in winny and share, having a trigger function for file download  automatically .
We can add files to download by hash, filename pattern  match, id, etc published by someone

does perfectdark has such function too ?

Hi, I'm using 1.02 and having some trouble.
It connects just fine (I have a 2mbps DSL line), but:
1) Uploading is extremely slow. The send speed is stuck at around 20 kb\s, when it should be around 150
2) I can't download. Even though it uses the incoming channel almost to the max (150 kb\s of the possible 200), downloads don't progress and unity grow very, very slowly. It seems to be.. uh... downloading something else? Disregard that, downloads took off when Unity reached 100 MB.

just a thought for people pasting nodes into perfectdark and text diappearing,have you got windows language pack installed.like when you go onto japanese websites, explorer asks you to install language pack before opening japanese website,just a thought.

I am still not sure how to share a file...

When I use eMule, I specific one or more folders with files to share,
if someone is interested he can download the files from me.

-How Perfect Dark share files? I guess I must upload it, but where is this file stored? I guess in this 20GB temp file, is this correct?
-When I try to upload a file, PD ask me for keywords, is there somewhere a list of possible keywords? What should/can I enter in this fields? (Solved: Seems to me every Keyword are possible, it's only a tag system for the files, but the tags are not fixe defined)
-When I finished with the upload, I see it in information->log and the file is removed from the upload list, is it correct that the file not appear in "search"? If yes, why? (Solved: Seems to me the "Search" show not all files

-When I finished with a download, can I remove the file or should I leave it in the download folder? (like downloaded files in emule)

-When I look in the search I find some files with a sign, what means sign in this table? What can I do with it? (Solved: Nothing at the moment, but it's possible to search from a special user)
-What is a "gather" ? (Solved: direct downloadlinks are shown there)
-Why the state for a forum is "download"? (SOLVED: This means listen to this feature, OD check for new entires)
-This "floots" are very funny, but what's the sense of it? (Solved: Yes, it's just for fun)

Sorry for all this questions, but I am still very confused.

Peter

EDIT: some questions are solved in the menatime.

1.000 adds translation ability. Use write mutagen and you will get language.txt in mutagen folder.
Select "other language" as language.
Then add translation to third line.

id "10"
" information "
" ?? "

would become

id "10"
" information "
" ?? "
" translate here "

Red means that no more pieces is available.

Thank you for all of your help.  Perfect Dark is unlike any program I've ever used before, so it's taking some getting used to.  I was able to get it up and running in about half an hour though, whereas I never could get the hang of Share. 

Edit: Another question, if anyone knows the answer, what does it mean when a file in your download list becomes highlighted in red?

You can think of the cache files as a public temporary folder, where everybody uploads something and add their parts to your cache folder. If the uploader is gone the files will still be accessable through the public cache. That's why it's called "Unity" folder, because all peers form a united virtual cache. Only a few people are using perfect dark so far and that's the reason why the unity folder has to be that big. As soon as it gets more popular and the number of caches grow, it's possible that it will be replaced by a smaller unity folder.

Okay, I understand that you have to have 2.0 GB in your unity/cache folder before you can begin downloading.  What I don't understand is what exactly these files going into that folder are, and why you need 2 GB worth of them.  I also don't understand why even though I have a good connection, and my ports are forwarding properly, I'm only downloading these cache files at about 30-40kbps.

OK, here's what I found. Apparently Perfect Dark is suffering from the multiprocessor bug. Running it on a single CPU (by setting the affinity in Task Manager) makes the program work. As soon as I set it back to utilise all processors, all uploads and downloads are killed immediately. It just drops to 0kB/s 0kB/s...

I'm pretty sure this is why certain ppl got the "no download, no upload bug".

Hi,

Looks like Perfect Dark has a broken network stack or something. I tried a couple of tricks on my XP x64 PC but I  never got more than couple of bytes/s. Installing PD on my Win2k box seemed to have solved the problem. I was immediately getting some visible up and downstream (about 32 up and 60 down, for now). I'll try to run the software off peak, in the middle of the night and see what happens.

Hope this is helpful.

Hm... I followed everything inside the tutorial in the 1st post but still cannot get it to be ONLINE mode...
Question
1. What's the minimum speed required to get this connected?
2. It seems that the cache have to be at least 40Gb for the 0.992, which means that i need to have space twice as much to the 40Gb to download stuff as big as 40Gb?

Hi,

I'm experiencing the "no download, no upload" problem as well, even though PD is online and I'm getting search results. I fired up tcpview and noticed that once I get an "ESTABLISHED" connection, it drops after a few seconds. I also noticed there are 50+ connections in the TIME_WAIT state. I imagine this is not normal. I'm currently investigating what's causing this but so far I did not manage to find a single clue. Could it be that I'm using Windows XP x64? I hope I'll find out soon and I'll report if anything happens.

You need only to enter the nodes. Also set your firewall or router to allow perfect dark the access to internet over the setted port.

Hello all, I just got Perfect Dark 0.992 a while ago, and I've set everything up with the nodes - but still can't download anything. I get only 1 Kb for send, and 2 KB for receive, with no hits when I type in a keyword (I tried "anime" and "game" so I should be getting lots of hits ^_^)

The error message I get is "Perfect Dark is online, open port NOT confirmed." What do I do about this? I didn't enter an IP when first setting up Perfect Dark (wanted to remain anonymous) - is that the problem? Or is it referring to a port forwarding error?

Please help! Thanks in advance! ^_^
