I am not familiar with WinMX, but your download speed is dependant on who you are downloading from. Obviousy when connected to a server you will get good speed, however when downloading from a user on WinMX, you will only get the speed of the user

The game is using high compression. so the game does not stutter on line while you play

try downlaoding only from people with DSL, Cable, T1, T2 and T3 when using winmx. I never download from people with less that these as it takes an eternity to download the file.
