How big is the Beta client ?
Any1 know, i have limited GB download
Mine says 29.9 gigs or 32,116,478,646 bytes.
My current TSW directory contains 34GB data. That's after 3 beta weekends including the upcoming one.
I remember it saying it was around 12gb when I DLed it the other night
edit: maybe it's 30+ and i just didn't notice.
its download is about avarage for mmos now days. so if you cant download about 50-100gb per month you might have a slight issue, as it unzipps and fully patches to about 30gb (that is using the client for this free beta weekend so it may increase in size as it goes along)
i believe the download it self is around 10mbs as its basicly an P2P downloader i think. it then opens and downloads/installs the client and then patches.
so my advice to you if you plan to download it with your limited bandwith, to plan for about 40-50gb download total, and hope for the best.
its fairly quick to download/install/patch so its not a huge issue but if you are cropped netwise you might have issues

35 gb here atm
I am downloading it right now and the patcher is saying 12.4 GB.
Don't know if anything else is downloaded after this completes.
you download ~ 13gb, but after the instalation the folder reaches 28gb
full beta though
21.4 gb is compressed. It gets uncompressed during the process.
