Cheers for the reply.

Since my last post, and without me doing anything, the latest video (VR rodeo) has appeared and isn't a duplicate so its working fine.

I tried sudo supervisorctl status and that gives the proper message.

I ran php artisan migrate:refresh and initially got error that application in process. Running sudo supervisorctl stop all then running php artisan migrate:refresh did rest the downloader (it asked me to put in API key again, refreshed my videos list, reset rules to blank and which videos marked as download - which I was expecting!). But strangely all the videos again were duplicates, even more strangely, the most recent video (VR rodeo) was not. Is it calling on same local database or something again? Then again this not issue for me as working great now - only mention it if bug for you.

I have kept app in opt/giantbomb_downloader (as default) so think cron job working as mentioned it had refresh to have VR rodeo on there.

I have added some rules and will let you know how I get on.

Regarding how many days - I feel 30 days fine, would more slow down? Just wonder whether would useful to download series i.e. Yakuza from start but TBH fine at 30 days for me is attraction is downloading videos ongoing.

Hi

First of all, great work!

- I am running Ubuntu server 16.04. I when through your bash script manually doing each step individually.

- php 7.1 isn't in Ubuntu repos. but went through apt-get installing each package individually getting php7.0 versions without issue

- Had a problem running

php /opt/giantbomb_downloader/artisan migrate --force

which gave the error:

PHP Warning: require(/opt/giantbomb_downloader/bootstrap/../vendor/autoload.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /opt/giantbomb_downloader/boo tstrap/autoload.php on line 17

PHP Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/opt/giantbomb_downloader/bo otstrap/../vendor/autoload.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php') in /opt/giantbom b_downloader/bootstrap/autoload.php on line 17

- After some googling running seemed run through huge amount of installing etc (too long to log here) then it worked:

sudo composer update --no-scripts

- Running composer.phar without root got the following with permission error?

./composer.phar install

Cannot create cache directory /home/nas/.composer/cache/repo/https---packagist.org/, or directory is not writable. Proceeding without cache

- My earliest video listed is the following. Does this use RSS to get video list or any way of going back further? Had feeling this is limited on the Giantbomb side?

This Is the Run: Soulcalibur - Part 081.21GBNEW19/04/2017

- I was having an unhelpfully vague [Object] [object] message/error from chrome when loading the home page. Redoing chown + chmod of opt/gbdownloaded directory seemed to get rid of this

- You mentioned features, if possible a option to specify where videos are downloaded. I have my OS on a USB stick attached to a NAS. Got around this by making a sym link to my storage from opt/gb/storage etc folder.

- I do have a couple of small issues: My videos are all duplicates ie. each video is listed twice/duplicated. When I was troubleshooting I ran some of the commands more than once, such as the following, could that have caused the issue? Done some exploring but can't seem to find where this info stored or can be reset.

sudo composer update --no-scripts

sudo php /opt/giantbomb_downloader/artisan schedule:run >> /dev/null 2>&1

and then:

sudo php /opt/giantbomb_downloader/artisan schedule:run

- When click "Save" on video it will download but the bar above doesn't change from 0.00B. I am not sure ifs something to do with not loading image assets full stop, as the splash page had a empty box indicating an image not loaded.

- If you are on page 2 and click download it will do this but knocked you back to the first page each time.

- How do you use the rule page? I can add a "Video name" text string and click enable and it will add it self to current rules. For example, can I add quick looks?

Again, massive thumbs up. This will be extremely useful. Above just some queries and hope useful testing info - not a moan or nitpicking I hope. Sorry, my programming knowledge is very limited!

@gizmo88: Was a "Rage" card of some sort, then Radeon 9xxx cant remember the exact ones. If my memory serves, the Rage card was ATI and Nvidia roles were reversed.

Edit:

For a bit of balance though I agree AMD best for performance to money ratio. But consistently it has been more and more effort to optimise games before playing them due to Nvidia specific tech and slow/poorly optimised drivers on AMD. I know a lot of this boils down to the Nvidia PR machine which is sad. (with their Nvidia tech wedged into games) But now I'm more weathered, weary and now have more disposable income its now a case if you cant beat 'em, join 'em....

Out of personal experience here as someone who has had AMD for 10 years - I can not wait to jump ship to Nvidia. The cost won't con me this time. The crossfire and driver support is absolutely appalling, and has been getting consistently worse over this time.

Always planned to get a new nvidia card around now (cant decide 1070 or 1080...) and was going to get a rift. After seeing the lack of games etc I have cancelled this.

This £500 is still saved up and I was thinking about upgrading my Dell 24inch 1920x1200 monitor for something that takes advantage of a bump in graphical power.

So tempted to use that money to get a 27inch monitor QHD (4k seems still too far out currently). After all that waffle my question is - does anyone have any experience with Gsync and or 144hz gaming?

Seems one can get a decent QHD monitor for £300-400, with adding in 144hz and gysnc limiting options to high end monitors at £500-600. I'm trying to get a sense of whether its worth it or not. For example; recently PC has been used for Tomb Raider, Dark souls 3, Fallout 4, Doom, Witcher 3.

Cheers

I'd put money on the processor. I'm 8GB RAM and debating whether it would help but don't see how. Remember hearing about how a lot of open world city games rely on processor (i.e. its what caused AC:Unity to perform so badly) processing population density / draw distance etc so could try toning those down?
