Now that Pulsar hasn’t seen any maintenance or development work for almost a year, you might be interested in replacing it with another addon.

Quasar which is a fork of Pulsar the successor of XBMCtorrent which was built on the technology of Popcorn Time, has the same functionality and style only it sees much more maintenance.

To install Quasar, in case you already have Pulsar installed, you’ll first need to completely delete Pulsar and its providers. Otherwise, the two might conflict with each other.

By “completely delete” I mean: besides uninstalling the addon through Kodi, also delete its script / plugin directory inside the data folder (see this guide for instructions how to get there).
