Here is my new Gigatorrent, containing almost EVERYTHING shared on hentairules.net since its creation in december 2006 until the 31st of December 2017, 533 GB of data
I made that torrent from my blog shares, with also the Audio materials provided by Hurp Durp and the occasional mangas posted by Delta-Oblivion.
(2018 change: please, no more µtorrent. Please, use Qbittorrent instead, it works on ALL platforms, doesn’t have the connexion problems or zero-downloding of utorrent with gigantic torrents, and is lighter on your system.)
I hope you’ll like it! ^_______^
Real life comes first, so as I don’t have the time to fix all my old posts and their dead links (if you’re a coder and you know of an auto-reup magical tool, let me know buddy?), I rely on this torrent solution instead
Seedbox owners: if you can long-time mirror it, you’ll be über-cool =)
That’s 533 GB of data.
The gigapack’s contents go into 5 main folders :
– Audios (20 GB)
– Computer Graphics (4 GB)
– Mangas (460 GB)
(including the doujinshi and the rare western comics)
– Pictures Packs (6 GB)
(all the picture packs, also western artists, and animated gifs + very short themed vids)
– Videos (41 GB)
(all of them, the hentai movies, JAV, and 3D videos)
The Mangas folder is the largest.
The syntax of its subfolders and of the files inside is:
[ Artist’s name ] , [ Title of the manga ] , [ English/Japanese ]
For instance ? [ Akiko Fuji ], [ School Zone ] [ English ]
When there are more than one share by an artist, that artist is given his/her own folder, with only his name in it, and his mangas are inside as sub-folders.
See that example (from the Official Bittorrent Client) :
What’s missing from this torrent ? Only:
– Every single manga the WANI publishing Group has asked me to take down from my blog posts on hentairules (I carefully checked from the emails they sent me and, sorry to tell you, if they ask me to remove more, I’ll humbly follow suit, including from the torrent.)
– Same for the contents that Jacob, from Fakku, has asked me to remove from Hentairules, I scanned the emails he sent me and removed from the torrent what he asked me to remove. Deal with it guys, Jacob never belonged to the side you thought, he really thinks that if you can’t afford it you have to abstain from reading it and he has no issue with stopping being the ideal bridge that gave every-day chances and reminders to pay to the people enjoying the tons of well-sorted free stuff, and who are now simply going to move to other sites that don’t give them any incentive to pay (my thoughts, in an image).
– Some picture packs (lost for no reason)
– A few English shares (lost for no reason)
– Lots of hentai movies (I didn’t really care to keep them, frankly, you get the ones that survived mostly by accident)
– Lots of old raw mangas (lost after a huge mistake, years ago)
– A number of the posts by Delta Oblivion (I downloaded most of the recent ones, but forgot the old ones until it was too late, sorry -_-)
– Lots of JAV movies (I only have the ones I uploaded myself)
– The Smaller or Recompressed versions, this torrent only contains full-size versions (to reduce the total size of the gigapack, ironically)
What if you still have on your disk the contents of the previous Gigatorrent ?
– Most of the already existing contents are the same, you can simply let your torrent client do its default behaviour, recognize it is already present and can be skipped (and if you’re paranoid, mark your existing files as read-only – it cannot hurt.)
– The other folders kept their name and their contents didn’t change much, it’s only that new elements were added in them, so you can also safely allow your torrent client to resume the download over the same location
– I made minor changes in the Mangas directory. For instance, creating a new folder to contain a variety of works by an artist, while before there was only 1 work by this artist. Rarely, renaming a wrongly spelled name. I sometimes renamed zips and directories, to reduce the total PATH length it takes, with, in aim, to never go over a length of 235 characters, for safety. A number, out of my ass, I’d estimate around 100 folders or files were freshly renamed to fall under the 235 path limit (that causes mind wrecking confusion with weird torrent client errors, deal with it, it’s for the greater good to avoid it.)
Advice about clients, now
The most commonly known clients are µTorrent, Vuze, Deluge, and Qbittorrent.
Forget µtorrent (that I tested to fuck up real good leeching the gigatorrent, again and again). Go for the alternatives.
I was charmed by Qbittorrent, personally. It works on all platforms, it’s fast, it does the job without a fuss, and when µtorrent was failing to work as expected in the tests, qbittorrent didn’t have any problem on the opposite.
I’ll add feedback about these clients :
– (1) Verification speeds: your client compares (a) what you already have with (b) what you want to download. If you already downloaded a huge volume of data (like 90% of the gigatorrent), that’s a lot of comparison to do, so the verification time before the download can start/resume will be long. That’s the prob with crazy 533 GB large torrents
I noticed µtorrent takes super longer than the competition to do that verification. A measure made with the first version of the torrent, the 2014 version: on my disk, Vuze took 71 minutes to verify a complete 375 GB gigatorrent before starting to seed it, while µtorrent was in the three hours.
But 2018’s huge winner in my eyes is Qbittorrent, verifying faster than Vuze itself.
Fortunately, downloading will start near-immediately as long as you download from scratch, or have only a few gigabytes of the torrent’s content on your disk
Also, if you’re filthy rich, I learned from Kuzko that the verification speed is determined by the quality of the hard disk, so if you want faster verifications, download the torrent to an SSD disk. Lucky for you, the price of SSD disks is sooooooo much lower than when I first made a gigatorrent, in 2014.
– (2) Choosing only a few folders: it’s perfectly intuitive with µtorrent.
Vuze won’t allow you to choose which folders/subfolders to download or not. So, if you want to download only a few parts, do not use Vuze.
With Qbittorrent, by default it chooses to download everything, you’ll have to look around: (option 1) screenshot #1 – screenshot #2 – screenshot #3 – (or option 2) screenshot #4 – screenshot #5.
– (3) Searching for something specific, like a name: as Kaiserham told us in the comments of the previous Gigatorrent, Qbittorrent allows it! It’s in the “Content” tab, mid-height, there is a search field In that case, choose to NOT start downloading the torrent, or to start the torrent but select no file at all to download, then run the filtering, tick the boxes in front of the names you want, either folders or files, and you’re good, click to start downloading
Lastly, I would like to express my great thanks to Kuzko, who helped me through it all. Without his help, his explanations, everything he did himself (for he did everything!), and his seedboxing, there wouldn’t have been a Hentairules Gigatorrent, at all. Thank you, really
