    I've tried to download the multilanguage version of bioshock from 2 different torrents, but both torrents have a lot of clients and a fairly large number of seeds, the problem, all the clients have the 99,9% of the file and my client refuses to connect to any seed.

    Can someone explain why it does happend and what could be a solution?

    If you're using uTorrent, stop the torrent, recheck it, update the tracker, and force start it. Can't help you if you're using anything else I'm afraid.

    If you're using uTorrent, I recommend not.

    Azureus is good. (I use it, but if you don't know your ports you are in for trouble.)

    some trackers stop you are at 99% so that you are forced to seed some before you get the full download.
