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! ^_^

It will start to download once your cache reaches 2 GB. You can add own files to speed up this process.

I'm only guessing from the limited info but this is what I think. When I connected I was given a message that manual download would not start until the unity was at 20GB, or something to that effect. I'm constantly receiving and uploading even though I can't download a file. This means I must be caching other peoples uploads and helping share them. What's in my unity folder could be anything that's currently being shared on the network, plus whatever I choose to upload since it gets cached and put in there too. Once my unity/cache hits 20GB my downloads will start... I think.
:huh:

Ah, English is here!

Still can't find a way to make the text larger...

Also, it's been weeks and I still only have my downloads become highlighted in red, 0% download. I'm told on the "information" tab that "perfect dark is online"...

Read the first post carefully. It shows how you can increase the font size.

Hello,
the two previous postings confuse me a little bit,
means this the application include a english gui?
If yes, I had download the version 0.933 form silverados start post, but where is the setting to change the language?

Or this means I still need some external translation app or a modified version?

Thanks for this tutorial!

Just wanted to say that perfect dark works perfectly in MacOS X 10.5 Leopard on my MacBook with CrossOver Office (no huge and slow emulator needed!), once I changed the default font in mutagen/visual.txt to MS PGothic. The only issues are related to copy/paste and text entry of japanese characters, which just results in question marks - kind of a big problem I guess.

edit:
Oh, and to get mutagen to show up, I had to click the button on the last tab of the settings window.

...or all of them at once, after clicking the apply (a.k.a. "add" button) the text I enter just disappears. And my Perfect Dark is not connected...

Please help!

You need .NET runtime from microsoft.

Keywords won't be used as clusters, I think searches is but i'm not 100% sure.

Note that you don't have to upload but you may have to wait until it downloads random parts of files to upload for others.

xns: Every file needs at least 1 keyword

Thank you, just had found this out as well. :-)

So to clearly sum it up for other newbies:

a) setting the "clusters" in the upload window of the tutorial is obligatory - and, as just learned from Niko^, in plain English that's nothing else than keywords

b) once one has actually added some files to upload, this increases the "unity" by the respective size and subsequently also enables downloads

Quote (selected)
Translation for some parts of interface not translated by program.

Thank you very much for your translation efforts! Unfortunately, as with your previous version, translator.exe doesn't run here (WinXP). Once started, I get the following error message: "The application could not be initialized correctly (0xc0000135)." You do not have any idea of the reason by chance, do you?

Perfect dark has a rather limited amount of stuff in it from what I tried until now. And the amount of things going in the cache is huge (it keeps pushing unwanted stuff to my hdd with 100k/s).
What would be really helpful is if someone translated some more of those things in the main window. As it is now, I can't understand at all what are the chances of actually downloading a certain file. In Share it was much clearer, it was written in yellow, means chances are good, etc. Here I can't figure what files from list are in DB only or on a remote node as well.
For example, what does this thing mean:

And how can I find out at what speed a certain file downloads? I only get the global speed.

thanks

For those trying to dl something, here's a file that works for me right now to try on: (???) InterVideo WinDVD8(HD DVD?Blu-ray???).rar

Besides having the same problem like several others (0% downloads for several weeks now, unity being 18 MB only yet), I'm also not able to add files for upload. If I try, I get the following error message:



Furthermore I wonder what exactly the option "encryption" in the upload window is about?

If anyone of you could help me I'd be really grateful. Many thanks in advance!

It is possible with dll injection, allowing you to send messages from inside program. Unfortunately, my C++ skills aren't high enough (injecting dll is not possible from programs coded with "managed" languages.

Nope. It's all about windows api. Sending messages such as WM_GETTEXT and WM_SETTEXT which works fine for standard buttons and texts which uses windows renderer (ie. text is not written as image, which is done for menu. Windows limits some messages to used from program itself. This is why main window can't be fully translated.
So, it's impossible to translate?

Hello. Just tried PD today and it seems good. The thing is that I keep getting the same message about the unity size whenever I start PD. I read above that I should add some sharing files. How is this done? Any help appreciated.

Killian have you tried to change the port? Were your nods up to date? You know that perfect dark won't run on low connections?
Tried changing the port, no dice. Nodes were newly copied from the site you gave, so I think they were as up to date as I can make them. I'm now in a dorm room meaning that I have an awesome connection, although that could also mean they block whatever ports I'm trying.

Gonna try some more ports and see if they are just blocked and I'm getting unlucky.

Edit: Trying ports did it, now I'm on. Unfortunately I got that Unity message pop up that I used to get when it wouldn't download anything, hopefully this reinstall has fixed that problem. Thanks for the hlep.

Not sure if anyone has noticed this.
To change the font size or color, edit visual.txt under mutagen folder.
The default font size for searched items is 12.
Changing it to 15 would make reading a whole lot easier.

Ended up reinstalling windows, thus wiping my hard drive. So, I reinstalled Perfect Dark. And it won't connect. I went through the setup procedure just like last time but now it just says "perfect dark is offline" and never changes. No error messages, no nothing. I downloaded the update linked in the first post, still have the same problem.
