Pawcio implementation

What this does if you are trying to download a file and the file does not have any complete sources, using this will not let the file start downloading until there is a complete source for it. Also if you right click in the transfer window and chosse from the menu [Force Download] this just bypasses the stopped incomplete file and tries to start the download.

Neo implementation

Is similar to the one from pawcio, but in inner working are much more sophisticated. It complety prevents reasks for files with missing parts, it only performs once a partial request to obtain part status. As soon as a complete part set is seen outstanding reasks are completed.

Eastshare implementation

  • if a file was not seen complete, no data is downloaded and no bandwidth is wasted.
  • while waiting for the file to show up complete, sources are asked every (FILEREASKTIME*2).
  • the download can be manually started in the file-context menu. (Last seen will be 07-07-2002, that's emule birthday. Change tick count to 946681200 for sat, 01-01-2000)
  • if a file is stopped and restarted, this waiting state will be restored
