Whats so special about it? All I can find is a copy of Blubster v1.2.3. Or is it designed to be "built" by the end user?

Piolet, if you choose not to install the spyware when it asks while installing, it ecatly the same as Bluster Clean, except for the ad-banner in Piolet.

Yet if you install Blubster Clean without the install of a previous mp2p client, a couple of .ocx files aren't installed, causing the freeze at the slash screen.
Since you can install and uinstall Piolet without letting any crapware through. it is recommended you do so before install Blubster Clean, which will in most cases eliminate the splash screen problem...

me , myself and i have never had a crash with the program . i just wanted to put up another alternative. someone said it was just an old version . so im guessing the open source of it all is bogus ?

OpenLITO is my project; unfortunately it is not yet usable. Most of the MP2P protocol is understood (in fact a Perl module for disassembling or building MP2P packets is available), however, a crucial component required for interoperability with existing MP2P clients has not yet been written. This means that although the OpenLITO code can receive and interpret MP2P, it cannot send (yet).

The problem is basically that every MANOLITO packet has a checksum attached to it, calculated from the contents of the packet. If the checksum is incorrect, the packet is ignored. Since OpenLITO has no idea how to calculate the checksum, it can't send MP2P packets to other clients, making it useless in its present state. Some progress has been made in reversing the checksum algorithm but so far no implementation works 100%.

So OpenLITO is currently of interest only to programmers. If you're looking for an alternative client to use right now, nothing to see here, sorry.

OpenLITO isn't bogus, its just not ready for general usage yet. I'm surprised that news of my project reached P2P sites so quickly after submitting it to SF. :) Rest assured, once (if) OpenLITO is ready for the public, a news story will be submitted. But don't hold your breath. I'm the sole programmer at the moment, and I'm leaving for college early next any interested coders reading this: if you can program, have knowledge of checksums, and want to help make an alternative MP2P client, contact me at shellreef + mp2p[at] Thanks for your interest.

P.S.: The_Kid: Blubster 1.2.3 wasn't supposed to be included in the release. My mistake. I had it in my project directory to study how it works, but forgot to remove it before making the tarball. Today's release fixes this oversight. Sorry for the confusion.
