CLUBBOX Tutorial  
EDIT: INFORMATION POSTED HERE ARE STILL SOMEWHAT RELEVANT, BUT FOR THE MORE UPDATED TUTORIAL, KINDLY HEAD OVER HERE. I DON'T THINK I COULD UPDATE THIS POST ANYMORE.

So I thought I had to make this since CLUBBOX changes its layout every now and then. So, I'd say, this is updated as of 08-10-2012? :))

Credits to kattunlove and mi_chan176 for most of the information used in the making of this tutorial.


REGISTRATION

IMPORTANT: Use Internet Explorer when signing up! If you use a different browser, CLUBBOX will tell you that something is wrong with your Date of Birth (exactly what happened to me! ;A;) and will not let you make an account.

Right-click the image and click Open link in new tab to view fully.

1. Click on the Register button on the main page.
register
2. Tick the two check boxes on the succeeding page and click Agree.

WELCOME TO CLUBBOX! Have fun file-sharing! (lol)




DOWNLOADING

IMPORTANT: Use Internet Explorer as much as possible, as CLUBBOX entails a lot of JavaScript and your current browser settings may hinder the downloading process.

1. Download the Clubbox setup here. Install the file.

2. Go to the home page and log in.
login

3. Type in the search bar the keywords to the file you want to download and click the Search button or press Enter on your keyboard.
search
4. On the Search Result page, click on the preferred file or tick the check box(es) and click Download.

5. A pop-up box will appear with the details of your download. Click Download.

6. A series of pop-up boxes will show up until you get this one. Kindly close this unless you have purchased download certificates for quick downloading. NOTE: For users downloading for the first time, you may be prompted to download the CLUBBOX File Transfer Manager before proceeding.
certificate

7. Your download will now proceed. Click on START if the download has not started yet.
NOTE:
If you have multiple files running you will have to wait for the one to finish first before you can start downloading the other(s).
download

HAPPY DOWNLOADING!

IMPORTANT NOTES AND REMINDERS:
- Files in CLUBBOX can be opened even before the download finishes. Just open the .*_NEO_ file to take a peek. (for videos, open using VLC Player)
- Do not close the file manager until you finish downloading, or else you will have to start over since the download file(s) will be automatically removed from the list. (Plus, you get the chance to accumulate Mileage points, which can be used to exchange goods on CLUBBOX) EDIT: You can actually resume downloading from Clubbox! Do not delete the two files formed from downloading and download the same link again from CLUBBOX. It shall pick up from where it was before you closed the file transfer manager.

(Mileage can be used for acquiring download certificates for quick downloads, but I'll talk about it later.)


I hope this helps you in your way to CLUBBOX! lol

Ugh! When I use the VPN software, the download permit page (the one that pops after pressing downlaod) doesn't load and the clubbox software doesn't open either! I give up!

orz Sorry to reply only just now, but mentioning about accessing CLUBBOX from the school's WiFi connection and trying to connect using the VPN software didn't help either, I mighty think it's due to your browser's proxy settings, most likely. CLUBBOX doesn't work with proxy servers hindering its connection with its own server (notice it doesn't have a part to key in the proxy address and port number?). Try clearing that part of your browser and accessing CLUBBOX from a proxy-free connection and maybe it will work...finally. :)

Yeah, that's what I said; I'm using a connection with proxy settings that I can't enter into Clubbox because it doesn't have such option and since I'm studying abroad and hence living on campus with only the university's Internet to use, I've got no choice really
ルーhsjluv93 on October 25th, 2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, sorry to hear that...Hmm, so maybe, you'll have to find an Internet connection with no proxy settings (maybe a mall connection? XD) or have to wait to get home to access a proxy-free connection. ;____; *hug* Aaaack, that's really a stupid limitation of CLUBBOX, aside from it not being able to work with Mac OS :/

Hmm, I guess that's an idea; I can try to use a cafe's wifi or so though that would mean I can only dl short clips if any since the only decent Internet connection in this whole country is my university's. How ironic!

Thanks for your help though!

Wish you luck on that! Though as the tutorial says, you can resume download by keeping the two files formed during download, and accessing the same download link over again. Plus, the download certificates will certainly help you in downloading faster. :) (lol, remind me to update on that once you stumble on a turtle connection around your cafe HAHAHAHA)
