I put the cd in and started installing. Then it began to download a patch. This patch was roughly 40-60mb and it was downloading at 4kb/sec. I rebooted and tried again. Same speed. I checked my firewall/router and made sure it wasn't being blocked. Still 4kb/sec. I waited hours for it to finish and it finally did.
I made my cool Necromancer chick and then hit enter and now i'm trying to enter Ascalon City. But no.. I need to download a patch for that city as well. This ones much bigger and its going at 4kb/sec again. I minimized and started playing C&C 3 and it locked up my pc so I had to start the download all over again. I'm on high end DSL and this is insanely stupid..
I want to enjoy this game but i'm about to give it away because I don't have the patience to download at dial up speeds. Does anyone know of ANY website that has ALL available game patches on filefront or some kind of server that isn't on the moon giving me terrible speed?
/end frustrating rant. >.<
