I have tried installing L4D and L4D2 on my Xbox (it's a slim model) but neither gives me the option to install. Anyone know what the issue might be?


How long have you waited before giving up on it? I know the dash seems to have an issue with getting the install option to show up right away. One thing I've resorted to was hitting Y once the disc's image appears then perusing through the achievement pane for a while. After a minute or so I go back and the Install Game option shows up.

Sorry, I primarily game on my PS3 these days as I no longer have XBL. I PM'd dumlaox and suggested keeping the current thread since it's essentially an archive for all of the entries, and just keep the Wiki updated. That said, the only problem I see with a new thread is only the thread creator can edit posts 2 and 3 should we try to break the list up...

First things first, I'm going to do a local copy of the first post as it stands right now. Always good to have the backup in case things go wrong or gets lost. Next, I'm going to try and slowly add in content from the Wiki to the original, one game at a time, to really push the limit of what we can post before we get stopped. Until then, I vote for the Wiki to be the main place for this. However, if the community feels differently, I'll try to get a new thread set up for all of this.

After doing some edits I got the first post pretty much up to date with the Wiki as it stands now. Not sure how long this'll last but so far, so good. I'm going to spend a good chunk of today trying to find out more info on some games so don't be surprised to see both Wiki and 1st post change again after a few hours.

I was thinking...if we remove the '...' between titles and sizes, we could free up about 20,000 characters. That should help out quite a bit.

I do like the uniformity it gives, though. Makes for a clean looking list. Still in the process of getting new game sizes and info so I'll take a look into doing something about it later tonight.

31 games either just got added or had their sizes and performance changed on the list. Looking at my collection I still have over 40 more to go. It's going to be a while.

After thinking about it for a bit, I think getting rid of the ellipses would be the best thing to do once we hit the limit again. I'll take a snapshot of the post as it stands now before attempting to make the changes.

Syn.. Can I work with you on this? Like Co-Operate this project? Because I always am telling my friends what a big difference it is to have certain games installed to your HDD.

I have an Idea though..

We have our own Wikipedia page on Cheap Ass Gamers.. at http://wiki.cheapassgamer.com/

So why not make the wiki thread on CAG's wikipedia? :D

We could actually do that...and then leave this thread JUST for reporting sizes and performance. Dumlaox is also my partner in crime. We owe a lot to him for the list in it's current capacity :)

Just for clarification, does this mean that the actual list itself would be the current Wiki page from now on? Should we still bother with the current list on post one, then, or will that get cleared out soon?

Personally, I'd say just use the Wiki...but the first post is open to everyone so you guys can choose :)

on Battlefield 3 install the single player disc but not the multiplayer disc. the game has trouble streaming both the HD install and a full game install from the hard disc. textures will either fail to load or load extremely slow if everything is installed.

the source is the fact that i as well as many others have done tests using every possible install procedure and only the single player disc loads all textures correctly when installed.

these are our findings

1. Full game install - patch - HD content...some textures fail to load or they never load. also some times when you install in this order the HD content will fail on the first install attempt and it will have to be restarted. that could be the issue here.

2. Patch - HD content - disc 1...textures will load most of the time but some are very very slow.

3. Patch - HD content only...textures can be seen loading quickly at the beginning of a round and occasionally during a match but much better than the other options. i believe the game is having issues streaming all the content from the disc drive. hope some of you will find this helpful.

REMEMBER TO CLEAR CACHE BEFORE TRYING THESE DIFFERENT OPTIONS>

I just haven't noticed this before. I can't find anything about either when doing a search either.. Maybe it's because I have a 7200rpm HDD in my 360 instead of the standard 5400rpm HDD.

I'm still tempted to try this and see how it comes out. *EDIT* I'm trying it out now.

I didn't seem to notice any huge differences between the different installs.

This is the one I decided to stick with: 2. Patch - HD content - disc 1...textures will load most of the time but some are very very slow.

What about the time it takes to load into a map? Is that improved at all?

this issue is being discussed on the Dice forums right now...there is in fact a problem with streaming content from the installed game and the HD content together. option 3 is confirmed best option

Since there seems to be an issue with the Wiki right now, I'll post these here as a reminder to myself on what to add:

Rango -2.5GB - BLUE
Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine - 2.7GB - WHITE
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 - 7.6GB

I installed my Skyrim disc straight away yesterday and it was loading fine, not really any problems. I read online about not installing so I deleted it now my game loads much slower and theres lag on the menus..? I might just re install it to be honest.
