    Hmm, I was seeding it for a while, but it seems like I must not be connecting to anyone or something, because I didn't have anyone grabbing data from me all day yesterday. At first I figured it might be a problem on my end, so I shut it down temporarily. I'm going to bring it up again after work and see if anyone connects.

    restarting the program usually fixes that, it's been happening to me too. I think it's just the tracker not updating or something like that.

    Aye, I'm back to seeding away =) I still haven't actually had the chance to burn it to DVD so I can watch it, but at least I have it on my system now so that I can when I get time (maybe this weekend)

    Woot registered. So i'll help with the seeded. Hopefully we will get a crew together that is filling in TF2 outfits or at least some fun like that.

    Oby = another fellow crew member. Welcome to this amazing community.

    ... We have ideas involving a TF2 cosplay group next year, but just about everybody wants to do that, right? ;)

    BTW: Editing has started on the Community Disk, and depending on how much I feel like working on it this week, it shouldn't take more then a week to finish.

    Yep, I have the JoCo Bad Horse video; I can send you the non-YouTube'd version, if you'd like it (it's *slightly* better quality than that compressed YouTube one).

    I'm looking forward to seeing this, way to go Coldbrew! I'll try seeding, but my connection speed is so very awful; and it's going to take me an eternity to download, but I'm excited to see it!

    I wish I wish I wish I had internet at home so I could snag this. *sigh* And cosplaying TF2 sounds like a blast, but.. not sure if I want to do that, or some random other nerdy cosplay.

    Well the cosplay was just an idea that started floating around between us, in all honestly it's probably not going to happen, but ya never know.

    Also if there's another forumer gathering anytime soon i might just be able to bring my laptop and burn off some disk copies to anybody that wants it.

    It's funny, because MeeOk just escaped from retail! And now she has a super swanky job!

    Really, though, I think now that the HoG has been activated, there are Seattle parties all the time!

    Indeed, retail and food service jobs tend to be full of a lot of fail, depending on where you get stuck. Now I'm a Law Office's bitch. *cough* I mean, I do support services. Once I get around to, oh, I don't know, getting a couch (which should be soon! Yay for my job giving out Christmas bonuses) and an HD tv (slightly less soon, those are pricey :( Boo to that) I hope to throw some parties at my place on the Hill. ^_^

    lol i was watching the stream of an HoG party recently and i gotta say i wish i was there, lol. So as long as I'm informed of future parties, I'll be sure to join as long as I don't work that day.

    And I'm not saying my job is full of fail, it's just that our labor sucks because of the economy, which means nobody gets any hours. So yeah i wanna get out and hang with you guys, distribute these DVD's and such, cuz im so damn bored! But at least it gives me the chance to finish the work on this.

    maybe a dumb question, but how do you reconnect? is it as simple as quitting and restarting the program, or is there something more to it? i've never had this issue before.

    [edit] well, i deleted and reloaded the torrent, but still nothing. it's weird, i've never had problems like this before.

    Oh, try just restarting the application.

    I don't know why you can't find anyone... *someone* is grabbing from me, I'm maxed out at 30kbps. (I can't give much more because I'm on a craptastic DSL)

    Did you make sure to use the new torrent, and not the old one?

    i've been turning mine on and off due to bandwidth issues (no idea why) but I'm trying to keep it going whenever I'm not around.

    But yeah try restarting the program, or (depending on what program you're using) try right-clicking on the torrent within the program and see if there's a button that says something like "update tracker." uTorrent has it, and it's worked for me when I get the problem.

    well, i think the problem may just be the lack of seeders with the remaining 20% that i need. i found someone now, and i'm d/l'ing at about 75kb/s, although oddly nobody is leaching from me.

    I've got it 100% downloaded, so it *should* be good, but for all I know it could be getting blocked/bottlenecked somewhere along the line. =( In fact, I set it at 45kbps just now, and I don't seem to be getting any more than 17kb or so. Makes me wonder if I'm being throttled by my provider. =(

    I was finally able to finish the download yesterday (after a couple days). I seeded for awhile, but I turned my computer off while I'm away on vacation.

    Haven't had the chance to watch any of it yet! I tried to burn the first file onto DVD but I screwed it up... I'll try to figure it out again when i get back home! :D

    just finished downloading and am starting to watch. a note for mac users, download vlc, rename the file extension to .iso, then load the .iso in vlc and it'll play like a disc, since it won't mount for some reason. anyway, looks great so far!

    hmm that's an interesting note, but yes the .nrg format is fairly basic, I wouldn't be surprised if it was basically the same as an .iso, and VLC is always a good recommendation in my book, though I've been having problems with it lately...

    Anyway, glad ya like it (so far :P), I've taken a bit of a break from the rest of the project but I should be back on it pretty soon...

    [edit] what's with the screwy audio towards the end of final countdown? was the keyboard player just sucking hard, or is that something that got screwed up with the recording?

    Alternatively, if you happen to have Roxio's Toast installed, you can just double-click the nrg file and Toast will mount it in OS X. That will let you use Apple's DVD Player, convert it to ISO, or rip it if you'd like.

    ok, new idea. if you do happen to have to change the file type, make a copy of it, first. i didn't and i changed the downloaded file, and now it won't seed. even undoing it and changing it back doesn't seem to work. sorry y'all. atleast i did get about 140% uploaded before it happened.
