If its gonna be as big as I think its gonna be I hope they will allow download managers. Cos my poor old 64k ISDN connection needs a lot of time to dl big files and my ISP has a 2 hour cutoff which means big files have to be downloaded in chunks.

Anyone in the know care to comment?

Regards,

WB.

Hm, I remeber BuzzU saying that the beta of the patch had around 48 or 49MB, but you should ask him about it. I don't expect that the final release patch will be much bigger.

I`m on 128K ISDN and I had completely no problem d/l 110MB of IL patches.Get Download Accelerator and don`t worry.


PS.If you don`t want to get in a big traffic,be ther in the first hours after patch release.They say they will be there when it appears,but the early traffic is very comfortable.

I'm sure that withh my 3 Mb/700kb Bell Sympatico DSL will take longer to install it than to download it.

Haha when its downloading at 4/kbs you wont say that. Traffic will be heavy thats for sure. Patch size I would imagine will be around 40 mb.

All squads should decide beforehand WHO dloads it (the one with most bandwidth I guess), once.. then he shares it to the rest of the crowd.

That, or a bittorrent.

I have 1.5m DSL /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif . The beta patch (no DCG fixes or new planes) is about 35mb total. However the release version has a redone campaign so it will be bigger.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.

I'm hoping that those who download it in the early hours will upload it to some webspace and post the location here...

I can imagine about 100 mirror sites or more! lol...

Ahem...holy crap!

What are you guys goin' on about?!

It looks to me like you guys suddenly feel kinda optimistic about this patch thing. I mean, sweet jesus, are we talking about an upcoming patch release here?

For real?
I thought this patch was just a big joke to keep us gamers in check - in fact I still don't believe it's gonna come unless I have it right under my nose.

This is funny.

Patches in the past on a T1 line have come in at 4-5 kbs, so some of you probably shouldn't be so confident.

As long as Ubi puts up some mirrors it shouldn't be bad. Of course that would require planning ahead which may be a problem for them.

I installed my ancient version of Gozilla a few weeks back. I usually get around 3k to 5k per second over my dialup. If I'm lucky I can get all over one night, I guess... I'll set my alarm to wake me every hour to make sure there hasn't been a disconnect.

For you dialup guys (like me) don't be distressed. Think of it as a game... How much can you get in before you get disconnected? My record so far is 197Mb in one whack... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

if you host it for download (gentle) be sure a lot of people get it from there !

Will mean like Kami in IL-2 you will get a nice bill from your Provider for that Traffic !
