@valery-kirichenko Looks like it can't access the packages server

hey, just cane here to bring a suggestion because i went through a bit of pain with the issue:
now let's say you download something with loads of files, like an album or a tv season, but only need one song/episode and don't want to download all the rest. You need to click on every single file - right click - priority - do not download. On every file. You can't select like all at once or even two, so you need to disable the download for everything else.
Would be really cool if this was a feature in the next version :)
PS: LONG LIVE PICO, best torrent software!

Hi, I forked over the picotorrent project because I had some ideas I wanted to implement in the app and had a few questions
  1. I'm not too familiar with best practices for c++. My development environment is windows and I would like to code in visual studio. I noticed there isn't a project file, how would I go about locating the project file?
  2. Is myGet an alternative to nuget?
Just in case explanation would be tedious and with regards to number 1 is there a tutorial on getting a public project set up with visual studio
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
@mohaider Hi! Running the build.ps1 file will generate a VS solution file for you, either in build or build-x64 depending on the platform you build
MyGet is used for larger NuGet packages like wxWidgets and Rasterbar-libtorrent since the official NuGet gallery won't allow that large packages
May I ask what ideas you're looking to implement? :smiley:

Hey @vktr , trying to build Picotorrent, in order to have the last improvements, but getting this error :

Executing task: Build-AppX-Package

Sorry for the bold line :s

Hi @TechnoGreg, I think the build script is outdated for the AppX-package step. You should already have the installer btw, it's build in the step before the AppX. Otherwise, you can download the latest builds from AppVeyor - https://ci.appveyor.com/project/picotorrent/picotorrent. If you follow the Environment you want to download and then click Artifacts, you'll find both the installer and portable package there.
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
I didn't know about appveyor, thx this is great ! From what I understand, this is a constant builder with the last commitment, am I right ?
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
Yup!
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
@TechnoGreg One thing to note is that the AppVeyor builds aren't signed with the code signing certificate we use for release builds. I think the only issue with that is that it might be problematic to update from a signed release to an unsigned release (SmartScreen probably has something to say, or not)
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
@vktr got it ! :) I found something like a bug, the Picotorrent Window dont open with the correct size the first time it open after a boot. Saw there already is a ticket, do you need some more information ?
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
Thanks for confirming :) I think I have it under control for now!
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
@vktr Do you think you will include the fix to github soon ?
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
It'll be a part of the upcoming 0.16 release. I don't have a set release date but I don't think it will be that far away
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
My my ! What a teasing 😀 Can't wait for that 😱
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
There is an open PR for 0.16 here, picotorrent/picotorrent#672
As well as a milestone here, https://github.com/picotorrent/picotorrent/milestone/5, which contains the issues I've gathered up for immediate fixing in 0.16

@spikespaz
Can picotorrent read magnet and torrent files from a blackhole?
Belle Icious
@LaChaotic_twitter
Is there a way to manually remove torrents? Every time I try to select one of the torrents from the list of active torrents it crashes the application. It's only one that it's doing it for, the rest are fine.
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
@spikespaz What's a blackhole in this context?
@LaChaotic_twitter Does it crash when just selecting it or when clicking the remove action?
Belle Icious
@LaChaotic_twitter
@vktr At first it crashed when attempting to remove it, upon reopening picotorrent it would crash when either right clicking or left clicking the torrent. The only way to remove the torrent was by multi selecting with shift + click with the affected torrent in the middle of the selection.
I submitted bug reports, hopefully they got through fine.

@TechnoGreg
Hey Viktor, back for translating new 1036 file. Do you know when it can be integrated into the executable ?
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
Hi @TechnoGreg! Awesome :) I'm releasing 0.16.1 now to fix a few bugs
Next up is 0.17 which should contain a few more features but not be too far off in the future
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
@vktr great ! I'm downloading it right now !
Btw you forgot to change the picotorrent version on the download page, it's still 0.15 ;)
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
I have a error when installing 0.16.1, created an issue #726

@psergei
I have 3 monitors and each time I start PicoTorrent after crash - it starts with too wide window size, equal to 3 monitors width
Viktor Elofsson
@vktr
@psergei which version are you running?
Sergei
@psergei
@vktr It happened with all versions including 0.17.0

I just discovered PT today. Is there a way to increase the font size? My monitor is a 55 inch plasma TV. I find it very hard to read from 10 feet away, but great for watching the video torrents I download.
Hazardous
@TechnoGreg
Hey @vktr , just find a bug or a non-feature, dunno how to qualify it, but we can't change priority to a torrent part after it's added to picotorrent, in order to download it if this is not donen do I need to create a issue or a feature request ?
Sergei
@psergei
  • multiple selection in torrents list no longer works
  • torrent files (when double-clicked in Windows explorer) do not open in PT automatically.

@pyorokun7
Hello! I just migrated from 0.15.0 to 0.17.0. I assumed that copying the folder "Torrents" and the files PicoTorrent.json and Session.dat to the new folder would let 0.17.0 take over, but it seems that they are ignored (at least the old torrents are, haven't actually checked the config) Have the routes for those files changed, and if so, where?

@ashf
I just wanted to reiterate what @psergei wrote on Nov 14th. Same issues for me. Also, I can only open a magnet link, if picotorrent is not open. Once it's open, magnet links no longer work.
Sergei
@psergei
Also would be good to have larger fonts on main list. 0.15.xx was ideal
@Витёк
@iineonx_twitter
Please add in settings association torrent files and magnet links, save windows positions 😊

@alanlfox_gitlab
Cannot install 0.18.0 or 0.17.0, accept the license and click install, the install says initializing until it eventually times out. Can run the portable version but it doesn't associate torrents or magnt links. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Al Fox
@alanlfox_gitlab
Figured it out, I had made a registry entry for mscfile in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT to run as admin and it kept PicoTorrent from installing.

@alanlfox_gitlab
Any way to create a torrent with PicoTorrent? Thank you.

Can the Picotorrent manage the tracker?
I found I cannot edit it.

Hi everybody :smiley: Sorry I've been neglecting the Gitter channel. If you follow @PicoTorrent on Twitter you know that I'm reverting to wxWidgets for the GUI framework. This is the same as we had in 0.15, so should make most of you happy I think. The reasons are stated on Twitter as well. I'll be monitoring the Gitter channel a bit more often from now on, but don't be afraid to open issues on Github if you have questions regarding the app. Worst case scenario is that the functionality already exists, and if not, we can always have a discussion on what exactly to add and how :)
