Install?

Anyone get an install prompt? I downloaded the game and the patch when they went up. 12:01 hits and it’s giving me an install prompt. 21 minutes layers I’m just now at 29%. I have over 160 games across my drives and I’ve never seen this happen before.

Same here. Had the correct file size and still got a 55gb update. Never buying another Halo game again.

My installation is stuck at 100%…

Try hard reset?

I’m done with Halo. Seriously. Now I can’t play until tomorrow after a cleared my whole schedule tonight. Truly another let down. 343 is incompetent.

I took vacation time for this haha, pretty bummed right now just trying to stay as patient as I can. Gonna hop on some MCC in the mean time.

I’m at less than 10% on the download in an hour, suggestions?

Word 55 gig update for me as well after assuring that it was downloaded before hand.

Not even the 9 gig update people are complaining about that they thought they updated already literally 55 gig update that goes so slow…

I have 300 down and 50 up and after 30 minz its still at 3 percent…

A wee bit extreme there, don’t you think?

I’m at 43% in about 15 minutes. Not sure if I’m only downloading the 9 gig update right now or what. How’s your internet speed?

No, its not dude. I’ve played Halo from day one. And every game 343 has released has been a nightmare. I cleared all day for this. And it doesn’t work. 55gb will take all night. Sure I’ll play the game and hopefully enjoy but I’m sick of this crap. They continually do this.

I’m stuck at 100% as well so let me know if you figure something out.

Downloading preorder, put in the code at a 11pm est, it’s 1230 est and I’m at 10%… Am I the only one going this slow?

Completely unacceptable…

35 min in and only at 7%. Pretty -Yoinking!- pissed

I’m dead serious. Like I knew this would happen almost. Followed all the damn instructions, etc. And I still can’t play it at launch. I mean I wouldn’t have even preordered if I knew this would be the case, but they made it seem like it would be all worked out. For me its a matter of principle and I’m done. We all just throw money at them and they still can’t launch a game properly. I don’t any other game by any other developer with these issues, and they have the full might of Microsoft.

Has anyone confirmed that this is the full install… again? Or is it just the 9GB update? My bandwidth cap can’t handle over 100GBs, I’m not paying hundreds of dollars just to play halo 5

I’m glad I’m not the only one with this issue. Preloaded the game like three weeks ago, downloaded the update which bumped the file size to 54.8 GB which is what 343i said it should have been, so I thought I was good to go for launch. But no, I try launching the game and BAM, 55 GB update. I’ve been sitting here for 40 minutes and the download is only at 6%.

Is it really THAT difficult to make sure things work from the get-go? God, I’ve been giddy all day waiting for launch and then this happens. I’m more than a little annoyed.

Its mind boggling that they could let this happen after MCC. I mean they should have experimented with every conceivable scenario. And this seems pretty common right now so its not just super rare exceptions.
