A while back I wrote a utility to do bulk downloads from the Line 6 Tone Transfer site. I found and fixed a couple bugs and made some small improvements. The updated program is available at:
To use the program you simply go to http://customtone.com, pick a product (PODxt, Vetta II, etc.), and then copy and paste the URL into the "Source Url" box in my downloader. You can supply additional filters and selections. Basically any option you can select on their web page will work.
For example, if you want patches compatible with the Vetta II that contain "Variax", the URL ends up being:
This was just copied from my browser's address bar.
I have not tried the program with dial-up, it should work. I just don't have a way to test it.
NOTE: I wrote this program on Windows XP. I have not tried it on Windows 2000 but in theory it should work just fine. It will definitely not work on Windows 95/98/Me so don't bother trying. Use at your own risk - no guarantees - etc.
Let me know if you have any problems and I will do my best to resolve them.
