The basic principle of Bit Torrent is that in order
to get a file, you're also forced to share the same file back to others at the
same time. In short, the more people contributing, the better. For this project
to really take off, we need a lot of people willing to create .torrent files
very soon after they get the MP3s or CD (which would get turned into SHNs).
First of all, go here and download completedir-1.0.1.exe
In completedir, when you choose the directory, make sure to choose the GRANDFATHER FOLDER. Completedir will make a torrent file for everything in the folder you select. If you select the GRANDFATHER FOLDER, it will select the FATHER FOLDER only. That's what we want. If you select the FATHER FOLDER, it will make 3 torrent files - one for disc 1, one for disc 2, and one for the text file you'll create for the fileset. We don't want that. If you're making an mp3 fileset, follow the same procedure, but substitute 'mp3' for 'shn' in all examples. Once you have set the folder, change the announce url to http://www.sidewalkcrusaders.com:6969/announce
Lastly, go to the directory where the original file was...
...and you'll find nice little .torrent files for
Now, execute the BitTorrent file, and when it asks where you want to save, pick the same directory as where the original file is.
It will scan the file (checking if it needs to be resumed but of course it won't since it's already done). It'll say "done," at which point you'll be ready to upload.
