IPS URL?
« on: January 04, 2015, 07:28:58 pm »
Hi. I've made a few IPS patches and was looking at the submission form. Could someone suggest somewhere to post the patches so I can put the URL in the description? Thanks much!

Any hosting service that permits direct file linking works. I use dropbox, but they no longer provide this service for new users. If you can't find hosting elsewhere, when you're making a submission note the scratchpad link that appears to the left. You can upload files there for submissions.

1. http://acmlm.kafuka.org/board/ go there
2. make account
3. http://acmlm.kafuka.org/uploader/ now go there, log-in
4. click "Hack IPS patches"
5. this step should be self explanatory, if not make sure you are logged in
6. after uploading file you should see it on the list, just right-clock and copy the link

I think it should work on submission form, if not try mediafire.

That "mediafire" is funny. This is the worst uploader ever with tons of commercials and other non-neccesary steps (like "are you human" verification and similar nonsense, like "wait 40 seconds" or "send and SMS" before you can download) before it is possible to download and is thus unacceptable by the Romhacking site and various other sites (all sites that have smart admins anyway). The same for Rapidshare, Megaupload etc.

The unwritten rule of most romhacking comminities is to not allow such sites. The acmlm uploader is better but it is also not allowed/accepted by this site due to unique ending of the url, which usually needs to be zip.

The url for the ips must be a direct link. Not even the standard option of the dropbox will work, since it needs to be redone (www into dl) and https into http, since secure http is not yet supported.

This is how it is done (made specifically for uploading):

I personally use Jumpshare, it seems fast, has no ads, and appears instant. But I wonder if that's because I'm already a member and I'm accessing my own files.
