The only thing right now to get access time to be quicker is to take down the videos. It really doesn't matter what speed your connection is, it's on the server side. Shawn already took them down once yesterday. It's just the natural order of the internet that when something new comes out EVERYONE downloads it at once and hangs up everything. Honestly I'm surprised the server hasn't crashed yet, it must really be working overtime on this one. I guess there really still is a lot of interest in KOF.

In retrospect, maybe the files should have been hosted on a site like Fileplanet (I think it was Tora that suggested this).

Maybe we should remove them, and just make one video per day available, in chronological order. That way people would have to wait to get #2, #3, etc., rather than trying to get all twenty in one go.

Jesus Christ, wait till the fucking game comes out.

Then you can see it all you want.

Or upgrade to a better server that can actually handle it.

i've got those videos on my ftp server :

host : supergoose.dyns.cx
port : 79
user : neo-geo
pass : kof

max user : 7
max connections/ip : 1
speed : dsl

maybe this will help to decrease the traffic a bit and makes the boards access able. at least i hope so.

I was wondering what was wrong, and why there was such a lag on the site.

I see that Shawn already implemented this, which is a great idea. Some already have all 20 vids, so if you already know someone that does, you can get it from them directly via AOL, ICQ, etc.

I wish I could help more, but I have my hands full at work.

Well, although I am sad I won't get to see more than the intro for today, I think this was great compromise. The server is functional again and I got the movie quick!!! I will try to hit up some other members for the rest today, or just wait... but 20 days, man... you are killing me :) hehe... I want to see mooorrrrreeeee! <img src="graemlins/makeface.gif" border="0" alt="[Make Face]" />

KOF Union is hosting these same videos now as well. They seem to be in worse quality though and they're in RM format (about 2 meg per file).

I have a lot of the files...and I'm on a really fast connection, so please hit the MSN link and hit me up for some videos. I'm bored and doing nothing anyways. I had ONE fucking class all day.

Ok, I just got back from the mall, for any one that wants to snag a few files. I have all except for the two that weren't posted in the first place.

I just thought the site was down.
Amazing how those vid downloads just soak up the bandwidth.

I was wondering why I couldn't access the site. I've got clients to stay in contact with, items in "for sale" to browse, and friends to mingle with on a daily basis here...I agree with what TonK said...

WAIT TILL THE F'N GAME COMES OUT...thank you :D

Good lord, we were getting all the freaks from this site and MadMan's! That's insane.

OH well, I have all the movies...heheheheh. And people, they really aren't THAT spectacular. Nobody's doing cool supers or combos, it's mostly just to see the backgrounds and cry when you see Geese and he's not playable. Pretty anticlimatic if you ask me.
