    shawry, 1 GB broadband...Sure...

    booga, what you should do is right click on the first winrar file in the folder you just download and then press "extract". Tell me what is extracted as i dont know what exactly is in the archive.

    Shawry,

    1) Please visit http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and pick the closest city to yours and then post the results of your max upload and download.

    2) Do you have a router? If so tell me which one.

    3) If you dont have a router, what Firewall do you use?

    Ah! Ok, thank you for the two answers. Now please visit http://dslreports.com speed tests and find the city closest to you, they have a much larger selection and please post.
    I will then continue to help you.

    Ok, quick lesson
    KB=KiloBYTES kb= Kilobits

    Ok,moving on :)

    Set your max upload speed under preferences to 12 KB/s.

    Under the listening port, selct some random number and then check this site if it is open http://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

    i dont use ZoneAlarm, but can you see a way to open ports or make exceptions for certain programs.

    If anything, make the exceptions in Windows XP Firewall and just turn off ZoneAlarm while you are downloading.

    Download torrents with A LOT of seeds.

    Booga,
    ask a friend with the game to make you a mini disc image or download one online. I cant tell you the site as it is prohibited in the forum. Google it.

    Shawry,

    Close ZoneAlarm and open windows firewall from the control panel. Go to exceptions and then Add Port and add the listening port from Bit Comet that you set earlier. Also choose a high port like 50000.

    Download Daemon Tools. Then when it is open, right click and set 1 Virtual Device, then go to Mount Image and mount the Mini Image. Enjoy!
