I'm sure many of you have heard from me in the past. I have a 56k connection on a shared line, so I get little more than an hour on the net. So how big is it?

Are we going to change from when to how big now? Seriously, what difference does it make? You'll have to d/l it no matter how big it is. Just start it when you go to bed, and wake up to patch bliss../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

yeah I would also like to know that, as we have just moved out to the boondocks and can only get a 28k connection!!(Oh I miss my DSL.) So if its as big as the IL2 ones ill be there all year downloading it!
Will it be available on disc?

Dont panic you can get programs that reconnect you if the line drops out ,so you dont have to start from scratch

Buggered if I can remember what it's called but?

Well, I got a new puter with a new modem, so the connection doesnt drop out, I'm just saying, when I tried dowloading that 75mb file for the original IL2, it gave me an estimated time of 12 HOURS. And of coure, on dial up, another hour can be added to that easily.

I can get satellite here, but it is VERY expensive. $75 a month, and that is the ONLY highspeed internet around here, besides Adelphia, who my mom does not trust.

Yeah we are thinking of satelite but as preddy says it is costly and we dont even know if it will work here there are too many trees! There is a wireless tower in the next town but they couldnt get a signal to us. They offered to put a 60 foot tower in our garden to get over the trees! We quickly said no as it was $2000 and butt ugly to boot.

Read my post. It has a 3 sec lag. Crap for gaming. I would have got it while I waited 4 years for cable, but it just won't work for gaming.

It would be good for d/l stuff, and surfing. Which is what most people do. For gaming it's death. The game would look worse than what you have now, by a long shot.

But you can still play online as long as you keep it to small number of planes.

As for the patch size, don't you guys know anyone with high speed that can grab it for you? If not, there's a program called GetRight Download manager that might help.

I havnt been on hyperlobby since we moved out here, I wouldnt try to join a game with this connection speed. Plus we have to pay for the connection call, so every hour im on its like a money clock ticking away next to me /i/smilies/16x16_robot-very-happy.gif It would be nice just for downloading stuff again and been able to surf without wating minutes for a page to open.

I can only download around 50Kb/sec. and as for online gaming: lllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaaggggggggggggggggyyyyyyyyyy y.

Can't wait till we get DSL around here.

I have to take a leak. One patch for fm adjustments and game fixes. Second will be on a cd of planes. Not sure if it going to be for sale or not. But most likely cds not free

LOL, somehow I wound up with a 2.3-2.8 Cable Connection. Guess I just live in a good spot but it sure is nice! I've even seen it up to 3.2 a couple of times.

If the patch is mirrored at 3DGamers (all the IL2 patches were) they'll burn it on CD and post it to you for a small fee. As the charge seems to be per CD, not per file, you can get them to fill it up with other stuff they host at little or no extra cost.

I must take a leak. Marks for FM adjustments and play shiftingnesses. In second place you are on a CD of the surfaces. Not surely if it not to be going for sales or, but most probable cds do not give.

Another download resume program is

gozilla

if your connection is broken you can pick up where you left off.

Gozilla is good, but IMHO, GetRight seems to work better. They're both free, and the file is a smallish download, so it's just your preference. Absolutely recommend either of them for anyone not on DSL or faster
