Hello all, I am having problem with XCOM 2. I was able to play it for quite some time however, the launcher to play the game as well as the exe files found in the binaries folder does not seem to want to work anymore so I tried to do a verify files and repair from the Gog Galaxy 2.0 program. This however did not work as my download got stuck in a loop of downloading to 92% scanning files and then re-trying. Wash rinse and repeat. Does anyone have any other suggestions besides deleting all files and starting from scratch? Thanks in advance for any help.
ill copy over the other post to here, but if the varify is stuck at 92%, im not sure. but my fresh download that stoped up dateing at 92% at 70gigs\70gigs did finish.
"ok. mine got near the end, and failed, saying the gog server returned an unknown error.
i did a varyify\retry option, and it resumed, but soon the speed went to min, so i pused it and shut down gog galexy, then resterted and resumed, where it bumped up one %, and went till it got to 92%, at 70\70 gigs.......i left it for a little while (hell, i fired up the xbox), and some time later (30mins to 2 hrs?) it said it was installed. i think i might have pause\restarted galaxy a 2nd time in there somewhere, around 92%, dont remember.
it is now installed, and has 2 exe files, for xcom 2, and xcom 2 wotc. i loaded both up and played part of the 1st level to test and worked so far.
so apperntly they glicthed up with the math somewhere, either galexy, or its adding up the game size wrong...i did see that it started at 68 gigs, for a few moments when first starting it and it was checking the files...but then went to 70gb.
(apperntly tho wotc just adds new enimes\allys\systems to the game rather then a new story? i wasnt aware of that lol)
if you cant get it running, i did see that there is a way to configure your installation, so maybe you can try just doing xcom 2 base first, then adding in wotc, then the rest of the dlc.......at least you wont have to deal with all 70gigs at once that way so if it dosnt work, it wont take as long to find out.
anyway, hope this helps."
edit: i forget i also disabled vast antivirus. (left windows defender running)
