I was finally able to get both files, in their entirety, using Download Accelerator Plus in Normal mode (NOT accelerated or broadband optimized mode). Files unzipped and client installed fine.

I hope when I get home part 2 will be downloaded completely, but then I need to do part 1 again.

My guess is that as people finally complete their downloads, the bottleneck to the server will ease up a bit and it should get easier.

Why try? It will only result in failure (despair.com)

Why is it that I often find pessimism to be hysterical, but am generally optimistic?

First couple attempts yesterday and natta, once I finally got the download to start, they both completed by 1:30am this morning. The extract wizard locked up on me as well, however, I found if you just let it continue to do it's thing, it will eventually unlock and all files will be extracted.

I have seen the light =) and now I must shhhhhhhhh..... :laugh: Hope to see you all soon :D

Yes, if using the extract tool built into XP, just let it sit there. It looks like it's locked up and stuck, but it'll finish eventually :)

I'm in the process of copying the files off my laptop and onto my desktop machine, now that I'm home again. I hope I have as good of luck installing on my desktop as I did on my laptop!

I think that sending everyone the beta email at the same time, putting the download on only one mirror and then having the download so large is a work of pure genius!

Thank you Electronic Arts / Mythic!

It was the new stress-test. But they weren't testing the bandwith stress, they were testing the player's stress.

Thanks again Maddux!

Well, after a download on Thursday (1 hour + each) and trying to open with any unzipper we could find... re-downloaded again yesterday (35 minutes each) and chose OPEN rather than SAVE, could unzip. Got in fine... more will be revealed!
