eep, RIAA scare tactics are actually working.

I can give you Angelic Layer, and I think my friend has most of Escaflowne.

Well you should have a hard time finding Escaflowne because it has been fully released in the US for some time now, and the first volume of Angelic Layer just came out. Fansubs are not meant to detract profit from the rightful owners, so if you really like those shows you should support the domestic release.

Suspi: you think i can get Angelic layer? how? >O_o< i have 1-18.. i need the rest to 26 (right?) Escaflowne, as in what format? vcd? computer file? >@_@< i confuse myself

That's because people don't realize that no organization in the world has the resources needed to track down and file suits against every bootlegger.

I also suggest going the DVD route.  Gotta love that A/V quality.  Fansubs pale considerably by comparison.

Fansubs never intended to compete with the authentic dvd version.

Post by: Tsubasa on October 22, 2003, 03:58:17 PM
I know.  Just pointing out that because the DVDs have such better audio and visual quality, they should be far more desirable to watch.  Why settle for less, eh?

Post by: ChibiSerenaChan on October 23, 2003, 10:55:21 PM
heheheh yeah i know i agree!! but then i don't really mind the audio and video quality much.. unless it is REALLY REALLY bad!! i watch most things on my own computer since i don't have a dvd player for my tv or on my computer (this comp is old!!!) and i'd have to watch DVD's in the living room NOT VERY COMFY IF U HAVE STIFF COUCHES YA KNOW!! lol j/k but still i don't mind the ones that plays on the computer since thats what i've been seeing most of time (mostly from borrowing a series from friends that they only play on computers >>_<<) i just want to watch the series!! thats all i care about!!

oh and yeah like i said i'd buy more dvd's but i'm not rich yet!! *is still searching for a part time job*

Beta is still widely used in the entertainment industry. If you compare beta and vhs tapes, beta is actually the better quality. One of the reasons why beta was phased out of mainstream was because it was expensive. Vhs is actually a cheaper medium to use, however the quality isn't as good.

Didn't sony discontinue the format a few years ago? Wow, it lasted longer than LD! XD

"VHS = 8-TRACK??"  :shock:

wow these things never stay on topic do they?

best place for anime of any and all kinds no matter how old it is would probably be "Direct Connect"

official client is here ---->   http://www.neo-modus.com

better unofficial client is here ------->   http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/

connect to these hubs
hub1.crazycatgirl.com
hub2.crazycatgirl.com
hub3.crazycatgirl.com
hub4.crazycatgirl.com
animecorner.no-ip.com
AnimeNation.no-ip.org


Download speeds can be slow at times but on average I download from people at about 10k/s but to get stuff you must have stuff if you dont you wont be able to get into most of those hubs

and if your into comics or older american shows this is a really good hub for them

*laughs at Saffy-kun*

yea personally I hear DC is pretty bad actually ^^;

Serenachan, what connection do u have? I suggest iMesh but according to Saffy-kun it installs Gator on your computer. So far it hasn't done anything on my comp if it's on it.

Also it connects into the Kazaa network as far as I can tell. But since it's never been mentioned in the newa so I dunno if the RIAA is able to get people on iMesh by scanning Kazaa's network. But it's speeds easly beat Kazaa. I've gotten up to 120kb/s several times while dling stuff.

I just searched for Escaflowne and only ep 19 didn't show up. I'm sure I can find it after another search. As for Angelic Layer.....i dunno ^^; not many eps showed up and availibilty is low. so yea, think about it

Also just for RIAA is general, they are looking for people sharing music as far as I know. I don't think anime eps fall under that ^^; So I'm not worried at all. I only have eps and AMVs from amv.org so I don't think I'll be sued. I'm broke anyways :\
Title: Anime Downloading
Post by: ChibiSerenaChan on October 28, 2003, 01:21:36 PM
wow thats good hmm i should try though for sharing anything you guys.. i can't!! i rarely have files on my computer to keep if i want to be dl more!! my computer doens't have enough space so i can only have like one or 2 downloading programs or something... then i can only keep like 1 or 2 anime vids to my computer... therefore i send all the things i've dl to my brother's computer.. and yeah >O_o< ehh..

Imesh eh?? thats new.. i have DSL for my internet connection
Title: Anime Downloading
Post by: gotensfr1 on October 28, 2003, 03:44:49 PM
Then as long as you don't mind the possibility of getting Gator, get iMesh. Delete every p2p except BT and iMesh and you will be pretty happy :)
Title: what do you think?
Post by: Saffy on October 28, 2003, 08:27:10 PM
gotensfr1, SHINDEKUDASAI!!!!

now that thats settled, gator just takes up ram. it doesnt seem to do much else, but i have caught imesh installing things without telling me. forexample, what does "sahdownloader.exe" sound like?

external hard drives arent so bad, ive heard...

my brother was supposed to install new things to my computer but he still hasn't so i have to go through what i go through right now until he does

Post by: Saffy on October 29, 2003, 11:01:27 AM
just delete gator! its called GMT.exe. although deleting too many of the spyware programs installed by p2p programs can cause them to stop working...

ugh my dload speeds suck... XP

Post by: gotensfr1 on October 29, 2003, 11:04:04 AM
p2p = peer to peer

As for Gator, Saffy-kun uninstalled it so you can ask him about that ^^;
so yea, go ahead and post yaro-kun XP

I remember "back in the days" when I first got started into anime. The anime club that I went to would copy VHS tapes for us. But they had a policy of no copy/distributing anything that has been picked up by an American company. Think of it as a "code of ethics amongst otakus" if there ever was such a thing.

Man do I feel old. I hope I don't get sent to the "glue factory" :wink:

*hugs Serena* Its ok, you dont have to understand. ^^ This has turned into a conversation for us anime old-timers, and has touched on one of the very basic and most honored traditions of anime otaku fandom. You dont really need to understand what we're talking about, just understand one thing: Never purchase, download, or distribute fansubs of an anime after that anime has been licenced by an american company.
