New to BitComet and a few questions (create new task)

Recommended Posts

So far so good.

Now the questions

1. How can I set it so the 'Create new bitorrent task' pop-up never comes up when I add a torrent? (I want to to use default all the time)

2. How can I remove this start page?

3. The Ad's/Banner what ever they are am guessing they have to stay? (If so is there a paid one without and ads/junk?)

4. Will this crash with 'Alot!' torrents on the go? (Big Sized torrents (Say 200gb each and about 500 of them on the go 24/7) utorrent/bittorrent just could not handle this one bit!)


Edit = my Username was Xencored not gxencored >.> could this be changed also. Thanks

Edit again = Looks like this is not the torrent client for me :( I added ten torrents in one go and it crashed. Ten! Shame

These are very easy settings to make, but first you should know that what you're trying to do is very bad for bittorrent. This is about file sharing and unless you have some super computer on a commercial type internet connection you should never run so many tasks, for every byte of data you download you're expected to upload a byte back to other peers. There are no residential connections that can run the number of tasks you''re wanting to run without making you a very bad peer, often referred to as a "leech" who takes but doesn't give and the bittorrent protocol is designed to not allow this. If you don't upload, your download speed will slow to a crawl and if all your upload bandwidth is maxed out, your communications will be so slow that other peers will assume you're either not interested in trade, or unable and you'll be ignored. Some trackers will ban such a peer too.

As for bitcomet, it has no ads, what you're calling ads is other free services offered by the bitcomet team and it can be easily turned off.

If you decide you want to learn and stick around we'll help you with the settings and teach you how to run torrents efficiently and become a positive member of the file sharing community by running a responsible number of tasks proportionate with your internet connection speed.

Now than! Thank's for the reply. I never anything about not seeding (in fact I seed 1.5 on most torrents) I also have two seedboxs on commercial servers. Abit shocked you jumped the gun and thought I was a pure leecher! But than again with what ive said I leech I would also think the same I guess.

I like bitcomet but it can't handle the many torrents I have running (the only one so far is deluge but that has some speed issues)

it's not a matter of being a leech, it's having the upload bandwidth to support a number of tasks that your suggesting running. If you're running on a commercial server you can obviously run more tasks than a residential connection can handle, but one of the details we require when requesting support is info about your internet connection. It's all spelled out in the topic titled "READ THIS before posting".

When comparing torrent clients if all you want to do is run torrents and nothing more you really should be doing it on Linux, there are several good clients that are designed for seedbox use. BitComet's strong point is that it has successfully mixed cross protocol downloading, something no one has ever managed before so even if you're trying to download a dead torrent with no seeders, in some cases you can complete the download with bitcomet when no other client could, then seed the torrent to the rest of the swarm and revive a dead or dying torrent. Another advantage of Bitcomet is it being the first major windows client to offer a 64bit version. This is especially useful if you want to use extremely large disc cache. This might be helpful in running large numbers of tasks, but I still recommend you only download one or two at a time and if you want to keep a large number seeding that shouldn't be a problem. Besides traditional bittorrent sources, bitcomet can download the data from emule, http/ftp, bitcomets own proprietary LTseed network, or even from a different bittorrent swarm with some or all of the same data. This cross-protocol downloading gives bitcomet an advantage, but it's not designed to run hundreds of downloading tasks, no client is. What you can try if you want a very basic windows client that only runs torrents is try utorrent version 1.61, that was the last version (I believe) before bittorrent inc took over and it was very stable. They won't help you find old versions but you can find them on 3rd party websites.

Aye I run deluge on my seedbox's (linux)

Sorry about not reading the 'read me'

2) What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)?

DSL 100mb/100mb

3) Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What make and model are each one of them? Have you forwarded your port?

Yes all set up.

4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem.

Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected.

Far many to list!

5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use? Is your Windows 32 bit or 64 bit?

Windows 8 64bit Comodo firewall custom mode

Yea the 64bit is the reason I gave this one a go like you said the large disk cache.

Think ive found one qBittorrent seem to handle the mass torrents (so far anyway)

And thanks for your input. and I defo sugest bitcomet to my mates.

100Mb/s upload bandwidth would allow you to run even more than 20 torrents at a time, without having any of them "bottle-necked" on the upload stream.

I'm not sure if it's something in the 64bit version that doesn't work OK or perhaps a particular combination of the BC client + your OS settings that trigger the crashes, but I've been running since long several dozens of torrents simultaneously, without any issues.

My tasklist has been for a very long time somewhere between 800-900 tasks out of which, at many times I had more than 100 tasks running at the same time.

Of course, the trick is that the great majority of the active ones are from private trackers, therefore I can afford to leave all of them running at the same time, without any perceptible cost on the total upload bandwith at any time.

So, I'm not speaking here about managing upload bandwidth (as I don't have a 100Mb/s upload connection) but BitComet has definitely been able to handle for me, for years, up to almost 200 simultaneously running tasks, without any crashes on a rather old (6 years now) computer, with 2GB RAM, 2GHz CPU and while using other applications on the PC, at the same time.

As I said, I don't know if there is a bug somewhere in the 64 bit Win 7 version, that gets perhaps triggered in a certain specific context, but for me on Win XP, this never occured so far.
