[HowTo] Become a seeder

If you have a nice upload speed and you don't know what to do with it. We have the solution. smile

Personally I prefer Azureus so I will explain how to setup a seeder using the Azureus BitTorrent client.

Guide for uTorrent

If you're using Linux, OS X or any other OS you'll have to choose a gameupdates.org path that suits your OS.

- Install Azureus (if you're behind a NAT box, make sure the port forwarding is working)
- Using the Plugins menu / Installation Wizard..., install RSSFeedScanner from Source Forge list.
- Wait until RSSFeedScanner is installed. Thereafter go to Plugins menu / RSSFeed Scanner.
- Click on the Options tab.
- Click the green plus sign under RSS Feed URLs:.

Name: gameupdates.org - all
URL: http://www.gameupdates.org/rssdd_all_direct.xml
Directory: (set the path for all gameupdates.org files for example; c:\gameupdates.org_files)
Delay: 10800
(Skip the options)
Active: Check the Enabled checkbox.

- Click Save.

- Click the green plus sign under RSS Feed URLs: again.

Name: gameupdates.org - 10 latest
URL: http://www.gameupdates.org/rssdd_10latest_direct.xml
Directory: (set the same path as above for all gameupdates.org files for example; c:\gameupdates.org_files)
Delay: 300
(Skip the options)
Active: Check the Enabled checkbox.

- Click Save.

- Go to the Status tab.
- Right click gameupdates.org - all and choose Refresh feed.
- Click the plus sign on the left side of gameupdates.org - all.
- Right click one of the files that drops down and choose Create Filter.

Name: gameupdates.org
Directory: (set the same path as above for all gameupdates.org files for example; c:\gameupdates.org_files)
Filter: .*
Filter as regular expression: Checked
Filter searches title: Checked
Filter searches link: Unchecked
Move to top: Unchecked
Set state to Queued.
Override Rates: Unchecked
Set Category: gameupdates.org
Feed: All
Type: None
Active: Check the Enabled checkbox.
Mode: Pass

- Click Save.

You are now a seeder.
Thank you.

Re: [HowTo] Become a seeder

Great post denka.

When entering the rssdd_all_direct.xml it will download ALL torrents which is about 100GB now (growing).
If you have limited space you can skip the rsdd_allxml and only use the rssdd_10latest_direct.xml.

uTorrent guide is coming soon..

Re: [HowTo] Become a seeder

Is there a way to do this only for specific categories?

For instance, I would like to download/seed all new demos... is there an RSS feed for that?  Or should I just use the 10latest one and use filters on my end to only grab demos?

Thanks,
Friedmud

Hi!

Yes, you can set a filter in your client to only download the files you want.
For demos you can type *(Demo/Trials)* as filter if you use uTorrent.

If you think someone will still be interested in it, please upload it no matter how old it is.
Genereally, all new patches and mods is appreciated.

Please note that Satras and rObGeE are both my accounts. I use rObGeE for stuff i do "at work" and Satras is my home Connection smile

German allowed ? big_smile

Also ich hab QSC ... 1,5 Download und 1 Upload. Dafür aber SDSL... das heißt ich kann vollen upload haben und vollen Download wohoo
Ich könnte auf ADSL 16000er updaten und würde das gleiche bezahlen, aber da der Upload da nur 1Mbit ist, wäre mein Ratio dadurch automatisch schlechter. Ich warte lieber auf 2Mbit/2Mbit. Ich denke/hoffe das die noch dieses Jahr bei uns kommen wird smile

Good thing about my connection is i am able to choose my up/download rate once a day myself...

2048/512
1536/1024
512/2048

You see i possible could do 2 Mbit.. but 512 Downstream suxx like hell wink

Re: [HowTo] Become a seeder

Thats great, i didn't noticed that some providers have this feature. Im really looking forward to my new connection in 2 weeks. It will not be the maximum, but the highest connection i can get here. ~125kb up. Thats very good for our german standard connections. smile

256 in kb? I think the normal user has a 2000-6000 connection - 35-55 kb/s upload
