Kanon 20 released

I'm currently reuploading Super Hero Taisen, so if you've had audio problems, a version 2 is coming out. Till then, savvy forum user Venares has written a bat program to convert the surround sound track to stereo, which should help with the compatibility.

By the way, why do you think Toei movies are as bad as they are? Contribute to this thread!

And if you haven't noticed, http://wiki.tvnihon.com/ is the new url for our wiki. There's no excuse to forget it now!

Spammer update

Quick update on the spammer situation. We've pretty much gotten the flow of spam accounts down to a weak trickle, but takenoko and I have been banning large swaths of Russian IPs left and right so if you're in Russia you might have to email one of the admins to unban whatever ip address you're using.

 

Also I've been pretty agressive about deleting any suspicious new account that comes in, so if I accidentally delete yours and you're not a spammer, sorry! Please make a new one and add something to your profile. I'm less likely to delete accounts with some profile information filled in.

Spammers!

So last night we were hit by a rash of spammers. Looking over the accounts, we decided to just delete all the accounts that never made a post. (4447 accounts in total). Sorry to our actual silent lurkers out there, but you'll have to reregister!

List of deleted accounts:

Edit: Link should be public now if it wasn't before. Sorry about that!

Streaming to your Device

So I tested out PS3 Media Server, and it's pretty good. It plays the files that TVserity couldn't, it's free, plus I like the way they structure their files better. Plus, despite its name, you can use it for various devices besides the PS3.

So check it out:

TLDR version of previous post

Previously I was copying the files onto flash drives, sticking them in my PS3 to play the videos.

With the current setup, I'm just using the program to stream the videos using the computer's wifi to the console.

Using Tversity to stream to a PS3

So I might be a bit behind on this, but I finally bit the bullet and turned my PC into a media server. It was all pretty simple actually. Just got the software from TVersity (had a license fee of 4 bucks, pretty cheap), turned on the wifi on my pc and that was pretty much it. Turned on my PS3 and the media server was in the Video section.

Before, I was putting the files on flashdrives with FAT32 file systems on them. It was alright, but this way will save me a step. I tried a few of our releases as well as some stuff from Youtube, and it looked pretty nice (Even the SD stuff, surprisingly enough).

Unfortunately, there's still a problem with pre-2009 xvid encodes which simply won't play at all in this method.

Anyway, just thought I'd blog about it to let people that they always have options when playing back our files.

Thank you for the response and kindness!

Server Donations

It's that time of year again.  We need to pay for our server.  The goal this year is $500 USD.  The donation button is on both the front page and the torrent tracker.

Thank you to both the future and past donors for your kindness.

Oh my, this is different

I guess this is our new front page.

So what do you think?

Photobucket working (maybe all along)

So I tried the upload button from within a certain album on my account and it worked! Whenever I tried using the upload button from the main page, it took me to a site maintenance page. That's so dumb.

Anyway, pictures have been added to all the posts since Fourze 46.

Server maintenance cancelled

Postponed for another day.

Aaaaand we're back

Tracker looks like we've taken the TARDIS back to 1992, but it's up. Go happy downloaders!

EDIT: Okay, so you can't actually download anything without it asking for a username and password. Oops. Working on it.

W EDIT: WHEE WE'RE ACTUALLY BACK. Tracker design is temporary, so the sooner you submit designs the sooner we can get search functionality back.

In the meantime, please go gay over this picture of Date Akira. Takenoko already has.

Monday update

It seems like it would be more effort to patch the old tracker software, so a new one is being made. Hopefully this one will be less exploitable!

We're holding a contest for the design of the new tracker. This is a page a lot of people see, so please do a good job with it. Details here.

Just to reaffirm things, I don't believe the old tracker was shooting viruses and stuff into people's computers. If it were really that bad, we'd have a lot more of an issue. It just seems like someone somehow got in and added a harmless spam redirect.

We'll probably hold off on releasing more Agito for now. If the tracker is still down when our Go-Busters is ready for release, we'll just do a direct download release.

Tracker design contest

So we're thinking of using a new tracker. What we want from you guys is a new design for it.

We'll be taking applications for it. Submit a picture or html code or whatever. The winner's designs will get used for our new tracker page.

Hope we get some good ones!

Don't click on the tracker url from Google

Apparently if you click on the link from google, it sometimes takes you to a Thai spam page. Just bookmark the torrent page url directly.

Specifically, use this url with the index.php at the end: http://tracker.tvnihon.com/index.php

For some reason Avast is blocking http://tracker.tvnihon.com/ by itself, so that might mean something?
