Thread: qBittorrent Mod Availability??

    Question qBittorrent Mod Availability??

    Hello,

    Has there ever been -or- or is there a mod of qBittorrent that enables DHT & PEX for torrents flagged as private? Not looking to multiply my ratio as I keep a high ratio using a remote seed box. Would just like to maximize the # of D/L peers.

    Been using a modded version of uT (uSerenity) that does this and I get more peers than using an unmodded uT of the same ( & newer) version on tested torrents which cuts my D/L time for torrents with fewer seeds.

    Downloads with uT have slowed lately (about 1/10 of allocated bandwidth) so I tested qBittorrent and my D/l & U/L speeds literally maxed the allocated bandwidth. No version of any other client has ever done that.
    This was do using identical settings (ports, # of connections, rate limits, paths, etc, etc) in uT.

    Thank anyone that replies.

    The right thing to do would be removing the private flag check from the source and recompiling, but it's easier to just search for this instance of the string "private" inside the binary and change it to something of the same length, like "xyzzyzy" or whatever.

    Code:
    Offset(h) 00       04       08       0C
    
    00E97690  74000000 636F6C6C 65637469 6F6E7300  t...collections.
    00E976A0  73696D69 6C617200 73736C2D 63657274  similar.ssl-cert
    00E976B0  00000000 70726976 61746500 6D74696D  ....private.mtim
    00E976C0  65000000 6C656E67 74680000 61747472  e...length..attr
    00E976D0  00000000 73796D6C 696E6B20 70617468  ....symlink path

    modding qBT requires modding libtorrent, I was working on it but sadly my free time is not that much. But if anyone achieved it one day it will mean modding any client uses libtorrent very easily.

    Ok. I'm not a coder AND I wasn't thinking. Your response reminded me of something.

    I can basically do this to each torrent before loading it into qB using BEncode Editor.

    It would be nice to have a client mod of qB to do this.

    Thanks for the memory jog.

    And I'm thinking qB is going to be a miss for me now. It's habit of moving files when I don't want to be is way beyond aggravating.

    I set my directories then loaded a 422 GB torrent to seed and it moved every file instead of seeding from the original location. such a waste of a otherwise good client.

    Unfortunately, that will change their info_hash and render them useless for seeding purposes.

    Sounds like you did something wrong here... if it moved files elsewhere, then the target location (for downloading or hash checking) must not have been set correctly.
