How to add groups under the anime

Post by tigerstyle » Sun Oct 22, 2006 4:52 pm

Hello I was wondering if there was a way that I could add a group under a specific anime that they have or are encoding. Or put the anime up under the group name. I don't know which one i have to do but I can't seem to figure it out. I have tryed all morning and this was my last resort hope somebody can help.

Thanks

to "add groups for an anime" you will have to add the files they released. the groupinfo bit is generated automatically based on that data.

I tryed to follow that guide but there is not a button under the action columb. I spent 15 min looking for it or so but can't seem to find something like that on any of the animes. So is it my browser or something along that lines not being able to see it or is it realy not there?

It was something as stupid of me as not logging in lol. But I figured it out even though I still can't put the episode up becasue it says it is too big. BTW how big can it be and still beable to be added 2GIGs and under or something becasue mine is about 2.04 gigs and it says that it can't be added.


Thank you for your help.

the max size is 32bit signed integer. hence 31 bit are useable.
2^31= 2048MB = 2GB flat

hence your file is ,04Gb too big :P

chnage the filesize to 2.000.000.000 byte in anidb and add a filecomment about the real size.

it's a known limitation and for the moment there won'tbe any change regarding this. in the long term this will change.

Thanks it worked I just got one more question for you if you don't mind.

Does it take a few minutes for it to show up under the show that the group did it and under the group release section??

thanks

as you forgot to add the groupid when you added it to anidb the db didn't catch the group for the groupinfo box. editing it doesn't reinitialize that process. you will have to wait for the cronjob to run to fix that.
