They still use 1980's technology in the year 2024. Are they based?

      files into 50mb rar fles for redundancy
      this is more like mental illness than anything else

      50mb autism exists only to have bragging rights you uploaded something 1st, there is no other sense to that. Scene are mostly more autistic private trackers game.

    it's all encrypted so it's not a problem. it's fast. it just werks.
    > not a single zoomer
    there are some zoomers but not very many. it's a problem as elder sceners age with fewer people to replace them.
    >Are they based?
    mostly.

    Nah. Scenegays were always moronic. That shit was dumb 20 years ago when most sane people had moved on to torrents or DC++.

      20 years ago 99.9% of the content you found on torrent and DC hubs trickled down from FTP sites.

        How true is this today? Curious how much of the old scene is active still.

            Depends on the content. Scene encodes kinda suck ass.

          I know the music scene lost its edge a long time ago and nowadays some private torrent sites have internal p2p groups to release movies and TV shows sourced from streaming sites. The ISO scene might be different, since cracking requires reverse engineering skills something the Average Joe cannot do by following some written guide. I'd guess the majority of software cracks and BluRay rips still come from the scene.

    I am researching the history of piracy. Does The Scene even still exist? From my perspective most groups went p2p or are boutique crackers for the new hardcore DRM that have their own telegram.

      Yes. You can check a pre site like predb.me to see the amount of stuff released every minute.

        I am suprised how this is all still going via giant servers and ftp. I would assume the scene is much more decentral. I have so many Questions

        How have they not been nuked by glowies yet? How large is this Network?
        What kind of Crypto/Tools do they use?
        How do they recruit People?
        How are all the servers connected?
        Who is behind PreDB?
        Is there some kind of governance?

        Would anyone share a screenshot of one of those ftps? Just to prove they exist?

          You cand find the answers to your quesions in books like How Music Got Free or Warez: The Infrastructure and and Aesthetics of Piracy or in an amateurish low budget TV show called Welcome to the Scene available on Youtube to get a general idea, and there are also plenty of news articles about scene busts (Operation Buccaneer, Fastlink, Site Down, etc. or the SPARKS busts just from a few years ago). Take everything with a grain of salt though, the accuracy of reporting on the scene usually is not very high. There's also this site called defacto2, there you can find a bunch of historical nfos.

    Miss the good old days of Scene exclusive Private Trackers, when Scene was king and P2P shit, now is the inverse.
    And the fun Pre time wars

    ScT, SCC, GFT miss them

    Is there any Scene Private tracker left?

      Yeah and and they suck. Scene is just not outputting enough content compared to p2p. Scene content gets upload to private trackers anyways. Some of the time even automatically.

    Scene releases nowadays are shit for anything. Maybe software here and there for some niche shit but P2P people are just way better and keeping up and their tools overwhelmingly clear anything that the scenetards create. Most scene groups straight up just steal P2P like in games and TV pres. Even P2P releases 0-day shit way faster such as Blurays and music. Its sad to see the state of those guys nowadays, only tough shit that remains is that in P2P if you want the real good shit then you HAVE to join a private tracker like HDB to see just how far ahead they are than scene, its not even close.

      scene is good for porn, especially the 2160p kind because they release that automatically, where p2p guys do not bother

        What's with scenegays not releasing OF content? P2P dominates them in that category.

    No one cares about a bunch of old white men rotting away in a couple of IRCs
    They will just die and disappear, kids just use discord nowadays and upload everything there.

      After Microsoft buys Discord there will be some changes in the UI. It will look a lot more like MS Teams. I heard it will work almost the same way.

    Change out FTP with SFTP and use the LFTP client using the mirror+sftp subsystem and we're on the same page. Two cron jobs means you and I sync all our files back and forth automagically.

      How does the whole network work? There's just way too many releases to host everything automatically..

        add your friends and dirs to your hosts files, they do the same. use comments to set IN or OUT, bandwidth, SSH port, etc...
