Hi all, I created a torrent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.torrent) for you. Here is the link: http://www.lanman2.xail.net/files/software/torrents/TRUDemo.torrent.
If the link is not working, please use this instead: http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/302102/TRUDemo.torrent
The torrent is working 100%.

Happy downloading and SEED the torrent please, keep the torrent alive! :)

After downloading, run setup.exe in the "TRUDemo" folder.

Keep in mind that your client has to support DHT.

I would also be pleased, if you could post your download speed.

Please don't beat me for creating a new thread!

EDIT: Corrected wrong link :mad2:

I created the torrent from my working extracted trudemopc.exe (http://eidos.http.internapcdn.net/eidos_vitalstream_com/tru/trudemopc.exe, the official download link) :thumbsup:. I (already) installed (and played) the demo successfully.
My torrent works 100%, I have 9 peers and more downloading it.

what's a torrent?

Cyrus
31st Oct 2008, 19:01
A .torrent, is a file extension used by a BitTorrent client or other peer-to-peer programs that use the BitTorrent protocol.

Only you have to do is use a bittorrent client open the file (.torrent) and it starts to download it.

Hi, I might sound stupid asking this but what is a torrent? I know someone already asked this, but im only 14 and have no idea what you said in your response :nut: BAsicly like what is the difference between this one, and the one put up at Tombraider.com? :confused:

Cyrus
1st Nov 2008, 15:35
Ok, let me explain.

You can make a download in different ways:

By HTTP (is protocol so you can see this webpage)
By FTP (in this case you make a download directly from a FTP server)
And in this case by Bittorrent (is a protocol), where you use a file .torrent to download several parts from the demo. It means that you make the download from several PC's that already have the file or part of them. The .torrent only tells you where you can find the file.

So the difference is in the way that you make the download.

BitTorrent features CRC, meaning that the files you download CANNOT be corrupted... It will work definitively or your hard drive is defective...

Sorry! :D "BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing protocol used to distribute large amounts of data. The initial distributor of the complete file or collection acts as the first seed. Each peer who downloads the data also uploads them to other peers." (Wikipedia). It also features CRC, meaning that the files you download CANNOT be corrupt or you have a bad disk :D.
