[SOLUTION] Slow download speed


1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi,

Since I wasn't able to find an answer how to download BDO with a proper download speed, I'm here to share my solution. I was getting around 15 - 30kb / sec with my 100mb connection while the maximum should be somewhere above 10mb / sec. I also tried the alternate download link for BDO, but nothing changed.

Then I noticed that if I was running the BDO Launcher while downloading from the alternate link, the DL speeds became normal. Then the only problem was 2 simultaneous downloads, so naturally the download speed was split in half. After limiting the alternate download, I was able to download at full speed from the original BDO Loader.

If you have already tried everything else to fix download speed issues, here are the steps:

  1. Make sure you are able to limit download speeds. (Built-in feature or Netlimiter: Link)
  2. Start BDO Launcher the normal way and begin the download
  3. Open the alternate download link for BDO in another program. (I used Jdownloader: Link)
  4. Limit the speed of the alternate download, so the BDO Loader can have full rate. (Or the other way around)

This is a painful workaround, but it's better than downloading the game for a week. In the attached picture you'll see an overview what's actually going on on the screen.

My specs: Win7 - 64bit, 100/2 cable connection with Cisco EPC 3010 router.

Maybe with these details someone is able to come up with a better solution for this specific issue.

See ya!

EDIT: Apparently its enough to start the download twice from the alternate link, then you can limit the secondary download. You can use a program with a speed limit feature to avoid the hazzle with Netlimiter.

EDIT 2: This issue has been fixed on the server.
