Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Please create a HTML page referencing this image. Geocities does denies access to visitors for non HTML file if this file is not loaded from a Geocities hosted HTML page (where Geocities attachs its ads and JavaScript). This done, give the URL of your HTML page which just needs to contain the reference the image like this:

<HTML><BODY><IMG src="LimeWire.jpg"></BODY></HTML>

(store that HTML file in the same folder "/imeshlite/" as your image, for example with the name "/imeshlite/LimeWire.html".

Apparently your Windows 95 or 98 fonts have been changed and do not display the appropriate metrics (the line height does not match with the normal definition expected by the default theme for Windows.)

As you seem to use the default theme for Windows, it uses the following fonts:

# tabs and window labels
CONTROL_TEXT_FONT_NAME=dialog
CONTROL_TEXT_FONT_STYLE=1
CONTROL_TEXT_FONT_SIZE=11

# nothing in 1.4, results list File Title and Library folder names in 1.3
SYSTEM_TEXT_FONT_NAME=verdana
SYSTEM_TEXT_FONT_STYLE=0
SYSTEM_TEXT_FONT_SIZE=10

# results list font in 1.4, results list details in 1.3
USER_TEXT_FONT_NAME=verdana
USER_TEXT_FONT_STYLE=0
USER_TEXT_FONT_SIZE=10

# nothing in 1.4 or 1.3
MENU_TEXT_FONT_NAME=verdana
MENU_TEXT_FONT_STYLE=1
MENU_TEXT_FONT_SIZE=11

# nothing in 1.4 or 1.3
WINDOW_TITLE_FONT_NAME=Georgia
WINDOW_TITLE_FONT_STYLE=1
WINDOW_TITLE_FONT_SIZE=11

# nothing in 1.4 or 1.3
SUB_TEXT_FONT_NAME=Georgia
SUB_TEXT_FONT_STYLE=1
SUB_TEXT_FONT_SIZE=11

Are you sure to have the correct versions of the following fonts:
Verdana, Georgia ?
Also when a font cannot be found, it reverts to a default "virtual font" given an alias name "dialog".
The definition of this font alias is part of the Java installation.
You may look at which version of Java you use, to make sure that the "dialog" virtual font is properly defined for your system.

---

Open the file "font.properties" present in the "lib" subfolder of the Java installation.

(1) If you use Java 1.3.1 or 1.4 You should see something like:

dialog.0=Arial,ANSI_CHARSET
dialog.1=WingDings,SYMBOL_CHARSET
dialog.2=Symbol,SYMBOL_CHARSET

which indicates that the actual font will be searched in this order:
Arial, Wingdings, Symbol.

(2) If you use Java 1.5.0 Beta 1, the "fonts.properties" file should contain something like:

dialog.plain.alphabetic=Arial
dialog.plain.chinese-ms950=MingLiU
dialog.plain.hebrew=David
dialog.plain.japanese=\uff2d\uff33 \u30b4\u30b7\u30c3\u30af
dialog.plain.korean=Gulim

(the format of this file was changed in Java 1.5.0, but users noramlly never need to modify the "font.properties" file which is installed with Java).

Here also, there's an explicit reference to the Arial font to display Latin, Greek and Cyrillic (grouped under the term "alphabetic")

---

So make sure that these 3 core fonts are properly installed in Windows. It's possible that you have incorrect versions of these fonts, or copies that were not built for Windows 98.

So you may need to reinstall the 3 standard Windows fonts from your Windows CDROM or from updates. Some softwares modify core fonts and replace them with fonts with identical names but different metrics:

Arial, Courier New, Time New Roman

Plus these 2 fonts from Internet Explorer, if you want to use the default theme on Windows:
Verdana, Georgia

Alternatively, you may want to try other themes:
- for example the "Windows" theme uses only the native fonts described in the Java installation in "font.properties". But the look and Feel is reset to use the default Windows coloring scheme of your Control panel, and buttons or menus corresponding to the standard Windows Look and Feel.

- or the "Amber" theme which was made to use the Java Metal Look and Feel but with only the default "dialog" virtual font. Without any forced bold character style (I created it for international users, so that they will be able to display the interface correctly with their language, notably for languages written with complex scripts like Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Arabic that are difficult to read when displayed with Bold characters).
A screenshot of this theme follows:

(Note that, due to the 256 colors palette (needed because of the progressive background shading), the image is a bit darker than it is in reality with more colors and a more dominant bright yellow). I could have used a 16-bit palette, but I wanted that the image views here keeps at reasonable size.

Note also that this is a development/test version, that has some unreleased items. Also the interface shows the French translation...

LimeWire 4.0.3 is released. 4.0.3 is a service release for 4.0.2, fixing various internal bugs. 4.0.3 also fixes the "too many peer connections bug" and should fix problems first-time Mac Classic users were experiencing. Approximately 30 internal (and rare) bugs have been fixed for this release.

Here is a magnet-link to LimeWireWin 4.0.2 from the LimeWire page. You need to paste it into your browser, as the URL-Parameter adds "http:// ":

I've been wondering about something in the past days

Is there something different in the internationnal versus the english version on windows related in local connections? I'm asking that cause on os x, starting as a leave I easily get 3 fr connections, but on windows with the english version (but with the interface in french) I never get those fr connections (the prefs are on in options).

Merci

arne, I wanted to have the confirmation from LW devs that the language used for the interface is the one that receives preferencing (normally it is, but the english windows made me wonder, I'll try the internationnal later). Yes of course the GUI is in french. BTW it connects by language not by region AFAIK. ie even if I'm in Québec I connect to lots of nodes in Europe.

Ciao

Can files that get manually added to the shared folders after LW has started be uploaded, or is a Refresh first required?

btw--4.0.3 on 10.3.3 looks fine so far. Should we look for the changelog for the 30 fixes (whew! probably takes longer to document than fix ) here or the CVS logs? FWIW, http://www.limewire.com/english/cont..._history.shtml only shows up to 3.9.12
