    Exclamation RIFT Patcher repeating download issues

    I am trying to download the RIFT Patch (the 8GB file) in chunks. I allowed it to download several GBs last night and then this morning. I started it back up this evening after the actual patcher needing a update itself and sadly i have to start at the very beginning. I am on a very low connection in a hotel and wish to start tomorrow evening for headstart and if my patcher does not remember where I last left off I fear i wont be able to sit down for 10hrs and let it full download any given time. Any guidance to this would be great!

    Seems like anyone who cancels the download has this problem. They updated the patcher today but didn't change the version of the game client to coincide.

    Seems the new patcher makes a new save folder. all the data you downloaded befor is still there on the HD, you just need to copy the bigger sized files for the downloads to where the smaller new one you started is at then restart the patcher and you wont have to download everything again

    Default I had the same problem

    I encountered a similar problem which was easily fixed by going into the 'download' folder in the game files. The downloader (for some reason) is making a new folder for a new download instead of starting where the last one left off. All you need to do is copy the Assets folder from the oldest 'STABLE' folder into the latest one. Be sure to delete the assets folder from the newest 'STABLE' folder before copying the previously downloaded data in though. This worked perfectly for me.

    So i did what you all said. I restarted my DL, only it doesnt make a new file, so i moved it. Restarted again, it makes the new folder. I deleted assets and put my other<5.2g> one in, it still says i need 8g to DL. How do i get it to recognize it ?

    I even tried the recover option which does a file check, no help

    I moved the assets folder to the root directory and hit recovery. It saved about 4 gigs of what I had, may save you some time downloading. The problem is that the patcher version and the game version don't match. Once the game patches it moves the assets to root anyway, so by doing this it should just patch what you need.
