    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.

    To everyone concerned about CometID, yes it's down, this happens sometimes with websites just like it does with your personal computer, errors occur and need to be fixed. Large commercial websites like Google and Amazon have many backup servers running and staff on duty 24/7 to fix problems, but BitComet being a free service is maintained by volunteers and it will be fixed as soon as someone on the development team has the time to fix it. I have notified them of the outage and I expect it will be up and running by monday, if not sooner. In the mean time you can continue to use BitComet, it will still work as good as any other bittorrent client and only some of it's more advanced features like LTseed snapshots, search for mirrors etc will be effected by the outage.

    How to add a screenshot to your post (simplified version) Hello to all, Here, I'll try to explain, in a very simple manner, the option of how to upload and include a screenshot in your post. Once we see the image that we wish to capture, press "Alt" and "Impr pant", at the same time. (That's the "Print Screen" key, on an English keyboard.) This will take an image of the active window and copy it to the Clipboard. Open a blank document in MSPaint and press "Ctrl" and "v" simultaneously. This will 'paste' said image from the Clipboard to your Paint document. (If MSPaint wants to resize the document, agree. ) If you wish to edit something in the image (for example, hide/smudge your IP, highlight something, crop the margins, etc.), now is the time to do so. Afterwards, under the "File" menu, press "Save as..." (choose a name for it) in .JPG format (this saves our bandwidth...), and place it wherever you like..., your Desktop, for example. When it's time for you to include your image in your post, simply follow the picture shown below: 1. Press 'Examine' and find the desired image in your computer. 2. Press ""Attach This File". Your image's file will appear, along with its corresponding size (3.). Note: Make sure that no individual file is larger than the maximum size allowed (shown in green), and that you do not exceed your personal global upload quota (shown in blue). 4. Once you have followed step 2., place and click your cursor where you want the image to appear, and press "Add to Post". Continue to finish your post and press "Preview Post" and/or "Post New Topic". It's that simple. :)

    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

    the recommended settings will vary depending on how much ram memory you have installed. The default is to assume you have a minimal amount of ram so disc cache size is very small. By increasing you prevent excessive use of harddrive, but will use more ram memory.

    BitComet servers are experiencing issues. The problem should be solved within a few days. Meanwhile, some BitComet services, such as snapshots will not work.

    We can only help you if you provide us with details about how you have configured your version of BitComet. This strongly suggests that you have NOT configured your client properly We NEVER ask stupid questions...and, for the recod, BitComet was not available in 1996. Obvisously, on your side everything is NOT OK, otherwise your BitComet would work just as well as, for example, uTorrent (better, in fact) BitComet cannot block you. Rather than rant and complain about BitComet, why don't you tell us exactly what steps you have followed to configure your client? As you claim to have a vast history/experience in using this and other torrenting clients for almost 20 years, this should not pose any problems, right??

    Bitcomet requires a new look. It looks old and unattractive compared to other torrent downloaders with modern look on them such as utorrent, flashget, vuze. :) I hope the bitcomet team will do something about this.

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

    Please add a dark theme as an option since we use large monitors nowadays to greatly reduce the eye strain compare to the white theme.

    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.

    Wife texts husband at work on a cold winter's morning; "Windows frozen, won't open." Husband texts back; "Gently pour some lukewarm water over it." Wife texts back 5 minutes later; "Computer really knackered now."

    Since I posted, I've found out that there was a bug in the last MS update for Windows 8 and 10 details here I don't use either of the ISPs mentioned but I thought it worth passing along

    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 is why it's important to provide accurate info so the developers can know which changes to look at. No one reported this during the 1.41 release, and now we have one member saying the bug is present in 1.41 and another that says it's not. My duties are limited to running this forum, but hopefully development will issue a fix for this soon, keep at eye out at bitcomet.com for a new stable or beta release and let us know if it works for you.

    Cassie, I have no problem logging in/out of comet ID and stats show the only day in march that wasn't working was the 6th, all other days show points earned which indicates it was only down for one full day. Cassie, yo no tengo problemas inciando/cerrando en Comet ID y las estadísticas muestran que el único día en marzo que no estaban funcionando fue el día 6 del presente. Los demás días, muestra que se obtuvieron puntos, lo cual indica que sólo estuvo caído un día entero.

    Interesting idea, but I'm not sure about how to do this with the tools you're using. If you speak Mandarin you can ask your question in Bitcomet's chinese forum and may get a response from one of the developers. You may be able to do something similar using commandline scripts like DOS batch files. You can display a list of commandline switches by opening a command prompt and going to your install folder and typing bitcomet --help There is a command for opening torrents from a link, I believe it's... bitcomet --url arg Exit Bitcomet... bitcomet --exit There is a resume command that may open bitcomet from system tray, but you'd have to confirm this... bitcomet --resume and there is a command to return it to tray bitcomet --tray Beyond this I probably cannot be much help, but I'll leave the topic open in case anyone else has a suggestion.

    Hi, I'm using BitComet 1.29 with Windows XP SP3 on a FTTC 80Mb/s connection, and use PeerBlock 1.2 (r693). I use Windows firewall, and currently no antivirus. I have no problems at all downloading or uploading, in fact my downloads and my uploads are amazingly fast. The problem I'm having is that my BitComet client can't sign in to CometID, and in the small bottom left hand box says ''Unable to sign in CometID at this time''. I've been using my BitComet client for a few days now after a few weeks break, but this time when I launched the client I didn't notice if it signed in to CometID straight away, it was only the next day or a couple of days afterwards when I noticed it wasn't signing in. I use Firefox as my main browser, and I understand that BitComet uses Internet Explorer components, so I launched IE (8) to make sure there were no problems with it they may affect BitComet in any way, and IE was fine, and connected to web pages perfectly. I've signed in to this forum without problems with the same id, and can also sign in to my CometID accounts page without a problem. From the above posts I see that that others have had this problem before, but with there being no recent posts relating to this I am wondering if it is a server problem this time, or perhaps something at my end. I've uploaded more than 100GB in this last few days and would be sad to lose the score for it. Thanking you in anticipation for any advice.

    I apologize for not being an expert on MPCstar player, perhaps another member here can give you a more definite answer, but I did find out that VLC player can do this using the context menu or with keyboard shortkeys, you can even customize the exact speeds you want to use. https://www.vlchelp.com/controlling-playback-speed-vlc-media-player/

    You've posted this phrase three times and violated forum rules by reporting false emergencies. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you do not understand english so perhaps you would like to visit our chinese forum? BitComet的中国论坛 http://www.cometbbs.com/ We consider false reports a serious violation. Our staff cannot help members if we have to investigate emergencies that don't exist and if it continues we will have no choice but suspend your account.

    This is not directly related to bitcomet which requires an open connection to the internet. By installing router/s in your system you have installed a private network and you need to be able to route incoming connections to the proper computer for any p2p filesharing to work efficiently. Alternatively you can connect your computer directly to a modem and none of this would be necessary, but if you want to have a home network you'll need to learn how to administrate it or hire someone to do it for you. I can help direct you in the right direction to find the info you need, but without having access to your equipment I can't set it up for you. Here is a guide for setting up your first router... http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/BitComet.htm Since you have a second router your destination IP address would be that of your BT hotspot, not that of your computer. If you get this part setup it may be possible to have bitcomet open the port on your hotspot router using uPnP, if not you'll have to log into that device and forward the connections on bitcomets port to your computers IP address, this way any incoming connection on your bitcomet port will be directed from your first router to the second router, then to your computer. It's also wise to setup a static IP address on your computer or it could be necessary to repeat these steps when your computer is restarted.

    Hi , i have problem that when i m downloading any file bittcomet downloading speed is vey slow

    Cassie, the cap he's referring to limits the total gross download and upload. Usually when you reach the limit that either shut you off or make your service so slow that you can barely send an email. Speed caps are different, they are something we all have to deal with. Happy Birthday dungcat ps. I haven't been cold at all since ditching my cap... although I've been known to be a hothead :P

    Hi. If you are wondering why the screenshots don't instantly appear, it takes time to download them, or if you are using an IP filter it could be blocking the server. Also, if you are the first bitcomet peer with the option enabled there will be no screenshots available until the download completes. If you are referring to screenshots provided with the torrent that you're trying to view, you will have to finish downloading them before they can be viewed. Hola. Si te estás preguntando por qué las capturas de pantalla no aparecen de forma instantánea, te diré que tardan un poco en descargarse, o si estás usando un filtro de IPs, puede que éste esté bloqueando el servidor. También, si eres el primer par de BitComet con la opción habilitada, no habrán capturas de pantalla disponibles hasta que la descarga finalice. Si, por el contrario, te estás refiriendo a que estás intentando visualizar las capturas de pantalla que vienen incluidas con el torrent, tendrás que terminar de descargarlas, antes de poder verlas.

    Yes, providing more information, otherwise I can only guess at what you may have done. Without full disclosure from you I can't be sure if this info will help or even apply to you but you can try this... Stop using magnet links and download and open the torrent before opening, or if you use magnet links allow bitcomet enough time to quarry the file names before you initiate the download. To use the file with no extension, just add the .rar on the end of the file but you'll need to enable viewing of file extensions in windows first. I posted a guide on doing this in the forum many years ago and you should have no problem finding it. You can also open files without extension in a program like winrar by selecting the option to "show all files" when browsing for a file to open. A file without an extension will work fine, the extension's only job is to identify what's in the file so your system will know what software to use when you open it.

    There is also quite a lot of overhead associated with bittorrent, such as exchanging piecemaps with every other member of the swarm, whether or not you actually swap anything with them. It's never been clear whether any or all of this is included in the term, "downloaded".

    to the forums! Thank you for the kind words, on behalf of the entire Staff, too. It's a pleasant change from the usual... erm... less-than-optimal conversations. :rolleyes: Also, congratulations on being 70 years young!! That's the perfect attitude, and is exactly what my Mom used to say, whenever someone asked how old she was. :) Happy torrenting!!

    No, we can't help her. She's in China. We're not. Cassie's in Spain, Vasy's in Romania, I'm in Texas. We don't have any more connection with the whole VIP thing than you do, and have exactly as much administrative control over it as you do. We're all volunteers, but our time is not yours to claim, or to tell us what we should be doing with it. We can delete your posts or flip you off the forum altogether for rudeness, but that's it. Shouldn't have been announced till it was ready? We all agree with you and have told them so. Wasn't up to us, still isn't.

    Good point, utorrent does this too, and takes even longer to do the hash check from my experience. I think if the smaller tasks were hashchecked first, it would allow the downloading to resume, then the large tasks could be hashchecked after the small ones have resumed downloading.
