    [h=2]RetroWithin news - We're back![/h]

    Hello Everyone,

     

    After a good stretch of trials and tribulations, RetroWithin is back up and running. Same staff, same great community, and no more Hostfile hacks to get here. Please bear with us as we continue to bring all our services back up; of particular note is that presently we're unable to send emails, so new users and requests to change emails aren't working quite yet. The tracker is up and working, but you will need to either re-download your .torrent files, or update the tracker's URL for those torrents you've been seeding or downloaded prior to the outage. Those of you who are at a loss for how to do this can post in the forum or hop on IRC for some help.

     

    We're glad to be back.

    My Torrents Don't Work - Wat Do? (AKA: How to Get Your Torrents Working Again)

     

    Torrent files each have a web address programmed into them that tells them where the tracker lives and who you are, usually called the announce URL or the torrent URL. If you downloaded a torrent file before we came back up (late March, 2019), your client is looking for love in all the wrong places by trying to contact the old address. To get things working again, you can either download the torrent files again -- they'll automatically be updated with the new address -- or you can edit the 'Announce URL' in your torrent client's settings. Transmission users can do "transmission-edit -r oldurl newurl
    ", and utorrent allows mass-editing of torrent properties by selecting multiples and then going to properties. Please note that your passkey is unique to your user and remains the same; don't share it if you end up asking for help!

     

    The new announce URL is:
    https://retrowithin.com/announce.php?passkey=

     

    TL;DR: Re-download the torrent file and reload it into your client, OR edit the tracker/announce url from:

    https://retrowith.in/announce.php?passkey=
    to announce.php?passkey=
    .

    Fall 2020 Update

    Hello everyone,

    It is indeed the year 2020, and all of our lives have been affected. We are aware that some things have unfortunately fallen by the wayside as life called us away. Please keep in mind that this site is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. However, we are finding our second wind and ramping up to give this community the attention it deserves. In the coming days, a few changes related to management of the site will be occurring as we prune AFK staff members and promote outstanding members to bolster our staff ranks. Various other housework and dusting is also occurring in the background.

    Always remember that we are here to help make this community shine, and we hope that our renewed energy will result in a resurgence of energy from the community.

    Regards,

    RW Staff

    P.S. There may be a surprise at the end of this transition

    Fall 2020 Update, Part 2

    Hello everyone,

    It is with a sad heart that we say goodbye to N***, S***, and T*** from our staff. Words cannot describe the contributions these three made towards getting this site up and running and setting us forward on our current path, and we are sad to see them leave our ranks due to real-life events. We are forever grateful for their contributions and wish them all the best.

    Sincerely,

    RW Staff

    Fall 2020 Update, Part 5

    Hello everyone,

    Today, we announce a minor rule revision. We know it has been unpopular and unfortunate that some romsets have recently had to have their dats split for the site. After much discussion, we have decided to rework our rules slightly in order to allow romsets that used to be safe to be uploaded again in their entirety. As such, the rules have been updated as follows:

    All game catalog dat-based official romsets (we recognize Redump, No-Intro, Goodsets, GameBase, and TOSEC) for safe consoles, including non-game images, are considered safe.
    - Non-game catalog romsets must be checked with staff on a case-by-case basis via the Safe Content forum.
    - Example: A Redump set for UMD Video content for PSP is unsafe.

    We thank everyone for your continued support of the site, and hope everyone is safe as we head into winter.

    Sincerely,

    RW Staff

    January 2021 Site Revisions

    Hello everyone,

    Change is in the air here at RW. Can you feel it? Today, we're rolling out what is honestly described as countless categories for content here at RW along with a few renames. As detailed in the suggestions forum, these are not new safe categories, but rather better organization for current and future uploads. This revision was started by S***'s request, and we we're more then happy to embrace it and others like it. If you have a site suggestion or idea that makes our experience better; please do not hesitate to post here. Rules may be found concerning these new categories here at Windows Games and Applications.
    Finally, today we say thank you and goodbye to longtime staffer P***, who has decided it was time to step down.http://torrentinvites.org/images/smilies/beer.gif We thank him for his long time as staff and wish him luck in future endeavors. We also say thank you to i***, who has been promoted to admin.

    Thank you all,

    RW Staff
