Default Re: Sin stays at 50% downloaded on Steam - please

I've been having this problem too. I bought the game this morning (fully preloaded), and it's bee sat on 50% for the last 3 hours or so. It validates OK (so far as I can tell), but won't download whatever it is it needs. I'm on 10am GMT here... I figure its around midnight/1am local time for the server machines, and I would assume that this is a fairly quiet time. Certianly, I would consider this time to be roughly a global off-peak.. if there is such a thing [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm on-side with the view that the download servers are simply full, and steam can't get a connection to get hold of the download. I'm just wondering if theres anything I can do to help? Also, is my download in an orderly queue? Because presumably, I lose my queue position each time I restart steam [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Any tips/advice will be appriciated... but in the meantime I'll just be patient and wait for it to connect.
