RomUlation uses a point system to prevent download abuse. We host a large number of files, and without the point system in place, a small number of greedy users would saturate the connection and create a poor experience for everyone else.
When you sign up at RomUlation, 10,000 points are credited to your account to get you started. Every megabyte you download requires 1 point. For example, an 80MB file will use 80 points. If you run out of points, there are a variety of ways to earn more.
- Regular members receive 500 points credited to their account every 24 hours up until 50,000 points.
- Become a premium member! Premium members do not require points to download at all! See the benefits available to you as a premium member here.
- Upload Screenshots! Each screenshot that you upload and get approved earns you 50 points.
Points are removed from your account as soon as you begin your download. The point use for that file will then be set to zero for 72 hours, enabling you to redownload the file in case of a broken download or interrupted transfer. You can, however, always resume a download at no point use and, therefore, we recommend always using a download manager capable of resuming.
