Why is there a patch of 1.4 gigs.

I may be new to programming 1.4 gigs is not a patch. It's a new flip'n program. And if that is the case how do you not set this up for quick downloads.


THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

The graphics better have a huge improvement.

There is no reason this game should look like it was created 15 years ago.


I just started playing cause I heard it was better than BSG online, but so far BSG is far less a head ache then this.

Yeh it does work Only down side is that for tonight we will have to put up with the downloading content on demand that usually extends the loading screens a little but no biggie I suppose. Just remember to turn it back on tomorrow.

Mine dropped from 4.4 gig to 1 gig.

After now nearly 3 hours of downloading, this gigabyte is at almost 60% done, while my router twiddles thumbs waiting for more data from Cryptic.

Very, very bad joke, guys.. I guess the whole package would take several days to download.

Patching is still slow, but I just got to 44% in 5 mins while before it took 2 hours for 12%.

So it's bearable, on demand patching, I only disabled that recently.

I followed the advice still restarts itself always when it roughly reaches 11%, and lets be honest here, this is not the first patch that causes these problems, which brings me back to stupid and incompetent programmers

I would be willing to bet the patch servers are getting hit quite hard. My client is patching... trickling down the kilobits... at 95% now. Started patching at 3:05PM EST. Now its 3:47PM EST. Not too shabby for 1256.1mb.

Now if I were patching on my old dial up connection... I'd most likely end up at that padded cell at the local police station...


Give it time folks, not everything comes down at your ISP's advertised speeds.

Yeh they will be taking a right royal beating Its just annoying when we wanna play and its going so damn slow. Mine is closer to dial up and I'm old enough to remember Kbps speed and not Mbps Really wanted to play tonight (UK) wouldn't be too bad if it was in the day.

Playing DC online while I wait and I just patched 512mb in 4 minutes
