    Im downloading Bully on Bitlord, and its been going all day and moving steadily. But now its at 90% and doing nothing.

    The kb/s dn is 0kb/s and liek every minute it goes to 1kb/s then back down to 0

    The kb/s up is 80kb/s and yeah the U/D Ratio is 0.7
    and the health is 0% then it goes to 100% and right back down to 0.

    Any suggestions on how to make it start going again?

    Check the number of seeds and the availability of the torrent. A seeder is a client on the network that has the complete copy of the archive. For any archive to work, there must be at least one seed to download from originally. Sometimes under certain circumstances, there may be no one seeder but enough people with all the parts to make up the whole archive, this is called a distributed copy.

    You are most likely stuck at 90% because no one is seeding the torrent (in that case you have to just wait and hope someone seeds).

    If you are able to complete the download, I encourage you seed back what you have taken (SHARE!).

    OH another thing. When your downloading the torrent and you look at how many files it has, should it have more than one?

    The number of files varies, it depends on how the uploader packaged the release. Generally, you will encounter game releases in a series of WinRAR archives OR a single image file (sometimes compressed)-- most often found in .ISO, .MDS/MDF, .IMG, .NRG file format(s).
