installing before downloaded
 
Well, since i knew I had to wait all night, and that if something messes up a extra day or 2 wont kill me, I decided to set the setup.exe file to high priority and run it (Note, this is on the torrent download, and using Utorrent.) The file finished quick and was able to run.

After that the game was playable and is now downloading the patch, which SHOULD fill in all the missing files. If not, its just a simple reinstall, which will happen when the first install should have.

I can not say if this will or will not work, however if it does, it might cut down on like a days worth of waiting.

I will update after the patch is downloaded, but that is still a bit away.

And to everyone wondering, yes, it does say that there is a 10gb patch (which is going very slowly, but thats probably due to downloading the torrent as well)

This will end up being far slower than simply allowing the installer to download correctly.

Well, so far both are at roughly the same % finished not sure when though. Not hurting my download speeds any though.
