Quote: Enough! Spent about 10 hours trying to get this utorrent thing to work with no luck. Oh well .... just hope some of this stuff gets posted on here with rapidshare or something similar eventually.
Did you check the "Enable DHT" box in the Torrent Properties? Once I did that, I no longer had any problems.
It appears to be downloading but I get a yellow warning message at the bottom (no incoming connections). I've spent a lot of time trying to figure it out on my PC at work and my laptop. I can't get a port open and I've tried the whole port forwarding thing.
Well, typically, none of that is necessary, that's the point I think. Most of the time uTorrent (my assumption is that's the client you chose) is pretty easy to make work with just installing it, then wham, load a torrent and it's done. Torrents are notoriously slow sometimes, it's part of how the technology works, especially with people that don't seed back what they're taking - get a bunch of people doing that and new leechers that come to the torrent don't get anything for their time.
If you have absolutely 0 incoming connections, then it could be a firewall issue if you're running one. I can't go into all that detail here to resolve the issues you're having unfortunately. At this moment (2:08AM Pacific time) we're doing great actually. Nearly 4 complete copies out there for the 1st file (lance isn't one of them anymore, I think he might move on to part 5, or at least that's my hope, and it just jumped to 5 so someone is seeding a full copy).
File 2 has just shy of 3, 3 has just shy of 4, and the 4th file is coming up on 3 itself. People are seeding so that's a big plus for all of us.
I think I'm going to stop turning this into a BitTorrent FAQ and update thread and get back to Jaime herself. For those that might not be able to get this stuff working, here's that short music video clip - I'll leave it posted on the RapidShare link unless lance asks me to pull it down, which I'll do if asked. Note there's no audio, and it's only 13 seconds but, again, it's Jaime, right?

Haha, I remember that song from waaaaaaay long ago. I think I didn't know about Jaime yet at that time .
Anyway, I'm trying to download the files again but I don't see any seeders. There's 3 leechers for file one, 1 leecher for file two, 4 leechers for file three and 2 leechers for file four. So no seeders for any of the files at this moment, the same as eleven hours ago when I last tried...
So can anyone tell me if they're seeing seeders at this moment? I'll be leaving bittorrent run all day long, so please tell me if you see any seeders so I can check if they're visible for me too! That way I can figure out if there's a problem on my side or not.
Well, I tried Utorrent just now and it wouldn't connect but after 10 minutes or so it suddenly started downloading . Very strange that it took so long to start and also very strange that Azureus won't do the job since I never ever had any trouble with Azureus before (I use it on daily basis to download all sorts of things from all sorts of sites and always works perfectly). But whatever, it's working for me now and I promise I'll keep seeding when I have everything
Back at seeding for a while... torrent 2 and 3 seem to keep going strong so I don't need to seed those. Torrent 4 also going strong, but only 2 seeders so I will stay there for a while. torrent 1 seems to have died... no seeders or leachers... if you tried getting torrent 1 and couldn't because there wasn't anyone seeding anymore, now is your extra chance of doing so. I will post torrent 5 soon.
By the way, I'm far from an expert in creating torrent files, but I've been doing it with utorrent... that might explain some of the difficulties you guys are having :| Maybe using utorrent instead of other programs will help.
Jaime 5 of 9, the biggest file thus far - Full DVD's, movies, full episodes of ongoing TV shows (LOST, 24, Heroes etc), Torrent files and MP3's are also not permitted here due to the obvious copyright issues.
