Downloading, gone to the dogs

Recommended Posts

I started my download (xbox for PC) at 00:05 local time (East AU) and watched progress for about 30 min. All looked good, 10Gb - so I went to bed. 06:00 local time I got up expecting it to be finished (6 hours later) and I’m sitting on 50Gb of 91Gb and after watching for a while the download speed must be down in the Kb/sec.

It will be some time before I will see it finish.

Anyone else experiencing the same?

Thanks, but that would mean aborting and starting again. Who knows what trouble that may cause. At least it is still progressing.

I’m assuming it is the download traffic is increasing.

What happened to “this is Microsoft, they have the bandwidth for this”. Lol aged like milk. I’ll be in the major wave tonight with everyone else at midnight. 🙂

You can abort and start the app again! It will resume download where it stopped.

I feel sorry for my western neighbours in Australia, sounds like your servers got a bit busy.

Also, I hope that your luck improves soon.

Yes this is disappointing. Would normally take around 4 hrs to download this in the alpha/beta. Been going for 8 hrs and I am only 70% done.

Started off at full speed and dropped off through the night.

Similar issue here, started downloading 00:10am AEST, went well for a while, then word not allowed, sometimes it seemed like restarting the app would help, but now I'm just stuck with ~30GB to go and nothing seems to get the speeds above the Kbps area 😞

I have the same issue, stuck around 30GB to go, and only downloading a kbs speed.
MSFS help page regarding download speed suggested a netsh command to run. I restarted the installer after I ran the command, and instead of continuing to download, it thought that the package was complete and started offering me menu options, even tough 30% of the content was still missing.

After wading through all of the forced options, I quit the program and restarted again.

This time it recognised that not all packages had been downloaded, and recommenced.

However this time its telling me it has downloaded 50 Gig (I was up to 60 gig in the previous install) out of a total of 14.7 Gig.

Clearly to calculations regarding how much left to download are incorrect.

Same here - slow as a wet week in Melbourne, AU. This will take forever on my very modest 100mbps internet.
