hi
we don't think it's a good solution

- most don't keep their bt client running after downloading files
just download and quit

- at the moment download traffic is in our limits

- download rate with bt depends on how many will run bt

- we don't want to force people to use bt

but maybe you could host the .torrent files as an alternative to normal http-downloads? or would this be too much work? i've never made a .torrent, so I don't know. also i never hosted .torrent as a tracker.
but i think the idea of using torrents is quite good.

I think, it it would be a good idea to make the cedega games installer available with torrent while they aren't online. ;)

If you already have a copy of an installer, and want to be very generous and seed it for others:
- create a torrent for the installer file. Use 'http://liflg.matrixau.com:2710/announce' as the announce url.
- email the .torrent file to me - mayhem@liflg.matrixau.com. I will add it to the tracker.
- seed the completed file for others.

It would be great if Linux gamers can help each other out by sharing files this way. You can email me or perhaps catch me on IRC if you have questions about liflg torrents.

Hi,

I have the german DVD installer but I need the UK-DVD Version (can't download)

Could somebody of you up or seed it, please?

I am seeding the UK DVD installer already. Could you make a torrent for the german one, email it to me, then seed the file as described above?

just a question
doesn't the installation work with cedega or wine or why you need the installer?

I haven't tried it myself, but according to the unofficial Cedega wiki the windows installer for Far Cry doesn't work. They recommend using the liflg one :)
