Strange....Download Resumes When Searched For The File Again
This Is Strange... When you are downloading a big file, if u resume the file after partial download limewire reports "need more Resources". however If U Search For The Same File again it shows a number of users having the file & the download resumes ! My Point here is why doesnt the download manager automatically find resources. Im Using Limewire 4.8.1:confused:

Salut, that's the wanted behaviour. If LW was allowing too much requeries for one file, you wouldn't be able to search as many people for rare files. It is a tradeoff, plus some other Gnet clients abused from the requery feature and were about to kill the network.

Hey that wasn't that clear. could you be more clear. The file wasn't rare by the way. It had 23 users on that file......

Ok, now there is the download mesh, this is the list of known sources that is shared between clients. When you do a search, you find hosts that have the file but they are not yet in the download mesh since maybe they just connected to the network. You get great speed from those hosts since they didn't have the time to fill their upload slots.
