  1. Why Uploader’s integration components were removed?
    Forever or until something fixed ?
    It was useful.

  2. Strange bug met.
    When i set 2 downloads active at same time – FDM only downloads one file, even if i mark other files with “ignore restrictions”
    When i set 3 dowloads may be active at time – FDM downloada two files at time…

    It seems like if it was miscounting by one ( somewhere

  3. BTW, could you make (perhaps separate pane? or extra verbosity level and extra indentation level in main log pane) plain HTTP/FTP/whatever-protocol log, like ReGet does it ?
    Among things, i miss after migration from stalled ReGet are
    1) plain protocol log
    2) traffic gauge – greately done in ReGet, combining overall traffic with traffic for selected file(s)
    3) task download gauge (with or without showing parrallel parts for multi-conneciton files) as a column in file list.
    4) saving URLs and comments not in one-text-file-per-download way (who ese supports them after all ? only doubles file count in folder) but better in 4DOS’s stye descript.ion and files.bbs files (supported by filemanagers still – DOs Navigator, Total Commander, Unreal Commander, perhaps there are more) and Win32 NTFS Explorer comments (supported by Windows Explorer itself)

    You may say, 3 is not needed as i can see numeric values for file size and bytes downloaded in the list (but graphical gauge is much easier to have a quick glance upon) and a special FlashGet-like panel for graphically shown downloaded and not-downloaded parts (but it cannot be viewed indeed – i need to scroll and scroll and scroll, it does not auto-scale for viewport and hence cannot give user a way for easy overview)

    I use FDM since it came open-source (i tried Orbit, MutliGet and others before – and with por success, then continuing search i saw news about GPLing FDM and wanted to know what it is and tried it, and despite of its name i liked it quite much)… still i miss those features, and so i think they were really useful.

  4. sorry, by “2 traffic gauge” i meant histogram. Quite different things, i admit, bu English is not my native and sometimes right word comes to mind way too late.

  5. O! remembeed one more great thing in ReGet.
    In context-menu for file there was not only “Download task properties” but “server properties as well – and it was very comfort and great!
    It was not ideal (since there can be mirrors, it would be better, when mirrors, to change it into sub-menu “Servers properties” -> menu of main URL server + mirrors. However FDM as it is now lacks even this handy gadget :-)

  6. May I concur to this (mainly because of “descript.ion” feature)?

  7. Hello admin, We are waiting for linux version. We just want to know it’s progress. will you tell us some more?

  8. Not impressed. FSM should stop ignoring the requests of their users and make RTSP/MMS downloading a top priority.

  9. Congratulations on possessing certainly one of one of the vital sophisticated blogs Ive arrive across in a while! Its just superb how a lot you’ll be capable of think about away from a thing mainly simply because of how visually gorgeous it is. Youve place collectively an incredible weblog site space –nice graphics, films, layout. This is definitely a should-see web site!

  10. Newest version of FDM crashes after a few minutes. Tried it on 3 different computers XP SP2, over a period of a few weeks. No matter what settings I used, it crashed due to “runtime error” and msvcr80.dll error. I tried all suggestions I could find from others who have same problem, short of just uninstalling it. Tried the lite version as some suggested. Crashed even quicker. Finally downloaded previous version 755 build 742… so far so good. But I’m not holding my breath. Too bad these guys can’t get a handle on the crashing problem, if you google it you’ll find out how common the problems are
