downloaded the game from direct2drive. After the installation was successful, I played, then there was an Update I guess, but my launcher did not want to download it, instead just crash.
when reinstalling the game, i did not notice, that most of the files were gone (7.65 GB -> 200 MB), and the launcher started to "update" by downloading ~5 GB with a incredible speed of around 200kb/s or less.
So i guess reinstalling is not wanted by cryptic??? I don't like getting files I downloaded deleted under my fingers! And it's immensly frustrating! Now I download the game once again ... 1.8 MB/s.
I really really hope, you reconsider you're upgrade / install policy ... maybe just ask something like "your freakin' harddrive might be full, do you want us to remove all the files you possibly will need in a day or two and then wonder why the launcher has to download more than 5 GB?"
I found out how to beat th 10 gig patch. I have windows 7 so I dont know if this will work for other versions of windows.
I took the folder located at: C:\Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studioss and I copied it to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptic Studios
I overwrote EVERYTHING. Then I launched the updater and it downloaded 1 little file and now I can play! YAY!
