    I finally reached the rank of Marshall after after almost 9 years since this system was added to bitcomet. Ranks yet to achieve are Generalissimo, and Sovereign. I know many others have reached these ranks long ago and even though I've been running these support forums for almost as long as BitComet has existed it doesn't mean I'm a huge downloader, in fact most of my activity is centered around sharing fan produced science fiction, so virtually all my activity is uploads for new releases, so growth has been sporadic. It will be interesting to see what rank everyone else is at.

    Ity looks like the hamsters have gone on strike again. No doubt we'll get the usual sobs, wailing and gnashing of teeth because scores aren't being upgraded. As before, bitcomet points don't pay for the beer (or give you super abilities in any of the online games) so it's not a big deal really. You can still upload and download (which is what the app is for really). It will be back when it's back.

    Please read the thread marked server down. It's all covered there btw - 'necro-posting' (posting to a thread that's been dead for 6 YEARS) isn't a very good idea

    Our Development team has been making much needed forum upgrades, so it will be a while before the site returns to being stable as we iron out the kinks. Thanks for your patience.

    VBF, I must say I don't like your tone. You are speaking to a member of development here, a team who despite the busy schedules and day jobs which pay their bills, donate time to provide you and other users with this FREE product, and producing this product is their domain, however this community forum is my domain and I will NOT allow it to become a means to attack or insult our development team using ignorance and false information. I do encourage open discussion of such serious topics as this, but you don't seem to even grasp the understanding of the basic terms, such as calling this false positive detection a "virus" and a "trojan" in the same sentence. If in fact there was an actual threat it couldn't be both, a Trojan is very different than a Virus, and your security program incorrectly detected a "trojan", defined as a program that installs without your permission or while claiming to be something different than what it actually does, and there is no evidence or any suggestion (other than yourself) that it contains any type of virus. We've also proven there is no Trojan which you can confirm using the "Total Virus" website which tests BitComet 1.44 using the top 54 anti-virus programs and 100% of them test it as clean (verified just minutes before making this post). We also had another member making the same report, he too was rude and declined to have an honest and intelligent conversation so he was removed... although his topic remains, and if you want to remain part of this community, then I will require you to speak with respect to those providing you with this great (and free) software. Please feel free to ask any questions and research any answers we give you, and feel free to redress any issues you don't agree with based on FACT, not ignorance. The FACT is your security software made a mistake and you are embarrassing yourself by ranting about it. The mature adult thing to do if you get such a detection is to ask politely in our forum, scan it with more apps to get their opinions, and most of all educate yourself as to exactly what your app claims or suspects it found. In this case it is a 100% legit app that is used to offer other software for your consideration, all of which can be easily deselected if not interested. As for "Aliexpress", it is a website similar to eBay that sells goods, mostly from Asia and I've purchased many hard to find parts from them and found them reliable and trustworthy, and you don't have to install their app to use their website, but if you do install one of the offered apps it could make the difference between bitcomet continuing development, or stopping completely. They have bills due each month to pay for the costs of running this forum, the LTseed system, CometID servers, and more, and since donations are few, the only viable method to cover the costs is to bundle apps, and as long as InstallCore is used according to the rules, it's 100% legit and not a threat of any kind, and I'm certain if your anti virus re-evaluates BitComet it will agree. This is really simple, it's not rocket science, a "trojan" is NOT a virus, it's a computer program, and in order to be considered a trojan it has to deceive you as to it's function, or install without notification or a way to opt out, and any of the 54 programs that may have previously detected it as suspect has reclassified it as safe, which proves what I told you in my first reply, so feel free to ask any questions you may have, but any further impolite or sarcastic comments and you will be removed until such time that you can behave as an adult in a civilized manner. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    You do not need to sign in. Please do not post duplicate messages about the same subject. Please search the forum before posting in order to make sure your question hasn't already been dealt with. Your client is fully functional without ever even registering with BitComet Passport, much less signing in. This is not an issue for great concern when it occurs. It will not measurably affect your speed except in very narrow, very rare circumstances which are entirely hypothetical and un-proven. When you are unable to sign in, this is not a matter for concern. Within a short time, you will be able to sign in again. This issue is getting ten times the traffic it deserves. I am beginning to believe the whole idea should just be abandoned or closed off for non-Chinese IP's again, because people seem to just panic over an utterly trivial issue.

    Im not exactly sure how long I have been using this program, 15 years plus im sure. But it has always been there when needed, always works properly, and the layout and tools within are amazing. The BEST torrent software on the market! keep up the good work guys!

    I don't think there's a 'tip jar'. You could send an email to support@bitcomet.com and ask there. Funding (as far as I know) comes with the 'add-on' app when you install the program (the one that has the hupersensitive people screaming about a 'trojan' LOL)

    I also never suggest you using free VPN. Because free VPN only access you to restriction sites but never keep you anonymous and also compromise your internet speed. That's why I will prefer you to use paid VPN. I will suggest you use xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    There are many more peer lists that could appear such as LTseed connected/connecting/disconnected, emule connected/connecting/disconnected, webseed connected/connecting/disconnected, http/ftp connected/connecting/disconnected, as well as the bittorent peer lists shown in your screenshot, so I think if one list was left expanded, or all of them expanded it would be difficult for uses to see what peers are connected. By default only lists of connected peers are open, the rest are closed so you can see lists of other peer connections using one of the other supported protocols.

    None of the files show any seeds (only peers). It's possible that they are all looking but haven't received any parts (in other words, they don't have anything downloaded either). All you can do is go to the website where you downloaded the torrents and ask for a re-seed.

    It would be simpler if you could say what is happening in English (or even French, German or Spanish) but I'm going to guess that you can't log on to the server when downloading - that's because it's not working. Even the link you gave is in Thai I think yiour answer would be เซิร์ฟเวอร์ไม่ทำงานในขณะนี้

    I just hope that you were fast enough hiding it before some idiot decided to target it. Another forum I worked on had us editing e-mail addresses like crazy because some people thought they would get personal replies to their problems not realising they were just volunteering to be on a spammer's list

    Thank you for all the work you've been doing, and I'm sure in time all functionality will be restored. I can report that it's been working perfectly for me for the last several days, but other members in different areas have reported problems. It appears that you've moved the system from cometid.com over to members.bitcomet.com, the old cometid site is still online, but not displaying users stats. http://www.cometid.com/accounts/score It will be nice if the new site shows our daily score like the old one did. It really don't make any difference worth mentioning, but was still nice to be able to see how many points we earned each day and it seems many members like to follow their score closely and enjoy seeing it climb. It might also be nice if members could get spendable points to buy virtual items like custom forum titles, or anything you can come up with. Maybe you could use the cometID points to buy items in the games you develop? it wouldn't interest me at all, but surely some members might show an interest in the games if they can use their good deeds from seeding torrents to earn items in gameplay. In the meantime I will "unofficially" offer anyone of the rank "marshall" or higher a custom forum title, as long as it's not offensive and the requests don't become extremely numerous, since I'd have to manually edit each profile. For now I'll just do this for those who happen to find this offer in the forum, we'll call it an "easter egg".

    Buenas noches a todos. Pido disculpas a todos por las demoras que estoy teniendo de últimas pues, estoy completamente saturada en el trabajo y apenas tengo tiempo de hacer prácticamente cualquier cosa que no sea trabajar. Espero que para Navidad, las cosas se relajen un poquito y no tarde tanto en hacer las traducciones. Un saludo. :) Good evening everyone. I apologize to all for the tardiness that I'm causing lately but, I'm completely saturated at work and I hardly have any time to do practically anything other than work. I hope that by the time Christmas rolls around, things will calm down a little bit and I won't take so long to do the translations. Regards. :)

    The option to edit your post is timed. If I recall correctly you have about an hour to edit before the option is removed. The reason we made this change is because we had members post asking for help, then when we ask for information many members would edit the info into the original post where we don't notice it unless we re-read each reply. We've also had times where posts were edited after people replied to them making the thread impossible for other members to understand which is contrary to the purpose of this forum. We want others to be able to read and learn by posts others have made with similar problems. La opción para poder editar tiene un tiempo limitado. Si mal no recuerdo, tienes aproximadamente una hora antes de que dicha opción desaparezca. La razón que nos llevó a hacer esto es porque algunos socios creaban un post pidiendo ayuda... y cuando les pedíamos información adicional, muchos editaban e incluían la información en el post original, lugar donde no lo veíamos (salvo que leyésemos cada respuesta de nuevo). También tuvimos instantes en los cuales los posts se editaban después de que se habían contestado, haciendo que cada hilo fuera imposible de entender por otros usuarios - todo lo contrario del propósito de este foro--> queremos que los demás puedan leer y aprender a través de los posts que otros usuarios han hecho con problemas similares.

    Same problem here. I can login to BitComet sites and forum, but it keeps timing out trying to login from the BitComet application. I just tried updating to the new release, 1.43, from 1.42 and it still has the same problem. It has to be something from the server's end. My port for BitComet is forwarded outside the firewall and nothing else on my end is blocking it. BitComet shows a green WAN connection.

    Anybody else having this problem, when I download a torrent from say The Pirate Bay it opens in BitComet and the Create task screen save to folder location etc .... screen just lags, saying "Please Specify save location ............" then after a very long time it shows the files in the text box that you can select to save and all is good but very annoying lag time

    If you don't want to wait 3 weeks, I believe you can escalate the dispute after a few days and in that case you should get the refund faster. I can certainly understand that they are shorthanded and perhaps the member of development who maintains this service isn't available, but since it appears to have been down for at least a few weeks so I wish they would either fix it, or take it off line so people stop buying it, but rest assured no one is trying to take anyone's money and everyone will get a refund if it doesn't work for you.

    You must replace the .bc! with the correct extension. Unfortunately if bitcomet downloads the video from a sources outside the torrent's swarm, it must then convert the data into bittorrent pieces of data and if it cannot find an additional file that is in the torrent, then one of those bittorrent pieces will be incomplete, but your video should be complete, and if you disable the option to add the .bc! file extension to incomplete files, then you won't have this problem. This type of cross-protocol downloading is revolutionary and is something no other client can do, so there are minor issues like this, but with any other client you wouldn't have downloaded these torrents at all.

    I believe you may have a unique issue here. Notice that the torrents you selected in this screenshot show 0 seed, and 0 peers, this means they would normally not download at all, at least with any other client, however BitComet has the ability to find these files elsewhere, either from emule, http/ftp, or other torrents, and could also have downloaded the files from our own LTseed network, but since many of these torrents also include a small .nfo or .txt file, which bitcomet could not find, the torrent cannot reach 100%, but if I'm correct the videos should play just fine. You may have to rename the file extension if you have the option enable to use the .bc! extension on incomplete files, if that is the case, look at the file list in one of the torrents, then try copying the file to a different location and changing the name of the file extension to match what it should be. A common example for this type of video would be .avi, .mkv, .mp4, etc... You can also test the file by simply clicking on the "preview" link in bitcomet. If you need help renaming the file extensions, try doing a google search on these terms... view file extensions in windows (add your windows version) Rename file extensions in windows (add your windows version) If the videos don't play correctly, let us know and we can look deeper, but judging by the info in your screenshot this is more than likely the cause.

    I'm afraid this cannot be done as http links were never designed to be stopped and restarted, but additions to the protocol have been added to allow a task still active in the server to be stopped and restarted, but a different pc cannot restart a task as it won't be recognized by the server.

    This should be fixed when version 1.44 is released. Please revert back to 1.41. Esto debería de estar subsanado cuando salga la versión 1.44. Por favor, vuelve a la versión 1.41 .

    Hola gente, estoy usando BitComet 1.42 en Windows 7 x64 Ultimate y hará un par de días me doy cuenta que después de cerrar el programa, cuando lo abro de nuevo, se olvida de mis preferencias de archivos seleccionados. Me explico mejor: si tengo archivos que originalmente no quería bajar desmarcados, al reiniciar el programa aparecen seleccionados para descargar. Reinstalé el programa y no lo solucionó. Agradezco su ayuda, saludos Hello folks, I'm using BitComet 1.42 on Windos 7 x 64 Ultimate and, about a couple of days ago, I noticed that after closing down the program, when I open it again, it has forgotten my selected files references. That is to say, if I had unmarked files that I had originally not wanted to to download, after restarting the program, they appear as being selected to be downloaded. I reinstalled the program but no joy. I appreciate your help. Greetings.

    There must be a balance between downloading the entire files so you can preview snapshots of everything, or limiting the snaptops to enough to determine if the material is what you expected. The more snapshots you elect to make the more overhead bandwidth is used and as far as questions and complaints go, we get far more regarding the bandwidth wasted in making these then we get from people requesting more, so you can't please everyone. In addition, these snapshots are hosted on a server that bitcomet pays for and since it's a free service we are lucky they continue to do this. You're welcome to request they increase the amount of snapshots, or generate them from every file but unless you can suggest a way to pay for this I don't know if it would be seriously considered. This would also be forcing other members to use their bandwidth to provide your snapshots, so in my opinion this feature should remain as lean as possible. We have had similar requests from members saying that in some torrents the snapshots are of "other" videos like advertisements and previews, not the actual film. This could be a problem, but in my mind I think I would avoid torrents that contain unwanted videos like that. The bottom line is it's not a perfect world and we can't make everyone happy. If there was a solution that everyone could agree to and it wasn't costly to implement I'm sure the development team would consider it.

    We aren't aware of any issues involving password resetting in CometID. Normally this could be resolved within one business day by someone in development, but they are on Vacation, celebrating a national Chinese holiday. Please send a private message to Administrator Zerojinn, who should be able to resolve this by the end of the week, or early next week at the latest. Please include your CometID name and the email you used to register it.

    Linda, are you aware that if you use Internet Explorer and select the "run" option instead of the "save" option when downloading a file, that the file then gets downloaded to a hidden system folder where it can sit and take up space, often indefinitely. Also, should you need to reinstall the file or run it again, most users end up downloading it again because they have no idea where your Internet Explorer has hidden the file. Its my personal opinion that doing this is only serving to produce ignorant users who don't understand something as simple as handling files in windows. Also, your much better off opening files in the windows operating system, not in a web browser, so regardless if you want to use bitcomet to download the files or not, I'd strongly suggest YOU decide where you want your computer to save the files you download, then you know where they are in case you want to use them again, or in case you simply want to delete them to free up space.

    Hello Kluelos, thank you for your feedback, but I chose a custom installation from the very start, and chose not to integrate the feature into either browser. I installed bitcomet well over three months ago and never had this problem until about a week ago. Should I uninstall and then reinstall?

    Whenever you install any software, you're usually given the option to choose a default installation, or to customize it. Sometimes that's called "advanced". Always choose the custom/advanced installation and go through it. Even if you don't change any of the defaults, this will let you know what the application is doing. That avoids surprises. When you take the custom installation option, you can choose not to install the IE download integration.

    Thank you for this information; unfortunatey I am having trouble getting to that website, but no worry, I will keep trying, and if everything else fails I will try a proxy. I am in China, so sometimes new websites are difficult to reach. Anyway thank you, I have wanted to upload to show my appreciation for the work so many of you do for us novices, but the explanations so far have been for those that actually understand who I would think don't need instructions anyway. I will certainly come back and comment once I have had a chance to actually try this Thank you again.

    Please Note: READ THIS before posting, announcements are being added to some of the sections, with specific requirements of what info is required to assist members. We are seeing an increasing number of members asking for assistance, but not providing even the most basic of information, such as what version of Bit Comet they are using, what type of internet connection, router, modem, version of windows etc... This only wastes your time and ours, so provide as much info in your first post, and we will be glad to assist you.
