    Shouldn't*

    I'm guessing with the lack of edit function, this thread (like most other GM threads) wasn't designed to be commented on.

    It doesn't matter if you're on Dialup or 100MB/sec, a 5 kilobyte file is still downloaded in a split second, and the connection open/connection close still take about the same amount of time.

    The best way that SE could fix this is update the Seekers Edition Download so that the files contained within aren't 5+ years old, so the user doesn't need to download 5 years worth of game updates and anybody looking to return could download the newest Seekers Edition from the website and it would actually be faster to just reinstall altogether.

    That, and now that we have ONLY the PC version.. another thing they could do is looking into releasing .zip files that contain all of the changed files that users could download, and it would dump the files directly into a POL folder, run POL then POL just needs to take those files and put them where they belong for an update that only takes 30-90 seconds.
    I mean they could do this but they have like 3 people on their crew or something!

    Can we please get a linen coin purse campaign? Maybe not directly 2 drops but a nice increase on a second drop? Really discouraging when you get all the way at the end of Salavage II and get a low ball lowend 50 pcs of alexandrite. Thanks.

    Slow updates is an extremely common issue with FFXI. Please remove your head from the hole it's in.

    Slow doesn't equal 10 hours. Yes it will be slow no matter what. But you aren't doing yourself any favors by making it even slower.

    Between reformats and new computers over the last 4-5 years I've done 4 completely fresh downloads of the game into install and updates and none including across multiple computers including laptops have taken a over 5 hours start to finish. This has been with both terrible Comcast and way outdated modems which hurt and even once on slow as heck AT&T dsl ewww.
