Why is it that Emule likes to gather files that are about to finish downloading and then continue with files that are just starting downloading, wouldn't be better to finish first the ones that are 1% or 2% away from finishing??

Probably you need to read Docs a bit and learn about queue system. That is, you must wait before you can get another piece of file.

No it wouldn't be better, since a lot of people unshare the files once they are completed.
Anyway a source sends you a part, of the file you asked him for, when you get a upload slot in his queue, no matter if the file in your side is 99 or 0 % completed.

Cheers :D

hi

With newly added files, you can download from anybody who has at least one complete chunk.
With almost completed files, you can only download from people who have the complete missing chunk. And

you mean files that are part of a series that would have essentially the same source/sources?
why start so many at a time? in this scenario, i start 2-3 of them, using priority. set one low, one med, one high. they should follow order mostly. the fewer the sources, the less i notice this works also.

@hrmwrm
try reading the docs for categories and source management (download in alphabetical order) ;)

i don't like categories, and the one series i'm downloading in order(about 8 months so far, 1 source, i'm friend slotted, powersharing as i get)doesn't fit a proper order in years. (97,98,99,00)it would give me 00 first. hence my method. but thank you.

Thanks for the answers, I guess there's really no way to download the almost finished ones. So far it looks like it's all about leaving the mule running and wait

I have read this thread and have a question that I think may be pertinent. I have one particular file that has one user with the complete file. I have been watching this user for about a week, now and something odd is happening on a regular basis that may or may not have a simple answer. When I check my queue status with this user, one time it will be, say, 465, An hour or less later, I look again, and it has miraculously jumped to 4 digits, like 4425 with no time for my client to have even asked to download. This has been occurring regularly in the time I have watched it and, as a result, I can't honestly say that I have ever successfully downloaded so much as a byte from him. This raises the question : is it possible that there is a mod (either legal or otherwise) that allows a user to pick and choose who downloads and who gets bumped in favor of a preferred downloader? I remember with the old WinMX it was possible to bump a downloader if someone you knew was waiting, so I was wondering if that option had been made available as an illegal mod and, if so, is there anything that can be done to counteract it?

You could check user Details.
It could be a bad mod, but not necessarily.
