  1. First of all, this isn't up to me. This is a community support forum which I have been running for nearly 11 years, but the developers of BitComet rarely post here, they pay the bills, and leave us to help each other, which is common with most freeware. MPCStar is another freeware product that one or more members of the team developed, along with several other apps over the past 11 years, some were popular, others weren't, and many have been abandoned simply because like all of us, we have bills to pay and although it's nice to give something to the community, it doesn't pay the bills, so time
  2. I'm still a Marshall ranking in at 32590 last I logged in, but I don't think the rank is accurate, meaning I don't think it's centrally tabulated, rather just ranking everyone that has logged in this session and appears it might reset each time the server has to be restarted. This is just conjecture, but it seems that your score is hard data, but the ranking score is soft data that is collected anew each time the server starts. BTW, nice to see you again, and even though we don't currently need more beta testing, you are more than welcome to stick around and help members.
  3. is this discussion about using multiple network adapters in the same computer simultaneously? This has become possible since Vista. I experimented with it using both wifi and ethernet on the same router and could get LAN speeds upto 1.300mb/s, 1000 ethernet and 300mb/s wifi N, but pointless for internet connections available then, or even today.
  4. Good call Rhubarbfian I wasn't aware isp's were blocking sites at dns servers, seems like a silly method since it's so easy to defeat. Maybe they are complying with law in a way that doesn't upset their customers more than necessary. If they had blocked it in their hardware, then you'd have to poxy you tracker communications.
  5. I found this with a google search https://www.techenclave.com/community/threads/is-desitorrents-com-accessible-from-india.177469/
  6. also read the tracker rules and make sure users from India are allowed, some private trackers have very specific rules and many block entire countries
  7. if you want to invite me to the tracker I could investigate, or you could read their rules and may find the answer.
  8. I notified development, but just so you are prepared, if it's not fixed by the weekend, it may not be fixed until next week, going by past experience.
  9. unless there is something unusual with your system, bitcomet will open your port in windows firewall when it starts.
  10. Thank you, a lot of hard work went into re translating from chinese english into international english. Most of the credit for the grammar we have Cassie to thank, even though English isn't her original language, she understand it better than most. The technical details were a done by a joint effort of myself, grey wizard, and Kluelos, whom we fear may no longer be with us. We represented distinctly different parts of the world and ou collaboration helped render a text that was easy for all to understand. Yes, BitComet is arguably the most advanced client in the world, and as far as I kn
  11. Thanks for sharing, but please keep in mind that it can be a very bad idea to add random trackers to a torrent. You only need one working tracker, any more will cause bitcomet and your internet connection to do a lot of unnecessary work, and if you add trackers that aren't "open", you'll also have to register the torrent with them, otherwise you'll only annoy the tracker admin, many of whom regularly change tracker urls in an attempt to stop this so their servers don't get hit with thousands of requests repeatedly, for a torrent that doesn't even exist on their server. When making a torr
  12. there are virtual chinese keyboards you can use, but I only speak to a few in the development team who are willing to use english. Although the chinese are taught english in school, it's mostly written english and it's very different than any other english dialect, but is usually enough to get by in commerce, but I'm sue we've all giggled at chinese products that provide incomprehensible documentation. . Bitcomet's has always been good with documentation, but our forum team has rewritten it so it's more fluent to most international members. Also, unlike other torrent clients bitcomet doe
  13. As I mentioned BitComet is not designed to run multiple instances within the same windows account. You could probably figure a way to work around that, but as I mentioned, there will be conflicts. I've never tried to find a work a round, but even if you are able to do so, you won't be able to get all the features like comet ID and emule plugin to work properly. If you want to run them one at a time using different task lists this can be easily done, but if you want to run two instances simultaneously, then you are on you own. I'm sure it could be done, just not sure what features will or won't
  14. I fixed the signature problem, seems a recent forum update disabled signatures, we've had a lot of small issues like that to deal with. By default bit comet stores task info in "app data", but this can be changed in advanced settings if you want the portable version to have it's own task list.
  15. BitComet has always made a portable version, it's packaged in a .zip file and once extracted you can run it without installing, but I don't recommend running more than one instance at a time as it may cause conflicts. You can download all releases from the link in my signature.
  16. also read the first link in my signature and keep in mind that we are all volunteers and if we spend our time typing the same questions every time someone asks for help, we wouldn't have time to help anyone. It's members responsibility to read the rules and provide the basic info if they want help, otherwise you are likely to get replies that don't apply to you.
  17. Anyone can start such a thread, in fact you just did. I'll move it to the lounge and you can entertain us with funny stuff, and hopefully others will join in. I'll do my part by keeping it family friendly.
  18. I can confirm that site isn't working. They probably don't allow download managers or perhaps they are mistaking BitComet for a bot. If this is an image host site they may only allow web browsers to access their files. I'll test a few things and see if there is a work-a-round, but most likely you won't be able to use a download manager with that site unless you can get the site administrator to approve it's use.
