DC++, previously known as DC Plus Plus, is a program that has been specially thought to allow users to exchange files through the system of Direct Connect, being able to keep us connected with all those users of this app, through the use of hubs, the classic rooms in which who creates them put certain rules when sharing all kind of contents.
That is to say, to take advantage of the downloads that this platform can offer us, we will also have to offer different content or files that allow other users to benefit from our arrival in each of these chat rooms. For the rest, its operation does not differ too much from the file-sharing of any other program of the same segment, so you should not worry about it.
If you have previously used Direct Connect, understanding the functions of DC++ will be much easier since most of them are the same. However, it adds some others that make the user experience a complete one. For example, you can connect to several rooms or hubs simultaneously without losing sight that the interface is more efficient and simple, so it is also recommended for novice users.
In this sense, you have to consider that usually the hubs or DC++ channels are thematic, so we recommend that you check what are the contents that are shared in them, so in this way you know perfectly not only if other users will serve the ones you can propose, but also if you will get good content in return.
A huge advantage that this platform has over other similar ones is related to the fact that we are talking about a free program, open-source, which means that we will never have to pay a penny to use it. You have to add that it has no annoying advertising or adware or any additional content that you have to download when you install it on your computer.
Then, we find many of those functions that are really useful when we think of download programs, such as the possibility of pausing downloads before they are completed or resume them at the time we deem necessary. At the same time, you can also manage all your friends and favorite hubs to have direct access to them without going through all available within the program.
Unlike what happens in Direct Connect, one of the main advantages of this application is that if we are downloading content from a particular user and he leaves the room, we can continue with the download automatically from another person present in the hub, without losing the content that interests us so much. In Direct Connect, this was impossible, and often we were deprived of carrying out certain downloads.
Regarding that program, you will see that the resource consumption of DC++ is much lower. In addition to the download, times have been greatly improved, making it much more efficient in terms of most processes. And if you want to avoid those always annoying bots messages that are added to chats, you have to know that this utility allows you to block them so that their comments never reach you.
Always concerning Direct Connect, you are also going to find that this new service has a search section that not only allows us to customize much more the content with which we want to give, to shorten the results, but it is also more efficient when showing us all kinds of files that could be related to what we are looking for.
About the interface of the program, you will see that it is straightforward to understand how it works, as it groups most of the interesting options on the left side of the screen, and that way we can first select which is the particular section we want to enter, and then move in the direction we prefer.
When we open the program and run some downloads, it begins to occupy the entire computer screen, leaving the lower part of its interface to see the progress of the different processes and the upper part to access the different menus. This makes that in a single window, we have access to absolutely all the required information in these cases.
And if its visual aspect does not convince you too much, you have to know that from Appearance, Styles, you can select some of the themes that come predefined with this program to give it a touch much more similar to what you're looking for.
In our user experience, we have found DC++ to be a stable and simple program when sharing all kinds of interesting content, with an internal division by hubs or rooms that is easy to intuit in almost every way. We have not witnessed frozen screens or forced closures, so you can be sure that if you come from Direct Connect, you will find here a luxury ally for your downloads.
