We're all avid fans of this excellent game, so I'll get to the point.
I've been downloading BG:EE on and off for three days, using the BD client. I'm in university halls of residence in the UK - the internet connection here is clocked at between 85 and 100 Mbs, with an Upload of 7 to 10Mbs. On steam I get around 20Mbs. On Desura, the same. On Beamdog, I've not had above 500 BPS. Half a freaking KB(!!!!)
I've seen links for Torrent files, and port forwarding. Those would be great - But I do not have access to the ports for the Uni router (and getting them to unblock a port for entire societies before has been unsuccessful), whilst all known Torrent sites are blocked by the uni Firewall, and any people found using Torrents are banned from the intranet.
So, because I can't utilise a jury-rigged work-around, am I doomed to spending the next EIGHTEEN DAYS waiting to play Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition?
Someone, nay, Anyone - have some compassion, and please sort this stuff out.
