1.29 download times out.[SOLVED]

Post by winkus on Thu 29 Dec 2011, 05:00

Anyone else having an issue downloading 1.29? A couple of days ago I only had my original copy of the base game and ambitions installed and the launcher still wouldn't download the new 1.29 patch. It seems to be timing out before it downloads completely. Now I've downloaded and installed generations to my own original game and the launcher is doing the same thing.

I found a site to download it manually from, hoping it will work. I'm thinking it may have something to do with the ridiculously massive size of the patch.

Hello,
I'm on PC but that happens all the time. I get some kind of error during downloading or installing patches for the Sims, but it always works if I use a manual patch.
A lot of users are having the same issue.
I hope patching manually will work for you!

Hi there,

Lol, you think 600MB for an update is much? Then I recommend you do not install Battlefield 3; its updates are ± 2GB.
