    BitGamer

    Can anyone access http://bitgamer.com ?

    It has been down for the past day or so when I've tried to access it. Underground gamer is still up and running though and some members are also saying they cannot access it either. Lets hope it's all ok.

    The most valuable part of bitgamer has to be it's weekly update NDS scene release torrent.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I couldn't access it all day yesterday either. I just wanted to log in there to keep my account active as I haven't been to that place for a while. Tried several times yesterday, but no response from it. Hope it's ok.

    Anyone able to access Bitgamer today? All my DLs from there are sitting at 0 and I can't get on the site. I'm suspecting the server is down or something (but I was sailing a bit close to the wind in terms of my ratio).

    No. I haven't been able to access neither the site or the tracker since friday. It's not the first time it's been down for days lately either.

    Works fine now.

    We're back up and running! Apparently, our host had some unexpected problems with the datacenter we are located in. The unexpected interruption of service caused a few problems on our end, but everything should be good and well now.

    Hang in there for news on our new blazing fast server and new host!

    Bit Gamer was down a lot of last week for me. They keep having a lot of problems, and I expect it is due to the nature of their torrents. Unlike UG which mainly has smaller older system collections, BG has some quite huge torrents and trackers can easily become overloaded by such large torrent files. Pleasuredome had similar problems recently too, where the current MAME extras set had so many files in the set that the tracker crashed! They have since fixed that problem though.

    Nice, cheers.

    Curse my temper and lack of patience.... the DS romset had a name-system change. I spent a while faffing about with torrentzip and clrmamepro and the dat file to rename them all but gave up - backed the old set up to external HDD and just set out to DL the whole (newly renamed and updated) torrent again. Bit wasteful (ho ho, geddit?) but it's all included in the monthly ISP fee.

    I was having a PM discussion with Toomanymikes about bitgamer, and it's on the blink again.

    Anyone else managed to get in there recently?
