I know I've seen a thread title that had asked 'what is the best download manager' before. But I had never really needed one, till now.


I have had my hours switched around a bunch and now have some vacation time. And I have decided to download some UT2004 mods/mutators.


As of now I have the Remote Strike 7.0 mutator, and the Carball game modes. They are pretty awsome. But I saw some others from that Make something contest, and they are in the 100 mbs.

So that is where you the swampies come in.

I'd like a free manager that allows me to resume the download after exiting it. (ie. I download for 2 hours and get 30% I turnit off, come back the next day and resume it from the 30% even if the server I am downloading from doesn't allow it.)

I've tried looking for the mods on KaZaA, but no success :(.

Any help here would be hot. ;)



Oh and also give me your 2 cents on which mods you enjoy for UT2004.

Thanky.

Mozilla Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/) comes with a decent download manager :)

Not really, Firefox wouldn't let me resume at all.

3 more words, I have... :rolleyes: It only lets you resume downloads that are 10mbs or less. Other than that you have to pay. Which is evil.

Might I be so bold as to ask for a link? :D


EDIT: BTW, Mozilla bites the dust also. It is a good manager, just is screwy with the big downloads. Oh and it is a slow browser for 56k... guess I'll stick with IE :xp:

I used it back when I was on 56K. It's superb. :)

Get Right is a awsome, not only does it allow you to resume your downloads, but it somewhat boosts your download speed. Verry effective little peice of software.

Try to find a BitTorrent link, as well, Opera is quite good for resuming downloads - I still use it for dopwnloading, while I use FireFox for browsing..

I have been reading up on that one. Looks pretty sweet, thanks for the recomendation ;).


And also to Coupes, ET, Astro for recomending Getright. Grade A program :D




Now I just need some names of mutators for UT2004 to go with existing game modes.


... What? I like to get the most from my games :(
