Wow... I had no line on my server. It's downloading! See you all later when I have it finished.

There's no line if you go to fileplanet right now.

They have two dedicated servers, and it's not exclusive.

I will confirm this is true. I'm downloading as I write.

A direct link to the page: Deus Ex: Invisible War Demo (http://www.fileplanet.com/download.aspx?f=133479).

Well, not completely direct -- you have to click on a link to move off the ad page which opens.

I declare this thread the place to put your opinions and impressions of the demo. Please use spoiler tags where appropriate, lest I will find your home address and bash your computer with my sledgehammer, whom I call "The Crushinator." Thank you

Also, I will be with the rest of the fans chatting with Harvey Smith and the crew on Gamespy Arcade. For those of you who hate Gamespy and have denounced their game-finding/chatroom-searching program, now might be the time to amend your policies. www.gamespyarcade.com

My GSA name is Omega, btw.

I declare that at times like this, even a 1mb connection is not quick enough!

Sweet, i didnt expect it until next week.:)

Unfortunately i'm stuck in work for another 4 hours.:(

Could someone who tries the demo please post some details and what you thought of it.

Ahhh, a glorious day indeed. My computer wouldn't even come close to running the thing, but I really want to hear DX veteran's opinions on the demo.

USE THE SPOILER TAG THINGS

What I really want to know about is the gameplay, not specific plot points... and the boltcaster looks kinda crappy in one vid I saw, so if you manage to find that thing in the demo, please post your opinion of it.

*insert headbanger smiley from IS boards here*


EDIT: So much for Xbox'ers getting the demo 1 month before everyone else like I thought would happen what with the OXM issues coming out 1 month before the date printed on them.. I didn't even get my December issue yet, and the demo is supposed to be on the January issue.. looks like I'll get it after the release (Which won't matter since I'm getting IW even if it's:

-THE WORST GAME EVER CREATED-)

1 hour to wait! Why didn't I upgrade to 1meg!

Hope everyone who gets it first enjoys it anyway:)

Psychotext
21st Nov 2003, 18:11
I was going 110, but now it's down to 85 (Which is why I thought I might as well come and post).

Edit -
50% complete at 79k
60% complete at 72k
70% complete at 66k
80% complete at 62k
90% complete at 57k (last edit, just pray it's not corrupt now!)

Since this thread will be cluttered with tales of joy and woe related to downloading, I've started another thread for comments on the demo. As Five.Pointe.O says, try to limit details which might spoil the experience, use spoiler tags where appropriate ... but everyone must accept that there will invariably be spoilers in the thread (at least until Random or I can clean up the offending posts).

Note that I will ruthlessly delete anything in that thread which does not address the topic line. ;)

Downloading @ 105 to 160k/s - 1.5mb DSL > estimated time to DL @ around 30 minutes

That's also including the traffic for my VNC session to that machine :D

And now just as the file was finishing.. crash - corrupted - start downloading again :eek: :mad:

Dude,seriously, if you're at work and you have time to hang round these forums,there MUST be a way to get home ASAP
In the Burglary-excuse,tell them a certain Alex D. is snooping around on your premises(house:P) and that you have to get home using your speed aug.
Two options remain:
1 The boss will send ya home,believing you
2 You end up in a happy home with nice pills.

It's all good :p



Side note
Grr my ISP claims to have 2mbiet down...never seen it happen though...

i just finished the level the funniest thing for me was being able to throw people into the dumpster.

the spiderbomb is your best friend if you go into the sewers before you get into the apartments there are 3 greasels after you kill them there is a weapon mod and a spiderbomb

when you are looking around in i believe the second apartment it is the one with the laser sensors and the greasel in the cage there is a book on the right and it says something about jc and paul
