rafi do these settings work well for ut 2.2.1 (build 25302) ? the best one imho i downgraded and i wanted you to tell if you dont mind what settings i should change or it these are only suited for versions 3.x or are perfectly fine for 2.x?

or if you have made a guide for 2.x versions like this one would you email it to me? kornadict@gmail.com

thanks in advance

can you tell me why it is happening?

No. Cannot compute... not enough info...

This is the problem,

If my laptop is shutdown automatically (means unexpected shutdown), all the torrents in the u torrent are deleting automatically, can you tell me why it is happening?

We usuaully do not support older versions, so those are for 3.X. But... this thread was for 2.X in the past, and as I remember there was not many changes in them. I think you can still try them on 2.2.1.

Just remember to set your own upload speed limit and download related path(es) in there .

When 3.1.X will become stable - I'll try and update them.

I can understand the reason for that. Unfortunately' date=' it is not that easy to implement. I'll try to think of something next time I change things (probably when 3.1.1 will become stable) .[/quote']

That's all I ask for, thank you.

I guess adding an "updated" notification-post here can help a bit too...

Yeah I believe it will. Just a little something to let people like myself know of any changes or updates to your amazing guide. :D

When I start a new torrwnt, the file window pops up. But it pops up behind all other windows on the worktable, so, often invisible. What in settings should be done to make it pop up over (in front of) all other opened windows.

Unfortunately, there is no such setting. You might want to suggest such setting as new feature.

one problem with your settings.dat is that its left with your bad ratio (down 8TB, up 400GB duh)

it would be very nice if you can start with a fresh settings.dat then apply your tweaks

I see. Didn't think of that...

start with a fresh settings.dat then apply your tweaks

I don't think I have the time for that, but... there must be a way to clear those numbers. I'll ask around. I guess uT devs better provide a "clear statistics" control...

Maybe your AV is protecting the path the settings.dat file is in ? Try to exclude this path within your AV app.

thx rafi, a must have for routers , even if i limited 10 % from upload speed and apply rate limit to tcp connection active browser didnt loaded normal. For the moment with settings below, >>>morning works good, lets see how will be tonight. Night i usually have problems.

[2] Settings that might improve (reduce) your overhead:

2a. Set pref->advanced->net.uTP_dynamic_packet_size =false

2b. Set pref->advanced->net.utp_initial_packet_size = 8 (use MTU size, actually 1440...)

[3] Set pref.->advanced->bt.tcp_rate_control = false

///is normal to freeze 1-2 seconds if you change a setting that affect speed/tcp/udp and so on. First he stop the process ,apply settings and then continue with new settings. ;)

Thanks for the guide, very useful. But I'm having a problem, I want to disable the sequential download of files, but can't find the option bt.sequential_files on Advanced Settings, I've tried with 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 :(.

This is not set so by default. You mean you've set it so in the past (per para. I) and cannot revert back?

No, I mean I can't find the option at all on Preferences->Advanced. And want to change it because on my newest torrent the priorities have set themselves and can't modify them.

I've downloaded your settings files btw.

I see. I think it's caused by a mistake of mine in the settings.dat files here.

Just follow *exactly* paragraph I 1. & 2. and you'll be able to reset bt.sequestial* to their default - false

I'll correct it and replace the files in a few days.

* Cache size raised from 64K to 128K

* Statistics/total data volumes - cleared

* some cached files/path names - deleted
