Installing very SLOWLY!

Post by triggyx » Thu Jul 19, 2007 7:35 pm

i have just downloaded the base 0.95 (33mg one) and double click it to extract it but it is taking so long to unload 33mg of files.why?

it said it would be about 20 mins when it started so i just left it. but come back after 20 mins and its saying 1 hour+ now

and yes the files are downloading (each file downloaded about 4% a second)

did everyon have this prblem or just me?

53% done now and been extracting for 2:20 mins says theres 2 hours left. this is rediculous.

does any 1 have the files already extracted can pls put them in a simple zip file and not a self extract one. i really wanna play this mod.

please don't double(triple!) post, use the edit function. compression/decompression speed is dependant on your ram and cpu power, but 4 hours does sound ridiculus, you might have to let it extract overnight

Download winUha and unpack with it. (tested - it takes less time than normal self extracting)

It takes longer than a zip file because the compression used is very strong. On my system -- 3ghz Athlon X2, 2gb ram -- it only takes 30 seconds to extract. For a slower system it will obviously take longer, I never imagined it could take so long for another user.

it took me 369.9 seconds *shrug*

that was with a 2.4 ghz processor and 448 megs of ram (512 stick that didn't quite make it to 512...tad upset about it since i can't play mmo's that need 512 megs of ram when i have a 512 stick T_T)

4 hours though...geeze, thats one hell of an install time, glad mine isn't taking that long.
