It would be awesome if we could see the remaining time while downloading. Also it would be wonderful if we could see the download speed graph like Steam has.

The download speeds are given but are in hours and I mean hours. I have had my latest game taking above 24 hours leaving the computer alone until finished, as I found out if I tried to do anything else it needed starting the load again.

Found this page simply trying to find how to view the data... I know you can estimate it yourself with some quick sums but it's a little shocking that such a simple and useful feature has been left out not only on initial release, but over a year after the issue was first highlighted on official forums. Maybe it's harder to implement than I thought...?

How about using a multiple part download client similar to Internet Download Manager. Couple this with a user defined speed limiter so we don't end up with perturbed users on our local network? When you take up the entire 50Mb bandwidth for a couple of hours people tend to get perturbed.... They really don't seem to mind if I use around 25 to 30 Mb of bandwidth.

The GOG downloader gives the download speed, but the guess-etimated time of finishing would be a useful addition. As would info in the downloader of the size of the package.

Schmurfy, time estimations make sense, given you know the current download speed. <br /> <br /> Giving information of current download speed plus estimated time is more useful than just current download speed plus remaining amount to download. <br /> <br /> An example: <br /> If i know the current download speed is 320 kB/s and estimated remaining download time is 20 minutes, then i will know that it takes twice the time (40min) if the the download speed drops to roughly 160kB/s. <br /> <br /> If i just would know current download speed of 320kB/s and a remaining amount of 1.2GB to download, how would i easily know when the download would finish if the download speed would remain at the current rate or drop down by half... Now everybody would need to start calculating... 1.2GB divided by 320kB/s makes so-and-so-much seconds, which would be so-and-so much minutes and hours... ouch, my head is hurting... ;)

I don't find time estimation to be that useful especially when multiple applications are using your internet connection, any number provided will always be wrong in that case... <br /> What would be nice and is always correct is showing how much has been downloaded/how much left and what is the current speed. <br /> <br /> PS: As a good example of how useless an estimation can be just look at the file copy dialog of various windows implementation (and other OSes too): 2min left, 20min left, no wait it might take 1week, ... That's exactly the same issue, multiple applications are using the hard drive.

+1 for the current download speed, and perhaps a graph showing how this speed has changed over the download(s). However providing an ETD (that is anywhere near accurate) is probably more hassle than is worth at this moment in time. As SoanoS stated, sudden drops (or increases) throws all calculations out of the window.

Yeah I'd like to see a Down load speed and time remaining feature added, as of right now I have no idea how long a 24GB download will take and on other digital platforms I could see this and make up mind what to do while i wait. ;)

Well, would be nicve to see the progress in terms of numbers (XMB of YMB at Z KB/s) and download speed. Those always allow me to make a rough estimate of time remaining. <br /> <br /> Having a piece of software trying to guess the time remaining according to the last download speed indication is fairly useless as in some cases it can "count backwards" if the download stalls and the average speed drops. Making a guesstimate from the data remaining and current speed is more accurate.

As a bonus, the graph and estimates could be roughly accurate, unlike steam.

I would like both of these features as well. I would really like to see the download speed.
