Different color in PAR list as downloading
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:01:24 PM »
Right now when you down load something that has PAR2 files, on the PAR2 tab, it will show them as red or green. It shows red if the file is missing any blocks and green if complete. Would it be possible to have those that have at lease SOME blocks (but not all) to change to yellow instead of staying red? It would just be easier to see what is missing some blocks. I know it is all automatic and it being yellow wouldn't change anything but I like to see if some are missing some blocks to maybe stop the download if it looks like lots will be missing blocks.

I am still thinking about this one. Not sure if I did not make sense or if people do not agree. I will try and explain it a little better.

On the par2 tab, you have all the RAR files with all the blocks needed. They start off with a red background. Once you download the files, they change to green if everything is there. If you are missing one or more blocks, they stay red. If you are missing all the blocks, they stay red also. If you download some par files, those end up grey once downloaded. I was thinking it would be nice if the files started off yellow (background) and change to green if all the blocks are downloaded and none are missing. If there were blocks missing, they would change to red right away. That way, if there were no blocks found, it would change color so you know it at least tried to get the blocks. So start yellow before trying to download and switch to red or green as they get downloaded.

Again, not a big deal at all. I know it should pause if too many blocks are missing but I feel like sometimes, it doesn't (and I do have that checked under misc #3). I have no proof of that but sometimes it seems like that happens to me. Or maybe it just goes for a long time before it figures it will not have enough and I stop it before it gets that far. :)

Thanks for reading.

Done. Good idea, I am not sure how I've missed the first post.

Beautiful! Thank you so much for adding that. Much easier to see what is missing some blocks.  :D
