hi all,

i found a usefull way for myself, maybe it will help u too.

created a batch file:
start <path to akamai>\AppData\Local\Akamai\netsession_win.exe

ping -n 1 -w 4000 > nul


taskkill /F /IM netsession_win.exe

it starts akamai (u need ur path inserted), then wait 4sec, then start the ddopreloader.exe (the one for the speed startup from the forums)
then when the loader ends (when u get in the game) kills akamai
saved the bat file in the ddo folder

i use win8.1 and stopped the akamai service on startup
