Hi there.

Just got the game and installed it. When I run the game and try to log into my GFWL profile it says it has an update for this game and needs to apply it. I click ok, the download bar gets to about 95% and then it just sits there. I've tried at least 10 times now and the same thing keeps happening. I've tried looking for a manual patch but can't find any.

Anyone know why this is the case?

PC stats: AMD Phenom II 550, 4GB DDR3 ram, plenty of hard drive space.

Might be that I'm not waiting long enough for the patch to download? How big is it? Why is there not a proper progress bat showing exactly how many bytes of X have been downloaded?

The download is 270MB and unfortunately MS just zips to end and doesnt give a progress bar.. Depending on how fast your connection is it will take a while.. When its finished it will quit out the game and install the patch

so just wait and let it take however long it has to take? at 2mbit connection this should take only like 15 mins for 200 megs. half hour tops.
