Sorry my bad, it was an 8 gig download for the entire program, not just the launcher. But either way this game is to big and requires to much to be played on an old copy of windows and an old partition system.
this has really upset me that I've submitted 3 emails, 0 responses.... and none on forums at all. i've downloaded game 3 different times now... Installed half a dozen. Took down all things that might have blocked anything, and nothing has helped... still stuck on "trying to update the launcher"
I'm giving up tonight and declaring game dead for me.
I am having the exact same problem, it just says trying to update launcher forever. I have also tried getting assistance and have gotten no responses. Since so many people are having this problem they better fix it soon or it will just go on the list of things that are making this game seem mediocre at best. But its pretty bad marketing to sell a game that doesn't even start up for many people. Just got a new computer that is more than powerful enough to run the game, so I know its not my computer
