I can't download it!!!

It keeps timing out on trying to connect to 66.xxx.xxx.xxx !!! And I'm pretty sure this is my dodgy connection....

Is it a general FTP address or a unique download link that comes in your email?

Could someone please PM me the link to it?

Yes it is the full version. Rockstar games are nice like that, releasing free full versions of their games several years after they were originally released for sale. It'd be nice if some of the other companies would do something similar with their old games.

Well GTA1 was a unique download link that came in your email and apparently could only be used once, so I guess GTA2 will be much the same. You might want to wait a couple of weeks for the initial rush to die down then grab your copy.

The URL for the download changes, and only allows one download per URL, so if the URL has been used, then the file can't be downloaded via that URL again. I don't know how it works, but that's the idea behind it.

Would it be legal to mirror it?

Codex

doubt it, you could always just download it then upload it to like a russion server or sumtin?

Mirror it as much as you like George, because JSG have a copy of the GTA1 file. At least they did when I last looked, I haven't checked recently to see if it's still there.

Just don't cry if you get served with a legal notice from Rockstar.

well gta1 download was a big disappointment...

spent 3 nights downloading it (328 a la 56k) and it doesn't look like anythngs been done to make it better for faster computers...

I thort aat 300mb they would have upgraded the textures or something but meh, they arent getting payed anything for it... and the only thing i payed for it was my time...

I bought GTA1 for $10 or $20 five years ago. It is a nice game, but it would have been far better with a save feature - I don't often have enough time to complete a whole "level".

to save it you walk into a church!?!? lol.

or at least you do in GTA2

I shouldn't really download anything, don't want to blow my 10GB.

Wohoo:



Reason for torrent link removal:
If you look at Rockstar's page, it quite clearly says:

"PLEASE NOTE that while this game may be downloaded for free by all who register by filling out the form on this page, it is NOT freeware and may not be mirrored or duplicated by any third parties without express written consent from Rockstar Games."

At the moment if anyone googles for "grand theft auto 2 free torrent download", this PressF1 thread is the 3rd hit. I don't think it is appropriate for IDG to have a torrent link for a game to which no consent was given from Rockstar.

For all to enjoy.

The torrent?

27.2 KB

The actual download?

344.7MB

We've had 6 downloads so far of it according to stats. Not that it matters at all...

Download Azureus, just search Google for it, easy to find.

Then you open the small .torrent file with it, and you get GTA2 :)

Tip: For faster download speed, if you are behind a router, foward port 6681 and 6969.

Cheers

is that azureus any good even though i am on dial up? can you pause and resume?

Metla
03-01-2005, 05:16 PM
torrent clients work by uploading at the same time as downloading, when i tried to use them on dialup it took hours to get started, and as soon as others started to source the file from me my download came to a standstill....

george12
03-01-2005, 06:42 PM
What? That's not how it's meant to work.

When others get it from you, that's when it speeds up ... usually, never tried it on dialup though.

Harvey Normans have it on sale @ $19.95, at that price hardly seems worth downloading it

Metla
03-01-2005, 09:59 PM
Its not worth $19.95


Its not even worth the trip into Harvey normans,but then...nothing in the shop is....


Apart from the odd special.

i managed to download it but it just refuses to run at all on my computer in my signature - ive had some trouble with old games (usually involves downloading a 3DFX wrapper or some such) but ended up giving up and ive probably lost the .exe for it :annoyed:

no you cant - it is an old game you know - also since its on PC i assume your using a keyboard so when you press a key its either on or off - not like a PS2 where you can sit at a certain speed in gran turismo 4 e.c.t just by holding a little less pressure on the gamepad
