Extremely slow download for FTX Global/Germany South

Post by stevefocus » Fri Jul 20, 2018 9:16 am

Is it normal for the download for FTX Global/Germany South compatibility update to be running at approx 300kb/s? That seems really slow to me download is using Germany#1 Server

Thanks for the help.

Hard question to answer since it is an ORBX issue. I wouldn't think it's normal, however, depending on how many people are downloading at once if the server is overloaded it very well could be.

Wow! The download is soooooo horribly slow. Not sure how it's an ORBX problem when it's a "color match" provided (presumably) by EDDN developer... not ORBX.

Hi guys, sorry for the inconvenience!
Normally the download is pretty fast for US based customers even though the server is based in Germany. I'm guessing that it's either due to temporary high demand or a routing problem across the ocean.
I will work on a solution - e.g. setting up a US based server.
Best regards,
Lars

FYI: With the latest version of the Manager (v2.0.3.6) we have added a fast US based server as promised :)
Best regards,
