On the subject of torrents: drx, how big is the torrent you're uploading? (I need to know if I should free up some space or not)
Posted 23 February 2008 - 03:23 PM
Domain Name: sonicspin.org
Allocated Disk Space: 1000.00G
Used Disk Space: 94.71M
Total Files: 4480
Allocated Bandwidth: 1000.00G
Bandwidth Used This Month: 0.00b
Bandwidth Used: 0%
Correct me if I'm missing something. If it's not too late, Jen and I would like to go ahead and mirror all of the Mega Drive, Game Gear, and 32X Sonic games (including some of the 3rd party titles) and later host the rest of the Sonic games on our site. We're a small site so we should be able to do this for little awhile. Otherwise we'll go ahead and host them whenever ;p

Shame that Nineko had to quit over something so trivial. Does anybody know what his problems with torrents were?

I mean, if you have only a couple other people in the torrent and they've put a cap on their uploads, then YES, torrents will be slower than most direct downloads, especially if you have something like DAP.
HOWEVER, if you are downloading A NEW AND POPULAR TORRENT LIKE THIS ONE, there are likely to be tons of seeds and peers and there shouldn't be a problem. It can go as fast because it does the multiple file chunk (arguably the "point" of using torrents) download thing that accelerators like DAP use.

Bah, fuck you guys if you want to cut me out of this, I don't care.
I'm going to mirror anyway as soon as I manage to put my hands on the protos (given that I actually manage to do that, which seems unlikely if I understand correctly how things are going on).
the fuck? Over react much?

Mirror list being maintained at http://www.sonicretr.../error/500.html
To be added on list PM me on IRC or AIM (its catch 20 20)

I've got my server downloading/seeding the torrent, I will mirror other files as I get them.

We're no strangers to love~
So are we going to keep a list of mirrors in the OP or what?
Posted 23 February 2008 - 07:35 PM
I strongly urge mirrors to repack the roms into 7-zip format
. Just compress different versions of the same game together and you'll get rather massive compression ratios, cutting your bandwidth costs and making it easier for other people to download. Just make sure to un-rar the files first.

can someone PLEASE update my mirror so it says I have all the sonic protos uploaded?
actually it doesn't seem to matter, no one's downloaded from me anyway =P
EDIT 2: I'm wrong some people have... but no one cares so I don't even know why I'm posting

Just whacked the whole archive on there.
You can also download it directly: http://sonar.heranbago.com/protos/Hidden%2...,%202008.tar.gz
I haven't got 7zip installed on my server.... so it's just tar.gz for now.

Need all we need is for someone to host the Gamecude prototypes. The torrent is just too slow.
Posted 24 February 2008 - 09:58 AM
I'll host it if I can get them downloaded...
