I turned on my 360 to try out the new DLC and, despite getting a 5MB update, couldn’t select the Baroness as a new character. After turning the game on and off several times and trying unsuccessfully to download the character from the DLC menu (the one you access from the main menu) a new downloadable content option appeared: a 376 MB compatibility pack. After downloading the pack from the DLC menu, the main menu then added an option to download a compatibility pack - the same one I just finished downloading.
I turned the game off and on once more, and when I got to the main menu, I got a popup box telling me I needed to download a compatibility pack, the first time that’s happened since the Holodome DLC released. Turns out it was the same pack that I downloaded after it finally showed up on the DLC menu. After trying to satisfy the game by downloading it AGAIN, it took me to the main menu where the option to download the pack persisted. The DLC menu also told me that the pack was available for download but not installed on my system.
A little perturbed, I went on to my hard drive and deleted the pack to see if the situation would resolve itself through a normal download after I turned the game back on. Back on the game’s main menu, there was no option to download the pack except from the DLC menu. I fully downloaded it from there and, like before, the game then started to tell me that I needed to install the compatibility pack both from a popup box, and from the now-present “Compatibility Pack” menu option on the main menu.
This was probably foolish of me, but I then deleted ALL three compatibility packs on my hard drive (the one from Jack, one from Holodome, and one from today) just to see if the issue would resolve. That only made things worse.
Now, the game keeps telling me I need to install either the 187 MB pack from the Jack DLC, or the 376 MB pack from today. Despite re-downloading them, the game won’t register that they’re on my hard drive. As for the Holodome pack, it’s never asking me to download it.
I’m now stuck in this endless loop of a compatibility pack nightmare and nothing I try is resolving the issue. The game flat-out denies that I have any packs on my system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
(Oh, and for the record, I have the season pass and that’s why I thought the new character DLC would download without fuss).
EDIT - I’m also noticing that the Baroness DLC isn’t on my hard drive and I’m never given an option to download it. What’s going on here?
EDIT #2 -
I deleted both packs again as well as clearing my system cache (a fix that worked for the compatibility pack issue in BL2). Again, no dice. The game won’t register that I have the packs even after I downloaded them and confirmed that they’re on the hard drive by viewing the drive’s contents (the in-game status of the new pack is still “Not Downloaded”). The DLC menu finally gave me the option to download Aurelia, but the download I got from the Xbox store was only 108 KB. The game tells me that Aurelia is installed, but that I haven’t purchased it. My hard drive still doesn’t say that Aurelia has been installed. I have two compatibility packs, Jack DLC, and the Holodome DLC, but no Aurelia.
