Purchased and now it redownloads?

[Post New]by beckx020 on Aug 21, 10 2:22 PM
I downloaded and demoed it and when I bought it, it redownloaded it? Some of us have CAPS on their internet. If it was going to do that, we should be warned ahead of time! I wouldn't have bought it.

Almost a gig of my 5 gig cap, just for this game!

A couple other ones have done this too. If that doesn't stop I will shop somewhere else. Overages for me are $45 a gig extra. And that starts at 1 (one) byte over the limit.

I've noticed this too when a demo only goes to a certain point and stops regardless of how much time is left of your trial. the trial download is only a small portion of the entire game so you have to download the whole thing when you purchase it

Do you mean to say you have some kind of limit for downloads, after which you get charged (obscenely, I might add)? I've never heard of such a thing - are you in the US? Can't imagine what that would cost me as I own lots of the large file games!

Anyway, I believe that you get a 'large file warning' prior to download. It lists the amount of estimated time depending on your internet speed, and gives you the chance to cancel. I think it also tells you the size of the file.

I would assume if you cancelled the DL for those reasons, BFG would give you a credit. I have always found them to be more than reasonable whenever I have any problems.

Not everyone has DSL or cable. I have wireless because that's all there is here.

There is no large file warning on this game. It's not a large file game.

The issue is that it doesn't say I have to redownload. If you have to redownload, it should state that right by the Try and Buy buttons. I then wouldn't even bother to try it.

The download page for this game states:
TRY IT (165.15 M
BUY IT (313.04 M

I've been caught a couple of times before, too, so it pays to look carefully.
