To celebrate the completion of "The Unwritten Rule Trilogy" and the official announcement of its feature-length sequel, "Return of the French Guy", I have created a DVD containing all three chapters, teaser trailers and outtakes, including special features such as audio commentary and extended/deleted outtakes from "Ex".

You can get your hands on this Limited Edition DVD in 2 ways:

Download the .ISO file (via Bit Torrent Client)

or

Send me a private message begging me to send you a copy of the DVD


I'd like to say thanks again to the FXhome staff, our fans and everybody else who downloaded our movies. I hope you enjoy the DVD.

NOTE: If torrents don't work straight away, don't worry, they will. This is my first attempt at creating torrent files so bear with me while I try to figure it out, lol.

I'm interested in this too, and a torrent is indeed a good way to distribute it, however, I'm having a problem downlading the file. If I click the link, all I get is a page of code, and if I try to Save As... I get an html file.

Hmm.

I think it's like a ZIP file, only you open it with a program called WinISO instead.

And Aculag, do you have the program BitTorrent? Or else you will only get this code.

No, I'm just completely retarded.

I have the program, and I only get code. Someone hop on AIM and send me the torrent file. Or email it to me.

The torrent file definately is not working, as Aculag says is just a load of code. Which torrent site did you upload it to?

Go to http://www.torrentbox.com/index.php and you'll find the DVD and individual parts of the trilogy there. If you can't see them on the front page, do a search.

it's just me uploading right now so be patient smile

oh and a .ISO file is an image file. You can burn it onto a DVD-R/+R or RW using a program like Nero. You can also mount the image onto a Virtual CD drive like Nero Image Drive.

The torrent that I linked before now works, however the webserver they're hosted on don't support torrent files, so right-click and save as a .torrent file instead of a .html file and it should work.

That's just because right now I'm the only one hosting the files, and I can't host them 24/7.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't have AIM :o( Is there anywhere I can upload the files to? Or perhaps someone else who already has them could AIM them to you on my behalf?

I'm downloading it on my home system right now... had it running all night and was at 850mb when I left the house this morning. I didn't notice how much had uploaded from my system but I'll leave bittorrent running even after I've finished downloading to help out with speed and bandwidth for others copying the file...

If you still need hosting, Stepladder, I'd still be glad to help. You could send the files to me at ben3308@sbcglobal.net. This applies to anyone else who needs hosting. While there is no charge, force is appreicated wink

Thanks again Ben, but seeing as how I've been seeding the files for a few days it'll now be faster for you to use Bit Torrent to get them, as I'm not the only one seeding anymore :o)

I do appreciate the offer, I just think that'll be the fastest way of getting them to you, since you'll be downloading from multiple people and I can only upload at 20k.

Thanks again mate.

It's neat that you actully have an .ISO file for download, it's to bad you can't host them at a normal server instead of bit torrent, which always runs slow!

I'll get this this downloaded sometime!

oh btw.. great! wink

you can open iso files with deamon tools to and burn with copy2DVD

just a tip deamon tools is free but copy 2 dvd isn't

http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/portal.php for deamon tools

if you have nero just open the isofile with deamon and burn the files in the virtural drive. Dtools is easier than alcohol biggrin

one more thing that cover is really cool!

No, sorry, it's just not in the right format. It was created in Nero Cover Designer and it can't be exported to an image file. The example I used in this thread is just a screenshot of it.

Hope everyone's enjoying the DVD!
