This is awesome!

Leandro, would you feel okay sharing your script, too?  I'd love to see how you manipulate the CoH client via a script to run the demos.

Time seems to keep bouncing up and down. Currently reporting 65% downloaded, two and a half hours remaining. (That 34 hours sure dropped while I was gone to dinner!)

There's really nothing to it. I go through a list of all the MOVs (that Codewalker dumped in the Wiki) and write a demo file with that MOV, then I just call

D:\\CohBeta\\cityofheroes.exe -demoplay mov_list -demofps 30 -demodumptga -fullscreen 0 -screen 720 720

to dump the demo's contents to a folder of TGA files, and then

ffmpeg -f image2 -r 30 -i "D:\\CohBeta\\client_demos\\screens\\mov_list\\movie_%05d.tga" -vcodec mpeg4 -b:v 800k -r 30 "D:\\All the Dog MOVs!\\$mov.mp4"

using the standard ffmpeg static .exe to turn some TGAs into an MP4. There's absolutely no special scripting here, just go through the list, write demo, dump, convert, repeat.

got the full torrent downloaded here. copying it over my server now and will begin seeding as soon as it's done. Also looking to see if I can get any systems on other internet providers to host the file as well. Speed should be going up a little bit now.

Download complete. My system will be up overnight as well, as far as I can tell there is currently outbound data.

I have uploaded about 2.5 GB's so far. Gonna keep seeding throughout the overnight until I get off work here.

Though it's odd, this is what I am seeing but it still says I am seeding...

Remember that the reported down/up speeds include protocol overhead.
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

We have absolutely no reason to give up, and every reason to believe we'll have COH back eventually. We owe it to all the rednames to make sure that all their hard work doesn't go away.  They built us a world, now it's our turn to keep it spinning.

Protocol overhead....well...went over my head. Whats that mean?

it means that, even though you're not downloading anything, other clients are still pinging your computer and saying "Hey, I got these pieces of the torrent, do you need anything? No? Cool. Hey, what pieces do you have?". That chatter uses a little bit of traffic, and that's what you're seeing as your download speed.

Ah gotcha, I stopped seeding just a few minutes ago as I didn't see anyone downloading (0 and 0) but it looks like I uploaded around 10GB's overnight. :)

As always, thanks for the info Leo!

Very awesome. The tracker says 12 people have the full thing now, so it's pretty dang well seeded for anyone who shows up. As long as not everybody leaves. But I figured this particular project was only going to be of interest to a couple dozen people, so I'm pretty happy with the result.

I will seed again tonight when I start work. Great to hear it is 'working as intended' :)

If there is a certain time that people need seeds, let me know and I'll see what I can do. I usually power my computers down when not home but I can make an exception if it's needed.

Thanks again for all the hard work Leandro! Looking forward to what ya have up your sleeve next brother!

I will be seeding it when I am on line. Last night I left the computer powered, but it's better not to do that every day.

Watched a great deal of teh MOVs. They will be a big help in demo-editing. thanks again Leandro.

And now, I need to find myself a project to work on, or I am getting nuts.

My computer is on all the time and I now have the entire thing. I'll be seeding unless my internet goes down, in which case I will be back seeding once I notice it and start the program back up! ;)

Tagging for later download.  Thanks Leandro.
If you see me posting here, you need to tell me to stop it and get back to writing.
