It seems that you're using an outdated browser. Some things may not work as they should (or don't work at all).
We suggest you upgrade newer and better browser like: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera

predcon: I know what it's like to have a crappy connection (I've upgraded in the past few months), so I'd still want to provide as much information as I can. What's the deadline for this test?

Destro: We will be concluding the test on Monday or Tuesday most likely (TBD)

predcon: Additionally, I was able to run multiple tests from the same browser on the same computer, within minutes of each other, even though it says 'try again in a few hours'. Is 'a few hours' a suggested time frame, or was I not supposed to be able to run another test thirty seconds after the last.

Destro: While we're looking into getting as many as possible "unique tests" (unique per ISP / city / country), retrying the test from the same computer few times within minutes or hours isn't any deal breaker for us - quite frankly, this way we will be able to determine how your download speeds per different server locations depend on the time of the day / how stable it is on the retires vs the original results.
Having a Mobile Broadband Device should provide an interesting set of results, then. Depending on traffic and the time of day, my 'IP Address' will be one of three places.
Another free one: [gone]

hedwards: You mean that flash is technically the most evil thing to ever show up on the web?

Venom: Sounds about right ;)
Close to it, only thing worse IMO is Java and it's derivatives as far as issues go. When there's a real alternative I'll be happier, provided it's not worse... Still I can't complain SOR is the only RoA game I ever managed to get hold of out here, and now I have a working copy again.

I should point out I'm on an Optus 3G connection (in theory HSPA but it varies a lot including randomly going back to HSDPA and crud), so my speeds can range upto 3.6Mbps on a really good night, but drop to a mere 112Kbps in the same time period, on the same day so results off mine are really haphazard. Still it's the only uncapped option I could get that wouldn't cost me my first born, and I'm rather attached to both my boys. So hope the data helps but it's admittedly very random.

Damn it, I was planning to do this and forgot about it (cursed invisible sticky threads). Well, good thing I have the RoA3 retail version from some gold games collection and finished it already...

There should be a few RoA3 codes floating around in the forum, if you can't find any (and still want the game), send me a PM and I'll send you my code.
Always glad to help out. You guys offer a great service.

Thanks, but I do not really need it - as I said, I have the retail version somewhere and have played (and finished) the game. I was mainly interested in a digital backup copy, so there are most certainly people who will benefit more from the gift.
