Yeah, I have to admit, that kind of sucks. I mean, I'm not as enthusiastic about this demo as others so I don't mind waiting, but still, to get 1/3 my normal speed because they opened this file up to the general public without a strong enough pipe is kind of lame. Meh, oh well.

EDIT: Though funny enough, I just started downloading a UT2K4 mod for the LAN party I'm having tomorrow and that is coming in at 280K. Weird that...

maddog, i've been connected to the ftp (largedownloads.ea.com) for the last 10 minutes and don't see anything even resembling the BF2 demo. What are you snagging?

Irresponsible for them to have it available if still being uploaded.

I just nabbed 113MB of the demo from Download.com. Full file they had. Annoying. Like christmas without batteries.

At 744 now. Still 2 minutes. The file is only 150MB, though. It said it was 500+. What gives?

The file is 546.76MB.

Started Cnet, finally. Began at 1.06MB/s. Said it would take about 2 minutes.

At 744 now. Still 2 minutes. The file is only 150MB, though. It said it was 500+. What gives?

God damnit, why couldn't they put this demo ALL over the place? Instead of just gamespot hogging it, which means it'll take years before others will have it.

GIVE ME MY DAMN DEMO NOW!

MachineMk2: Damn! download.com is awesome. I guess the staff is still uploading the file. Everyone use download.com when it starts working.

Ugh, 1.25 hours left (134 MB done; 95 KB/sec).
