I've been using this on and off for the last couple of days and its been working at great speeds. I suggested a friend of mine use it also. He told me today that its giving him like 20kbs or something and he has only downloaded 3% in 24 hours.

My first reaction ofc was to tell him to stfu and die irl but afterward I thought I might see if anyone could suggest a solution. This is the first and likely only time I will ever use bittorrent so i have no idea.

Hes on a 1mb connection afaik.

Sounds like he may need to check which ports are being used on the torrent client, then free them up on his router

Same, and it crashed all the time... not that it mattered through, DLed while at Work Saturday, night from Saturday to Sunday, while working sunday and night from Sunday to Monday and it was done as I got up monday, but crashed all previous 3 times while it was left unattended, fortunately saving the progress each time.

Wish I had noticed this torrent first through, could have saved some rebooting trouble

This could take a long time...

Averaging around 0kb/s - 11kb/s

took a while to get started, but then I went through it at a fairly constant 400kb/s. from what I know of "official" downloads, that's pretty awesome :)

The download works fine, but the game itself crashes when I launch it.. get the logo with the copyrights and "LOADING" text and then the dreaded windows error sound. Hope it's "working as intended" since it's not live yet, hate it if it's a Vista thing...

What client are you using and what port is configured within the app and on the router?

also, we have a tech section where some very knowledgeable people hang out sometimes.

mind you, my download sat at around 20kb/s for hours before picking up speed. perhaps you just have to wait it out?

if you start via game instead of patcher. you get error saying game will shut down , and then error will pop out with something as authentication needed blabla... working as intended tbh

there is one trick with torrents.. upload.. make sure you finish/stop all of your torrents. then set upload limit to 15-20 ( seem to work best for me.. with less speed drops with more drops too ) and let it go.

for example ican get thing downloading 7.5mbs stable speed.. then i pop my upload on.. my download speed drops from anything like 150kbs-1.5mbs.. then i kill off upload and download goes back to speed.. simple

Make sure you have your ports open if you encounter difficulties !!

uTorrent checks if the right ports are open for you, i think. :drink:

I'm using Azureus and I'm pretty sure my ports are fine. However I have never really reached over 120kb/s on any torrent.

I have a 4mb line too, supplied by BT *sick*

Don't fully understand why I download so slow, same thing with utorrent, if not slower. Downloading WAR client from here atm with a steady..... wait for it... 14kb/s :p

Yeah, fun :D

----

Seems to speed up whilst i'm asleep as it had done 43% by the time i woke up this morning, was at 0.1 when i hit the sack.
