How Long Does It Take For DC Universe Online To Finish Loading Or Did My Game Freezed?

I just downloaded the free to play version of this game and I already had it installed but for some reason it is stuck on the loading screen after the silver bar was completed and the green one over it does not seem to barely move at all and it has been like this for literally 1 hour

Apparently it takes a very long time.  I just encountered the same thing at the first loading screen.  It's been downloading for 5 minutes and it's only at 2%.  Looks like i'll be leaving my PS3 on all morning while I sleep.

You could try to exit the game, if the whole thing is forzen it won't let you do a thing, and and if you close down the game, what already downloaded remains downloaded, so you won't have to redownload anything. However you said Loading, have you already downloaded it, note the game downloads once you start it up, and it does take quite awhile to download, more then a few hours, maybe more like 5 or even more depending on your internet speed. It's hard to say an exact time, it is a 15 GB download and install, and it also depends on how many people are download at one time, I remember during the beta, for the first little while, it took forever to download because there was so many people downloading at one time, but after it cooled off it went faster.

This is where devs should have learned from Kojima and use P2P as an alternative when the http gets choked to death by the horde of downloaders.

If the digital version is anything like the disc based install then it takes a long time. I thought mine froze too but decided to leave it on overnight and when I woke up the next day it was finished. So I'm not sure exactly how long it takes but I do know it takes a while and will seem like it's not doing much.

Well, it all depends on your internet speed.  It took me 5 and a half hours to DL!  I have relatively fast internet (cable, wired) but it's 18gb!  So, it's gonna be a while.  Look below the green bar - it should tell you how much you have left and how long yo've been DLing.

Don't think you're problems are over after you are finished DLing, though.  I have yet to be able to play the game as it keeps saying I've been disconnected before I even start the game!!!  I've been trying for over an hour...

Mine has been downloading from the menu screen for days. It says its only 50% done; Hasn't this been a problem since the day the game launched. It seems like the problem is so hush hush because when I try to search for a solution to the problem online I only find official solutions from over a year ago and they say that they fixed it. Bologna!!
