I have finally switched to Athlazan and I love it. Consumes little resources, has everything a mod needs + more, has quite comfortable and advanced file managing, and last but not least it gives me incredibly high downloads, almost twice as high as Plus 1f (could someone explain this to me?).

What are your favourite mods atm? This topic emerged a few times, but those things change constantly, hence the new thread.

About emule+, it's really bloated, that might explain it's poorer performance. I have to say it was slower on my machine when i recently tested it again. Someone was raving about it, but I didn't find it at all justified :(

There's a thread called Optimizing Emule on the official emule forums, emule + does exactly the opposite to each suggestion it makes ;)

Emule + seems to have a tiny queue as well. So you may not be uploading to the people you want to the most. You know the ones that actually upload to you. Emule + isn't one of those clients because I can never get on their queue.

And do you know of any mod that would allow to download the _rarest_ chunks first, instead of first/last chunks?

No please. First the first/last chunk, then the rarest. No need to dl all the rarest chunks to see when finally the first is available that it is a fake or has the wrong language.

Yes, it is much better to download the first and the last chunk and then discover that the only full source has disappeared leaving you (and everyone else) without 2 or 3 chunks.

Usually I don;t need to download the fist/last chunks. Iknow what I'm downloading. I use verified links on forum boards and official release sites. But it's f*** annoying to see that after waiting for 3 days to get to the only full source I am downloading a chunk everybody has. :evil:

This is an extreme case. Sure it can happen, but such releases are uncertain from the beginning. I don't think that normally it makes such a difference to load just two chunks before the rarest.

Ususally this is the same with me, but from time to time I get bored an leave the trodden pathes of sharereactor or even HHAH. The real fun is to find something new and rare, which might take forever to load. But I don't want to wait forever and then see it is junk I got.

Yes, in that case the uploading strategy of such clients, must be questioned. But don't fall from one extreme into another.

The ideal would be thus to be able to choose the strategy.
