Update, after 24 tries and 28 hours, I finally got it to work. I think it did have a time lock.
And I deleted all the DLC content and re-installed it, that might be an alternative solution.
So I bought Lego Dimensions for the Wii U.
That was stupid, I've heard people complain this version of the game is glitchy and unstable since and boy howdy, yes it is.
Dialogue dissapearing, textures jumping in and out, missions not loading in properly, it crashed on me about 12 times already.
But hey, I'm a Sonic veteran, so I can soldier on.
Provided I get the oppurtunity to soldier at all.
Bringing us smoothly to the Sonic pack,which doesn't seem to want to install.
Sonic himself works, but I can't install the new levels.
I can download them just fine, but when the game needs to install it, it farts out.
So it's not my internet connection, not the servers and not my lego figurine, it's a matter of installation.
Checked my free space I have, more then enough to install Lego dimensions including all it's already installed level packs a second time.
I looked up the error message I got; 105-3683, all I find on google is a random Rap song. Tried rapping to the Wii U while installing but that didn't work either, so that's another dead end.
Well okay, the Nintendo website says
What to Do:Make sure the external storage device is compatible with the Wii U.
Okay... Pretty sure the Lego figurines aren't wired specifically to the Playstation, Xbox or Wii U versions, so that doesn't help.
I've bought other expansion packs from Year 1 and 2 and they work fine, it's only Sonic that farts out.
Did some fool at Travelers tales accidently put the Xbox or Playstation level files on the Nintendo server?
Now, it's very possible this is my own fault, to some degree.
Somehow the stores here sold it a day before it's official launching date, so I considered myself lucky.
But after I wasted 4 hours on failed installations, I was forced to assume I was not going to play the new levels until the 18th after all.
So I waited till midnight, downloaded it and... Nope.
Okay, fine, normally you wouldn't be able to buy the game right on midnight, let's wait till the stores have been open for a couple hours. Nope. Let's wait till it's lunchtime. Nope.
Last conclusion I can jump too is that it won't start until school and offices are out because they assume everyone is at work from 9- 5.
Fine. I guess people who work evening or night shifts like me are screwed, but that's my last bastion of hope.
Right now I'm start to wondering if this is a limitation all owners of the Sonic DLC for Lego dimensions on the Wii U have, or if it's just me, because I see youtube video's of people playing, tough probably on the playstation and Xbox versions that don't suck.
So, any other folks with Lego Sonic for the Wii U? Can you install the levels? Or are all Wii U's locked from accesing the Sonic levels?
But yeah, if it still doesn't install after my work shift is over, then I have no idea what's going on. Hope the data isn't corrupted.I always have to delete the failed download files before I can re-attempt installing, so that's unlikely, but if somehow the main game data has become corrupted because of the false start, then I'm screwed.
I either have to delete the entire game and re-install everything from scrach and lose hours of save data, throw another enormous sum of money on the already embarresing amount I spent on this thing but at least get the non garbage Playstation 3 version, or pretend I don't have Sonic levels at all. All options a waste of time and money, and neither I'm very happy in parting with.
But yeah, at the moment it seems my review video for this level pack will just be analyzing the amazing details, charm and spectacle of the error installation screen.
Oh, and the best part? Trough clips on Youtube I saw this game mocks Sonic 06. Hahaha. Good one, thank goodness we've passed that point and Sonic games are super slick and clean and devoid of any problems these days, right?
Actually, I feel like playing Sonic 06 today. At least that game actually starts.
