Doing god's work anon.
It's nice to have a failsafe. Also it will make me try some fangames otherwise I'd be too lazy to check out, so thanks
I made Manda No Yume's old versions public again. They're not much different (patch notes are there) but if you want them to preserve or collect then take them, will remove later.
Thanks for the download. I will update the torrent in the future, although not until a large amount of additions occur. There may be quite a lot more fan games in 2018 now that the game has released on Steam, but we shall see.
If we could start compiling a list of known fangames that are missing, we could try to patch some of the holes. I'm certain some of us around here have copies of things that have since fallen off the nets.
Compared it to my much smaller collection and found 4 games not listed, sharing them:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3eaesFoZENLdUV6R2VxeGF6alk
Good. Kadokawa can't fuck with us.
how does this work?
Download and install a torrent application (personally I use uTorrent), then copy the link, right click the browser address bar on a new tab, click 'paste and go" and the magnet link should open in your torrent program (sometimes browsers ask for permission to open the torrent programs, agree to open), then click OK inside the torrent program and it will download.
Thank you. Will be verified and included with the next version of the torrent in the future.
I would recommend qBittorrent. It's free, open source, and doesn't have ads. uTorrent's ads have had ransomware and bitcoin miners in them before.
No, but it was time somebody made a torrent, so nothing is lost.
Going through and picking up random shit after the torrent dump, I spent quite a few hours today exploring 13 Page. It's pretty good stuff, anons. Would love to see some of your opinions, if there's anyone who lurks around or posts still.
It has some interesting cohesion and ideas, although the story seems a lot more blatant than something like .flow.
Didn't want to make a new thread,since this is probably going to be the one people pay attention to/seems like a good place to talk about it.
13 Page anon here, I'm playing Me right now along with Minus Ichi. Me is great, although I dunno if I'll get around to Somnium.
Minus Ichi has some really impressive visuals, and is just standout in it's graphics/presentation overall.
Yeah, I really honest to god don't see why people are freaking out. Yeah, I agree, it's a good idea to have a failsafe in case the worst happens.
I don't know what Kadokawa's reputation exactly is, so I'm not sure if they would pull a Nintendo and request C&D's for most fangames.
I doubt that they would do that, as that would be the equivalent to someone shooting themselves in the foot.
Have the last updated version of Coma (both the torrent and wiki only have ver 0.04)https://ufile.io/i266r>>12819>>12756
It wouldn't be the first time they forbid the creation and distribution of fangames (the first example that comes to mind is the whole Kancolle situation).
What happened with the Kancolle situation?
Sorry, this is honestly the first time I've heard of Kadokawa, and I have no idea what their reputation is.
Thanks. I will verify the files are correct and include it in the next update of the torrent.
I should probably give an update, too. A website for the archive is in progress and will be available soon(tm). On it I will provide an easy way to submit fangames missing from the archive, upcoming additions to the archive, and multiple download methods. Thank you everyone who has kept seeding or has snatched to torrent in full. Even if you do not have the ability to seed 24/7 just having the files on your computer helps with the decentralized backup and preservation of these games.
This is a good idea. I might like to link the repository on the navbar, so if you're interested, email me when you have it working.
You know what I just realized?
The official Yume Nikki: Dream Diary twitter account retweeted a piece of fan art that has Madotsuki with Urotsuki.
Now, I may be grasping at straws here (I honest to god don't know if this counts as grasping at straws) but that says to me three things.
One, the people behind the Twitter accoint know about Yume 2kki, and decided to retweet the fan art to show that yes, they do know about some of the big fangsmes.
Two, the people behind the Twitter account think that Urotsuki is from Yume Nikki.
Three, the people behind the Twitter account saw the fanart, thought it looked nice, and retweeted it.
Personally, I think number two is really unlikely, and numbers one and three are most likely to be what happened.
Like I said, I have no clue if I'm looking too deep into a simple retweet, but if I am, it's nice to know that they care enough to retweet fanart of the game.
The fan game archive website is now available at https://yumenikkifgarchive.gitlab.io
The website isn't fully complete yet, but it should be just about done in a couple of days. Please let me know of any CSS issues too and I will do my best to resolve them.>>12827
Successfully downloaded and will be added into the next version of the archive.>>12825
I'll send you an email.
Ever heard the phrase, "better safe than sorry"? If you haven't learned that lesson the hard way, you haven't lived long enough. >>12829
I'll wait for the next update then seed to at least 100x
So, people have explained this to me before, but I always forget, and Google doesn't help me.
What exactly is seeding? All I remember is that it's something you could do to make the torrent file download faster for other people.
By leaving the torrent inside your torrent client, you upload small pieces of the files to other people who are currently downloading it. That is seeding. The whole point of this is that it allows for fully decentralized storage at very high speeds if enough people are seeding.
Ah, I see. Thank you!
So, when I decide to download the torrent with the fangames, it would be a good idea for me to torrent it, yeah?
I would definitely reccomend downloading via torrent over downloading through your browser. When I put up the direct download, it should only be used if torrenting is completely not possible like cases where the BitTorrent protocol is blocked by your ISP.
The other Anon explained seeding very well. It is from other seeders that your computer downloads the files of the torrent.
For content like this, you should not worry about seeding, as there are not going to be any copyright organizations going around scraping (collecting) IP addresses from torrents to report them to their owners respective ISPs.
If you are torrenting other content like popular new movies or music, torrenting is risky enough, as both downloading and seeding expose your IP publicly, but seeding can make you a bigger target, in theory, as that is technically distribution of copyrighted material rather than just consumption. Think drug use vs. drug dealing, the first is less serious than the second.
Again, enforcement for this, or really all but the most profitable popular major media content like Star Wars or "Pop Singer #92374" is nothing to be totally paranoid about, but paid VPNs (free ones are actually malicious) with no-IP-logging policies can allieve any worries you might have. Over the past two or three years I have downloaded 5.5TB and seeded 22TB (meaning, I've shared the files I've downloaded with people more than once) of anime, games, music, etc. using a VPN I pay $3USD/month for and have never had a single bit of trouble from my ISP.
Myself and other dedicated seeders do this either as a public service, or as part of what's called a "private tracker" to gain reputation within that tracker's community. It is torrent "trackers" which are the centralized hubs through which seeders and leechers (downloaders) initially connect to each other. DHT, a decentralized way of connecting seeders and leechers to each other I do not know much about, all I know is that it exists so that, in the event that the tracker website and server are taken down due to legal action or otherwise, that the torrent can continue to be shared.
Be aware that seeding can sometimes be just as taxing performance-wise, as downloading, if not moreso. I have a separate computer that I torrent everything on that is permanently connected to my VPN. If you have a mechanical OS drive, and try seeding from it constantly, you will likely notice a slight but annoying performance impact.
Is there any interest in creating a torrent(s?) (not Direct Download) for a community-assembled collection of fan albums in lossless/lossy formats? >>>/yn/
posts 8139 and 8140
If fangames could be dmca'd, I wonder if the albums on youtube could be, too?
That would be pretty amazing ye!
I am currently focused on the fan games, however I will consider it. Is there a large list of fan albums?
>>12840>>12840>Is there a large list of fan albums
There doesn't seem to be one on the YN Wiki, or an even close to complete list on the vgmdb.com site, so it might be up to us to create the list. I'm sure there's already a community around the fan albusm in Japanese, but I don't have the skills to cross the language barrier.
>>12842>I'm sure there's already a community around the fan albusm in Japanese, but I don't have the skills to cross the language barrier
I do, but lack the time to investigate intensely. I think you guys should make an IRC channel or something, I could definitely pop up there if needed.
For anyone without the ability to download over torrent, there is now a direct download option available. This should only be used if you are completely unable to download over torrent.https://yumenikkifgarchive.gitlab.io/
"The whole Kancolle situation" is an entirely different matter though, because all circumstances point to the ban only existing out of fear that a fan could make a better KanColle game than the original (which wouldn't be any difficult at all). Kadokawa owns a fuckton of series and they don't care about fangames based on the vast majority of them, hell even Kemono Friends which they murdered so soon after it exploded is free game for fan games.
But yeah, in any case it's always great to have more mirrors. I've suffered a lot with the official downloads for 2kki in the past too so it feels nice having another place to download it from, so thanks for the paranoia.
The ssl cert for the subdomain expired. Can you please set up a cronjob for certbot so that doesn't happen any more.
An archive update has been released!
New archive stats:
293 Games (677 Versions) - 50.6 GB
I've stopped hosting these because they were using experimental options.
I'm going to host the collection with the default options since that's more sane.
As well as continue seeding the torrents for both, currently I have ~3TB of combined upload.https://ipfs.io/ipfs/Qma1KT5TmxJjrPbCiE4aFeZyeSSEdVzSqzZMeVKHYTPP5p/Yume%20Nikki%20Fan%20Game%20Archive%20%28January%2012,%202018%29https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmXHUoF1iWqEg2vJXsrEQdUKivAJ1Ldh2uuZb22LixZKCh/Yume%20Nikki%20Fan%20Game%20Archive%20%28October%2022,%202018%29https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmQBoHpp1Abu77YUe6jmfHnN9Tdg4rK2BR3zCevohLgdBg/Yume%20Nikki%20Fan%20Game%20Archive%20Extras
If the collection updates again I may stop hosting the old versions on BitTorrent since they take up duplicate space where the IPFS ones don't.
God bless, I'll mirror the IPFS stuff for forever.
