibility - Restore partitions, regardless of the file system on the partition being restored. This gives you the power to restore NTFS partitions from Windows 98 or even DOS (as just a couple of examples).
  • Wide-Ranging Device Support - Compatible with USB 2 and IEEE 1394 drives. Better yet, Image for DOS supports these drives directly, without requiring complicated driver installation. (Image for Windows simply uses the drivers already available under Windows.)
  • Power - Using Image for DOS or Image for Linux (each of which is included with the purchase of Image for Windows) versions gives you the ability to recover your data, even if Windows won't start.
  • Network Support - Save backups to any drive accessible to Windows itself.
  • RAID Support - Works seamlessly with on-board hardware- and firmware-based RAID.
  • Command Line Support - Powerful, complete command line support is built in, allowing you to automate backup or restore procedures.
  • Image File Validation - Allows you to check the integrity of the disk image files, either as part of the backup process, or at any time thereafter.
  • Restored Partition Expansion - When restoring an image, you can expand the restored partition to occupy any free space that would be left over.
  • Selectable Image File Sizes - If desired, you can specify a maximum size for the disk image files that are created. This allows you to create image files that readily fit on the removable media of your choice.

FlashBoot is a  tool to create bootable USB disks, USB Flash Memory keys and  cards mainly. What  are the benefits of such devices for you?


Let's see: unlike the most bootable medias, bootable USB Flash keys are very handy: compared to floppies, they have much bigger size, speed and reliability, compared to CD-ROMs, they are random write access devices, so you can backup your data to the same  media where  you  booted from, without need to reformat (reburn) the  entire  media. Again, the cost per megabyte for  them continues  to cut down, which is not the case for CD-ROMs and floppies.

Nokia N-Series Megapack (Games, Software, Themes)

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 5/03/2008 | | 1 Comments »

All the stuff included in this pack are for the use with Nokia N-Series mobile phones. Still, there is no guarantee that all software/games will run on your mobile. For example you may be having a N70 which has S60v2 (SymbianOS 8.1) software while the program you are trying to install requires S60v3 (SymbianOS 9/9.1). So some may work and some may not. It is up to you to find out. Also, keep in mind that installing too many software on your phone may slow it down.
