Well, as usual with any update to the GM, I had to change my drive to other than C: drive when I DLd the Sample version.
My Internet link was broken, so I started the DL again and guess what... the default drive was back to C: again!!
Apparently the drive has to be set BEFORE you want to DL any game EVERY time you use the new GM!!

Not sure I like the huge new hub, but hoped it would improve D/L speeds. If anything even slower now :-(( And no longer can see at what speed the kbs are coming in, or if it's just stuck.
With all the game glitches and slow D/L speeds my usual quick hour trial whilst drinking morning coffee is a thing of the past. Gaming should be fun, but lately it's become stressful.
I'm thinking of giving it up as it's anything but enjoyable lately!


That annoyed me as well!

Sorry fellow fishies but it seems you all have a problem with the Game Manager or the download. Is this the thread to check if there are problems with the game itself?

Hang on in there fishies, after all my grumbling once it got to 65% it just zoomed up to 100% and has just installed - really weird!

Ooooh goody, 16% (that's 3% in 14 minutes!) now but I have to go out - great!


I'm stuck at 68% - downloading the trial was a bit slow but the full version is taking forever! Could it be the new game manager that is at fault?

OK. I've just uninstalled the trial version of the game using Control Panel. Then I went to My Account/Purchased Games and started the download again from there. It seems to be going much quicker now. In fact, it's at 34% in less than 5 minutes.

Will keep you posted as to whether it gets stuck again or not!

Hi,
Discovered that if you press pause, it takes you to a D/L page that does show kbs. I paused this game as 2 1/2 hrs just ridiculous. I then restarted game and last 30 +% came in like wildfire.

Took 3 hours to get to 75%, I paused and then unpaused and the rest of the game installed within minutes.

Well, that didn't work. I've been downloading for two hours and it's just started installing. However, the Games Manager stopped responding so I had to use task manager to end it and restart it.

So far it's taken all morning to download the full version. Very frustrating. I'm wondering if this is something to do with the new games manager rather than the game download??

Yippeee it's just finished installing.

HI all, problems here too, the demo played beautifully, no problem with download, soon as I bought it, unable to activate, have uninstalled and reinstalled getting error message 703, anyone else getting this? very frustrating.
I hate the new manager as well, why fix it if it ain't broken???? just sayin'

I don't see the problem I had, but this is probably a no buy for me. I was enjoying the demo, decided I'll buy it (if the budget permits). Knowing I have things to do around the house exited the game. It went originally back to my desktop - no problems. Then suddenly a black screen. I could get to the start menu, but nothing else. Ended up having to crash my computer to get it to restart. I was one of those who tested the new Game Manager (tho I was forced to download the new one) and had no problems. I can't tell, at this time if the problem is with the game manager or the game.

I'll test out another game afterwhile - and post if it wasn't the game.

BFG WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?????????????? This new game manager is really inferior to the old one. I cannot believe the person who did this was sober. I, also, send my games to a different drive and do not want to have to set the path every time. In addition, I want to see the size of the file.

I agree with all in this thread - it is TOO BIG!

Why did you do this?

Hope someone pays attention and fixes this. The old manager was fine. I believe in the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Had no problem with the download, but the game play is a slight bit stubborn. I have only 10 min left, but will wait until next month to see if I want to purchase. Still don't care for the new GM, but the game itself is lovely; however I think I need to see if the loading script errors are due to the game, or to the new game manager.

As Gilda Radner used to say, 'it's always something!'
