I have had this with a couple of games recently but not since they updated the new GM.

The trial version took about 5 minutes and I'm now just downloading the full version. I'm at 50% in 5 mins.

I don't understand why some people have a problem with DL and others have no problem at all.

Hallelulah! it has just finished downloading at last ... it took 2 hours 45 minutes total for the sample 163.58 Mb, goodness knows how long it will take the 354.86 Mb if I ever decide to buy it .

I really feel for you Rebecca and Galphimia .

I had no problem with trial download but having now purchased the game the d/l stuck at 12% and would not move.

Have uninstalled and will try again tomorrow.

I think it depends on your internet connection. The download took me only 2 minutes

It is NOT my Internet Connection. It's now 14:45 here in Austria, downloaded again, took 3 minutes. But now I cannot close the GM any more.

Took 9 minutes from start of D/L to end of installation. I never have been able to figure out why some take so long and others, like this one, go so quickly. It doesn't appear to have a lot to do with size except for LFGs.

4 minutes 23 seconds for the trial to download and install, which included the 4 seconds it took the game manager to open. During that time I was listening to audio files as well as reading the forum.

My desk top is antique and this downloaded in less than 15 min. I didn't time it but between 10 and 15.
The only problem I had is after installation I had two of the same demo in my Game Manager. I closed the manager and reopened. From that point everything was great.

30 mins. 15% downloaded, I have tried to pause and resume the file, but won't budge!
I never had this problem before, and my connection runs in a large broadband, I had the same problem yesterday trying to download a beta tester file I was sent, it got stuck to 1%.
Well I am sure it's just a temporary issue, I hope so!!

After reading about extreme DL times, I decided to time mine.
1 minute DL
1 minute install
20 seconds activation.

Obviously I've got a fast cable hook-up.

I feel quite guilty that my DL was so fast but believe me, it will be worth the wait. I've been playing the game for about 7 hours and have just finished the main game - leaving the bonus chapter until tomorrow.

Don't know if it will help anyone, but I use a download accelerator. Took less than minute to finish. I download also quite a few books per week and ran across an accelerator. If interested just put in search and then research . just remember to open it every so long and delete files. I' been using one for over a year and big difference.
