Can't download Get to work or City Living.

Post by allyplays on Tue 10 Jan 2017, 15:34

The Get to work and City living links don't work for me. They get added on my torrent but download never starts. 
Get together downloaded without issues.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @allyplays,

If you have any other torrents running in your client, can you temporarily PAUSE/STOP them all, and only run the Get to Work & City Living-torrents instead?

OK, so I looked again at my old laptop (I mostly use that one for seeding purposes), and City Living shows for me as having ~700 seeds, and Get to Work about ~300. In case you haven't done so yet, please double-check again your torrent-client settings. A nice introductory guide can be found here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11496-how-to-speed-up-fix-utorrent-downloads-guide

In addition, sometimes µTorrent can have slight hiccups in my experience. Try for example exiting the client, waiting a bit, and then re-starting the client.

I did restart the client, in fact i reinstalled the client and only loaded the sims torrents.
Again, the get together downloaded in like 2 minutes, the other two won't even start.

Again, please (re-)read the guide that I linked to before very carefully. Smile  From the screenshot I am already noticing that your DHT is disabled, and maybe some other settings could be out of order as well. Here it is:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11496-how-to-speed-up-fix-utorrent-downloads-guide

I also notice that your program version of µTorrent says 2.2.1, but I think the latest available version is 3.4.9, so you might want to re-download a newer version of the µTorrent as well.

Concerning the DHT, tick the appropriate box here ("Enable DHT network"). This is part of the above-mentioned guide on µTorrent settings.




Edit: I myself am seeding the City Living torrent at almost the maximum speed available for my internet, and apart from me there are almost 2,000 other seeds. I know all of this may be difficult for you, but at that point there isn't much else I can say or do.

Yes i do use the 2.2.1 version because it is the cleanest there is and i recommend it wholeheartedly. And i had all the settings exactly as shown.

So, i uninstalled that one and installed the latest utorrent version, tried again, same thing. Then i went on the bay page and there it said if there are issues with the magnet links to use their torrent, bitlord. Which i did, the torrents downloaded and now i'm in the installation process. Whoohoo.

Hopefully i'm not going to mess it up.

Thanks for your help, it seems like there's a lovely community here.

That's probably one of the strangest things I've ever read/seen on the Forum here, but then I guess it doesn't matter, since it seems to be working for you? Very Happy

//EDIT

By the way, older versions of torrent clients may indeed not always support magnet links (properly), which was the main reason I suggested you update µTorrent...
