    Goodday everyone!

    With the Ready to Play feature being as amazing as it is, is there anyway to have the downloads paused when you launch a Ready to Play game in progress?

    Im Iownloading Apex Legends for my son. This update is a good 32GB. My internet is pretty bandwidth challenged. We are about 20GB in and it is ready to play without any HD textures. Not a big deal. Launching the game though resumes the download and causes
    lag. Is there anyway around this?

    :)

    Hello ,

    Thank you for posting here on tyhe Xbox forums. We understand that you are looking for a way to pause the download of a game whenever you launch it when it reaches its "Ready to play" mode. While there is no way to set this up to happen automatically, you
    should be able to pause the download manually and then launch the game. Just make sure you select Pause and not "Cancel". Let us know the results!
    Nope, this unfortunately doesnt work. It allows you to pause it, but when you launch the game it auto resumes. If you have the game launched, then try to pause, same thing, a few seconds later it auto resumes.

    I'm not sure if there is a less conventional method. Router port blocking?

    Download Pause - Ready to Play Issue

    Not sure how to help but can I ask why you don't want all of it installed?? Also I think if you press the "start" button on the install I think the option is there

    Download Pause - Ready to Play Issue

    Thanks for the reply. I have a data cap limit. Forza 5 is 40 GB for the whole thing. It's a big download. I had it running perfectly at 35 % with plenty of racing for the Weekend free Play deal. Thus, it's not necessary to blow my data cap on the whole
    thing, I'm not a huge race fan. Also, just regarding the "think it's there" ... that's what I thought... 5 hours of searching plus about 183 button click attempts seem to suggest not. Wish these things were "idiot proof" to be honest, hope I'm blind and
    it's like right there... but honestly ... it's not.

    Update delete

    It's how the Xbox is installing the update in to the original download. Just pause the update until you're ready.
