It's going awfully slow... but that was to be expected :)

I'm on cable and it goes at a steady 11 k/sec. COME ON! 12%!

NO SUCH FILE EXISTS!!!!:( I think GetRight and any other download management programs doesn't work :(

I tried with Download Accelerator, and it gave me the same error. You'll have to use the good ol' standard download window :(

darthfergie
09-28-2001, 07:07 PM

IT'S WORKING!!!

Sherack Nhar
09-28-2001, 07:08 PM
Keep clicking the link. And disable GetRight.

Don't give up! If GetRight is disabled, it's probably because the server already reached its limit. Just keep trying!

EDIT: Great! Now the long wait begins, as we get more and more hyped up... 18%...

darthfergie
09-28-2001, 07:13 PM
Why couldn't they just zip this...It would be SOOOO much easier to download...
Man I've been doing this for a long time and it only just now hit the 2.0mb mark...ON CABLE!!!:eek:

Dagobahn Eagle
09-28-2001, 07:14 PM
Okay, cable guys, look what we have to cope with:


9:31:13 left (At 2.2k/a sec)


BTW, to those of you having trouble: It works with GetRight, just hit "Resume" every time it stops. Anyone checked Zone to determine whetever they've got a game room up yet?

Sherack Nhar

LEC are linking it directly to the Gamespot mirror. It's not on their FTP. I got the link from LEC's website to begin with.

Got, what an awful wait! 27%... it looks like I'm the fastest here: 11 k/sec. Who can beat that?

Sherack, you shouldn't have told everyone about the demo... since you posted it my speed was cut in half from 10k/s to 5k/s !

Hannibal
09-28-2001, 07:29 PM
They should have had mirror sites. They had to know this would happen. ->1.5k/sec

Ooh, ooh in only 11 hours and 52 minutes I'll be playing this!!!:mad:

GWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! 22.1 MB!!!! *goes crazy and jumps everywhere*

32%... when I'm done, maybe I'll upload it on my personal webspace while waiting for Cillo. A rudimentary mirror...

Which side are you going to take first? Rebels or Imperials?

Clefo

Then I'll see if It doesn't take too long to upload it on my webspace. I'm using netfirms - I have no ideas if it's going to be slow or not.

I've tried to find other mirrors, but to no avail - Bluesnews and voodooextreme just reported the demo, and fileplanet has no word on it.

37%... It's slowing down!

darthfergie
09-28-2001, 07:40 PM
I've only got 8.0mb so far...been slowing down a ton:(
now only 4.56k/s

Bad news. Netfirms only holds up to 25 mb. I'll have to look for another fast host.

Get flashget guys - especially you ppl on cable, splits up downloads into bits and gets em all at once.

Clefo
09-28-2001, 07:45 PM
Screw this I'm going to order a personal CD and have it delivered next day air... I'll beat most of you people :D
