Filesizes: What are you willing to download?

Hi people and other beings...

We are currently programming a game
(Arcade-Shooter: vertical scrolling
fighter-simulation. kinda like
Apogee(tm)'s "Raptor"... only 3D and
with RPG-aspects)
It will take at least 2 - 3 years
until it's fully done.

The question is- seeing yourself in
2 - 3 years with whatever bandwidth
you'll have by then- How big would
the maximum filesize be that you'd
be willing to download?

56K modems are the shiznit. ;)
No actually they suck big time
Largest I've ever downloaded was 90MB.
In 3 Bit chunks.
Eg: 3x30=90
Took 3 Nights per bit.
9Days.

I WILL NOT be doing that again :(
Damned 56K.

If only DSL or cable was cheaper.
Then I wouldn't care how big the file was
Download everything in sight

But, alas. I can't. that sucks :(

I will kill all that are!!!!!! Until I get it, of course.

Good for you. Broadband is kinda necessary if you want to download shit worth hundreds of mb.

So true.

File Planet is getting terrible. At the moment they seem to be setting up a system that's totally as useless as possible unless you pay upto some crazy amount of money.
Two words.

FUCK YOU GAMESPY.

Actually.....No, thats three.
Close enough...........:)

Even Fuckplanet, I also mean FILEPLANET, can be slow for me.

I always use 3d downloads....
