this is a windows limitation.. before the .dctmp extension, the files already had garbage letters added to them.. so.. now you get a file with the wrong extension, but before, you got a file with the wrong name. equally bad. thus, your argument is flawed. No, my argument is perfectly fine. Before ....

it doesn't? *checks what files he's downloading* *opens a running file with VLC* hmm, strange, I must be seeing an illusion then... :oops: ... but... the video looks so real when it moves. Sure it does, but name one mediaplayer in win32 that allows windows move the file to another location while it...

Why keep on arguing about something that's here to stay. The new extension for incomplete files does not hinder media in any way if you use the right tools, if your software can't use customized extensions, then you should consider changing the player of your choice. The extension feature is there ...

You still get a mediafile with wrong extension, .dctmp, because dc++ can't rename a file that's _in use_ which is ...

Same goes for movies sometimes, start to d/l and start to watch at the same time. And how friggin fun is it to rename the .dctmp files to their native extension and then move ...
