    I know that asking for isos are considered illegal in this forum~

    But what about asking for
    - roms? (Those snes, nes and others)
    - homebrew games?

    roms are wayyy to easy to be googled~
    Isos however are not~

    Im pretty aware that people use torrents to get isos~
    but i cant use torrents since im behind a firewall~
    Thus i could only get direct downloads from certain webbies~

    And though ive been googling for about 2 months, i could only find 2 direct download isos sites~
    ....... which in the end are removed eventually -_-, great huh :(

    Roms are only illegal if you don't own the game, it's why those sites don't get closed, because they specify that you can only download them if you got the original game, but hey everyone knows how it works.

    It's the same with torrent sites that don't directly host the files, they are protected by law because it's a search site, but everyone knows that without those sites torrents wouldn't get around much.

    This site actually works in a similar way, here you download a emulator, and although everyone knows exactly what you will be doing with it, it's not actually illegal, same with loaders etc etc.
