Microsoft working on fix for Xbox issue causing games to install past 100%

Microsoft has acknowledged a small error on the Xbox One that causes games to display that they are installing past 100%. Currently it seems to impact games that have title updates awaiting them, including Halo 5 and Grand Theft Auto.

According to an Xbox staff member, Microsoft is working on a fix:

"We have determined that the user experience of over 100% install is impacting all titles that are digital and have a pending/current title update. We are getting preview reports of both Halo 5 and Grand Theft Auto showing this over 100% install issue, you will see other titles as well reporting this error.""The game will install correctly just let it finish and a fix is being worked on."

It should be noted that this issue doesn't appear to cause any actual problems with the games themselves.

  • I had this with Halo 5. Currently at 227%. :)
  • Alot of game for the money:)
  • You could sell half and still have all of it
  • You just installed Halo 10.135
  • Turn it up to 11
  • 227% means you have Halo 7.2 pre-installed and waiting for Digital activation in 2017. It s not a bug.
  • Wouldn't that be Halo 6.2? Since it's two Halos, 5, then 6. And the quarter extra. So, maybe Halo 5, and 6, with a Beta for Halo 7? 343 is really knocking these out Ubi style.
  • Lol. Wierd bug. Not seen it myself. At least it doesn't affect the actual game code at all.
  • Pretty easy to have this big actually. Sounds like when they determine the total download size for the purposes of the progress bar, they are only looking at the original game size. But they are downloading the game with all updates, so the calculation simply goes over. One out my projects was making some generic progress bar code, and this would be a very easy issue to have (and should be easy to fix as well).
  • That doesn't seem right. The game ships around 50 GB and has a patch that's about 9 GB of content. That wouldn't equate to the first comment's report of seeing 227% installation progress. IF anything, it could be the opposite, with the 9 GB being treated as the 100% and the 50 GB being the excess that's thrown on top. Regardless, I have a feeling it might be comething more complex than that.
  • Are the downloads compressed? Perhaps it might be something to do with that?
  • No idea how htey handle it. Like, with Windows Phone, you actually had to have FOUR TIMES the space an app actually took up before you could install it. Maybe it's compressed, but I don't believe any DL compression would be able to make this read as 227% because when you compress it that heavily (50%+), you'd suffer quality loss in the actual DL (like with low-bitrate music).
  • Well ive noticed with mw10 even installing apps/games sometimes it sit in the queue even though its finished so I end up having to close store completely
  • Xbox.... "always give 110%"

  • Report it to msft. I had an issue similar on the 360. They resolved it for me.
