Anarki Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 (edited) Well in fact I love BitComet. I have heard all the rumours about it and everything but I always stood by it. I know quite much about torrents and their clients in general so its not hard to tell most accusations are false. But I stopped at version 0.70 thanks to the (at the time) unstable rewrite of BitComet. And I have used 0.70 ever since. I mean i did try a newer version once (maybe 1.00) and I was dissapointed becouse none of the "new features" worked as they were supposed to and all around it wasnt as high quality as i had expected. But i followed the forum progress, but at some point the forum get heavily lost into some bizarre layout and I stopped following even. Until yesterday when I figured id check back here, and i mean jesus christ this client seems to have came back guns blazing? Forums are back? A faq for all features exists? with images even?? And stuff works? I couldnt believe my eyes. Immedietly I got the urge to get a more modern, cutting edge, client but I am hesistant to install it for 3 reasons: 1. Third party software. Back in the days, after the rewrite, BitComet would install a third party advertising program who scanned the applications installed and notified of updates. Is this gone now? I am not talking of being able to disable its usage - I dont want it installed at all. 2. Does the new features really work now? Last time i checked, around 1.00, screenshots of videos just redirected to an advertising page, long time seeds had problems with corruption (and wouldnt ban the users sending corrupted data) http download would sometimes leave the donloaded files corrupted. etc. Are theese problems fixed? 3. Does the "report to tracker" stuff work theese days? It sending STOP command when torrent is stopped and COMPLETE when only the whole torrent is complete not just selected? And it sends to correct up/down data to tracker? And that it identfy not with a browser anymore on first try? (the hybrid mode) And thanks for upholding the support for this client after all the hating! I thought (rightfully) that we lost you to the east forever! :) thanks for any repsonse :) Edited November 2, 2009 by Anarki (see edit history) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
