Myster is a file sharing utility. Similar projects include Napster, Hotline and Gnutella. Myster allows you to share your files with others and download files being shared by others on the Myster Network, over the internet. But Myster isn't just any file sharing utility.

The Myster protocol and application have been developed in response to a cry for a peer-to-peer file sharing system which efficiently operates without the need for a central logistics server. By answering that cry, Myster takes the best of features in other file sharing utilities, raising the bar to a new level in distributed file sharing over the more...

What's New

Version PR8:
  • Reorganized and refined the Search window controls
  • 1 user can no longer hog all a server's download spots
  • A MultiColumn Liste has replaced the single file list in the Connection window (now sorts)
  • New tab graphics in the Server Stats window. They now actually look like tabs (hurray)
  • The search engine now uses 20 searcher threads instead of 15 -

couldn't find a thing. UI is ugly as sin... no, it's uglier than sin. p2p has so many better looking/better performing apps.

Interesting...

On the down side, I got far fewer results than on Gnutella, but on the upside it was the ONLY P2P program to penetrate my University Firewall, so for that I'm happy! Slow but gets there in the end

Works fine, but I don't get a lot of results for searches. It would seem there aren't too many Myster file-sharers out there. On the plus side, Myster's bare-bones interface now has a few more features.

The included game plug-in, "Space Smilies", is a fun (and funny?listen to the audio while playing) Space Invaders clone. Hint: you can only have one of your laser blasts on screen at a time-- if you fire again, your existing shot disappears.

I'm waiting for when a true OX GUI Open FastTrack client for Mac appears (sorry, I don't like using the command line). iSwipe and MLdonkey are getting there.

Very fast downloads but... why does it have to crash so often? I'll be checking daily for the next version. Myster has real promise.

Myster is the first true Mac equivalent to Kazaa. It allows for multiple threading searchs in multiple file genres. Its interface is a little more advanced than windows based peer to peer networks, but it is manageable enough. The file downloading scheme does not allow the user to easily pick a downloading point (if you wanted to keep shares and downloads separate) and forces you to use the Myster folders as a means of sorting. Other than that its only drawback lies on the user end of the connection. More users will not slow the system, rather it will increase the supply of files availible.
