Refreshing your DLC is taking longer than expected. We recommend you continue to wait until the process is completed


#1

When I start KI and it checks for DLC and updates, now this message shows: “Refreshing your DLC is taking longer than expected. We recommend you continue to wait until the process is completed.”. I have never seen this problem ever since KI on PC started. I believe it started 02/03/19. Running KI on W10 MS Store version. Downloaded and tried it on a 2nd computer, same thing. Is there a problem with the DLC validation servers?. Is anyone on the console having this issue, or is it W10 store version only?


#2

It’s not a common error for me (I generally play on Win10), but I did see it the last time I played a few days ago. I just skipped and went into Ranked and everything worked fine :man_shrugging:t5:


#3

A lot of people are seeing this. I’d like to see a fix, of course, but it’s just annoying and not game-breaking


#4

Yes I can skip it, but the first thing I notice is that my “Double XP for All Characters” perk (it came with the KI edition I bought) is not present. The icons that show the perk in the character selection screen are gone. I don’t know what else is missing, I have not played further to find out.

–Update–
Sorry, I misspoke, I am not missing the perk; was looking in the Practice mode sorry, but what I am missing is my gold skins, terror skins and whatever the content of the “color” page was:

So, in addition to the DLC issues, I’ve had problems getting Shadows for Shadow Survival for days (it’ll frequently say the data can’t be retrieved, so you quit and then it finds it). Also, I managed to get matched against the same person 3 times in a row yesterday evening (around 8:30-9PM Pacific time), which could be legitimately be due to not enough people being online but seems fishy.

I’ll tag @KRAKENJIMMY in case he’s not aware

I also have this problem when you start the game Win 10, does not work game store, everything is empty…


#7

I have this same error, win10 version. I skip the process and everything is there, with the exception of KI Gold in Shadow Lab, but if I go to the store, my Ki Gold is visible. It also appears to show Eagle and Killgore (who I don’t own) as “coming soon” rather than “available.”


#8

This also is happening with me. I also skip, then play like normal.


#9

The dlc timeout is not normal though ofc.


#10

–Update–
Ok so if I skip the DLC check, it all works but I am missing my gold skins, terror skins and whatever the content of the “color” page was:



Any updates from @KRAKENJIMMY?


#11

I have absolutely also, not yet Shop - KI Gold!

Please help to fix the problem, it’s been a long time(


#12

I’m having the same problem. Windows 10, playing on Xbox Live. Just bought KI w/ Definitive Edition last week. I get DLC refreshing error at startup every time. It doesn’t seem to be affecting anything, but I’d like to know that all the checks and refreshes are working as they are supposed to for the content I purchased.


#13

daily bonuses, such as KI GOLD, are not added

I’ve been having this issue also. I presumed this had something to do with an issue Microsoft was having with DNS entries on certain internet providers.

I’m on Comcast/Xfinity in Chicago. I had to change my DNS to Google in order to get Windows Updates. I later changed it to Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 and was still able to update from Microsoft.

Has anyone with both an Xbox and a PC tried to play in the Xbox and see if after “validating” in the Xbox the problem goes away in the PC?. When KI was new on PC, PC users had to “validate” their purchase by logging in on an Xbox. This may have been patched afterwards, but I thought it might be worth to try.
