Par2 icon color change please
« on: October 22, 2007, 12:00:35 am »
In my opinion anything red is _bad_.

So, when I see a red icon in the par2 tab, I assume something is wrong.
But in most cases nothing is wrong - the file-set just isn't complete yet.
Could that be encoded in another color, greenish-yellow perhaps?
(Ofcourse, when an incomplete set is already determined to be damaged, red is the appropriate icon-color.)

IMO colours should stay as they are now.

When you're missing a file/files _it is_ bad :) Once par2 set is loaded you're missing all files (it is bad) Program cannot know in advance if you have all files in your download queue.

Newsleecher seems to know what's still in your queue and what isn't (as it says 'queued' on the r'n'e tab).
Still, I agree with Rdl. Red means a set isn't complete so as long as it isn't fully downloaded it should be red.
