Sept 20th at 12:00 somewhere time WinMX had to shut down... on Sept 23rd at 12:00 somewhere time Winmx users said FUCK that and reopened it....  


As you know the peer caches that allow us to connect to other primaries on the WinMX Peer Network where forced to shut down over impending litigations.  As soon as this started the GREAT community that we all know and love came together to find a fix.  Approximatly 6 hours ago a fix was made by Mr Drac.  A long time WinMX programer.  His great work enabled other programers like our own KM to develope a patch that will work!!!

You can get this patch from out site at Host File

Take this file and unzip the contents to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts  (etc is the name of the folder.  And rename your old hosts file to 'Oldhosts' to save as a back up and dump this in your folder.  There is no need to restart the computer however, you will need to restart your WinMX.  You should be able to make a primary or seconday connection with this in place.


Viva La WinMX

maybe it's me or my system but when i unzipp the host file it opens a box that says "File hosts is password protected. please enter the password in the box below" and give option for ok/skip file/cancel. I got here buy saving to folder above instaed of opening right away and having it go to a temp file. should it try it that way?
