Re: Downloading Updated Data

[ Edited ]

I'm still updating also. I don't even think I'll even be able to try to play because this doesn't seem like it will be done anytime soon. That's even if I can play since all I've seen is complaints... :smileyindifferent: This game just seems like its going to be a pain until they fix it.

Re: Downloading Updated Data

File is a bit over 3gb

 

Connection issues apparently... patience is required

 

Troubleshooting process:

 

 - Uninstall Origin

 - Install new Origin

 - Connect direct to modem 

 - Disable router, firewalls and anti virus

 - End all processes and applications in task manager except explorer and taskmanager

 

- When you receive the error while 'Processing Large File... Please wait' message close Origin completely then either launch SimCity or Recovery file:

\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityRecovery.exe

 

- This will take you back to 10% but will catch up to your previous % quickly then progress slowely again.

- Once you get to 40% things speed up and it should only take a few minutes from there.

 

- Then it will say everything updated and you will probably have new issues.

First step from there to avoid the common 'Updating' loop and inactivity follow instructions to clear your user data file in the Origin folder.

- Close SimCity completely the delete all files in 

\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityUserData

 Then restart SimCity and goodluck... this does work.

Re: Downloading Updated Data

I noticed that when you finished installing the game, the size of the game folder was just about 280 MB but the game's HDD requirement is 10 GB which is more than 30 times larger, that's why.... Why didn't EA just let us download the whole 10GB installer and install it at once so we can play the game after the 'installment' not being forced to download another 10 GB 'update' which takes days to finish?

Re: Downloading Updated Data

Well considering the Min. Sys. Rqmnts. state minimum 10GB HD disk space ... come on people ... Origon DL was 256 MB ... so 10 GB minus 256MB is what and how long !!! :smileyhappy: LOL LMAO! :smileyhappy:

Re: Downloading Updated Data

Been trying to update for over 24 hours now. Tried deleting my UserData a couple times. Here's my latest UpdateLog.txt (I last deleted the UserData about 9 hours ago):

Edit: Is there anywhere else I can send this? The log exceeds 20,000 characters!! :smileysad:

 

Here's the most recent try in the log:
