IRC tutorial for downloading from XDCC bots

69 posts in this topic

Quick Start to downloading in IRC

Start from in the channel #kametsu

pruWD.png

From here we need to locate the Bots in the channel (Bots are what we get

the downloads from.)

Type in: !list

This brings up a list of Bots

Kametsu only has a few bots now. but will be using BreAKDoWN|Bot for now.

Now that we know the name of the bot we can request a list of what the bot has available

for download.(Known as a Pack-list)

For that we type in the trigger needed to get it. (A trigger is a message entered into chat to request a specific thing.)

In this case the trigger is: /msg BreAKDoWN|Bot xdcc send -1

(For other Bots it'll most likely go /msg (bot name here) xdcc send #1 tho -1 is used as as well like here)

Entering that triggers the Bot to send you the Pack-list.

Congrats your 1st download lol. but that's not what you wanted ;)

Next step is to go to where it was downloaded.

Open it (The file has the same name as the Bot) with WORDPAD or an equivalent if using an OS other then windows.

(Yes wordpad because notepad messes up how it looks from what i found.)

Once there you should get something like this.

Next find what you want to download.- We'll go with Angel Beats! for this.

Now to download you need the order number.

Remember the trigger we used before? Well we're gonna use it again but

instead of a -1 were gonna use the number we just got (48).

So /msg BreAKDoWN|Bot xdcc send -1 now becomes /msg BreAKDoWN|Bot xdcc send #48

If you want other things find the order number and place it after the #.no.spaces

between (i.e #xxx)

Now enter that trigger in and it should place you in a line for downloading

because bots only let a select amount of people to download at once. It will tell

you where you are in the line.

But if no one else is downloading then it will start shortly. Let it finish.

When it hits 100% its done and you can now move the file wherever you like.

Downloading with the auto-get feature off. this is usually by default. (*Note this is mIRC specific and my not apply to your client 100%) To change this go to the mirc tutorial here.

So follow the steps like before. but instead of the file auto-downloading this window will pop up:

hKGnq.jpg

Dont worry about it. its just a standard warning. so uncheck the box for "Always show this message" and click ok because you know its coming from the bot.

After that this window will pop up:

SvUpr.jpg

This tells us the info on whats being downloaded.

Nick = Witch bot your downloading from or who your downloading from

File= Name of the file your downloading

Size= The size of the download

You can also click the small folder to browse witch folder the download should go into if you want it to go somewhere other then the default folder.

After you make sure everything is what you want click ok and it will start downloading like normal as described above.

Congrats on the download =)

Btw this is what the bots offer:

[Kametsu]Kuu-chan = Subs

[Kametsu]Xide = Dual-Audio

BreAKDoWN|Bot = Dual-Audio

SakuraServ = a bit of everything so know what your looking for. (i.e was this ever dubbed)

The Easy Way The easiest way to download. (Take note not all channels have this.[if they do it will be advertised on there main site or in the channel.] So you still need to know the long way. If you plain to download outside of #kametsu.)

Go to http://xdcc.kametsu.com/

Click on the left what bot you want.

Browse or search for what you want.

Click on what you want and copy everything in the box that pops up.(Should already be highlighted)

Paste what you copied in the channel

Should start downloading.

P.S Make sure to use !rules when entering a new channel. !rules is used to find the rules of the channel. It's very important for every channel has it's own rules and can and will ban you should they not be followed. Some channels don't have rules or even use !rules but that doesn't make it ok to go crazy.

Advanced Commands

Advanced commands to use in downloading XDCC in most channels, unless otherwise said here or in whichever channel your visiting. Make sure to read the rules of every channel.

!blist - Is used (Only in #kametsu channel) as another way in getting the pack-list. To use just enter !blist

@find - Is used to find something specific. Like episode or whole pack. To use enter in @find + name of title. That can look something like:

@find angel 

[B]@find angel beats[/B]

[B]@find angel beats 01[/B]

If you know the CRC that can be used to.

[B]@find [5846A86C][/B]

This works in #kametsu and other channels

batch downloading - Batch downloading is used to line up 2 or more files to download. The command to enter looks something like

[B] /msg (nameofbot) xdcc batch 200-250[/B]

The 200-250 are the order numbers. So this means you will be lining up everything to download from order number 200 to 250. This works in #kametsu and other channels

!queue - Is used to see were in line for downloading you are. To use just enter in !queue. Works in #kametsu and other channels.

remove - Remove is use to remove yourself from the download line. It can be used to remove one item or all items from the download line.

to remove all use:

[B]/msg (nameofbot) xdcc remove[/B] or [B] /msg (nameofbot) xdcc remove all[/B]

to remove one item use:

[B]/msg (nameofbot) xdcc remove #0000[/B] (0's replaced with the order number you want removed)

This works in #kametsu and other channels

I keep kicking you out of the channel. If you'd learn how to read you'd clearly see the topic and the kick message telling you, you've joined the wrong channel. Go to the new channel.

After some issues showing someone how to download via mIRC....

Can I suggest something?

Can you update it to show the steps of actually accepting the transfer (as if they don't have auto-accept turned on)?

If you want to help out, talk to Koby about it. I'm currently uploading to the bot, but also another problem is the matter of trust, since people could delete files off the SFTP that I'm currently uploading to.

I had been downloading episodes from various sites into a folder named for each series. I was also deleting each file in the folder when I watched it. Maybe not delete anymore and save the folder for upload?

O.o what's the point of downloading if you're gonna delete them after you watch it? Online web streaming sites caters your needs better than these sites. lol

What is the process for adding a series for the bot?

you have to bring it up with koby and you also have to have what he is looking for. hes currently focusing on 720p you would also need to keep the files as well as them all being from the same source.

and angel is right if your just gonna delete the files after downloading web steaming is the thing for you.

I was into watching not achieving. FireFox addon http://www.downloadhelper.net/ allowed me to D/l the vid in the background and save it. Then I streamed it to the Big screen HDTV later for viewing. When done I deleted the file. No reason to watch on a monitor when I can watch on HDTV.

It varies from each provider, for me there isn't any limits except speed caps and a max queue. Koby may have more restrictions.
