anyways, here are the disadvantage:

- Many games always have missing files
- Only about 3 completed games are on each time
- There are not a lot of PS2 newsgroup that let you download games on there
- Not all people has the same kind of Newsgroups as other people does


- The server is super fast, the speed can be comparable to ********
- No need to be in line/slots or anythings, the files is always ready to be downloads

I know that it's possible to buy a subscribtion newsgroup service for a cheap monthly fee. a buddy of mine does this and he says it's worth the 6 dollars CDN for it too. I'm not able to talk to him right now so does anyone know a good place to subscribe from?

My ISP server is fast but some artices are not there because they delete them off the server after a short period of time. I am of the understanding that these ones you can pay for keep articles much longer so it's better.

btw, this is a great tutorial for starting out.

If you don't see cd.image groups, your ISP most likely does not allow them. You can always try paid subscription newsgroups, but beware some have download limits in terms of size.
