Anyone here got a slower connection than me?

Needless to say, I'll be downloading the vanilla version, and it will still take a few hours if everything goes alright.

It'll only take about 32 hours to get the strawberry version – come on give it a go :D

Fellow Gooners, we just need a DM to sit in front of the back four and win some tackles. To many small players at the mo, but it will come good. Plus dont forget Arsenal have gone to their biggest debt ever, 351m. We are a proper football club, run correctly. We havent got a rich "Sugar Daddy" to clear that for us, so we have to claw it back. The policy of getting youngers is the only way, although I think we will spend 10-15 mill in Jan.

Dont get carried away with trying to kepp up with the Chelsea,s and Manure's of this world. Give it 10 years when the debt is clear, we will be back to being about to spend some money, but we are doing it the right way.

In wenger we trust! Anyone saying he should go is either stupid, or very young. He turned our club from medium to big, whilst playing fantasic football. Before him, we were viewed as one of the worst teams to watch. We also have a fantasic new stadium, which we have to pay for.

(I still cant believe I left the Emirates at 4-2 on Wednesday, dam the tube troubles!!!)

Steam allows you to pre-download games before they out so that as soon as they are 'released' or 'unlocked' you can play them without waiting for it download

what happens when it has finished downloading from STEAM? Is it just an exe file that you double click on to install? Does it appear on your desktop?

Download speeds are great, averaging about 900kbps at the moment.

Miles Jacobson
01-11-2008, 22:23
Gameshadow isn't down as such, as many people are downloading from there already and are fine - but there is an issue with so many people hitting it, so not everyone is getting on.

I'm on MSN with Tony from there, and they are working on it now.

People are also having issues downloading the link to the torrent, as so many are hitting it. And to think we released 2 hours earlier than the advertised time on the press release to try and avoid this, and we still broke the interweb :)

For those using the Torrent to download the Demo I'd like to request that you leave your Torrent Software program open to assist others who are downloading, or want to download the software via this method :)

This is not a problem. I imagine the download link is being rather stupid and just dividing the MB by 1000 to get the GB. File is 1004 MB = 0.98 GB.

I never thought I would say this, but thank god for Swedes (or at least their extremely cheap high speed internet connections). Every time I connect to one of them I get very good download speeds on the torrent :)


Interesting that DHT is disabled on the torrent, any reason for that in particular?

I noticed that as well, and can't see a reason either.

State of play as it currently stands.

STEAM is coping more than fine.
Torrents are coping more than fine.

There is a problem with the Gameshadow webpage, but not the downloads themselves. We are working on a solution for this, which will be direct download links for the strawberry direct downloads so that you don't need to go to a webpage first, and this will mean that more people can get through from the news of the world (1 in 6 are getting through at the moment)

So, for now, please don't try and grab the strawberry direct gameshadow download, and stick to STEAM and torrent.

Miles if you are still there, you keep mentioning an Argentinian league in the demo, but on the footballmanager.net front page these are the leagues you mention:-

Quickstarts: England, Scotland, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Brazil, Australia, Indonesia

Do you mean Australia, not Argentina? I will be very happy if it is the A-League and not the Argentinian league is in the demo. If not I am sure we can all keep ourselves busy until the game is out in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to play the game. I have downloaded the torrent, but waiting for the seeders to come on-line. Not long to wait now. This release promises to be one of the biggest ever! I have been around since the beginning and none of the previous versions have generated as much hype as this one. I hope the game can live up to the hype? With the team SI have and the info so far, I am pretty confident it can.

Not very impressed with Steam, to be honest. I thought the whole point was they'd have tons of bandwidth and fast downloading. I'm sure that they promised SI the same thing, so it's not SI's fault. I have a lightning connection and it's downloading at like 100kb/s, which is pathetic for a hosted file.

If I buy the game digital download from them, I'd better be able to pre-download it as promised... ;)

EDIT: I should add that I'm using the U.S version of Steam. They are probably using a different server to the one in the UK.
