    Bit Tornado Settings

    What are the best settings for the Bit Torrent (Bit Tornado) software ????


    I think I have them at whatever the default is,(I don't remember changing anything) but I was wondering if there is anything I should change to help down/up load faster?


    Any help is appreciated of course

    The way bittornado is set up, it limits your d/l depending on your u/l limit you set. Alot of folke recommend setting your u/l just a few kb/s less than you max u/l set by your provider. Personally, I jsut leav my u/l unlimited, b/c I usually start it b4 I go to bed and turn it off when I get up, that way, I know I'm gonna get it downloaded b4 I wake up, but I can up as much as I can. It may make d/ling a little longer (which doesn't matter, I'm asleep), but I can get more upped in that length of time.

    I'm getting this unusual error and none of the FAQs address it.
    So as a last straw, I'm throwing it out here to see if anybody else has ever got this message:

    "bad data - existing file /Users/myname/Desktop/BT files/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.VOB too large"

    uggggggggh
    I want this show so badly.
    I've tried other downloads and sometimes I get this message and sometime on other downloads I don't.

    My share ratio is a respectable 2.13
    so I upload twice what I download.

    The only thing I can think of is that the torrent is banned
    but I see that there are currently 10 people hooked up
    5 seeders and 5 leechers.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Damn Cabot, i wish I could help, but I've never seen that before???

    I have another question..... my ratio sucks (mostly because I didn't understand the process and am learning as I go) so I tried to give back by leaving open a torrent that I downloaded for a few days, so it was all upload ( it was averaging about 50 kb/ps I think?), no downloading at all.......but my number kept getting worse

    Right now, I think it's at .60 and when I left it open last weekend it went up to .64 Shouldn't the number go down? Or does it rise up to 1.0 and then turn green????

    Ugghhhh I hate being such a leecher now that I know what the hell all of that means?????

    Someday I'll actually have something that is not already online and figure out how to make a torrent and upload.....but I think I'm far from that at this point.....

    OK I just tried it at work and it's going fine,
    but I'm behind this firwall so that'll really suck.
    Plus I'd rather not DL from work so I'm gonna quit out of it.
    I just wanted to rule out the Torrent.
    It's gotta be with my machine at home.
    I have plently of hard drive space
    but maybe there's "chucks" that just aren't being let go for some reason
    hence the "too large" error.

    GreenPaw read this:

    EZTree FAQ: Share Ratio

    Hope that helps

    Yup it musta had somethin' to do with lack of hard drive space.
    So I went to Ebay
    got my self a 120 GB external HD
    and I haven't had a prob since

    man there's so much stuff out there and so much of it is "pro shot"

    Hmm, was it a bad HD, or are you still using it? I've never seen that error, and for awhile i was downloading stuff with only 1 Gig to spare.

    I have no other reason to believe it was a bad HD,
    the machine is a hand-me-down from work.
    I've been using the machine for several years and I've had no probs,
    it was zero-d out and all the software was reinstalled including OS-X
    which finally allowed me to use BT.
    Check my above posts,
    the same torrent worked at work,
    I then copied the personalized torrent and folder and copied it on to my machine at home via a zip-disc,
    and voila it worked,

    but only after I made room for it.
    Very strange indeed.

    I use BitTorrent 3.3a and it seems to work fine,
    I've read about others
    but haven't tried them cuz I don't want to jinx a good thing.
    What OS are you using and
    what BT software are you torrentting with
    (did I just make up a new word )

    I have XP Home Edition and use BitTornado. I leave the settings as is(both slide bars all the way to the left). When i'm done downloading and start seeding i allow for more people to upload from me (bottom slide bar i think).

    I know this is an old thread, but if someone made this dvd one big vob (liek 4 gig), your system may not be able to handle a file that large. I think you need NTFS file structure to handle that. I do not think FAT32 can go that large. Running 98 (or maybe even 2k)?

    I have seen other have that same problem.
    Want compression? Buy a race engine.
    Lossless audio is the only kind of audio.

    Why can't we link to real avatars?????????

    Wow, it took almost a week for the Feds to shut down a P2P sharing server because of the SW3: ROTS. I imagine LimeWire and WinMX are next, unless their servers are not on US soil.
