    OK, important info 80MB download/20Mb upload, and Ive been trying 3.5 hours, and Ive got 30% of the patch :(

    speed tested internet, can get to forums..

    Ive restarted the patcher.. Im not a steam user. Any ideas? Original install and subsequent patch or 2 has gone ok, but not this.

    May just be network traffic or lack of seeders at the moment.

    Yeah. I'm at least two hours away from being able to get in the game. It's been this way on release day for quite a few releases. Anyway, a new version of Blender is out, so I'm checking it out while I wait.

    Then it may take me longer than two more hours. It's downloading at ~140K bytes/ second for me.

    We are at 36%. I thought to blame it on the hotel wifi, but maybe not since others are having the same issue. Unless we are all at the same hotel. ;)

    Room 504! 5th floor. King suit!
    But no it's probably partially the wifi and it's a big patch I guess.

    So you can stop and restart without having to download everything all over again?

    It has been 7+ hours for me and am only at 41%. It doesn't get over 170 KB/s and for long periods sits at 0 KB/s.
    I have a 25 GB/s fibreoptic connection. Also not on steam.

    yes it catches up to where you left off. So no worries about restarting. Sometimes you need to. @Hermetic

    I'm having similar issues. I've been at it all day but neither my PC nor my laptop have succeeded in finishing the patch. :(

    Like I mentioned. I believe it is a huge patch but I am unsure on that issue. It did take me 3 + hours to patch and install.
    As far as when in the past when my patch froze and I closed it down it made me restart from the beginning each time and start over downloading it. Maybe this issue was fixed?

    Yup, you guys should BUG REPORT it !
    Steam NEVER has issues patching, and it's much, much faster. Took me about 15 mins thru Steam.
    Why is this ?? It's not network speed issues, that's for sure.

    Oh I just tried something and that was to close out of the web site and my patching sped up. Was it coincidence, fate, or yes is there a connection to the two ;) Good luck fellow Avatars. :)

    Takes 1 hour on a 1MB/s line.

    Just close the patcher, grab the torrent from your C:\Program Files (x86) \Portalarium\Shroud of the Avatar\Downloads (or whatever your install directory is)

    Then launch the torrent (to run whatever bittorrent client you have installed)

    Wait for download to finish

    Copy over the file to folder you got the torrent from

    Run patcher, will run up to 100% in under 1 min

    Then applying

    Cheers,

    KS


    PS: I use qBittorrent but there are many clients to choose fro. Some have adware
