I fail at this




it just stays at 0%. I always get that 2000mb unity message. I tried setting it up at 20gb but it automaticly reverts back to 40.

I've been getting the "unity" 2000 mb popup as above, hasn't happened before. Since it started happening, I haven't downloaded a bit of anything. 0% on all downloads. I have left it on for several days before (this has been happening about a month) and lately I left it on all week. Still 0% on anything. Something is wrong. Sure that "unity" 2000 mb message doesn't mean anything? My unity file is set to like 40 gigs. . .

Thanks silverado.

I got the newest one and reset everything but it is worse now than before.

I don't know what is wrong.

Everything looks fine but searches return nothing.

Sigh :lonely:

And now I got this RED(BAD) message

You can try to use a new version of perfect dark. It looks like you're connected to only very few nodes. Since you got no download or upload.

Add some files to share and be patient. You need a broadband connection (50+ KB/s upload) in order to use perfect dark.

I'm not entirely sure how to search in Perfect Dark. Are there clusters and/or triggers? Are you supposed to first search for a category and then the file you want within that category so it branches? Or do you just search for the file you want and leave it there even if it initially returns 0 results? Does it continually search for it if you don't remove the query?

it's not a warning ... it says that cache will automatically be downloaded until 2000 MB and download will be easier if unity (cache) is greater than 2000.
It also says that to help the network please don't delete the files in the unity folder.

my question .. I did everything. mine says I'm online. I can search everything but I just can't download.
when I click on the searches and they go to the download screen, they just stay there and stop at 0%.
I've tried this with files that have 100+ counts and good green reviews on the left.
Why is this?

I wonder is that critical or something? Because I haven't been able to download anything, even there reads "perfect dark is online". Could somebody translate that for me? Or tell meaning of it?

Thanks, silverado.

But, I'm thinking that PD suffers from something called "CPU hogging". It slows my computer insanely, jamming browser and all. I must restart it about each fifteen minutes, even it wasn't connected at all...

Huh, it seems that latest version(9.30) is also last.. Or does it?

Because in searches I see just files that _I'm originally sharing_ and Perfect Dark keeps having port problems/being offline...
And in "main search" it shows just small list.

Apparently, most of the menus are natively English without any tweaking in the resource editor and appear in Japanese only when PD is loaded.

I wonder why...  :huh:


This is because the translation is taken from the Info_Line. If you look carefully on 109 there are the english lines and the japanese line with specific id numbers.  I can't edit these through my rebuilder...

And as of the "FLOW" box, here's a screen shot:

My only guess is that it must be some type of message board, where people post relevant messages,
like updates or the posting of new files, or just post crap.
But let me know what you think.


Flow is exactly what you said. A place to put up requests, messages to those who use PD, or comments on things you found. How to throw comments in is on the button right of the Flow button. A new window with editable text box will appear. Enter in any comment you like then press OK

Thanks for the reply Silverado.
So basically the unity folder is the cache right?
I erased the files in the unity folder, and it went pretty good, but i kept having messages about the unity
growing up, i suppose Perfect Dark checks the unity folder periodically for any changes, and fiixes them
if it finds them.

And as of the "FLOW" box, here's a screen shot:


My only guess is that it must be some type of message board, where people post relevant messages,
like updates or the posting of new files, or just post crap.
But let me know what you think.

Also notice the new version update!!!
It was 0.910 but now it's 0.911, it keeps updating, i hope they can add the "BOARD" support this time around.

PD saves its cache in the unity folder. You can delete the content of the unity folder, but all incomplete downloads will also be deleted, otherwise it will grow to 20 GB (minimum cache size). I don't know which flow box you mean.

Hello there!, I'm new to the site although i've been coming here to check it often. :yay:
I'm currently using Share and Perfect Dark, and i have to say they are awsome.

However, i've been noticing that the Unity folder in Perfect Dark keeps growing and growing,
even if i'm not downloading anything at all. Is there a way to stop that or to minimize its growth?
And can some one explain the ????FLOW)?box. I see a lot of messages going thru there so i
can only imagine it could be some IRC board implementation i suppose, but you guys let me know.

Thanks for all~! :trala:

Hi,



   
That error is this?

thanks.


that means there is a new version floating around. It usually just downloads by itself. but some times when there is a major upgrade, they post it on the site.
