Too bad it was hyped so much, otherwise it wouldn't have been so popular and could be able to be downloaded much easier :/

When I try to download, it says greater than 12 hours remaining, and downloads at 13.3 KB/S.

And my internet is usually pretty decent. -_-

Download is taking forever. Must be too many people downloading at once, may have to try later since this is the only download that appears to be working. Takes 10 minutes for 10 MB

If you're having trouble downloading it from here, go to shacknews. Much less traffic.
And yes, it is an official download mirror.
I am currently downloading at 250-300 kb/s

The zip file for part one seems to be corrupt so it won't unzip. Download somewhere else.

I think I'll wait a few days untill the mass downloading stops.

Then I might actually be able to get it within a day.
