MAME Intro Movies 106 *out now
« on: November 07, 2005, 10:45:12 pm »
Well finally got around to creating the first batch of intro movies for use in mamewah etc.  These have been done using buddamame and mamemoviemaker.  Thanks to Buddabing and Silver for getting that all going.  NIVO and I have been going through the vids cropping them to show game play action instead of the whole intro sections (if you want the whole thing then you might consider doing it yourself as it creates very large files).  We managed to get quite good quality vids at a good compression and have been able to maintain the games aspect ratio.

These packs don't include unplayable or unable to capture.

Please don't ask when the next lots will be coming out - takes a fair amount of time to produce the initial vids, check them, fix if needed and then crop the length to something suitable.

Please post here if there are any problems with the vids or any suggestions.

[romsite name redacted] is now all set up.  Future releases will go through there first as the tracker is excellent. 

If you previously downloaded it for 098 - unzip all the vids to a single folder - then point the torrent at it.  No more individual folders and zips.

The complete set is up
[romsite link redacted]

Enjoy

What video player is required for these?  I tried opening them in windows media player, but they didn't open.

Well, I looked closer and the bittorent has been running for 15 minutes without downloading any files.  What I see in my folder are the shells where the files should go.

Any idea why I haven't downloaded anything in this time?

Not too sure - does the torrent say anything like not connected to tracker.  Does it see any seeds or peers.  I know that NIVO and Mikey have both got the full torrent now from me.  If you go to the chatroom may be able to help more.

Currently have a few people leeching from me - can I ask that once complete leave it open for as long as possible.  My upload is quite poor so it can take a long time to get all the files just from me.  The more seeders available, the sooner I can stop seeding and release the new movie packs.

Cheers

does the ssf.txt file you posted in another thread reflect the cropping you've been doing?
I don't mind generating the movies myself with MMM but I definitely prefer the cropped version.

Also, nobody is seeding right now.


also, interesting choice of hosting site.

I am seeding both vid packs and will be for a while it seems until I can convince other people to seed as well.

I don't think the ssf.txt file had any impact on what I was doing as I cropped the length manually to a short clip.  As I'm scrolling through the games list I just want to see what the game play is like - not "Winner's don't use drugs" campaign or some of the massive intro movies.

I like what you did, it really works better than the raw videos for use as a preview in a front-end.

When can we expect to see B-Z ?   ;D

I'll be seeding too for the foreseable future, I do stop the bittorrent client from time to time, like when I'm playing online (can't waste that precious fragging bandwidth you know) so be patient and it should be up again.

currently trying to finalize a few for B and C.  But have had a slight setback as the resolutions have been coming out wrong for the 30 odd vids I created today - need to redo them now.

Just thought I'd mention that these vids are 256x256 - its mentioned in the torrent info, just thought I'd mention it here, in case anyone was keen on the aspect ratio...

EDIT: ignore above, I was talking crap.

Silver, I'm not sure what you mean? at first glance the aspect ratio looks right, vertical games like 1941 are not "squished" for example.

Sorry I've been a dunce here. I just read in the torrent info that the vids are all 256x256 (which could kill the aspect)....

... but of course they are not, they are in fact MAX 256 by 256. (eg 720 is 256x192) in order to maintain aspect ratio. And I should know as I helped out adding support for the filter that would resize them in this way. I'm a dunce....  ;)

yes silver :) as you recall we had this done this way in order to maintain a certain window size as well as keep the ratio as proper as possible. If anyone hasnt seen these new vids yet, you should. They are 10x better in quality and serve purpose to display gameplay, not some long intro that you watch a game startup sequence only to see no gameplay at all.

Once I get screenshots done I plan to post as well, although im not fond of seedig a torrent for distribution, perhaps I could get some one to host the screen packs.

It would be great if you saved the start and end frames of these so that low-bandwidth people can generate their own............

i do believe cd has kept all original vids before cropping, i would think its possible to get the key frame data as well. Will look into it.

In terms of start and end frame - all I used was the nearest key frame in virtualdubmod either side of the "gameplay" part.  I tried to do this as quick as I can and therefore didn't note the frame numbers.  I could do it from now on if it could help.  But I don't know if it would work as I'm getting the frame number from a video already produced by the mamemoviemaker process and not based on the exact start frame of the game - if that makes any sense.  B C and D are nearing completion

At "worse" someone could generate the full video then post process it with your frame info (I assume this can be automated with vdub).
Of course ideally you want buddamame to only record the interesting part.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I am currently downloading and uploading the sets.  I'm on a laptop without a good home network connection, so I can't let it go 24/7, but I'll try my best to continue seeding after the D/L finishes.

These files are very well done.  Thanks a million cdbrown and NIVO.

Cheers,
KenToad

Downloading...

Keep 'em coming

I have been seeing the previous two and will seed this one too. I guess it's getting some traffic since I have "served" many gigs for those two file already. I'll be seeding the new packs as they come too (with the caveats already expressed in my previous post, seeding gets put on hold while I play online, but at least my server is on 24/7).

Yes keep seeding those other ones.  I need people to keep 0-9 and A as seeds while I upload the all new B pack to whoever wants.  See the first post to get the link.

A few of the mame vids have also been posted on a newsgroup which is probably why you're seeing the increased upload.  Keep seeding people  :D

I don't know if this is a good time or place to ask this question, but, how could I take my custom graphic (.psd/.jp/or.bmp file) flip and rotate and do cool things in an .mpg or .avi file?
Is there any freeware programs that I can do this with?

I would start another topic for off questions, only because this thread is going to get a lot of attention.  Check out how many times the moviemaker thread was replied to for example, and at this point there is only four sets out for this thread.

My Torrent client reports I'm the only seeder on 0-9 and A. It's been known to be wrong before, but for those of you new seeders, you may want to seed those two in priority.

Well I have been the seeder on all 4 since the beginning and most of the time it said there were no other seeders even though I know there are more.  I have stopped 0-9, B, C and will very shortly stop seeding A.  See first post for the new D pack

yeah, that's why I mentionned that my torrent client has been know to be wrong.
Downloading D now, I think I'll keep seeding everything unless my computer starts complaining about it. I may have to limit number of connections per torrent after I reach 8 torrents, but so far it seems that traffic is relatively light (if 5 Gigs uploaded since the beginning can be considered light)

Some of us have slow uploads and we are doing what we can, but it seems we need more distribution. Thanks again for folks helping us get these going, keep it up and seed when u can!  :D

As promised the new F pack has been released.  The following packs may take some time to process but will be done as time permits.

circo - if you want to place a link to this thread or link to the torrents from your site then I can't see a problem.

hiya kane. I have personally posted the torrent links in newsgroups to help attract traffic and get more folks in sharing to get this out into the community. Cd and myself wont be uploading to newsgroups as we are not only doing the vids and screens still, but trying to seed as much as we can. If anyone else would like to upload packs, feel free to do so. All we ask is that you keep them in tact as you received them, and no commercial releases. :) Cheers!

Thanks for doing that - but you're going to have to update it to cover the new G pack

I started to download some of the earlier ones to check it out, but I don't think anyone is seeding any or the earlier torrents.  I'll check again at lunch to see if there were any changes.

Also, maybe I missed it, but would you mind telling how you are recording and at what settings.  I seem to remember you talking about the quality when doing the attract modes using Buddabing's tools, but don't believe you ever posted your settings.

Same here.  I've tried to DL the 0-9 section but keep getting a "timed out" error.

Is anyone still seeding the early vids...say maybe tonight?

I have been seeding all packs continuously, except for a couple of hours here and there.
The G pack was slow to start for me, I was guessing timeouts to the tracker too.
Did you try and leave it on for several hours, or did you give up after a few minutes thinking nobody was seeding?

I should just leave it on even though I'm getting the "timed out, can't connect" error message?

Also, I'm not sure what website to go to find the files on a.b.emulators.mame.  What is the exact address for this newsgroup (not familiar with newsgroups)?

Yes, timeoue and connect errors can be quite common on some trackers. eventually it connects and then it doesn't matter as much if it times out again because yout at least have a list of peers and seeds.
Those messages could indicate other problems, so if you have never used bittorrent before, it could be something on your side, such as bad firewall settings.

You need a newsreader like Agent, xnews, or even Outlook. Some internet providers (like Verizon) allow free access to news groups,  others don't offer anything and you have to pay to  subscribe, while others (like Comcast) let you download only 1Gig of data a month. Check your internet providers site for more info.

After letting the bittorrent run for a while, it downloaded the first set. 

I'm going to download the rest and will seed for as long as I can.

I am going out of town for a week so I thought I would keep my computer up and seeding these while I am gone.

I haven't downloaded a single byte yet so I hope other people will start seeding so I can get them.

I'm glad someone has actually put some code I wrote to good use.

I have been seeding 0-G packs as they became available.

Right now my torrent client only see 47.8% availability on H and 0% on I, so cdbrown and friends need to seed for at least a little while longer.

It'll get there eventually. Compared to the time it takes to generate the movies yourself, this is still fast and convenient.

I deleted the previous I pack on ---No torrents please - thanks!--- and created a new one.  Everyone will need to re-download this new torrent file.  I stuffed up the title by saying there  was 34 vids when there is only 33 like the last release.

Bad news is this didn't fix the problem - looks like the whole tracker is down as none of the torrents are connecting.  I'll leave them going and hopefully it'll fix itself up.

REMEMBER - GET THE UPDATED I PACK TORRENT

Is anyone still seeding the B-G packs?  I haven't been able to connect for about 5 hours.

I've been seeding the 0-9 and A packs, but need to DL the others so I can seed them as well.

Can confirm from many users that the main tracker seems to be stuffed.  I will keep these torrents going and hopefully it will fix itself.  Please be patient. 

Unless someone knows of a good reliable tracker?

I is now going for me and reporting 171% availability.
H is still stuck with only about 48% availability though.


EDIT: Now seeding I and my client sees a seed on H, so life is good.
EDIT gain: now seeding H nad I.

I have talked with the guys over at [romsite name redacted] and will post them up there but as a single torrent and will update it as you put out new sets.  They won't allow 26 different torrents because of the difficulty of seeding them.  I will keep the directory stucture intact so it will eventually have a directory for each letter.  Whith the way they watch ratios it will stay seeded for a long time.

You put them wherever you want, you just tell mamemwah where to find them through the mame.ini file.
What you do is assign movies to an artwork number (last line below), usually the artwork number you would use for your snaphots. When mamewah displays the artwork, it looks for a movie first, and if it can't find it it displays the static picture instead.

In my case, see below, my snaps are in d:\mame\snap and the movies are in d:\mame\movies and the snap/movie artwork is artwork1

Code: [Select]
### Artwork Locations ###
artwork_1_image_path                      d:\mame\snap
artwork_2_image_path                      d:\mame\marquees
artwork_3_image_path                     
artwork_4_image_path                     
artwork_5_image_path                     
artwork_6_image_path                     
artwork_7_image_path                     
artwork_8_image_path                     
artwork_9_image_path                     
artwork_10_image_path                     
movie_preview_path                        d:\mame\movies
movie_artwork_no                          1

There are other movie related options in mame.ini such as how to mix movie sound, what volume to use, etc...

You can also use the movies in the screensaver, see that section and the mamewah doc.

Hope that helps.

Please let us know when that happens, because I have had ZERO luck getting these packs.  They have been dragging for days and I haven't completed a single pack... all in the time that I've downloaded about 30gigs of other stuff....

[romsite name redacted] DOES require registration, the reason the torrents there are so fast and stay seeded so long is because in order to stay an active member you need to give back what you take.  So you will typically se double digit seeders and torrents will last for months.  So if you are just a leecher stay away.  For the rest of us it is a great site with good speeds and very healthy torrents.

Papa, why if it's free? It is an EXTRTEMELY nice run site.

It's a shame people are not seeding these more. I thought this community would support each other a little more than is being shown by the current seeding activity.

It feels like there is something wrong with the tracker.  Several people claim to have been seeding all weekend, as was I.  If things were working right, I think people should have seen several seeds.

I've never used it myself, but maybe [romsite name redacted] is worth a try.

My share ratio is >30 on the first packs that were posted, and I've "served" 15G already over all packs, so the current tracker must be somewhat working  ;)

Can never trust those tracker stats, some of the packs are showing they've been downloaded only a few times when I know there had been at least 15 peers connected to me at one point.  I also notice that some people that are unable to connect directly to certain seeders, but get fed through other peers.  For all those that seed - it is much appreciated.

Now - go get J pack now.

Ok the torrent is also now located over at [romsite name redacted], it is a single download for #-I (I will update it to J as soon as I get that one.  As new sets are added all you will need to do is start the new torrent and it will get the additional files.  Once I get her fully seeded it should be a very dependable torrent for quite some time.  I will go ahead and keep it updated as you release the new sets.  You can find the link to the torrent over at www.emumovies.com, and I will keep it updated.

so is this becoming the "official" source for those packs? it seems counterproductive to have multiple sources given the relative low volume on those things.

I know in my case, the first torrents on [romsite name redacted] just weren't working for me.  I'd much rather d/l from [romsite name redacted] where I have gotten videos from before.  Not to mention that [romsite name redacted] is FULL of people that will seed because of the ratio system, and will just simply be more interested in these types of files.

---No torrents please - thanks!--- is not focused towards people using mame/emus.... [romsite name redacted] is.

This can also happen if you dont have a decent member status..... eg - if a basic member - you can only DL 2 torrents, as you get a better share ratio, your member status increases and you can DL more torrents at once. So if you have 3 torrents and only crappy memer status - you would get an error........ i think thats how it goes!!

Im currently DLing the #-J with no probs at the mo!

I just realized I'm not seeding properly. Azureus (my bittorrent client) downloads to a folder called "Incomplete" and then transfers the torrent to the finished torrent directory when it's done.
Since I had already downloaded everything, I copies it to the Incomplete area, then Azuereus verified it, then tried to move it to the finished area, but in the process it got a "too many files open" error, so the copy didn't work, and the "finished" copy is mostly empty.

Not sure how to fix the "too many files open" issue. I'm guessing Azureus is trying to copy the files faster than the disk can write, and since this torrent has many hundred files, it eventually runs out of file handles? What worries me is that the problem is going to get worse as we add more directories (I'm guessing the full set is about 2500 files?)

I've been trying to download all of these since last night- hardly anyone is hosting (seeding?), so I'm only pulling a couple of them at 200Bps (NOT KBps!)- the others aren't even downloading. Can someone seed for us?  I'll be happy to seed once I got them- I'm already seeing 2 of them now- I'll seed for however long I need to.

Also- what's this [romsite name redacted] website?  Anyone have a URL?  Are these exact files being hosted there as well?
Thanks!  You guys rock!

the link to [romsite name redacted] is available at [link removed] in the left column.
the files are identical, basicaly the [romsite name redacted] torrent is one torrent with all the directories from the individual torrents in it.

For those that want individual packs, please list the ones you want, most of the people that are seeding on [romsite name redacted] (13 or 14 of us) can easily just open up the torrent packs required to help you out.

This appears to be a common problem with Windows XP and Azureus (some other clients also). If you haven't taken a look, give BitComet a try. You'll be happy you did.

Using Linux.
I think this is a bug with Azureus, and since it's platform independent, the bug applies to all platforms :)

I can always use the command line bittorrent, but I have gotten use to Azureus.
Also, they have a number of extensions (the distributed databse for example) that lets you downlaod a torrent even if the tracker is down as long as you connected to it at least once.

I started the individual A and B again. Hope that helps. Make sure you keep seeding when you're done.
EDIT: I am capping the upload speed to 5kB/S on the individual packs. you would probably get better speed on [romsite name redacted], but at least you can get it here if you're patient.


I also figured out how to beat Azureus into submission and I'm seeding on [romsite name redacted] too. Eventually I will only be seeding on [romsite name redacted], except for the brand new packs that have not made it there yet (that's why I'm seeding K and L currently)

When a new torrent comes out, stop your old seed, download the new torrent and point it to the same folder as the original torrent. It will only donwload what has been changed or added.

Man you know how to keep a guy busy, do you guys think I should update the [romsite name redacted] torrent with every release or wait for two or three before I create the new torrent.

I don't know how long it will be between releases - all depends on the size of each pack.  I think you should add M to the pack, but then put N and O together as they'll be smaller packs.

I'm having a hard time seeding this - I've got it running, seeing 6 seeds and 11 peers, and I'm not uploading anything.

Its weird - I've got another torrent that will upload 50kb/sec at the same time if I run it, but I don't seem to upload with this one....

yes - some times i get the same where there's peers but not uploading to anyone even though there's plenty of bandwidth being shared around.  I wouldn't worry about it unless it's to do with [romsite name redacted] share ratio

Cdbrown, in the next couple of days I am going to be offering all of the EmuMovies releases on DVD on my web site.  I used to send people to eggmans site before it went down, but now that they are gone there is no way for folks to get them w/o a broadband connection.  I have been getting repeated requests for this so I am finally setting it up.  Anyway I wanted to know if you would mind if I included your mame set with this.  I am not trying to get rich on this or anything but thought that I would ask.  Anyway let me know, thanks.

Been pulling down the [romsite name redacted] torrents over the holiday. Just shut down my #-M seed this morning,  as it had seemed to be inactive for a while. I'll update to the latest and start seeding again.

Thanks again for putting these together.

I have proposed on the forum that I update the [romsite name redacted] torrent for circo so then he doesn't have to wait to leech first off ---No torrents please - thanks!--- before creating the new torrent.  However I've had no comments at all on the proposal.  Perhaps if you guys added your comments to that thread then maybe a mod will listen.  Just use your username and password from the site to get on the forum.

I've been using ---No torrents please - thanks!--- this whole time, but would like to switch to [romsite name redacted]. Do I have to download the entire pack if I switch over? 

Also- I read all about getting 'poop'-listed for leeching. IF I were to switch over, I'd have to download a HUGE file my first round. How do I do that and NOT get on the list as a leecher?  Or, will they allow me to download that HUGE file, then turn around and seed it back up for a while so that my ratio is back in order?

Can someone walk me through this process please?  I'd appreciate it!

No you don't have to start over. Create a folder called "MAME098 Game AVI Previews" and move all your current folders inside of it keeping each set in is currently named folder. Then point the torrent to the "MAME098 Game AVI Previews" folder. When the torrent starts it should say hash checking and then start at about 75%, give or take depending on how many sets you already have.

SWEET!  Thanks!

Now- what about the seeding/leeching part?  How do I avoid getting listed as a leecher?  Can I download the next pack, and then turn around and upload it back up to gete my ratios in check, or- upload/seed first, then download?

Also- on the same topic- if noone uses me to download from while i'm seeding, does it still count towards my ratio, or only when someone is currently downloading off of me?

ok silly question here- but- I'm confused.

When I goto the [romsite name redacted] site- which file do I choose to do this? There seems to be 4 or 5 different torrent files to download.  If I already have the other packs from the other site, which file do I choose to update with any new packs that come out?
Thanks

There is just one torrent file currently titled
MAME098 Game AVI Previews #-M
Once you have finished updating your pack, just leave it running for anyone else to download from.  Unfortunately that pack doesn't have the latest N,O,Q yet.
Remember to have all those individual folders inside a main folder
MAME098 #0-9
MAME098 A
etc
etc
otherwise you'll end up downloading it all again

ahhh- ok.  So, I downloaded that, it went through some sort of 'check' on the file. It finished, and not I'm seeding it.  Is that all I need to do, and then just wait for more updates?  If/when it updates, will it automatically download the new files?  Man that's cool...

Can someone answer my question on the ratios?  Do I only get credit for when someone is actually downloading from me?  Or, do I get credit for seeding, even tho no one's using it?
Thanks

I thought something was wrong with my setup so I tried to download some linux thing and that worked fine.

credit is given for uploading not just idling as a seeder.  Is it showing that you have got 100% of the torrent?  You should also see something like 10 seeders seen recently.  When the torrent is updated a new .torrent file is created.  You will need to close the current torrent, download and open the new one.  It will then begin to get the new information, and as new people join the torrent you may then be able to share the upload to them until everyone get's updated.

Yeah, I am using Azureus.  It's sitting in the bottom pane window, marked as 1st Priority, Seeding, 1.73GB, Seeds 0(12), etc etc.  Tracker Status is OK. No one is downloading right now- but it's acting as if I did it right, already have downloaded all the files, and is just waiting for someone to download.  Is this right?

What site are you talking about - [romsite name redacted] or ---No torrents please - thanks!---?  If it's [romsite name redacted], i guess you are registered and it will just download off the seeders, it's best to stay connected after the download is finished as they monitor ratios and ban heavy leechers.  If it's ---No torrents please - thanks!--- it may be there's no seeders around for the packs you are trying to get - post the packs and people will then reopen the torrents.

Even with the limited trafic you are looking at a minimum of 75 to 100 gigs of bandwidth a month to host this on a website for download.  In reality it would probably be much much more.  And since there is no real way to get revenue off of these it would be very expensive to pay for all of that bandwidth.


Why is torrent being used anyway?

Ok - am currently talking with the guys over at [romsite name redacted] on what they require me to do with this vid pack.  They are asking that each video get's zipped much like each rom which will reduce the overall size of the release.  This would mean that everyone would also need to do the same with what they have downloaded so far.  It seems to be a rule on their site that everyhting should be run through torrentzip but I guess as none of the mods had any interest in these packs, they never tried to download the torrent and therefore never saw the problem.

That seems kind of silly if you ask me.  The final size of this pack probably won't even be as large as a standard DVD, and there are plenty of torrents out there of that size.  I don't see a need to zip them all considering the size and the fact that we (you) are already half through the pack.

I'd ask them if you could keep it as is, since you are bound to create problems if you have to have everyone zip those files they already have.

Ok everyone - here is a brief tutorial on what you need to do to you avi files to prevent having to redownloading them.  You will need to have winrar and torrentzip.  The version of torrent zip I got was the win version.  I unzipped the exe file into c:\documents and settings\[username]\Send To\ folder

You need to go into each of the avi folders, select all the avi files (ctrlr-A selects all files, then hold the ctrlr button and click on the txt file to unselect it)
Right click on the selected files and choose Add to Archive... (under winrar)
Compression method can stay as Normal
Select .ZIP format in the General Tab
I also selected delete files after archiving as I already had a copy of them elsewhere
Select Put each file to seperate archive in the Files Tab
Click OK
This will then produce individual zip files for each avi.  Do this for each folder but remember not to zip the txt file as it's not required.
Once this is all done, right click on the main folder which has MAME098 #-0 and MAME098 A as subfolders
Select Send To - trrntzip.exe (or if you called it different)
This will then do a thorough check and rezip of all the files
and now your set will be exactly the same as mine. 

Any problems just post here - remember you won't have to redownload anything if you have kept the original structure and followed the instructions above

So, in order to use them we are then going to have to unzip each and every file, is this correct or am I missing something here? I don't believe most FE's play avi's that are zipped.

This sure seems like a TON more work than ---No torrents please - thanks!---.  Why are we not using ---No torrents please - thanks!--- as much?  It's much easier- just download the torrent, open it, download movies.
Anyone?

I have never zipped my sets, and hope I never have to, the real advantage at [romsite name redacted] is bandwith and longevity.

hey fellas just wanted to drop a line that I have completed nonworking vids as well. So we will add this, so that when you select a nonworking game, it plays a small clip stating the game doesnt work. This will be the last pack we add after all letters are added and completed.

The torrentzip operation is a one time thing only. cdbrown basically changed the internal structure of the torrent to make it smaller.
For next releases of the torrent, you will simply have to download the "new" torrent, it will check what you already have and download what's missing.
That's what [romsite name redacted] does for ROM torrents for example, so you don;t redownload everything when a new version of mame comes out.

I personnaly like it even though it's a pain to go through it the first time. People that have downlaoded nothing yet don;t have to worry about it either.

Yeah but how are supposed to use the AVI's when they are zipped up. Roms work when they are zipped, video's do not. We will need to manually unzip each and every file. What am I missing here?

I download everything on a different machine from my cab, and I usually zip everything for archiving anyway, so this format doesn't bother me, but I can see your point.

I also download on a seperate machine and zip for archival. The zipping is the easy part. YOU will still need to unzip every AVI file to use it.

BTW, winrar is one.


Although, like I believe HowardC said it would be a easier if they were in one directory.

how do the files compress? I know MP3 files basically don;t compress at all, I would expect AVI files to be pretty efficient too.

I wanted to move to [romsite name redacted] because the tracker there is far more reliable.  Everyone was having continual problems with the ---No torrents please - thanks!--- tracker.  I am yet to have a timeout or unable to connect to tracker with [romsite name redacted], but I would about 80% of the time with ---No torrents please - thanks!---.

I tried to resist the zipping but the mods are fairly strict and continually asked me how I would set the torrent up before giving upload access.  I guess you have been around there for a while circo so they just let you do what you need to do.

To get all these to work you need to extract each of the files to a single directory anyway, so instead of highlighting the files and dragging and dropping to a directory, highlight right click drag and drop - extract here.  It's a little bit more time, but it's more than worth it for a good tracker.

1504 files compressed from 1.90GB to 1.80GB

It's embarrassing to admit but I wasn't aware that WinRar would unzip all the files withing a group of selected folders. Not a problem any more.

using torrentzip had no affect on size, however the initial zipping did reduce it by 120MB using winrar, but that's because avi's can't really be compressed.

Torrentzip doesn't compress, it "massages" the information in the zip file (such as the time stamps of the files) that could change from one machine to the next, so thatthe zip files appear to be identical, regardless of who or what or when they were compressed.

The actual zipping is done beforehand (by winrar in cdbrown's case for example)

I have begun seeding M again but it's timing out with the tracker at the moment. 

The new releases will primarily be released through [romsite name redacted] and once it has been seeded to a few people I'll put it up on pirate bay.

[romsite name redacted] were moving their server over today, so just wait till the move is complete and signup then

Ok have finally got the torrent updated with P vids.  The old torrent has been deleted (you may notice that the torrent client is not authorized for that tracker)

Go download the new torrent
[romsite link redacted]
You'll probably have to sign in (use the same login and password as before)

Added the new R pack to the [romsite name redacted] torrent.

Everyone will need to go there and re-download the file.  You'll find the current torrent won't find the tracker anymore.

[romsite name redacted] is banning BitComet.

Quote
Title: BitComet Ban

As from Monday 19th December BitComet will be banned from this tracker, the reason for this is BitComet's inability to follow the standard on Private torrents.

If you use BitComet you have until Sunday to get yourself a new client. BitComet will remain banned until this issue is fixed.

Can anyone recommend another good BitTorrent client that won't install a bunch of spyware?

I use Azureus.  It works pretty well and there are some rss importer plug-in's for it.

[rant]
I hate [romsite name redacted] 1:1ratio.  There is no way you can keep a 1 to 1 ratio in check if you are dl anything.  If i try to limit my dl speed my ul speed suffers too.  I totally understand the need for their for a ratio system just like in irc but 1 to 1 is harsh if you don't want to keep you computer running 24/7.

My ratio is at .20 because as soon as I got all of the videos there was no one else to upload too.  I am trying to bring my ratio up by dl the .102 update since it should stay popular for awhile.

I have no problem seeding day/night elsewhere- just seems as tho [romsite name redacted] has been nothing but headaches- download this, rezip this, then zip this, oh wait, you need to download that to be able to do this, now if it starts downloading all 184billion gigs, you did it wrong- wait, now go redownload this file- crap, it's not accepting this program anymore, your ratio is this.  what a PITA!

We made it halfway through with no problems at the [romsite name redacted]. Yes, it's slower, but MUCH MUCH easier.  I stopped downloading vids when you all switched it over to [romsite name redacted]- too much headache for me. Can we please switch it back over to ---No torrents please - thanks!---, or, at least upload it to there so the rest of us who don't want to deal with [romsite name redacted] can get to them?  Again, I seed day/night, 24-7, so I can certainly help people out- I just want to be able to get to the last sets of videos without all this drama and headache...

I feel your pain but i think we need to wait till all parts are done before we put a torrent up on [romsite name redacted] again.  So we have everyone on the same page w/ only one torrent file to be seeded.  Instead of "oh wait I need A-D but no one is seeding can some seed this again!"

when you download the new torrent it resumes, the only issue was using torrentzip to gety everyone on the same page, once that was done you just stop the old torrent get the new one and it gets the missing files, leaving all the old ones in tact.  It is actually very easy and stops the problem of trying to seed 27 torrents.

Ok everyone - here is a brief tutorial on what you need to do to you avi files to prevent having to redownloading them.  You will need to have winrar and torrentzip.  The version of torrent zip I got was the win version.  I unzipped the exe file into c:\documents and settings\[username]\Send To\ folder

You need to go into each of the avi folders, select all the avi files (ctrlr-A selects all files, then hold the ctrlr button and click on the txt file to unselect it)
Right click on the selected files and choose Add to Archive... (under winrar)
Compression method can stay as Normal
Select .ZIP format in the General Tab
I also selected delete files after archiving as I already had a copy of them elsewhere
Select Put each file to seperate archive in the Files Tab
Click OK
This will then produce individual zip files for each avi.  Do this for each folder but remember not to zip the txt file as it's not required.
Once this is all done, right click on the main folder which has MAME098 #-0 and MAME098 A as subfolders
Select Send To - trrntzip.exe (or if you called it different)
This will then do a thorough check and rezip of all the files
and now your set will be exactly the same as mine. 

Any problems just post here - remember you won't have to redownload anything if you have kept the original structure and followed the instructions above



Just re-read that and do it or do what I did and DL the whole thing again.  Youll get around 200Kb/s per second if you have broadband. Currently 16 seeders and  1 leacher  Then just let it upload after its done dl'ing to get your ratio closer to normal. 

Now when the torrent gets updated again on [romsite name redacted] all you do is stop seeding the old torrent.  DL the new torrent, make sure your bittorrent client checks the new one against the old and your DL will start at where ever the old one left off at.

Hope this helps.  on the .102 update I was DL'ing at 500Kb/s so its worth some of the hassle.

I am having major problems with ---No torrents please - thanks!--- at the moment.  I tried all different torrents from that site and continually got unable to connect to tracker errors.   Other trackers like [romsite name redacted] I don't have a problem.  If someone wants to put them up on [romsite name redacted] then I'm fine with that as long as you try to use the same descriptions as the other releases.

But [romsite name redacted] has 15 seeders waiting to dish out the bandwidth to anyone who wants it.

ok look. I'm on ---No torrents please - thanks!---. Downloaded the new torrent, including r-x or whatever. I open Azreus, open that torrent file, save the files to the directory I already have- Mame098 Game Previews - or whatever it's called. Inside that folder I have all the individual folder packs- MAME098 A, MAME098 B, etc.  So, the torrent goes through a check, then starts downloading.

Here's the problem- it's downloading the entire thing! 2.1GIG! I already have all the packs up to Q- why is it doing this?  How do I get it to just download the updated folders???

This sucks. About 102MB into the ENTIRE download, the thing comes to a screeching halt with an error.

File 'C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxx\Desktop\MAME098 Game AVI Previews\MAME098 G\g.txt' is in use by '68ADC2A0AAD2450F4D63746F50D8FCB30798D8DF[4790] [read],17B2DCAD34C67F23E2735C033BAECF298421E847[6140] [write]', flush fails when processing file 'youjyudn.zip'

Can someone explain what this means?  AND- how do I fix it?  ALSO- why is this downloading the ENTIRE thing, and not just the updated files???

I thought this was only on [romsite name redacted], if you got it off ---No torrents please - thanks!--- it probably is not the same structure as the [romsite name redacted] torrent.  If you are trying to resume off of your old ---No torrents please - thanks!--- downloads and you are now using the [romsite name redacted] trackers, the directories probably will not match and since the files are not torrent zip it will not recognize.  If a single file is giving you an error, stop the download, delete that file, the re-download the torrent and let it start that file over.  Shouldn't be that big of a deal.

I'm not quite following where you are downloading the packs from?  Only [romsite name redacted] has those new packs.  ---No torrents please - thanks!--- stops at O.

The folder structure for [romsite name redacted] should be - within a main folder (can be called anything)
MAME098 #0-9
MAME098 A
MAME098 B
etc
One folder for each letter.  You need to go into each of the avi folders, select all the avi files (ctrl-A selects all files, then hold the ctrlr button and click on the txt file to unselect it)
Right click on the selected files and choose Add to Archive... (under winrar)
Compression method can stay as Normal
Select .ZIP format in the General Tab
I also selected delete files after archiving as I already had a copy of them elsewhere
Select Put each file to seperate archive in the Files Tab
Click OK
This will then produce individual zip files for each avi.  Do this for each folder but remember not to zip the txt file as it's not required.

Then run the main folder through torrentzip so it get's a proper hash check.  The set is then ready.

You shouldn't have any problem getting the download to finish now as there are around 50-70 seeders.

CD-
Once again, Thanks for doing all of this- it's awesome!

I am on [romsite name redacted]. I downloaded the torrent file, opened it in Azreus, told it where to save the downloaded files- and it starts. It downloads the entire 2gig worth of files- so I don't know what I did wrong. It's still downloading.

About every 10 minutes, it stops downloading, with an error message similar to the one I posted above. I stop the download, restart it, and it goes for another 10 minutes. It's very frustrating. I'd rather have stayed in ---No torrents please - thanks!--- at a 2kbs speed than deal with babysitting the download every 10 minutes...  Oh well- it's close to being done I think, so I'll let you know how it goes...
Thanks

Man- I download for 2 min, then it hits me with this error and stops the download.  I gotta tell you guys- [romsite name redacted] SUCKS.  Sure, it's fast- but- I'd rather download from [romsite name redacted] at a 2kbps speed with no interruptions than this 100kbps and have to restart it every 2 minutes. Here's the error-

File 'C:\Documents and Settings\Damon\Desktop\MAME098 Game AVI Previews\MAME098 H\h.txt' is in use by '68ADC2A0AAD2450F4D63746F50D8FCB30798D8DF[4925] [read],17B2DCAD34C67F23E2735C033BAECF298421E847[33365] [write]', flush fails when processing file 'h.txt'

Can someone tell me what the problem is here? Is it because it's rewriting overtop of the movies I already downloaded from [romsite name redacted]???

Did if ever occur that it couple be the user or more likely the computer setup? THere are MANY happy users at [romsite name redacted]. I've spent lots of time in the forums and hardly ever see anyone having issues.

Thanks for all those who helped, and, for those who are creating these to begin with!  IT IS VERY APPRECIATED!!!!

Well, what sucks is- if no one downloads from you when you're seeding, it doesn't effect your ratio. It's not my fault that no one dls when I'm seeding. So I have to keep this program open for the next 5 years and hopes someone dls from me to get my ratio back up. I understand why they do it that way, but, I wish they would take into account how long, in time, you've been seeding as well- I could seed for the next week and never have my ratio change. Oh well, I guess there's never a perfect app... well, there is photoshop, but, other than that... ;)

Almost done!  Only a few more packs left!  Man, it's soo cool that these guys have taken the time to make all these videos...

Just jump in on the next update as early as possible.  I too thought I wouldn't get my ratio back up after five days now i am 2.0 for that torrent.  I also DL'ed the .102 updates since I knew there where going to be alot more leachers for that.  The only problem w/ using that to help my ratio is that I was DLing at 300kB/s and only uploading at 60kB/s.  All you need to do is give it some time.


Also remember for the next update.  Here is what you need to do to not have to DL everthing again.

When the update is anounced
1. Start Azureus.
2. Right click the Movie file you are seeding.
3. Click stop.
4. Go to PD and DL new torrent.
5. Open up Azureus and start new torrent.
6.  The torrent should start checking against the existing movies.  When it gets done checking it will then DL any new files that have been added.

I hope this helps calm any frustrations down the road.

The [romsite name redacted] ratios seem pretty reasonable to me.

[romsite link redacted]

If you keep a ratio above .25 or avoid downloading more than 5 Gb, you'll stay off the "S" list.

Leecher - Over 5Gb downloaded and a ratio below 0.25 (Used as a reminder not to just keep taking) [Can download 1 torrent simultaneously]
Member - Under 5Gb Uploaded and/or a ratio below 0.75 (Default starting level) [Can download 2 torrents simultaneously]
Bronze Member - Uploaded at least 5Gb & has a ratio of 0.75 or above [Can download 2 torrents simultaneously]
Silver Member - Uploaded at least 10Gb & has a ratio of 1.0 or above [Can download 3 torrents simultaneously]
Gold Member - Uploaded at least 25Gb & has a ratio of 1.5 or above [Can download 5 torrents simultaneously]
Platinum Member - Uploaded at least 50Gb & has a ratio of 2.0 or above [Can download 10 torrents simultaneously]

I'm silver after downloading and seeding these movies.

Good news is I've nearly finished off S pack and was that a nightmare. 357 vids done so far, 3 outstanding.  All are CHD's (sfrush, simpbowl, susume) and are proving troublesome in getting a video for using 098.  If I can't get it by tomorrow then the pack will go out without them as a lovely christmas present to all.  And after that it's T which is big, U-W which are small.

Sometime today I'm hoping to upload the T-W vid packs which will complete 098 playable, non-mature, non-mahjong, non-quiz games.  Question I put forward is do you want me to do produce the mature vid set, mahjong/quiz vid set, or move up to mame0100/0102.  If it's the newer version it may be easier for me to go from 098 to 0100 and produce the new and newly working games and then go from 0100 to 0102.  But this will depend on the total number of games for each new release.

I was planning on putting these new releases into a new folder - ie MAME098 MATURE, MAME098 MAHJONG, MAME0100, MAME0102 and not break them down into letters or put the new vids into the existing letter folders (if that makes sense).

Any comments?
Cheers

Thanks some much for your work.

my priority for updates would be.
mame0100/0102
mahjong/quiz vid set
mature vid set

and however you handle the .098 to .100 to .102 is up to you.


As far as the folder structure for updates to working games I would suggest adding them to the appropriate letter.  Then if you do the mahjong, mature put them in a separate folder so that they can be discarded easier by those who wish not to have them. (I am assuming this is most people because they were not originally included.)

Again Thanks for the hard work.

Well- I dont know what happened here. I WAS downloading at about 190k/s, but now it's dropped down to 0-4Bps for the past 2 hours! It says only 3(19) peers and 1(1) seeds. If anyone out there has the ability to seed, please do so. I'll gladly seed to help everyone else out as soon as I can get it downloaded myself.
Thanks

Re-lax.  I haven't even started these, have had some of the same issues as you, and got everything sorted out.  The only reason you'll have problems is impatience.  I got the "old" MAME torrent from there and did what was suggested (pick up the latest update pack and be a seeder for that to get ratio up) and out of both of those, I've gotten up to silver, and the majority of my ratio comes from the .36 torrent.  I can pull all of the vids if I so wanted and NEVER drop below bronze membership. 

Patience is the key and shouldn't be a problem, ESPECIALLY since you know you're getting the same stuff everyone else is getting.

Nice work on the vids. I will leave my client open for anyone who needs it. The only problem is I have a crappy upload speed.

Drew-
Not sure what you're talking about here- I wasn't asking about ratios, I was merely asking for someone else to start seeding if possible. Doesn't matter now, I have the vids all downloaded finally...

Hey guys-
jcrouse just pointed out something to me. On [romsite name redacted], if you do a search for my username, it shows I only have a share ratio of 0.14. However, in my Azureus, it shows that I have a ratio of 0.902 as of now. That's a pretty big discrepency between the two. Can someone explain why this is?

[romsite name redacted] even shows the last time I accessed the site, which was today- so I don't think it's an updating issue. If they know the last time I accessed the site, they would know my current share ratio. Can someone explain?  I just don't want to get banned, all while I was thinking I had a decent share ratio going on...

All those "it started downloading from the beginning" efforts is my bet. 

What I found is that if you downloaded something and selected the wrong thing (yes, I know I thought I had the right folder too, but it was something stupid I selected, I bet the same thing happened to you), it would start from scratch.

You REALLY need to find some sort of tutorial on how to set up Azureus properly - they've got links somewhere there on how to do this for most popular torrent progs - before you DO get the boot there.  It seems they're pretty strict and don't much care what your reason is, and the only solution you'll be given is a short reprieve to upload until your ratio gets back in line with their standards.

If it's DL'ing in the background (meaning you can't PHYSICALLY eyeball that potential download that's going on), you may have re-downloaded the entire thing again and dragged your ratio into the crapper.  I'm tellin' ya, get and use the old version torrent to quickly raise your ratio as soon as possible after getting closer to back in line.

Hey-
I just looked in my MAME098 Game Previews directory and saw a folder titles 'roms'.  It has all the roms in zipped format in there (about 12GIG on disk). I must've moved that folder in there on accident. I assume it's not part of the Mame Preview packs- but- can you guys confirm that if I move it out of that directory, I wont screw up these downloads (ie- screw up the seeding) of these packs?
Thanks
BTW- got my ratio up from 0.14 to 0.69 yesterday... WHEW!  That was a close call...

Yeah, that's the plan. Im going to download some other stuff so I can turn around and upload it again to get the ratio up higher. It really helped changing to uTorrent, as my file upload speed went from 4k to 50-60k with uTorrent yesterday. Azureus sucks.  I'm going to seed for a few more weeks and really get my ratio cranked up there so I can download anything I want and not worry about it.

Im also just going to move that directory and see what happens...
Thanks

Anyone use BitLord?  I use it and was wonderring how it compares to others out there.

I'm using BitTornado after seeing that it seemed to be the only one they "approved" of.  It's worked better than the clients I've used in the past, which I'm positive weren't BitLord.  Doesn't help you on that front, but they give you a nice easy setup tute for BitTornado, and no friggen spyware/adware/crapware/bloated install.

huh- that's odd. I was in the forums yesterday there and seemed like they were bitching about Bit Tornado...

I wish they would just pick on app and stick with it- then make it obvious THATS the one they want you to use. I almost got shitlisted because of Azureus, but never would've known it was crappy until I dug DEEP into the forums and found one post about it screwing up your ratios. They knew it, but never make it obvious not to use it. HOWEVER, they have no problem booting you for not knowing what they know...

Like I said, uTorrent, SO FAR, has worked well for me. At least, until the PD Gods decide it sucks... LOL  ;)

Not sure on that, since I didn't know I needed a separate signup for their forums it seems.  From what I CAN see of their forums, in the FAQ, the "don't underestimate the power of BitTornado" is what I was referring to.  Posting that, and following that as well as the links in there will get you to some site that helps with port forwarding and some help with most every major client. 

I just went with what the only one mentioned in the FAQ's was ;D

I too would like a DVD or 2 of them if anyone is able to supply me with them (in the UK).  Or if someone could upload the rest of them onto newsgroups?

I managed to get A-S, X-Z and the numbers off the newsgroups some weeks ago but the rest never showed up, and I can't seem to see the links on ---No torrents please - thanks!--- for the rest of them.  I did used to have an account with [romsite name redacted], and I do agree with sharing, however their account system is ridiculous, the mods act like a***oles, and the whole 1:1 ratio reminds me of a pyramid scam.  Every single person needs to find umpteen people to upload from them, and the chain goes on, until inevitably there are no more people wanting them files.  The end result, either face inevitable ban, or download something you dont want that is popular for new starters (like mame sets etc) where you always have a supply of people wanting to download from you.  But I dont always have enough HD space on my internet pc to leave 40+gb on the HD of the current romset just to upload to people to get a share ratio up.  They get ported over to the arcade cabinet when I am able to.

Also, I would upload umpteen MB on ABC Torrent whilst it was left on for days, but when running emule, newsleecher and ABC Torrent it had a habit of cutting my NTL connection off randomly at times, or with XPs crashes etc.  Then when I'd go back to [romsite name redacted]- they didn't get any upload stats from me!  I tested this with a forced poweroff too after downloading nothing but uploading 500mb+ and still it didn't give me any credit....then the mods tell you to get stuffed, So you can't win half the time!

errr anyways, end of rant :)   if someone would be willing to upload them on the newsgroups or be able to send me some I'd be more than grateful :)

So you can't win half the time!


I was able to win ALL the time, and "win" a lot more - to the point that I can DL just about whatever I want from there and I'd STILL be at a decent level now.  I was also able to figure out HOW to do this by reading the tips and suggestions on their site, and to help someone else (in this very thread, in fact) raise their level up.  It's your configuration, obviously, but your attitude towards it seems to be that it's everyone else's fault and since this is just a little thing you want to pick up, you don't want to bother with actually addressing the issues that are causing your problem.

An XP crash?  It's amazing that's not a neon sign blazing in the dark to you ::)

Just like to say I had exactly the same issue with [romsite name redacted], in that I have a 512Kb connection and the torrents I downloaded (mainly various emu movies torrents) didn't seed once despite me seeding all 5 torrents for 3 days straight. So it proved impossible for me to maintain a decent ratio.
Due to my connection being so exceptional I can't spend days and days downloading and uploading files I don't need because all the time im dl or seeding I effectively can't do anything else (even web browsing hits dial up speeds).

Nevertheless it has to be said that at the end of the day these are their site rules and they are there for a reason, to promote sharing and as a result everything is seeded 24/7 unlike most torrent sites.

The simple answer is if the site rules aren't to your liking then dl elsewhere. I gave up with trying to improve my ratio at [romsite name redacted] in the end but did make a small donation instead since I couldn't successfully upload anything.

I didn't have any trouble when I found [romsite name redacted] a couple weeks ago.  In fact it is the first torrent I've ever had that maxed out my download speed (5 megs).  And I didn't have any trouble uploading either.  It all depend son how many people are out there needing the files you have obviously.  And if you have a slow connectino it might default to other people first which could be why you weren't getting anyone leeching from you.

You onlt have to stay about a .25 ratio to avoid being sh!tlisted.  I let my ROM file get up to about 50% and turned it off.

alls fair with the rules themselves, it was more their attitude and how they uphold them that bothered me at the time.

For the most part, I simply removed cookies, changed IP and created a new account etc which got me back on again, but I tired of the same problem again.  True, I could have ran ABC by itself (or setup a different torrent app), but I cringe when I know I dont have my emule and newsgroups catching up on the tv series I'm trying to finish off.

Also, I don't know what your US speeds are like, but with NTL in the UK it is 215k/sec max downstream, but a max of 15kb/sec upstream.   Also any higher than 10k upstream and it seriously hampers your max downstream on everything in total to bounce around 20-40k/sec - ok so still adequate but frustrating.  I noticed my parents ADSL connection upload speed didn't seem to adversely affect downstream, but anyways, I didn't want to sit for the most part with 0 uploaders for x hrs in the hope that someone will eventually get a few mb off me, and lose out on all the bandwidth wasted for the other programs, as the only programmes I really wanted from the site were the more obscure collections.  But I respect that they obviously do this for a reason, I just wish that their trackers were more reliable for accounting loss of connection etc. and maybe updated every hour, not just when the app is manually closed as it seemed to be, as I leave my pc on 24/7 so after 5 days, if I then get a lovely BSOD for whatever reason its a lot of potential upload wasted.

When I joined them to download stuff of them I limited my download to only be a little more than my upload speed.  Then went off and downloaded stuff from other sites.  It worked well, I have also done this on some other sites which require a certain ratio.  I had to get away from releasing it on ---No torrents please - thanks!--- due to constant timeouts.  [romsite name redacted] provided a consistent connection where leechers were able to connect fairly quickly to the cluster.

One quick unrelated question. Several of these AVI's like HyperDrive, Ridge Racer, Radical Bikers and a few others, seem to be running with a solid fast frame rate. I know a lot of these games particularly some CHD titles don't run well on any PC so have the AVI's been tinkered with to give the appearance of a solid framerate?.

I'm running mame on a fairly up to date PC (Athlon64, 1Gb Ram) but regardless of what settings I apply I can't achieve a reasonable (above 20fps) rate on these games.

I'm running standard command line mame through Windows XP, do these games run better with a different mame variant or is there something wrong with the way I have them set up?.

It's the way the avi is produced - frame by frame.  So even though it seems it has solid 60/60fps the actual time it took to record those clips was very long.  I can't get anywhere near playable speeds on my XP1800+.

OK I finally got in on this. Now i'm downloading the torrent but had one question. I only saw one torrent for this release on [romsite name redacted] labeled Mame 098 previews #-9, A-Z. Does this pack contain updates up to 102 or higher or are there seperate files?

haven't done any updates so far.  In the move to the uk the process got stopped and my spreadsheet that I tracked everything with is not here  >:( but I'm trying to get some one to email it and I'll see if I can continue.  I think I might have to go straight to 104 as I noticed a lot of older roms were slightly changed when I updated my set and don't feel like going through the hassle like I had with the 098 set.

Be patient while I sort out the mess.

Update - thankfully the file was still on my old pc at work and they emailed it across.  Now to get my head around what needs to be done to produce a proper list of playable, non-mature, non-mahjong/quiz games with the lates mame 104

Thanks to Budda, Silver and SirP for the help in getting the necessary files together to get this project up and running again.  Thanks also to NIVO for doing the update to the non-working games.

I have now generated a new list of games for 104, imported the 098 vid list, created mature, unplayable and mahjong lists - set up a filter and I have the list of missing games that "supposedly will play".  When I'm ready for the release I will put all the torrentzipped vids into one big folder instead of the individual Letter structure it is now.  Then hopefully as new versions of mame come out it's just a matter of adding to that folder.  When I get around to doing the mature and mahjong games they will go inside a folder within the main so people can choose not do download that part.  I think that will keep everything nice and tidy.

Cheers

if your on the [romsite name redacted] site, yes u need an account there. As for the fiels themselves, they are not password protected. So signing up for account would get you your user/pass.

Everyone will be pleased to know that intro video production has commenced following a rocky start.  After getting all the necessary files I went about painstakeingly updating my spreadsheet with all the latest information.  Lost a day of production tiime yesterday due to virtual dub throwing up a disclaimer on the first use, so the lappie sat there for 11 hours idling waiting for someone to press Accept.

But it's running now and seems to have created about 50 vids so far which I'll then go through and edit.

If you know of any vids that may be missing, or are crappy, or dont show enough, please list them here so I can put them in the list of todo's.

The first round of videos have been produced.  I am currently going through each one, checking quality, shortening to show action etc.  So far about half of them didn't work properly so I will need to go back and investigate why they didn't run.  My feeling is the catver.ini may not be as accurate as I'd hoped for weeding out the unplayable games.  Will hopefully do a rerun of them this weekend.  May be asking on a few people to test some games out.

I have checked MAWS against the games that didn't produce a video at all, produced a useless clip, didn't get past initial screen, produced a black clip for 4 min, had scrambled graphis etc etc.

These games are apparently playable according to the catver.ini that's being maintained by mameitalia.  I am wondering if people could try and run the games and post back whether you could get them to work or not.  I'm not concerned whether it runs at only 2/60fps, bad sound etc, just whether you can get it to run and into a game.  I'm using Buddamame104 as that can produce the vids.  Hopefully people can try with 104 and perhaps the newer u releases.

These are supposed to be playable according to MAWS and catver but didn't work initialy.

************testing on mame104u4***********************

acedrvrw----------------runs(runs like crap) youll have to manually record, record just you like normally would, but actually have to play it for a few minutes while it records on the fly.

arescue---------plays, cant really control it properly without flight stick and throttle control(im just trying from a kybd)

backfire-------plays fine

darkhors-----it does run, you have to "F3" reset the game after it first loads, cant play it due to coin insert timeout. Should be able to record demo after you reset though.

darkmist------plays fine(no sound)

dbzvrvs-------plays fine(uggh its gay though LOL)

diehard-------no way(cartridge improperly installed) will not work for vid record.

gaxeduel-----plays(slow) might need to record manually

gradius4-----works, wait 2 minutes, press f2 for service, save twice, goto game mode, it should play. dont think record will allow you to stay in long enough to do all this manually though :((

introdon-----works, manual record im guessing, not sure about controls, it studders quite a bit.

joemacr-----worked fine

mdhorse-----i have no listing of this

mgcldtex-----works, has a 10 sec boot timer(coud be why vid shut down prematurely)

mosaicf2-----takes 2 minutes from blank screen, then loads

myangel3----works fine

phrcraze-----needs test switch to be triggered, then loads fine

primglex-----plays demo loop fine

psyforce-----locked up pc, had to hard reset, dont go near it

quiz365-----it pauses to backup/clear ram, otherwise it loads fine

quizmoon-----works,loads fine

quizpani-----loads fine, appears to play ok

qzkklgy2-----boots to dat rom error, couldnt get into the game

rcasino-----no go, needs to have dipswitch(es) set, dont have that info

rsgun-----demo loop is excessively long, youll have to go in for a manul gameplay/record

sassisu-----long demo, manual record.

all i can do for now matey! talk at ya soon

Just a quick note on [romsite name redacted].  I cannot express enough how wonderful that site is to obtain emulation related files.  You need to make sure you read and follow all the rules because the guys running the site have a very low tolerance for people who do not share.  They have a strict policy on keeping a 1:1 ratio so if you download 20 gigs be prepared to seed until those 20 gigs are uploaded otherwise you could find yourself sh**listed, and unless you redeem yourself your account will be banned.  It takes time, but as they say the files are not going anywhere so be patient.  I initially downloded about 20 gigs and it took me two weeks of seeding to upload the same amount.  On another note, great work on the intro videos!  When I get to the point of downloadng them you can rest assure I will continue seeding them.

In the next week or so I will most likely change the file structure of the torrent so it's no longer broken up by letters, but more likely be all in one torrent.  And once I have done the mature vids they will be in a separate folder so you can choose not to download that section.  I will be putting the mahjong games into the main folder as there isn't very many of them that aren't mature.

Currently just working through a number of vids that showed no action in the intro sequence, involves running them manually, getting into a game and playing a small sequence.  Doing this can cause the moviemaking part to not work properly in that after it exits from the game it doesn't call virtualdub to begin the encode.  So sometimes I have to run a game a number of times to get it to encode.  Will have those done by tomorrow and then it's working on some of the others that require initialisation or for some reason didn't even work.

A lot of games need to be run once to create a nvram file before they will boot properly. This may be why some of the 'playable' games did not run when doing automatic.

I think this problem is attempted to be got round in the batch file - there should be a call to mame with the -ftr option (Frames to run). You may need to make the value higher than it currently is - I'm guessing a lot of more modern games may have longer bios sequences.


I'm interested in this manual process not always calling virtualdub. I've not done this for a while, but If I recall it was set up so that you could hit esc at anytime and it would make a vid from the start to that point....?

I think it has something to do with the loop checks  - I'll disable this in the batch files and see if it helps.  Nothing worse that playing a part of the game to get some action, leaving it to finish off the loop and then it records the last 20 seconds, or on a very slow game getting through all the intro screens can take a while, only to hit escape and not record a thing.  Oh well we'll get there in the end.

the game rcasino - press Tab, go into dip switch settings and enable one of the top options and the game will start.   Bit strange that the mamedevs put this game out with all the potential minigames disabled.

That site makes me afraid to download!  :)

If I grab a file now, will it automatically seed the torrent when I'm done? or do I have to "offer" an upload?
I'm a newbie to torrents, and even reading through the FAQ's it's not really clear how this happens.

It will seed WHILE you are downloading and continue to seed after you download completes, until you stop the process.

Hi all,

Just wondering if any of you have the makemovie process set up if you could try and capture a vid of the following
arescue, dbzvrvs, fhboxers, gaxeduel, psyforce, twcup98, diehard, introdon, nss_fzer, nss_smw, nss_sten, primglex, smleague, mdhorse, mgcldtex, myangel3, sokyugrt, suikoenb, znpwfv, pacapp2, pacappsp, rsgun, sassisu
I can get the games to run and i know it's capturing a png for every frame, however when it tries to put all the png's together along with the wav it generates a avi file of 0 seconds duration.

These games I can't actually seem to play the game or get passed the initialise.  some of them don't have the buttons mapped at all.  If someone could just try to play these games and confirm either way that would be helpful.
armchmp2, cardline, fvipers2, ghlpanic, gt5, ltcasin2, lucky8, mt_aftrb, mt_asyn, mt_ggolf, mt_gsocr, mt_mwalk, mt_shnbi, nss_skin, qzkklgy2, raiden2, ridgera2, rushhero, speedrcr, suprgolf, trvchlng, trvquest, vp906iii

I'll update this post as I finalise the last lot.  Once the checks have been completed the set will be complete.

Just open a gmail account and you're ready to go.  [romsite name redacted] is a great site. I'm still seeding, but hopefully will finish one of these days.

Cheers,
Congui.

Yeah, these videos are AWESOME. Really make the front-end come alive. I can't express how grateful I am for all the work that went into them. Kudos!   :applaud:

I will be seeding them at [romsite name redacted] as well. So between the handful of us with these videos, you should get a pretty good DL rate.

It's a bit too big to email around and will shortly be getting bigger with the update to 0104.  However found this on the main [romsite name redacted] site so you'll have to hold off for a couple of days before signing up.

Due to a known software vulnerability in the base tracker software that we use, an attempt was made by an individual to disrupt the Full ROMs tracker. This has now been halted, fixed and the database will be rolled back 24hrs. We had purposely taken down the server (which also hosts the CHD tracker and the Forums) whilst we assessed the situation. During this unscheduled downtime we will also be making several changes that we couldn't do on a live tracker. Things will start returning very soon, at the moment, the Update tracker is unaffected.

Just wanted to let everyone know that if you just can't get these vids on torrents for some reason I am now offering them up on DVD with the rest of my EmuMovies sets.  I had done this before, then my website crashed, I have finally got around to offering them again.  It is a five DVD set and includes all of the EmuMovies releases as well as Cdbrowns mame vids.

This may have already been dealt with before, and I suspect there's a good reason for not doing it...but the existence of these EmuMovies has me thinking: why couldn't a front-end (like MameWah for example) have a small window in place of the screenshot area, that automatically plays the ROM file, and skips ahead a certain number of frames, so, essentially, we'd have authentic game previews, and these movies would not need to be manually generated?

Wouldn't that save a TON of work? The previews could even read off of a global .ini file that contains beginning and ending frame references, per ROM. Edited by the community or whatever.

I'm pretty sure that (he whose name I dare not speak) had this going on in the front-end for Ultra**** machines?

Am I on crack? Or is this just not possible?

To late now anyway, the mame set is complete minus a few new additions, and I have completed many of the console systems already.  Although I still have quite a few to go but since they are not mame based it would probably be impossible to have a frontend do it.  Plus on most of the console releases I have to manually play the game and then do a system reset to get the intro sequences.  It's a lot of hard work to be sure, but in some sick, twisted way, I kind of enjoy doing it. 

Like I have said before, I built my cab so I could spend YEARS setting it up.... what a hobby  :cry:

Sort of like embedding a MAME instance as an object in the FE.  Budda, I have seen web pages that run actual MAME roms surrounded by ads etc...  why couldn't this work?  Does MAME dislike multitasking?

Technicalities aside, MrC, that would give you views of the machine's attract mode, not actual game play.  It would probabably be good for some games and lame for others.

It may have been running something in the web page but IMO it wasn't MAME.

I suppose a front end author (or someone writing a PHP web page) could rewrite the MAME display code to run on the front end's display, then use all the rest of the MAME code as-is. But why do that?

Of course I could be wrong and you can run an instance of an application and output it's window to another application's window. Again, why do that? Why do the full work of running the emulator which may or may not run full speed when you can just display a movie? One great thing about these movies is that they will run full speed, even on games that run at 5 FPS in MAME.

Hmmmm..... yeah. I wonder how many didn't have some sort of attract mode though?

That's also why I mentioned the idea of an exterior frame listing, so the community at large could find the relevant "action" frames and configure the listing to just play those frames in the window. Jumping past all the promo crud, to just show gameplay.

Buddabing,

I think you're right...this just might be the better way. As long as crazy people like Circo exist!   :D

Well, just to clarify my initial thought on it...it would certainly save HD space, as the movies are currently filling 5 DVD's. It would also, in theory, have a preview for every ROM, since it would be generating them on the fly. This means in the future, as roms are added, and others are dropped, the preview movies are always up-to-date.

I can't imagine people creating preview movies forever. Although, I could be wrong.   :cheers:
But the speed comment, and the attract mode issue are certainly interesting hurdles. Although, why would you want to see a preview for a game you can't play anyhow?  :P

To clarify the mame preview set is just under 3GB.  The majority of my 5 DVD set are consoles and handhelds.

Good news everyone - I have been able to convince the powers that be over at [romsite name redacted] that torrent zipping all the vids is unnecessary.  So for those that are going to get the vids all you'll need to do is point the torrent at whatever folder you have extracted all the videos to and it'll update from there.  No separate folders for each letter.  No need to have the videos used in the front end in one folder and another folder full of the zipped stuff for seeding.

Just one folder full of avi's - leeching, seeding, front ending  :applaud:

I think I've almost given up on the idea of separating out the mature vids from the rest of the pack.  I may just leave them out of this release all together and put them in for the 105 update.  When you start up the new torrent (once it's available), it'll verify the data you have an just update the new stuff - it shouldn't download the whole lot again.  If it does then stop the torrent, check what you've done and post here.

Moving house on the weekend and may not get broadband for a while so hopefully I'll get this going tonight.

I never understood why they made you zip those all up, I always used a folder with a bunch of avi's for my sets.  Well, good to hear and I look forward to the update, thanks!
