    Steam has updated again.

    Fileplanet subscribers...Watch fileplanet aswell. I bet you will be able to download straight from there if you want to. Just a hunch.

    They said it'd only be released over Steam, and then whoever downloaded it could do whatever they wanted with it as far as hosting after that.

    Why download it through Fileplanet.. downloads suck from them, even through their membership servers.. speeds on steam are excess of 500 kb/s where as i never get over 150 from FP.

    500 kb/s = 62.5 KB/s

    see the difference? Good

    uh, not unless you have more download capacity than a T3 son. 500 kBytes * 8bits/byte = 4000 kBits/s. A T1 maxes out at 1.5 Mbits/s. Highly unlikely. If people could download at 4000 kbits/s, steam would only have enough bandwidth for 400 users, lol.

    Actually I have a recorded 3.9Mbits so he's probably not lying. It's called Optimum Online cable modem. :)
