Wallpaper not downloading
Wallpapers won't download.
More than 24 Hours ago the wallpapers we're downloading fine.
Now they are all stuck at 0% Pending.
They are not even in my steam download list
Help?

You need to restart the application by closing it and opening it again.

Whenever you close it be sure its not running in the background still so confirm it in your task manager. If you know how to terminate the app then do so.

Incase if it still doesn't work, restart your PC and it should solve the issue entirely.

Wallpaper Engine only shows what Steam is doing, it doesn't control the downloads itself. Make sure you didn't set any time restrictions in Steam and that no other game/app is running, it would stop the download.

Also there is a Steam sale so it's possible that the Steam servers are just slow.

No this has been happening since the last wallpaper engine update. Before I could go to steam downloads and set wallpaper engine downloads manually , now I don't see wallpaper engine in steam downloads.
The fix that worked for me was to restart or shut down and start my PC and the wallpapers were downloaded. But now even that's not working. 2 wallpapers are stuck at 100% while another one is still pending

Well there is just nothing in Wallpaper Engine that controls this, I only receive the download percentage/status from Steam and display that as is...

Can you check this Steam log for errors: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\logs\workshop_log.txt perhaps it is stuck on a certain Workshop item, then unsubscribing that should help. I think it can happen when the item was removed by the author but you were in the middle of downloading it.

Did you try clearing Steam's download cache?
same problem here

Hey guys, I had the same problem but figured it out. You have to look at your downloads and make sure Wallpaper engine has the highest priority when you want to download a wallpaper. Hope this helps you guys.

If you have a queue in you library make sure to "download" your wallpaper engine and it will be a bunch of 250kb files which are the files for the wallpapers
