I've bought S2TW earlier today, and have been waiting around 10 hours at the moment for it to launch... It's stuck at 97% because of some update in Steam.
Steam was downloading updates for some of my other games too, and those downloaded at speeds close to 1mb/s. Once every few minutes, S2TW tells me it's downloading at 2kb/s... Hence it is still stuck at 97% after all this time.
Is there any way around this? Can I download this bloody update somewhere else? Can I start S2TW via another way (yes, I did try launching it from the Steam directory, to no avail)?
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: This is one of the reasons to hate Steam, when I have bought a game I should be able to play it as soon as possible.
EDIT: Note that I did try changing the download region. And it looks like it works the first few moments after starting Steam (downloading at around 30 kb/s), only for it to go back to it's old state not even a minute later. So still stuck at 97%.
