Just wondering if someone can tell me whether or not I'm downloading DayZ Epoch correctly?


Aight so I want to download DayZ Epoch, I have been playing DayZ through DayZ Commander and when I go to Install/Update, go down to Epoch click install it starts downloading, it gets to about 50 to 55% downloaded and then comes up with a little red triangle and stops downloading, I then go and click install again and it starts at about 33% until it hits 50 to 55% and does the triangle again, this also happens on Origins, so I'm not sure if it my internet or something else??

The error I get when I put my mouse over the red triangle is.


cdn.dayz.resolved to

Me and all my DayZ crew had this exact same problem.  We just closed everything and kept clicking it until it finally wanted to download.  No idea why it happened.
