RatioMaster 0.4.2.0 (Can be used with uTorrent 1.8.2). This is the newest version available and was released 25/3-09.
*** Intro ***
RatioMaster is an application designed for spoofing uploads on BitTorrent trackers.
It connects to a tracker and behaves like a normal BitTorrent client, but without
actually uploading to / downloading from other peers in the swarm. It reports to the
tracker that it\'s uploading (or downloading or both, it\'s your choice) at a certain
rate, thus making it useful for artificially increasing your ratio on certain sites
that track a user\'s overall ratio (total uploaded/total downloaded).
RatioMaster has hardcoded emulations for the most commonly used BitTorrent clients,
but it is also able to parse external files for emulation settings, thus making it easily
extensible for your favorite client and easy to update when new versions of said clients
are released. The client files (extension \".client\") are actually renamed XML files and
the syntax should be pretty straight-forward. The emulation layer includes support for
parameter order in GETs, reproduction of HTTP headers, generation of application-specific
peer_ids and keys and more. RatioMaster can also parse the tracker reannounce time from
the tracker\'s HTTP response, and combined with the fact that you can specify down and
up rates makes it pretty hard to detect by any anti-cheat scripts, if not downright
impossible. Other features, like a TCP listener (so as to appear connectable on the
tracker\'s peerlist) and a leecher counter (so as to stop any uploads when a torrent
has 0 leechers) also contribute to RatioMaster\'s spoofing abilities.
Starting from version 1.6 RatioMaster have integrated Memory Reader tool that usefull
when you want to read exact Peer ID, Key, Port and Number of peers announce parameters
from your regular torrent client (like uTorrent,Azureus,Bitcomet or others). Look for
the \'Memory Reader\' button in Advanced Tab.
Command Line support
Starting from version 1.7 RatioMaster supports command line options.This feature is useful
if you want to run several torrents from batch file or shortcuts with predefined setting:
Possible keys :
/minimize - RM will start minimized to tray.
/start - RM will load latest torrent (or the one provided in command line) and
automatically start it
/downloadRate, /uploadRate - RM will set download and upload speed
/percent - RM will set finished percent (0% = start leeching, 100% = seeding)
/hide - RM will start in hidden mode, minimized and no tray icon .Use at your own
risk, as far as i know the only way to stop it, is to kill process in Task Manager.
Examplesis a full path to the torrent file) :
- will load the torrent
- will load the torrent from torrentpath and run it with default options
ratiomaster.exe/start /uploadRate:250 /downloadRate:200 /percent:100
- will load the torrent and start it with 250 upload,200 download,and finished 100%
- will set provided value,all others will be default from settings
ratiomaster.exe /minimized /start
- will start ratiomaster in minimized mode with last loaded torrent.
Saving individual torrent settings
Starting from version 1.7 RatioMaster saves individual settings for each torrent and uses
those settings next time that you are loading same torrent.
Setting files are stored in \'/Torrents Config\' subfolder of the ratiomaster.exe folder.
Starting from version 1.8 Ratiomaster supports different languages by using text unicode files.
Those files are stored in /lng subfolder of the ratiomaster.exe folder and should have an extension \'lng\'.
Users are encouraged to create their own translations using english.lng as a template.
RatioMaster requires that you\'ve got the .NET Framework version 2 installed.
You can get it from Microsoft:
*** How to use ***
1. Get a .torrent file associated with the tracker you want to spoof.
2. Load or Drag/Drop that file into RatioMaster.
3. Change the settings in the Options group to your liking: upload speed,
download speed (set to 0 to spoof upload only), finished (how much of the file do you
want to appear that you have - set to 100% if you want to appear as a seeder)
4. Choose \'Client Simulation\' in Advanced Tab to be the same type as your regular torrent client.
5. Optionally, look through the Advanced and Network tabs and see if you need anything
changed there, like using a specific port or announcing through a proxy server.
Most users won\'t need to change anything here.
6. Press the Start button and watch the bytes start rolling.
7. After a while, when you decide you\'ve spoofed enough, press the Stop button to announce
to the tracker that you\'re ending your session.
*** Things to remember ***
First of all, don\'t use very high upload speeds. Some trackers check sessions for very big
upload rates. Using a 6 MB/s upload rate when your IP belongs to an ISP who only has a 512
kbps plan is plain stupid. Check the moofdev forums on more info on maximum safe speeds
reached by other users on different trackers.
Never spoof uploads on a tracker with few peers. If there are only 2 leechers and they\'re
downloading at a maximum of 300 kB/s, and you\'re spoofing an upload of 2 MB/s, it will
Keep the software up-to-date. Sometimes bugs are found that may get you banned on sites.
RatioMaster includes an automatic version checker and will notify you when a new version
is released. Update!
If you\'re going to take part in discussions on the moofdev forums, or other forums that
deal with this sort of software, don\'t use the same username you use on trackers.
We\'ve had instances of tracker admins visiting the forums to see whether any of our users
were members on their trackers and... well, you can assume what happened next.
Read the forums. Sometimes users will report that a certain tracker simply cannot be
fooled. It\'s better to stay informed than be banned on your favourite tracker.
Last, but not least, only spoof when you NEED to. By cheating on a torrent,
you\'re disrupting the swarm and going against the spirit of p2p.
Unless you really need to increase your ratio and there\'s no better way (short of paying
money - pay2leech trackers are a lot worse than cheating peers), don\'t cheat.
