  1. I actually said to use a fixed LAN IP number AND set the port to match that
  2. For the Forum - you had to register to post For the appp - go here (but you could have found it in the 'help' file):
  3. That sounds like no-one is actually sharing the files or you aren't getting the tracker info. I have mine set to automatically update trackers, using this auto list (BC 1.8) However, the problem could be the listening port: set your computer to a fixed ip number and set the router to forward to that IP a block of ports (Any block over 10,000 will do - I use a block of 10) and set the port number in BC to fall within that block. Also make sure that BC isn't blocked by the firewall
  4. We have to wait for someone to feed the hamster
  5. Yes - you do have the same problem (as well as posting in a thread that isn't relevant) and the same answer applies. THE SERVER IS DOWN
  6. Your problem is totally unconnected to the OP in the thread - but the server is down - that has been pointed out elsewhere
  7. Check the router again. It's possible that BT did an online 'upgrade'. Also, make sure that you are NOT using DHCP between router and computer - in network setup, properties, set the computer to have a fixed ip (in the lines of 192,168,0,### and manually set the gateway and the DNS servers. In the router set ports to a range of values (10 is usually enough) linked to the IP address you gave the computer
  8. First of all, this is NOT a bug in the clent Second, the server is down and no points can be gained - this does NOT affect downloading speeds - just the ranking system
  9. No - the only difference is you don't gain any activity points. Everything else will work as it should. If you are being throttled, check your settings - use a fixed IP number for the computer and make sure that the router has the ports for that IP address open. (note - the IP is for the internal network - computer <>router and NOT for the router <>internet)
  10. You are necro posting (the original post is over a year old). Please start a new thread for new problems. However, it's possible the server is down (this happens from time to time) and all any of us can do is wait for someone to feed the hamster
  11. Do NOT post urls for any file sharing sites here
  12. I never really paid attention to the balloon but I think you may find that this is a MS configuration rather than a BC one. I don't think there's any way to alter that in BC itself. By the way, you do know that the current version is 1.79 (and I wouldn't call a different font a 'bug' as it doesn't affect the operation of the app)
  13. Do NOT double post (besides which this thread is 5 years opld and the original problem was nothing to do with your issue)
  14. Check in the bottom right of the task bar. It is probably still running although it's not on screen.
  15. Are you sure that happened in the past 24 hours as the current version is 1.79? Having said that, have you done a disk clean/defrag recently? I'd recommend Puran Utilities (it's free) Also, there are no guarantees as to smooth operations on a beta OS. That is one of the joys of beta testing - you are never sure what will be problematic, so support is not normally available (MS did warn you). Probems incurred are supposed to be reported back to MS
  16. First of all, you do realise that you posted to a thread that is six YEARS old? It's always better to start a fresh thread as the problems (and solutions) from 6 years ago are normally no longer relevant. However, there does seem to be a delay on auto-logging at the start of the app. The 'cure' is to try manually starting it rather than letting it keep auto-connecting. I think this is more a problem at the server end rather than the app itself. Having said that, are you sure that your log-in details are correct?
  17. I don't know what you mean - sorry. As I said, if you want to download from a web page, then you set it up in Options > Integration which will allow you to download from the site via Bitcomet
  18. I'm not sure what you mean. If it's if Bitcomet can be used to download from a website, go to Options > Integration and set it there for your browser (Chrome and Direfox need an extension but the links are there. IE has its own setup.
  19. I am simply pointing out that your settings are ridiculously low - there's no point in continuing this thread
  20. There are a lot of possible causes - check this website for possible repairs You could also try to google for 'runtime error 216' for other suggestions
  21. Will you please listen carefully YOUR DOWNLOAD SETTINGS ARE RIDICULOUSLY LOW
  22. All anyonwe can do is to advise you and the advice is to stop running at ridiculously low speeds As you seem bent on totally ignoring that advice, there is no point in continuing And as a fyi - what is happening is NOT a bug
  23. You don't quite seem to understand. YOU altered default settings and you also have restricted downloads to a maximum of 10. That is down to you and NOT the program.
  24. It's working exactly as it's supposed to - you are restricted by your own settings from downloading any more than 10 torrents no matter how many you have queued for autostart. It will not pause any of the files running even if there is no movement from the seeder so long as they remain active
