I am having no problems. Was there suppose to be an email saying that TOW was ready for download, or did I miss it some how?

Anyway, it should finished downloading in another 4 hours. Just in time for me to head off on an over night trip.

Clicked on the link in my purchase confirmation email.

It took me to a page where I was asked for the serial number associated with the purchase.

The download only took twenty minutes.

Nothing beats a cable modem. ;)

I never received any sort of pre-order offer to download up the que, although I expect that my download speed was so fast because the pre-orders didn't have to compete with others for bandwidth.

I successfully downloaded the full game about six hours ago. I believe many people have. Have you tried posting in the troubleshooting forum? There are a few helpful tips there that you may find useful.

My first attempt I didn't use a D/L manager. Was averaging about 140k/sec. Got to 1.2 GB then crapped out on me. Just stopped like it had the full file. THen when I tried to run setup.exe it told me it was corrupt and to get it again.

I d/lded GetRight and am on my 2nd attempt now, but only getting 44k/sec.

Oh well...maybe I'll have it running by 4/21. :(

I know Matt had made serverside changes so anyone who had problems with downloading, try again (with download manager)

set your mcafee of in your services.

then download the game and start your services again.

go to desktop right click on my computer then manage go to services then again services there look for mcafee and stop all those which have mcafee.

Used Download Accelerator. 360KB speed. Had to endure a four hour blackout during which the internet connection dropped unexpectedly at least five times. Still the download succeeded and the game installed perfectly.

Downloading was no problem - the probelsm are all afterwards trying to play the game!

First it takes several minutes to load a basic training scenario.

The view system is far, far worse than combat mission. The interface is not good - nothing actually works as it is supposed to.

I just given up on the interface after spending a very frustrating 30 minutes trying to get some troops to crew a gun (despite being given apparently explicit instructions) - completely non-intuitive and no fun, as it soes not work.

What a disappointment!

sandy, all you need to do is click on the units and click on the gun. No brain science. The excessive load time however points at some other problem with your settings.

Hi Martin

Thanks for your quick reply

Maybe I'm stupid - but I kept trying what you suggested again and again

I could not get the gun to unhitch, or do anything

And I could not get any troops to crew it - no matter what I did.

The load time I could live with if I enjoyed the game...

And why on earth did you not use the same viewing system as combat mission??

No interface that lets an experienced gamer keep trying for 30 minutes and fail can be said to be intuitive

(After reading the instructions!)

I could not proceed further in the tutorial as a result of this

Because we didn't program this game, sandy.

Ah, you meant unhitch. Click on the gun or the vehicle and choose the command button showing a hook.

Once you did that, select a soldier and move the cursor over the gun. The cursor changes to a "door", meaning that when you now right click the soldier will man the gun.

Check out the Walkthrough thread. It links to a walkthrough of the first four tutorial missions on Tweaktown gamer.
