A better client download please
« on: November 29, 2011, 11:13:55 pm »
Are you going to make another way to download the game besides through torrent? This way either doesn't work for me or its so slow I wouldn't be able to play until at least next year.  :o

I still think that torrent isn't a very good program to use for downloading a game. Hope its fast enough for me to play CB right from the get go.

Don't think there is anything wrong with torrent as a program for downloading. They just have to sort out whatever problem they are having and actually provide a seed with a good bandwidth.

Edit.... At any normal occasion torrent is good, but with the recent past history that Mythos has... A simple straight forward download button and direct download would be safest.

The CBT is due to start at some point very soon (only 7 hours gmt till the 1st here in the UK) and we cannot even download the client to get ready. Not looking good, but that seems to be the standard taken with Mythos recently.

Please don't mess this up.

Nostalgia... Isn't what it used to be.
Bring back the "proper" Mythos FSS style... fast, fun and enjoyable

Did they saw what time it will be released?

Will it be a midnight release UK time? During the afternoon?

If worst comes to worst, I'll be glad to re-upload to MediaFire for those that are having problems with torrents.

I guess its fine for me now. I am at 83% so trying to download form anything else at this point would just be slower.

Alright, if I have time, I will upload it just in case anybody else has problems.

Torrenting is a horrible idea. Pony up and get some bandwidth mythos. 10kbs down is just not acceptable.

Edit: swapped from Vuse to Bittorrent and DL is up to over 1mb/sec.

I think for the most part Torrents are an awesome way to download a client. The only draw back being the first few people who start downloading and are leeching off a small number of people.
