Slow fresh MoP install using game dvds
I started installing this at 11am-12pm today,
it is 4:30pm now.. I've only put disk one in.. and its 69.5%..
I've been looking for answers as to why it is so slow, I'm not getting much.
It's been two years, randomly decide to reinstall and see what's up.
I installed the game client. Up to Cata (as I didn't yet have MoP), Took 18 hours.
I moved the "World of warcraft" Icon to my desktop...it made new folders. Got freaked, moved them back.
Long story short. I corrupted data. I tried everything battle.net said. Nothing worked.
I decided I would just go get mists and see what happens.
I deleted everything related to WoW. Everything in "Users" Everything in Preferences, everything in the trash was emptied.
Loading discs, I get to 0.4% And then I get this error:
This application has encountered a critical error:
ERROR #1 (0x13370001) Fatal Exception
Exception: short exception
EXC_BAD_ACCESS KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE 0000000 0000000
Crashed Thread: 0x00009287
Whaaaaat the actual hell.
I've had no luck. No luck in my attempts at troubleshooting with Blizz/battle.net support. No luck at anything regarding this install.
It should not be this difficult.
Today, however, I got my custom built brand new tower up and running and now that ive finally installed all the previous expansion (fresh install), i am now still experiencing the same exact issue on a overly capable, up-to-date rig.
Theres obviously no fix but are there any actual answers as to why this ocurs? Ive read once it gets passed 0.3% itll ask for disc 2 and zoom by, but im currently at 0.9% and still creeping by...
2010ish 13" Macbook pro. Fresh install. I've ran Cata before on this with no issues.
I mean, if it will eventually work, I'm okay with that. What I'm not okay with is the misinformation of numbers during the installation. Before digging through google I had all but given up because it was so off on numbers.
When I tried downloading straight from the disk, it seemed to have halted at 16.8%. No prompt ever popped for a disk change. I went outside and snowblowed my driveway, went to the nearby convenient store, and went to a dinor 8 miles from my home to pick up a food order. THE PERCENTAGE DID NOT CHANGE. I seriously believe the disks are poorly formatted.
btw...download is currently at 7.8%. 19GB remaining. I sure hope it's not just patch notes.
This is lousy as it gives you no info on what is actually happening. I just get to watch screen shots of random MOP bunnies and wildlife scenery.
Blizzard, how about a little info on this download page like, "don't fret valued customer....your download will be done soon.....in about 34 hours....hang in there and remember....your subscription fee is paying for your time spent NOT playing the game!"
Ok. As soon as I submit this my download goes to 1.1% and it asks for disc 2. I guess complaining does help you out in life sometimes. I gotta remember to tell my mother that someday.....
