Download suck on 50.916 Files..

First, pardon my English.

I wanted to play Guild Wars 2 again after years and I had to install it, of course.
but the launcher starts to download nothing after 50.000 files for 3MB and then it drops down to 0kb/s I have tried some things, like -assetsrv or IPv6

I've been stuck on ''remaining files 50,916'' for hours

I'm trying to install it on a 2 hard drive, SSD.

  • Which -assetsrv have you tried? Have you followed the latest instructions given in the other threads on the topic?

  • Had the same issue, what helped was this thread:
    he updated it, but i missed it and found it a page later so to make it clear I copied the important thing. If it wasn't that thing check the thread there were many people who came up with many ideas

    I have fixed it!
    For future reference, it's very simple; here's how(it was 1 of 2 things):
    If you're on Windows 10 go to Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center. On the left-hand side, click "Change adapter settings". This will open a new window of various connections. Right click the connection you are using and click on Properties, you'll be under the Networking tab in the next box that opens. UNCHECK QoS Packet Scheduler and make sure IPv6 is checked. You're done. For good measure, make sure you are using the Google DNS addresses.

  • im having the same issue! just tried this now so hopefully it works!!

  • Just got a sparkly new Alienware machine and was SO excited about playing GW2. And like so many others, am stuck.

    For me it's at around 254,660 files still to go. Or 25gb of download in. Every time it stalls here. Insanely maddening. I had unchecked QoS Packet Scheduler and made sure IPv6 was checked this time - so not that (for me)

    There's currently a problem with some of the patch servers. Use the main server by launching with:

    -assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com

    (only use this for as long as it takes to get past where it's stuck)

    Thanks for the suggestion - changed the launcher path to "D:\Guild Wars 2\Gw2-64.exe" -assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com

    That cleared the blockage. Have now switched back to original path and all looks good.

  • Sorry for not answering the thread, I just didn't feel like doing it because I think something like this should just work. Got it fixed, downloaded it from the US server, looks like something is broken on the EU server.

    Nope, you just had to use the Search function of this forum to find the solution: :)

  • Just wanted to add that this fix has helped me. I let it download about 500mb on the "D:\Guild Wars 2\Gw2-64.exe" -assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com then switched it back to original path. It's now downloading perfectly. Thanks guys

    I was stuck at ~50k FILES REMAINING. I tried this (-assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com) then gave up, and found this: -assetsrv 54.84.216.160, in another forum entry. This seemed to limit my download speed to ~500KB/SEC, and I was doubting it's effectiveness. But, after 5-10 minutes i suddenly saw that the 'FILES REMAINING' started dropping again. Then I closed the download, and removed the "-assetsrv 54.84.216.160", and now it seems to be downloading the remaining 40k files just as well as it did the first 90% of the total download.

    Not saying that "-assetsrv origincdn.101.arenanetworks.com" wont work, but the other one somehow worked for me. I'm an EU player. I don't know much about how this whole issue works, but just wanted to add to the possible solutions. Only missing ~30k files atm.
