An interesting hidden-in-plain-sight trick to download faster on Steam.
I can't imagine this affects very many Steam users, I almost always get full speed downloads. Still, nice find.
yup no problem here lol http://imgur.com/8Wsxj
Yeah, the author's internet just sucks. I download at 2.2mbps average and maxed at 2.9mbps. Downloaded a lot of the Total War games so fast.
did you buy the Sega PC catalog for $100 or whatever the price was from Steam? it had all the total war games and DLC plus a bunch of other Sega games.
No, separately since i didnt want some of the games and it cost less somewhat. I also bought some indy games and two copies of Dead Rising 2 Off the Record and a bunch of strategy games. Steam ate my paycheck. I'm having problems with Shogun 2 but Empire seems to run just fine even though there's a lot of units and tons of things going on. Shogun 2 is struggling even though there's small army on screen.
.........Pause all your Pron torrents!
Pretty cool find. Don't think i'll bother myself though, i get a constant 1.2mb from steam minimum. My highest although i never witnessed it, according to steam was 2.9 on l4d2 :/
Nice find for those that can make use of it, but I'm with the others, my downloads are usually 1.5-3MB/sec. I downloaded Psychonauts as well, such a great game. I beat it a couple times on my Xbox and since I don't have it anymore, I couldn't pass up $2.49 for that game.
hmm might give it a try later on today,hope it works I just got shogun 2 and I don't wana wait for it to download,shit takes for ever.
Wont help if your internet download speed is capped to 200kbs :(
Good news for some, but not for me. I download at 5 to 8 MB/s on there. So good to have a 20mb connection :)
5-8mb/s on a 20mb connection I don't believe ya buddy. Max on a 10mb connection is aprox 1.2mb/s 20mb would be around 2-2.4mb what your talking about is only possible 40-60mb connection. To give you a idea of speeds 512kbps – 62.5KB/s 1MB – 125KB/s 2MB – 250KB/s 4MB – 500KB/s 5MB – 625KB/s 10MB – 1250KB/s 20MB – 2500KB/s Actually achieving these speeds is another matter but some download programs if prepared to pay for them will hit max data rate. I have a 10mb connection and hit a max of 1.2mb
Comcast 1st year promotional deal for $39.99 a month. Just complain like a boss on the second year to get the same price instead of $79.99.
That's odd, because i get download speeds like that most of the time. Looks like someone is WRONG :)
Just because you have a 10 or 20 Mb connection doesn't mean you're capped at those speeds for a lot of networks. Some Comcast areas (and other networks) often receive higher speeds than what their customers pay for. I'm on a 20 Mbit connection and I often see 3MB+.
Do we want to make a contest out of it? I can download with around 7-10 MB/s - depending on the load. I have a 100mbit connection :) :D
Yup unlike me he shares it with people lol and i thought a lot of people knows this
