[steam] download stopping before complete

Question

Something with the various free DLCs seems to have gone wrong.  Deadfire was preloaded, but now shows 99%, but if I go to download status, no data is being transferred.  Just seems to be stuck at 99%, so no way to play the game.  Do I disable all the free DLC bits?

This is resolved, for me at least.

 

The issue was with steam it appeared getting stuck at some point during the unpacking. After working with steam support this is what fixed the issue if anyone else suffers like I have.

 

 

"Fortunately, there's a way to bypass this: we can delete the remaining pre-load data. you'll need to open up file explorer and navigate to your Steamapps folder. From here, delete the folder called "depotcache". This will ensure that all the remaining pre-load data is cleared. Once you've deleted it, Steam should re-download the data from our servers instead of trying to extract them from something that clearly does not want to reveal its secrets."

 

 

Hope it helps!

It's decompiling the pre-load.

The time is pretty crazy though, yeah.

I preloaded the Game, on steam, however upon release, the download was stuck at 90%. So then I uninstalled the game, cleared Download Cache, and switched download servers. I then downloaded it, it is now again stuck at 90%, what in the hell gives.

I had this issue, and spent the last few hours trying to solve it. Finally got it to work:

I uninstalled (not sure if you have to uninstall but I did anyways), then went  -> Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folders -> Right click on folder -> Repair Folder to repair the library folders.

After repairing and restarting Steam, the game started downloading again and fully completed with no issues. Hopefully that helps someone else as I was getting really frustrated there for awhile!

How do you clear your download cache?  I'm trying to reinstall it after uninstalling it (Steam kept on starting over once it got to 100%).  Now it is stuck on discovering existing files...

Same issue mine is not working, stuck at 90% or 18.7 GB, tried clearing cache, restarting steam, verifying files, nothing working.  So disappointing.

Same issue here. Tried restarting everything, clearing all caches, repairing, etc. No good. This is frustrating and hard to tell if its a Steam problem or something weird about the file download.

for some reason the steam version of the game doesnt want to complete its download. i get to 16.9 of 18.8 Gigs and it freezes.  ive tried switching steam servers ,as well as adding another game to the queue..

 

when i add another game, that one starts downloading fine.. however, when i go back to deadfire.. it never resumes downloading.  i've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game.  same issue.  it always gets stuck at 16.9 Gigs.

 

thoughts?

a lot of us had that happen, it was steam being slow to unpack the pre-load data

 

took about 30-40 minutes for me, no downloading, just disk usage

 

after that, the Day 1 patch was downloaded


All Stop. On Screen.

Seem to be stuck with this as well. Been stuck at 16.9 for countless hours at this point with steam claiming no disk activity.

 

Tried getting rid of the preload and re downloading, but hit the same issue. Do I simply need to stick it out at this point, and hope it does.. whatever it's doing?

Already waited all of last evening and this morning, but guess I can continue waiting for now. Hopefully it does something before it reaches the 12 hours mark!
