Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

Anyone know if Diablo 3 works on Hughes Net? Since WoW takes about 9 gb to download, how do people download WoW through their Satellites? It takes me about 2, or more days to even download 1 gb during the free early morning hours.

Diablo 3 player right here... yes it is playable through HughesNet but it seems as you go further into the game it gets worse (lag issues) .. At times you will have hard times defeating bosses cause it keeps giving you clutchy movements.. When playing singleplayer all alone you will be downloading least 2kbs worth of bandwidth most of the way off and on.

There will be times where you will easily get disconnected when sitting too long so you have to constantly keep moving in the game however either way you will still get disconnected if your moving around or not due to the lack of HughesNet's unstable servers.. Goodluck to you and try to have fun.

I will give it a try, and see if I can find a hard copy somewhere. I'm sure there's lots of updates to go with it though. Maybe I should start a Diablo 3 Satellite Internet Guild, so we can all go lag together. lol

WoW should be fine, I played WoW up till cata. Between 2-7 you should beable to download 4-5 Gig's in one night, My brother and myself found using WoW's patcher to be rather slow and fail. Personaly i suggest you get a Resume program and Download the patches from Manual sites. That's by far the best way to patch on Satalite, Unless they changed all that in Cata.
