    After battling some health issues after a serious and unfortunate accident, I've finally found time to return to uploading on the forums. If anything I've posted needs re-uploading or I owe you something or you need anything, please do not hesitate to PM me. If I have ignored your PM in the past, I was probably just busy so feel free to bump or re-send it.

    UPDATE March 17: Extra work will be needed after today's maintenance. This will be scheduled for early April. UPDATE Mar 13: I got sick this week, unfortunately, and I'm entering a long workweek, so due to these circumstances, Stage 1 maintenance has been postponed until Saturday, March 17th at 7:00 PM CDT (12 AM GMT). Sorry. I will be conducting major server work on the Kametsu server within the next few weeks. Due to the extensive and complicated nature of this maintenance, it will be done in multiple stages so as not to disrupt the community for too long a time. The first stage will only affect the web components of Kametsu. This includes the forums as well as the various project sites and project-related services, and should be relatively short in duration. The second stage will affect *EVERYTHING* on the server, INCLUDING the XDCC bots themselves, and will likely be of significant duration, although efforts will be made to reduce this impact as much as possible. During the first stage, I will be making some critical adjustments to the SSL encryption parameters as well as updating the SSL software libraries responsible for providing this encryption. I am allocating a maintenance window of 2 hours maximum, although I anticipate that any downtime will be limited to 5-15 minutes at any given time during this window. Again this stage will only affect the web-based services. XDCC and IRC functions will continue to operate without interruption during the maintenance, although the XDCC parser website itself will not be operable during this time. We will point people to join the IRC channel during the maintenance work, as updates will be posted there first. The second stage is going to involve a lot more work, and likely quite a bit of downtime. I will be applying critical security updates to the Linux kernel that powers this server. Unfortunately, because the Linux kernel is the core of the operating system itself, and because the particular security updates in question cannot be live-patched into it, at least one to two server reboots will be required to fully implement them. This will result in community-wide disruption during each reboot, affecting everything from the web-based functions (forums, project sites, etc) to IRC and XDCC as well. Because of this, a date for this particular portion of the work will not be set until adequate planning has been done ahead of time - I will be consulting with @Koby on how to go about this. The tentative maintenance schedule is as follows. This post will be updated if anything changes, so monitor this thread carefully. Maintenance, Stage 1 is complete, please report ANY problems to IkarosBD Maintenance, Stage 2 When: Postponed indefinitely Duration: 3 hours (tentatively) Downtime: Up to 1 hour (tentatively) Affected services: All (web, IRC, XDCC functions) For: Major Linux kernel update + kernel security updates I sincerely apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. We care very deeply about the security of our community and strongly believe this is necessary to maintain that secure environment. Thank you for your understanding...and as always, thank you for being a part of this community! It just wouldn't be Kametsu without all of you!

    As you may have noticed, some updates have taken place over the last couple days. The software the forum operates on has been updated and all themes have seen updates along with it to adjust to these changes as well as add other nifty features. One of the biggest changes you may have noticed is the Reactions. Similar to Facebook, the Like button has seen an upgrade. On posts, status updates, and other content you can now give Like, Thanks, Haha, Confused, and Sad Reactions. I can add more if you have any suggestions (will also require some nice icons to go with them). Not only this, but I can assign reputation points for each action. They could be negative, neutral, or positive. Though just like the fact I've always had the dislike button disabled, I'll also maintain that no negative rep will be added. As of now Like, Thanks, and Haha gives 1 reputation point. While Confused and Sad are neutral (no points given or taken). Basically it'll work like the Like button always had, only it allows to better express yourself.

    I am pleased to report that after a bit of teeth-gnashing and countless head-desking, Kametsu is now fully SSL-enabled! We also want to let you know that, at times, your browser might say 'partially encrypted' or 'some parts insecure' or something similar. You will probably notice this occurring most often in these scenarios: A topic that contains posts that have external images A topic that contains posts made by a user that has an avatar linked externally A topic that contains posts made by a user that has an image in their signature that is linked externally User profile pages that avatars and/or images in signatures are linked externally These scenarios only apply to EXISTING topics and avatars/signature images - that is, they existed BEFORE we turned SSL on. NEW topics created from this point forward are NOT affected by this as any externally linked images are forced to HTTPS transparently. All members: If you wish to assist us in eliminating at least some of these areas, you can do so by refreshing your avatar URL and/or any embedded images in your signature. You do NOT need to prefix https:// to these things. Just re-set the same URL you have had before and save it - our system should automatically enforce HTTPS for it in the future. You need only do this for embedded images in your signatures in most cases. If you externally linked your avatar image, you'll need to do that for it as well. If you notice any other site-breaking issues, please post in this topic so we can take a look. Thanks!

    Because I've been thinking of this for a while and I've decided to finally go through with it. At the end of August this change will take place. Kametsu Forums will be rebranded as simply Kametsu (or Kametsu Community) and the address will change to simply "kametsu.com". Think of ".com" being an appreviation of "community" if you wish. Why? The main site doesn't have much use (literally went almost 18 months without any updates), and it's all about brand recognition. It makes sense to have the focus of the place on the main domain; not on a sub-domain of it. The main site as it currently is will be moved to something like "kametsu.com/blog" or "blog.kametsu.com" or whatever I end up doing. More than likely it'd simply vanish until we get new reviewers and news posters (hint hint, if you'd like to post reviews or keep up-to-date with news on the blog, put in an application with me!). The current address "forums.kametsu.com" will redirect back to the main domain when this change happens and the redirect will likely be in effect for years to come just so everyone will be able to realize the change. So be sure to update your bookmarks and whatnot.

    As you're likely aware by now, Kametsu has been forced to undergo changes in order to continue to exist and keep its staff members out of legal trouble. There was no other possibilities to be had. So please refrain from suggesting ways to get around the situation, and please do not attack the staff for the decisions made. What is done is done. No we will not be bringing back the content you're liking to be wondering/asking about. No we cannot access the content to back it up for you. No we cannot recommend other sites that participate in such activities. Please understand our situation. If you have any suggestions for the community going forward, we're all ears. We're looking for ways to breathe life into discussions, continue to draw new members in and keep them around actively participating in discussions, etc... To this regard we have many changes we plan to roll out within the coming month. One of which is usergroup levels in which you advance ranks based on various things such as account age, post count, and reputation points. This'll give you styled names in the online list as well as various perks such as larger Private Message box, access to other boards, less flood control on searches, ability to give out more rep points per day, custom titles, and more. We're also looking into having the occasional Steam key giveaway contests to and various gaming activities where hopefully we can get enough people together to play some online games together, stream gameplay, write reviews, give recommendations, etc. We're also looking for news writers to keep up with the latest news on television, movies, anime, toons, and games. I'm also pondering the idea of a points system with a shop for possible profile treats (just in the name of fun), and various other possibilities such as maybe the ability to pin a thread for a certain time, bump it, feature it, custom user style, or something. We had something like this years ago, so it may be fun to bring back provided such thing exists. Also, we're going to be looking for ways to cut costs of the community and ensure the community can better maintain itself. What this entails, I'm not sure at this point, but for now, if you'd like to continue to show your support for the community: donations are welcome as always and much appreciated. And if you have any further questions or suggestions be sure to voice them. Just please by courteous and realize this entire event has been extremely taxing and stressful and we've had to deal with hundreds of inquiries already across all social media platforms.

    My sweet lil Addie-nae, no matter how old you grow, I will forever see the entire galaxy of stars in your eyes. Your smile will always be brighter than the sun and your cheeks the refuge of my silly kisses. I am looking forward to seeing you every morning with that goofy and grumpy face that you make. I am happily anticipating seeing you learn and grow beautifully every year. I am excited to see you conquer the world with your infectious laughter and boundless energy. Blow a wish into the stars and dream with all your heart. Dance to the rhythm of your heartbeat and sing lovely songs with the birds perched outside your window. Embrace the bright sunshine and sparkle like the dazzling starlight. Because at 5, you can do whatever your heart desires. Happy birthday, little princess.

    We sincerely apologize for that prolonged outage the other day. After monitoring the server for a few days I am ready to post a detailed report about what happened this time. What happened?! At approximately 4:00 PM CDT (GMT-5) on April 19th, the entire set of Kametsu websites became completely unresponsive. Active troubleshooting began at 8 PM CDT - I had been unable to respond to the incident immediately as I had been asleep from 3 PM to 8 PM CDT. Initial investigation revealed that the CPU load average on the Kametsu server had nearly exceeded 7 times the maximum CPU time available, and this had in turn caused the web server to effectively freeze, unable to accept or process requests due to the enormously abnormal load on the system. A check of the process list - after a few failed attempts to obtain that list due to resources being obviously strained - showed that the web server processes were consuming almost the entirety of this CPU time. The web server processes were all forcibly killed to ease the load on the system and give it time to return to idle. Once this had occurred, the main web server process was restarted. Within minutes, the CPU load began to spike again, and when this started to occur, a quick check of the process list once again showed one of the web server processes consuming well over 100% of the CPU consistently, without abating. Troubleshooting immediately shifted to the web server configuration and its various modules and libraries, and tracing back each and every one to determine if one of them was causing the problem. Unfortunately, this took a lot of time as there is a lot of these to go through and trace, and this effect wasn't always immediate, sometimes it took a while to actually occur with each process restart. Eventually I had determined it was not any of the loaded modules or libraries. Given that the server had previously thrown errors the day before (see the other RFO for details on that), I opted to reboot the entire server itself to see if that would fix anything. While this was effective in providing a cleaner environment, this unfortunately did not fix the issue. Troubleshooting then turned to the server configuration and server logs themselves. The log files hinted at a possible recursion problem, but did not indicate where it would possibly be if there was one. I began looking at our redirect rules that we use in various places across the server to see if one of them would be causing it. I eventually found the problem after nearly 2 hours of testing at this stage - an old redirect rule that redirected forums.kametsu.com (which is not valid anymore) to the base domain of kametsu.com that had been mistakenly left in place when it should have been removed. This rule was causing a recursion error with search bots that were still relying on the old URL, because the supporting rules that assisted in that redirect had already been removed. Given the frequency by which search bots crawl our site, this was causing so many recursing requests that it was completely overtaxing the web server. I had to observe this over a period of about an hour to be able to confirm this was the case, and once I was able to confirm this, the old redirect rule was disabled, the web server restarted, and monitored for a day or two to ensure no recurrences. Thankfully, there were none, and the server returned to normal soon after. What was done to resolve this? As stated above, once the cause was nailed down, the old redirect rule was fully disabled as it should have been in the first place. Once it was disabled, the recursion errors went away and the server went back to normal load. Normal service was confirmed restored at approximately 4:25 AM CDT on April 20th. Last words Once again, I sincerely apologize for the trouble this caused everyone, and especially for the extensive downtime. Had I been able to respond quicker, it probably wouldn't have taken as long. From this point forward we'll have a better system in place for responding to incidents like this in the future. I'll also make sure to be thorough with my work on the server from now on - and probably a good idea not to touch things if I'm drunk or drowsy. Many thanks again to our wonderful staff for keeping everyone updated as I progressed through troubleshooting. I spent nearly 12 hours straight troubleshooting the server, even sacrificing my dinner, to get this community back up and running. It was not easy to do but I love this community so much I'm always willing to go that extra mile.

    I know most of the shows I uploaded are down. I don't have much of the anymore, because I deleted them a while ago. I try to re-download and upload them again. I can add you to my Google Drive account, which I will regurlary update. I know I told you guys I quit, but I think this is very sad, so I will try to help you out!

    A new theme makes an appearance. Say hello to Titan. Hope you enjoy it, and if you have any background image suggestions, feel free to let them be known as I will be looking forward to adding some more and swapping out the existing ones. The backgrounds also control the color scheme of the navbar and forum category headers. I've also applied all the forum software updates, which mostly includes performance increases and some backend updates you likely won't know about or notice. To get in the Holiday spirit, I've enabled Snow on most of the themes. This also changes the non-image forum icons to * as well as adds one to the site name text in the headers. =) Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays everyone. Enjoy the Winter Solstice. If the snow is causing your PC to lag or just annoying you. You can disable it with adblock kametsu.com##.ipsfocus_snow or by using Stylish (or something similar). .ipsfocus_snow { display: none; }

    As of today, we're being bought out by Disney. They will be rebranding the site and incorporating the forum within their new streaming service. All of your favorite Disney shows will soon be available via this new service and all current forum users will receive lifetime membership access grandfathered in for the low one-time payment when the time arises so if you'd like to hear more information about this change, please private message @Ryutai as soon as possible. Obviously this was a joke. If you got fooled by my lame attempt, you might need help, lol.

    Don't worry guys, the anime focus sure as hell isn't going anywhere. This actually opens the door up for us to be able to do even neater things to make up for what we lost, we really think you guys are going to like this a lot once we start rolling out the plans. You guys are what make Kametsu great. Nothing else. No amount of downloads could ever surpass that. A forum cannot even exist without each and every one of you and we sincerely hope you stick with us for the long run. This was an extremely stressful time for us to ensure we could keep this community operational, and we endured it for you guys because we just care that much for all of you. You'll all have plenty more opportunities down the line to make suggestions to us as to what else we can do on this forum for you all. That's another positive aspect of all this too. I sincerely believe the future is brighter for Kametsu now. I really do. We rise from the ashes anew, and become even greater.

    xdelta3 GUI 2.0 Synopsis: I have forever been in search of gui for xdelta for patch making. After trying out 3 or 4 different ones, I stumbled across this one from a 3 year old github repo. Of course with it being this old, there were some features and functionality missing, not to mention it was using an outdated xdelta3 package. From this, xdelta3 GUI 2.0 was born. Status: COMPLETE (always a work in progress) File Host: Mega, github Affiliated Groups: Jordi Vemeulen (original creator), Moodkiller (modifier,updater) File Size: ~1MB File Extension: .exe Changelog: Changelog includes: v2.0.8 Fixed 3.Apply Patch-Windows.bat creation to look in correct directory for xdelta3 executable. TO ADD ---------- • Make GUI dragable while patch making is running. • Create scripts to run on Apple OS. • Change icon in menu bar. • xdelta3 source wildcard (so that any new version of xdelta can be placed in the root folder). • drag and drop functionality. • Add a new option where one could specify what patch extension they would like. • Fix .zip making - currently makes an empty .zip fle. • Use one CMD window when making patches for more than 1 file. • Add @pause to patch making CMD and .bat application CMD. Feedback and suggestions are welcome, otherwise I hope you all find a use for this. Credit goes to all those who helped on IRC with their respective inputs, namely @CaptainJet, @Koby, @Etzimal, @JohnFlower and @SakuraChan Screenshots File Hosts: Current version: 2.0.8 xdelta3 GUI 2.0 - Mega | md5sum: ffb799191d16da8d16591bb22a0e115f | VirusTotal Results xdelta3 GUI 2.0 - Github Notes: • Seen as this was brought up, to solve the high RAM usage, just remove "-B 1073741824" from the arguments section. The risk is that you may end up with a larger than required .vcdiff file especially if just patching fonts or 1 audio track.

    As with any major upgrade, I'm sure people will have questions as to where certain features, etc.. are now located. We're also likely to have a lot of broken things around the community so if you notice anything please bring it up here as well. I'll try my best to respond to any questions and concerns as well as suggestions. Let us know what you think of the changes. New Themes will be arriving soon. None of our old themes are compatible, however we may try to re-introduce similar themes as soon as we can.

    Forum software has been updated. Quite a few new adjustments/features such as emoji support and better searching. Themes currently not updated except for Titan 4.3 so expect some bugs on the others until I can get them updated (requires repaying for them all too).

    Going to be making some changes soon, one of which is making the jump to SSL / HTTPS. The other is the possible arrival of a VIP type board for Cartoon / Live-Action uploaders who are having issues with people stealing links to post on other sites; which would require someone to have been actively posting or contributing to the site for a while; which should cut out the people more prone to link sharing.

    ExtraTorrent.cc is now the largest active public torrent tracker. ThePirateBay is a shell of it's former self, riddled with pop-unders and fake torrents. Other noteably sized trackers include RARBG.to and TorrentDownloads.me Either way public torrenting on giant sites is a dying breed. Any site that takes over is just going to end up being the next big target for takedown. Problem with sites like KAT is the owner was apparently making millions off pirated works (reportedly had over 28 million in one bank, and had 14 million in ad revenue within a few months in another bank). It's one thing if you're doing something like that for free, but when you become a millionaire off pirating copyrighted material, then of course you'll be a target. The point of pirating isn't to make money, but to share what otherwise couldn't be shared. I pirate because otherwise I couldn't afford to watch stuff through legal means. Yes they're working on making things cheaper to obtain through streaming means and such, but a lot of people around the world still get locked out due to region-locks and the like. Until they make free options which are region-free, I believe piracy isn't going away. It's something that likely will never go away, but they can work towards lessening it. Unfortunately they'd rather point the finger at big shots rather than fix the system that created them. Talking shit about feds isn't going to help. At the end of the day, what KAT was doing was illegal. You can't blame feds for taking down something breaking the law.

    Let me stop you right there. No one ever said this. Discussing a release (for example: Death.Note.S01.540p-Hi10p.BluRay.FLAC2.0.x264-CTR) doesn't tell anyone where to get it. I talked about the discussion of releases. Not vaguely pointing users towards said releases. I didn't say anything about ''oh by the way, you can find it on <website> or <XDCC bot>''. Nothing of the sort. If the word CTR here (I can't think of any other plausible word) is somehow meant to point people towards piracy, you might as well ban the words Kametsu, Koby or SCY then. Or any word that could be vaguely connected to piracy. There's this subreddit named /r/piracy with over 300k subscribers. Thousands of users discussing piracy every single day, with no illegal links being shared (and those who do and disregard the rules get banned). The mere discussion of piracy isn't going to get anyone in jail or put them at risk, lol.

    We apologize for that unexpected prolonged outage. Here is a brief failure report. What happened?! During the overnight hours on April 18th-19th (US time), we experienced a database crash. The database was subsequently checked and restarted, and this appeared to fix the problem initially. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to me at the time, the root cause of this had been left unaddressed, and as a result the entire web infrastructure became unusable minutes later, and I was forced to redirect the site to my emergency backup server in order to troubleshoot. Upon inspection of the server, it was discovered that the web server's log files had grown to such an enormous size that they had eaten up every last byte of remaining disk space on the root partition of the server. We found that our usual log rotation processes were not performing correctly, and this is why the log file had grown so large. It was also discovered that this had been the cause of the previous database issue, as well, as those data files are stored on the same root partition. What was done to resolve this? In order to resolve this problem, I first had to move the overgrown log files off the server. We retain a subset of these logs for diagnostic purposes in case of internal web server errors. Since the server processes for rotating old log files out of the way was not functioning properly, I had to quickly determine exactly which of these log files to move and retain, then compress them and move them off to the larger partition. This process took time to complete due to the sheer size of some of these files. After this was done, the entire web server log directory was completely wiped clean and the disk space freed. Since the database files were also on the same root partition, I wanted to avoid any future problems regarding these files. The data directory was moved to the larger partition, along with the existing data files. The original copies located on the root partition were left untouched, and what we will do from this point forward is back up to the root partition and run the database from the larger partition. This should avoid the database being constrained by the limitations of the root partition itself from now on. Once all these operations were complete, the primary infrastructure was restarted, and the web server was pushed back to the primary server. Login sessions were all reset as a result of this so you will have to log in again, but everything APPEARS to be in order again. Last words I sincerely apologize for the trouble this caused everyone. It certainly caught me off guard, when I should have been watching the disk space more closely than I had been. I feel wholly responsible for allowing this to occur in the first place. The good news is nothing appears to be damaged, and everything does appear to be working again. But if anyone encounters a forum error again, please let me know ASAP. Many thanks to @Renzourin for catching and reporting the initial issue to me, and to @Koby for jumping on IRC and keeping everyone informed while I worked on the server.

    A little late to the party considering we've had over 6,000 more posts since hitting such a landmark but still... We've hit the big half million community posts. 500,000 Posts Woo-Hoo!!! Only took us about 9 years, lol. Here's to many more years to come. Thank you everyone for your contribution of making and keeping Kametsu a great place for everyone to come for so long.

    That's what the "light switch" button in the top left corner is for. If you don't like the editor, use the regular text box. Let me know if you have any other issues. Just because you didn't look into something, doesn't mean it isn't there for your use. Just because something is different, doesn't guarantee it's worse. It's a pretty basic human trait to dislike change and that is basically all these complaints are. C-W users didn't want change. Kametsu uses state of the art software (it's actually constantly being updated, bugs fixed, etc.. but then you get what you pay for). C-W used buggy software that hadn't been updated in nearly 10 years (again you get what you pay for. phpBB was free; IPB is $160 up front then $25 every 6 months for maintenance). Had no support, had no spam management, lacked a lot of things. The only thing C-W had that Kametsu doesn't currently (that has either been brought to my attention or I've personally noticed), was anchor bb code tags. If you find something specific lacking, bring it to my attention and perhaps it can be looked into. Kametsu is better maintained, better looked after, the rules are actually enforced, trolls are not allowed to run rampant, staff actually visit the forum (and if they don't, they either gave notice of their away time in the staff room; or would be demoted after a while). No one honestly cares if you were a member of C-W or not. This is not C-W. This is an entirely different entity that has been around longer than C-W and has remained active because we actually put work into maintaining it. Regardless if you came from C-W or simply found us through other means, you'll still be starting from the bottom. New account, no posts. C-W's database was fucked up, errors galore, and could not be fixed. So it wasn't merged. If C-W was to have continued into the future, it would have required a complete and total restart from scratch anyways to solve the problems it was having. @Nick, as for the email validation thing. You know, you only emailed me. ME ONLY. I'm ONE person. I HAVE A LIFE OUTSIDE THIS FORUM. I have a baby to raise and love, and a job to maintain to put food on the table, etc. If it takes me 3-4 days for a response, oh well. It can't be helped. Also how do you "barely" send an email? Either you do or you don't. I didn't reply yet, so stop your lying. As for a "bunch of errors". Again, I don't believe you. You've already been caught in a lie. Either screenshot said errors or shut up. As for "dumb new rules"; they're not dumb nor new. We are NOT C-W. We're older and still around for a reason. If you don't like the differences, then leave. If you come here expecting the same crap you got at C-W; then you're shit out of luck. We are NOT C-W and never will be. "When are people on the internet ever going to know when to leave things alone? Quit screwing around with a forum that was already fine the way it was." Stop sounding like an idiot. You clearly didn't know anything about C-W either. Again, I'll repeat myself from above: C-W's database was fucked up, errors galore, and could not be fixed. So it wasn't merged. If C-W was to have continued into the future, it would have required a complete and total restart from scratch anyways to solve the problems it was having. C-W didn't want a forum to start with. C-W started out as a cap & encode group and wanted to get back to their roots. So it was basically shutdown the forum and not bother giving people a home to go to, or link here. They asked me, I okay'd it, and agreed to give some of C-W staff their same positions here. If you don't want to be here, you're more than welcome to leave. Or I can even help boot you out with a ban if you'd like. *EDIT* To top if off, you lied a second time by claiming you made another account. When this is the original account you wanted validated. Which proves you managed to validate it just fine on your own (which would be a 3rd lie). For another thing, if you had made a second account. Multiple accounts is against the rules and stated as an automatic ban-able offense. One post since you've joined, and already lied three times. Nice record there man. Just for that, I'm not gonna feel ashamed for posting this: As it shows. You've used no other IP's, and there are no other accounts under that IP. If you bring legitimate concerns, problems, or features we're lacking to my attention. I'm more than happy to look into solving them, or possibly even looking into creating/adding said features. If all you do is harbor ill-content, though, I'm not going to even bother caring about your opinions.

    MPV - Made Easy! (Moodkiller Edition) X Synopsis: The MPC version for MPV. Seen as MPC is no long in active development (based from the original thread date), MPV is becoming, and should have become, your go to player. Below is the personal player configuration I use. Its a mixture of one of the stock standard gui releases with some userscripts that have been tweaked. This is based as closely as possible on how MPC used to run in terms of shortcut keys and functionality. You should feel right at home, but up to date. Feature List: Similar feel and behaviour to MPC-HC (shortcut keys and mouse buttons) : a - Toggles audio track. s - Toggles subtitle track. Spacebar - Toggle pause. Mouse right-click - Toggle pause. Mouse side-buttons (if applicable) - Skip through chapter markers. Left/Right arrow keys - Seek ~10 seconds forward/backwards Up/Down arrow keys & Mouse wheel - Increase/decrease volume by 5 Shift+S - Take screenshots (with subtitles). Ctrl+o - Full-featured open file box. Ctrl+g - Go to a specified timestamp. Screen-shots are placed in the root videos directory under a new folder called "Screens". Seek bar thumbnail preview. Visualiser for audio tracks. Remember video position of previous played file (video/audio). Lightweight (no heavy filters or extra filters). Adjusted OSC (On Screen Controller) have a smaller footprint and be more practical. Play next sequential file in the current files folder. YouTube link player (drag and drop only) More as I remember them... Installation: One of the nicest features of MPV is that it requires no installation and can be run from its own folder (portable). Clone or download this repo. Unzip to your desired location. Run updater.bat (this will download the latest MPV GUI build from the source stated below and youtube-dl if you pressed 'y' when prompted). Optional: Run installer/mpv-install.bat as administrator to set file associations. Hexchat Integration: Hexchats latest version (2.14.1) doesn't have any built in "now playing" plugins to use. And as of this version, the default MPC-HC "now-playing" script doesn't function. I have included a modified version of an MPV now playing script from github user, FichteFoll, in this pack. A prerequisite, Python 3.6 needs to be enabled/selected when you install Hexchat. If you have Hexchat already installed, no problem, just re-run the installer and choose Python 3.x from the Custom Installation screen (right at the bottom). Right-click and copy the file 'mpv_np.py' (located in 'Hexchat plugin') from the downloaded pack. Press the Windows key+R and type '%APPDATA%\HexChat' and press enter. Paste the copied file into the 'addons' folder. In Hexchat go to Window > Plugins and Scripts > Load and browse to your addons folder where you pasted 'mpv_np.py'. Normally this is 'C:\Users\moodkiller\AppData\Roaming\HexChat\addons' You should get confirmation to say the plugin has been loaded successfully. Type /mpv in any window while playing a file in MPV and it should spit out something like "*Moodkiller is playing: [MK] Kiznaiver - 01 [BD 1080p][Hi10][Dual-Audio][05856FFC].mkv ◘ 1.945 GiB ◘ [00:04:05 / 00:24:03] in mpv 0.28.0-437-g9efb0278e7" (with colour formatting).

    Since both common MPC-HC codec packs, Kawaii Codec Pack (KCP) and Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP), seem to be dead in the water and haven't seen an update in years... I figured it was time to write a guide to help people ditch them and keep their playback solutions up to date. So here this is. I'll go through the steps of installing Media Player Classic - Home Cinema, madVR, LAVFilters (tmod edition), XySubFilter, and Icaros. Now, a lot of people will likely suggest mpv, and that is also a viable alternative. However this guide is for those who'd like to stick with the MPC-HC video player but keep it updated with the best settings. First we'll start of with: MPC-HC Download the latest installer, preferably the 64-bit edition, from here: https://mpc-hc.org/downloads/ Then simply go through the motions of installing it. LAVFilters [tmod] Download the latest "full offline installer" from here: http://tmod.nmm-hd.org/LAVFilters/ Do a 'Full' installation. On the LAV Video Property Settings update the settings to reflect this: Obviously your hardware device to use will be different than mine, but make sure it's set to use your main graphics card; and that the rest of the options are pretty much the same. XySubFilter Go here and grab the 64-bit version of XySubFilter (unless you've been rolling with the 32-bit editions of everything earlier): https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=168282 Be sure you're grabbing XySubFilter and not xy-VSFilter by mistake since they're on the same page. Extract it, then move the folder to your Programs folder. Right click on "Install_XySubFilter.bat" and select "Run as admin". madVR Download the latest version here: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=146228 Unzip the folder and move it to your Programs folder. Right click on "install.bat" and select "Run as admin". Now you're ready to setup everything. Open up MPC-HC. Hit the "O" on your keyboard or right click and go to "Options". Find the Playback -> Output tab as seen in the image below. Change your settings to match the image. Essentially you're setting DirectShow Video to madVR and Subtitle Renderer to XySubFilter. Then click on the External Filters tab. From there click "Add Filter". Add "LAV Splitter", "LAV Audio Decoder", and "LAV Video Decoder". And click the button for "prefer" on each of them. As seen on the image below: Last, click "Apply" then "Okay" and you're done. With "CTRL + J" you can see what your current settings are and how many frames are lost. It should normally be 0 or as close to it as possible. If you see rapid increases, you'll need to turn down or adjust various settings. Icaros This is totally optional, but it creates thumbnails of your video files and such, even for 10-bit video; and will even put the MPC-HC icon in the bottom right similar to what CCCP use to do. Otherwise without this, you don't get thumbnails and you don't get the icon. You can download Icaros from: https://www.videohelp.com/software/Icaros Then you just install it, run it and configure it how you want. Be sure to turn Thumbnailing on so that it actually does it's job, lol. You can also setup a cache so that folder renderering is faster.

    I GOT THE JOB! WOO HOOOOOO! In case you're wondering what the outburst of excitement is about - I had an interview today for a new full-time position with a BPO (business process outsourcing) company fulfilling one of their many contracts. I am very, very pleased to announce that I made the cut! WOOOOO!

    So it's that time again. Another season is wrapping up, and that means it's time to start the process of nominating picks for Anime of the Season! I'm afraid I'm not as fancy as Koby is with his posts. But this should suffice regardless. Same rules as before: Each user may only nominate one show Nominations period is for one week, starting today. Nominations will run from October 1st thru October 8th. The thread will lock automatically after that time, and the poll will be created Sunday evening. I will update this post as necessary as nominations come in. For reference, the summer chart is located here - please check this chart before nominating a show in this thread, as it needs to come from the Summer 2017 season.

    The current theme titled 'Asphyxia' is a completely custom theme I coded myself. It's not finished as it still needs some tweaks here and there and some sections still need proper styling (such as the Private Messages section), but I figured it was best to go ahead and put the theme out there so we could get rid of that default IPS theme as well as get users to trouble shoot this one considering it's the first theme I've did for IPS since IPS 1.3 about a decade ago. Let me know what you think. Also feel free to give any suggestions for changes or fixes, etc.
