Exotica collection to your own hard disk

Postby KeMoT » Thu Aug 31, 2006 7:00 pm

I love exotica scans collection, some time ago I have spent few hours on grabbing it to my hard disk, I have done it manually - I browsed everything, enlarged scans and wrote it down to my hd but updates/new scans surely came to the gallrey and I am completely lost about what I have so far... :(

Is there any way you could let people download all the collection in one archive :?:

it's not such a simple task to make an archive of just the gallery now that the site is wiki based (at least nto without scripting something via the api). However not that many entries have been added since your last archive so you could just check the page history and download any additional images. Alternatively you can download archive of all the images from the site, and then sort through them:

I am aware of what I am asking and thank you very, very much for your work.

I am a bit confused... I have lost previous archive so now I got nothing and I need it all. How to do this ? The link you gave showed 3 .tar files. What are they ?

apologies for late reply. Those files contain all images from exotica (they are dumped each month, keeping a few months worth, so you would only need one). however they contain lots of images you probably don't want also.
