Download Post when enough parts become available

Postby ItsMe » Thu Oct 06, 2016 11:53 pm

I would love to see an option to where I can right click on an incomplete file set that is incomplete and select "Cue for Download when Available" or something to this effect.

That way once the enough of the file with the inclusion of Par files have propagated the server It will start downloading.

Cheers

Well, the watch lists will only add a completed download to the download list. That doesn't help you though if you're casually browsing.

It's a good idea. I'll just have to think about how that would work in reality. Maybe something like a manual watch list item that you can add files you're interested in to which gets updated with header downloads.

The problem is the files can come from Search, NZB or Headers so any solution would have to work in all cases. Another problem is deciding when to actually try to repair and finish the download.
