Were players not getting banned for posting links to unofficial copies of the game files for download?

Hi everyone, I wanted to pass along this message from one of our developers:

Many of you have expressed concern that when performing a Repair the entire game is downloaded again. While the Launcher messaging does seem to indicate this, that’s not actually what is going on.

When the Launcher detects a corrupted file, it will attempt to restore that file from Version 1. In the Launcher it will appear that, for example, all of Main Assets 1 (12GB) is being downloaded, but in actuality, only the patch files which contain the corrupted file are being downloaded. Typically, this is a single patch file. Now, that said, those files can be very large (up to 2GB), but unless a large number of files are corrupted it will not download the entire 12GB (or in the case of English/French/German Assets 1, 7GB).

For those of you who are experiencing repeated corruption of files and are not having success with Repair, we urge you to try the Launcher Troubleshooting Guide. We’ve discovered new issues (CAS Latency and memory voltage settings) that when corrected have solved the corruption issue for several users. We recognize that this continues to be a vexing issue for some of you and we are continuing to investigate, but as of yet no common thread discovered. We will report any verifiable fixes to the forums.

Thank you

When I tried to log in this morning I had this same problem. It downloaded patch and gave me an error message about corruption or something. I clicked on repair and then it started the 12GB or whatever repair/install. Yeah, ridiculous.

So, I went into processes and killed the launcher and tried again and it downloaded the patch just fine that time and let me into the game. I'd recommend trying that instead of sitting through the repair.

According to my router my computer's NIC has had 89.01 GB of data transferred from the Internet zone since first attempting to patch yesteday. I've tried patching 6 times and watched a few hours of non-HD netflix. I monitored similar bandwidth consumption during the beta weekend where I re downloaded about 10 times, and never managed to click play.

So..?

Trust me it's on your end Bioware.

My system runs flawlessly and was running as such until this morning when you released the new patch. I installed it, game crashed on char select screen and now it's stuck trying to reinstall the entire game over and over again.

Fix your mess and stop blaming peoples systems.
