No,i have my own server. And you will be able to download the files simultaneously,at a much faster speed with no need to wait.
yeah i have a Windows Home Server also if you want my help hosting it

I'll check in my archives to see if it's still there. If not then there's nothing i can do. I don't even own a PSP anymore.

ReCreate (author)  joaoasduarte3 years ago
Im sorry. The link should be up. This is horribly old. not sure what happened to the host. I'll look into it.
Holly crap!!!
That realy works!!!!
Still wait for the Windows 95 Image File!
windows 95 link is down i need a copy of 95
what do if it says "This game could not be started. The data is corrupted"?
I JUST LOST THE GAME. YOU FOOL!
ReCreate (author)  M4industries3 years ago
But I, I WON the game, you know why? I modified the game, whenever you think of the game now, you win, and everyone else, relative to you, loses. Meaning that i win, and you loose.
Please don't try to start that on 4chan! The game is only over when the Prime Minister of the UK declares on television that the game is over.
YOU FOOL!! why would you want to start THE GAME!?
ReCreate (author)  trickster2084 years ago
That means your PSP has the wrong firmware, The one that comes with the PSP when you buy it new. What you have to do is follow a custom firmware tutorial somewhere or apply a GEN patch.

ReCreate (author)  zack2474 years ago
Yes, I think the web browser was added in the firmware version 2.x. (this ible was done long ago, before i knew that)
