  1. i still say that there is a problem when you want to merge folders like:

    c:\folder1\bla.txt (1 byte)

    d:\folder1\bla.txt (101 byte)

    even though those files both have the same name, these two folders cannot be easily merged without some implied actions on those files..

    Well, in one sence you are correct, but its no problem really. At least not to create the share list and display it. THe only problem here is for the downloader to know witch file he should take.

    making a merged filelist is quite easy. The conflict that you talk about here isnt really a conflict at all as the two files have different THH and thus they can just be listed as any two files (just that in this case they happen to have the same name, and virtual position).

  2. I have found on several occasions that people that have TTH issues with later versions of different clients will have them reduced by a great deal or even eliminate them completely by enabeling multi-source, I don't know why but it seems to work.

    If you could try that and let us know if it helps that would be great.

    (frankly I'm not sure why ppl still believe that tth inconsistency is because of what you share - when in fact its what you download that is causing this, rebuilding the share will not do much good then, will it? )

    :P im out of beer (almost)

  3. while i kind of agree on the wanting to use what version I want, the reason for the devs to take this kind of measure to enforce people to upgrade is because it is you own computer that is at risk.

    what do you guys say about the possibility for a hacker to download any file they choose from your computer? - would a fix to that be enough to make you upgrade?

    (not saying that something like that existed in apex of course :P ) But there were enough security issues that IMHO warranted this behaviour.

  4. as this has been discussed alot both here and on other forums, I only have one question here, and that is to the ones having this TTH issue.

    Do you have multi source disabled? (in settings / downloads / queue)

  5. just remember that we all are competing for the most lazy award :P

    we all just want to hit the 'fix-it' button and go

    btw, now I'm officialy on vacation, so now I'm even lazier than before, u have been warned :P

  6. Note to anyone else: The laziest person wins :P

    guess thats me then :P

    However, another question Toast, how do you want us to use the launchpad?

    Add new clients in the bug tracker or how do you want it handled?

  7. something like this should probably do it, not tested so it might need another tweak to make it what you want

    $To: %[userNI] From: %[myNI] $<%[myNI]> You are being TimeBanned for 2h because: TEST|<%[myNI]> !tban %[userNI] %[line:Time] TEST|$To: 'you opchat nick here' From: %[myNI] $<%[myNI]> %[userNI] are being TimeBanned for 2h because: TEST|

  8. yes, and its working very well, if you enable "old sharing interface" its a bit easier to see whats going on,

    (one slight bug still exists afaik, in the interface it shows the total share on each folder instead of the individual share, but thats just a minor bug)

    all you have to do is to give each of the shared folders the same virtual name, and your ready to go.

  9. there isnt actually much more to it than whats already written above, two things to note though

    first as you say the hashdata can not be copied, so when you load the list again in a client it will again download the tth's off a source to add it, and second, not all sources may stay in the file. You might have to find some of them again (or the client will find them for you), this is usually not a big problem, it has worked everytime I done it sofar.

    The thing to look out for is if you add duplicate entries to the queue.xml, I have no idea how different clients will handle it, so backup, backup (and save a copy too :)

    Maybe I have been lucky, but I have not had any problems merging queues (or moving queues between clients either for that matter)


  10. hey, now that would be a nice enhancement.

    I would love to get rid of the 'old' tabs and get something else. I have grown very fond of the way fulDC/AirDC/IceDC does tabs and would be really happy to see something like that but with more configuration possibilities and more 'bling bling' :stuart:

    oh, and if possible - can you make the client stop flashing like the sea in a storm when any of the hubs update topic, cos the way it is now, eww


  11. Hi guys, just thought I should mention this, im sure you already know it, but still. I am the annoying one :D

    Apex does not load the adlsearch.xml correctly from other clients or from toasts lists, it looses the IsRegExp setting, the IsForbidden setting and a few other things. It would be really cool if it would be more compatible now that it has all the other nice things in there :stuart:
