Appox Time of Download?

Recommended Posts

dave1927p

Couple Questions: Does anyone know how long it will take to download The Lost and Damned? Does anyone know what would happen if the internet connection was lost midway through the download? I use my laptop as a modem for XBL and it seems to cut out every so often so i'm alittle nervous about downloading this when it comes out.

 

thanks.

The time it takes depends on your connection speed and for the first few hours of release Xbox Live servers will be hammered so you might get issues there too. Not sure what happens if connection is lost mid-way through as I haven't had that happen to me.

If I'm still awake at 2 a.m. local time I'll start the download and go to bed. Or I'll get up in the morning and start the download and go to work. Either way I got batter fish to fry.

What the f*ck are you talking about. 190 downloads. Do you have any idea how many people are going to be downloading this? Millions. You must be shoving some s*it up your nose that hasn't even been introduced to mankind yet. You=Fail cool.gif

 

Yeah, I'm probably going to

1. Set my alarm clock for 2:00 a.m.

2. wake up and start the download

3. get the f*ck in bed

4. wake the f*ck up and play until my 10 inch c*ck falls off

5. Reattach my 10 inch c*ck and play again.

This game will probably be downloaded by 200,000 people or more on the first day so I think R* would be prepared.

You mean Microsoft. Rockstar's job was done as soon as they gave Microsoft the master copy.

And dude i nearly bursted a vain after hearing that, so next time post usefull information that is accurate. angry.gif

Hopefully the same thing won't happen when Infinity ward released the map pack for COD4. I couldn't even download the map pack for like a day because the servers or whatever must have been so overloaded with people trying to download the map pack. I don't want to wait untill the 18th to play it, if I can't play it on the 17th I will be a very pissed off man mad.gif .

I'll be up at 1 AM my time to download the motherf*cker- I think it will take at least 4 hours to download with the amount of people that will be accessing it.

Didn't MS install new servers to cope with this last year? Either way I am sure some of us will experience trouble getting the content downloaded, its going to be very popular!

And you must know sarcasm.gif

 

Anyway, enough with the explict-talk. I also have the smae problem as you do. Although I have high speed internet connection, when someone calls, my connection is lost. So i'll try to download it when everyone is asleep.

 

You know, when you open Gta IV, there's no menu but you directly go to your game? What will the Dlc? Do we need the Gta disc? If so, will there be a menu or something?

 

And it says in some other threads with a reliable source that it will be 1600 points! That's like 1 and a 1/8 of a Microsoft point card.

Maybe you could use your own INSTEAD of a strap-on?

 

On-topic:

 

190? I echo the sentinments of everyone here... wtf?

 

If your connection cuts you SHOULD be able to continue the download by simply going back to the screen in XBL-Marketplace where you started the DL in the first place. You should see that the item is TICKED (checked if you're American) saying that you've already purchased it. You'll be able to start the download for free.

 

If for any reason it asks you to pay again (and you've definitely used the credits already) you'll need to ring the 'helpful' people at MS.

There's 10 million Xbox Live members, i'm pretty sure the Xbox Live servers will allow more than 25000 people to download at the same time.

The time it takes mainly depends on your connection, and if you're using your laptop as a wireless bridge it's going to take a lot longer than if your console was connected through an Ethernet cable.

Go to www.speedtest.net and choose to test your connection to one of their servers in the US that's somewhere near the XBL servers (I don't know the location, but if you're in the UK just choose somewhere in the mid-US). When you've done it, post here and let me know what the Download speed is. It won't b very accurate but is probably the best estimate we can get on the time.Off top of my head, I'd say downloading for two hours, maybe more over a wireless bridged connection from the US.
