Trouble installing 4.0.6
Return to board index
I just got a new PC and downloaded the game from the website. It downloaded pretty quickly up to 4.0.3 I believe. Now I'm downloading patch 4.0.6 and for some reason it says it's 12 gb big. That's not a problem, but the fact that it's downloading so darn slow. It's like, half a GB per hour. My KB/s seem to go up and down never staying still. At the moment it's on the orange part where you can play the game while still installing, but obviously it's not very pretty.
I really don't know what it could be. I just got a game from Steam and it downloaded pretty quick, plus, I'm using Internet just fine. Anyone?
WoW patching works on a peer-to-peerish network... its all sleight of hand and
twist of fate
magic behind the scenes, but you're probably being bottlenecked by the fact that most people turn off their sharing once they've got what they needed.
... or not. It's all mystical phrases and a dead chicken from my point of view.
Try a PC/Network reboot. It may help. As the downloader remembers where it got to I can't see it doing any harm.
Seem to remember that the downloader can get in a muddle if it's going for a long time.
