@Ghost21: Obviously

How else could you see your current ratio while the d/l hasn't finished yet

@Keloran: almost

-DG

^^u must be a math wiz or teacher cuz I usually do upload / download = ratio. They both come to the same thing. only difference is the decimal point. I think Keloran meant / instead of * ....

Well, I think it should only be calculated after the torrent has finished downloading because I usually like to seed to 200% after download completed (meaning it doesn't include the amount seeded while also downloading), but that's just probably me..

I'm not quite sure how the ratio is calculated because I remember there being a fix in some version (around 1.1.6) which mentioned using the total size instead of the amount download in some cases... not sure about that so don't qoute me

The standard way of calculating the ratio is upload / download though... not sure where you got 100 / download*upload from SledgeDG, that doesn't give anything close to the share ratio :| maybe upload/download * 100

Since v1.1.7, the ratio is calculated using (upload / size) if you haven't downloaded anything of the torrent, which would be in the cases where you already have the file and only want to seed. This is more useful to the seeder because the ratio would constantly be ∞ (or inf.) otherwise.

By the way if you are seeding a torrent using Azureus and yur ratio is say 150% and then switch to uTorrent and continue seeding same torrent, how does your ratio compute? Do you lose the previous 150% or it adds up or what?

Only-seeded never-downloaded are calculated as uploaded / total size instead of download to account for the real ratio (only a UI thing - doesnt change the ratio reported to tracker).
