    it starts to download but if you look at the bottom of the screeen you can see no kbps downloaded.
    eg. 0.000 kbps

    the beta has been taken offline in europe at the moment.

    the ***** konami servers cant handle the loads.

    once again, the US and far east are preferred to use.

    I used the p2p option and enabled Upnp on my router.
    It still took the best part of a day to download.

    can you elaborate on p2p




    You have two options of where to download the update from p2p peer to peer.
    or http: (dedicated server)

    When you choose p2p you will be downloading from and uploading the update from other people's PS3's.

    I had to enable uPnP on my router to allow the PS3 to configure the required ports.

    OK GOOGLE PORT FORWARDING AND THE MODEL OF YOUR ROUTER

    make sure encryption is turned on in utorrent and lower the speed of your seeds. increase global connections and restart utorrent and the router. happy?

    I downloaded the update earlier, took a little while at about 120kbps. You will also need to have a Konami id which you can get ]HERE. Took me quite a few tries to register cos the site keeps saying its busy. It'll probably be worth trying to get a Konami id now, so at least you'll be ready to play once the beta is up and running. I used firefox to register, using the autoformer add on to re-enter information each time.

    As has been previously said, the beta has been suspended til the weekend. Statement from the MGS website:

    [CENTER]IMPORTANT NOTICE for all
    METAL GEAR ONLINE PREMIERE BETA players


    We would like to thank all players for their keen interest in taking part in the beta test.
    However, we regret to inform you that due to extraordinary levels of traffic from all around the globe, we have been unable to run the service to the level we expected.
    As a temporary measure, we will be suspending the European public beta test and restart it once we stabilize our server.
    We would like to apologize for all inconveniences as well as confusion caused.

    We would like to add that due to the above reasons, we will be making the following changes to the schedule:
    1) Suspend beta test: As of 25/04/2008 08:00(CEST)
    2) Planned for 04/25/2008 24:00(PDT). While the start is planned for the weekend, it may change due to unforseen circumstances.
    3) Beta Test closure: This will now be on 11/05/2008 at 24:00(CEST) rather than 06/05/2008 at 24:00(CEST)[/CENTER]


    Good luck and I'll see you online at the weekend!! Hopefully!!! :whistling:

    Please don't guess your just confusing things.

    I used the p2p option when downloading. Tried the dedicated server but only got to 3% and then stopped.

    if iand68 just said it wont be available till the weekend but he himself got a copy of it what is to stop someone uploading it? and how is it confusing things? what are you stora going to do in the meantime? are you going to code the patch yourself?

    there is no harm in looking on the web for the patch. be it on a torrent site, rapidshare whatever.

    I politely asked you not to confuse this thread by guessing and giving out wrong information.

    You seem to know of a way of patching this game by downloading the update off the web. Please enlighten us all on how to do this.



    PS if your still miffed about me reporting your spam then PM me but don't drag this post OT.
