Launcher re-downloads entire installer on resuming installation
I'm an early adopter and installing UE 4.11 preview upgrades whenever it comes out. Today I made the mistake of typing into a browser window while the UE upgrade were installing in the background. Suddenly a confirmation dialog popped up and I managed to cancel it instantly with one of my keypresses.
We would like to ask for one simple thing here:
Please do not re-download the 1.5GB installer when the user clicks on Resume. It is supposed to continue the installation. Ideally it should just re-launch that very last installer the poor user managed to cancel. For me it was not a big deal on a 100Mbps connection, but many people are not that lucky to have this luxury.
Please visit http://help.epicgames.com/ and fill out the contact form to submit your feature request for the launcher. Thanks!
