    Dolphin "Classic" Games Part 6 [Jets "Spike" Game]






    12/22/96 -- Miami Dolphins 31, at N.Y. Jets 28


    Description: Last game of the '96 season

    for these bitter rivals.Not really a Classic as both teams were out of the Playoffs but great to watch for Dolphin and Marino fans.Any win over the Jets is a good win.See Zach Thomas first season,OJ McDuffie,Keyshawn Johnson
    Wayne Chrevet,Kyle Brady,Jimmy Johnson.etc

    The file is 2.86 Gig size DVD format.The quality is very good (Better than the Spike game)










    Thanks to Max Power we are now sharing another Classic Dolphin Game




    11/27/94 -- Miami 28, Jets 24 at New York Jets
    Sometimes referred to as the "Spike" or "Clock" Game.
    It is in DVD Format and is 3.87 Gig in size.


    Note :We will offer a smaller 1.4 Meg version later on













    Please sign up at the site with your Finheaven screen name
    The site is not associated with Finheaven nor does Finheaven
    approve of these torrents.(Can these letters be any smaller?)


    Be sure to install a client (Program)before loading



    [Props To Celtkin]


    SEEDING
    To make these torrents work it is very important that you stay on seeding for at least 24 hrs after you have finished particularly if you have a high speed (BW) connection .

    As a bare minimum you should upload at least as much BW you have downloaded.



    ------------

    Its not a good idea to load to many torrents at the same time as our total bandwidth would be spread too thinly in order to do a good job of seeding.

    If you want to load one of our torrents we request that you sign up with your Finheaven screen name or at least let us know who you are,


    Next on our wish list are the following games (In no particular order);
    01/02/82 -- San Diego 41, at Miami 38 (ot) (the Epic in Miami)
    10/09/83 -- Buffalo 38, at Miami 35 (ot) (Marino comes off the bench)
    01/23/83 -- at Miami 14, N .Y. Jets 0 (Duhe!!)
    01/06/85 -- at Miami 45, Pittsburgh 28 (AFC Championship game)
    09/21/86 -- at N.Y. Jets 51, Miami 45 (ot) (Marino/OBrien shootout)
    09/04/94 -- at Miami 39, New England 35 (Marino returns)
    09/25/94 -- at Minnesota 38, Miami 35 (Marino/Moon shootout)
    12/31/94 -- at Miami 27, Kansas City 17 (Marino/Montana - Div. Playoffs)
    12/22/96 -- Miami 31, at N.Y. Jets 28
    09/06/98 -- Miami 24, Indianapolis 15 (Manning’s first game)
    12/21/98 -- at Miami 31, Denver 21 (Marino/Elway II)
    11/07/99 -- at Miami 17, Tennessee 0 (Madison 3 INTs)
    09/17/00 -- at Miami 19, Baltimore 6 (rain, Marino’s # is retired)
    12/30/00 -- Miami 23,Indianapolis 17 (OT -Lamar Smith dominates)
    09/23/01 -- at Miami 18, Oakland 15 (great finish... SI cover)
    09/24/02 -- Miami 30. N.Y.Jets 3 (Miami breaks 8 game losing streak)



    The games highlighted are favorites.

    If you can think of any other games that are worthy of inclusion please mention them.


    If anyone should have these games on tape or DVD and is willing to share them with us please post on here.

    We have had several volunteers but many dont know how to go about encoding (Capturing ) the DVDs or Tapes.We have several people who are knowledgeable about encoding and we can help you share them on the torrents.They include AWING PILOT,Jaxdolfan,Chrisko,KennyStang,
    Max Power,Medieval,Phinphreak,Crunch Time.

    What is a torrent ? Basically it a file sharing system.The way it works is that a fellow member records the game,edits the commercials, compresses the result into a digital file which is then uploaded to a bittorent site.


    To download a copy of the game You need to first install a client (Program).Then you open the torrent file (A text file which gives instructions to your client) and it will start loading the video file on your HD.Here is a link to the official client

    http://www.bittorrent.com/ (Disregard the donations request)


    For more advanced users http://www.bitcomet.com/
    http://www.portforward.com/cportsnot...t/BitComet.htm

    In order to see the encoded video on your PC you will need to install codecs.That only comes into play after the load is complete and you want to see the game on your PC player.You will be advised what codecs to install.A very good media player that will read most codecs is the Videolan player.Here is the link.http://www.videolan.org/vlc/


    The DVD size videos do not need codecs but do need special viewers such as WinDVD and PowerDVD.To watch the DVDfile on your PC just open the vob.files.

    To burn a DVD try the following tips

    If you re-create that structure on your PC, then you can burn straight to DVD with no problems with any software you normally use...





    BTW the torrents that are not DVD quality will suffer in comparison if your objective is to burn the video and watch it on a big screen.They are oriented for PC viewing.Here is the link for the codecs for the Divx ripped videos.

    For those who would like to load the game but who need additional technical help check the following FAQs.

    http://www.filesoup.com/faq/
    http://dessent.net/btfaq/

    For those with a technical background
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bittorrent


    We request that you roll back through the thread if you have any questions.The information you seek may have already been answered.


    No torrent can be successful without the participation of encoders(Those who capture the video, encode and upload the torrents),seeders (Those who stay on after they finish loading to help out other members who are trying to finish) and leechers (A misnomer as they are also sharing their BW as they are trying to finish). If you are interested please post on this thread.


    The torrents usually start slowly and build up downloading BW (bandwidth speed) as those who finish stay on to seed for those who have not finished.If done properly it has an snowballing effect.

    If you are experiencing slow download speeds or you suspect you have Firewall issues to overcome you may want to forward your ports.Try the following procedures.(Only for PC literates)

    Some helpful info for Encoders/Cappers

    http://www.digital-digest.com/
    www.videohelp.com

    To edit commercials you can try a program called Virtual Dub.There is another associated mod program called Nandub which will help you resolve any audio sync issues.There are other programs as well that can do the job.

    There are several encoding programs you could use.Check the following comparison tables.
    .
    http://graphics.csail.mit.edu/~tbue.../avi.html#divx5
    http://www.videohelp.com/comparison.htm.


    To upload a torrent you first have to make a torrent file.You can use a program called Maketorrent 2.1 for this purpose.Link

    http://krypt.dyndns.org:81/torrent/maketorrent/index.phtml

    Its a simple procedure.The most important information is the URL of the tracker you will be using.

    Note to Encoders:Please include the following NFO text file with your upload.

    The text Version
    http://www.dolphintown.com/Dolphins.txt

    The NFO version
    http://www.dolphintown.com/Dolphins.nfo[
    [Props to AWING PILOT]


    Note to new Encoders and Cappers.It might be a good idea to upload a sample of your torrent before uploading your main torrent.



    We are looking for anyone who can offer us a private tracker.

    Hey Crunch...Im currently downloading. I am under the "leecher" category right now. Once I have the torrent downloaded and I keep it open...do I then become a "seeder" since I should be able to upload ?

    After you finish you leave the client open and you become a seeder.You can still view and burn the file while you are doing it.If you have to shut down the client for one reason or another you can open the torrent file and it will say checking while it goes through the hash of the file that identifies it.When it reaches the end you will note that the upload BW will be moving while your download BW will be at zero.That is seeding.

    Yes.We could use your help.You can avoid opening the client if you install Bitcomet.It keeps track of all torrents opened.

    This game has added pleasure because Pete Carroll is coaching the Jets, & Boomer is their QB...

    It also reminds me of the feeling I used to have that the Fins were never out of a game, & that Marino was the greatest 4th Quarter QB ever...

    I tried to log in with my finheaven name and password and access was denied. Is there another password to use?
