I got home from school just now to find the fantastic news about the patch! I'm getting it off 3dGamer's Bitorrent link as I type this. I just wish it would go faster. Increased roll rate on the P-38? Better .50's? KI 84 killable? LOADS OF NEW AIRCRAFT?! My prayers have been answered. Thanks Oleg, I knew you wouldn't let us down!

I got mine in 4 mins from the Australian HTTP link provided by 3D Gamer. But then I am on cable and am in Australia. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I was comfortably cruising at 40k/sec from the 3d gamers California Mirror...which isn't bad seeing as I'm in South Africa! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Got it from the California link on 3DGamers (I'm in NL europe) - it took me 3 minutes http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif that was right after it went online http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif my first three attempts didn't come up with any patch at all - talk about timing http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I first went to the indiana site, thinking it may be quicker because of proximity, but it said 2 hours. I cancelled and downloaded from California in about 6 minutes.

I guess server traffic was at fault.

You might wanna try FlashGet. It download from several sources at once, so you get a higher overall speed.
I downloaded last night at ~95 KB/s, which is my max speed.

Bit-torrent is a wonderful thing. I had a steady 50k/sec, about as maxed out as my ADSL connection can get, this morning before work.

Looking forward to trying it out later. Only had time to take the Spit IX for a quick work-out this morning, and even that made me late.

Congratulations. I had a steady 2kps for 11 hours. I had to go to work so it's still not installed. Knowing my luck, it disconnected with about 5 minutes to go. I live in a major US technology corridor, 60 miles from Washington, D.C. and the best I can do is 56k dial-up unless I want to pay $60/month for cable modem. Welcome to the future!

Use the beta bittorrent client and max your upload. Trust me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It swamped my cable modem. It was pulling the patch so fast that google took 60 seconds to load.

Breeze - if you use a download accelerator like flashget or DAP (both free from www.download.com (http://www.download.com) I think - at least DAP is) you can start and stop the download whenever you want and resume later http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif even on a 56k line a download accelerator makes sense.

You could also use a bittorrent client for IE to download the bittorrent one (which is far superior to normal download if many are downloading)... Original bittorrent is at http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/ http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Thanks. I'll give those a try. As predicted, I went home at lunch to check on the downloac and the internet had disconnected. When I resumed the download started over from the beginning. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

Ouch Breeze... I've been there all to often. My disconnects have lessened since I bought a nice hardware modem. The old winmodem I got rid of would drop me every two or three hours, guaranteed.

The darn patch is like 102MB or something, I'm on dialup too (not even a broadband option in my area). I haven't even started to download yet, arg. Maybe later, on the weekend. Maybe.
