This program appears to have a built-in BitTorrent client which tries to download stuff and let other computers in as soon as I launch it. Nowhere can I find any information on WHY it has a built-in BitTorrent client, or what it's trying to download. So, I'm not entirely comfortable running it.

The client is used as part of an authentication procedure - if you have certain versions of the games emulated on DVDs or similar, Daphne will then download the video and program code you need to run the game, without you having to convert video yourself (as used to happen). You can block it if you want, but it makes it far more difficult to play.
