  1. so let me explain myself here if i am downloading a very popular movie like with anywhere from 10 - 80 sources it will be fine for a while but if i leave it and come back a few hours later itll have 10 or 20 sources but it will just be sitting there doing nothing so i will manually search for tth alternatives and the sources will go back up to 50 or 70 and ill have 7 segments and itll be fine then if i leave it again when come back and itll just be sitting there doing nothing again i will manually search for alts again and ill instantly have more sources and more segments. Now if it were searching for tth alternatives every 5 minutes as it is set to do i wouldn't need to manually do it and the fact that i do have to manually do it indicates that it is not automatically doing it. Am i right or wrong ? it seems pretty obvious to me that its not auto searching ? Am i missing something here guys ??

  2. I really must compliment everyone who worked on Apex 0.4.0. I ran into a lot of problems recently and had to try out a number of new and different clients like zion blue 206 & 207, zion green 216 & 217 a couple of the speed mods s11 - s15, zk++ .666, 07, and the light edition, as well as the new strong dc++2.03 all of which im sure are good clients but none suited my needs as did 0.4.0 and none of them measured up to the 0.4.0 in terms of stability, speed and reliability. So thx again folks and keep up the good work. I must also thank the ops and staff of TGO for being patient with me seeing as im a bit of a perfectionist and sometimes expect alot from clients so thanks for answering all my questions about the 0.4.0. I am still using zion blue 207 to op with on my hub and am wishing Apex would come out with an op client. I cant seem to find a client I can both op with and download with at the same time. it would be rally cool if i could just use 1 client for all my needs. Anyway thx for everything !! I really appriciate it. TYRRAM

  3. Ive found it to depend on which client ur using ive found ASCII works in zk++ but not in zion for example. But ive also found that they work fine in tags when connecting to hubs in any client but the ASCII lettering doesnt look right so would be no good in that client for communication of other kinds.

  4. I've been a mod/op on dc for some years now, and one thing strikes me as odd. Even in the virtual world of dc, where we dont meet people face to face, you still get your racists, sexists, bigots and your all round garden variety idiot. Like for instance the asswipes that floods hubs, or the so called "network" or tag wars. I mean ffs people, we are all using this great package to share and in some instances, chat to people while we wait fer our downloads. Ive been accused of being nasty and mean tempered, but hey, so what, this is not real life and its ok not to agree with someone.Dont bite the redir that feeds ya! 420 rules 4 ever. Just a thought, use it, dont use it.

    I agree with you kaizer ppl take dc way to serious sometimes I had a friend stop speaking to me recently because I told him I didnt nuch care for a certain client. The net wars are really rediculus I guess dc is a reflection of the real world as much of a dissappointment as that may be.

  5. Sorry but ...... I speak my mind. I always have but no one here wants to hear what I have to say because its negative. I didn't get any response when I said good things. Right from the very start when I said I liked the apexdc++s-12 speedmod better why ??? because IT WORKS !!! So whats the point ? I got fired as a tester I kept getting kicked off TGO for some retard reason that I shared installed progs when I wasn't I explained this to op's repeatedly who wouldn't listen etc,etc,etc. I will however say one good thing sidetrack is very helpful. I realize you guys are hard working and if some guy just criticized my work I wouldn't care for him very much but I cant lie. Every release since 0.2.0 has not worked for me and its been a disappointment thats the bottom line. the clients DON'T WORK RIGHT So criticize away. What do you want me to say when the clients DON'T WORK ? Do you want me to come on here and blow sunshine up your asses or do you want the truth ?? and I can't send bug reports or any kind of reports when the client doesn't work. THIS is the report. The apexdc++ 0.1.0 beta 2 client crashes within 60 seconds of opening it has something to do with connection to hubs at start up. When people complain to me about it I set them up with apexdc++s-15 speedmod because it DOESN'T CRASH and yes I realize its a beta but with the release of the 0.4.0 and 0.3.0 the same thing went on it wasn't crashes but other problems and they weren't betas and the speed mod releases s12 s13 s14 didn't have those problems. So some guy in Russia is taking your clients and fixing them and drastically improving them and re-releasing them and the more power to him. Because what it all comes down to is whether or not the clients WORK OR NOT. So happy, happy, joy, joy and sunshine and flowers and all that but .... the clients DON'T WORK. GET IT.

  6. Hey, I haven't been here for a while but I have to say Ive uninstalled the apex 1.0.0. beta 2 from my computer because it is impossible to use it crashes within 60 sec of opening. And of course you will all blame my system but I can assure you its not my system every other client works fine. I don't know what you guys are doing wrong but this client is just getting worse with each release. Since 0.3.0 each release is more unstable. I don't know if you are even going to listen anymore to the testers or users and maybe the dev team is surrounded by yes men, I don't know. But I do know most everyone I've talked to on dc++ hubs have little or no use for 0.5.0 or 1.0.0 beta. So thats my last word I won't even bother downloading the next release.

  7. I'm outta here for awhile folks I just wanted to thx everyone for answering all my silly questions and being patient and giving so much really useful info. I dont know if I'll be back but keep up with all the great work apex is an awesome client !!

  8. I was sure I saw a guide on the peer guardian plug in in the guides section or am I confused again ?? anyway if there isn't any maybe there should be. Wait does apex even have a peer guardian plugin ?? maybe it was ziondc that was trying to do that. anyway if apex doesn't have that maybe it should. ok well I want a peer guardian plug in and I guide to help me use it ! hows that ? (note to grogs I have no idea where this post should go)

  9. Hey I've been steadily working towards using linux for my own personal reasons and also hoping to help out with the new linux apex at some time in the future. I got knoppix 5.1 installed and working ok and then found out that the 2 isp's in my provence both do not support linux !! and they are the only 2 available to me. However a strange thing happened the other day I got firefox working through my isp and downloade a bunch of stuff i needed for knoppix eventhough they say they dont support it ?? I dont get that ?? Can anyone explain this is my isp lying to me ?? TYRRAM

  10. Not that it really matters but I think this op went a little overboard the guy wasnt really doing anything wrong it seems to be a misunderstanding then to end it all by saying he was going to try to get him banned in every hub he could was a little over the top. A little patience and listening would have gone a long way but the op took the whole thing personal. On the other hand if an op was askin me for a slot I would be a fool to refuse as a rule I give slots to pretty much anyone who asks, its just good karma.

  11. I just talked to someone else about it. I asked if there was any news on the zion projets and they said : omaga went away for awhile, I have to go, bye. thats it man these ppl are so secretive whats up with that ? can someone explain why I feel like Im dealing with the KGB ??

  12. K I got xubuntu 6.10 installed and I'm threatening to install wine eventhough I dont know the benifits. I have it all installed on my other comp, man its nice to have 3 comps that way I can totally screw up and not have to worry about ruining the one I use. THX, to all who gave me info right now I'm just learning to navigate linux, Its really not that hard to get onto. I think I may put another small HDD on my comp and install xubuntu 6.10 on there then just change the boot order accordingly. I was actually hoping to use knoppix 5.1 but there is no way to install it from the iso disc, no way i can find anyway ? perhaps you have to download an install.exe. One thing I really like is all the progs you can install from the internet the comp I have it on is not connected but its good to know all that stuff is there, should be lots of fun. There is a regular version of dc++ for linux (by regular I mean non-segmented) Why would I need wine to run dc++ ?? What exactly is wine good for ??

  13. All I can find out is that it had something to do with their GPL but its all a "big secret" for some reason ppl in the know wont talk about it either because they dont feel like it or they dont really know anything I dont know why. Anyway I'm a little pissed about it I volunteered my time and energy to test Zion++ 2.17 green (and I wasnt doing it for the money) the least they could do is give me some sort of notification or explanation, but nothing. The forum site disappears no one says a word, no e-mail, no thx, no nothing. I was talking to someone on the "zion support hub" yesterday and they seem to think its all coming back they said it was being worked on, the hub is still there so maybe there is hope, but according to toast its totally dead. So I dont know what to think and as you can see from toast's post they aren't exactly talkitive types (thats not a critisism just a fact) Anyhow I got a cool test client out of the deal which I plan on keeping and using so I'm not totaly empty handed. Anyway you never know I'm always learning I may learn to develope it myself someday. I've no shortage of crazy ideas for client as I'm sure you are all well aware of. I at least live in a country where I could probably get away with it. TYRRAM.

  14. Well first of all I got kicked from a hub for using what they called reconnect and in favs i had emulation checked for that hub. I wanna know why they recognized it as revconnect and why they recognized it at all if I was emulating. The next question is about auto search for tth alternative which doesnt seem to be really happening ?? Ill leave apex running overnight or when i go to work and when i get up or come home all of my downloads will be stopped now I can see this happening with 1 or 2 downloads not finding any tth alternatives but I have a hard time believing there are no tth alternatives for 8 or 10 downloads when im on 15 hubs.

  15. doesent happen to me, im using binary.

    did you use an installer?

    Man that sucks ! I wouldnt think it's a client thing. It must be Vista. that probably doesnt help but I'm thinkin vista sees it as a threat or sees the settings as spy or adware thats just a guess. I heard vista security does very strange things with dc though.

  16. I know this is probably not the best place to post this but apperently the ZionDC++ project and lost its GPL which I dont fully understand and the forum is gone as well does anyone know whats going on with the ZionDC++ project and forums ?? I also heard the lead developer has run off ??

  17. Well Canada did more or less make it legal to download most music lol. not that we're allowed to upload.... lol

    crazy canucks and thier crazy laws !! hahahaha

  18. Hi

    Can anyone tell me how to set search in apexdc to more than 100 results thats what i get max all the time and also what setting always use passive mode for search in advanced tab means as it says (only use this if you know what your doing) thnks

    I dont understand do you mean segments, sources or search results I cant imagine u mean search because there is no settings for that that i know of anyway. the only thing that i can think of is that u are only one hub or something ??

  19. After you've installed Linux you then install WINE. Preferably install Ubuntu then you can add it fairly easily... maybe just apt -get WINE in the console, not sure... not used Linux in going on a year now so not exactly sure on much. Hopefully Feisty Fawn will work better with my motherboard when it comes out in April. :)

    WTF is fiesty fawn ??

    There's a menu (maybe called system?), then you go to Install Software, easy way to install stuff. I'm not all that sure WINE is in the repositories though. You may have to add them. Just do a quick google search, like "How to install WINE on ubuntu" and you'll find exactly what you need.

    Well looks like I need to install linux before wine and Im getting cold feet on linux Im scared to lose windows cause I donno how to fix linux if I f*** up so Im gonna take a little time put a small (12GB) HDD in my comp unplug other HDD with windows on it the and install linux there and change the boot order accordingly. would that work ?? I dont know how to partition 1 HDD for 2 OS and Ive heard that the linux setup can confuse u then u end up wiping everything and I cant afford for that to happen. would doing it this way work ok ??
