  1. 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".
  2. This is basically a Windows permissions problem, not really a BitComet problem. You'll need to find out why that folder's permssions keep resetting to "Read-Only".
  3. We've been urging BitComet to remove the Torrent Sites list, for a long time. A casual look at it reveals that it is many years out of date. It still shows Mininova, for example, and Demonoid, sites which are both shuttered. When the list WAS being maintained by anyone, updates caused lots of complaints as somebody's favorite site was removed. For FIreFox you should be able to simple delete any entry you're having problems with. You don't need ATComet involved at all. Just go directly to the site and bookmark it.
  4. I can't figure out what it's supposed to do either.
  5. BitComet is just a file transfer program. It doesn't alter or transform the files it downloads. Whatever you get out is whatever was put in. That said, you should study up on the format. .cbx files are just images in an archive. .cbz == zip archive. .cbr == RAR archive. You can probably just change the extension and feed it to your reader.
  6. Look under Options -> Advanced -> and see if bittorrent.hash_check_on_finished is set to "TRUE". If so, try setting it to "FALSE" and see if that solves the crashing problem.
  7. This error will occur if you are creating a new torrent and forgot to re-download the .torrent file you uploaded and seed with that one instead of the original one you created.
  8. Use the manual hash check to indicate whether you've got the partial download in the right place (or are pointing to the right directory as its download directory). The hash check should take some time to complete, then the "% Completed" column should show what part you've downloaded already. Just start the task. But if the hash check goes quickly and the % completed says 0% at the end, you're pointing to the wrong place.
  9. VIP acceleration has been very problematical. Unfortunately, you should expect this kind of thing when you use it. We do our best to warn people off, but there are always some who don't get the word.
  10. If no one has rated the torrent, then there will be 0 votes, and no stars.
  11. Aww, we have to start wearing goggles when we download now?!?!
  12. Unfortunately, your area has a history of it, with undersea cables being damaged and the like. You should scan the news to see if something like this has been reported, and the prognosis for getting it repaired.
  13. Well, no, that's NOT weird. Normal web surfing and downloading are coming from dedicated servers. Bittorrent is not. Bittorrent is coming from peers -- people just like you with computers like yours and connections like yours, and your speed is always dependent on how many of them there are, where they are, and whether you can connect reliably to them -- which is different for every one. This is the single biggest factor affecting your speed. It's also the one that is constantly variable, and the one that you can't do anything about.
