When you close the launcher, progress of the download is saved. The next time you open the launcher it will resume where it left off.

 

There's no actual pause/resume on the launcher itself, though.

Just close the launcher and the next time you open it will run a check and start from where you left off.

I wondered if i could pause/resume as well, and i googled the answer. This page is what popped up. So i took the advice saying i could just close the launcher, only to have it resume where it was once opened again. For me, This was not true. I close the launcher, and re opened it when i was done with what i was doing, and it started back at 0% NOT where it left off. which was 56%.

DONT CLOSE! It will not pick up where you left off. I started my Launcher and when i first opened it it was download at like 30.0mb/s then slowly over time it went further and further down. Now at 30% I'm doing 4.22mb/s and dropping. Anyone have a solution or should i just let this darn thing take 9 plus hours? I mean, ill get to play eventually right? :/

It scans what you have already downloaded (at 30MB/sec, maybe faster on a SSD?) then continues to download where it left off, slowly lowering the average download rate.

It took about almost 30 hours to download on my potato powered DSL, :o

I thought I'd test this since I just got a new PC for Christmas that melts my freakin face. Yes, you can close the launcher and re-open. I will p/u where you left off... At least as long as you do it right away... I don't know about restarting pc etc. It may be in a temp storage state.

I know, I necro'd the thread. It was worth adding my personal experience to any new people playing, specially since free week an all that jazz,

Use a heatsink instead of your face to cool the CPU. Much better imo.

WARNING:

I just followed those in this thread that it will resume download after closing. I had spent four hours downloading nearly 40%.  Needed to do something else on my PC that required some bandwidth, so after reading this thread I closed the launcher feeling like it was safe as it would pick up where it left off.  Half an hour later I reopened the BDO launcher expecting it to be back near the 40% I downloaded prior. NOPE! Literally 10 minutes later and it's at 1% now, and the launcher is not acknowledging ANY of my previous download data. It is starting the entire download from scratch and has only done 600MB, which out of the massive 43.5GB is like a drop in the bucket. P.S. My computer is a beast, with an i7 4GHZ CPU and 24GB of RAM, so no, it isn't taking time catching up to where it left off.  It is literally starting the entire thing over.

To think I was at 17GB when I closed this thing...

So...if you googled this like me and you had been downloading for what felt like ages prior...don't run the risk of closing this 40GB download, there is no guarantee it will resume. It definitely did not for me.
