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.

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.

I've been using it for almost a year, and I may say it really does it's job very well.
Just need to get used to it.
Hoping for the update of this version to released.

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.

Possibly the most badly designed piece of software every created, and an excellent example of what happens when software developers don't understand even the most fundamental principles of interface design.

This application is for the most tedious geeks only. It is, without a doubt, the worst UI I've seen so far this year. Incomprehensible, buggy, ugly, insulting, and abusive.

If you really MUST be part of the Direct Connect community and your time is not worth much to you then I'm told lots of things are possible with this app. But anyone over the age of 20 or with a life will probably find this a lot more effort than it could possibly be worth.

To paraphrase Red Green... you need a license to drive a car, but they'll sell a programming environment to any idiot.
