Re: downloading

The installer .exe I currently have from a week or so back is about 30MB and after install it may download several MBs of program and pattern file updates.
How long this will take to download on a 56K connection I have no idea as I last used such a connection 7 years ago!

Re: downloading

If you use flashget to download it, not only can you pause/resume the download, it will show you the estimated time until it finishes the download.

(Note I just tested the link and for the first time in FGs history it opened their home page in chinese - be sure to click the american flag up the top if this happens to you)
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
