EDIT: Never mind.

I don't suppose I could convince one of you to put this somewhere I can actually download it once (it fails within a couple minutes 100% of the time, and does not resume when restarted)? I'm writing a new parser/player and having everything would be helpful rather than the like 50 games I'm currently using for testing.

If something like Google Drive with a private link isn't possible I should be able to get IRC working for file transfers.

Suggestion: A simple format version of the update feed. E.g. XML or CSV with game name, (maybe) game URL, pack URL, pack version, update date/time, and update description. Pack moves/renames would have to be handled as updates (new entries in the list), though could use the same version number.

I was really hoping for something that didn't require parsing HTML pages :P

I was really hoping for something that didn't require parsing HTML pages :P

So, after playing around with it some (and appreciating just how slow the VGMRips server is), there are a couple ways we could go to make this efficient (new pages that could be added to the site):
1. A list of all files currently in the archive containing at least: the file path, file size, and file last modified date/time, either as CSV or XML
2. An XML-based representation of the latest releases page https://vgmrips.net/packs/latest that provides either all of them on a single page or paged, with some large number of items on each page (e.g. 500 packs). To be efficient this version would need to contain the info from the release's page (e.g. https://vgmrips.net/packs/pack/earthwor ... -boy-color, which would preferably include the ZIP file's date/time as well), so that only a single XML feed needs to be pulled to get all the information necessary to determine new/updated files and download them.

Optionally, either of these could be combined with an HTTP parameter that lets the user specify the oldest date to return - the latest date they have packs for. This would cut down on disk/database accesses and amount of data the server needs to transmit for packs the user already has, but makes the CSV/XML data uncacheable.

Alright asshole, you just earned yourself a ban. Don't come to a new community acting like you own the place. Don't crawl my site, you just caused us some downtime. I'm not going to fix the HTML just so your highness can parse it more easily. Go fuck yourself.
