So when I first started up the launcher, I was downloading the game at a good 1.8 mb/s. After about a minute, it kept decreasing and went down to a constant 200 kb/s. Now I closed out of the launcher and booted it back up to see if that was the problem, and ALL the download progress was gone and it started at 0% again. Hoping there aren't excess files, i let it download. AGAIN it starts off download at 1.7-8 mb/s, and decreases to 200 kb/s. HELP? Also heres my speedtest: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3282955060

I have had problems updating the beta lately as well. I don't think I ever started back at 0% though. Mine usually has something weird happening with the files remaining. It will say like 500 m/b remaining then jump to 17k and go all over the place. I'd say just let it run over night or all day and see if it finishes. I'm sure they know their launcher is a little buggy atm.

This is what ZOS has said about the download speed, can try these solutions and see if they work.

Quote:"If the beta download and installation process is running slow, there are several temporary solutions:

First, try disabling the firewall and anti-virus. Default Windows firewalls will come on automatically after others are disabled, so keep in mind that the Windows firewall may need to be disabled, too. Always remember to turn them on again after the download completes.

Once we have more information, we may be able to provide router ports to assist with configuring a router for our game. Until that time, please be patient as we grow our beta sessions. With the large number of participants, there could be some slowness as we go through these sessions.

Download speeds are directly related to internet connection speed. If the overall connection speed seems slow, verify it through a third party source like SpeedTest. This site, and many others, will calculate internet connection speed (higher numbers are better). If the overall internet connection speed is slow, contact your Internet Service Provider and have them troubleshoot the connection with you."

It's a very temperamental launcher. Leave it alone a couple of hours as if it were a brooding teenager and you'll be fine.

Not sure, that's all that ZOS suggests for now. Just leave it run over night and see if it finishes.

Well, since I've been in three so far, looks like there isn't too much for me to download. But man, the first and second times it took all freaking day. So I feel your pain.

I've pre-purchased the digital Imperial edition... Apparently the game is supposed to be 60 gb? I hope they implement a faster download/install by then.

If you have been part of beta then It will probably just update the beta client for the live version, so It shouldn't take to long.

Oh, I know that's why. I said the first and second times were rough; both being 10+ gb each. The third took about and hour and this one took 35 minutes.

Live is same sinze as Beta, it only reserves 60 gb during installation for temp-files, patches and such for implementation, full game is 30gb but you shuold have at least 60gb free anyway.
