It's stuck at 25% for me.... any ideas what to do...

For the most part all you can do is be patient, but refraining from downloading any big files (or anything at all) can only help you out.

I'm wondering if maybe the MS servers are overloaded and that is why I'm not getting the Crackdown update here.

Wow this is gonna be an even bigger fiasco if people end up taking 6 hours to download this thing.

Still no game update here. Trying to be patient.

Did you try and clear the cache on your 360? That should fix it if you haven't.

Well the only thing I'm downloading is the H3 Beta...

It's hard to be patient as I can't exactly stay up forever... If there's no increase in the download times by 11:05pm EST for example, I'll just call it a day and wait for tomorrow to come.

EDIT: 30% percent...that's better

We realize this has been a pain for many and an inconvenience at the very least. Given the circumstances, we've decided to extend the duration of the Halo 3 Beta from June 6th to June 10th at 11:59 PM PDT. So, you lost almost a full day of play today but to make up for it we're tacking on four more days (and a weekend at that).

I think this was beyond the call of duty for Bungie. Very cool. Despite what this thread has become, I think they are quite good to their fans.

I just hit a road block, stoped me dead at 76%. JP, I would clear the cashe and restart your 360, it's atleast worth a shot.

So how is everyone doing on the download? It's at 70% for me... and still going strong.... I thought the beta would be much higher than 911.18MB... that's good for everyone

This is agonizing. Another fifteen minutes and only a meager 20%. With a 12MB pipe, too! WTF.

Well you know...my usual luck.

Something is going on, I just read a post by someone who said that they were able to DL the beta but their brother in the same house hadn't been able to yet.

Forget it. I'll get on later tonight and try.

Leave no man behind! I shall do what I can to see if I can find a solution to the problem.

Edit: 'Cuse, I hate you, my 360 almost frozen for like 3 miniutes when you signed on, I was about to restart. :dry:

I'm sure you guys will anyway, but when your download finishes and you're actually able to load into H3 make sure you post here real quick so we know to count you in on having it. I don't want anyone's feeling to get hurt, but the parties are limited to 12, and that's if you just want to play BTB training over and over again on the same map Valhalla. We'll probably do parties of 8 for now, especially since the new playlists aren't even up yet and they're still the same ones they've been for a week and a half. That said, many of the newer members probably won't get invited into a party full of clan members. It's definitely not that we don't want to play with you because we do, it's just that there's too many people here who've known each other a long time and are close. We always give priority to clan members, even then we won't fit all of us in one party. I'm guessing there'll be two parties of clan members tonight, the newer members should contact each other and exchange gamertags so you guys can play with each other. As soon as there's room in one of our parties, we'll invite some of you.

Push the guide button, and then select download again. Then what does it say? :thumbsup:
