or does the download go real slow on Torrent? my speed averages about 5-10kbps max, sometimes, it briefly jumps to 20-30+kbps, buti've been downloading all yesterday afternoon and all saturday, but it is only gotten to 19% :( It's not my connection, cause when i download other stuff, it downloads at max connection.
Mo torrent sucks and so does the way they released thiss mod. The most disorganised fasion i have ever seen any mod released in.
you got that right pal
I used Azureus to download the torrent and it olnly took about 2.5 hours to download. I feel that they released the mod in the best possible way -- most people had the files ready to go when the password was released.
It took me 8 hours to download with Azureus, but its better having hundreds of people with it ready before release than having hundreds choking 1 ftp site to hell and back.
Stop the whinging! no-one made you use Bittorrent, it was 1 option to download earlier and unlock at release than wait till release and spend 24 hours getting it after queing in an ftp.
I used file planet no line up at all and it took me 4 hours.
I wait 8 damn hours and finally dl fh only to receive a meesage telling me to dl it again. Complete bs i also talk to several other people who dled corrupt files. Why isnr the mod hosted on ftp sites wtf is the deal here. I have seen lots of mods released that were more anticipated then this (various dc, eod .1) and never ever had this much crap involved. heres a suggestion when you release a mod that ridiculuosly as large as this one, get like 20 hosts.
I think they did a good job with releasing the mod (with the exception of the official site being down). Bittorrent isn't for everyone - I gave up on my bittorrent download, but some people got a really good speed, and it gives people with bad connections a chance to get a headstart before release. The best way to download is to have a subscription to a place like Fileplanet. It seems like a lot of $, but when you factor in all the hassles, it was very worth it for this download.
Finally i found a site where i can get my maximum speed, i will have by the end of the day, but it sucks that i downloaded on bittorrent for two days and only got 300mb out of that, and now i have to start all over :( It's just ridiculous... I agree that they should have had much more mirrors. I would rather wait to the saturday release and then be able to use ALL my bandwith on that...
