    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.

    Without an open listening port you will not receive any peer initiated requests. The only way you can connect to a peer is if you initiate the connection and most peers in a swarm already have the connections they need. As new peers enter the Swarm they will try to connect with others except they cannot reach you. You will not know they exist until you receive a Tracker update and by then they may have all the peers they need. If you cannot receive incoming connections your performance is going to be horrible on most torrents. I highly recommend you get a better internet connection and mobile broadband is never a good option when using peer-to-peer downloading. Fiber optic is usually the best option

    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.

    Read the previous posts - the server is down (and as it's run by volunteers it's not likewly to be back until the beginning of the week at the earliest). You can still upload and download - the only difference is that you won't collect any points (which can't be exchanged for beer anyway - they're just a bit of fun)

    Hi. For a few hours now I'm trying to login to my CometID in the Bitcomet client and it keeps saying "CometID not exists" I've seeded with that account for more than six years. Why would this happen? Also, I don't have access to the e-mail account it was ascociated with. What can I do?

    Most free VPNs will only let you have a very limited download where a paid one is normally uinrestricted. If it's just for browsing 'blocked' torrent sites, then a free one is fine - however, if your ISP is tracking yuor downloads and reporting back to one of the copyright chasing firms, then you need a pay up front one,

    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!

    The guys who run the server do it in their spare time (unpaid). We just have to wait until they get a chance. byw, it will 'log in' if you leave it running for a few hors (it's just very slow)

    Can I just ask everyone a huge favour please? Those of you who are planning to put Christmas lights around the outside of your houses, garden walls etc. please will you avoid anything blue and flashing? Every time I drive past I think it’s the police and have a mild panic attack. I have to remove my foot from the accelerator, apply the brakes, put my seat belt on, throw my phone on the floor and hide my beer. It’s extra drama I really don’t need! I appreciate your cooperation and understanding and hope I’ve given you all plenty of notice.

    Hi I have been using bitcomet for years without problem but since upgrading to 1.51 my D/L speeds are ridiculously low and it is difficult to do anything on my pc whilst downloading. Is 1.51 defective? I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no difference. please help

    And who, pray tell, do you think YOU are? Let me set you straight, tahlias... you are a user (and quite an imperious one at that) of BitComet, nothing more. When one receives a great FREE product with FREE SUPPORT, that person should, at the very least, show a minimum amount of decorum for receiving said services, instead of rudely demanding that the original (and altruistic) donors "fix" this or that. Just so you can broaden your frame of reference, let me inform you that the "guys" that you are talking down to all have regular day jobs and nowhere in their job descriptions does it state that they are on this Earth to specifically please you and your inflated airs of grandeur. Think about it... you would do well to remember this the next time that you feel the urge to post something.

    As I said elsewhere, I do try to keep seeding but just run it for 10 hours overnight while I'm in bed. The reason for that is my ISP throttled back my connection speed one time for 'excessive bandwidth usage during peak hours' so I was forced to reduce it or suffer a lousy connection. Some people think torrenting is a way to get stuff and completely miss the point that it's meant to be a sharing system. Far too many simply drop the file transfer when they have what they want (I keep it going for several weeks (or months if need be) until it shows at least 2 x my sharing ratio. Sovereign? in quite a while - with a 120 point limit per day, it's going to be some time before I can rack up the needed 10,000 points or thereabouts to move up from generalissimo, but as I keep saying, it's just fun really.

    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".

    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.

    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 .

    here's another clue: go to this directory C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\BitComet\torrents pick a torrent for testing. open the XML file that has the same name as the torrent. in version 1.41, when i unselect a file, the xml element "\\Bitcomet\FileList\FileEntry" will have an attribute priority="-1" in version 1.42, when i unselect a file, the xml element "\\Bitcomet\FileList\FileEntry" will have an attribute priority="-4294967295" in version 1.42, as long as bitcomet doesn't get restarted, it will still remember the file selections. i'm guessing when it restarts, somewhere in the program is reading the xml file and looking for possible values of "-1" or "1" or "2" etc, but actual value is something else, so it just took the default which is to select the file.

    1.41 showing the same behaviour. Have to revert back on 1.40 which is working fine. 'The UnUsual Suspect', you were right: It's from the 1.41 and I understand why people not reporting it, as many of them not facing the particular case and the ones facing are like me as I was in the start thinking: someone should have already done it, but as time passed it become annoying to me so I came here. Kindly look into the matter. PS: Now using BitComect 1.40 and working perfect in regard to this bug.

    Yes, snapshots are not part of bittorrent protocol, it was something that was added by bitcomet. Here is a basic overview of how it works. If the torrent is authored by bitcomet, as the torrent is made the snapshots are developed and uploaded to bitcomet's server and identified by the torrents hash value, and each file itself is given a hash value so any other torrents containing the same file can be linked to it. When the next bitcomet user downloads this torrent the snapshots will be available to him. If a torrent was made with another client there will be no snapshots available until the first bitcomet peer completes the download, then the snapshots will be developed and uploaded and from that moment on any new bitcomet peer will have snapshots available.

    I'm sorry but CometBird hasn't been actively developed recently. It like BitComet is a freeware product developed by volunteers and was based on Mozilla Firefox source code, however the firefox developers made it very difficult to continue by releasing even minor updates as a major version number that required redoing all the work each time. Historically the major version numbers were released once every year or two but suddenly firefox began doing this every few weeks and I believe there just wasn't enough free time for the developers to continue. Of course microsoft could have easily made their msn page backwards compatible, but failed to do so... so the only thing I can suggest is you use a different home page or use a different browser. If you like cometbird then I'd go with firefox as they are very similar. ps. The developers have assured me they do have future plans for cometbird, but at the moment it's not being actively developed.

    I think the issue you report is related to the add-on "Browser UI Enhancements". Perhaps you can find an option to change to correct this problem, or worse case, disable the add-on. Or you can revert to a previous version of cometbird. Pienso que el problema del que informas está relacionado al complemento "Mejoras en la interfaz de usuario del navegador". Quizás puedas encontrar una opción para cambiar/corregir dicho probelma o, en el peor de los casos, deshabilitar el complemento - o puedes volver a una versión previa de CometBird.

    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.
