BF Hardline download speed = @#$%?
« on: 07:06 PM - 03/17/15 »
So I got a wild hair and decided to go ahead and buy this today. I figured it could download while I run some errands and such. It's now been 8hrs. just checked it and it just reached 13%!

I may never buy a digital download again!

WTH is this crap? Anyone else having this problem or know some kind of fix?

I've tried restarting the system, re queuing, doesn't matter - snails pace, ugh...

UPDATE: Just hit 14%! Woot Woot!

That's strange, happened to me as well. I canceled the download and ran it again and it seemed to download at a normal rate. Spent like 2-3 hours to get only 4% at first.

I was a bit afraid to start over  :-\

Might as well though.

Hahah I was too, but I figured what did I have to lose.. It took forever for 4% anyhow and it wasn't much progress so I took the plunge and it happened to work in my favor.. Not saying this will be true for you but it worked for me.

Uninstalled, re-installed, went and took a shower, got a bite to eat, guess where I'm at?

1 @#$% %!

This is BS! At this rate, maybe I'll be playing sometime this weekend!

What platform? I preloaded it on X1 yesterday so I wasn't really paying attention to the time it took to download and install. The download time on PS4 was about an hour for me but the install time was probably another hour.

XB1 - 3rd time appears to be a charm. Only been about 5mins and I'm already up to 5%

Ok scratch that. The PS4 prologue installed but nothing else. It's at 74% installed and it's been about eight hours. Strange..

I preordered BFH  almost two weeks ago and I downloaded it then :)

Better than standing in line this morning to get the game and then install it.

Yeah, I'm one of those "spare of the moment" type people. I swore I would wait to buy this but found myself really bored with the games I have.

I was hoping to have Witcher 3 by now. Atleast it seems to be working now, 18% - I may get in a few rounds tonight after all.

Bought it a day before on PSN. The whole thing took about 4 hours (maybe sooner) to DL. But I had it on in rest mode the entire time. Which seems to make it DL faster as when you're doing stuff on PSN store or playing a game it slows down.

Also, I noticed that despite having upnp and having all the Playstation ports forwarded it still downloads faster when PS4 is in DMZ. Otherwise it starts downloading at about 8 MBs a second and then slows down after a few minutes. In DMZ it downloads consistently fast.

people were reporting slow downloads release day... yes...  it loaded fine for beta and pre-load.

you gotta remember everyone and their brother was playing yesterday, and many were downloading it too.  not to mention that all the battlepacks had to download today that don't preload.

not to mention is 45GB+  not your average game like the old 360 games that were under 600mb... this @#$% is double blueray+

Some how the countdown was off by 24 hours lol don't know how you fk that up.

There is a weird bug on PC with exiting vehicles, if you use G to exit vehicles it will pick up the default keybind and throw a nade while exiting the vehicle. Doesn't really matter, just annoying to me b.c that's always been my enter / exit key.
