Thread for off-site updates.

Postby Monkeymook » Mon May 15, 2017 9:28 pm

This is a last-resort thread, so-to-speak, to obtain new site updates for packs that have not yet been posted to the site.

Listed are both a torrent of new packs, as well as a shared Google Drive Link, which will be available here.

Updated/new packs will be posted once a month (at the end of each), and will be integrated into the main pack once every 6 months (June/July).

Complete pack as of May 15th, 2017
Torrent: http://demonoid.pw/files/details/3553019/
Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9ZQY ... m55NGpPZ2s

EDIT: As per donluca, I have switched the Google Drive links from zips with VGZs to folders with VGZz.
2nd EDIT: New link added to post for Google Drive, now that folders have replaced .zips.

Wow, demonoid still in business? Color me surprised, I remember using it for years.

Also, thanks for the torrent, downloading right now. I'll also forward it to our project staff who have good internet for seeding.

EDIT: a quick heads-up: I can't connect to the tracker and I'm unable to download the torrent.
Google Drive, on the other hand, is working perfectly. I already have the folder synchronized on my Mac.
I might write a guide on how to do that, it's really, really simple.

One more thing:

Since you're using .vgz format, there's no need to compress them into zip files, it's redundant.

My advice is to use folders on Google Drive instead of zips for three reasons:

1 - Those who have the sets synced in their computers (meaning that they have the google drive software to have them in a local folder) have to extract the zips every time they want to listen to their VGMs
2 - If you have to update a single track in a set, you have to rebuild the zip and upload it instead of uploading the single track.
3 - Google Drive gives you the option to download a folder as a zip

It looks like there's been a few people able to download it already. I'm unsure as to whether they still have the three-download limitation for unregistered users, or if you have to create an account there.

I'll look into it. I'll probably end up switching to a piratebay torrent.

I was hoping I did things right. Glad to hear it worked.

Done!

True! It was the first tracker I was ever on, and I joined almost immediately once I was in college. It always has a place in my heart.

Apparently my computer hibernated when I left for work, and stopped about halfway through syncing.

I'm back online, and the issue will be resolved within the hour.

Working perfectly! Synchronizing right now.

I'll write a short and simple guide on how to use Google Drive during the weekend.
