Steam Downloads

Postby nevvy on Sat Apr 04, 2009 12:47 pm

I purchased GTA4 a few days ago off steam and it is MASSIVE. my internet is a bit poo too, so it'll take a good few days to download, which is fine.

obviously i'll be pausing it every now and then to play TF2, download other stuff etc. When i hit pause, the download stops, but if i open TF2 it'll restart again giving me a ping of 10billion. The only solution that i have found is to pause it, then restart steam. when i woke up this morning the download was at 33%, i restarted steam and played some TF2 before going out.

when i returned a few hours later the download was at 15% :S is it resetting itself each time? will it ever reach 100%? i fully expect this to be a steam bug but i do not want to waste massive amounts of bandwidth and energy.

all depends how much bandwidth is allocated to GTA4 and how many people are trying to download it.

the game download should automatically pause when you launch a full screen game from Steam

GTA 4 on the PC is abit of a waste. You may encounter difficulties actually playing the game.

ANd I had the same problem when I downloaded it. It just takes time :( Didn't do it with the other games though.
TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.


:D
