I just installed the five-CD game, and now it seems to be downloading MORE stuff, telling me: "Updating Half-Life 2: Ready to play in approximately: 130 minutes 54 seconds."
(it's coming in VERY slowly, sometimes it'll jump up to 131 minutes)
is this normal?? i'm sure the game is great, but i'm not happy about this wait. (or apparent problem)
If you're on a 56K connection it will take a long time. It took me about 90 minutes to install the game because I had to download a heap of stuff (even though I bought the retail version ...). 131 minutes sounds like a lot, but yes, there will be a wait.
