WHY ARE THERE STILL DOWNLOAD LINKS FROM CROCKO.COM?

There are still a small amount of crocko direct download links. I will be removing ALL of these and replacing them with RabidFiles links. Sorry for the inconvenience.

WE WILL NO LONGER BE USING CROCKO.COM. DON’T GIVE THEM ANYMORE OF YOUR MONEY!!

WHICH WEB BROWSER SHOULD I BE USING?

We recommend Chrome. You can get it here https://www.google.com/chrome
It is secure, fast, free and safe to install, plus it supports many advanced features and has useful “extensions” to customize your browsing needs.

You should not be using Internet Explorer. Its buggy; a few seconds on the wrong kind of website is all it takes for your computer to become infected with hoards of spyware and/or malware.

I also like to use FireFox
Get it here: http://www.mozilla.com

WHICH VIDEO PLAYER SHOULD I BE USING?

I recommend using Media Player Classic (Home Cinema), it’s an f-ing brilliant player for infinite reasons and it’s FREE. So get it!! Use it!!
You can get MPC HC here – http://sourceforge.net/projects/mpc-hc/files/

HOW TO PLAY SUBTITLES
First of all are the subtitles included in the video file or are they a separate file. If they are a separate file then move to the next explanation below this one.

When subtitles are included in the video file they will usually play automatically with the video. If they don’t show up, you will most likely have to go into your medial player’s setting and manually turn on the subtitles. Some subtitles can be turned on or off that way, others are permanently part of the video.

If this doesn’t help try a different player. I always recommend Medial Player Classic!!

HOW TO USE SUBTITLE FILES

Make sure you
– extract the subtitle files from the .rar file
– have the sub files and the movie files in the same folder
– the sub file name matches with the coordinating movie file
– delete any previously installed codex packs and install the updated K-Lite Mega Codec Pack
– try a different player (I recommend media player classic, it’s an f-ing brilliant player for infinite reasons and it’s FREE.) So get it!! Use it!!
NOW play the movie file, the subs should load automatically

using sub files is really simple and if you have your software up to par it should only require you to have the files in the same folder and play the video

WHAT IS AN NFO (.nfo) FILE AND HOW DO I OPEN IT?

A NFO file is a text file ending with .nfo
An NFO file will usually contain important information on the installation and use of the download it accompanies.
It is a good idea to read over NFO files, they can usually clarify any problems you are having with your download or direct you to where you can find help.

There are specific programs out there for opening an NFO file but these are not necessary.

ALL you need to open and view an NFO file is notepad!

To open a .nfo file follow these simple steps:
– Right click on the .nfo file and hover over “open with”.
– Click on “choose program”
– This will open a window titled “open with”.
– Find and select “notepad” from the list of programs.
– Check the box that says “Always use the selected program to open this kind of file”
(this way you won’t have to repeat these steps the next time you open an NFO file)
– Click “ok” to save these setting and open your NFO file.

If you need further help;
View detailed instructions on “how to open an NFO file” here: http://hshare.net/topic/1363-how-to-open-an-nfo-file-nfo/

WHY CAN’T I SEE THE FILE EXTENSION?

It is very common for people to have the file extensions turned off, so they will not show up in the files name, this can make it very difficult and confusing when trying to identify file types. (In Windows XP the file extensions are turned off by default.)

To display file extensions (file types) [this method works for all Windows Operating Systems including Windows 7];
– Click the “Start menu” and select “Control Panel”
– This will open the “Control Panel” folder. From here double click the “Folder Options” icon.
– This will open the “Folder Options Window”. From here click the “View” tab.
– This will show the files and folder view settings. From the “Advanced Settings List” find and DESELECT/uncheck “Hide extensions for known file types”.
– Click “Apply” then “OK”. Setting saved!
This setting is system wide, so file extensions will now appear in all folders. They can be hidden again at any time by re-selecting “Hide extensions for known file types”.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 8bit AND 10bit VERSIONS?
To put it simply, 10bit is an updated way of encoding video files that allows one to get a higher quality in a smaller file size. In my experience with 10bit, I usually see that it has brighter colors and a higher contrast, giving it the look of a sharper more defined picture.
When I encode files to 10bit I try to maintain at least the same quality or better than the 8bit version, while trying for the smallest file size this allows. (it’s a drastically smaller file size without losing quality)

10bit VERSION TROUBLESHOOTING!!
10bit versions can only be played on your computer. If you are trying to play it on another devise you will need the 8bit or mobile device(iPhone) version.

If you can’t play the 10bit version

– Make sure you delete ALL codices (codecs) you may have installed and install THIS codex pack:
K-Lite Mega Codex Pack – http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

And / Or

– Try a different video player.
If you don’t already have it, download and install Media Player Classic (Home Cinema)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mpc-hc/files/

***10bit video apparently can now also be played on a MAC but if your using a MAC and need help, I’m sorry but your on your. (I don’t use MAC and can not help you out with this)

WHAT IS AN MKV (.mkv) FILE? HOW DO I USE AN MKV FILE?

MKV files are video files ending in .mkv, and just like other more common video file types such as AVI(.avi); you simply double click the file to play/run the video.

If you are unable to play/run an MKV file this is most likely because your current player does not support this file type.

– Make sure you delete ALL codices (codecs) you may have installed and install THIS codex pack:
K-Lite Mega Codex Pack – http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

And / Or

– Try a different video player.
If you don’t already have it, download and install Media Player Classic (Home Cinema)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mpc-hc/files/

Or try another player such as;
GOM http://www.gomplayer.com/main.html
or
VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc

I personally prefer to use “Windows Media Player Classic”. (with the k-lite pack) But I have used both GOM and VLC in the past.

WHAT IS AN OGM (.ogm) FILE? HOW DO I USE AN OGM FILE?

OGM files are video files ending in .ogm, and just like other more common video file types such as AVI; you simply double click the file to play/run the video.

If you are unable to play/run an OGM file this is most likely because your current player does not support this file type.

– Make sure you delete ALL codices (codecs) you may have installed and install THIS codex pack:
K-Lite Mega Codex Pack – http://www.codecguide.com/download_k-lite_codec_pack_mega.htm

WHAT ARE RAR(.rar) FILES AND ZIP(.zip) FILES?

These are compressed files. They contain one or more files that have been compressed to reduce file size, or stored as-is in a batch.
On HentaiAnimeDownloads.com you will probably only see RAR (.rar) files, but there may also be some ZIP(.zip) files as well. They all work essentially the same way.

HOW DO I EXTRACT THE FILES FROM A RAR(.rar) or ZIP(.zip)FILE? // HOW DO I UNCOMPRESS A RAR(.rar) OR ZIP(.zip) FILE?

Windows alone is capable of extracting files from a ZIP (.zip) file. But to extract the files from a RAR (.rar) file you will need a Compression Utility Program. This program allows you to both compress files (archive them) and decompress files (extract them). There are many of these to choose from, we recommend WinRAR.

Get WinRAR here: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm (most users will want to click the first option on in the list)

To extract files using WinRAR;
– Locate the compressed file (RAR or ZIP) that you want to extract files from.

-A- To extract a single file or folder;
– Double-click the compressed file to open it.
– Then, select and drag the file or folders to a new location.

-B- To extract all contents of the compressed file;
– Right click the compressed file.
– Hover over the WinRAR option, this will expand your options. You can now choose between “Extract Files Here” or “Extract Files To *THE COMPRESSED FILE’S NAME*”.

I suggest clicking on “Extract Files To *THE COMPRESSED FILE’S NAME*” as this will keep all files being extracted inside their own folder.
If you click on “Extract Files Here” the files will simply be dropped into whatever folder the compressed file was in, if you are extracting a large group of files on your desktop this option can get messy.

-C- To extract ALL files from multiple compressed files at one time;
– Select the multiple files you wish to “decompress” (extract files from).
– Right click on the fist compressed file.
– Hover over the WinRAR option, this will expand your options. You can now choose between;
“Add to archive…”
“Add to *THE COMPRESSED FILE YOU CLICKED ON’S NAME*.rar”
“Extract Here”
“Extract Each Archive to a Separate Folder”
“Extract to *THE COMPRESSED FILE YOU CLICKED ON’S NAME*”

I suggest clicking on “Extract Each Archive to a Separate Folder” as this will keep all the files being extracted from each individual compressed file (RAR, ZIP or ACE archive) inside their own folder.
If you click on “Extract Files Here” ALL the files from ALL the compressed file (RAR, ZIP or ACE archive) you selected will simply be dropped into whatever folder the compressed files were in. If you are extracting a large group of files from multiple compressed file (RAR, ZIP or ACE archive) you can see how this could easily become confusing, and if you are extracting to your desktop it will leave you with a messy bulk of files.

WHY NO TORRENT FILES?

I am going back to direct download links and removing the torrent links as I go. Torrents were always temporary and only on here until we got a new filehost.

CAN YOU POST TORRENTS?

NO. (but keep reading)

WHERE CAN I GET A TORRENT FOR THIS RELEASE?

Visit http://hshare.net
or
Go straight to the H-anime section – http://hshare.net/forum/22-hentai-anime-downloads/

WHY POST PIXY ANIME WHEN YOU ONLY POST DEMOS?

I Love PIXY works and although I am not permitted to post episodes on the site I can still share covers, screenshots and yes demos to spread awareness of their awesome releases. I also include an affiliate link at the bottom of each post so that if anyone so chooses they can purchase and download the release. I do not try to hide any of this, that’s why I have everything clearly labeled in both English and Japanese so you know what’s what. My goal isn’t to deceive you, I just want to share my love of PIXY with you however I can.

(I do not get ANY money from the DLSite affiliation. They give out points that can be use towards the purchase of releases on their site and these points do expire over time.)

PLEASE do not ask me where to download the full episodes of the PIXY anime demos I post, I provide affiliate links to where you can download each one and I apologize but that is the only place I will mention.

WHO IS THE GIRL ON THE BANNER?

She is Kujou Miu (九条美海) from the manga/anime Linebarrels of Iron.
