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.

Default 99% glitch?

Has anyone else had the program just stop downloading when it hits 99%? Is there a way around this without deleting the .par and resumeinfo.txt files and starting from scratch? The "Status" shows hosts connected, but the download speed is 0.0 and est. time is ??. Seems like it's stuck...

Any ideas? I've tried the obvious, pausing/unpausing, close/restart Xolox. Just wondering id there's a trick I'm missing.

BTW - I'm using Win2k SP2, don't know that it matters.

This is normal. xolox downloads big files in parts. let it run preferrably overnight and youll see that it will change to 50% or so and continue.

But it went through it's 100%, 50%, 100%, 60% cycle for a few days, and now it's stuck on 99% and has been for the past 2-3 days.

I guess the best thing is just to let it keep going??

Smile play 99% download

I had a download stick at 99% recently, so I went into C:\Program Files\XoloX\temp and figured out which “JOB-Segment.xlx” it was. I then copied the file and changed the filename extension (from xlx to avi) the movie ran fine. The only thing wrong was that most of the ending credits where cut off. If the download ever finishes I will have a second copy of the movie with completed credits.

Yeah good thing for normal MPEG AVIs.

Don't forget Windows Mediaplayer won't play DivX until they finished 100%. But there are tools (e.g. VirtualDub) to "teminate" the uncomplete movie, so that you can play in Windows Mediaplayer. Other DivX player can handle uncomplete DivX on-the-fly... but currently I don't know which can.

I finally trashed my incomplete 99% download after 4 days of waiting on it. I re-queued it for download, and it's now going through it's 100%-50%-100%-60% cycle again.

Copying the .JOB and .PAR files and changing extensions is fine with movies or music I suppose, but not so good for ISO's or ZIP's - which need to be complete.

Today it did something really strange too - I left it on, and when I came back it had quit and lost all partial downloads.

Basically, the program works GREAT for little files, mp3s, etc. Fastest gnutella client I've used yet. But for larger files, the segmented downloading isn't up to snuff yet. It drops too much of the file!

Xolox should check every 10% or so to see if the .PAR's can be joined - if not, rollback - that way you only lose at most 10% of your file. No more 50% loss. With a 600MB ISO, it can take forever when it constanly drops half the file....

Just some thoughts. And, if anyone's figured a solution to the 99% thing, let me know. I'm beginning to wonder if ANYONE has a 100% complete file? That would explain why it always stops at 99%, no one out there has that last 1%!!

I think your problem is with Xolox's synchronisation of file segments - it overlaps the last 2K of every segment with the first 2K of the next segment (excluding the first and last segments of course). If the segments don't match, the part is dropped and downloaded again - unfortunately, if xolox drops the wrong part (ie the correct one), you will end up downloading the same segment incorrectly over and over again (i.e it will never match). Your best bet is to download as much as possible and put the segments together yourself (using a hex viewer or similar, in association with the resumeinfo.txt file which will tell you where each part belongs).
Hope this helps (I've had to do this myself with several files).
