We recommend (and support) the use of resumable download managers for customers on slow connections. With our other games, including those larger in size than Gates of Troy, many 56k customers have had excellent results with the software at www.stardownloader.com. I wouldn't recommend download large files over a 56k line without it.
Another option, if you can wait another week or so, is to order the boxed version. As soon as production of the initial "game on demand" stocks is complete, a physicial shipment willbe available for an additional $10, which includes a professionally printed full color DVD box and CD.
