    iswipe finds everything , but downloads nothing.
    neo , it is fast and reliable, but too limited.
    limewire is awful
    the only app that was a 100% great was open ag.
    i use to love this one,but then audio galaxy ,well,was shut down.
    i hope metallica doesn't sell anymore records or shows, hehehhe.:rolleyes: :mad:

    Have you tried Acquisition? It searches the same Gnutella network as Limewire, but since it's not Java, it totally kick it's butt. Still, the Gnutella network itself is not that reliable, but going through Acquisition rather than Limewire makes it at least a hundred times better.

    Well Acquisition is still at version 0.78, but it works perfectly... you just have to wait a little while for it to find the networks... but it's not that long...

    Get it here.

    I tried XNap, but although it finds literally thousands of results for each search I do, none of them actually download... is it something I'm doing wrong? I'm guessing no...

    For me I can download more on Xnap than on acquisition, just share over 300 files and it should go well.

    Thanks for your responses.

    By the way, where you kidding us when you said that we should share 300 files at least, hehhehe.

    Thanks again

    You can get both programs, and pretty much any other program you could ever want, at versiontracker .

    As for sharing 300+ files... I don't think it's a joke. Some servers require you to share that many before they'll allow you to connect. Peronally, I'm sharing something like 550 right now, and I have few problems of that nature.
