as i designed it now, you can go into the settings.ini and create your own profile, and then specify which trackers you want to use that tracker (using the scripts Sidebar), and also configure the search url for each site for that profile (editing each script.ini)...  you'll have to do that manually though, since I didnt want to add anything into the main program that would be confusing..  and I figure the more advanced users wouldnt gripe that much about doing something manually =/

but, regarding your question, are you looking for something else?

ok... i finished Minimize to the Tray..   i was hoping for an extra button on the caption bar, but unfortunately the code for that is a nightmare in VB6. I was hoping to hire another coder to do that code for me, but no one has been able to do that yet that looks good enough to use with Bit Che..   so in the next release, it will just be a standard option to minimize to the tray, and the I will have the tabs repeat the searches every 30 minutes (configurable in the settings.ini)..    that will have to do for the time being..


also, i have changed the setup for the Guevara Edition. I've implemented a server check/registration for the Guevara Edition account. I decided to go this route for several reasons...   1st)  I will not have to compile and upload 2 different versions anymore. A single distribution definitely will make things a lot easier for everyone in the future.  2nd)  I will be able in the future to automatically enable accounts when people donate via Paypal and do not have a user account on the forums because it will be database driven.   3rd)  The registration will be tied to your email address which will make it harder for someone to go share the 'Guevara Edition' with the rest of the internet.  I have no problem with people sharing it with their friends.. so this will not be a problem for that scenario at all.

I dont think anyone will have a problem with this because it will be almost entirely transparent to any registered users. All you have to do is enter your account once. Bit Che will verify that its a valid account. Then you will restart Bit Che and you'll be good to go. Also, I have made sure that the extra code for this 'registration check' does not slow down the startup of Bit Che.

I had this problem a few years ago and decided the best solution was to make the form borderless and draw my own title bar, min, max, and close icons.  That wasy I could easily add any sort of controls to the title bar.  It means quite a bit of extra coding just for a simple button since you have to handle the moving/resizing too, but it means making it easier to make BitChe skinnable in future.

chip can you make bit che to give focus on utorrent or any other torrent program after you open a torrent? They open on the backround and this is little annoying

hmm... maybe, but I know I personally would definitely be more annoyed with the focus being sent away from Bit Che after opening one because I often open multiple torrents before clicking on uTorrent (which is normally right behind Bit Che anyway).

but ill see about maybe adding that..

build 58 is posted with some nice improvements... enjoy guys! i'll be back later this week after my finals for fixing any bugs with this release!




bugsssssssss:

1. message boxes shown while Bit Che is minimized are not clickable and unresponsive  (fixed, re-download build 58)
2. strange issue with searching a single script after the message box bug  (not reproducible, possibly tied to the below fixed bug)
3. 'All' from the scripts bar gets updated with 'Please enter your registered email' string. (fixed, re-download build 58)

i re-uploaded build 58 to fix the above mentioned bugs and also a minor issue with some language files (related to the 'All' caption in the scripts bar).. 

any other bug fixes will get a build increase =/
