Wouldn't connect to network, so used this app here to fix it: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/other-limewire-clone-versions/101773-connection-fixes-various-clients-including-cabos-acqlite-all-limewire-clones.html Now works fine aside from buggy issues mentioned in my previous post.

Works fine in Snow Leopard and Java 1.6. Only once had a connection problem but after obtaining a fresh connection file from Gnutella forums, Acqlite connects in a flash every time. But yes, the command-z is obviously a bug, do not use that command with Acqlite. Simply manually delete/correct your text.

Unfortunately, Acqlite is getting a bit long in the tooth and while it still works, it's quite buggy and almost not worth using if you value system stability. For instance, I've found that since I've been using Mac OS 10.6.8 and the last build of 0.4.2(debug2) that you can find here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/acqlite/files/Acqlite/ That java gets stuck and will keep running and mess with Safari and other things including slowing down some computer operations. I have to go in and quit it from terminal (or you can quit java from activity monitor). This doesn't happen every time I run Acqlite, but every now and then expecially if Acqlite crashes. Also, if I do command-z (undo) in Acqlite it crashes it immediately for some reason. Hope there will be an update to this again someday.

Been using this app for a long time, several versions. It has always come through for me. Straightforward, intuitive interface, easy to use. It has never crashed on me and I've had it installed on many different Macs. I'm very glad it still works on OS X 10.7.1.

I was so excited to see a new program available to replace acquisition and frostwire (limewire), which stopped working for me. However after downloading and doing a few searches and getting absolutely no results, I'm frustrated. I thought maybe I was searching for something too obscure, but how can you do a search for Bob Dylan and get zero results????

Just a warning. I pasted the wrong text into the search field and went I hit command-z to undo it, it completely locked up Acqlite and I had to force-quit the app. Hopefully it'll get fixed later?

Simple, fast and now... STABLE! (at least for me, on 10.6.3) Acqlite has really evolved since the last time I used it, more than one year ago. It's currently the only Gnutella client with a native OS X GUI, and that alone would've crowned it the king of OS X Gnutella clients, since both LimeWire and FrostWire are STILL Java... It's also faster than any other Gnutella client I've tried. It didn't use to be like that some time ago, but I have to say Acqlite is kickass as an application, even if Gnutella is dead.

I agree with Sunday's review: Filter does not work, main window resizes itself, but my main beef is that somehow I feel I get BETTER and FASTER results in Cabos! Also less junk! I thought AcqLite had the same engine as Cabos, am I wrong then? Still, every update makes this app better! Kudos to the developer and please address the bugs as soon as you can!

I'm having a problem with the latest version of Acqlite and I hope that someone can help. I have been using version 0.2.9 and, although with crashes, i have been able to download most of the things i needed, but, with version 0.3.1 I can't. The problem is as follows: 0.3.1 connects to 4 peers in the network (5 in the older 0.2.9 version) I do a search, I get search results, doubleclick a file, it starts downloading and at some point i notice that the downloadspeed starts dropping and suddenly my network connection icon in Acqlite shows grey, no peer connections anymore and it just idles then, doing nothing anymore.......... :( My internetconnection just works, it's just Acqlite then. I'm on adsl connection. Version 0.9.2 works, although it crashes very often, does anyone know what my problem is or what i can do to solve this? TIA Paul

Acqlite 0.3 still prevents shutdown and restarts from occurring properly if it's running at the time. I made the following changes to the 0.29 code that resolved it: AqApp(Dialogs).m // me: Added replyToApplicationShouldTerminate, removed startShutdown (no longer needed here) - (void) sheetDidDismiss: (NSWindow*)sheet returnCode: (int)returnCode contextInfo: (void*)contextInfo; { if (returnCode == NSAlertDefaultReturn) { [NSApp replyToApplicationShouldTerminate: YES]; } else { [NSApp replyToApplicationShouldTerminate: NO]; } } AqApplicationController.m // me: Moved startShutdown to applicationWillTerminate, improved NSApplicationTerminateReply usage - (NSApplicationTerminateReply) applicationShouldTerminate: (id) sender; { if ([[AqCoreController instance] coreWasTerminated]) return NSTerminateNow; if (![[AqCoreController instance] coreWasLaunched]) return NSTerminateCancel; /* warn quitting */ if ([[AqDownloadsController instance] active] && [defaults boolForKey: @"kAqWarnQuit"]) { [self warnQuit: nil modalDelegate: self]; return NSTerminateLater; } return NSTerminateNow; } - (void) applicationWillTerminate: (id) notification; { [self startShutdown]; [self updateDockIcon: NO]; if ([AqSidebarController instance]) [[AqSidebarController instance]->window saveFrameUsingName: @"kAqMainWindow"]; [[AqQueryController instance] applicationWillTerminate]; [[AqSidebarController instance] applicationWillTerminate]; [[AqFilterController instance] applicationWillTerminate]; [[AqContentViewController instance] applicationWillTerminate]; } - (void) startShutdown; { /* show shutdown panel */ if ([self isOS103OrHigher]) { [[AqSidebarController instance]->window makeKeyAndOrderFront: self]; [shutdownProgress setUsesThreadedAnimation: YES]; [shutdownProgress startAnimation: nil]; [NSApp beginSheet: shutdownPanel modalForWindow: [AqSidebarController instance]->window modalDelegate: self didEndSelector: nil contextInfo: nil]; } else { [shutdownProgress setUsesThreadedAnimation: YES]; [shutdownProgress startAnimation: nil]; [shutdownPanel setTitle: @""]; [shutdownPanel center]; [shutdownPanel makeKeyAndOrderFront: self]; } // me: How can we wait for this to finish before quitting?

I don´t if that´s a problem with my macmini 80 GB 512 RAM 10.3.9 OS,but my favorite P2P Acqlite has an issue that i need some tips. Does Acqlite uses a lot,and i mean really a lot CPU usage? Cause when i´m running it sometimes the computer "freezes" like for 5/10 minutes although doesn´t crashes and downloads proceed properly. I can´t use any other app. when it´s doing his job and with Cabos and other ones thar doesn´t happen. Can anyone help me or have the same "problem"?

I think the program is great for the following reasons: 1. Lightweight: small footprint and run from any folder - you can run directly from disc image. 2. Simple interface: devoid of excessive "Drawers" and other such bells and whistles. Also, app looks nice. 3. Intuitive Interface: the search filter is really great. Simply type your search terms, and then use the category filters across the top to filter restuls. 4. Effective: I got tons of results, and the items I chose to download began downloading immediately. My download rate once I had a few things in queue was over 150K/s sustained. Downloaded 20 music files in about 10-15 mins from opening disk image. No features are missing here for me, but I suppose there may be those who would want more "statistics" readouts - which I think simply slow the app down. I had no problem shutting down or anything else in terms of performance or stability. I am running updated Tiger.

I quite like this one, at last a free version of my previously favourite Filesharing App. I did the localisation for Acquisition for quite a long time, and the programmer managed to get me to quit with not supporting localizers in any meaningful way (not even telling us, what he changed, so we had to go over the whole app in order to find out how to give him more market share... naive days in retrospect). So I am quite happy, that a completely free and GPLled alternative for MacUsers who prefer native interfaces exists again. And for all those, who are angry, that acqlite needs Java: Acquisition does so too, and Acquisition uses code from Limewire without clearly saying so on its webpage. Without LimeWire Acquisition wouldn't work at all, and the same is true for Acqlite, but the developer of Acqlite is honest about it. I somehow miss the sidebar, because it is, what set Acquisition apart (very efficient) and the search-results-pane should imho be sticky (looks a bit strange, when half of teh window is epty). Also it isn't yet as intuitive as Acquisition, but having it completely open source and gpl outweights these drawbacks. If I wasn't in the developement of Phex since I quit with Acquisition, I'd most probably sign up for this. A great piece of Software!

for those force-quitting... i'd been doing the same, but after you try to initially quit and the app seems to hang, go to menu bar to select quit again. for me, just selecting the menubar gets acqlite to finish the quitting process i know it's not ideal, but at least you don't have to force quit (something i try to avoid)

Getting closer---unfortunately, in 10.4.2 as soon as a file completes its download, it doesn't go to iTunes, but immediately goes right into a fresh download cycle. If you let this app run, you'll end up with the Incomplete folder filled with hudreds of copies of the same file. acqlite will rock when all of the bugs are worked out of it!

The new developer of acqlite removed a lot of the cool things about acq that made it great. For instance, the handy progress bar that would overlay the dock icon is gone, as well as the status bar at the bottom of the window. Also, a lot of the features which worked in the last version (iTunes integration, for one) don't work now. He even removed the ability to automatically transfer movies to teh movies folder and pictures to the pictures folder. Come on! It's great to see acqlite back and running again, but please don't try to make it just like Acquisition. It's better than that.

This has excellent potential. I've been using Cabos for over a year, and Acqlite has a much nicer interface with a lot fuller information panels. But if the preference is set to "Play song upon download completion," the app will crash. Unchecking this (and just importing the complete file) keeps it running. With small bugs like this knocked out, Acqlite will beat Cabos hands down as the best P2P for Mac OS X.

This version of Acqlite is legit. heavy_baby has taken over development of the App with the permission of Pozytron. I used Acqlite a while back and I liked it but when development ceased I moved over to Xfactor because I like to use an App that is being actively developed. The new version of Acqlite seems to handle Gnuttela than Xfactor, I certainly see better download speeds and connections. I'll continue to use Acqlite as my primary p2p app with Xfactor in the background for OpenFT and Ares. Does anyone know how to increase the amount of Peers that you can connect to? I seem to remember this being possible in the old Acqlite but I can't access the forums to see how it was done.

The new acqlite is wonderful. The interface has been redone and is now sleek and easy to use. It finds files better than any other p2p app and fixes the 'clear results and begin search' crash as far as I can tell. The only big major huge problem preventing this app from being usable and replacing my other p2p clients... It now crashes every time it removes a file from the download list (such as if you set it to do so upon completion of a download) which renders it fairly unusable. Hopefully this problem will be corrected soon, so that I can start using it -_-.

I love it. The best Gnutella cliente for Mac IMHO. Still works here with the lastest system software (OS X 10.3.5, Java 1.4.2_Update1). =)

the newest java update (1.4.2 update 1) seems to have killed this once again. too bad developement seems to have stopped since it was my app of choice. fyi-- xfactor just stole most poison's code... so just go with poison.

try Xfactor if you can't run acqlite due to java version it's quite same. I won't rate this but acqalite used to be my favourite app for dl.

Excellent Program, easy to use, no complex configurations. The first time it launched dont connect, I change the connection type to Local Network, relaunch and voila, everything is working fine. Maybe need a more advanced search options, but it works for me.

Works great on 667Mhz DVI PB G4 under 10.2.8. With the re-write to increase connections below, I regularly get 32 networks. I think someone else posted this as well - it's so great to not need to open VPC and KazaaLite to find filez...

This used to work. In this version it never connects to any peers, always says "0 active" in the Network list.

New version launches with 1.4.2 java but it doesn't work right. Results/downloads keep disappearing from window or won't even display at all.

Can't launch the application because it needs Java 1.4.1 and I've got Java 1.4.2 installed. This is just plain stupid.

this is a great app and so much better than the likes of limewire, poison and others. But i find that i cannot browse the web or ftp sites, or even get my mail while acqlite is running - it seems to make so many connections that it kills everything else! Of course, quitting acqlite means i can carry on, but it's a tad disapointing mefinks - i've a 1mb dsl line that gets tied up by this app! Is there a way to stop this? acqlite is superb, but how can i limit the no. of connections? (not downloads/uploads)

After the latest update, Acqlite will not run. It wants me to install Version 1.4.1 to use it. I am running Java 2. This is a great app and I would hate to not be able to use it anymore on the account of an update like that. Please fix it! Thanks!

You guys who are having problems with acqlite and java 1.4.2 need to use acqlite 0.32c. As I write this, I notice that MacUpdate is linking 0.32 (not c) on its Download Now link. acqlite 0.32c is linked in the Related Links section of this same page. I've been using it for some time, it works, it is "unofficial" in that it was compiled by someone else, I believe, because the original developer isn't all that interested anymore.

I also can't run this because it requires Java 1.4.1, and I have 1.4.2.

Well having read all those reviews I thought I was in for a treat but lo and behold the programme wouldn't start. It came up with a nice little box telling me that it required Java 1.4.1 and that Software Update would happily provide with the means to upgrade to it. Thing is I'm running Java 1.4.2. This is really a complaint about the programme so I won't rate it or anything. But PLEASE will someone do an update of it soon so those in my position can benefit from what sounds like a miraculous piece of software? I thank you.

Probably the best interface of any Mac P2P app I have seen. If you have used/liked Acquisition, get acqlite! Much better than Acquisition, and it doesn't nag you to pay, either! Very stable. Only complaint is that it doesn't return as many files as Poisoned. Still a great app. Lots of features and very simple to use, too.

First P2P which has worked under X. Beautiful interface. Straight to the top of the freeware pantheon!

The BEST! If you use a Mac because you like the fact a designer has thought about USER INTERFACE then get this program to download your P2P stuff. I get tons of downloads as a added bonus. Its FREE and very stable.

Version 0.23c seems to have fixed the Java bug that previous users have reported. Overall this is a great little piece of software. It gets many props because its free as well. The only possible areas for improvements here would be in the areas that programs like "Kazaa Lite K++" have made, which are mainly hacked programs to allow for even easier acquisition of any type of media (always reports highest number of files served [1000+] to networks, auto retrys download requests, and other somewhat underhanded tactics to get those hard to find files).

This is the best software of it's kind out there I think, but the developer really should change it's name, since it took me a half hour to find the damn thing.

make sure you get version 0.23c. Works great. I've even been able to change the source code to get up to 200 hosts. but the developer was doing the right thing to not allow very many: you need a lot of bandwidth to maintain a high host number.
