I've been trying to DL the client all day (as many of us have) and can't seem to get any higher speeds than 5-50 kbps.....even though It's a DSL connection, with speakeasy speed test showing a DL rate of 500 kbps.
Fileplanet is a no go, averaging 35 kbps, and often dropping to 0 too many times.
The official download is a no go for me too, usually not jumping over 10 kbps.
Currently trying the torrent, and it started out at 25 kbps, since dropping to .5 kbps, which is sad since the upload rate has been steady at about 25 kbps.
If anyone has any ideas/suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.
FYI, I live in rural S Texas, in case that makes a diff.
what i did was download the setup.exe from the .torrent and install it that way, now im getting 575 to 600kbps from cryptic's servers through the patcher
Ok, but if all you DL'd was the "setup.exe" file, how did you get it to install to get it patched without the other files, mine got DL'd first, and when i ran it, it started to install, then hung up at the file bin2.hogg
