Now Nexus is often terrible slow to download from and Big Brother Steam might not be what others want. Another alternative can be either 'usenet posts' or torrent links. Only, someone has to upload them first. I wonder who's kind to do so and how many people prefer any of the 4 options. Also I would like to have a poll what people prefer.

Sorry Robin, I'm not here to kick against Nexus,but at the moment I'm unable to download anything. Sometimes when I do have the option of my download manager and select it, it will download faster. If I don't have the option and it automatically starts downloading from my browser, but after a hour and 30 MB later I close my browser. I've read all the disabling bits.

True, but if you don't go for the "pay for" option..... you might wait an hour or so for "File is Syncing..." - That's ridiculous!

I've downloaded lots of files from Nexus, Grimrock files, Skyrim mods, etc, and never had a problem with my free account there, so at least in my experience they're fine.

That has been the case for me too...... Until today.... its seems to be, as I said, perpetually "File is Syncing..." (I just checked again)

No free account servers available while trying to Download "Twin Chalices".


Edit: Today; 12/03/2013 it appears Nexus is down.

Here's my opinion:

I played Grimrock when it first came out and returned now to check-out the mods (now playing Eye of the Dragon, a very good mod in my opinion, a few things I like less, still a very good mod) - and you know why I downloaded that mod first?

Because it can be downloaded from a normal site: no need to buy Grimrock via Steam (I bought it from GoG at release), no need to make an account on Nexus just to download a mod. I'm sure Nexus is a fine site for modders - but it's not a good site to host the mods, Nexus makes it too cumbersome for people that just want to play a mod.

I honestly believe modders would have had more players if they would host their mod at any of the dozens of file download sites on the Internet instead of only on Steam and Nexus.

let's hope that by the time LOG2 is released all these points are resolved :roll:

Modders need good guidance on WHERE and HOW they upload their MOD

in my experience the HOW is a closely guarded "secret" - you show me the step by step guide on HOW to upload your MOD, it doesn't exist
