I have slow rural internet (1.5 Mb/s or 187K/sec max) so downloading a UE build can take quite some time. And when it does it completely hammers my connection so nothing else is possible. This does not go over well in the house.
So I installed NetBalancer and limited the Launcher’s download speek to 80K/second. That leaves enough room for the family to easily watch Netflix and surf.
The weird thing is that I’m watching the traffic both in the NetBalancer and Epic Launcher UI and seeing consistent download speeds, but it’s as if all those packets are being rejected by the Launcher. It’s been going for hours and it hasn’t made a dent in the progress.
It was at 68% when I started throttling it and it’s been at 68% since.
Anyone else throttle their downloads, and do you have any issues with it?
