Since neither of you have said so, I'm assuming you haven't yet read this thread.

If you have cut'n'pasted the error, then it's likely a coding error cause it should say http:// and not http//. Though, I have not recieved this error personally, so I'm just guessing.

smythe, you'll notice (and if you were affected, remember) that topic is about a problem introduced a few versions ago. The message recieved here refers to the current version, and appears after it says 'checking media' and resets the progress bar 3 times, then displays the message. the error in that old version happened after actually being able to download the files.

and i tried to copy the error - can't be copied. it's not in a copyable box, so that was probably jack just typing in the whole thing by hand and making a typo.

Hey Wildeyedjack I remember you had problems staying online long enough to complete the downloads, could it be that you have failed downloads that are causing these problems?

for me anyway, it's fixed now, probably just a server problem.
But yeah, download time is over 2 hours, and many UK isps - probably quite a few elsewhere too - have an annoying 'disconnect after 2 hours' rule, ie. after 2 hours online you get disconnected and have to reconnect.

ok, finally got a chance to try downloading it, used the usual 'download for 2 hours, get disconnected, reconnect and download the rest' system - only to find that Puzzle Pirates has reset it back to over 2 hours again. Is this a problem with the new version?

Anyway, this is another argument for being able to download the media files outside of the client :)

at least some of us can get broadband :(

Anyone got any ideas for how I can play since the new version won't allow resuming the media download?

Something you could consider is ask a buddy to zip an installed version and then send it to you via an ftp that has resume abilities. As far as I can remember you just need the .yohoho directory (asuming you have the client installed).

already considered it. don't have any buddies around where i live who could really help me with this, who i could copy the folder from easily, and downloading 120 mb (the size of my yohoho folder) resumed would take a day or two unless i left the computer doing only downloading for 12 hours, which is a waste of a day when i have other stuff to do :(

I guess I'll just wait for midnight and p2p (assuming i havent forgotten about the game by then), and hope they go for the 'send out CDs' option. Or hope they bring back resuming possibility to the media download :)

BTW... is there a account inactivity period after which stuff will get deleted? If downloads do become dodgily resumable again like they were, I'd rather not log in to find i've lost everything.
