  1. So basically vBulletin has decided they don't like loli, I don't either... but the fact is they're not breaking any laws. They paid for their license and because someone doesn't like what they decided to do with their board they revoked their license. It's not in their liscence agreement at all. That's pretty sad to me. I mean just think if this was a vBulletin site it could get shut down because they don't like what you guys are making. In fact vbulletin said the DC network is based on outdated protocals and Crise and Lee smell. Oh and merry christmas... This snow is killin my PC. Oh, btw being software developers yourselves what's your guys take on this? Obviously not everone is using Apex in a way you would approve of... so what do you think?
  2. Double clicking downloads to 'Force attemp' or..

    I would so ban if I saw you hammering me like that. Do you have any idea how annoying that is?
  3. Need help please anyone

    HA! See! This is why I asked for a Force Re-Check Oh so long ago! Since essentially although completly different... Apex downloads in segments just like Bittorrent. Force Recheck is In my opinoin very much needed. Or even a need for DC to check the file once it is finished with the original TTH.
  4. vBulletin Revokes License for moral reasons...

    It's not that bad when it's not on my screen... It feels like I'm watching a video encoded in h.264 though while I'm typing... >.< It's festive so I'm all for it. Also, I apprecaite your response. I think I ran here to spread the news cause I felt like perhaps this forum runs on the same lines although not nearly as sinful. Imagine IPB pulling the plug on your license because they don't like what you make and distribute... I believe someone put it best when they said, Chevy doesn't repo your car when you drunk drive. That's up to the police and law enforcement.
  5. Force rechecking of a file

    I'd like to see Apex DC recheck the file you're currently downloading. Recently I've been having problems with torrent seeders going dead while I'm at the last 5% of the file. So what I've been doing is downloading the rest on DC by swaping the file I've been downloading with the one dc creates when I start a download. However Apex doesn't seem to recognize that the file is 95% done instead it starts the file from the begining even after I've switched it. Here's the thing, it doesn't seem to mess up the file either cause I opened it in Zion++ and zion rechecks the file and showed it was at 96% (+1% from apex (this is from the bittorrent blocks I needed being in the forward section of the file)) when in apex it showed it was still at 20% of the file. Had apex detected the missing blocks as if they were missing pieces of segments like Zion++ I would have been able to finish the download and go back to bt and seed for though ten other poor saps that the seed bailed out on. Now, I'm not sure if I'm missing something and it's in the settings. I did look but not awafuly hard. I'm not sure if it's a bug (doubtful) of if it's something you didn't want to add. But I'd be ok with even a "Force Recheck" option like utorrent has. Zion++ seems to do this with out asking but it also seems to take up a lot of resources when I don't want it too. :-\ I look forward to a response and I hope I was not to confusing. :angry:
  6. TV shows series downloaded by name

    How about this... A right click option on the queue "Download In order" like you suggested... The queue would start from the top and work it's way down. Auto filling in the Priority. And if the queue then had an option like the Favorite hubs list does to "move up" and "move down". This would still require some sort of work by the user but it would accomplish what you want. I was thinking it would work something like this... Jack and Jill ep 1 Priority = Highest (1) Jack and Jill ep 2 Priority = Highest (2) Jack and Jill ep 3 Priority = Highest (3) Jack and Jill ep 4 Priority = High (1) Jack and Jill ep 5 Priority = High (2) Jack and Jill ep 6 Priority = High (3) Jack and Jill ep 7 Priority = Normal (1) and so fourth. But instead of downloading right away perhaps the program could have something neat like a hault. Where the files aren't paused but rather waiting for the ones on time to finish. Much like the files wait when you've got to many downloads going. :-\
  7. TV shows series downloaded by name

    The only problem I see with that is that once shows reach 100 eps DC sorts them wrong. Example DC sorts it like this Naruto - 10 Naruto - 100 Naruto - 101 And so fourth. The solution is quite simple though.. You just add a third zero Naruto - 010 Naruto - 011 Naruto - 012 and problem is solved.
  8. made wallpaper for me

    Nice and clean. =) glad you didn't decide to go overboard. =)
  9. Lol, I got kicked today...

    So I never really get kicked from any hubs I share 200+ gigs of anime and music... anyways... I'm in a hub and the op who is a veteran op kicked me for using apex. What struck me as funny and slightly amusing was this... 4· Allowed clients are NMDC, DC++ (min .601), fulDC, DC GUI and DC GUI-qt with tag. Limiting (client or 3rd party app) is prohibited. (PWDC and StrgDC are allowed only in public with proper tags) So... The client apex is based off and the client that apex is replacing are allowed but not the apex itself... I dunno why this struck me as a bit funny... and I'm sure I'll get like one post in this topic.... and it'll probably just be a sympathy post... but yeah... I got a raise and a promotion today too... :stuart:
  10. [Bug][0.2.2] Starting error

    I'm willing to bet you could just buy a new pc better than that one for less than 100 bucks... hell I saw someone selling a p4 ht for $75.
  11. usually I don't go into big hubs as the more users the more strain the client puts on the memory... While not a big deal I still like to use as litle memory and cpu usage as possible.... I noticed today when I entered a huge 10000 user hub that not only was ApexDC the FASTEST client I've ever seen to load hub users lists but it also seemed to use the same amount of memory as it would for a regular hub. Idling me at about 15,000K instead of 30,000k I've seen with other clients.... I'm not sure if this is strngdc's doing or yours but Nice guys... nice. Oh, and can I edit your apex icon for my avatar here? I wouldn't want to be disrepsectful or anything... I just wanted to add a little color and maybe a glare or something. :-\
  12. Lol, I got kicked today...

    Lol, I saw you arguing... haha... Funny thing is he acussed me of emulating with apex when I switched clients.... then I pointed out that apex emulates DC++ .694 and not .674. Honestly though with all due respect to him, if I'm gonna be caught faking, it's not gonna be by someone of his calibur. As of yet, only one op there has caught me faking tags and that was crazy/alana, and that's because I challanged her to do it. Honestly though they have a good community there... Eh... it's their public hub so I don't see why they were being all nazi about it. If they want to put the min share up and stuff fine... but there was no need to ban MS clients there... funny how the user count went from 2K+ to like 900. I don't always like MS clients just because they make my up queue a pain in the ass to go through but in general I think they're the wave of the future. I just believe that in general there needs to be a way to better handle MS clients because it does take away from users trying to get slots for stuff with regular old DC. Of course it doesn't help to with all the jerks out there that choose to be complete leaches... As far as limiting goes... I find it bs to ban clients with limiting right off the bat... For one, limiting clients can Almost always be detected when they're limiting... and second, limiting isn't always bad. Responsible users that want clients of a different flavor than the ugly standard of DC and fuldc and such shouldn't be limited. But I guess that's just because most of the clients I've seen with cool customizations and ground-breaking stuff choose to go with MS as afterall... it is the wave of the future. Also, yes many of the ops there themselves use Apex, LS, XP, Akker, and even a beta tester here. Finally, to be perfectly honest... I'm a share whore. I'm one of the last people you should get mad at for using an MS client. I almost never download anything off of DC unless it's extremly rare anime. I get almost everything off of BT now because it's just easier to get stuff from people faster... There's really no waiting. I go to DC to spread stuff like new releases to that community (I'm almost always the first to share certain new releases). I honestly appreciate it when someone slot begs for something really hard to find and tells me they intend to share it. I've shared over a tb and downed only 200 gigs. Most of that was music and a few rare items.
  13. ApexDC with GTSDll

    Oh I am so getting this. ^_^
  14. Request: Up Queue search

    I'd like to see apex add a search function for the upload queue. Often time before I delete a file I'd like to know if someone wanted it before I get rid of it. A simple search string would be perfect. Also, it would make it easier for me to grant slots for specific files as all I'd need to do is see who wants it then with out having to go through a big list. =)
  15. Import Features

    I believe that's why he wants an import tool...
  16. I want more chat features

    Yeah, once you tell it to log stuff you can open the log in notepad which has a "find" option....
  17. [Crash][0.2.1] Cause unknown

    Oh dear. :D
  18. Smart Hashing

    I don't agree. What happens if the folder is on another drive and the file becomes damaged in the transfer? Then the user trying to get that file would end up with a botched file.
  19. Smart "on request" tth

    This would be like the Old DC before there was hasing. The problem is that this would cause a problem for other users and would likely get Apex users banned on the spot. When attempting to access un unhashed file The peer would get a message stating File not available. Most ops will ban you on site for this.
  20. Force rechecking of a file

    Well see I originally thought this couldn't be done swapping files back and fourth till someone told me they had tried it. I spend hours telling them it would damage the file. I even argued that it would screw up the tth's but it doesn't. Once I tried it I was amazed. I've since done it a few times and when I bring it back over to BT for seeding I tell Utorrent to force recheck the file (It assumes I'm at X% wherever I left off until I tell it to recheck.) and it starts seeding. Then I'm everyone's unknown hero. From what I understand though, as soon as a batch torrent starts if it has any block from one of the files it makes the file whole and fills in the pieces. My utorrent shows my pieces in segments and shows what parts of the file I have and makes it look kinda like a Disk defragment. When I brought the same file over to zion++, zion showed the file in download queue as if I had downloaded a partial of the 8th segment out of 10. I guess the bottom line is that it works. For some reason zion detects the file and downloads the missing segments as if I had just not been able to download them. Like I said Apex starts from the begining and never even took note of the rest of the file. Also here is another thing to ponder. I've watched files I was currently downloading on bt before. As long as I had the forward section of the file. it would start and as soon as I got to a missing data block the screen would go black. So this tells me that the file must be in some kind of order. :-\
  21. Upload band splitting

    It has to do with the the connection they're making to you. Some people depending on their location, their ISP and other various factors just wont be able to make a good connection. Unless you're talking about a forceful connection where the other users were previously getting good speed from you and then the other guy got connected and started taking speed away from them. I've had that happen before. I suppose a Speed cap per peer could be implemented. but imo it would do more harm than good. Say like this I have 90k line, and I cap individual peers to 30k a peice with three slots. You would think three users with 30k a piece right? What if one of them is on a slow line? So instead it's 30/30/5 and I'm only using 65kbs the rest of my bandwidth is then wasted and I HATE to waste my bandwidth... Trying to reach the 1 tb mark by the end of the month. :)
  22. Different Share for different HUBs

    That sounds rather difficult to implement. :-\
  23. ApexDC++ Official Support Hub - Discussion

    I'm not worried. Just dissappointed. :thumbsup: I fixed the probelm myself but I was pointing out to someone the prob with magnet links opening without users lists...
  24. ApexDC++ Official Support Hub - Discussion

    I'm guessing it's because it's a forward slash.... "/" doesn't appear to be affected. I went back in and it kicked me again when I tried to use ":\" because I tend to type smiley faces alot. :thumbsup: It's almost impossible to get help with a picky bot like that. Perhaps if "\" is still unaccetable sending a warning instead of a twenty minute kick.
  25. user icon flags like old Xion++ had...

    Well if you can turn the flags on your can always drag the column infront for the users column.
