3.5.x Beta

Recommended Posts

Hi -

Just wanted to report a bug on latest uT version (Build 43580/x32 bit Windows).

The functionality relating to marking files within a torrent to be downloaded/skipped seems to be completely broken in new release (has always worked well in the past).

If I mark all files to 'don't download' and then re-enable some of them via the Priority menu it basically ignores my selections and downloads a different set of files to what was selected. I've tried stopping/starting torrent and this doesn't help.

As per included screenshot - the 'priority' column is correctly showing what selections I made - however the %/Done/etc columns show that the 'skipped' files are being downloaded anyhow (and other files marked as 'normal' aren't being downloaded).

I hope this can be fixed ASAP - not sure if I need to downgrade to old release now.

thanks

CM

Can you be more specific, and describe - when exactly you have skipped/selected files - before starting to download at all? What was the torrent state when you did - stopped? Your PC-OS? What was the previous versions you've used where this was OK? Is that specific to this one torrent or happen to all?

A link to this torrent can help, maybe you settings file too.

Hi - I pause the torrent immediately after it registers (while it's still searching for peers but file list is available) + then go and do 'Don't download' on the files I don't want (at this point 0% downloaded) - and then go and start the torrent again from uTorrent. This problem has happened on every torrent I've tried to do this with since getting the new update (noticed it maybe 5 times) - so it's definitely not specific to a particular torrent.

It's definitely only being happening with latest uTorrent build 43580 x32 (running on Windows 10 64 bit) - I do this quite often for packs where I need to only grab some files - never remember it not working before now.

The torrent site is private so I can't post the link here.

Try to set  your properties->UI->Don't start download automatically (so you don't need to stop+restart). Make sure "use partfile" is selected. Does it happen with this as well?

FWIW,  i just noticed that the help / show statistics info does not increment "number of torrents added" for adds done via magnet links, just via .torrent files.  oops.

Also, it would be a nice addition if those stats could be wiped by the user, for those that don't want anyone to know that they've downloaded 1000 torrents!

You've just been upgraded to uTorrent version 3.5.1.43916!

This page opens up in the browser automatically every 2-3 days.

What version are you running?

A "bug" like that was supposed to have been fixed in 3.5.0.44010 beta.

Sorry. Not using beta version.

I'm on uTorrent 3.5 (build 43916). Couldn't find stable 3.5.x in the forum, so commented here.

So, unless you update to the latest beta, you'd be stuck with this, until the next stable release...

bakabt won't whitelist the newer stable version citing 3.3. series as the reason. Maybe if the devs of utorrent talked with the bakabt owner about what they want to see in utorrent, We can get somewhere and utorrent users are happy and the devs are happy and bakabt staff are happy because no one is whining. We aren't getting anywhere because they tell us to talk to you and then vice versa. Maybe the issue we are experiencing could be solved if you guys talked to each other and ironed out your differences and the users caught in the crossfire will no longer be the hostages.

You're not going to get those idiots to whitelist this or any other version of this utorrent client at all ever. They hate it and have zero interest in reviewing their nazi ass decision regarding it.
There isn't anything that can be done to fix it, many have blocked it simply because of advert security concerns or that bundle drama.
This is maybe in part why they've started developing a new client, you probably won't see this released this year, maybe next if Bittorrent inc gets it's shit together.
