XDCC Catcher Pro contains a lot of features which aren't available in XDCC Catcher Basic. Almost all of these features are listed below with a short description. (Of course, XDCC Catcher Pro has all features of XDCC Catcher Basic as well.)


 

XDCC List interface

 

Some bots support XDCC List requests: when you send a private message 'xdcc list' to the bot, it sends you the list of all packs of the bot to you. If you don't want to send a XDCC List request, you should wait till the bot posts a public XDCC List in the channel. XDCC List requests are useful when you immediately want the list of all packs of a bot.

 

You can easily add XDCC List requests with XDCC Catcher. XDCC Catcher sends a private message 'xdcc list' to the bot and adds the response (all packs of the bot) to the list of all your packets (Packet list). If the XDCC List request is denied, XDCC Catcher stops requesting and changes the status of the request to Denied. If the bot is currently offline, XDCC Catcher continues requesting a XDCC List till the bot is online. In general, XDCC Catcher continues requesting a XDCC List till the bot responses.


 

Restore queues

 

Usually, XDCC Catcher makes a backup queue file everytime you modify your local queue. With the Restore Queue dialog, it's very easy to restore (backup) queues. If you restore a queue, the packs in the queue file are added to your local queue and the file itself is removed.

 

 

Botscore

 

Each bot has an individual bot score: a number which indicates how fast and reliable the bot is. Bot scores are listed in both the Packet list and the Search results (last column). If you should choose between several bots with same files, choose the bot with the highest bot score.


 

Recent finished files list

 

The Recent finished files list contains the last ten files you downloaded. By pressing an item, the file opens. If you choose Clear, all items are removed from the list.

 

 

Rollback check

 

When you resume a file from another bot than the initial bot, you'll never be sure if the file of the last bot isn't slightly different from the initial one. With rollback check you can be 99,9% sure. Usually, XDCC Catcher does a rollback of 8192 bytes when it resumes a DCC transfer (for example, the file on your hard disk is 18192 bytes big, XDCC Catcher starts downloading from 10001 bytes and overwrite the bytes 10001 - 18192 with the "new" bytes). Earlier, this method was only used to prevent "usual" corrupted bytes (the last bytes of a DCC transfer can be corrupted, this is normal behaviour). But with rollback check, XDCC Catcher checks as well if the first half bytes of the rollback (10001 - 14096) of the "new" transfer are equal to the corresponding bytes (10001 - 14096) of the file on your hard disk. If they aren't equal, your download would become corrupted (because the "new" file is different from the file on your hard disk), therefore Catcher cancels the transfer and sets the status of your request to Fatal. If they are equal, Catcher just starts downloading. So, rollback check will make it very unlikely you'll ever get corrupt downloads again!


 

Multiple network lists

 

Network lists contain networks, servers and channels. With XDCC Catcher Pro you're able to have several network lists, for example one for MP3, one for games, one for software, etc.

In the Network lists dialog, you can create new network lists, load network lists, make a network list default (so XDCC Catcher loads this network list on startup), delete and duplicate network lists.

If you select 'Display on startup', XDCC Catcher shows the Network lists dialog every time you start XDCC Catcher. In this way, you can select what network list you would like to load on startup (for example, if you're going to download software, you load the software network list).

 

 

Control XDCC Catcher by email

 

You can remote control XDCC Catcher by sending specific messages by e-mail. XDCC Catcher parses these messages and executes the commands you've sent. XDCC Catcher replies the results of your commands. (For security reasons, you've to send a code to identify yourself.)

 

The mail address XDCC Catcher has to check for "XDCC Catcher control messages" can be entered in the Settings dialog. Please read the 'Control XDCC Catcher by mail' section in the Pro manual (included in the Pro setup package) for more information and a list of all available commands.

 

 

Search bar

 

The Search bar lets you search easily and fast on three XDCC search engines (XDCCZ, Packetnews and IRCSpy), Google and in the Packet list (bot, description, network and channel).

 

 

Advanced NickServ support


Some channels and bots require identified registered nicks to join the channel or to get a file from the bot. Most networks use a NickServ server to register and identify nicks. With XDCC Catcher it's very easy to identify and register nicks. Also, XDCC Catcher has the option to automatically identify your nick when you're connected to a network (perform on connect).

 

 

Attention needed channels


Some channels really need your attention, for example because the channel is closed or you need to identify to a registered nick to join the channel. All these channels are listed on the Attention needed channels tab.

 


Queue preferences


Three advanced queue preferences are available in XDCC Catcher Pro: Exit when finished, Shutdown when finished and Auto-clear requests.

If you select Exit when finished, XDCC Catcher closes when all requests in your local queue have been finished.

By checking Shutdown when finished, XDCC Catcher shutdowns your computer after all requests have been finished.

Finished requests are automatically removed from your local queue, if Auto-clear is checked.

 

 

Internel webbrowser

 

XDCC Catcher Pro has an internal web browser, based on Internet Explorer. You can use this browser to easily add packs from XDCC search engines to your local queue or to just surf on the web. A popup blocker is included.

 

Reconnect on disconnect

 

f you check this option (network menu), XDCC Catcher reconnects the network on a (not forced) disconnect.

 

 

Send private messages to bots

 

You enter the private message by yourself. Private messages can only be sent to bots in your Packet list.

 

 

Advanced user guide


An advanced user guide (English) is included in the XDCC Catcher Pro setup package. This user guide covers all features of XDCC Catcher Pro and includes a quick start and a brief introduction to IRC and XDCC. After you've read this manual, you know everything about XDCC Catcher. It's recommended to read at least the quick start, in which the most important and exciting features of XDCC Catcher Pro are explained.

 

 

Free technical support

 

As a Pro user, you can contact Technical support for free. Technical support answers all your questions and fixes most of your bugs. You'll always get a personal answer to your question. Technical support tries to respond within 24 hours.
