partial file sharing is in SDC alredy
ps: tth doesn't quite work the way you presented it (half finished file doesn't have half of the complete files hash) but that's not important
sorry...I dont know much about coding...but glad to know it is already workling like that.....I just seem not to see that feature somehow...do I have to enable that anywhere?
this is an Idea I just came across.
is it possible to share files, which you only partially downloaded?! If am not mistaken, BT is working like that rite?! so whenever someone is downloading...everything is is downloaded is immediately shared again, so other users have very fast downloads and quickly can finished the download.
in this case..there might be 2 hashing required
1st: for the completed hashed file, e.g.: sijdhf9wy450ond0v9e4ih0ifn04hsdn0jh0f83y4 --> this would equal 100%
so if someone is downloading from me, and downloaded partially, the hash will run against the complete hash, to ensure it is the exact file:
2nd: hashinformation for the incompletefile: sijdhf9wy450ond0v9e4ih... --> this would equal 50% of completion
this way...if the original source is not online..those guys..who did download an incomplete file...always can resume from the original source.
is it possible?!
it is only an idea to make sharing faster...maybe it is possible. feedback would be nice.
I think there was a special ODC++ version, which has that feature. I remember someone sent it to me, but I cannot recall if that was the source or the client...havent tried it. so if the coders are interested in the source or client (whatever I have) I can of course provide, in case I find it
let me know okie...
I think this request is more based on the hubtool rather than client, but still I gonna post it here.
How about the feature to leave a message for a registered user? This means only registered user can leave a message to another registered user..just like in irc. e.g. /send msg OfflineUserNick MessageComesHere
so when that user logs in, he will receive the message with the notice of the sender.
how do u think about that?
These features will be looked at, and attempted to be coded into one of the 1.0 beta versions:
- Update IP on startup
- Update IP every x minutes
- Update check converted to News type system
- Check Settings (with improvements)
- Auto detect IP
- Multiple away messages
- Extra connection speed tags in General settings (for old DC++ way)
- Winamp toolbar (no winamp window)
- Keyboard shortcuts to menu options
- Windows > Disconnect Filelists, Offline, etc
- Favourite Hubs sorting
- Improve update checker
- Password protection
- Improve tab handling (FulDC)
- First time setup guide
- Have /example main chat commands (stats, google search, apexdc, etc)
- Permanent main chat and PM ignore lists
- Nerdcore, PeerWeb and other emoticon packs
- Winamp spam in dimmed colour (so it doesnt stand out)
- Disable sound in PM only
- Super seeding (requires re-write)
- More to be added
These features above do not need to be requested again. We're already going to take a look at them for 1.0. We plan to re-arrange the settings page to be more organised, improve the language so beginners understand certain settings, with a possibility of having a basic and advanced view.
This topic will be updated regulary.
I was wondering what does it mean with Password Protection? Does it mean that you can set a password for certain folders, so if you user want to download stuff from that folder, he needs to enter the password first? This would be cool
- Update IP on startup
Share Partially Downloaded files
in Feature Requests
I see....thank for the information!
I only tried StrongDC so far, didnt try the other clients. I am sharing chinese series on a privat hub, and if Lee is also asian (cantonese spoken) he is welcome to join
Since those series might contain many many episodes..it will take forever to download from one sigle source..who's connection is not the best (my connection! :S ) therefore partitial sharing would help me and the others a lot to complete everything quicker
