Halo 5 Pre-order corrupt downloads

Post  Sedgendary on Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:47 pm

Halo 5: Guardians is a massive game in terms of its hard drive footprint, so it helps that people who pre-ordered a digital copy from the Xbox Games Store can download the title ahead of time. But developer 343 Industries warned recently that some pre-order customers may have unknowingly downloaded an "incorrect stub file" instead of the actual game.

The issue applies to some individuals who pre-ordered Halo 5 before Sept. 21 and who have disabled their Xbox One's "Instant On" power mode (aka the mode that supports Kinect's "Xbox on" voice command). Those who pre-ordered on or after Sept. 21 should be good to go. 343 Industries said the issue should only affect "a small number of players."

There's an easy way to check. Head to the Xbox One's "My games & apps" screen and sort your installed games by size. If the Halo 5 installation takes up more than 40 GB, you have the correct version of the game, and you'll be able to download further updates as they become available. If the installation is smaller than 40 GB, then you're one of the unlucky few with the placeholder stub file. In that case, you'll need to delete that file and re-download the game.

Holy shitballs, i REALLY hope that i am not one of those affected, i didnt pre order the digital version of the game through the xbox but i did order the ledgendary edition AGES ago.

Is that the definitive fix then, checking the install size?

Thank you very much for the heads up too mate, have some rep!

I also had a question about my install that you guys may be able to shed some light on

I have pre installed the game, its on my internal hard drive rather than my external but i cannot move it across to the external as it says i need to finish downloading it before i can do it, even though its already installed, is this because of the small amount of space left on my internal HDD or because there is a day 1 patch coming out?

Yeah this is basically only effecting people who downloaded the game really early when they had a temp file which doesn't seem to have been updated when they put the final version on the server.

For the install it is because the game gets a final file on release, once you get that you will be able to freely move. I have had this a few times when I got my HDD with the disc games which had updates that needed the disc to finalise it, I couldn't move them until that was done.

Yeah I downloaded this yesterday and I reckon I should be ok too. I am in the same boat has you Fatboy Geezer. Can't move the game back into the internal hard drive, which is annoying.
