OC ReMix BitTorrent Distribution: Issues; also SEEDERS WANTED

Recommended Posts

First, this is on the wrong section. You might try Help and Newbies.

Second, there's already an existing threads about the torrents. You would have to look around for it, but I guess looking around for something isn't as easy as just making a post, asking for someone else to look for you.

Third, you can just download the 1600 and over remixes, seeing how there aren't that many of them.

Wow, this was helpful. Nice way to welcome someone.

First: I looked in help and newbies and it seemed like it was for help with the forums, not bittorrent trackers.

Second: I spent half an hour looking around for it, I didn't find it, and since you didn't reference it, I take it you don't know where it is either.

Third: Yeah, I could, But that wasn't the question I asked. I just wanted to know if there was a grouping of them somewhere.

Fourth: I don't think a problem with the tracker is a newbie issue. That effects anyone trying to download.

Here is the error message I get from the tracker.

Error regarding "OverClocked ReMix OCR00001 to OCR01000":
Aborting the torrent as it could not connect to the tracker while not connected to any peers

It only does this for the 0001 to 1000 file.

Um. Ok. I'm not sure whose idea it was to move my post, but I don't really see how it fits here and not where it was. This post is about seeders needed for 1100-1600.

My post is about the tracker not working for 1001-1100.

These are two unrelated subjects and now my post is buried 41 pages down in a post that is unrelated.

Hopefully someone can straighten this out. I am embarrassed for you.

Yep, don't mind Damned being a dick. :lol: I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but I'm sure I've been guilty of it as well. A fair amount of regulars take everything for granted, including how intuitive they perceive the answers to be. For a lot of newcomers, that's just not going to be the case. Welcome!

1) Help & Newbies is for all help; forum issues, downloading issues, computer issues, you name it. So it's not necessarily OCR-exclusive problems, which you can see by reading down the topics list there and getting a feel for the questions that pop up. The moderators can always merge something into the main thread of discussion when that's not actually located in Help & Newbies.

2) I've merged your thread into the main torrenting discussion thread. The talk of seeders is merely a sub-discussion due to the recent new torrent release. You hopefully were redirected to it, but the thread itself is Stickyed at the top of the "Community" forum.

3) Torrents are now updated every 100 mixes (we used to do every 250), so the next torrent revision won't be out for a while (we're currently at #1610). Anything from 1601-on isn't bundled anywhere, so you'd have to grab those 1-by-1.

4) You're correct in that problems with the tracker aren't merely newbie issues. While it *could* be something just on your end, the wording your provided seems to indicate otherwise. We'll have to hit up our torrent guy, Aubrey, to have him investigate further. Thanks for the heads up, and otherwise enjoy your stay!

I'm really more of an ass than a dick, but poe-tay-toe, pah-tah-toe...

On topic: any plans on making smaller, more frequent torrents? Like, say... 250 files at a time? Smaller torrents would mean it would be easier to seed (since the smaller transfer wouldn't be a drain on bandwidth), faster to download, and they would be easier to manage; if there are remixes that have been removed or whatever, you only have to alter the one, smaller torrent that is affected.

Just some ideas.

Unfortunately, making the torrents smaller will have the opposite effect you intend.

The smaller torrents, would cause there to be smaller swarms thus less peers and seeds.

You would however see an increase in speed with the latest songs, but a decrease in all the others, in the end it is best to have larger torrents.

Most of the reasons for the larger torrents are for the uploader rather than the downloader. but happy uploaders benefit downloaders.

on a side note: "since the smaller transfer wouldn't be a drain on bandwidth" - you know you can select specific files in a torrent to download right?

First, you clearly don't understand the principle behind torrents.

Second, your idea is addressed right on bt.ocremix.org.

Third, exactly what Soltanis said.

n00b! :<

I kid. :lol:

But n00b.

I used to be a seeder, but since i moved to College i can't seem to use Torrents. Anyone know how to fix it so I can go back to seeding? (I don't have some of the newer songs either but I can't DL the torrent :( . Can anyone help me get back on to the torrent community?

I'm also at college, but I can download the torrents. The problem? I can't upload them. Virginia Tech has a daily upload limit set in place, and exceeding that limit is met with consequences. For the first time, your bandwidth is cut for a day to practically nothing (I'm talking slower than dial-up speeds here). Further times result in more serious disciplinary action.

Suffice to say, I would love to seed the project, but just to download it requires me to cut my upload speed to 5 kb/s or less. And even with that, I had to stop my download at only 46% completion because I was getting too close to the upload limit... :banghead:

I finally got around to getting all the torrents downloaded, so I am seeding as well.

If only I had my university fiber internet instead of Comcast... :evil:

Well, 40KB/s is still greater than 0KB/s

Glad to help out :-D

same here, i tried bittornado and -torrent for the last three days

apparently cannot connect to tracker or peers

Try using a different client. Errors occur sometimes because your client is out of date and Bittornado has not been updated since Dec 2006. Try using uTorrent or Azureus, they've been updated within the last three months.

Seeding the torrent for as long as possible, of course!

Okay, sure, but I'm in dorm with crap internet, and although my server at home is reachable, it seems like a slight waste to download if this is only going to be for a little bit.

Hi guys, I'm new here but have visited ocremix on a regular basis for several years now. I just got the news of the FF7 collaboration project in my email and I will try to seed as often as possible with my 100 mbit connection the following days. :-)

EDIT: Jesus, I didn't think this torrent was that popular. I'm getting ~500 peers and 18-20 mb/s up speeds here.

I have been frequenting OC Remix since 2002. And I'll gladly seed all day an night. Love the collabs :). And FF7: VotL is amazing. Anyways, thats it, lol.

I'm having trouble downloading both the OverClocked ReMix: OCR00001 to OCR 01000 Torrent and the OverClocked ReMix: OCR01001 to OCR 01600 Torrent. I've downloaded Relics of The Chozo, The Dark Side of Phobos, and Voices of The Lifestream perfectly but these two are giving me some trouble.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
