TCTorrent for Total Commander

TCTorrent — is content/lister/packer(file structure view only) plugin for working with .torrent files. This impementation have different approach to visualize torrent file content instead existing plugins. All parts are fully support Unicode.


The plugin has been tested on Total Commander since version 8.5. Currently being tested under Windows 10 (x64), but should work fully from at least Windows XP.


Just open wlx_wdx_tctorrent_xxx.zip in Total Commander, this will install the plugin automatically.


Please refer Total Commander documentation on how to configure columns. You can select:

  • Name
  • Files count
  • Total size
  • Block size
  • Block count
  • Tracker («Full» or «Host only»)
  • Created date
  • SHA hash
  • Program
  • Comment
  • Encoding
  • Private
  • Multifile
  • Publisher
  • Errors (contain the info about errors occured during parsing) * Skipped Count (count of unsupported torrent file fields)
  • Publisher URL

In Lister part you can use context menu to copy either data only or whole info with formatting. If data have a links, they will appear in the context menu. Also search is working.

Export can have an icons too, but for converting them you need to have GDI+ installed. If you have at least WinXP, you most likely have it. Also, icons in resulting HTML will be visible in the modern browsers only, IE6 is out this list, sorry.


  • Ctrl+A — select all
  • Ctrl+C — copy data (without headers)
  • Shift+Ctrl+C — copy all data (with headers)
  • Shift+Ctrl+Down — expand all folders
  • Shift+Ctrl+Up — collapse all folders
  • Ctrl+E — export HTML
  • Ctrl+D — open current torrent in associated (or custom) torrent client
  • Ctrl+O — options
  • Ctrl+Z — expand/collapse details section
  • Ctrl+G — run URL if it exists in the selected line


Explanation of some non self-telling options:

Styles → Extension groups — here you can define the groups of extensions. After you done that, your group will appear in the available styles list, and you can set it's own color.

Magnet → Template for magnet — here you can enter the text that will be shown in the viewer (link itself still will be full). In this text you can use following substitutes:

  • %HS — SHA1 hash
  • %HB — BASE32 hash
  • %N — name
  • %T — tracker
  • %S — size

Client → Custom torrent client — you can place here your own custom torrent client (for example portable one). In both fields you can use environment variables (for example %COMMANDER_PATH%). Paramaters field also accepts the following substitutes:

  • %P — full path of current torrent file
  • %F — parent folder of current torrent file
  • %L — list with files selected in viewer (ANSI)
  • %UL — list with files selected in viewer (UTF-16) * %V:PropName — inserts the value of torrent's property. Allowed property names (case-insensitive): Name, TotalSize, FileCount, BlockSize, BlockCount, FirstTracker, Created, Creator, Hash, Comment, Encoding, Webseed, Multifile, PrivateTorrent, Publisher, PublisherURL. For example: %V:TotalSize inserts total size of torrent's files.

Also added a support for some specific features for console torrent-client aria2 (help for commandline parameters):

  • %AI — list of indexes of files selected in viewer as " --bt-remove-unselected-file=true --select-file=<index>" (with leading space). If list is empty, parameter is replaced with an empty string, " --bt-remove-unselected-file=true --select-file=" is not in output.

Example: -q -c -Z --no-conf --bt-enable-lpd=true --console-log-level=error --seed-time=0 --summary-interval=0%AI --file-allocation=none --no-file-allocation-limit=20000M --always-resume=true --stream-piece-selector=geom -d "%F" "%P"

Ini-file only options

MarginLeft — left margin. Default is 3.

AdditionalInfoSeparator — string containing one ore more symbols for separator for additional data, by default «→».

For substitute one domain to other when clicking on link, create in the ini-file [Mirrors] section with pairs of values DomainName=MirrorName. For example:


In this case when clicking on link http://domain.com/topic123.html will be opened http://mirror.com/topic123.html
