This thread is based on VQB's old thread which is out of date. Since I don't like editing his posts I have made this new one based on his!

...

[*]How can I see my credits?
There isn't a simple answer for this one as credits are on a user by user basis rather than a transferable unit. The shortest answer is to compare your total UL to total DL (show in statistics). The higher the ratio of UL to DL the better your credit (but the worse your DL have been). With a specific user you can look in the user details dialog (right-click on another user) and compare your their DL (from you == your UL) with your own DL.

...

Remember that the people who support in this forum do it out of their own free will so be nice to them and don't ask questions already answered before because supporters really hate that! Have fun...

Hi,

I have introduced a lot of my friends to eMule, and I get asked this (and the similar question of "How can I hack emule to give me unlimited credits!?" :-P) almost every time... So I thought I might contribute my answer here for all.. Although it is probably simplistic (and long winded...) and not entirely technically correct! Feel free to shorten/summarize it and use it any way that benefits the eMule community.

***

Think of it like you would an accountant in "real life." Your accountant keeps detailed records of every transaction, how much you owe to others, how much they owe to you, et cetera. You can use this information to figure out how much you are owed, and how much you owe--But what happens when your accounting books differ from someone elses? If your accountant says you owe XYZ $100, but XYZ says you owe them $500, who are you going to believe? Your own accountant, of course. Just like XYZ will believe their own data, insisting yours is wrong.

eMule operates much the same way. It does it's own credit accounting, and it will believe what it's own accounting shows, not what any other client tries to tell it. This is why you cannot "hack" eMule to give yourself unlimited credit. You can make eMule think you have more credit with XYZ, but if XYZ's books say you don't, XYZ won't listen to you. Think about it. Do you want your eMule to listen to XYZ if they said they have unlimited credit with you, and can download anything they want from you, without uploading to you?

eMule was not programmed that way, and if it was... It would be work against you, not in your favour. Otherwise, everyone on the network would be able to tell your client you owe them 4326355474546 credits, pay up now! The eMule programmers, in their ultimate wisdom, programmed eMule to do it's own accounting, trust it's own data, and not trust anyone else. This is for your benefit, security, and protection, as well as for everyone else.

This is also why it is difficult to calculate how much credit you have. You can make a guess based on the data your own eMule has collected, but the only way to know for sure how much credit you have with another client is to have access to their accounting data. And it is entirely possible that while you may think you have a certain amount of credit with them, their data may disagree. They will grant you credit based on their own data, not on what you tell them it should be.

The moral of the story is... You can only make a good guess about how much credit you have, on a client-to-client (peer-to-peer) basis, but not network-wide. There is no global credit accounting stored on some special server, every client does it's own accounting.

PS: DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANY eMule THAT CLAIMS UNLIMITED CREDITS! Since the only way to get unlimited credits is to tamper with the other client's data files, and since you do not normally have access to those files, you cannot obtain unlimited credits. Additionally, the eMule source code is publically available as open source. Hundreds of programmers can and have looked over the code, insuring it is reasonably secure against such hacks.

It stands to reason that anyone who has the skill to "hack" eMule would be familiar with these concepts, so why do they offer such a client? To hack YOU! Those hacked clients they offer are either trojans which give them access to your files, or they have hacked accounting files built in that give them unlimited credit with you. There is no benefit in it for you.

What I would like to see enhanced in the first post of this thread is a clear list of the "helpful information" that people should supply when asking for help. The post in the German Support Forum has such a good list that could simply be translated and added here. I am referring to the "So posted ich richtig" post:
http://forum.emule-p...showtopic=40340


The first post in this section is a little vague on what is useful information.

Thanks.

Hi people...I am putting thi post here as suggested by "Tijnenzo", an administrator helper.
Well, suddenly I can not connected to any server anymore, and each line that describes each one of the servers do never change to black color. What happened?
It is so strange cause I´ve been using eMule during almost 2 years, and it never happen before.
Tijnenzo, suggested me to change de "server.met" file. I´ve tried what he´d suggested, but the problem is not solved.
The problem still keep on...always when the program tries a connection with a server, the following answer is shown in the log: "the server XYZ appears to be dead"
So, how could I solve this unexpected and incomprehensible problem. guys?
PS.: The problem is also occurring with other users in the same city. Tks. :confused:

I didn't tell you to go here.

Also stick to the topic you've created, it doesn't help you to post more topics of the same in different places.

Please go back to the original topic.

Tijnenzo, I am so sorry, but I´ve understood exactly this when I´ve read what you!ve written: "Give us the info asked in this link: Requested information!".
What I´ve undestood is that I should give you the information I needed through that link. Sorry. :(

This is not a thread to ask specific questions. This thread is meant as a guide on how to post questions properly by providing the right information from the start.

Please repost your question in the appropriate part of the forum. I suggest the "Network & ID related" forum.

What part of "Read this before starting a new thread!, How to get support for Emule!" and the info in the first post, especially the forum rules did you not understand ?

You can read, do you ?
