View Full Version : Poll: Downloaded GWX Yourself? High Speed or Dialup?

12-16-2006, 06:27 PM
I hope you folks don't mind a second poll on the GWX mod, but I am also curious to know the speed of the internet connection you used to download it. Note, if you get your copy on a disc from a friend, please do not vote in this poll, as this poll is meant only for those who downloaded it themselves.<form action="http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums" method="POST" name="VOTE">

Sounds like you might be a candidate for SH3 Multi. Or, if you are fortunate to have more than one gaming rig you can devote one to each mod. I've got one high end desktop which is my main gaming rig and one high end laptop. A few months ago I got a new Pentium D805 with one gig of RAM which is the family rig. That one should be OK as well for SH3, but I'm hoping to put in a dedicated graphics card in place of the onboard it uses for now, as well as good sound card, which I do have in my parts bin. But if I start taking over the family room PC for gaming, I'll have a domestic rebellion on my hands.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I thought of trying to combine this poll with my other one, but it would have been too complicated to cram source and download method into one poll.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

tuddley mate, you n fritz are gonna have to do a detailed report on the pros and cons of each - i've been interested in UBWA for a long time but being such a GW afficionado, i've stuck stoically by its side.

All in all mine took about an hour and a half on 2mb cable broadband, once I'd got a slot on a mirror.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I've got a cable connection, it took me about 40 minutes to d/l all the parts to GWX. I averaged about 285 kb/s. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I will probably be installing it on a seperate HD this afternoon.

I'm glad downloads are going much better than yesterday. It was quite a logjam yesterday.
