    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.

    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.

    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?

    You need to set up using a fixed IP number and set the ports in your router to forward to that port.

    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

    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've noticed that '1.48' install but I think that's more down to a bug than anything else, however, if you check on almost any installation program you will get the same message "TURN OFF ANY RUNNING SOFTWARE". Why people think that means 'any except....' I don't know: a lot of people were having problems upgrading Windows 10 for a very simple reason - THEY LEFT THE ANTI-VIRUS RUNNING

    There is a major upgrade for Windows 10 due in a couple of weeks. At the moment it's on Release Candidate 2 and is on track for a mid-March release. It's a complete rebuild of the whole system so maybe you should hold off re-installing Bitcomet until that is done

    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

    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. :)

    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

    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 feel your pain and can only tell you that Queeniequ was hired as our forum rep to communicate with the development team, but cutbacks had to be made and we no longer have a rep. I can also tell you that the vip appears to be down for at least a few weeks, and before that it seemed to work for some and not for others, so it's my guess they just don't have the funds to keep it running on the scale it would need to work worldwide, and my other contacts with the development team haven't responded, so it's possible some have moved on, but there is someone keeping the comet ID system up and running, so we haven't been abandoned. If you want to purchase VIP again, I think it would be wise to wait until there is some confirmation that it is working again. At this time that is the only advice I can offer.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    If members have any account problems or questions related to your VIP plan or ability to use it, then you MUST send a PM (private message) to queeniequ. She is our representative from the Development Team and the only person who can look up your account and fix any errors you might be having. When you message her, please include your Comet ID name and, if there was a problem with the purchase, also include your transaction number. If you have any questions on how the service works or other related questions for our Support Team, then make a post in this forum and we'll do our best to help you.

    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?
  49. 1 point
    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.
