TDM Collection DVD

Recommended Posts

I was looking at my gamecollection closet.

And noticed that i dont have a gamedisc for TDM.

I want to create one.

So People can add this dvd in their collection and use it like a backup.

 

So I created a data collection.

I hope you can help me to create this object.

The only things are missing is a cover for jewelcase and your opinions.

Let me know what your think about this one.

 

You can find a list of the collection in the spoiler

 

 

 

 Volume in drive D is Data
 Volume Serial Number is 7E06-7A85

7.9 GB? Might as well kick it past DVD-9 straight to 25 GB Blu-ray and throw all the current FMs on there.

Is the intention that the DVD will be burned/stamped and then sent to people by post (perhaps to get around low bandwidth limits in certain parts of the world), or just made available as an ISO image for download?

 

If it's the latter, I suspect many people will wonder what benefit it provides over directly downloading the specific things you are interested in and then burning them to whatever backup medium you find most comfortable (which might be an optical disk, USB stick or some kind of network-attached storage). Although I personally like optical media for backup, it doesn't seem to be all that popular these days, and if you're going to download an ISO just to extract files from it manually, surely you might as well just download the mod in the usual way?

 

On the other hand, having the DVD commercially produced and then sent to people who might be living in areas with low internet bandwidth might be greatly appreciated by those users, but I have no idea what the costs involved would be (I seem to recall Ubuntu used to offer such disks, but I don't think they are offering them any more).

For starters, i was thinking about an dvd iso (4,7 gb) so everybody caan download and burn it them selfs.

and a artwork for the jewelcase that people can print themself.

 

going to delete the 2.07 standalone package (3gb) and replace it with some nice missions.

but which ones?

It might be cool if someone made some good box art. In my younger days I might have even printed it out on cardboard stock and made my own box, in addition to jewelbox and CD art, but these days I'd be content with just having an image of it in my TDM fodder folder.

I recommend using hard disks as backup medium. They are more cost efficient and a lot faster than DVDs.

Just rember to always have at least two backups and copy the backups once per year from one medium to another to keep the data from fading away (both are good advice for backups on any medium, not only hard disks).

I succesfully downloaded the content of our wiki, using wget. (including working offline links)

wget -k -p -r -R '*Special*' -R '*Help*' -E http://wiki.thedarkmod.com
After a wait of 4 hours, its downloaded in a folder with 1,17 GB as foldersize.(and zipped its 760 mb)

When all the files are downloaded, the startpage is "index.php@title=Main_Page.html.html"

Left: Clock is nice and bright, text harder to read, URL is jarring.

Right: Clock aspect ratio is squashed, should be circular, but the text is easier to read and there is no URL over the logo. Clock is dim.
