    Gaming fans should check out the superb Consolevania an online Gaming show. Its so funny and well put together - these guys deserve there own show.
    Download episodes 1+2 at consolevania.com I would recommend downloading the Mpeg versions so you can burn them to vcd or dvd and watch in comfort on your TV.
    Note there is a lot of swearing :laugh:
    You will need to use a Bit torrent client to get them - They are very easy to use and nice and fast.

    Being a BitTorrent novice, what dl speeds should i be getting when downloading the files for consolevania. I'm dling the mpeg file for episode 1 and my torrent programme, ABC, says dl speed 1.4kb/s and a maximum of 9.2

    Any ideas?

    oh yeah im on a standard 512k broadband connection

    I use abc aswell - great bit of software.
    I'm on 512k aswell - I think i was getting around 25-35k a sec dload speed on these shows. So theres something wrong on your side - is the ports open on your router?? Also how many seeds are there??if theres only 1 then that might slow it down, when i was dloading them there was 2 seeders.
    What upload speed have you got in ABC settings - i set mine to 21k upload when dloading and 25k up when not dloading - this is so your bandwidth isnt swamped by your upload - with this setting i can get a solid 58k a sec dload speed on a good torrent.

    Cheers for the reply captain, unfortunately what you've written means nothing to me!!!! :rolleyes: The only menion i can find about port settins is minimum and maximum which are 6881 and 6999. As for ul and dl speed i can't find a setting for this. And as for seeders well.........if you meanhow many places is it dling from then its just 1 :suicide:

    Upload settings are here... click action then global upload settings and then alter them to what i have.
    Read the Faq on the ABC site - that has some useful info.
    Also check out this site http://www.slyck.com/ it has a very useful guide on Bit torrents. This should help you out.
    Another thing you could do is try dloading a video from Eurogamer as they have excellent dload speeds via bit torrent http://www.eurogamer.net/ You will then see if you need to alter settings or not as if you dont get a fast dload speed on euro gamer then something is wrong.

    I think he means checking the ports on your router and/or Firewall.

    I used ABC a while ago now, but there should be a Setting/Configuration option that lets you set your Max Upload Speed.
    This should be now larger than 80% of your BB connections max upload (normally 256Kb)
    Yep, seeds are people with 100%, leechers anything less.

    Hilarious show. Legend is soooo funny. Not so sure about the game reviews choice though. Thye guy's obviously a game fanatic and that shows in the number of import game reviews they do. Not being an import player i tend to watch these reviews for the funny and sarcy comments but some more main stream reviews would be nice. Though that falls under the jurisdiction of his "pals" at Gamesville i suppose which is not in keeping with the ideal?

    Well ive seen episode 1 & 2 so far, very funny show. These guy's should get a proper late night slot show on tv, would be brilliant. :D :clap:

    Can't wait to d/l shows 3 & 4, and i have to agree that the reviews are so so, it's the other bits that make up for it !! :laugh:

    And it's now gone monthly too..... :smashin:

    In episode 3&4 the games they review become more 'commercial' eg Chronicles of Riddick & Legends of Wrestling, but of course there are still the oddball import games reviewed as well such as Michigan in Episode 4.
