gonna sit this out. something (or someone) doesn't want me to get the mod pak, I've tried twice and got nothing (1.5hrs ea.). don't feel like trying a third time.

I tried the regular way and did get anything either, that was on broadband. I tried using download accellerator and it flew down the line.

Cant really explain it... if one connects, so should the other. Course, windows downloader only tries once... Download Accellerator hammers at it till it gets a response then sucks it dry like a porn queen Supports resume too, something the standard windows "save" doesnt have a button for.

1st time I got to 75% and blam, nothing.
2nd try it got to the av scan and I suspect that ie timed out waiting for the scan or winzip(since it is set to move things to my dl folder) might try again at a later date but, not, I think today.

Yes, it was very fun. Note, the tank he is talking about is big, but has a small amount of mass...
O, by the way Matrix, my name is jujAga, not jujUga... common error...

my mistake....

As for the tank, its got low grav and bounces a lot, on the bz mod its intended for it handles lie a brick, mainly cos the maps are such high gravity to make it feel realistic. The tank was left as is so it bounces along with the rest of em lol....

For the next patch update to anarchy, ill be including probably the biggest and hardest tank youve ever seen in the game also one of the fastest and smallest.....

The server for chemicalforums is actually very robust. For the best results use firefox.

so now I know why it timed out waiting for the av scan. might I suggest that these large server paks be split up to say 600 files(more or less roughly) per archive.

Why not just scan it when its arrived rather than while its on the way. Even some MS stuff won't install if an AV is shaggin with the files timeout delay's during an install. Plus you will speed up your download 10fold by not scanning the source but scanning when its in at your end. Thats what i used to do when i was 56k.... so i fully appreciate what ur saying.

aye.. I wouldn't even try to download anything over 20MB with a 56K modem... it would take too many hours and scanning it at the same time??? wow, that's brave.
One of those investments I hate to pay but can't live without of (cable-dsl)...

Back then I had a download manager software. I'd leave the computer on at night downloading stuff and hope that it got it in the morning! :| ( ..but all auto-saving settings to off).. hybrid mode, screen saver, shut off hard drives...etc... :\

so I practice 'safe hex' .
it doesn't scan untill the dl is complete, but ie has to wait to complete the transfer till the scan is done(for the record this zip has 1227 files, of which there are at least 4 (bout 1.5mb)that could be eliminated)

Heh... I am crazy... yes I am... I use a modem, and yes, I do download like crazy, but with a gadget that I like to call getbot. It is a very nice program I found for anyone who has to pause downloads, and you can find it here at http://www.getbot.com . It is spyware free, and I've used it for 5 months now, so no problems here. It's a lifesaver... now, back to downloading... FUN!!!

not counting the master flag pak. the 'thumbs.db'(4 ea) & roundabout.3ds can be removed w/o affecting the mod pak.
