    Hi, I was just wondering if I cood fix this problem with my torrents. Usually my DS rom torrents are crazy fast but when I try to download larger torrents like Wii games I gather a whole bunch of seeds but the dl speed is low while the upload speed is generally high. How would I go about fixing this. If I am breaking any of the rules plz remove this topic. Thx

    Honestly i cant see why there should be a diffrence in this, probably just good /bad torrents. i MIGHT be wrong though, im not a torrent expert, i just download alot =D What torrent client do you use, and have you checd through all of the settings and make sure they are somewhat like they should be?

    Yeah the upload speeds should be about 70% at the most of your upload limit.

    Also check your preferences the maximum ammount of connections allowed could be low, dont set it stupidly high though.

    And next time say your are downloading legal content lol K?

    Well he does have "pirate" in his name [​IMG]

    On topic now, have you forwarded your ports? That usually speeds up torrents.

    No. There's nothing abnormal about it at all.

    I don't see much point for DS games.

    I prefer torrents for larger files, so I can leave it on at night.

    Can't exactly do that with rapidshare parts
