FIX YOUR SLOW DOWNLOAD SPEED

If you have issues downloading the game, normally in internet is very fast. so there was no reason for me to be downloading. If this sounds like you, keep reading.

Then I ran across a fix > a simple windows option that can be changed to allow battle.net a more free channel to send and receive data.

I went from above mentioned speeds to 2-3mb/s and had the game downloaded in about 20-30 minutes.

But before we get to that, let’s check some of these conditionals… (Found from browsing the forums for solutions.)

•Make sure you have disabled Hamachi by going to Device Manager and disabling Virtual Drives, or similar programs. (Might even have to uninstall)

•If you are downloading during a busy time of day, (3PM, 6PM,
-9PM,) a time when many people in your neighborhood will be
-using the internet, it’s possible the slow download is
-attributed to oversold ISP service in your area, try leaving
-it on at night when no one is using netflix nextdoor.

•Check to make sure you don’t have another game downloading
-through another game service, or your
-sister/brother/mom/dad/wife/husband isn’t using netflix at
-the same time.

•Try restarting your computer. This should flush your DNS and
-restart all Drivers to have your system running at optimal
-conditions.

The secret boost your Steam download

Here’s how to make the wait time a little less painful.

Steam defines itself as “the ultimate entertainment platform.” Its software, available for PC, Mac, and mobile devices, allows people to “play, connect, [and] create.” Its gaming library has more than 2,000 titles and it has approximately 40 million users. If you’re one of those 40 million, you know what a pain it can be to wait for a game to update or for a new one to download. it’s not the speediest process.

Two of the settings here can help increase your download speed. First, make sure the drop-down labeled “Approximate speed of your Internet connection” is properly set to, well, the approximate speed of your Internet connection.

Second, play around with the Download region drop-down settings. Your best bet is going to be the closest location to you, but factors like the internet connection between you and that location or volume of traffic to that server may tip the scale in the favor of a server further away.

The guide for Maximize upload and download speed

how much your Internet service provider lets you upload in a day, the speed of your computer, and other factors.

The time it takes to upload or download a large amount of data from OneDrive depends on your Internet connection speed, how close you are geographically to our servers.

Here are some tips for maximizing the transfer speed:

  • Use a wired instead of a wireless connection.
  • Avoid running other apps on your computer when you’re uploading or downloading a large amount of data.
  • Avoid using your Internet connection for other activities while you’re transferring a large amount of data. It might help to upload or download at night, when the connection is getting less use from other people in your area.
  • Before you begin transferring a large amount of data, make sure your computer isn’t set to go to sleep. If it goes to sleep, all uploading and downloading will stop.

To test your connection speed, search the web for “bandwidth test.” After you know your connection speed, search the web for “upload time calculator” or “download time calculator” to find out how long you can expect it to take to upload or download a specific amount of data.

Do you know how to check the computer can run a PC game

If you have a laptop with weak graphics hardware or an older PC, it’s important to check whether your computer can support a game before you spend your hard earned cash. so just stay here to know and check your computer.

Gamers don’t have to upgrade their hardware as often as they used to. Even a gaming PC built years ago should be able to handle the newest games just fine. Laptops not build for gaming and older PCs are a different matter.

Beware Intel Graphics

First, one big warning: If your computer uses onboard Intel graphics instead of dedicated NVIDIA or AMD graphics hardware, you’ll likely experience issues running newer, graphically demanding games.

Most laptops include Intel on-board graphics, which is cheaper and doesn’t use as much power. However, even the latest Intel graphics hardware is much slower than NVIDIA or AMD graphics. If you only have Intel graphics, you may not even be able to play the newest games on the lowest graphics settings.

Intel’s onboard graphics performance has improved with Intel’s new Haswell graphics, but it hasn’t improved nearly enough. All but the most extremely expensive Haswell chips offer only moderate improvements over the previous generation.

Check Your PC’s Specifications Manually

We’ll cover a more automatic method later on, but first we’ll look at the manual method. You’ll need to know the hardware in your computer — primarily its CPU speed, amount of RAM, and graphics card details. You can find this information in a variety of different ways, including looking up your laptop’s specifications online.

However, it would be easiest to use a system information tool for this. We recommend Speccy, made by the same company that makes the excellent CCleaner.

Here are the main three things you need to care about:

  • The CPU’s speed, in GHz. Click the CPU header in Speccy and you’ll be able to see the number of cores your CPU has, too.
  • The amount of RAM your computer has, in GB.
  • The model of your computer’s graphics card and the amount of RAM the graphics card has on-board. Also note whether you have NVIDIA or AMD graphics. If you see both Intel and NVIDIA or AMD, that’s fine — your computer has both and switches between the two to save power.

Next, look up the system requirements for the game you want to run. You’ll generally find this information on the game’s website or on the site for whatever store is selling it. It’s at the bottom of each game’s page on the Steam store, for example.

Compare the information shown in Speccy to the details below. Pay particular attention to the processor, memory, and video card requirements.

Once you can remember the basic hardware your computer contains, checking system requirements is as simple as glancing at them and comparing from memory.

Automatically Compare Your PC’s Specifications to a Game

Let’s be honest: this process is inconvenient. Computers should be able to do all of this for us.

To check system requirements automatically, use the Can You Run It? website. This website is endorsed by a variety of big companies, including AMD.

Before using this website, we recommend running the System Requirements Lab Detection desktop app. Install this app and it will scan your computer’s hardware before sending you back to the website, setting a special cookie that identifies your hardware. This way you won’t have to install any Java or any ActiveX applets.

After running the tool, just visit the website, select the game you want to run from the dropdown box, and click the Can You Run It button.

You’ll be informed how well the game will run on your current hardware. You can check as many games as you like in the future but if you clear your cookies, you’ll have to run the detection tool again.

But can it run Crysis? Well, that depends on your hardware with these tools, you’ll be able to figure out the answer!
