Limit Launcher's download speed

What title says, a lot of people haven’t 200 mb/s download speed, some people share internet (brothers, friends, coworkers, etc…) and content is usually big, so sometimes you want watch a stream or youtube videos or etc… while downloading.

I think will be great an option to limit Launcher’s download speed, so we can download content without eating all the bandwidth.

Hey Ikifenix,

Thank you for your awesome feature request. I have submitted your request. If for any reason you need to reference this report in the future, please refer to: UE-13530

Cheers!

An implementation of UE-13530 would be really awesome. Other launchers like Steam or Uplay are already using a solution for limiting the usage of bandwidth.

Agreed! I was just looking for the setting and was bummed that I couldn’t find it!

Would be awesome to have this.

I’m in too

+1 Download speed moderation would be great. Example settings would be steam download settings, I can cap the download.

Agreed! I was just looking for the setting and was bummed that I couldn’t find it!

I feel like a grave digger but… Are there any updates concerning UE-13530?

The lack of this feature once again confirms for me that even though steam is pretty awful it’s still the best game client out there

:stuck_out_tongue: Steam is the only real client also it isn’t a sh*t like Uplay or Origin which both are many times down, lag and stop you from logging in due to “failed attempts” and don’t have a 2 step verification and don’t give a fu** about user information leakage also EA is the worst company with Ubisoft due to TOO RESTRICTIVE DRM also MICRO$OFT is on that list sooner than later due to their DRM Crippled windows 10 games

I would love this feature!! Would make downloading updates for paragon a lot easier as I can leave it running without crippling my internet connection for the rest of my flat :slight_smile:

Want this…
Need this…
It’s a must have…
Why is it not here yet?

There are also quite a few requests for this feature from people playing UT.

Vote YES for UE-13530!

What’s the link? :slight_smile:

Will this be soon implemented?

Hi everyone.

The ticket number has changed, but this is still on our radar as OPP-6141 - Add a global download throttle for the launcher to the settings menu. (there is no public link to the ticket).

We don’t have a target date yet, as the implementation is non-trivial, but we shall be reviewing our options in the near future to try to make progress on this.

Cheers

Hi everyone,

@Stephan Ellis how is the status of OPP-6141 - Add a global download throttle for the launcher to the settings menu?
Are the work on it has begun or is this still in waiting pipeline?

It wouldn’t be too hard to implement I would imagine. It’s not that trivial to many with families that play video games daily. Having all bandwidth saturated for an two+ hours doesn’t help anybody, and I’d imagine it’d clear up some network headroom on your servers, too. It’s a win-win for very little effort, and it’s a deal breaker for many, including myself. C’mon now.
