Why do PTE updates take so long to download? I mean really, it seems to take half an hour to an hour, and usually my computer takes that long to download several gigabytes of data, so what's going on? Im pretty sure PTE updates arent that large.

The PTE always performs a complete reinstall, when "updating". As soon as it finished, I can tell you the download size Wink

The PTE is always a full download, where as the main game can just patch in the changed files.

probably to make sure you have exactly the right files because if you don't it would not be a proper test.

Was it really worth reviving a 2 month old topic to post that?
