To O.Maddox or UBI or who ever is responsible...
Hearing about all the goodies that will be included in 3.04 one can guess it's gonna' be a BIG MF http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif. So it would be really nice if you could split it in two+(depending on the size) files for the 56k people(like me). Corrupted 200MB download is not trivial thing for 56k users...

Yup. I'm in..(56k toohttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif). Maybe two versions: for the slow users (splitted in two), and one large for the fast connection equipped users.

But isn't really matter.. I'm gonna d/l it even if it takes me a couple of days http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif(it will actually, I bet on that one if size is going to be over 300Mb).

Nelosha ideja, jedan od susjeda mi je na ADSL-u.. jos samo da provjerim tarifu, da vidim koliko cu mu iskesirat.. al' mislim da ce bit jeftinije nego na dial-up http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

BTW Brain32, Getright is the best d/l manager, there's absolutely no chance for you to lose your partial d/l-ed file. I have once even booted (by mistake) my computer (that silly button below the POWER button on box http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) and I still had the file. Uncorrupted. GetRight rulez http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I got mine from "BUG" magazine cd.. but you can also d/l it from net, I think.

Yeah I'm one of the 56k peaple who use getright as a manager, and what we desperately need for these extra large downloads are more servers/links that support resuming. Nothing worse than being halfway throug a big D/L and have the line fallout on a non resuming server. UBI seems to have both supporting resuming and non-resuming and I still haven't been able to get all of 3.03 yet because of the lack of resuming links.

Please

The bigger the better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Though I do appreciate the difficulty for those on 56K. Its not uncommon for broadband users in the same area to send a CD of the patch to fellow enthusiasts who ask nicely.

The original posters suggestion of providing a large update in several, more easily downloaded, parts is a good one - and easily applicable to the patch format used by 1C (self extracting archive).

Salute

I was using FlashGet, but for some reason I switched to Getright. FlashGet is also very good d/l prog.

About patch size.. I was able to endure these 20-60Mb sized ones, but 300+Mb's http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif. Thanx God, I have d/l-ed previos ones, so I'm eagerly waiting for 3.04..

On the other hand, once when we *do* d/l it and install, we should be IMO satisfied, becuse that was the largest one in the history of this game. And probably with most new objects, news etc..

What I'm really hoping for is few things: flyable Ki100, AI Fokker D.XXI, flyable G4M (big maybe on flyable B5N), some of the older announced aircrafts, flyable CW-21 Demon (neat name http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif), flyable J2M3, maybe Do335, and the rest from the dev.update page like B6N, J1N Gekko, Devastator.

We should see some of these birds in our patch (the more the better http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif).


He-he.. nije ni cudo sto nas je toliko ovdje, jer kako kaze ona stara:

As with most big files, I'm hoping for a BitTorrent link.

Most efficient way of getting large downloads and totally resumable.

To be fair, there's been a BitTorrent link for all recent patches up on 3DGamers without too much delay.

To quote Oleg :
"The result of test please send before next monday when we will evalute it for the inclusion in small patch 3.04 "

Notice the last 4 words of the quote.
