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.

Thanks again!

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.

Yeah there seems to be a problem with I.  I have just turned it off and will start it up again shortly.  Will keep seeding G for a while.

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....

hopefully there will be some seeders once its on [romsite name redacted]

[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.
