Blizzard Downloader für Patch 3.2 verbessert

Soeben hat Blizzard im amerikanischen Forum eine Verbesserung des Blizzard Downloaders für Patch 3.2 angekündigt. Unter anderem wird neben einer ganzen Anzahl geschwindigkeitssteigernder Massnahmen jetzt auch Bonjour unterstützt. Das komplette Posting lest ihr unten und hinter dem Newsumbruch.

Ob das auch ein Hinweis auf das Patch 3.2 Release an diesem Mittwoch ist, werden wir allerdings erst in ein paar Stunden wissen, wenn in den USA die Server für die bereits angekündigte erweiterte Wartung heruntergefahren werden. Erst dann nämlich pflegt man dort bekannt zu geben, ob ein Patch beim Wiederhochfahren zur Verfügung stehen wird.

Blizzard Downloader Improvements

Patch 3.2, Call of the Crusade, will be delivered via a new downloader that has a number of performance upgrades! These changes will also be effective for World of Warcraft background downloads after Patch 3.2.0.

Support for Bonjour
Blizzard Downloader now supports Bonjour, which is a service discovery protocol that locates and communicates with other downloaders in the same LAN to increase download speed. This feature is particularly useful in colleges, internet cafes, and homes where people have multiple computers behind one internet connection. If you are a PC user who does not currently have Bonjour installed on your PC (iTunes users already have Bonjour installed) and you wish to take advantage of this new feature, download and install Bonjour from this location: http://support.apple.com/downloads/Bonjour_for_Windows

Idle State Detection
Blizzard Downloader now detects when a player’s machine is idle. At such a time, the downloader will stop throttling its download speed in order to deliver data more quickly.

Improved UPNP Support
We have updated our support of UPnP so that more people can benefit from automatic router configuration. This will dramatically improve the download experience for about 5% of our player-base, but all customers will see a slight benefit.

Other New Features

  • The downloader will now resume prior downloads instantly without needing to scan your data.
  • Improved handling of disk-full situations.
  • List of cards with full P2P support is now dynamically updated.
  • Additional optimizations.
