The latest portable version of Tixati- 1.99, contains both x32 and x64 builds so there's no need to install the x64 version any more.

Something to be noted with the portable version, if you use categories with your downloads to organize them, the paths for the categories folders are stored as absolute, not relative, meaning you'd have to manually change the path every time you move Tixati.

Portability categories issue fixed in 2.12.

Tryed this software, but it locked several times. I really wanna like this software cause it reminds me of ol WinMX interface.
I dont know why the software needs to be so huge (19MB).

"The program includes a clean, simple interface ..."

actually, i find the UI to be anything but simple and clean

that said, Tixati is thee most powerful and efficient BitTorrent client for Windows that i am aware of that still has a GUI

@Checker
Sorry ;) It seems that before I posted the message you had already updated it but I didn't see it (refresh would have helped). I know that you do great work with the updates but since there were two updates of Tixati in a single day I thought you might have omitted it, but you didn't ;). Once again- sorry ;)

v2.34 released !

FYI: Tixati (the official portable package) is not completely stealth, it registers Magnet-Links, Torrents and "dsc" in the registry.

v2.47

Is it better than µtorrent ?

__philippe 2017-02-23 19:11

Nitpick-of-the-day...;-)

Didn't trust Tixati's ample 131MB footprint truly qualified as "lightweight";
just took the liberty to rub out the deceptive quantifier from the main entry.

v2.53

smaragdus 2017-02-24 07:00

@__philippe
In terms of resource usage on my System Tixati is relatively light, at least compared to qBittorrent- as I am writing this Tixati (x64) uses about 50 MB of RAM, while qBittorrent- about 165 MB of RAM. So at least on my system Tixati is more than 3 times lighter than qBittorrent.

v2.53

__philippe 2017-02-24 12:26

@smaragdus
No contest in terms of comparative memory usage.

Was merely referring to Tixati's formerly stated "131MB (uncompressed)" binary file size.
In my book, such a size is anything but lightweight.

But...wait a minute...

Checking Tixati's actual package contents, my inner Doubting Thomas just discovered:

Uncompressed
Size (bytes)

 36,480,760  tixati_Windows64bit.exe
 32,828,192  tixati_Linux64bit
 31,236,004  tixati_Linux32bit
            344  tixati_portable_mode.txt
 38,949,112  tixati_Windows32bit.exe

139,494,412

So, the original main entry statement "131MB (uncompressed)" size was actually referring to
the SUM TOTAL of the multiple PE executables supplied for various platforms !
Slightly deceptive if you ask me ...

In this specific case, we should perhaps re-instate the main entry as:

Tixati v2.53
Windows32bit.exe 39Mb (uncompressed)

...for the sake of complying with the Federal Trade Commission "Truth in Advertising" campaign...;-)

I think it was not a wise idea that Tixati developers packaged the portable versions for Linux and Windows in one and the same archive- more traffic for them and for the users- I suppose a small number of users need both Windows and Linux versions. What surprises me is that the x32 build (tixati_Windows32bit.exe) is bigger- 38,037 KB than the x64 build (tixati_Windows64bit.exe)- 35,626 KB.

v2.53

smaragdus 2017-02-24 20:33

Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).

v2.53

__philippe 2017-02-24 21:12

@billon

Thanks for your quietly updating Tixati's main entry, following the above agitation...;-)

  • "Uncompressed size": revised total footprint of relevant Win PE binaries
  • "How-to-extract": added pertinent advice to discard irrelevant Unix binaries

v2.53

__philippe 2017-02-24 23:33

@smaragdus
(Tixati is not "72MB (uncompressed)"- it is either 38 MB (x32) or 36 MB (x64).)

Quite so, strictly speaking...

BUT...

Currently, the "Uncompressed size" field is formally defined in the entry form as:
   "Total size of application files when fully unarchived/uncompressed".

We don't really want to open a whole 'nother can of worms about what exactly ought to be the appropriate scope of the "uncompressed size" field definition, with implication for every current entry in the Data Base, do we ?

...;-)
