Default Needless registration

It's pretty shitty to make people sign up before downloading, but it's even shittier to not tell people that's why they're getting "illegal download" errors.

Fix your site. I'm cancelling my account now.

OP is a liar.

There is no option to "cancel" accounts on a vBulletin forum (in the most odd case, delete).

<Russian accent>
I paid $100 USD for my premium Internet account.
I can troll everyone and have invincible to ban!

Still, agreed that it is kind of retarded that zilmar just leaves the public download link out there to say "Illegal download attempt" without clarifying you need to register, EXCEPT, if the reason is to make more people install 2.1 and make more people mad at his toolbar installer idea. In which case I commend him XD

Sadly emulation and PC gaming in general has always been like this, I mean you have to do a lot of research before actually playing a game. Before I play a game I need to read about common issues, download the latest patch, configuring my system and the game to my liking and that takes a week on average in the best case scenario. Emulation is far more complicated, every emu has it quirks and you cant know it all in this life even if you are willing to spend your free time on this...although I respect the dedication of emu authors for all their hard work
