***** MODDED BY SPIKE2 *****
First said: The name of this mod is a pun, a playing-with-words, based on the words "offi" (for "official") and "fixed".
About this mod:
This mod is thought for being used as replacement for official eMule, when you want to have all the bugfixes and code improvements from the mods, but are happy with the official client and don't need additional features.
Its source may be useful as a base for new mods, because there are nearly no new features but only fixes, optimizations and similiar.
As user you won't notice many differences from the official eMule client - if any at all. Most changes are "under the hood" and are there to improve the security, eliminate possible crashes or memleaks, to reduce CPU-load or to make using more comfortable.
* Better coping with servers
Lugdunummaster, the coder of eMule's server software, coded the aux ports support for eMule. This feature enables your client to
use the auxilliary ports the server provides. Additionally one codepart by WiZaRd, which was inspired by lugdunummaster, saves
overhead when connecting to a server without asking the server for other servers. A hardcoded default update-URL for your
server.met means no more hassle for you to get a new server.met if there are no servers in your list.
* Better security
WiZaRd's AntiCorruption saves you from saving corrupted data to your partfiles. AntiShape by netfinity reduces you vulnerability
to CreditShaping. And many AddOns to the Kademlia-Code - mainly by WiZaRd and netfinity - fight against bad nodes in the network
and improve your protection against Kad-attacks.
* Improvements to make your download go even better
Code changes for better passive source finding could get you more sources for your download providing you with more sources to
download from and upload to. Xman's "find best sources" does similiar for you.
SearchCatch will use the sources from the searchlist for the download if you decide to start to download one of the found files -
and thus it eliminates the need for researching these sources.
* Less errors
Many bugs fixed in the codes means less errors for you - many possibilities where the client could crash were eliminated so that
your eMule runs more stable than with official code. Fixing of possible memleaks could lower the amount of RAM used by eMule in
* Lower CPU-load
Many optimizations and some added code parts help to lower the CPU-load eMule causes, especially at higher upload-speeds.
* More comfortability
Spike2's ECR (Enhanced Client Recognition), now here in version 2, ends the confusing "eM Compat"-display in your lists. Now other
clients, i.e. eMulePlus or Hydranode, are correctly identified and counted in the stats. The change from official eMule's client
icons to the real icons of these clients further enhances the easy recognizing of the client types from which you are downloading
or you are uploading to.
Friendhandling from all windows makes dealing with your friends in the network easier than ever ! And showing the hash progress
in the status bar gives exact information how far the progress of finishing your complete download really is.
* More friendly to the network
IntelliFlush flushs complete downloaded parts to your disk, enabling you to upload them sooner back to the network. With
LowID2HighID-AutomaticCallBack (L2HAC) overhead is effectively saved.
The optionally usable SlotFocus enables you to upload with the best speed possible to the clients you're uploading to and reduces
the amount of open upload slots.
SourceCache caches found sources for later use, so that the overhead of searching for new sources later can be saved (the new
column "Sources in SourceCache" in your TransferList shows you how many sources are in the cache).
Transferring of full chunks is now always enabled and cannot be disabled anymore. This way you always upload full chunks to other
clients which can be re-shared to others faster. As small bonus you gain more credits at the clients you are uploading to, since
you upload more to them as with FullChunkTransfer disabled.
