View Full Version : Cannot download game!!!
12/11/2006, 06:36 pm
I have been trying to download this freaking purchased game (Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine) since 12/10 (it's 12/11 now). The connection will not go any faster than 25 kbps (even though I have a DSL connection. I might as well be using an old 56k or something!).
I've been letting it run for over 24 hours now. I'm finally at about 85% and now I am getting errors when attempting to finish (see below image):
Yes, I have tried completely disabling my firewalls.
Yes, I obviously have an Internet connection (I'm sending this, aren't I?).
Yes, I am throughly fed up.
I can provide my order # upon request.
If this can't get resolved soon I'll need a refund.

Sorry to hear it's been so slow. :(
The good news is that our games use a download manager that keeps track of how much you've already downloaded. After getting that error message, if you double-click the "Download Al Emmo Now" shortcut (or whatever it's called) on your desktop, the download should resume from the point where it dropped off. Please give that a try. I've gotten that error sometimes downloading games from inside our office -- not sure why, since it's not a firewall problem, but I've always been able to resume the download and it picks up where it left off.
If you're still having trouble, let me know and I can burn the setup file to a CD and drop it in the mail for you.
Sorry you're having trouble, scollege! Someone will likely be able to provide you with a direct download URL (or better solution) tomorrow when they get to work (its 9:30 in the evening right now in California, so nobody's at the office at the moment).
edit: I guess Emily beat me to the punch with a real suggestion. Awesome. (and scary)

Sorry to hear it. :( It's a big file, so I understand why some people would have trouble downloading it.
We can refund your order. Send an email with your order number to email@example.com and we'll take care of it.
In future we hope to offer a smaller download for this game, so maybe you can try again then. :)
