Acquisition and Xtorrent are real eye opener for me as I have never been stolen from whil buying apps or anything else on line and now for the first time I feel the pain of being violated in a bright day light.I have to admit this must be for most part my own fault as I trusted the author on these apps and didn't hesitate to pay even for 2nd item, thinking maybe I have to pay one more time since I changed my computer, having had trouble with my old one.Yes I tried to download the damn thing to my new computer but it always brought me back to purchase page where I finally thought I should bight the bullet and buy the damn thing for 2nd time. This is way I think being native like I was make it my own fault at least partially.Still, it doesn't mean the fu*****ing A*sh****e doesn't deserve some jail time, in my opinion a few years being some gang's girlfriend in some max security jail in some nasty part of the country or better yet in some other country is a good reward for this David Wantanbe or what ever his fu****ing name is.And as for fu****ing PayPal, there should be a block on this guy on PayPal so people can't even pay for the damn app that doesn't exist. Why is PayPal allowing payment be made on this shit?There's a phone number to call for issues on the app (1-808)778-6899 try to call this number, it's such a sad jock, some bitch on heroin or some kind of drugs on an answering machine tells you few words that no one can understand , you leave a message and then wait for a call back.... Haha sure, they call back in the next life maybe.What a good way to learn not to trust anyone, it cost me around $80, I'm not ona get poor by it but this crook certainly getting rich as there are still native people like me whom pay for apps that don't exist!
just sent the develop an email in regard sot getting refunds from the crook himself!my name is jUSTIN ***** and i purchased the lifetime option for acquisiton a few years ago and it suddenly is now discontinued for the last year with no responses back from my emails. Just letting you know that if i do NOT receive a full refund from the fraud and crook David wantanbe, many many of his customers are filing a class action suit against him with the help of PAYPAL for fraud and full refunds. We will pursue this legally. Just refund our money and all will be well.we are sick and tired of not receiving responses to our emails and the fact that the developer has stranded us all in the cold and took our money. He will not prevail,we will win.email me back and i will send you my receipt and serial number showing and confirming my purchase and how much the refund should be. if not he will have to pay us all back PLUS damages for fraud and many court fees to fight us.Sincerely ALL AQUISITION CUSTOMERS WHO WERE SCAMMED
regardless of lime wire being shutdown,this app does still find connections. you must simply download and replace the app only with the new downloaded one,and launch it,your preferences will be the same and it will now connect. keep the downloaded version on your drive somewhere to do the replace trick every so often. works like a charm! the only problem we have now is with lion the Toolbar disappears after first use, so somehow the preflist file either gets corrupted or is not read correctly. When I delete org.xlife.Acquisition.plist, the toolbar shows up correctly, but when I close and open the program again, it's gone again. very annoying and if you do trash your plist file,the toolbar will come back in lion but you must enter your registration info again,which in my case works,but many others have issues getting their serials to work so just be forewarned
update: if you choose customize toolbar under the options,you can drag the search bar into its correct location and then it works as before,the only problem i have now is i can't get it to connect to gnutella
I have just re-formatted my Mac since it just won't startup anymore.I tried to re-download Acquisition from acquisitionx.com (already purchased a license before) but everytime I click on the Download link, it always redirects me to Purchase again :/A little research led me to this site, which mirrors the file:http://acqusitmac.gooofull.com/descarga_gratis
Thanks, that worked.
This author is a crook, the app is virtually discontinued and has been for quite some time in favor of newer products. Sells false licenses which claim to be a full 2.x license, yet without warning purposely moves the auto update url so the app itself can no longer locate updates. Disables all upgrades on website and redirects them to purchas links to make users who just bought the app to rebuy it just for bug fixes, even if they just purchased it months ago, which is a violation of license terms for app which purchased. This product should be pulled from mac update to spare any further users the fraud this author intends to commit.
PS, I even got the "lifetime" upgrade option. I'm currently filing a petition with paypal to have myself fullly refunded for fraud and false advertising.
Direct download link, since there's no trace of it on the site: http://acquisition.dreamhosters.com/Acquisition2.2(v223).dmg
Link is dead.
Here's the new download link (since all the download links on his site just point to the purchase page): http://www.acquisitionx.com/dmg.php
I think there are no results because of LimeWire net.
Paid version doesn't work anymore. Received email saying I've installed this too many times to allow it to be registered...so now I'm a crook! Doesn't matter that I've upgraded my Mac 3 times...now I'm a crook! I've got probably $3,000-$4,000 worth of paid software installed on my Mac for work & personal but I've chosen to "rip off" this program...so now I'm a crook! -- KMA!!
I have used this application for a long time.
It has been criticized many times for being a paid app since it connects to P2P networks.
It connects to the Gnutella perfectly and fast. It is probably the only that I know on the Mac that works perfectly. I used to use Frostwire and Limewire, but Limewire is not more and Frostwire works only about 10% of the time.
So, if you want to connect to the Gnutella network (it is still very alive) and you want to do it with style, this might be the only choice around.
Glad to hear build 223 restores Acquisition to working order. Unfortunately I don't see a way to download it. In-app update check says my version (v2.2) is the latest - apparently it does not check for the built number version.
Clicking the MacUpdate download button takes me to the Dev's web site. Clicking on the Acquisition 2.2 (223) button there instead of downloading the app, just shows me a purchase screen, as if I had to pay for it all-over again to download it. No other download option is available.
Bottom line, I'm still stuck with the non-working v. 2.2 (221).
http://www.acquisitionx.com/download.php still works though. It's strangely absent on the website though (the download badge points to /purchase.php).
No proper download link. How can I get version 2.2 (223)? Even the suggested link http://www.acquisitionx.com/download.php now bounces back to http://www.acquisitionx.com/purchase.php. I paid for version 2 of this app and want to upgrade from 221 to 223.
