Errors with JAVJunkies

    First off, not sure if I'm allowed to ask questions about a different torrent site. If this isn't ok, please delete this thread.

    To get JAV releases that are not posted on the torrent section of this site, I also grab torrents from JAVJunkies. Up until yesterday this worked fine, but all the torrents I got today give an error Unable to load. Invalid torrent file!

    Looking at the files they seem to be ok at first glance, anybody else have the same issue or know of a solution?

    Found the problem, but not what's causing it. All torrents had an illegal character at the start. If I open the torrent file with notepad and delete the first char, the file works fine.
    No idea why it does that, I checked and it is now also doing it with older torrents that worked fine the day before, if I download them from the site again. I can work around the problem now, but is still is somewhat annoying and a mystery what's causing it.

    Omg thanks for this thread, I noticed the issue happening this past weekend too. At first I thought it was my BT client so I reinstalled it, installed another client, then tried torrents from other sites, and realized it was just javjunkies. Hopefully they fix it soon, its definitely their own issue.

    I'm afraid my solution will make the torrents work but they seem to have no seeds. No idea what's going on.

    Its likely because very few people have realized this solution or the torrent tracker becomes corrupted when the character gets removed. Going to try to notify them of their issue.

    Looks like they solved the problem.
