4. Playback issues/Technical


1. General
1. Who are you?
Check the profile page.

2. What's the best way to contact you?
DO NOT BE LAME BY CONTACTING US FOR QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN THIS FAQ.
Primary: splash - E-mail, hanjie - E-mail
Secondary: You can find some of us on IRC, #ryuu-rogue @ irc.rizon.net
For the others... they're pirates and ninjas! Any other contact info is available through the staff listing on the profile page.

3. I would like to help out your fansubbing group! What can I do?


-Donations are always welcome! Donation info is here!
-Distro help is also welcome. BT seeding is what we would appreciate most! Also, boo on streaming sites that steal our subs. You are not supporting the actual fansubbers if you get the releases from any place we have not linked.
-We are continuously looking for reliable TS cappers for Inazuma Eleven/Danball Senki who can cap from channels such as TV Tokyo and BS Japan.
-splash is accepting experienced timers for current and ongoing projects! TPP experience preferred but efficiency and schedule availability take priority.

4. Why can't I access this post from your journal that someone linked me?
Some things posted here are only available to community members, so please join and have fun with us!

5. How do you guys fansub?
We add subtitles to videos using Aegisub, which in my opinion has a good manual built right into the help section. Any further questions, you can Google answers to. If this isn't enough for you, then you have deeper problems to deal with before you can start fansubbing. :P

6. I've been "banned" from the IRC chan but I haven't done anything!
I had to blanket ban a certain set of IPs because of certain losers, so you can blame them. Only solution I'll say for now is to register your nick and get a hostmask. Note you can get k-lined (banned off the entire Rizon server) for abusing hostmasks, so use with respect.


2. About Our Releases
1. When are you going to release the next episode of xx??!?!?!
When it gets released. D: Priority goes into projects that haven't been subbed in some form or another yet. Asking only makes us less motivated. Just wait, for crikes sake.
There may be updates on our Twitter account and progress threads on DVD projects on our forums for your curiosity.

2. Are you guys going to fansub xx??!?!?!
ASSUME NO.
It's up to us. Unless it's something we've already considered doing at this point, chances are close to 0% that we'll do it. Don't bother asking "ARE YOU GOING TO SUB xx?" because it's either yes or no and you should know the answer deep in your heart. Go do something better with your life than bothering us. You can also see our "future" projects listed under Current Projects on our profile page.

3. You haven't released xx in so long! Have you dropped the project?
If it doesn't say it's dropped in our profile (under the "completed" section), it's not dropped.

4. I am interested in fansubbing xx DVD into ___ language for my fansub group. Can you give us your DVD source?
Please buy the original DVDs like we did and support the original creators!! (This is where 99% of people drop the subject)

5. I am interested in fansubbing xx HD into ___ language for my fansub group. Can you give us your HD RAW source?
All of our HD releases are softsub (except for some karaoke and the logo which is to STAY on the encode as credits) so they can be used as raws if needed. Sorry, but we don't keep any other kinds of "raws".

6. I am interested in fansubbing xx into ___ language for my fansub group. Can we use your subs?
Credit to ryuu_rogue with a link to the site would be appreciated. Other than that, it's not like we can stop you from doing so anyway.

7. Can I upload your releases to streaming sites (such as Youtube, Veoh, etc)?
We really prefer that you don't, but not like that's going to stop bastards anyway. Upload at your own risk.

8. Can I submit your releases/torrents to other listing sites (such as TokyoTosho, NyaaTorrents, BakaBT)?
TokyoTosho = No. Torrents are to be listed under Splash only
NyaaTorrents = No, but for specific series only. Torrents are to be listed under RyuuRogue only
BakaBT = Please let me know if you want to put our releases up so I can look over the information ASAP. Also, include a link to the original release post on this LiveJournal in the description.
Other sites are at your own risk.


3. Getting Our Releases
1. How do I download your files?
Our releases are currently available on bittorrent (BT), XDCC bots on IRC, and direct download.
-For BT, you need a downloading client that supports the protocol. We recommend utorrent for Windows users, Transmission for other OSes. Google if you need to learn how to use bittorrents. Ryuu-Rogue's bittorrent tracker is at http://ryuu-rogue.edwardk.info/
-For our XDCC bots, you will need an IRC client that supports the protocol. Follow this guide. Instead of mIRC, I personally recommend Sysreset, which is a more user-friendly version of the original mIRC. For an extra guide on using XDCC bot commands "How to download from an XDCC". XDCC bot packlists can be found under the Navigation section of the main page. All of our XDCC bots start with RyRo in their usernames, such as RyRo|Endou_Mamoru. Java scripts like Mibbit support only chat options. XDCC will not work with them. Use a real IRC client to download. Our IRC chan is #ryuu-rogue @ irc.rizon.net . If you find yourself banned for no reason, please see question 6 in the General section.
-For direct downloads, you'll need downloading permission from orz media shares. Instructions on the site. Unfortunately, orz media shares was forced to be shut down in late 2014.
-Special page for Inazuma Eleven which is basically this FAQs info and more.

2. Can you reseed xx torrent?
First make sure you have the latest torrent off our BT Tracker. If the episode is part of a batch torrent, use the batch. For the most part, we will not be able to fulfill seed requests personally, so don't count on it. If you ask in the IRC channel, there may be a chance that someone will generously be able to provide a seed... but don't count on it.
Our archives are better maintained on our XDCC bots and orz media shares.
For some batch torrents (ex: Digimon Adventure), you will find them better seeded on BakaBT.

4. Playback issues/Technical
1. Why are the subtitles not showing up on the softsubs (mkv)?
Refer to the next question:

2. What do you recommend for file playback?
2 things: the latest codecs for file playback, and a good video player.
To get these:
Windows Vista and above: KCP.
For Windows XP and below: CCCP.

For video player--on Windows, use Media Player Classic (mpc). This is included in KCP & CCCP.
On anything that isn't Windows, mplayer (OSX Extended for Mac, SVN revision for Linux).

If you have playback problems on anything outside of these recommendations (especially VLC, we hate it), then learn already. +w+
Known issues:
-Uninstalling all of your playback components and then installing only the recommended components solves most problems.
-Ordered chapters will not work for systems outside Windows. The opening for Onmyou Taisenki DVD will need to be played separately.

3. What's the difference between the AVI/XviD and MKV/h264 (or x264)? What about MP4/h264?
-AVI/XviD releases are intended for people on extremely low-end computers who do not have the processing power for anything better. They are hardsubbed.
-h264 releases have about 33% better compression than XviD, thus producing better quality videos. However, h264 playback requires more processing power than XviD.
-Our MKV releases are softsubbed (except for most karaoke and certain typesets), meaning you can turn the subs on and off as you please, as well as adjust the display font and make other customizations.
-Our MP4 releases are hardsubbed, but otherwise function similarly to mkv and are also compatible with certain systems such as the Playstation3. Additional note: Legendz MP4 is not compatible with the Playstation3 unless you use a media server, because the audio is mp3 and PS3 is very picky about the audio container.

4. Will you release xx in AVI/XviD format or low-resolution?
As of 2010 (or maybe earlier), we've stopped encoding official AVI/XviD releases and providing any support for them. Support includes playback and distribution methods such as BT seeding. Any that you see are either encoded by non-staff or from sources outside of ryuu_rogue (ex: the OkashiiSubs joint for Inazuma Eleven). There are many reasons why we've stopped doing AVI/XviD (1 2, more if you google), and you're always free to encode your own conversions for personal use (Programs like MiniCoder and HandBrake for low-res currently recommended, find one that you like and works for you).
The same applies with low-resolution releases, unless low-resolution is the only source we have available.

5. Will you encode in 10-bit?
We aren't bothering for the most part. I'm not spending the money and time to make it worth the time, unless you want to donate that much.
Also, with the tests we've tried thus far, there is no significant improvement with 10-bit Inazuma Eleven. Certainly not worth the compatibility loss, the increased encoding time, and the extra stress on computer processing power.
Danball Senki is done in 10-bit since it benefits the compression. Digimon benefits from the compression as well.
Bottom line = I'd rather wait for x265.

Just what the subject line says heh. I've been around for a ton of them since about episode 4 of legendz i think it was. There's alot of frequently asked questions that get frequently asked frequently : )

I will say that me personally have gone with the most recent vlc player .9.8a in order to play the mp4s. they do load up faster on that for me, but i can't quite say I've got any system older than a year, but it is a toshiba laptop if that helps any to describe how it seems to work for me. It has alot less lag than any other player though as far as i've been able to tell.

all in all as far as these comments posted to spark these comments others make, patience is key, and these guys are great : )

Hey, I poked around a bit and I was wondering if the Pokemon first movie sub is available via your iRC channel? Or if someone happened to post a DDL link for it in the past if it could be pointed out to me? I took a peek at the orz site, but judging from what I saw clicking about in the menu, it's no longer available there. (Unless I'm just stupid and missed it somehow)

I'm wanting to watch it, but not only can I not use bittorrent (It's not that I don't know how, it's banned in my household), I'm sure it's been a long time since it's been seeded since it's an old release.

Sorry if this is inappropriate in any way, and thanks very much for the time. =)

Hi! First of all, thanks for the awesome subbing work on Digimon Adventure.

Now, onto my question: Which font did you use for the subs on said show? Thanks in advance.

Just out of curiosity, how do you distribute the work between all of you?
Like right now, you have three new active projects (not counting Adventure, 'cause v1 is already completed) and three translators. Do each of you translate one? Or do you all kinda just team up with your super powers together, or just trade off?

LOL

Depends on our personal interests of course. For the most part, nezucho has done all of Legendz with help from people here and there, most of digimon is done by onkei_kun (only exception is x-evo which I did), I'm pretty much exclusively doing Onmyou Taisenki, and then onkei and I are currently splitting off Inazuma Eleven by even (me) and odd (onkei) eps right now. It's our first time splitting it up like that and it's pretty fun so far~ XD;

The main deal is just everything in ryuu_rogue goes through me at one point or another, it's just how it happens to be since I'm pretty experienced with all aspects of the process XD; The others are pretty experienced too now so it really helps things move :)

There are no plans to release Inazuma Eleven in SD, and like xvid/avi you are free to encode your own personal versions if you need them.

I'd like to know what do you think about subbing older anime...?

"Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!!" is a series from the late 90's about mini 4WD racing cars.
Although it is your typical merchandise-geared anime, it is full of silly comedy and has lots of characters (potential pairings included), similar to some series Ryuu Rogue do/did subs for.

Unfortunately TLing the games would be too much *EFFORT* unless you want to hook me up with someone GOOD who knows how to do all the computer work side of extracting the necessary work files, patching and such. I know some basics about it but not enough to get me going on a dedicated project for it.

The English names make me sad too though, so I understand that feeling. ^^; What makes me saddest is I think that "localizing" aspect is what is taking the games SO FREAKING LONG to come over, when I personally think they shouldn't even use that much *EFFORT*, but blah.

Excuse me if I missed something somewhere, but I looked and couldn't find anything, so...
Where can I get sub files for the Digimon Adventure DVD rips posted on your tracker? And is there any way I can integrate them (for lack of better word) into the files? (I hate having all these extra files lying around if I can help it.)

Did you download the Digimon Adventure Complete Series DVD-Rips [DS-RAWS] from the tracker? That was hosted for a friend and isn't categorized under our releases if you hadn't noticed. Because we have our subbed version labeled with RyRo on the tracker. Get that for the subs.

What software do you use to put subs?

from: Needs to get an LJ
date: Apr. 29th, 2011 06:34 am (UTC)
Link

Hello, Ryuu-Rogue.

I just wanted to ask this: what software do you use to put subtitles on the episodes (like on Digimon Adventure). I've tried using Windows Movie Maker and Subtitle Workshop, but I can't do some of the things you do with your subtitles. For instance, I can't make 3 different subtitles appear in different places at the same time (I saw this happen in your subs when there's a scene with a dialogue and background music. There's one sub in the bottom center for the dialogue, one on the upper left for the Japanese lyrics, and another one on the upper left for the English lyrics). I also can't do the effects you did with Digimon Adventure's second closing theme, where the lyrics had a sort of "karaoke effect". I hope you can help me. I just need the name of the software.

Thanks,
JR

so, i was thinking that i could sub the episodes, update an external sub archive and link the original subbed episode from you to download, in every post... (of course i will credit you, or do nothing if you say no)... lol this sounded weird

Just wanted to know if you guys have any plans to do Inazuma Eleven in Dual Audio. Having watched a number of episodes in the English dub, I have kinda grown to like it as well. Not saying your subs aren't awesome. Just that if there's anyone doing dual audio for this, I'd like it to be you guys. I know you guys don't usually do dual audio but yea.. Anyway, thanks for the great work so far :D
