Cant create a torrent file

Postby mockingbird » Sat Jul 04, 2015 7:07 pm

Hello, I cant seem to create a torrent file, there is a glitch somewhere.



Steps:
1- Create a new torrent
2- Select the file (when clicking okay nothing happens and don't close the windows so I close it myself) the repertoire of the file is still selected
3- Select the tracker
4- Checking the settings
5- click save > tells me me to select a folder, which I did. > goes into a loop and asks me again and again and again and again and again and again....



What to do?


Last version of deluge

I have never used it before, but I just did a test torrent that worked.
Do you perhaps have a file permission issue stopping you from saving to the location you are selecting?

Windows 7 x64
Deluge 1.3.11 py27

File -> Create Torrent
Click File.
Navigate to a 300 MB file I have on local machine.
Click open. (Window closes automatically.)
Switch to trackers tab.
Click add.
Type http://127.0.0.1
Click OK.
Click options.
Change piece size to 1 MB.
Check add to session.
Click save.
Navigate to desktop and click ok.
File saved to desktop, added to deluge.

the direct link

Maybe you can have a better idea.



Open it with Media player, for some reason, it becomes blurry when I watch it with VLC. I used FastStone Capture for the recording sorry if it seems cheap.

By the way, it works great with uTorrent so I guess I do have all the permissions. :shock:

I don't have that "window not closing" issue you have. As soon as I click the button the window closes on its own. I am not sure why you are having trouble.

Also, when I add a tracker it gets added to the list. Yours looks like it just closed the list.

I am using mine as a thin client setup with the daemon on a different pc. Not sure if that makes a difference.

I did manually upgrade to libtorrent 1.0.5. Not sure if that makes a difference. I don't think that is involved with the create torrent thing.

I have to go right now for a while.

So... It works with the 1.3.3 deps version with gtk runtime


Shall I use it or is it too old? What is the difference anyway?

Can anyone tell me how to reset Deluge settings? I have read the FAQ but it is too vague... Where is the config directory?


I know the main directory but I do not see the config one.
