Yay! Our very own thread :)

Ok, first issue to be posted - kind of odd - in copying over my resume and creating a new settings.dat, I am seeing DL speeds >4kB/s for titles that are 100% seeded. They're not consistent, and fluctuate a lot, but it's still strange - if ALL of the file has been downloaded, why would ANY more still transfer? (and no, there were NO skipped files that would account for this)

4.h .!ut suffix in files is not being removed when DLing multi file torrent as soon as they are done.

4.i New disk cache management - fills up the cache and freezes the download right after starting DLing (only on some torrents). ["Pre-allocate" option is to blame, filing with zeros...  , just disable it]

4.j "Move  files/.torrent after completion" does not work [12-Apr-2016]


Medium Priority


4c Cannot stop  "Checking..." torrent


4.e RSS: [build 32080+, http://alturl.com/3j8nf

- 10 RSS smart-episodes filter fails for episodes > 100

4.f Labels counters still are not synced (jobs are not all visible) after deleting torrent jobs

4.d The mainview display (RSS and in general) seems to be flickering during some refresh events (like maybe RSS updates?). Seems as if it has been forgotten to take the sort order/column into account, and always refresh in alphabetical order, then switch back to the current order...

12.e Manually RSS->update (large rss.dat) while fast downloading - hangs uT /CPU-100% [still  loads CPU, but is only temporary now]

bt.enable_tracker - it is still necessary? :/

http://www.bittorrent.org/beps/bep_0040.html - stupid :mad:

If the client is and the peer is


country: JO

address: Amman, Jordan

country: DE

address: Koeln

please, add "NAT traversal" support

Still getting that damned "Add RSS Feed" prompt - even with a "clean" settings file - I can't remove the settings file, as then it would configure it to use the Apps\ folder and not the stand-alone folder.

VERY frustrating!

I even tried a settings file from an OLD copy of uT from WAY before I ever encountered this issue.

Hi DeathStalker,

That represents protocol overhead - just communicating with other clients:

"hi - do you have this piece?"

"yes I do"

@AdamK - is there an option to turn off that display?

There are two options for you:

1. Disable displaying overheads gui.graph_overhead' date=' OR

2. Include overheads as part of the rate limiter, [i']Bandwidth ->[x] Apply rate limit to transport overhead

Well the 1st only takes into account the GRAPH, and I have no speed limitations places, so the 2nd doesn't work either.

Ok, STOP button does not work, but rt click PAUSE does. Annoying.

Additionally, this build appears to "hammer" some trackers. Serious.

For example, I get the "Hammering" error on the last few builds of 3.4.1, but I can run 2.2.1 at the same time and have NO PROBLEM at all.

Getting there, but this MUST get fixed .....

Hi, guys. I have seen a few posts from a while back but none of them answer my question.

How can one select a few torrents in the list and move them to one location without getting a dialog box for each selected item? This will certainly make things a lot easier.

@rafi: Just wanted to let you know that your link to "known issues" directs to downloading uTorrent.

But seems still quite a lot of issues at hand before making the upgrade from 3.2 to 3.4/3.4.1

No kidding, they need to take this project a lot more seriously, I have my doubts that even 3.4.1 will be worth upgrading to, honestly watching this snails pace development is excruciating.

For anyone after a headerless (run as a service) client with uTorrent like WebUI, look at Hadouken! I suspect I'll be changing over to this client at some stage. I'll say It's amazing how much even one man who actually is not even working full time on his client can do a better job than the pleb/s at Bittorrent Inc.

I don't know why most of you even invest so much effort posting about this client when the developer doesn't seem to respect it enough to post proper updates or even connect with the community let alone create a stable product. Personally I'd wish all of you here just moved on to something else and let Bittorrent sort out/test it's own product and then maybe they'll either take it seriously or it can just die.
