Is this guy crazy or what? Maybe he sent this to everyone in the board... >_>


My answer:

Hi.
No problem, it is always nice to help people with ILLEGAL stuff which
can take you to JAIL!
You can get the bios here:
http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45383http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45383
.
If you can't find it there, mail [email protected] , since that guy is
the guy who makes the ps2 bios.
Seeya!

Hey, I just thought this was weird because... I am no one important around here or something... if people mailed me about CT games, I would understand, but about a ps2 bios? o_O
Do they just pick random people, or something? >_>

Nah, I don't think it was that adress. I don't have the email anymore, but I searched in gmail's contact list (appears he saves a new contact every time you mail to someone) and that adress wasn't there...

It's a pain in the ass sometimes, but I can understand why they ask. I know the frustration of looking for files that are illegal. But, in any case, pestering people is a big no-no, and no matter how bad I wanted something, I wouldn't do that.

Honestly I don't know why they bother. Like I don't support piracy at all but you gotta be a real moron not to know where to look. Not that I'm saying I do, but If they want it that bad stop buggin the ngemu people and GO BUY A PS2.

But, like... I know they just don't want to search! I mean, a long time ago I usually to a portuguese emulation channel, and all day people asked where they could get gba roms, when ANYONE can find a site just by googling it, and it takes less than 2 minutes!

Why bother spending two minutes when you could spend hours mailing random people? The world may never know. I used to get mails like this, but then I got smart and didn't check any mails attached to my forum accounts. No more spam. Except for the usual ones...sigh.

Back when I was new to the emulation/soundtrack downloading, half the fun was actually in finding the sites myself. It was actually a good challenge. Finding the FF6 OSV was my crowning glory. :D :D

BTW, nowadays I buy all my CDs and games. Some people grow up, other people ... just aren't like me. *imagines himself in a mirror reality as a person sending st00pid requests to Portugese emulation channels.* :D

Good ol' times... you made me remind when I was younger, 5 or 6 years ago, I used to take A LOT of time to find a specific game... now, people want sites with hundreds of roms, but back then it was quite good when you could find any sites with some (and I mean, from 5 to 20) roms and in which all the links weren't broken.

Plus, here in portugal our best download speed was around 3~5 kb/s...

Lets do a little experiment. Someone who is in a country that is considered 'safe' from such organizations, can you send the exact same email about the bios to [email protected] and see what response they send :p?

I'm from Brazil, therefore I'm quite safe.

I'll send the e-mail right now, and I'll let you know of the answer.

EDIT:

Here's the mail I sent:

Hi dudes,

I e-mailed a friend from a forum, asking for a BIOS file for my playstation emulator. He gave me your e-mail, and told me to ask it for you, as you've all the files I need.

So I'm asking for the bios file for Playstation. Can you e-mail it directly to me? Or do you have a site where I can download it?

By the way, do you know of any place where I can download Playstation roms?

Thanks in advance for your reply,
Buck Rogers.
