Partial media download works! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I'd just like to thank the devs and inform modem users everywhere!

I just pulled down the Midnight patch, and it started off with 23 minutes of media download, which I thought would be followed by the full 90 minute pull down. But imagine my surprise when after 23 minutes, the client started normally! I was so excited, I even closed it and restarted to make sure there was no more media, and sure enough, there was not.

The days of 90-120 patch downloads may be behind us I think, so thanks to all the devs that fixed that problem (watch now I speak too soon and it happens again, but at least this time, it finally worked)

I dunno, the one I just got (it just finished) was a 46 minute one followed by a ~180 minute one...

Perhaps I was downloading the patch that fixes the partial download, and all subsequent ones will be partial?

*shrugs* Either way, I'm set for Midnight. ^^

I'm in the former catagory with much thanks to the devs. I even closed the client and reopened to check and went under More Options and Midnight is there. Perhaps you missed the last patch and had to download it as well as the new one? Just a thought.

Now I'm wondering. Several people have said that, but ALL I've gotten is the 20 min one.

Cleaver just e-mailed me back. You download the 20 min one. If it booches then it reverts back to the 180 form and that's where the second one is from. Guess some of you booched! :(

If it's any consolation you aren't alone, and those of us who DID download the 20 min one haven't actually used it yet. We may booch it yet! (But God I hope not...)

Is there someway to retry the 20min one?

This is getting VERY frustrating doing multiple hr downloads EVERY DAY. If there is one thing that will get me to stop playing this is it.
