    Default OFFICIAL: "I cant download map packs" Thread! [UPDATE]: YES WE CAN! Oops! now we cant

    ----A N O T H E R U P D A T E-------

    Well guys... the joy didnt last. It seems they only let it pass the first day. Or they forgot to put the region lock and then put it again.... either way, something happened and it looks like now the maps cannot be downloaded!

    Remember this is not EPIC's fault. It's a Microsoft Gaming Studios decision.

    For all of you who didnt get a chance to download them, this thread is yours to use. Keep posting and voicing out your anger on this issue. Remember to leave me the country in which you live in so i can keep updating the list.

    Sorry!




    ---------- U P D A T E -----------

    YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!

    The maps are now available for download to all Xbox Live regions as for Non-Live regions. No word on Germany and Japan (please let us know here). Finally the Non-LIVE regions gamers are treated with the same respect as everyone.

    Thanks EPIC! especially Mark and Rod... thank you both for paying attention and replying my emails. Thank you both for all your efforts in convincing the guys over at MGS. Thank you for caring about our community. You guys rock!! let's hope we never encounter this problem again in future games and DLC so all of us continue to support GEARS!!

    And... thanks to all of you for posting and keeping this thread alive. I've been on this fight since GoW1 and never got as much support and results as we did now. WE MADE OUR VOICES HEARD!!

    Now... everybody... go download the maps! and FINALLY enjoy them!!

    Thanks...

    Hello:

    I live in the Dominican Republic. No restrictions or laws here on gaming whatsoever. I downloaded Golden lancer, Flashback and Combustible map packs without any trouble at all.

Why is this happening?

In terms of Rifles, GoWJ is the least exciting to be a Rifle-user on. People die in seconds and before you know it, you're moving onto the next person in line. Its too quick and you can't really take in all your work. Everything is too fast, nothing is satisfying.

    Just go to the dashboard and change your country,

    download it, then change back ur country.

    I'm not sure this would work, but go head and try that.

    I also live in the Dominican Republic and CAN'T get this map pack.

    Why oh why doesn't microsoft take my money?!?

    "Ok, so just signed up for the Gears Forums just to post this.

    I can't access it either. I also live in the Dominican Republic.

    Just go to the dashboard and change your country,

    download it, then change back ur country."




    I can attest to that not working.

    I signed up for LIVE in the US and then brought it here to DR. So not only did I sign up over there, but the "country" is listed as USA....so that definitely isn't helping the problem.

    The only other time that I've had problems downloading from the xbox because of region has been when people here at gamefaqs found out that you could download previously unreleased items (limited edition stuff) from xbox.com,...which was like a few days AFTER xbox.com allowed you to buy stuff. That is the only time I have had trouble. aside for that, no problems at all.

    I live in the Middle East but I have an console purchased in the UK registered in the UK. I downloaded flashback and the combustible map packs fine but for some reason snowblind is blocked.

    It is very weird as the game is readily available everywhere and all map packs contain the same age rating.

    Hope this gets fixed soon I am really looking forward to trying the new maps out!

    Actually, the flashback maps are ON THE DISC, so I don't see how they could restrict access to that. But the combustible map pack...if you could download it then they should let you download this one.

    I didn't get that first map map because I believe $10 bucks is too much for maps...and especially bad for 3 maps. For 4 maps I feel cheated, but with 3 maps, no way. Only way I get the combustible map pack is if it goes free.

    But I was willing to dish out some molah for this pack and this happens....

    I'm already peeved at the "matchmaking' in this game and now this?!?

    All or most of Latin America is blocked, also the Caribbean, which is considered Latin America. The only was is to change your IP address using some kinda VPN thingy. I'll look for it and post it here.

    Question to the people living in the Dominican Republic:

    1. What service are you guys using to get internet?

    I want to know because I am thinking of changing my plan. I'm currently on Verizon's/Codetel's "Plan avanzado 1", which has a 768downstreas/512 upstream connection. I'm paying $1,400 pesos for that.

    For the past few months, though, I am getting horrible download speeds when I use my Torrent programs. Torrent programs are used to download stuff (movies/music/etc). I think some companies in the US has also instituted this and they call it "throttling". During the weekdays, around 10:30 - 11:30 AM (until like 11:30PM), my speeds die down to speeds around 3 - 4 kb's, while I'm usually around 85 - 90 kb's. So I am thinking of changing to another internet service.

    2. How much does your service provider cost and how reliable is it?

    3. Do you download using Torrents? If so, do you also get bad speeds? Do you think it is because of this "throttling"?
