No readme with X-Men?
« on: September 29, 2006, 12:59:01 PM »
I just downloaded the X-men Riff and it did not include a readme (sync info). Will it be available later, or is going to be left off of this Riff?

Should have come with one...???

Looks like this:

                  -= ADVICE =-

Here at RiffTrax, we've worked long and hard to try to make it as easy for you,
the watcher/listener, to enjoy your RiffTrax experience.  After experimenting with
many different methods, techniques and gimmicks, we feel confident in recommending
the following method as the best way to ensure that your RiffTrax stays synched up
with the DVD.  If drift should occur between RiffTrax and the DVD, we simply gauge
how off the timing is, using the handy Disembaudio narrator, then pause the DVD
or the RiffTrax, (which ever one is ahead, obviously), and then unpause after
we feel an appropriate interval has passed, (usually no more than a second.) 
This can be repeated as many times as necessary.  It's not pretty, but it works
darn well. 

If your power goes out, or the phone rings, or you simply want to rewind the nude
scenes, we've provided the below guides.  They breakdown the DVD's chapters, and
indicate the timecode of each RiffTrax at the chapter markers.  This should make it
easier for you to synch up the RiffTrax with the chapter you want to rewind to.

Can I inquire as to where you downloaded it from?  Because I doubt they are altering the files out on the eJunkie site to randomly not include the file.

After you pay for the riff, on the same screen as the "printable receipt" link, there is a Continue button that starts the download.

So, in answer to your true question, Tarantulas, I didn't download the file illegally. It was obtained legitimately from this site, but didn't include the readme in the zip.

Thanks a heap, gammer73!

Both of the X-Men downloads, NTSC and PAL both are zip files that include the Readme file and MP3, I just checked.  There shouldn't be any way that your download happened without a readme.

I've attached the file nevertheless.

I downloaded it again from the email notification, and it now contains the readme. It may have been an abnormal download termination on either end. At any rate, it was just plain screwy.

Thanks for your help, ConorL.
