TWD OSX Episode 3 stuck at 99.50% - HELP

posted by blackvulcan3 on - last edited - Viewed by 881 users

I have noticed through a few threads that people are complaining of the OSX Episode 3 download stopping at 99.50%, as my download has, and after some hang time (30-45 minutes) crashes the application.

From other threads this occurred in Episode 2.

I did not have this problem, although I did have download issues for Episode 2.

Perhaps we can keep the issues isolated to their own threads so they can be better managed by TT support staff.

If you have the 99.50% issue (as opposed to random percentage download crashes) please list in this thread.

  • I have tried for 5th time now. Lowering all graphics etc, (even turning sounds off!). For my 1st and 2nd attempt I did none of these thing. At that time the download went at a slow, steady pace, taking bout 4hours to reach 99.50%. Since lowering everything (attempt 3-5) it goes suuuuper fast (in about 10minutes) to 70-ish percent and then slows down eventually doing 0.01% every three seconds. When it gets to 99.50% it stops, and stays there. Will try go the other route (in other words, not the "download content"-route) and see if it works. Otherwise I'll just have to wait til TellTale gets us a fix. Have had no problems whatsoever with the game before so a bit bummed, but hey, as long as they get it fixed.

  • Nope. Happyplaying, PanicProne.

    Telltale: 99.50% again. Please fix this.

  • Well, 6th attempt, but no success. Fast up to 70% then slowing down, getting slower and slower and at last, finally, stuck at 99,50% again. Bring on the fix!

  • I, like many others, have the same annoying problem. I can't believe that Telltale won't answer any of these post... I have tried everything...

    Here is what I have done so far:
    - full screen off, all graphics to low or off.
    - full screen off, all graphics to low or off, no internet until hit the "get" button.
    - full screen on, all graphics to low or off.
    - full screen on, smallest resolution posible, all graphics to low or off, all programs closed, nobody else using my internet.
    - After getting 99.50%, try again, and again... and again.
    - I've even sang a song to the game to see if that helps and nothing!

    I really hate Telltale, they should worry about the happiness of all their clients! we are not demanding a better story, or a better game play... we are demanding to PLAY the $%^& game, a game we all bought because we thought that it was going to be awesome... I am really disappointing.
    I know that a lot of people have been trying to contact Telltale for a while to tell about this problem and that they have answer "we are working on a solution"... Well that solution, I'm pretty sure, would never arrive.

    I hope someone finds a solution for Mac and PC!

  • Just relax. Sometimes I can't believe how much anger these forums contain. The game (episode 3) was released less than a week ago on multiple platforms and if they say they're working on a solution I bet they are. TellTale themselves would be the ones most eager to fix an issue like this and I'm sure they eventually will. I'm also a bit annoyed, but remember, you are writing this on a sunday evening and like "normal" people I reckon TellTale staff have the weekend off too. So just wait and see. I bet when you get episode 3, it will all be worth it.

  • They didn't fix the problem when episode 2 came out, PanicProne.

  • @AlfredoSanchez said: More information for those still having trouble:

    The game MUST be in full-screen mode for the ENTIRE duration of your download. You must NOT be looking in another window or have a browser open DO NOT leave it to download in the background. DO NOT cmd+tab into another window. Doing any of these things WILL make it crash before it reaches 100% EVERY TIME (this is what those whose downloads fail at 40 to 50% or whatever might be doing).

    So:

    1) All graphics and screen resolution set to LOW or OFF.
    2) Game full screen, on the screen, for the entire time of the download

    I hope this works for you, but Telltale really should fix it properly.

    Mine was all set to the highest quality graphics in windowed mode during the download when I got it to work for me so I don't believe any of this matters. Looks like you've just got to get lucky. I'd advice to keep trying until the download looks like it's going faster than usual from the beginning, if it's going at the usual speed, restart and try again until it appears to be going faster then leave it and it should make it past the 99.50%

  • Obviously everyone who got it to work when they happened to be doing whatever at the time is picking up on all these specific things they did and expecting that they made a difference. It's all nonsense. I was brushing my teeth, having a crap whilst doing a handstand whilst my downloaded, you MUST do that or it won't work

    Bugger. I did this in the wrong order, and took a crap first before brushing my teeth! I'll have to wait until my next bowel movement to try and download it. :)
