View Full Version : Do we really have to download the whole demo again to get the next-gen content?

The file size for the demo increased on the official site, I'm guessing it now has the next gen content. I thought there was going to be a patch for people who have the demo already.

It cut out on me at 95%. :mad: I'm not going to even bother with this game anymore, I just wanted to see if they actually made the game look somewhat decent in next gen.

Where's the PROMISED demo update, I've only just finished downloading the original demo, and you want me to download this newer version, because, it seems, you've gone against your word about patching the original?
Maybe I'll just buy a different game then. Great way to heal the TR franchise.

I just downloaded whichever one is up on the demo site right now and sadly I still cannot toggle next generation content on. My computer meets the system specs.

I'm thinking it's just a fluke :(

I know 475 MB, but havent played it though www.ausgamers.com/files/details/html/21680

OR if it's the new verson. The fastest download depends upon the tranfer rate, which relies on the speed of your connection. My connection speed in maximum at 128kb/s, but the transfer rate is slow at 15kb/s, and going down. *sad*

If that was what you asked..

So, has anyone downloaded this, if in fact it adds anything? And if so, what is the difference?

you people really think they thought adding 20 MB to the original demo was a "installer size issue"? Get a grip, the patch will probably be like 150-200 MB.

um..I didn't say it'd be an issue for me:confused:

I meant people at eidos. That's what the readme file says: "For installer size reasons on this demo version, the ‘Next Generation’ graphics option has been de-activated"
