Bittorrent
« on: November 12, 2006, 04:41:05 am »
When I tried to download Death Note ep6 it said "torrent rejected by tracker". Does anyone know why it did this and how I can fix it. I thought it might be my computer because we were having connection problems, plus my mom kept having to shut down my computer while it was downloading because of my cats. How do I fix this?

I believe scarywater has been acting rather oddly of late. If the torrent won't restart on its own, try deleting the torrent itself and redownloading it.
My mind is like a sieve. It retains all sorts of interesting bits and lets the important stuff flow straight through.

I tried that several times and it still won't work. I'm not sure what's going on. I'm trying to figure out if it's a problem I created or if they are having trouble. Thanks for the info.  ;D Do you have any other suggestions that I can try?

When I go to download that ep. I get a message saying that the tracker is down (even though it really isn't) but I can connect to peers remotely. The only other things I can think of are to delete the back up version of the torrent in your application data (If you're using Windows, it's in your local settings under the hidden "application data" folder and it should be in a folder for whatever client you use) and then redownloading it.

If that doesn't work you could try deleting what you have downloaded so far. Or potentially another client (Azureus or uTorrent) might have more luck.

Failing that, try the IRC channel (#live-evil@enterthegame.com). If you haven't used IRC to download before, ask and someone will be happy to help you out.

I'm a really big noob when it comes to this stuff. I'm trying to find the folder you mentioned but can't find it. Where do I look on Windows to delete it? Sorry for all the questions I just really want to fix this before I have to go to school on Monday.  ;D

Yeah, we've been discussing this in the channel. Forget that.

Your best options are either to switch to one of Azureus, BitComet or uTorrent (all of which support decentralized tracking) or to hit the IRC chan.

Ok here it is, if you're on a less than 1.5 GHz system, forget about Azureus. It rapes the memory. I am on a slow computer so I like my BitComet. Apart from that, if you're going to use BitComet, go for the pre 0.64 versions, they're better at avoiding slow speeds caused by firewall configurations.  ;)

µTorrent supports:
Priotarization
DHT tracker/network
Selective Downloading
Encryption
Tracker
Remote Control
Super Seeding
RSS
UPnP Port Mapping

Besides that, it uses only 7000k memory.

Azureus supports:
All the above features plus it got all sorts of fancy features and makes you happy. However, it's one of the worst memory whores and will kill your CPU unless you're on a accelerated system. You also require Java. Recommended to anyone with a fast system and who cares more about perfection than CPU usage and do not find having Java installed a problem.

BitComet supports:
Most of the stuff above. What it doesn't support are:
Remote control
super seeding

Memory usage is 20000k to 30000k, although I am damn sure it was lower before.  :-\ It apparently is the best choice client for slow connections like dial-up. There is a leech-only mode too...although that's not a nice feature of-course. You can preview incomplete files and for several other features, I like BitComet the best.

bittornado  is what I always use and it seems to never have problems with scarywater no matter what state it is in.

I do feel compelled to mention here that some trackers reject BitComet, especially older versions of BitComet.  I believe BitComet was one the clients that essentially cheated the system- it basically lied to the trackers saying that it had uploaded much more than it actually had.  Since bittorrent is a give-and-take system, uploading (not necessarily a huge amount) helps speed up your own downloading speed.  So a few clients, including older versions of BitComet, acted as though they had uploaded in order to increase users' speeds.

But all that wasn't really needed.  Just know that I've heard some groups' trackers reject BitComet.

That's prior to 0.60. The 0.60 versions works best. Anything prior to that cheats, anything after that gives your low speed than you're capable of getting and more trackers block it.
