ACTUAL REACH CONTENT/STORY SPOILER
the thread title is technically inaccurate and we literally had that discussion when thinking about whether to rename the game with Reach addition, but a technicality won on a technicality...

Windows Store being Weird; says installed.. nothing else.

Launch 'the game' and all I get is a simple window with a logo, and nothing happens.

Where is this download supposedly occuring?

I am sorry but can I only buy Halo Reach or do I need Master Chief Collection? It's confusing. On Halo Reach Steam page it says that " This content requires the base game Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Steam in order to play. " When I am on MCC page Halo Reach is listed in between all games that are included in MCC. So why there is option to buy only Halo Reach?

PSA: Game becomes ready to start at ~2.7GB on Xbox One. Reach is 19GB (SP+MP combined).

I recommend launching into the game and making Reach a priority.

Also crowdfunding some tech help. I've got Xbox Game Pass for PC, and every time I press install it thinks about it for a few seconds, before cancelling the download. No errors. Anyone else have this issue?

EDIT: I managed to solve this by installing it through the Microsoft Store, instead of the Xbox Game Pass.

You're allowed to just buy Reach. The store page is misleading

Sitting at 10.9 MB/s on Steam right now with 10.0gb downloaded. Servers seem to be holding.

Edit: Jumped to 11.6 MB/s!

7 minutes to go then back to work. Remote desktop is great! I can play when I get home now. :)

Delete and redownload
Great now it's just saying Error; from the actual collection "One or more items can't install"... from the convoluted as hell Halo Reach option "This is an update to a game you haven't downloaded."

Yay, chicken before the egg.. seriously the biggest absolute piece of shit piece of software in all of gaming is the Windows Store

Remember if you have the game "Installed" but not really, look above the Play button and there should be "Update" button. Weird how they did it.

Having no problems with download though, 20 MB/s.

Why would Steam be on fire? It's handled bigger launches, I'm sure. It didn't break when Monster Hunter World came out last year, for example.
