I'm trying to download the latest update and it's downloading at 30kb/s, even using an download acelerator.. everything else is fast here, I have a 100mb/s line.

Hi Telle,

Sounds highly likely to be a problem with your local connectivity or something inbetween the server and your connection. There's really not much we can do.

I suggest waiting a week or two, and let us know if the problem persists and we can possibly look into it further. (Sorry I can't be of more help)

Now, I'm at my job, here we have 1gb/s line, and it keep downloading at 30kb/s. Every other downloads tested took the maximum possible, average 40mb/s real speed (I think it's because of the HD). The last time I downloaded one update here with success, it was very fast, like 1 or 2 seconds of downloading.

Did you setup maximum quotas for download speed?TELLES08082012-04-16 17:25:17

Hi, new user here.

I want to confirm that I have the same slow download speed issues as TELLES0808 is experiencing.

Downloading construct2 r84 took me 20 minutes at 20-30 K/sec yesterday.

Today I downloaded r86 and again it was painfully slow.
Just to check my own connection, I SSHed into my online webserver, got the file directly from scirra and then downloaded from my webserver to my PC at my full connection speed.

So as far as I can tell, the slow speed is related to scirra server and not my own connection.
Maybe you aren't allowing multiple http connections or something?WASD2012-04-16 17:11:19

@TELLES0808, @WASD - what countries are you in? I'm in the UK and I just checked now and could download at a megabyte a second or more. I think our server is in the US (@Tom?) so this suggests its not necessarily our server, but could be some routers/congestion between you and our server. Not much we can do about that.

I'm from Brazil, my friend is from Argentina and he is having the same issue, another one on Japan is downloading with good speed, but the Australian isn't.

If I use the download accelerator, or anything else to speed up the connection, the download keep the same speed with more connections, so, I believe something is restricting the speed, maybe a script from arcade, to maintain the site and the server throttling always low.

My main site is located on Texas, I have a slot there, and my route from there is very fast, like the route of my another sites located on Massachusetts.

But I stop here, because I'm not an expert in this issue and I can't help much more than this descriptions and tests (made by my friends).

We can host the files on mirror servers too? like dropbox (posted on topics, for example).

I'll forward this to our host, and let you all know what they say. Please don't mirror Construct 2 - we'd rather keep it on our site. We can look into other distribution options such as a torrent perhaps if there is enough interest.Tom2012-04-17 02:51:31

I am in Greece.

But note that I have an online server in the US and I download from it at full speed so it shouldn't be something on my side.

And as TELLES0808 said using a download accelerator does not increase the down speeds as if more connections could not be made to scirra server.

I think torrenting could be a great way to distribute new builds but I don't know how worried you are about pirating.
