Download Cutoff Solution

Postby Cralis on Mon 20 Jul 2020 02:44

Some of our players have found that downloading the Ultimate CD or Legacy CD stops after a certain size. We have found two solutions for players that encounter that issue:

1. Use Firefox. Firefox has a "resume download" feature that if you restart the download after it stops, it will pickup where it left off.

2. One of our players found that http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/ works VERY well for these large downloads. Not only does it keep the download alive, but it apparently speeds up the download. In one player's case, from 400kb/sec to 4mb/sec.

3. Another player discovered that the downloads can also be completed using wget. The following link shows you how to get and use wget for windows and unix computers: https://phoenixnap.com/kb/wget-command-with-examples

If you have encountered this issue and found a different solution, please post it here for others to use.

Thank you!
