Well Well, its nice to see it being called an op client , when any old tom dick and harry can get their hands on it and use it.... pity there was no way of preventing users from getting it since there are some obvious leeching features in apex, like most op clients.
Having said that, its a quirky little client that could be a great client. Personally I found dcdm was an excellent op client since all the check and kick functions etc, could be customised and disabled, but above all, the one thing I found with DCDM that was better than apex was the fact it was capable of getting filelists from most clients... Apex has a serious issue here and I have seen many ops kick users for connection timeouts....yup, dc++ ver0.688 the answer was to use a second client to get these lists.
So, for me, the way forward for Apex must be to achieve a better success rate for getting filelists from all clients and leave out the
obvious cheat functions. any good op on Dc will know 3rd party apps to achieve bandwidth control.
Dont think I'm tearing apex to shreds.... I actually see it has great potential but at this time is causing some issues in large user hubs where almost all clients are allowed.
Incedently, most ops use this as a normal client setting up only adl searches but not using raw commands and letting the client
run on its own checking each connecting user the way you do with dcdm.
