Fallout: NV restarts download at 80%

So i recently bought Fallout New Vegas, since i had the game before and loved it. Everything was going fine, download was a bit slow but I could thank my Internet provider for that. Anyway at about 80% it simply restarted the download; no error message or pop up occurred, it simply restarted. I thought it might have been corrupted or something so I restarted my xbox, it happened again. Then i went to the storage and deleted the new vegas file, I tried again and once again... Nothing.I then downloaded 3 add-ons for fallout and they all went flawlessly! If anyone has any idea how to fix it I would love to hear it.

Thanks

I would suggest clearing your cache as well as deleting the market place system data file, in case that is holding up the download from completing.


support.xbox.com/.../download-xbox-live-content


Both of which can be found there if you need to know how to do them.


Secondly, while I know the other downloads have completed, they are also smaller in size, I would recommend going wired if you are not already, just to download. I would also suggest making sure you have the correct ports open in your router to ensure live has the best possible connection. Doing so may help prevent download failures from occurring.


support.xbox.com/.../network-ports-used-xbox-live


Above is the link to the required ports as well as how to do port forwarding for specific routers, if you are unfamiliar with how to do it.


Let us know if the above works. :)

you're right, i didn't think it through when i clicked the region change, that was my mistake.

however, downloading demos still works, and the game i bought still shows up, so i can click the redownload button. it's the only game i ever bought online, so i can't test it with anything else.

but there's definitely a bug in the marketplace system, just aborting the download and starting over without any message is not acceptable. just think about how much of your download volume you burn through if you leave the download unattended overnight ;)

as there's no message whatsoever, i'd really like to hear from the OP whether he messed with the region settings, so we can rule out / confirm this as the cause.

I have the same problem, but with a different game though. Do you happen to live in a different country than you set in your Xbox / Live account? Or have you changed your region recently? It might be the cause of the problem, but I didn't manage to fix it myself either. Or get a decent answer from the Microsoft support for that matter...

Thanks for answering elquietone, unfortunately none of this worked. I messed around with the router a lot but still it hasn't worked. I think i might get an 8 gb flash drive and try to download on there, if it works ill then move it to the hard drive, i'll let you know if this works

demos and what not may still work

again it depends on the DLC

region locks only apply to certain titles

mostly AAA titles

if your PHYSICAL region doesn;'t match your actual region it can cause problems with region locked DLC

this is why we always suggest those two match

now if you purchased the game while in the region but then used the migration tool

the content may not be available in that region

 

this is why there is region locks

it does not apply to all DLC

there is no definite list if it is a AAA title it is most likely region locked edue to different content laws

 

the migration tool is meant for people to move  not temporary moves

 

nor is it meant to gain access to dlc your not supposed to have

 

that is the answer

 

when creating an account you have to use your ACTUAL region and if you migrate you forfeit access to some DLC

this is why we suggest you create another account if it is a temporary move
