yeah, I got that. I know you meant they recently switched to a bigger file size, instead of the smaller one they had been using before.
Conrad57: Hi! I hope my phrasing didn't mislead you a little. When i said they "just wrapped new downloads into...", I meant "just" in the sense of timing, such as, "just recently wrapped..." Also, my later comment was "Still, LOTS of downloading. Hey, if the game is running well, why bother?"
I was just... ranting against GOG for doing that. my connection is unstable enough to appreciate what steam does. say, downloading a FEW Mb is way better than having to redownload one big 1.5 Gb file, just because they added a translation. well, just let me download the translation file (which should take only a few Mb), and not the whole package. say: diffs.
I mean, I'm not lying when I say simcity4 (~1Gb) took two days to download(1).... I don't really want to redownload the whole witcher2, thanks.
(1) actually that was because the connection kept resetting, the download manager stalled, I had to close it and open it again, and then it was on chunk 63 again. it was a bit painful, to be honest.
