So how about some statistics now?


Recommended Posts

Hey, I was wondering approximately how often the dark mod has been downloaded so far. The updater didn't work for me, because of too many people downloading, which was why I used the torrent. The number of peers active on the torrent still varies between 30 and 100 depending on the time of day, so I assume your download servers are still at full load. Are there some statistics?

 

This wish also raised a general question in my mind: Is there any way to see how much traffic went over a certain torrent? I am thinking that maybe the Trackers could store info like that... It would be really nice to find that out, because even I have seeded TDM with a rate of 10 now and I got a crappy connection here. So all together, there must have been a MASSIVE amount of TDM-torrent-traffic so far!!

We are at about 1500 downloads from our mirrors (estimated based on hit counts and mirror weighting, as we don't have access to all the logs). Add 600 from the torrent and a few dozen I guess from moddb, atomicgamer and other sites hosting the full ZIP.

Moddb is currently showing over 400 downloads since 10/17...

That moddb graph looks about 160 to me unless there. If so, that's a rough total of 1500 + 600 torrent + 160 moddb = 2260. Or is there some other download stat somewhere? Where's that 400 come from?

 

Each point on the graph is the daily total. The first day was 49 downloads:

The daily totals are as follows: 49 + 120 + 161 + 83 + 52 + 26  for a grand total of  491  :)

Moddb Download 670.

Mirrors 1645.

Torrent 715

Total 3030

 

"A hungry mob numbered more than 3000 gathered outside the gates. "Feed us! Feed us!" they cried, "More FMs!" The Dark Mod Team trembled inside, huddling around a lonely candle for warmth. Their one battered laptop rattled as a small frightened mapper, chained to his dungeon post, tapped away at an outdated installation of Dark Radiant. He glanced fearfully at a nearby well-thumbed calendar as their last candle flickered and died..."

 

What will happen next?

as the current stats @bloodgate.com, the traffic is climbing down. But perhaps some big gaming news site or gaming mag will pick it up? :)

We can expect all the downloads in the first week are the 'big surge' and not expected to continue. What matters is the continuing level day after day over the years. For example, just 10 a day is 3650 more a year.
