Does anyone have a copy of the unofficial patch 1.3 (vtmbup13.zip)
available anywhere?

After an hour pissing around on fileplanet this morning, I still can't
download it from there.

TIA

Oh the link is not hard to find, the problem is that Fileplanet's idiot
coders wrote something that will only work if you're using Internet
Exploder. Can't they afford any decent developers?

It works fine with Mozilla FireFox 1.02.

It's not obvious, but you need to allow the pop-up window to come up,
and click on "continue to the public QUEUE". You DO NOT need to
install the activeX plugin. Just keep this secondary window open
until the download starts. It will periodically update to let you
know where in line you are.

Suggest you go do something else in the meantime, or do your downloads
at 2AM when the servers are less full.

"Fileplanet" and "decent" can only be used together in sentences
containing a negation.

Fun Fact of the Day: In exit polls at the election 2004 the percentage of American
voters citing moral and ethical values as their prime concern was 22 percent,
continuing a trend of *decreasing* perceived importance of morals: In the 2000
election 35 percent cited morals & ethical values as their prime concern, and in
1996 a whopping 40%, almost twice as many as in 2004.

Opera 7.54 for one. So I d/led it at work on IE instead - why would I want

Yeah, sure mate - even from Australia in the evening, ALL the queues were
40-50 mins+ & the Aus one actually took about an hour & a half all up to get
to it. Maybe there's a hidden Antarctica server you know about that the rest
of us don't...?

Holy grouchy guy, Batman!

I understand your frustration, but there's no need for the sarcasm and
rudeness. 40 minutes or so is pretty good on the free fileplanet
servers, especially when the files are particularly large and
extremely popular. That's why I suggested leaving it open and doing
something else, as it can be a fairly long wait.

While I haven't downloaded that particular file, I have downloaded
files from the free fileplanet servers. It's how I knew that the
download instructions were somewhat misleading for non-IE browsers. I
doubt you'd believe this either, but the last two files I grabbed from
there were an old patch (jagged alliance 2's 1.02 patch) and a newer
game demo (SW: Republic Commando). Downloading off the North American
East coast server on a Friday night at 2AM Eastern Standard Time and
at 2:30AM EST two weeks ago. The total queue at the time was 0 both
times and the downloads fired up within a few seconds. Perhaps I just
got lucky, but I would imagine the server load at that hour is
considerably lighter than during the daytime, or in the evenings.

You don't know about that one!!??

On that note: Does anyone actually pay for fileplanet?

LOL. Good choice. I had to download a couple of things that way. :-)

Try Mozillia...it seems to be a little more compatible with pages than
Opera and it tend to be able to deal with the funky "stuff" web
programmers are apt to do.

That was one of the more civilized responses re filthplanet you'll get
around here actually. You're new around here, ey?

Maybe this is a side effect of Opera identifying itself as IE, and the
site programmer therefor using IE specific routines that wouldn't work
with Opera.

Perhaps you should tell Opera to ID itself as something else and try
this again and see if this is indeed the problem.
