Re: simcity the update taking forever

Re: simcity the update taking forever

Same here. I've had the update downloading for two hours now and it's stuck on 10%. This ALWAYS happens when I try to play. Since purchasing the game a couple months ago, I've only been able to play it once and that was after leaving it to download overnight. This is crap! We pay good money for a product and can't even access it??? Someone needs to fix this ASAP. I won't be making any further purchases from EA until they get their sh*t together.

Re: simcity the update taking forever

Mine gets all the way done then i get "ERROR CODE SMCY-9: SimCity failed data validation. Please retry or see the customer support link for help." I honestly am sick and tired of EA too. I have had so many problems with them and you cant even call them if you need to, you have to sit in a stupid chat room. I dont plan on doing that so either they better fix it or I am never buying a single product from them ever again

Re: simcity the update taking forever

I've had to uninstall & reinstall which takes long enough, now this update?! I've been here for hours, what is it that needs updating exactly? especially when its a struggle to get into the game at all

Re: simcity the update taking forever

Same Here. I've managed to get it to mave along a bit by disconnecting and then reconnecting after a few minutes to the internet. Annoying, but I have found that this worked for me. :smileyhappy:
