Re: Trouble Downloading Large SegaCD Manuals
You're right, some of the manuals are quite large. I'd prefer if people didn't tie up the server downloading a single file for over an hour, but I suppose it's okay if it's only a handfull of manuals. I've bumped the timeout up to two hours.
Which manuals aren't resizing? I tried setting the Shining Force CD pdf to 100DPI and it weighed in at 2.5MB. I also fixed a little bug with the filename missing the dot.
I'm having real trouble downloading SegaCD manuals larger than about 16Mb. What seems to be happening is that after an hour, downloads timeout even if they aren't finished. This timeout is a problem because download speeds from the site (even with a direct internet connection/T1 line) are quite slow, even at off hours of the day.
When I attempt to use a non-agressive download utility to simply use the feature of continuing downloading where I left off I am told that this feature is blocked by the site.
Specifically, I was able to get the following:
but have failed on many attempts to get:
Shining Force CD
Snatcher, Cyberpunk Adventure
I've also noticed that the resolution I select (the default or 300)doesn't have an affect on file size.
Also it is interesting to note that when I've tried, I have been sucessful in viewing the manuals with the website viewer and pages load in a matter of seconds.
What can I do to Download these 3 manuals specifically and a few others that I am also interested in?
