Unable to download it. It is taking so long that I'm just not bothering anymore with all of this

I agree. Yet again the slowest downloads, it's worse than dial up. 40 minutes and we're at 16%. I have said this more than once recently. Please Mods, don't 'pop' in to suggest it is my PC or connection, it isn't. Maybe it is just the load on your servers as everybody downloads the game at the same time. The problem is your bandwidth (I would suggest) But I also can't be bothered any more. I may try again later, maybe.

How very odd! Just downloaded Weird Tales (all 900mb+) in 10 minutes. This one has been going for 30 minutes and only at 57%... I hope its worth it

Yes same thing here with my demo it only took that long, but wait till you download and install the full version, it's taking forever and a Sunday. And I have Century Link 40 megs. And the dang thing still isn't done. My laptop beat my desktop and my desktop has 3 times as much power. Go figure

Poor you!! That is shockingly slow, noted your comment on their bandwidth - you'd think BF would have that sorted for peak times....

ETA - am losing the will to live...

It's worth to wait - it's enchanting HOPA (and I mean HOPA divided with justice between HOG and Adventure), with hilarious graphics, bells and whistles, from ERS...

Hi Shadow...it's our turn to be happy...

...A little bird whispered to me, that the "in the end" CE (the one coming in Sunday) is most Adventure (not so light), with 5 HOS during the whole game...but very lovely game too...

Thanks Rebecca Lily, for the heads up on In the End on Sunday. Now that I know that there are hardly any HOG scenes, I will not bother to download it, hate adventure games

My demo d/l took a little over 2 mins.

I was concerned about the slow d/ls, so timed my full game d/l, which took 9 mins. 19 secs to complete!

This is a few minutes slower than usual for me, so I checked and discovered I had left something open and running in the background that I had forgotten about!
I am still getting used to W7!

Add another to the list of ridiculously slow downloads; being able to monitor the speed of my mobile broadband connection, I noticed something odd. The game starts out downloading at the usual speed; it will never be as quick as broadband which connects through a phone line but I don't have that option so my downloads are slow by comparison. I usually get between 6000 to 11000kbps; this demo started out at around 8000kbps, got to 50% and then slowed down to under 500kbps It has stayed at that level and has only reached 57% downloaded. I'm in the UK and it's 10am.

Oh wow it's got to 60% now

ETA: Finally finished the demo download; 10 minutes short of 2 hours with an average speed of 621kbps. This is approximately 14 times slower than my usual average speed I also updated an anti-virus programme after finishing this demo download; it's speed was 9500 kbps. So it would appear it's not my ISP that's slow.

You don't connect point-to-point (and that's one reason why download speeds vary so much). Assuming 25 hops, it only takes one or two machines to be switched off over the Christmas period for the network to slow down.
