Didn't find anything about your final release. Would you be kind just to say? ;)

PS How do you expect any donations, if people who don't use bit torrent can even see your product?

The answer is pretty much everywhere, had you really looked for it, I suggest you look for "Open Source" in Wikipedia.

And regarding BitTorrent:

BitTorrent can be used by software developers who want to ease the bandwidth strain on their servers. If a developer offers a large file for download, the bandwidth limit of their server may be exceeded if a large number of people download the file. By offering the file via BitTorrent, they transfer much of the bandwidth burden to downloaders of the file. For example, the demo of the flight sim X-Plane is offered via BitTorrent, as well as the World of Warcraft ingame patches.

We are not making releases to convince people to donate money. That is not the purpose of the game.

Some people say that dreams are a portal to the subconscious. If that is so, I am a very disturbed person.

You can't download the unfinished version. You'll just have to wait.

Sure you can download an unfinished version! This is what the Progess releases are for. Try this one: http://www.projectxe...ase.653.torrent - you'll need a Bittorrent client like Azureus ( http://sourceforge.n...ojects/azureus/ )

---Edit---

By now the progress release 728 is out. Please have a look at http://docs.projectx...ess_Release_728 or download it directly from:
http://www.projectxe...ate.728.torrent

It would be nice if we could download it without aving to use Bittorent-type programs.
I know that ppl like bittorent because it share while you download but that's just the problem.

I am not allowed to share stuff because if I do my ISp will reduce my connection speed.
Why not just put it on an ftp or even in a normal zip-file that ppl can download instead of using bittorent?

Anyway ppl who use ISP pandora-telenet (belgium) are punished if they share (upload-limitation) so i don't want to use torrent files.
Any suggestion?

Azureus
BitLord
Shareaza

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Here's one suggestion, DON'T use BitLord. Basically, the programmers took the source code from BitComet, tacked on a lot of errors which crash your computer, ruin the look of the interface, and posted ads for it everywhere. If you must, use BitComet, although I for one think Azureus is better.
Justice will be dispensed by cannonade and cutlass, and all manner of remorseless pieces of metal.

Take one more step, and I swear, I will kill you so hard you will die to death.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I agree, that you might have aproblem here... But if you just want to download, then configure your Vittorrent client not to upload anything, or at least not to upload that much. That would avoid your problems. I'm sorry, that seems to be the only sollution I can tell you.

There are programs (like DUSuperController) that allow you to limit the upload from other programs... That way you can use Azureus,.. without uploading (too much, never put the limit to 0 or your program won't work...)


I hope this helped,

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Thanks you appreciate our work! :)
There are no new progress releases for the time beeing. This is for a simple reason: Previous progress releases have been mistaken for playable betas, which caused a lot of confusion. This is why we are waiting until the next Milestone before we release another PR. However, you are welcome to compile Xenocide from the SVN repository yourself. The programmers guide in the wiki explains how.
Please feel free to contact me through the forum PM if you have any questions left.

Best wishes
