Adding Torrents

Adding Torrents

Show me the Add New Torrent dialog

If checked the Add New Torrent dialog will show before a .torrent is added to Koinonein BitTorrent Client.

This lets you select what files to download and allows you to edit the trackers along with the save location and the torrent name.

The Add New Magnet dialog is the same as the torrent dialog except that dialog won’t show until Koinonein BitTorrent Client has fetched the torrent file from the the other users of the torrent.

If you don’t select any of these options Koinonein BitTorrent Client will add the .torrent file as it is but you can still change the trackers and save folder along with choosing what files to download at any time.

BEP53

If checked whenever you add a magnet link that uses BEP53 you won’t be shown the Add New Magnet dialog as the files to download are already chosen, you can still select what files you want from the Files tab at any time.
