Walking Dead iOS Ep2 downloads, doesn't install
I'm trying to install Ep2 of Walking Dead on my iPad 2. I've had several attempts to download that fail partway through with the "Connection lost" message and force me to start over.
More troublesome, I've reached 100% downloaded three times now, and after it hits 100%, I get the same error message (Connection lost while downloading data. Please ensure that you have a working internet connection and re-attempt the download.) and the episode doesn't install, and the entire download is lost.
I've tried resetting my device with a full power-down, but I still get the same error after fully downloading the episode. Is there anything else I can try besides uninstalling the game and losing my episode 1 save?
I've noticed that in Settings/General/Usage on my iPad, the Documents and Data for the game is around 508 MB, while the game itself is 360 MB. I'm assuming this is largely the downloaded data, as I wouldn't expect my single saved game to be larger than the game itself. This data size varies after each failed download attempt. Is there a way to delete the data without uninstalling the game?
I'm currently trying on my iPhone 4S to see if I get the same issue. I've installed the game, and am currently downloading episode 2 (very slowly), and so far the download has failed twice. after a fresh install of the game, the Doc and Data size was 8 KB. Now, after failing at 11% downloaded, I have 71.6 MB of data associated with the game.
This is getting very frustrating, and I'm worried I'm filling up my devices with garbage data that won't go away.
For a company that deals primarily in downloadable games, I'm shocked at how poorly this game handles its downloads. I don't think I've used another product that had to restart rather than resume a download since the 90's!
Update: 3rd failed download on iPhone, now showing 32 MB of data for the game. At least the download seems to be overwriting itself rather than accumulating more and more data.
