TC Steam keeps redownloading[SOLVED]

Post by amtct » Wed, 14. Dec 11, 06:10

When I try to download the game through steam it keeps redownloading when it gets to @1,500MB.

Yes I tried:
-tried to download it on a different HDD
-tried to download it inside Program Files default steam location
-instal it using the retail disk
-I have a fast enough connection and my RAM is good (just in case someone thinks the files get errors when they are copied on the HDD)

I need a fix till 15 this month or I won't be able to play XAP DLC.

Thanks in advance .

We can't really help with problems with the actual download process. That's something you'd have to contact Steam support about.

One suggestion though: since you also, I think, have a disk copy of the game, you could try bypassing most of the download process by following the instructions at the end of this FAQ entry.

Did that but it rechecks the game and it starts redownloading it from @33%.

I solved the problem by clicking play before the game was ready to play .Now I have to wait till midnight to get X AP :D

Steam was up and down like a yoyo from 6pm UK time until around 10 pm UK 14/12/2011 that might have been part of your issue.
