Had to spend all day working with their tech support.
Still have 1 thing left to get out.
Ok, re-making the torrent file (again). I know you guys must be frustrated. If this doesn't work, I'll just go back to seeding from my crappy connection. The new-new link will be up in a little bit. Edited by Jindrak - 3/2/13 at 4:35pm
You can't believe how frustrated I am man, talk about crappy service here
Seriously, I'll take it when it's ready Anyway, the download will likely be a long affair anyway, and it will be a while before I can explore your demo disc fully. Thanks *a lot* for all your efforts, I really look forward to it.
Not sure what you mean. I haven't uploaded any DVD-9's, and almost none of these scene's have been uploaded before. Before I left for work this morning, saw the upload rate at 2.1 MB/s. I'll try and see if it can't go faster. The download speed for everyone is dependent on what your ISP allows for you.
Is everyone else getting good speeds? Edited by Jindrak - 3/3/13 at 9:06am
I was one of the first to start downloading and am now at 59.5%. The d/l speed hasn't gone over 1.4.mbps but is now much slower than it was. I'm not complaining though, cos I took a sneaky peek at 00056.m2ts (the pod emerges scene from War Of The Worlds) and I have a stupid grin on my face after watching that!
Pic of my upload stats:
I'll continue to upload as long as possible. (sorry my upload speeds are so crappy...blame Mr Branson for that!)
I have a very low download (I have a fiber ISP connexion), about 8 Ko/s average
Just got done talking to a rep for the seedbox. I've got the whole line, and they aren't limiting anything on their end. If you're running anything else that uses the internet, stop using it for faster speeds. Lag/ping time will also affect speeds.
Can see that 27 people have grabbed it and are downloading so far. What's the general consensus: Should I make a new thread for Volume 2, or just keep it in here?
Hmmm.... I was getting about 200 kB/s with the original download, but now with the super-duper torrent that should be way faster, I am getting anywhere from 10.7 kB/s - 17.2 kB/s and that is with more seeders.
Not sure that it was worth paying the bucks for the "upgrade".
I am not in a rush though. How the heck could I be, you put a lot of time and effort into this so I am not complaining about you, just that you might ask for some $$$ back if that is the best that they can do.
(Note: Most good torrents I can pull down at a speed of about 1.0 - 2.4 MB/s)
Anyway, I am excited to try it out when it is done in 11 weeks. LOL.
(I really am NOT upset. Just trying to joke about it.)
Sorry about the crappy upload speed... Wish there was something I could do more to help that along. Really don't want ppl to have to wait absurd times like that.
Edit: Ok, I see another thing this torrent did weird. There are 2 stream folders. The first one contains a bunch of empty, useless files. These can be deleted. There is a second STREAM folder inside the first one that actually contains the real files. Edited by Jindrak - 3/3/13 at 5:30pm
For me speed is just fluctuating widely; I had peaks at almost 500 KB/s, average is still 296 KB/s, but it sometimes go down below 100 KB/s. I've got 7 GB now, 39 to go
Wow, that's awesome. I'm at 3kb/s, 146days, so maybe it's that I'm connected to other downloaders, and you are connected to the source. Well that's good news that we're all not slow, as it will eventually distribute quick for all.
OK, finished downloaded a couple hours ago, and finally have a chance to check it out. However, it has tons of folder inside BDMV top folder, instead of the usual BDMV & STREAM folders from the others? Should I put everything inside to make an ISO/burn disc?
BTW, currently seeding @ 500kB for you guys, so far seeded 28GB since the start.
I am concerned that this seed has issues with file structure. Can someone document what is needed to fix this once the files are downloaded? I would hate for people to ruin 50 GB blu-ray discs due to a bad file structure in the torrent seed.
I have already documented what needs to be done in previous posts, but I will post again here:
1) There is another BDMV folder inside the BDMV folder. Deleted the one that is inside the BDMV folder.
2) There is a STREAM folder inside the STREAM folder. In the first stream folder, make sure that if there are any files (if there are, they will be 0kb) that they are deleted. In the second STREAM folder, CUT all the files out and place them in the 1st STREAM folder. Then delete the 2nd STREAM folder.
Once you do those 2 things, it should be good to go. Once I get back home, I will post a picture guide of what is wrong and what it should look like. I currently have no idea why the torrent changed the file structure like this, but it should be easily fixable.
