Thread: Download size

  1. #1

    Download size

    As it would seem there is only the option to download the client rather than receive a disc, anyone able to give a rough estimate on the download size and method (torrent)?

    Thanks

    It was mentioned earlier that the size would be around the 3GB mark, no mention of the method.

    You will download a patcher from the site. From there everything else will be downloaded.

    Are there any plans to provide a patcher via a torrent to make things go faster? And if not now, in the future when Prelude begins and such?

    I'm poking Jooky about that now, just waiting for an answer. Seeing what he says.

    Hope we are not forced to download the client through a torrent...

    Nightmares of downloading entire client (5 gigs each) for every small patch released from Mortal Online... :unsure:

    The patcher is a small exe only a few meg in size that will download all the content needed. The question is where the content will be coming from, our server or somewhere else.

    Well yeah, obviously the patcher itself will be small, but the game will be downloaded via the patcher. Personally, I like the way other games do it via a torrent patcher, because most of the time it makes the content download faster, since others are sharing their files. It just makes it easier, and generally an easier load on the server.

    Hopefully thats what the plans are, if not, it could be a rather hefty download, if the textures in the game are large, etc.

    That is just crazy talk. Torrents take forever to download, let me down load it directly off the server.

    It will be a nightmare to download it via torrent when the files are realeased, You know being no one has it to share factor Unless they set aside some good bandwith for each user , then it could work
