Re: I CAN NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE WINMX!!!!!!!

I am a first time user to WinMX. Can someone please tell me how to use WinMX. I thought it would be simple but everytime I click download it starts to download and then eventually the download turns red and I don't know what to do.

Thanks

why is my music downloading so slow and why does it always say queing.

Why is my downloading going so damn slow and why does it always say remotley queing. i better not be paying for this. i just startes 2 days ago. help

Re: why is my music downloading so slow and why does it always say queing.

Reply to all who are confused to this Brilliant software. WinMX is COMPLETELY FREE to use. When the software is started at first it asks you what connection speed you have 56K, 128K, Cable, DSL, ADSL etc. If you are unsure simply select UNKNOWN and then select a username to be displayed online. All this software does is shares your My Music folder or any other you have allocated for peer2peer. You goto the main page and click on the search and enter the name of the group, artist or song and it will search everyone who has the network with the search parameters you have entered. If there is then simply click on the selected song or artist and click Download ( or double click ) and it will start to download. Click on the Transferes button on the main page and this will diplay all your current downloads. Remember that you can only download the song if the person you have selected to download from is currently online at the same time otherwise you will be placed in a queueing system along with others. If you are in a queue then you could serach for similar songs and this might resolve it.

Hope this helps

possible help understanding how to download from winmx-READY?

i may be able to help.i have had WINMX for about 2 months now.i have figured out some things.the songs that are in red or say for example--23 in queue means there are 23 people in line for that track ,you will be #24.just be patient and your turn will eventually come up.instead go for the songs that are in green or say for example-2 of 6 available.

click on the song then click "download" on the choices above.if its being nice it should say "waiting for network reply" if it doesnt work try another song available.if it does work it will say "connecting".when a blue box comes up youve succeeded and it should start with 1% then 2%.this means how much of the song is downloading.to the very right of the screen you will see the "timeL" with green or flashing numbers underneath it {meaning how much time is remaining}.sometimes 33:00 or 25:00 for example means how long it will take to load.if it says say 2 hours or so forget it go for another one.i'm understanding with my dial-up's slow-ass connection i have i have to be patient.its frustrating i know but give it a chance i have hundreds of songs just in a short time and you will to.if you have a burner and want to burn these songs to disc and may not know how,e-mail me back.hope this was helpful.have a good one

Re: my songs will not download

Re: I CAN NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE WINMX!!!!!!!

How do I queue up a selection

Hi, I started using winmx and kind of know how it works, but if i say start tonight and select a list of songs - they higlight in blue and are remotely queued I get that bit, I move up the list and sometimes get the song if I make it to the top of the queue. BUT if I log off and come back later then those same seections are stil on my list and I can click find sources now, but wil this mean its looking to see if that user who has the song is online then and there? And since the songs have "turned red" is it possible to get them queued again and into the blue again? I hope this makes sense cheers.

smeagol

i haven't seen smeagol on the board in awhile. you still alive out there dude?? :-) ,, any way i need help deciding which strings to get. i have an ibanez icx and,, well whut ones would you recommend?

Re: smeagol

I usually just go for D'Addario or GHS. I tend to change strings frequently and can't afford all the high end stuff on a regular basis. As far as the guage of the strings I can't really say without more information on your playing style, type of music you like, scale length of the guitar, etc.

Re: smeagol

D'addario 9's are a pretty nice gauge and brand. :)

Bring back the days of Guitar GODS!!!!

Bring back the days of Guitar GODS!!!!

nOW A DAYS THERE ARE no guiatr heroes just a bunch of kids playing simple power chords, nobody's cultivating the same musicianship that Yngwie had, the grace of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani's sonic sound and the Shred attack of Petrucii,Vinnie Moore, Paul Gilbert,Van Halen Iron Maiden, The awsome leads of Marty Friedman, Tracii guns, Blues Sraceno,Vito Bratta, Bettencourt, And many great talents, it seems that only Zakk Wylde is the one standing, glory to him, and no one in the mainstream these days can match his guitar playing,. All of true guitar fans outhere wake up and be a real, LEAD guitarist,it's not just that you're loud it's the melodic and fast furious solos and a hard drineg riff...Power to metal guitars that will always reign.

Re: Bring back the days of Guitar GODS!!!!

You must have forgot kurt hammet, eric clapton, b.b king, joe satriani is still around playing, mark tremonti.

guitar gods

the guy from metallica sucks ass he is the worst guitarist i have ever heard play. I think Jimmy Page should be in the number 1 spot for guitar god of all time. the guy from metallica (who i cant remember the name of) shouldn,t be a guitar god at all.

'Fender' Telecaster without a serial number? Is it a copy?

I bought a second hand Fender Telecaster and the logo looks real on the headstock, but I can't find a serial number on it anywhere. It says 'Made in Japan', that's all. Is this is a copy passed off as the real thing? Is there another way to tell apart from the serial number? Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: 'Fender' Telecaster without a serial number? Is it a copy?

HI. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR TELECASTER IS A FENDER TELECASTER BUT AS ITS MADE IN JAPAN MEANS ITS A COPY .BEST WAY TO CHECK IF YOU HAVE A REAL FENDER OF ANY KIND IS LOOK AT YOUR BRIDGE AND ON YOUR BRIDGE SETTINGS IT SHOULD BE STAMPED FENDER ON ALL OF THEM .THE OTHER WAY TO SEE IF ITS REAL LOOK AT THE BACK OF THE HEADSTOCK AND ON EACH MACHINEHEAD FENDER SHOULD BE STAMPED ON EACH of the MACHINEHEADS

American texas special stratocaster ??

I bought a used am. stratocaster with serial number begin with Z1 ( 2001 ? ). Excellent condition, only one string guide, white pearl shell pickguard, no TBX or deltatone, only seven pin of selector wired, no inscription on back of pickups. Nice tone, but what about these pickups ? I think Texas Special but how can I be sure ? Can it be an AM standard ( but no writing on pickups ! ).
Thanks a lot.

Re: American texas special stratocaster ??

Hi,

guess you are right. I also owning a strat beginning with z1 with the same features you have talked about. It is a New American Standard Stratocaster Texas Special manufactured in 2001.

Best,
Michael

boss gt6 and marshall head compatibility

I have Just bought a BOSS GT6 effects processor to use with my Marshall DSL head to find that when i try to use the effects loop on the back of the amp to connect the GT6 up it doesn't allow me to use all the patches. This does not occur if I use the input at the front of the amp. I have talked to a guy at Roland who tells me the two units are inconpatible, but not one of the sales people in all the shops I have called are aware of theis problem. Has anyone else had a similar problem and what did you do!
