Would it be possible to create torrents for every hundred releases? A torrent for mixes 2501 to 2600 would be great, and follow this pattern.

Ignore what those people are saying. I try to be forward thinking. We may not do something for a long while, but one day it won't make sense not to offer something along the lines of what's you're talking about.

We originally offered an update for every 100 mixes, but my project put that on hold until now. We plan to do updated bundles for every 100 mixes.

So in updating my old OCR collection with the newly refinished updates, I've noticed a lot of artist name changes which is really messing with me. The remix changelog doesn't seem to contain info about artist name updates; is there another place I might find this? So far I've been able to match songs up by game/remix title, but a reference chart would be so helpful if one exists. Thanks!

There's no chart and no plans to make a chart, though if someone wants to use their spare time to make one, that's cool.

If you use the search function at the top-right of the site, searching any old ReMixer names should bring up the correct results as well. That said, there are probably some gaps, so if you need help on anyone, ask.

Also in the ID3 tags of all the ReMixes, the URL field is the OCR Artist Profile URL of the ReMixer (or lead ReMixer in the case of a collaboration). Every artist page has their list of Aliases, i.e. other handles the artist has been known by.

e.g. halc (formerly halcyon): http://ocremix.org/artist/4793/halc
e.g. Mattias Häggström Gerdt (formerly Another Soundscape): http://ocremix.org/artist/4751/mattias-haggstrom-gerdt
e.g. Jillian Aversa (formerly pixietricks): http://ocremix.org/artist/4659/jillian-aversa

In the interest of some general housekeeping and saving of some sanity, could a link to the torrent update changelog be put on the changelog page? It seems kind of buried on the wiki, particularly when you click on that 'What Links Here' link over on the right side and it comes back saying "No pages link here."

Additionally, the changelog page lists quite a few mixes (or non-mixes as the case may be) without OCR release numbers. I've managed to sleuth out quite a few of them on my own via archive.org's cached copies of the site all the way back to April 2000, but for the sake of completionists like me, it would be nice to see them given that number in OCR's history. Heck, even some kind of a placeholder page for the removed mixes instead of a non-informative 404 page would be nice.

The non-numbered ReMixes listed on the Changelog were removed before OCR had a numeric ID system, so they have no ID #. If you want to us to call removed mixes something like #72.5 or what have you to shoehorn it into a numeric order, I can look into it.

A placeholder page for removed mixes based on mix ID sounds interesting. It would be way (way) down the list of things to do, but sounds like something potentially fun to do once the next version of the site is out, and if djp's interested.

Technically speaking, while indeed they had no numbers at first (numbering began 27 February 2002 with #549), the current numbering almost perfectly matches the drop down box sorting by date from the 12 Jun 2000 version of the site through to 26 March 2002. There are a few places where things seem to have gotten mixed up though, such as #1 and #8 trading places, as well as a pair of Outrun mixes, which got swapped and one was subsequently removed (#5 and #27.5). Anyways, here's what I've found for the unnumbered tracks on the changelog:
  • 27.5 02/09/2000 OutRun 'Splash Wave'
  • 60.5 06/05/2000 Contra 'Contravirt' (aka 'MEGAMIX Medley')
  • 72.5 07/01/2000 Galaxy Force II 'Nominal'
  • 166.5 11/11/2000 Alone in the Dark 2 'Hell's Kitchen (Zombies & Thompsons Mix)'
  • 167.5 11/11/2000 Darklands 'L'homme Arme (Guided by Saints Mix)'
  • 193.5 12/04/2000 Dr. Mario 'Funky Pills'
  • 213.5 12/23/2000 Faxanadu 'Funk Fusion'
  • 231.5 12/31/2000 Blaster Master 'Rocket'
  • 249.5 01/17/2001 Blaster Master 'Through the Eyes of Tragedy'
  • 250.5 01/21/2001 Guardian Legend '8-bit Rox'
  • 258.5 01/28/2001 Duke Nukem 3D 'Gotham (Distorted Mix)'
  • 277.5 02/14/2001 U.N. Squadron 'The Best of the Best'
  • 282.5 02/22/2001 Half-Life 'Time to Choose'
  • 312.5 03/31/2001 Dune 'Sietch to Sietch (Sekence Mix)'
  • 326.5 04/21/2001 Radical Dreamers 'Intonation'
  • 380.5 07/14/2001 Balloon Fight 'Ska Poppin''
  • 382.5 07/16/2001 Mario Kart 64 'Dream Racing'
  • 433.5 09/29/2001 FF7 DJChubbyCvs.GoGoBoco
  • 434.5 09/30/2001 ToeJam & Earl 'Wake Up!'

Now for some of the leftovers.

  • 05/15/2001 NiGHTS into dreams... 'Good NiGHT'
  • 05/16/2001 Final Fantasy VII 'Aeris Chasm'
These two both could be 344.5, along with a missing 5/15 Lufia2 'OfSinistrals' remix that doesn't appear on the changelog.

  • Final Fantasy Mystic Quest 'Doom Castle Metal'
This one is a real oddball. It shows up in the alphabetical list on 31 March 2001, but never shows up in the chronological list, so I can't get a fix on where it fits in with the current numbers.

  • Adventure Island 'Higgins Goes to Miami'
  • Final Fantasy VII 'Adelante (Mako Reactor)'
  • Super Mario World 'Flat Goom-Beat'
I couldn't find these 3 at all, and archive.org doesn't have copies of the site after 26 March 2002 (or at least it's not loading them), so I'm afraid they'll have to remain numberless for now.

Also found a few more non-changelog surprises in there. Like a Final Fantasy I mix titled 'Beginning' at 324.5 and a Radical Dreamers mix titled 'Far Drama' at 326.5 (same as the known 'Intonation' mix listed above). There are probably more like them, but those two came up only because of how near they were to other changelog files that I was searching for.

One question I have I didn't catch anywhere else, but I noticed that there are tracks missing, but are still hosted here. Any idea why? I noticed because one of the Zombies Ate My Neighbor tracks was missing.

I think you missed one, but all 3 are in the torrents.

http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00924/ is in 1-1000.
http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01202/ is in 1001-2000.
http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01493/ is in 1001-2000.

There are 3 torrent sets, so make sure you have all 3. If you get all 3, they download to 3 different folders.
