I can seed; I am on a college connection that is ABSURDLY fast. The only problem is, they filter the download of .torrent files (but they don't filter torrent traffic). So if someone wants to send me the actual .torrent files via AIM or something, that'd be awesome.

Just get tor or use a proxy when you need to download .torrent files. Thats what I do.

I'm @ college as well. I'm uploading @ 400kb/s split between the two big song packs and voices of the life stream. I'll seed for a while since I'm at school for at least another month :P.

Hey guys, first post, long time listener.

I have a question concerning torrents, actually. I'm a pretty computer savvy guy, so I don't need to know how it works or any of that, my question is far simpler:

Do the torrent files (that is, the big ones, 1-1000 and 1001-1700) contain ALL of the OCRemix songs on the site (excluding the ones in between the updates, a la 1709 or 1734)? That is, if I download those two torrents, do I have everything OCR has to offer?

And since I'm typing out questions, how do you guys keep the torrents organized? If I've downloaded 1-1000 once and you guys update the other to 1001-1800, I don't need to download 1-1000 again, do I? I read above that you don't make it easy to simply download the newest 100 (something I'm not sure I understand), but surely the complete big groups (the 1000s) are not messed around with at each update?

Sorry if any of this is confusing...it's like, 5 in the morning. :-/

[Edit:]

Woah for two reasons:

1) This is a sizable bump. Didn't realize that it had been a good month and a half since this thread was active.

2) The standard layout for the page has newer posts at the top. What a mindfuck.

1. You will have downloaded all the main OCReMixes since the last update. You won't have downloaded the project albums, which their own individual torrents.

2. The 1-1000 torrent will remain unchanged until they decide to merge at a later date, (probably to 1-2000). They don't mess with it

In order for you to use torrents, you first need a torrenting program. There are a whole lot of them out there, but I personally recommend UTorrent.

After downloading a torrent program, you need to next find yourself a file to torrent. For this, we will be using ocr's own torrents as an example.

Scenario:

Oh hey, I see "Relics of the Chozo". IMA GET IT!!

Click on the link to get the torrent file. If you are using firefox, it will come up like this below.

I usually click open, but you can save the torrent file if you want. Anyway, after you open it, a screen will pop up asking what files from the torrent you would wish to download. Usually torrents are multi file, so you can choose specific things you want from it, but this torrent is a RAR, so only one file is listed.

Click okay once you selected all the files you want to get, sit back, and enjoy!

Seeds and Leechers are important to watch for. The more seeders there are, the faster the torrent will download, but watch out for them leechers. The more leechers there are, the slower the torrent will download for you since you are also said leecher when getting a torrent. Make sure to monitor the ratio. The lower the seeder/leecher ratio is, the longer you are going to have to expect to get a torrent you want.

If you need any other help, feel free to contact me via ocr or aim.

*sorry it took me long to get back to you. had a phone call do deal with*

Random question, should torrents take absof***inglutely forever to download?

It depends on a lot of things. If you have the torrent port on your router blocked off, then yes, 40k is pretty good. If it is open like it should be, then you could be getting several hundred k a second.

But that isn't guaranteed. It of course depends on the quality and number of the peers that you are connecting to. It also might depend on the quality of the networking equipment on your end. Downloads usually speed up over time.

"If you can get several hundred K per second downloading from other torrents, you should be able to get several hundred K per second downloading from VotL."

Okay, I downloaded the torrent quite a long time ago, months ago, I haven't really got a chance to go over it or anything and now that I'm transferring songs, I realize that in the folder, it only contains 868 items.

So am I missing more than a 100 songs?

Should I retorrent the whole batch or is that how it was set up?

Thanks for the reply. I also did a quick search about it and found nothing.

I've tried, I've read, I give up.

How the hell do torrents work?

I downloaded flashget, but after that I am lost, somebody HALP!

Download a BitTorrent client. I use Vuze myself. Install whatever program you choose, then open/click on the torrent link like any other URL on the net. It should prompt that link being opened by the BT client and will proceed to download the files from that torrent.
