Why is The Witcher 2 downloading an 8gb update????

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I get home after a long day at work and finally get some time to myself... I was playing this game the last two nights very well, absolutely nothing wrong. Now i just sat down and click play and it says converting to a new more recent formaty or something. BAM 8gb update and i cannot play. I got a 6 hours update

Can i remove this or something

EDIT; im running version 2.0

Sounds like you havent updated it yet. There are new items/equipment, a "Dark" mode, and an arena mode. All good stuff you shouldnt miss out on. I dont think you can cancel the update either...

Where do you live?

8GB should take no where near 6 hours to download in this day and age, your average connection in the USA (which is slower than many places in the world) would download that in about an hour. Theres connections that you can get for $60-70/month in most places that will download that in minutes.

Any minor patch to The Witcher 2 will require around a 8GB download. This is how steam patches some games. Most people don't care/notice because internet has gotten to the point where 8GB isn't that large.

If your in an area that doesn't offer faster speeds, then that sucks.. if not.. considering getting better internet.

Ah, I see. Steam always downloads at about 5-12MB/s for me. Have you tried changing your download server? Settings > Downloads + Cloud > Download Region. I think you have to restart Steam for it to take affect.

I just decided to look at my witcher and it did some converting and now downloadoading a 9 gig update at 2.2MB a sec. My guess is they changed the format to be easyer to update and not get the double update bug. I noticed sometimes steam would update it then the game would update and then steam would do it again lol.

HMM seems strange if you are already up to date ?

This makes me laugh you buy a game that requires internet access you play said game for some time, the game needs an update a rather large update and you infringe your contract with the internet service providers, who grants you an unlimited download and then restrict you because you have downloaded what is deemed to be over there FAIR USAGE policy,

Games have gotten bigger over the years,
ISP have gotten tighter over the years,

lol witcher 2 probly has consumed 40gigs of bandwith sence i got it maybe more and your right games have got huge i got 10 or so while they were on sell and i bet i downloaded 100-150gigs in games. You could easy go over 100-250 gigs if you get 10-15 games a month with steam sales you could do that with under 75-100 bucks.
