Guide: Batch renaming

Post by takenoko » Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:21 am

First, stop the torrent that you're on.

Use this program to rename the files:
http://www.fauland.com/af5.htm

This is a batch of the file names (it's also included in the folder)
DekaRanger: http://www.sendspace.com/file/97050p

Once you install the program, do this:

1. Take the files and drag and drop them into the program.

*Don't accidentally include the text since I think the program needs the exact right number of files to rename

2. Rename->Import or Ctrl+I

Select the appropriate text file

3. Enlarge the program, and make sure both sides match up. If they don't, highlight the ones that are out of place and hit Up or Down on the menu to the right (you can select multiple files with shift or ctrl)

4. When everything's lined up, just hit rename and all the files should be fixed

Now that all the files have been fixed, you can resume the torrent

Just a heads up, ran into an issue while doing this. After you add the files to the program and import the text file, BE SURE the names match up. When I went to add the files, I sorted by name, selected all, and added them. Unfortunately the original names don't list in the proper order if you do them alphabetically. I eventually had to add the files a few and occasionally one at a time to make sure they were in the same order as the new names in the text file.

Otherwise, worked perfectly.

Yeah, step 3 covers all that XD

I included a new list. So you can either do it up like the batches on the torrent or you can do it all at the same time. The problem with drag and drop is that there's usually a chunk of it out of place at the end. It's usually easily fixable by just highlighting that chunk and moving it up and down

If you mean the list I included isn't in the right order, let me know which ones are out of place and I'll release a new list. It's just a text file so it's super easy to modify

Nope, I'm just a moron and didn't see that bit in step 3 that says you can move them up and down after you add them. Didn't notice it in the program either. So nevermind!

Is there a similar program that will run on OSX? (Haven't looked yet, just noticed that the link you posted only runs on Windows). If anyone finds one let me know/ If I find one I will post it here for all of the Mac users.

Did you redownload the torrents? The torrents are active, they shouldn't just do nothing for a week
