Can anyone who has already downloaded the patch upload it to a website for a direct download? p2p sucks, U torrent doesn't work for me and the updater sucks.

Thanks in advance :)

hum, i patched with SE patcher at around 300kb/sec.
it started at 300, then stopped for 5-10min, then 300ish again. Didnt take so long to patch.
Did you wait for a bit?
I dunno how that thing works anyways, am i uploading auto somehow after i finnish patching? cause the patcher just closes.

Yeah I was actually surprised to find that the S-E patcher was going at like 300k/s (in bursts, then going to 0 and back) but the torrent program was at 1.4MB/S. Sorry patcher program, you lose again ^.^

I tried the patcher, but after 5 minutes of nothing happening I went to utorrent. Guess I'm not the only one :p

good point, my guess is it goes some where.

Must admit this patcher i had issues during in beta, gave up with FF14 because of it.

Downloading file now with megaupload, be warned if it says unavailable try again every 10 mins.

I am downloading the file now.

Its crazy that I can pull 1.8 MB/sec with the utorrent client and only 0-20kb/sec on the official one. And now I am uploading a ton to help the swarm.

Surely I can't be the only person to download it all in less than an hour using the built in SE program? Or am I just really lucky?

I must be that lucky too, it ran great for me this morning. Including installation, registering codes, & the patching I was making my character within an hour/hour half after picking the game up. Don't know the explanation for it though...

Go look at the website for Apartment Ratings or the Better Buisiness Bureau or a local restruant that you enjoy. You will find that people rarely take the time to rate a good service, but will go out of their way to bash a service for even a minor fualt. Just saying you're not going to find too many people singing the praises of the downloader compared to those complaining. While the ratio may in fact be 80% happy you'll see more like a 90% unhappy rating on the net.

People have the right to complain.

Go to a restaurant and order food and get crap you have the right to throw it back in their face.

What if you brought a car and it didnt work. You have the right for a total refund. Will we get a refund because of these stupid download issues? I loved POL and the way it just worked.

This program was the reason i stopped with the beta. It just didnt work for me. Here I am trying to get it to work through backdoor channels. Its wrong!! This is something I HAVE PAID FOR. And its within my right to be grumpy about it.

Ok I downloaded it through megaupload, just finished, and am now at the updating screen, verifying it. Seems legit so far.

Ok at log-in screen now. I need to setup an account.

I don't understand how in this day and age and as a gamer no less people can't understand simple networking and then complain that it is the company's fault that they have no idea how their computer and internet they pay for works.

Actually your wrong, My job title is Network Manager.

I have no ports blocked, no firewall, i disabled access protection and buffer over runs and even the on access scanner just incase that caused the issue.

Also my service provider does not block ports or offer firewall protection for its customers. And considering this is not my 1st MMO or online game this is the 1st time ever I had struggled to get anything working which requires internet connection. This is why I am furious over this not working.

In today's day and age it should work and if the system has issues on 10% of its users then frankly they should re-do it. I am using XP because 7 is yet to be compatible with everything, I didnt upgrade to vista well dont even need to say why. Usually issues are caused with simple things which is why I never customise my home PC in any way or upgrade it every year just so it then works and stays working and has little trouble.

Yes, I had to do it this way and it works a treat. The program detects the file checks it and installs it. Just make sure you create your service account with FF14 next and away you go.
