That's normal. Actual download size should almost always be smaller than the listed amount because a lot of those files are "packaged", similar to a ZIP or RAR, but in a format specific to the game/company.

When mine crapped out at 46%, the true downloaded total in my folder was 1.82 gig.

The "Disable on-demand patching and force verify" trick seems to be working for me. At least I got past 46.5% point. Currently 57.6% and counting. Let's hope it will work all the way.

EDIT: Scratch that. After exiting game launcher popped up again and again started downloading from 0% and again stuck at 46.5%.

Well at this point im just completely lost. For me in the last few days the launcher has been saying it needs a 5gig patch and iv done this 3 times and every time it freezes at 36%, and have lost about 6gigs, so maybe it is patching but at the same time it freezes. Iv been reading the forums on this issue and iv tried one option to Disable on demand patching, restarted my launcher and once again its patching. For the first time it hasent froze and im now at 72% and still going another 4gigs lostSo if you havent done it yet try disabling on demand patching, at the moment its working for me. IM just not sure after it completes should uncheck on demand patching? This is the only and last option im trying, and at this point im just gunna wait for the actual launch of LOR.

I've always had on-demand patching disabled. Tried force verifying files. Still crashes when trying to patch.

Same problem here.
And if I try to disable download by demand and force verify, it downloads everything (5890MB) and it seems ok. But, when I get back into the game and exit, it verifies everything again and download starts again again again.

I also have download limits. High, but I can't do it 10 times (I've tried about 5 or 6 attempts).

I've just purchased the Romulan starter pack and it's giving me an option to download the client through a torrent.
Can anyone confirm if this is the patched client. Common sense says it is but... you never know.
I'd rather not waste what "little" download limit I have.

Hey Cryptic. Why not offer just the patch on torrent to take the load off your patch servers.

~Edit - I just started the client torrent and it's only 3.32gb so it's most likely not even a patched client.
