Then right click on ConcurrentDownloads and click Modify then click on decimal and you will notice the number where it says Value Data has changed well you have to change it again so click on the numbers there and delete them and write in 256 (you can put a higher number but then iMesh becomes highly unstable) then all you have to do is click on Hexadecimal.

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > SOFTWARE > IMESH > CLIENT

Then on the right side of the screen you will see LimitBitrate and right click on it and click on Modify and then you will see under Value Data the number 0 leave it as that but if you donít want to share High BitRate music change it to a 1 (Sharing High BitRate Music can slow down you uploads dramatically) and press OK

The next following tweaks require you to navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > IMESH > CLIENT

Hide The Start Up Splash Screen
On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to HIDESPLASH right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see a 1 (this is when you want the Splash screen on) to turn the Splash screen off change the value to a 0. And press OK

6. Change the WhatsUpUrl to Elite X

On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to WhatsUpUrl right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see a link to iMeshís main page.

7. Allow uploads, downloads and search results from the KaZaA Network (requires Kazaa to be installed on our computer)

Ok this requires a lot of works so I have broken it down into steps please follow them exactly

Step 1. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > KAZAA > CONNECTIONINFO

Step 2. On the right hand side of the screen you will see KazaaNet right click on it and click on Modify.

Step 3. I know this is something you have never delt with before but donít worry you will see and whole list of different values DO NOT EDIT ANYTHING all you have to do if copy all of it (highlight it all right click then click on copy) I know it doesnít copy the first four lines but donít worry they will add themselves latter then press OK

Step 4. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > IMESH > CONNECTIONINFO

Step 5. On the right hand screen right click anywhere and click on New then Binary Value this will make a new Binary Value name this KazaaNet2 and press Enter

Step 6. Right click on your new Binary Value and click on Modify

Step 7. Paste everything into your new value you will notice the first 4 lines have added themselves.

Step 8. Scroll down right to the bottom and if at the bottom the last lines first four numbers ainít 0960 you have done something wrong and try the process again but if it is press OK

8. Make iMesh start in the Taskbar

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > IMESH > CLIENT On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to StartInTray right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see a 0 (This is when you donít want it to start in the Taskbar) to make iMesh start in the Taskbar change the value to a 0. And press OK

Make the archive button go to your new download location
In iMesh there is an Archive button which takes you to your download location. But for the ones that donít use that location donít use that button till now now you can tweak it to take it to your very own location to do it do the following.

On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to DownloadsLocation right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see the location of the default downloads location (This is where iMesh by defaults puts all your downloads) to make the Archive button go to your downloads location just put in the location of your downloads and press OK

10. Change the Chat URL to our forums page

As we all know that when you enter the iMesh chat it slows down everything cause you have to download everything everyone says but if it was a forum you wouldnít have to so if you wish to get rid of the chat page and change it to a forum we recommend ours so all you have to do is the following

On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to ChatURL right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see the link to iMeshís chat page well all you have to do is change it to the following link http://elitex.hyperboards.com and press OK

11. Change the Maximum Allowed Downloads at one time

On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to MAXDOWNLOADSNO right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see the number 3 change that number to 64. And press OK

Change the max results shown per page
On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to MAXSEARCHRESULTSPERPAGE right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see the number 5 change that number to 64. And press OK

Change the Maximum Allowed Uploads at one time
On the right hand side of the screen scroll down the page to you come to MAXUPLOADSNO right click on it and click on Modify and under the Value Data you will see the number 5 change that number to 64. And press OK

 Well thatís it for this version I hope you enjoy using it cause we aimed to make everything work cause we noticed in our previous versions we got some of the stuff wrong and we noticed not many people knew what they where doing so they wouldnít use it so I hope it is now easier and more efficient to use. Elite X would like to thank you for downloading this file and hope you share it with your family and friends and for also keeping the P2P lifestyle alive.
