LDC++ 1.00 2a
After a brief and seamless installation process, you will probably notice that the app’s interface is not very different from other products in this category, however there is some comfort to be found in using a familiar GUI, especially for novice users. Moreover, it is completely customizable, seeing that you can change the font, text style, text and background color to match your preferences.
Connect to a hub and share items
First and foremost, you are required to enter a nickname, e-mail address and description, as well as the connection type (which is not automatically configured). It is possible to input one or several addresses manually, connect to them and start searching. Moreover, you can access a public hubs list, configure it and add them to Favorites, so that you can find them faster.
You should know that due to the program’s nature, aside from downloading items you also have to share files and folders. It is important to keep in mind that hubs have the right to set the minimum quantity of information each user must share.
Filter your search, view results and customize some settings
An advanced search function is incorporated, which lets individuals also configure some filters. To be more precise, you can select size, connection type and file extension, and display only users with free slots or the items with TTH root.
Results are brought up in a timely manner, along with information such as name, number of hits and users, file format, size, path, available slots, connection, hub, IP and upload speed.
Network statistics are also available, while from the settings panel, it is possible to customize a large number of options. For example, you can change colors and fonts, adjust download and upload speeds, setup up sound notifications, and configure segment downloading.
Performance and conclusion
CPU and memory usage is low at all times, which means that the computer’s performance is not going to be affected in any way. Jobs are completed in a fair amount of time without popping up errors, crashing or freezing.
All in all, LDC++ is a pretty efficient Direct Connect client, easily comparable with the others out there, from various standpoints, including downloading speeds and number of options made available.
