For anyone wondering why when you try to download something from someone it comes up with "not connected to required hub" it seems that it has to do with a TTH root. Look at the Search page. If you see the name of the hub next to the item you have decided to download, then you will be able to just double click on it there and download it. If you see the letters "TTH:" followed by a scramble of numbers, you'll have to click back into the main hub window, find the user in the user list, go to "browse user files" and find the file in there. I've looked for almost a year to find some sort of upgrade so that a TTH root can be recognised, but it seems that it does not exist. We just have to put up with what we've got. It's not a bad program. Tolerable, but still inconvenient.

The interface is a bit arachaic (you can Aquafy it in the preferences by the way) and it definitely has its quirks, but once it is configured it is the stablest and most powerful to use DC client I've found on the Mac.

I think it´s the "BEST" DC client for Mac. I used many clients on PC and all the clients on a PC are the Mac.
"dcgui" has ervything I wished!!!! Try it, and you will love it. Believe me. You have so many setups, you won´t believe it.

Best Client for OS X. Though the interface is a bit difficult to handle, but it has so many setting possibilities which makes your client to join any hub you want, for example the TAG switch. Many hub requires this option. Good software.

For Mac version only

This program has to be one of the few unwanted necessities for Macintosh file sharing.

The interface is the poorest I've seen or used in any environment, and is akin to working wth Windows 3.1 without the pretty graphics. The menu bars and window bars look like a rudamentary gui interface from 1988. The navigation through hubs and user sharelists is difficult to learn and, in parts, counterintuitive. Buttons for almost any task are nonexistant, so if you do not have a two button mouse, it adds a world of hurt.

Alas, there is no other real program for DCing on a mac. The Neo Modus version is simply banned from almost all hubs, as it does not transmit a 'tag' file. So this 'open heart surgery with a worn out baseball bat' of a program is what is left.

I must say, though, that it does what it does very well. It has rarely crapped out on me, and it seems to have no problems with connections. Even the preferences are rather extensive, making it rather easy to customize almost all aspects of the application. Again, if you know what you are doing.

In all, this program feels as though they found out their beta version worked just fine and stopped before any final release, though if you want a stable file sharing program for direct connect, it does it's job.

Go to the developers' website. They have done a lot of work to improve dcgui and the version 3.2 isn't bad. It is better than Direct Connect 1.1.
