Back on the band wagon
« on: March 25, 2012, 06:46:22 am »
Hello I'm Kayne.

I was a big WinMX junkie for a long time. Emule and WinMX were my go to clients for everything I couldn't find any where else. but then things changed and I fell away from the community when i kept getting infected with worms and what not

Anyway I lost over 80 gigs of the best music last year and when I decided to fire up win MX on my new system, I found that nothing was readable,  there were no files being transferred and ultimately WinMX was shut down. I uninstalled it and Joined a forum- one with a gold background- one that I cannot remember the name of. I was told that there was some attackers and that things would get better.

I am here now wondering if they have and wondering if WinMX is again a safe place to get some of what i have lost back.

winmx is being attacked yes... the fix for this is a replacement client thats in the works behind the scenes...

why a replacement client? cos when frontcode disappeared they took the code with them... leaving many things unfixable...

is it safe? thats your call to make...

Okay so the Old WinMX that I am used to is out and there is a new client. So am I to assume that the Community patch is also out and that i shouldn't bother with anthing from Vlad.44? Where do I get this New WinMx Client?

and thank you fro responding .

There is a replacement client currently in development but it may be months before it is released. Be patient. All good things are worth waiting for.  Nothing great in life comes easy.
