There are a couple of different ways to acquire Retromags releases, the most common being BitTorrent and newsgroups. (I've never gone the usenet route, so I'll give instructions for bittorrent.)

First you will need a BitTorrent client. Personally, I use Bit Tornado, but I haven't looked at different clients in a couple of years.

Next you will need to find a torrent. If you have an account at Transexual-Underground.com, you can find a nice torrent there. If not, mininova.org has some- just search for 'retromags' or 'Nintendo Power'. (If there is an official torrent, someone speak up- I don't know about it.)

After you have a torrent file, just fire up your client and start downloading. Details of this process can be found in your client's documentation or in hundreds of places online.

Relevant links-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent - Info about bittorrent with links to different clients

http://www.mininova.org/search/?search=nintendo+power - Mininova search for 'Nintendo Power'

A note about bittorrent- try to keep your bittorrent client open as long as possible, even after you finish downloading something. This is considered good etiquette and allows other people to download.

Very helpful reply, zovik.

One place I, myself, am curious about is newsgroups. Is alt.binaries.emulators.misc the top spot for mags?
