Is it shit? Are there better options?
Is it shit? Are there better options?
It's a tracker, and it does that just fine. It also links you to (generally) the best available torrents for different series.
As far as the community goes, who gives a shit, why would you even make an account.
BakaBT is okay, but due to the fact that it folds to DMCA it's lacking some content. The best way is to use all sites and method to complement each other, so you don't have to rely on any single site or service. You should get an AB account and know how to use XDCC.
Can a nigga get an invite? Applications are closed
This is the Holy Truth of the Lord, Himself.
Nyaa: Has mostly everything, but not everything has good seeds.
BakaBT: Good seeds for things Nyaa doesn't have seeds for with the drawback of not having anything by certain companies.
AnimeBytes: Anything and everything one could possibly need and good seeds with the drawback of being a private tracker.
XDCC: Seasonal stuff without having to worry about seeds.
It would be great if there were just a single place, but it's great how they all have some benefit over the other that warrants all of them to be used.
Not when you post shit from Facebook.
why would you make an account
You can still somehow freeleech without a private key?
Sorry I still use Facespace
Since I don't watch airing anime, I use AB almost exclusively.
As of last month, yes, they had public torrents. Just can't search their site directly.
As of last month
As of always. You've literally always been able to DL the torrents without an account.
It's illegal and wrong. Don't be a pirate.
Make an account
Search for title
Paste&Go the URL
download the torrent
google "[series] bakabt"
open link and DL
Sometimes I like to browse titles before downloading.
I have no idea what this means. Its not like it opens directly into a save file, you still get all the series information, and you can click the alternative torrent link pages. It's literally what you posted but without all the retarded steps.
Browse titles. (s), multiple.
As in go through and just look at different series before downloading something.
That's fine if you know exactly what you want to download.
I simply meant I wasn't sure, since I hadn't used it since then. I remember some years ago they blacklisted a few client versions and people mistakenly panicked.
You don't need to use BBT to do that. You can even use fucking MAL.
Sure, you can. Does it really matter where you do it? I do it on AB.
Keep defending your inefficient method all you like, and people will mock you for it all they like.
I do it on AB.
Yes, and? Unlike AB, you don't need to sign in to use BBT at all. Which was the original point.
I don't see why you're so aggressive over this. I didn't even post the method originally, I was just stating why someone would browse the website instead of using the Google method.
I haven't used BBT in years, it's a garbage website and there is literally no reason to use it at all.
Welcome to Sup Forums.
I was just stating why someone would browse the website instead of using the Google method.
Re-read this bit
Keep defending your inefficient method all you like, and people will mock you for it all they like.
There isn't really a difference of doing it on BakaBT or doing it on MAL, except doing it on BakaBT gives you the URL and you don't have to use two websites.
That actually didn't work for some period in the last like month or so, as they requiered some pass in order to use the tracker from client, but I guess things are back to normal now.
Bakabt has nice descriptions, most of the time. That alone has value in my book. They could drop the whole tracker and only have links to other trackers and it'd still be worth having.
It also links you to (generally) the best available torrents for different series.
Your only other available option is AB, but good luck getting an account.
tfw got lucky years ago with some random user giving out an invite
Really glad too, easily the best place for anime.
Is there seriously people who have troubles getting a AB account? My application was basically just a giant shitpost and I got in.
Make an account so you can access the search. Open every link in private browsing mode. It's the only way to use Bakabt unless you're a serious uploader and have something to contribute. Otherwise you're wasting your time worrying about keeping a good ratio.
Animebytes has great collages of all the shit bakabt doesn't have due to pussying out to the DMCA. That's where having an account with them comes in handy.
Post it faggot.
Post decently and they'll get you in. AB isn't much hard compared to other private trackers.
Yes, but fuck off with your shitty recommendation thread.
i got to mangapark.com and save each page individualy
Just watch manga on youtube you fucking retard.
I use everything.
all these cucks without an AB account
people still aren't on KM
i'll never understand this
Can I use your everything
Wow I'm shocked
lurk for 2 years before posting
Can somebody invite me over animebyte?
Trips confirm it.
But newfag question here. How much of a pain is it to be part of AnimeBytes's private community? If I wanted to join would I have to actively particpate in stuff on their website?
Its page shows that applications are currently closed
KM invites exist
also doesn't U2 have a shitload of BDs/DVDISOs?
not getting invited by fellow /a/nons.
Is there any place shittier than MAL?
normies can't enjoy cartoons apparently
thanks Sup Forums
Ask an user that's been warned for the past few years anything
That's when i got warned. ever since then ive logged in, then logged out and used public traffic to get em all
ive added over 1TB to that number since
So what does an user have to do to get an ab invite?
Prove to me you'll actually download anime and maintain a good ratio.
Fuck off to /r9k/
get invited to AB by an user here years ago
gets sent a message after a year later saying im the highest uploader out of everyone he sent an invite to
feels good man
Animetosho is good for latest and also DDL.
Otherwise nyaa, u2, ab.
Does u2 have invites?
give the succ
not that user, but by prove, you mean by proving my ratio on other (private) trackers?
Yes. If you have no experience, you can try your statistics in your torrent program.
Either way it's too risky to give out invites without some kind of proof you're not a filthy leech.
I've never seeded in my life, however if it is for the sake of (hang on, they have music and concerts and that kind of stuff on there too right?) the poorly seeded and hard to find Nyaruko music among a few others that I crave so badly, I was gladly give you a good 1.00+ ratio. I have 300gigs monthly bandwidth so that isn't the issue.
I'm also far too new to understand how to get around your private seeding like that other user was saying, so I wouldn't fuck you guys over there either.
Rarely seem to connect with leechers
Raw ratio is incredibly low
Still have a great regular ratio because so many things are freeleech
Hey I guess if leechers don't often connect to me I'm not really needed anyway.
Sounds like you should get what.cd more than AB.
He'd probably need Jpopsuki (I'm not on there so dunno if it's shit or good. )
I was worried when it wasn't working last month. Glad the old method works well again.
i have a 4.00+ ratio on audionews, if that's worth something. i also have a what account (but that's in much worse shape because i was invited back before i learned good torrenting practices). i can back these up with screenshots if necessary
xdcc is basically someone hosting with vps, right? I'm impressed they can afford hosting dem huge packlists.
could also be a home connection. wouldn't be unheard of, some anons have their own sites hosted themselves
Maybe yeah. I don't have either since I'm not hugely in to music.
Invite me pls
I swear my ratio wont go down below 0.03
It's common to use botnets to serve packlists. However it's extremely unlikely for HS to use botnets given how much animebytes yen they give out weekly.
using a private tracker
I see the AB shills are out full force tonight.
search Sup Forums on animebytes
49 pages of mentions
What's the population of AB?
The majority of people would only logon and download shit.
I use ab to look for versions and then google them
People there have SHIT internet, I'm in the top 10 of uploaders just having a 500/500 FTTH and casually seeding some stuff
Post your Steam and I'll send you one. I have 4 invites left.
Anyone know where to torrent albums of Japanese artists? Can't seem to find a seeded Tomoko Kawase discog. Yes, I checked Nyaa and AB.
If I wanted to join would I have to actively particpate in stuff on their website?
People come and download shit. You don't need to post at all.
Question for people with an AB account.
Since it says they also focus on japanese music, do they have Movie and Drama OSTs? I've never been able to find a good source for that stuff.
Have you tried Perfect Dark?
I have 3 invites on AB.
mfw people think BakaBT and Nyaa has everything
You're missing out so much.
Bitch please, ab just reupload content from nyaa, 99% of the anime there is a fucking reupload
Who cares if there are reuploads when AB is the only place with a good amount of seeders?
not using facebook
you live under a cave or something? no friends?
Yeah 15kb/s seeders, I'm that 500/500 guy and I NEVER got a torrent downloading/uploading over 1/3 of my connection there
Seriously, ab is nice because it have the stuff organized and shit but its 100% unnecessary and it have 0 exclusive content so stop trying to be elitist trash when you are on one of the easiest private trackers there is
ab is nice because it have the stuff organized
This is the only reason to use AB over Nyaa
The only reason to use BakaBT over AB it's that it doesn't have a lot of stuff nowadays
re-readthey all have some benefit over the other that warrants all of them to be used
0 exclusive content
Watch more anime beyond current seasons.
and it have 0 exclusive content
If you take the exact definition of "exclusive content". AB actually has 66 of them you retard.
BakaBT over AB
AB over BakaBT
rutracker, they have 98% of the stuff of what.cd, another useless elitist memetracker I rarely sue anymore
I used to use that, but I changed ISPs like 2 years ago and now I can't make it work for some reason. Can't even load the anime gril when you open it up, just draws blank for me.
You lost me
Coolio, lemme try this one.
You have a up to 2015 torrent too
So, how much more spoonfeeding do you need?
I don't need any. If you read my post, I said I already checked A-B. No seeds whatsoever on The Brilliant Green and february 6. But thanks.
2 hours played
I don't have time for this shit.
My backlog won't reduce itself.
Try What. Not everything is seeded and it's hard to make ratio but it generally has the best retention of any private tracker.
Now check again.
Rutracker have it, better and more seeded, fuck what meme
Does anyone remember when it was Box Torrents, and the faggot admins stole the site away from Box? Not that I care, but it was entertaining to see someone hijack an entire site because they were too stupid to ask him about how money was spent. A hilariously dick move.
not using rutracker, what, animebytes, kat, TPB, nyaa, bakabt, slsk, /mu/ archives, google and rippers together so you don't miss any music
According to musicbee I have a music backlog of 7 years, so fuck off
Does anyone know how long or when animebytes will next open applications? heard joining WCD getting to PU was the best option but i'd rather avoid that since i have no interest in music
Are you literally retarded?
What.cd ONLY have music
It's time to admit that you enjoy downloading more than you enjoy music. Shit taste doesn't even begin to cover it.
that is why is a backlog, fucktard, I delete like 99/100 of what I hear
You can use WCD to get into AB because they have recruitment threads. I did it that way because I was too lazy to fill in an application. All you need to do is send the recruiter a PM and wham you get an invite.
That's why i said i have no interest in joining WCD. What i said was from what i've heard get into what.cd become a power user then get recruited into animebytes from there.
If you don't have anything better to do, yeah
The AB application takes like 2 minutes, joining and getting ratio on what.shit could take months
Ah yes the needle in a haystack approach.
Post screencap of the other 1/100. I'm genuinely curious.
And what's your setup? I know this isn't /hpg/, but hey
What an assbackwards method. You're supposed to get in through AB first since that's the one easier to get into and much easier to hit PU and then use that to get into other trackers like WCD.
I have like 400+ hours and I got just one game.
fuck off dotard
Applications are closed, so from what i've heard that's the best method if you can't get invited directly. I would rather avoid that though
AB applications are currently closed though.
Tree of cute.
I hate mobas
I used WCD for music and to get into Bibliotik because I saw threads about it on /lit/. I saw the AB thread and thought, why not? So I guess I got into it along the way.
But usually AB applications are always open so it's weird that they're closed.
I'm surprised you lasted that long. The linear storyline and repetitive questing had me groaning when I reached 40. To each his own, I guess?
Still better option than through WCD since if you exclude open reg and invites, you have to get in through the interview which is an even bigger waste of time than writing app for AB. Also, WCD staffs are bigger autists than AB, especially when it comes to people getting invites through public sites.
WCD already doesn't have seeding bonus so hitting PU means actually having decent internet connections whereas some SEA fag or Strayan with shitty internet can coast by to PU easily.
Using WCD as a gateway to other trackers is probably one of the least efficient and most stupid method, especially since WCD is notorious for being one of the harder tracker to maintain.
XDCC: Seasonal stuff without having to worry about seeds
I usually use haruhichan for xdcc but what you say is pretty much the norm nowadays. I remember the irc days having to ctcp to people and queue up shit I wanted to download before I headed out to school. Torrents may have killed most of the irc communities but they have made everything simple.
I wonder how can I screencap this
I'm collecting and filtering music since 56kb internet, my "proper music" archive is big as fuck (pic)
Past year I started removing .ogg and under 96kbps trash from the early internet ages and replacing it with loseless, rutracker was a bless for that, what.cd only was necessary for ONE artist
880DT with some fiio
Autism and cuteness triggered me. I wanted a mage like Eva McDowell and so I went full retard questing and solo leveling until I got to warlock.
And yes, I'm a boring one. Goddesses are really stupid autist fucks, and for my surprise the tsundere one is the only one worthy.
It's recommended if you want to get into BTN or want to get music (and I don't mean /mu/'s easy to get memetier stuff). Unless you want to jump onto AHD route WCD makes a pretty big fuss about making their invite requirements very high. There are also some retards who can't find stuff to upload because they don't know what anime is.
But for Sup Forums animebytes is the best route because even the most idiotic /a/non knows where to get shit.
Nice. I myself have DT770's and some fiio's as well. Bass isn't that good but I mostly listen to math rock anyway.
All-time favorite artist?
Yeah i think i'm just going to wait till AB opens applications again.
Going the WCD method with interview just sounds like a hassle, maintaining a raito shouldn't be a problem as i have 94 down 23 up from NZ so i assume that should be good enough.
I'll send you a screenshot of my torrent program stats if it would make you feel better
XDCC is still quite good for books but for anime I find Nyaa, Baka, BTN or AB just easier in general.
College used to block the ports used for XDCC but you can change them around and still download. I torrent on college using a cheap server which doubles as a VPN.
I had the 770 and loved them but they died (physically) so I got the 880, I can't notice any difference at all, but they are both comfy as fuck
Epic post dude
even the most idiotic /a/non knows where to get shit
You overestimate things. Between /wsr/ being made and the increasingly more lax attitude towards spoonfeeding sources, quite a portion of posters here are worse than before.
Hell, ironically on AB. I've seen people who admit to browsing Sup Forums being the ones asking stupid shit that's been explained in the FAQ and being lost about many things while fucking redditors were doing shit like uploading official manga scans to AB and /a/'s precious FTP and generally not being clueless on the tracker.
even the most idiotic /a/non knows where to get shit
Were you here when Nyaa went down for a few days? /a/nons were flipping their shit because they had no idea where to go. Torrents have made people stupid.
Reddit probably made a guide for that
No, I meant a screencap of your mage. Did you reach endgame yet, and how is it? Any chances for a competitive scene?
Random comment, but I got a bit disappointed when I learned that it wasn't like RO at all, which is my all-time favorite. You played it too?
Yes, and they had the sense to read and follow the guide. Because again, as I said, there are Sup Forums posters on there who can't even fucking read the FAQ and needs people to tell them.
No there are guides everywhere and they might just be familiar with private trackers and/or use seedboxes so they don't even need to bother finding a significant amount of stuff to upload. Also there are a lot of people who cross-site.
That is some weird, obscure stuff holy shit.
Eh, honestly I feel like M50x's are still the comfiest cans I've tried to date. I still have em for when I listen to
Have any mainstream genres you like?
even the most idiotic /a/non knows where to get shit.
Looking at some of the shit in sad panda threads, threads that got derailed due to hissy fits due being unable to find source, I highly disagree. Also
In the context of my post, that just further proves my point about how fucking stupid some parts of Sup Forums is.
Seeing this thread made me remember hanging out in mIRC waiting for a show to be released and seeing the triggers spam the channel as the show was released.
You can auto download shows either by RSS or by using the IRC if you're running rtorrent on linux.
Anyone got a spare invite to AB? Their registration is closed for who knows how long.
I was just remembering the good ol days. Back in like 2002 when digital fansubs were starting to take off. I can't even remember if torrents existed back then.
For some reason when I try to log it pops up an error windows and the game goes down. The game is full of bugs, but then again, it's open beta.
Then again, I'm always shoutshitposting, so... I don't know.
I was going to do some guild, was leveling a swordie to Templar. I don't know anything about competitive, I just want to kick some latin guilds asses.
I played RO, mostly kRO. Most of my friends grew up and have childrens now so I'm alone on this. While I liked RO, I feel ToS gives me way more liberties to do stupid shit, if they release soon R8-R10 and the 500-600 lvl cap, this game is going to be a killer. But I'm really tired of the "I'm a RO veteran player", like if that means anything.
It could be too long since I really don't look at the genre but the music itself, but I can tell you which "genres" I loathe
pop/rap and everything that sounds like it/whatever genre is the stuff you have in the youtube tops and basically what the people that use youtube to play music hear, I guess
And is not a matter of being muh snowflake, I can't stand that kind of music since forever, I used to have a walkman with scatman while kids around the school had the backstreet boys
Man I wish I'd found IRC and fansubs earlier.
I didn't mean to sound like that guy, but considering the hype around the developers of ToS being the same as RO's, not really surprising if a lot of people would expect the same as me. Guess I shouldn't have had high expectations.
And you feel more free in ToS? Low-levels like me are stuck in the shitty storyline killing 10 Vubbes or whatever, and it's not looking to end anytime soon. While I hate grinding in general, forcing upon people quests isn't a good idea, I think.
Maybe I just hate mmorpgs lol
invited a bunch of people from Sup Forums to AB
they all went inactive
Yeah not inviting anyone from here again.
emule/irc releases of fansubs era
.rm video and horrid yellow subs translated by a first year japanese student that could make duwang look like a nobel
No thanks, only people that had yet to born at that point could "miss" it
It was loads of fun. Back when Gundam Seed got licensed a rep from Bandai come into Ani-Kraze's channel and basically told them to stop fansubbing Gundam Seed or Bandai would sue them. All sorts of crazy ass drama all happened within those irc channels. AnimeJunkies told off an Urban Vision rep when they decided to not stop fansubbing the Ninja Scroll TV series. Good times.
You expect anyone to use AB beyond torrents?
Damn, ANN still has that article.
Don't be like that
DT770 mids are non existant. Vocals sound sucked out.
Post your anime list.
Give me a review on the M50x's that one guy mentioned
I have 5 invites left
Post mail/steam acc and a speedtest
BASS BASS BASS BASS
So you have them or you heard it in leadiophilistelite.net?
Because I had a lot of them and 770 with proper equal and amp have flawless mids
I may consider inviting people if people post anime lists (any format) and disposable email.
They are a forced meme
AB started to monitor invited people don't do it
Well yeah that's animebytes. Being a private tracker isn't really a downside and you can get in prett easily.
Remember when Sup Forums would laugh at people asking for source? Remember when 5 different retards wouldn't fall over themselves explaining to utter retards how to get into an entrylevel private tracker?
It wasn't even that many years ago.
Auditioned. DT770 are v-shape incarnate.
proper equal and amp
Are you trying to say "x doesn't sound like x because I used EQ"
I'm on my phone though.
Would you rather have this or someone talking about what shows they watch using Crunchyroll™ and Netflix™?
Pick a poison.
They sound okay to me. That's coming from someone who only has had an M50x, 598's and 770's though, so can't say much. They sound way better than the first two though, but I rarely use them for anything other than math rock.
Good choice to get into decent headphones. Comfy as fuck (honestly, can wear them all day), bass (perfect for someone who likes rap, like me) but no soundstage at all. Good stuff though, dirt cheap too.
the easiest private tracker
What's the difference to hard ones?
Take it to /g/catalog#s=hpg boys
what shows they watch using Crunchyroll™ and Netflix™
They should leave.
What does this mean
I think you meant /ptg/
audiophile buzzword, doesn't really mean anything. they say it has something to do with "depth" but it's actually just placebo.
Read the past few posts
Did anyone else lost it's Baka BT account recently due to their bullshit e-mails never arriving ever?
And not being able to log in in any way
what you need when playing csgo.
Good thing I only play fighters
did bakabt fix the free account leech
or do you still have to do the login/logout?
actually making a bakabt account
you don`t need anything else
You can still do it, i just copy the url from one browser then paste into another that's not logged in.
maybe if you have literally no taste
they have the same problem: lots of old and/or obscure stuff isn't seeded or never even existed
Hey it was YEARS ago, just for the easy browsing. I don't care about it but man I did seed unseeded torrents once in a while over the years
I seeded NANA a lot
I don't really care much about soundstage/headstage but I have tried enough to know that a HD800 sounds wider than a Portapro.
How do you explain this? Is it a frequency response thing?
someone requests something obscure you have
seed it for them so they can pass it on to others
sometimes it feels good. it's the closest thing to sharing dvd/vhs nowadays
im always download files with "free leech" on AB
because i cant seed anything on AB
there's nobody downloading
how the fuck can i seed if there nobody on AB?
this shit never works on me ,its freeze my PC
Good thing we're in the make Sup Forums great again era.
Meanwhile there are still anons who can't into FTP and sad panda and can't even google the guides.
i got 5 H&R
cant seed either nobody's downloading
Whether or not anyone's donloading is irrelevant. Just let the torrents run a couple days and your H&R will get cleared.
Those are called newfags and should be told to lurk the fuck more.
Stop helping these people, you fuck. Part of the purpose of private trackers is to weed out the retards.
By the looks of it, he's deleted the torrents and since he's too retarded to understand how it works in the first place, no matter how much help he gets, he's still fucked anyway. Can't help those who can't even help themselves.
Impossible when they give you invites to hand out.
Anyone giving out invites?
