when it will come, could you add a "bittorrent" link to download the next patch? Some popular open source tools (like Eclipse) already do it.
We could then use P2P in a legal way to the best it has to offer: The more we are to use it at the same time, the better it works, and busy servers are an old story...

Thank you very much,

Mistral

If everyone cooperates it should not be too bad.

If everyone agrees to NOT download it on the first day that it is available - then I should have no problem getting it then.

Thanks for all your cooperation in advance.

By the time this patch is released, every home will have fiber optics and the cost of bandwidth will be so cheap UBI will be able to host it on one server with no problems.

Waldo.pepper, I fully and deeply agree with you.
But, as you have noticed, I was the first to post about this problem, so well, you see... I hope you're convinced with me that it's legitimate to let me download first the patch at full band width... So once it's out, I give you the "trust mission" to keep the rest of the gang far away from the download button. Feel free to argue the way you wan't. But don't worry, once I've download it all, I send you a nice mail (if I've the time and don't forget), then you'll be able to do the same.

I sincerely Hope our business will work.
Good luck

It's an evil tool used to steal from the rich and give to the poor! Well, according to the MPAA and RIAA. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

The rest of the world (expecially Linux users) know it as a fast way of spreading large files around. The key is that every downloader is also a server, sharing the bits that they just downloaded. Unlike conventional downloading, the more downloaders there are, the faster it is for everyone (since there are more servers).

I've got the last couple of patches on BitTorrent (it really is the only way to fly for big downloads and I expect v4.00 to be a BIG download). I'm sure the mirror pages listed at UBI have referenced the torrent download from 3D Gamers in the past so I'm not too concerned.

Well, it's 1:20am Moscow time now. I am sure they get started early (real work etiquette I hear). So, I'm going to start checking the web site(s) for the patch release in about 5 hours. HEHEHE

I for one don`t understand why ppl get so excited about some patches.
Last few were really not much so maybe a big fix or flyable planes?Yeah right the whole new FM - who is naive enough to fall for this?

It takes over 100MB so why are ya knuckleheads panicking already?On my medievil 512K it will last 40min downloading,not long.I tell ya the best way to get a patch is to miss the release by four or five days.Things go nicely,no server overload.
Anyways the day the patch comes out you won`t be able to play it online becuz of ppl downloading and the chaos with server versions.
