Downloads section permanently down...?

Post by Jolaes76 » Thu May 01, 2014 2:34 pm

Sorry for my ignorance but I cannot find a single post about when & why the downloads section was closed.
There were some unique utilities up there which are now impossible to find, like WPCRedit input files (PCR files) for certain chipsets. (I am looking for the Aladdin V stuff)
All help in the matter is appreciated.

EDIT: OK, I found what I need in this thread : "PCR File Downloads Here" but the question about the utilities is still up...

The "Downloads Section" was closed when they changed the forum in general, making changes to block "Spammers". You found the post I made where you can download PCR Files, and if you need "WPCredit" and "WPCredit Set" or any other item you might want, send me a PM with your email address, and I'll send what I have of what you want to you.

I've been meaning to get a downloads section up and running again but I never got around to it. I'll see what I can do.

Jim,

thanks for the offer, PM sent.

Nohr,

it would be great to have the downloads back. (It used to be the only comprehensive collection of K6 utils publicly available.)
IF it can be done without letting the forums crash, of course...

now that the downloads are back, may I suggest adding two recent (and long awaited) slowdown utilities ?

One is a protected-mode tolerant multiplier switcher AND L1 /L2 cache disabler for both K6-II+ / III / III+ and Via C3 processors

http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=38613

the other is a modification of Throttle to work on Ali V motherboards ( I will ask the author for permission, but expect a yes as he already posted this over Vogons)

Ali V Throttle can be uploaded /mirrored from here:

and the new version of SetMul (v1.1) is coming soon from gerwin.

I've added both utilities to the downloads section. They can contact me if they want them removed, but I included links to their original forum threads so that should be enough.

Thank you for the suggestions. :)

Thanks for the upload!
These are the most convenient speed switching utilites for the platform on DOS, it is strange nobody cared to make them so far...
