    Discuss the demo and full game here. Those of you lucky enough to have a copy of the demo, why don't you say a little something about your experience witht the game performance.

    10 second wait for me (but i guess i must of got the link as it went live)... i meant the actual D/L is hammered... the first 20% went through nice and quick.. the further 40% was quite slow.

    Im still at 63% complete.And still around half an hour to get to grips with the demo.

    Any other download links? Fileshack sucks.. it will not let me log in, and it won't send any emails to my account (even though it says it sent one) to make a new account or to access my original account. WTF.

    you will get the confirmation email eventually, looks like their servers are getting totally hammered. but their whole interface is absolutely terrible, better waiting until tomorrow until some other sites get it. (sites that havent been coded by a bunch of monkeys).

    Yeah I hear ya on that-- LOL. My question is why they would release it to only a crappy site like fileshack in the first place? A torrent would work better. Oh well.

    $$$$, thats why.

    Just imagine how many people have got pissed off after 45 minutes in the queue and clicked "Mercury for $1". then gotten roped into a automated recharge fee without knowing it.

    theres gold in them thar hills.

    also for those who said shacknews has great speeds, its capped to 5mbit on the free downloads (and you will be lucky to get half that right now due to the demand for this game). nothing great about that in 2007. I frequently have hit 20mbit on gamershell for nothing.

    What are you all winging about??

    Email problems?? & Download problems?? (understandable if you're cought up in the cue)

    May of taken me 10 to 15 minutes longer than i expected from fileshack.And yes that is the free servers (i won't pay a penny for faster).

    I now have this demo installed.And am so pleased my pc runs it at a reasonable spec & frame rate..

    So far i am totally FuĀ£^ing gob smacked.This is going to be one hell of of a game and im pleased i have this pre-ordered.

    I aint got no wings baby !

    yep, thats what people are whinging about.

    ive been chatting with around 10 people on MSN tonight, 5 have been in a queue for 90 mins, 3 are getting 1mbit and 2 can't even get in queue. I think it would have been better if crysis has been released on even two sites for the public. so people had a bit of choice. But its all about the benjamin's.

    As you say, you got it quick, and thats great, most people haven't, hence the complaints.

    Doesn't bother me, ive had a build for a week or so but I can feel the pain !

    Z you may of rubbed it verbally... but who cares when i have the demo downloaded and fully installed..

    Sorry for those who do have to wait.. i assure you all who is eager to get hold of this demo will be impressed with the results.

    Mind you i did start d/l this demo before i posted the link (some cruel justice i suppose) :evil:

    Z :eek:

    A) Ive waited so long to get a taste of crysis

    B)Yes you have to give a teaser... (truthfully spoken) any FPS fanatic (like me) will hopefully be impressed.

    C) Thats why i don't win Driverheaven Compos either.( i could say they are fixed but that's pushing my luck further).Besides i was only talking about a minutes head start ... jeez on my back already.. :rofl:

    Besides it will be good to see if anyone has this demo and is able to upload some screen shots..As Print Screen is not working for me.
