Is this some huge update they are going to surpirse us all with, or have things just gotten this crappy? I played FFXI from NA release and never once saw an update this long. Can I hope this is the "miracle update" we all have been hoping for, and SE being SE decided to surprise us all, or will I yet be let down again on this game by SE as has been true in the past...and it will just be a 7 hour download to add 1" longer grass in Gridania?

its just for auto attack as far as i am aware of :( and i think its the same size patch as the last 2... it just annoys me that it takes so long for me and other ppl to download when some ppl manage to download it within minutes...

The actual 1.17c patch is under 1 MB at most, according to estimates. This is why:

All of the last ones here are all part of the same "Patch 4" since we haven't reset the timer to start again (as per the only 4 files I downloaded on fresh install)
D2010.12.21.0000 7.2mb
D2011.01.18.0000 9.5mb
D2011.02.01.0000 11mb
D2011.02.10.0000 11mb
D2011.03.01.0000 73mb
D2011.03.24.0000 103mb
D2011.03.30.0000 103mb
D2011.04.13.0000 325mb
D2011.04.21.0000 327mb
D2011.05.19.0000 328mb <--- 1.17b

If it keeps up like this, every dam patch will get bigger and bigger, taking longer to download and the patch system is horribly unorganized beyond what I thought it was before :(

I guess they want the patch sizes to be EPIC, but really, this last set of updates totaling 336mb should have been as follows:
D2010.12.21.0000 7.2mb
D2011.01.18.0000 2mb
D2011.02.01.0000 1.5mb
D2011.02.10.0000 1mb
D2011.03.01.0000 58mb
D2011.03.24.0000 30mb
D2011.03.30.0000 1mb
D2011.04.13.0000 122mb
D2011.04.21.0000 2mb
D2011.05.19.0000 1mb

much easier to download :(


As it turns out, 328MB is also the size of today's patch. So, that means there's roughly <1 MB of data different between 1.17b and 1.17c, you just get the pleasure of redownloading that and the last 9 patches before it as well.
