As the title says, if you could seed the 4.7g file (forgot what it's called) that would be great. At the moment only 3 seeders Q_Q and only at 47%. Thanks for all who seed! :)

I could never fully understand Torrents and how exactly they work...

I'm sitting here watching this because I really don't have anything else better to do, and...

It says that I have 17 out of 330 connected Seeds, and 31 out of 6682 connected peers.

The speed is jumping _wildly_ between 10kb/sec and 150kb/sec (my max is about 150-160kb/sec).

I have the Download set to unlimited (obviously) and the upload set to... I forget, I think it is 10kb/sec. I found that uploading and downloading the same time can vastly affect performance too.

Anyways... why does the stupid thing keep hanging at 10-40kb/sec when I'm capable of doing 100+ more, if it would only connect to a few more of those _hundreds_ of seeds (or _thousands_ of peers)?

I can understand it in a case of there only being a seeder or two and only a couple peers, but there's hundreds, and thousands of them.. surely it could deliver more of a reliable speed.

Edit: I have ports forwarded/opened/etc, and uTorrent is giving me a green checkmark status, and nobody else at my household is currently using the internet and I'm not using the computer for anything else, other than browsing these forums and running a very light traffic telnet connection (16kb over 30min).

Try not limiting your upload. The only reason torrents work is because people seed more than they download. That's why public torrent sites suck, because everyone deletes the torrent after they get the file or limits upload. On private sites that have rules saying you have to have at least a 1.0 ratio, I average about 1.4 MB download.
I will wake up at six a.m. again.
and I will find my way to the front door
like a soldier crawling through the smoking carnage.
smoldering bodies at my feet,
I'd love to stick around, but I've got someone to meet.
and I will put my best foot forward.
and I'll thank god I made it out of there
on the day when my new friends come.

Posted new thread about it, so maybe others could see this, and other tips.

Anyways, I tried increasing it to 30k/sec... I can't give it much more than that, I believe my max is 70. I'll give it a few minutes to see what happens.

Edit: And I know the basics behind Torrents, and how they share files... its just I always limited UL speed, due to the low upload cap on my DSL... I figured that most of the peeps who seed, have huge cable connections, and such.

Here's something that was posted on our guild's forum and has proven to be quite useful. I highly suggest you all give this a shot, as it's worked wonders for us during the beta phase.

Many people have been asking for help with this, or have run into issues using the open beta downloader, so here are some instructions to get around it.

1. Open the FFXIV open Beta client, allow it to get to the step where it begins downloading files. This will ensure you have the torrents downloaded on your computer.

2. Open whatever application you use for downloading torrents. If you do not use one already, I would suggest uTorrent ( ). In Utorrent, File > add torrent. Point Utorrent to the following:
Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\metainfo

In the metainfo folder you will find files that have the same name as the patch your FFXIV was trying to download. Select these files, and hit open. (In most cases, this should be the file with the most recent creation/modified date)

3. Utorrent will now begin downloading these files to your computer. Based on your internet connection and security settings this should take less than 5 minutes. By default Utorrent downloads to the "downloads" folder in your documents folder. After it is complete there will be a folder called D96437e6, inside of this folder there will be a folder called patch, and inside the patch folder, there will be the actual patches

4.Copy these files to Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV Beta Version\downloads\ffxiv-beta\d96437e6\patch

5. Open FFXIV, it will try to patch again, realize it already has the information, and prompt you to log in.

6. Win.
