If you ordered from D2D and downloaded the zip file, the updater may be trying to download a 10GB patch for no reason. I had this problem too, then realized that the hogg files were missing from when I first extracted them and installed the game.
After uncompressing the files the first time:
Step 1. Install the game once.
Step 2. Check if the pigg folder is empty after installation. I believe that the installer is cutting and pasting the files rather than copying.
Step 3. Unzip the pigg folder a second time, to the same location as the setup.exe.
Step 4. Run the installer again to the same location. It will see that there are hogg files already in your install folder and proceed to install them onto an application data folder.
Step 5. Run the patcher again and see if it is still trying to download the 10GB patch. After I did these steps, it allowed me to launch the game right away, so I could tweak my video and audio settings to my liking.
I used the client that D2D uses, when it finished downloading i hit the Play button in the D2D download manager and did not unzip any file, and now there is no Ziipped file anywhere when i search for one.
So I downloaded the game from fileplanet and my friends and I installed the "SAME" download on three different machines. 1 friend had to download a 100mb patch. another friend had to download a 1GB patch. I'm forced to download a 10GB patch. WTF?? How does this make any sense.
