The latest build seems to be buggy from my experiences with it as well. Quitting the application always causes it to hang, requiring a force quit.

yea i find that too, ive noticed the more torrents you have, the longer it hangs.. it usually takes around 5 seconds for it to quit on its own.

Check out the transmission forums. It seems as though its the new version .95, if you can try and revert back to .94

Does it show the file when you click on the magnifying glass by the torrent in transmission?

Quit problems

I have been running T for a month now w/ no problems. Latest update has killed it.
My custom settings were blown away, the downloads are not showing up to the default or custom folder or desktop.
Also, if you shut it down, it loses all progress on any current files downloading.

Brutal release; but good product.

As much as I like and want to use Transmission, the 0.9x releases have been terrible in my experience.
  • Crashing bad on Quit
  • Ultra-slow download speeds
  • Screwed port-mapping
  • Files bloating up then not working
  • Files part downloading then restarting from 0% if you reload the app (not fun when you waste Gbs of bandwidth)
  • Hash checks seem totally random and inaccurate

I came back when 0.72 was released and trialled it for a good while until 0.82. They did not suffer as badly but downloads are not as quick as other clients. Once 0.9x hit, problems again. Thus, sadly, I'm stuck with Azureus again. Somehow I always go back to it but it seems quite OK thesedays. Not keen on the Vuse thing at all, though but speeds are lightning-quick and it finds many more peers than Transmission ever did.

Reading the Transmission forums form the 0.96 tests, I can't be certain the bloating files and loss of part downloads is 100% fixed. Hopefully Transmission can return to glory soon.

Yeah 0.95 was terrible. But hey! its work in progress, its free and really nice App.
0.96 is touch better, though still crashing on quite and takes all my RAM (4Gigs!!). Thats only app Im having pageouts actually
0.82 is much better choice for now

I don't know about all these issues you all are experiencing with Transmission but I know that it will eat your time machine drive if you don't exclude the download folder. .95 has worked like a charm, but I will give .96 a go and see if anything happens.

Wait. What? Azureus had that feature LONG before Transmission ever did. When you open a torrent in Az, that list of files below with checkboxes can be used to select which files you want to get.

Yes you can indeed do this in Azureus. I didn't know you could do it in Transmission

You can, but you have to select it after the torrent is already added to your client. It's incredibly stupid. You've got to go to the info page, etc, and click them, or click the little gear beneath the torrent and select there. This is why I have torrents to load as paused instead of as started, so I can uncheck stuff if needed. Of course, back when I ran XP, I had µTorrent, which *automatically* brought up a box upon torrent download that allowed you to sign off on what you wanted to get, or simply press enter to get it all.

As I said in a different post, I honestly can't believe there isn't anything close to µTorrent for OS X yet. It's absolutely incredible. Windows users (like me) take that program for granted; it's hands-down the single best client in existence, bar none. Yet there's nothing like it available for Macs. I'm still kind of shocked. I'm going to give Deluge a try when my MB comes tomorrow, because on the surface, it looks somewhat similar, but it still boggles the mind that OS X doesn't have a standout client yet. I mean, seriously, how many years has it been since bittorrent came out?

That worked! Thanks.

I'm using Transmission 0.72 on Leopard 10.5.1 now. Newer releases (including 1.04) works very slowly on my mac. I've revised ports and firewalls and all seems ok.

I've switched to BitTorrent 4.27.2, for the time being anyhow. Works like a charm on SL!
