-This happens on files over 1Gb in size. it appears a “network TCP reset” is the cause of the download progress resetting to 0%
-This is related to QoS settings.
-This is all due to a poorly coded launcher which resets the download instead of continuing from where it left off it it experienced a completely standard network tcp reset.
-This makes it impossible to download the game for people with certain brands of routers (and has been recorded to happen worldwide so it’s not just one niche brand)
-This literally doesn’t happen with any other downloading program, so the problem is with the launcher.
And no, this isn’t a hardware issue. It’s a problem with the faulty launcher, the software. Because this doesn’t happen with any other programs. It’s an under sight from the developers. One which they failed to notice several months after release, probably because they don’t read these forums, only the moderators do.
It simply resets itself to 0% after a couple hours of re-downloading. This is absolutely ridiculous. How can it fail at such a simple task. Deleting every MSF file in my PC and re-downloading from scratch didn’t fix it either so that’s another day gone to waste.
Edit: It’s been 17 days now. Still having the same problem. Only solution is to have a friend from the USA pass you the files. Shame we have to do it this way because Asobo doesn’t care about the smaller countries, even pirates got a better download than this ■■■■■■ launcher.
Edit: A possible solution is to use netlimiter to limit your download speed, or to play with your QoS settings in your router. But some routers do not provide you those options, so it does not work for me.
The cause seems to be related to certain router models. The download is reset every time the is a “network TCP reset” apparently, which can be caused by some settings on some routers, but you may not even have the choice to change them. All that can be done is either buy a new router or wait months for Asobo to even notice there’s a problem.
