please add UDP tracker support
i love bittornado, but a few people continue to post UDP tracker torrents (and i have no choice but to use those) - and i've had to use utorrent. which is nice, but trying to make it resume and such took me 3 tries to line it up with the right directory. also it said it was completed, but when i ran bittornado on the same torrent it came up as 99.7 or 97.something percent, and i usually run bittornado on every download to make sure it was downloaded completely properly
It probably is because the clients are different and you have some code to differentiate between each client (and that was the difference between a complete file and an incomplete file). That happened to me, so I disabled the .bt or .ut extension depending on the client. I'm still trying to figure out if BitTornado has something like that, because I only use it after the client is complete with downloading.
15 pages is a lot to read.
but i'll just voice my opinion, and you guys can ignore it if it has been mentioned.
Unicode for torrents other than English. Because I keep having to use BitComet to download Chinese torrents and i really dislike BitComet actually.
other than that, that's it.
Why not download uTorrent, because it uses very little spaceand it supports unicode without having the huge bloatware. It has a 576 kb unicode language pack.
Oh, Why not figure out a way to support many languages without having to use a large amount of disk space. uTorrent has already mastered that.
And also be prepared to have it become multi-platform, because it might have a better effect on many users.
And instead of the light indicator, why not have the progress bar have these three colors:
Red: Pieces that you do not have and are unavailable in the swarm the entire time.
White: Pieces that you do not have, but they are available in the swarm
Blue: Pieces that you have, and are available in the swarm. The darker the color, the more that peers have the piece.
Adjacent to the progress bar:
Orange Warning Sign: The swarm does not have a total of 1 complete file (Problem finishing file)
Yellow Exclamation: Firewall/no incoming connections
Green Smiley Face: The tracker is functioning properly
Black Sad Face: No peers in the swarm
