Incorrect file sizes in search results

Post by KL3I3 » Sat Oct 29, 2016 7:14 pm

I've been using Torrent Rover for a while now.
What is noticed is that the file sizes in the search results do not match the actual torrent content size.
I'm currently using version 1.1.5 Stable.

Are the size mismatches coming from a specific search site? Look at the Site column in the results. If you hover over the icon, it'll tell you which site it is.

I am getting the same with version 1.1.9. See the image below.

I cant seem to find any obvious relationship between the reported and sizes and actual sizes. Although larger reported sizes generally means larger actual sizes.

My results show that torrent at 1.6GB. Is it prossible that you are in a different country (Brazil maybe) where the "," character is used as a decimal separator? This could confuse the math algorithm.

Yes, I am in Denmark and "," is used as a decimal point. Is it possible to make a fix?

Yes, there is a way to force a certain culture setting. I'll add it to my to-do list. It may not be fixed in the next version though.

It may be related to the decimal separator.
I'm in Brazil and (as in most non-English speaking countries) decimal separator is comma.
Sizes reported are incredibly huge (ten and hundreds of gigabytes).

I'll add a way to control the decimal separator in Preferences to fix this issue. Should be in the next version.
