    Probably a newb question, but I was curious if it was possible to download the same exact file from 2 different sites. I figure to increase download speeds.

    if you want the speed increased, just find a tracker that has a good speed like SCC, FTN, or ScT, surely you'll get a maximum speed there

    No you cannot, unless you assign each torrent its own files. Writing to the same file from two torrents with diff pieces should corrupt it. So just split the files, so each torrent only downloads half of the files. Then stop and force recheck, and seed both files away.

    Potential problems. diff sites often don't have perfect copies of each other sites rars, so when you recheck, it will show the file as 98% complete.


    Someone invite me to fsc please

    How often have you had that happen? Every single time that I do multiple seeds it's never a problem. Neither should adding multiple trackers to the download, just make sure that things like sfv's and samples are included in both.
    Ask me about my self-esteem!
