Man, downloading a demo in only a few hours...it must be heaven...
I seriously don't know how you can handle that. I remember back in the day when a large demo was 7 meg, lol.

I donno, I guess I'm just really patient. I even downloaded the Planetside trial on my 56k. Took a few weeks, but eventually all 1.2 gigabytes were mine. Oh, and don't go thinking I have a fast 56k or something like that, usually I get around 3k/s, 4k/s tops, if I'm lucky.

The word on the street is that the demo will be released at 12 PM PST on Wednesday.
(8 PM GMT for the peeps in old Europe)

Time to tweak the puter to the max for some fraggin'.

Heh, don't get your hopes up. If I were you, I wouldn't pay attention to any statements about the release date. Remember how long previous demo release dates have slipped? I seem to remember UT2k3's demo release date slipped a number of times....

Remember when 7kbs was a smokin' DL speed? Then THEN! you get the tursted "zip file does not contain any content. Please down load again"
I FRIKIN' LIVED FOR THAT! You wasted a week using getright to down load a 4 minute demo and then you realized Diakatana really DID suck. It wasn't just the llamas in the game lobby talking smack.

Hehe, yeah, i remember that. Frustrating times indeed.
But who knows, maybe they'll get it right this time.

Bah, just don't worry about it until it happens. No sense waiting with bated breath.

Well, it's second hour at Licking High School (Missouri). I guess when I get home I'll download the demo, with the software rendering mode I should be able to run it. I would also be nice if a prerelease version of UnrealED 4 is released the same way UnrealED 3 was.
