    Is anyone else experiencing miserably agonizing (slow) downloads from the steam game client?

    Go to options and change the download location, see if that helps.

    Or is it a game in a sale? Steam usually craps out in sale times.

    I've been downloading Half-Life 2 ALL DAY (since the morning) and I've only reached 31%!



    I did, I live in the UAE and set it to middle east but it made no difference.

    lol, it's because too many people are downloading shit from the Steam servers where you are.
    Just change it to some random place, and it may be batter [​IMG]

    Well, of course he isn't.
    He said "steam client".

    Change your download location to a city closer to you.

    I have never experience that SLOW internet download. [​IMG]
    I finished dl'ing Half Life 2 in less than an hour. Uhm, try tweaking your download settings in the Steam client.
