Also, uninstall Pando Media Booster after the install, unless you have great bandwidth.

Also also, PMB is installed silently with a League of Legends install (and many other free-to-play MMOs), so if you guys are experiencing latency or have limited internet, check out your running processes for pmb.exe!

I was wondering where that thing came from.

Also, I can't play this :( The graphics look pretty high end. Too bad.
Now put that media booster in the context of paying per GB you go over your limit~!
...Oh WOW. I installed League of Legends, maybe, a year ago? Never played it?

Hahaha. Ahahahaha. Fuck me crossways with seven sharp implements. If that thing has been screwing with me for a year... Well it's uninstalled now, if my internet usage goes down a crapton I suppose I should be happy. Still.... >.<

THAAANK YOU good people for informing me about that.

Well, to Star Trek Online's credit, they were very up front about it and highlighted that they use PMB to install the game. In fact, that's how I found out about it in the first place.
pff who would even play star trek online, losers. I probably got it from LoL... which is for a league of losers... ):

On an unrelated note, our posts were exactly 12 hours apart. /nerd
I definitely want to try this out since I am a big Trek fan, but The Old Republic is awesome and unbeatable in my mind right now, and I don't want another MMO eating up time that I could spend playing it instead!

Maybe later next month or in March I may check this out since I've been interested for a good while now. I'm just a "one MMO at a time" kind of guy, so it has to wait for now until The Old Republic loses some of its fun.
For the (Old) Republic!

Just downloaded Star Trek online, my username is slaymanexe. Apparently my Dudesoft account was banned, no idea how or why, or when I made an account!
It was linked to my primary email, so... Weird.

Anyway, I'll be on later tonight and come bAck with thoughts on initial gameplay.

Cool. I'll be interested to hear how it plays.

I just finished watching all of TNG just a few months ago, so my interest in Star Trek is pretty high :/ There's a small chance I can play it on my sister's new laptop, but she was iffy about that.

Maybe if you stop using Squidward avatars she wouldn't think you're shady! Use cool dogs like me! :D

She will have to allow me to play now. To do otherwise would be...illogical.

I just wanted to bring to your attention that you can actually control the amount of bandwidth that Pando Media Booster uses when it is installed (as well as turn it off/on, set cache options, and change a number of other things). You can find more information about PMB here: http://www.pandonetworks.com/what-is-pando-media-booster And more on controlling options here: http://www.pandonetworks.com/Pando-Media-Booster-Games-FAQ

If anyone has concerns about or issues with PMB please don't hesitate to contact us at downloader@pando.com and we will be happy to assist you. We are listening to what the community has to say.
