[Feature Request] Magnet Links: Torrent data should be downloaded even if the torrent is paused

Postby SunChaser » Sat Sep 01, 2018 6:31 pm

Currently if you add magnet link in a paused state, even the torrent data is not downloaded
As I see, one of the common scenarios for starting a torrent in a paused state is to select the files first, even before the space allocation. Currently it is impossible with magnet links with Deluge because you don't have a list of files on that stage. Many clients treat pause in this way - they download the torrent by magnet link and then don't start the actual download of the files

So requested feature is: Add (as default algorithm for pause or as an option) ability to download torrent data by magnet link without starting the download itself
