    I have to say that my upload was also never really high, but seeding since years 24/7 gives obviously a good ratio

    You upload whore Demon Cleaner!

    My upload has speeded up, going at 40-50KB/s on the MAME 0.138 set. So it will get me on my way!

    Great, and just like Harrison mentioned, the MAME sets are the best to seed, as they are also for free, you will always have leechers around. The key is really to leave the PC on 24/7.

    I'm a bronze member!!!!

    I've only downloaded the MAME v138 ROM set (not bothered about most CHD's) and the MAME Extras Core.

    Is the MAME Extras Alternatives worth downloading? The core pack seems to have everything I need.

    Also, any other recommendations from the site?

    The alternate set is not crucial to have, as the core one has really everything you will need together with MAME.

    You have to see what's for free, that's always worth downloading

    Otherwise it really depends in what you're interested, as I think that f.ex. the pinball stuff is worth downloading. Future Pinball, PinMAME, Visual Pinball and Visual PinMAME.

    They do have a lot of great stuff to download, but some of the torrents are now huge (after years of combining different parts for each platform).

    The Amiga torrents are a good source if you don't have an up to date TOSEC set. They have the only complete TOSEC CD Amiga set which includes CD32, CDTV and Amiga CD, so that is worthwhile. I seed that one all of the time alongside the MAME one so you would have at least one source.

    There are large collections for a lot of other systems too, so it depends what you are in to. Personally I would like to have the lot, but some of the CD collections are huge and really eat into your ratio and upload credit so it is good to be careful.

    Remember though, that you don't have to download the complete torrent each time. When downloading with uTorrent you can pick the files within the torrent to download, and ignore the rest. So if you were only after specific games or files in a torrent you can grab just those and avoid wasting download credit on the rest.

    As for the MAME extras. The Core set is really all that is needed. The alternative set is just that. Alternatives of exactly the same content, so it might be different icons for each game in MAMEUI for example. Depends how much of a completest you are.

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

    But have you also visited and joined Underground-gamer.com? A site that sits very nicely alongside Pleasuredome and uses up your connection just as much!
