It would be MUCH quicker to find out which file is bad so I can test it and fix it.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Ok,
I'll do it tomorrow with your instructions. But I've got a question. Every file is supposed to be 95mb right? Because some of my files are much smaller, so that should be the broken ones, or not?

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Yes, every file is exactly 97,280 KB, except for the last one (part 35), which is 97,091 KB. So any that don't match those specs should be downloaded again.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
[devil's advocate] Is that the file's size, or its size on disk?  They aren't necessarily the same, you know.  :drevil: [/devil's advocate]

Yah, one of QuickPar's purposes is to repair corrupt file efficiently.  I'd explain more, but I (unfortunately) haven't used it yet; I would have, but I had already deleted the source (good) file, so it wouldn't have helped in my situation.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Good point.

That's the size in Windows Explorer folder view.

In file properties, it's:

Size: 95.0 MB (99,614,720 bytes)
Size on disk: 95.0 MB (99,614,720 bytes)

So strangely enough in this case they're the same.

For the last file, it's:

Size and size on disk: 94.8 MB (99,420,339 bytes)

And I would run quickpar, but it would take 2 1/2 hours on this machine, so I won't.  ;7

Suck it up and run it :lol:  jk
IIRC you can configure QuickPar with different levels of restorability... like I said, PM kara, he knows all about it.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
why not torrent it? it might help with te download
i know i misspeld my name >_<

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Ok,
I downloaded all the "broken" files again over the night. And now they're all 95mb. There's only one file missing. Guess which.....right 32. And I REALLY hate rapidshare because you have to wait about 110 minutes before downloading again. So now I have to wait, but then I'll download the last file and tell if it worked.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Hmph.  These aren't hosted at FileFront?  What are they, just the .iso file RAR'ed to 32 pieces?  I can do that & upload to FileFront sometime... if you guys want.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
@datnervt: Mediafire accepted my 32nd part (again) the other day, and here it is, no waiting: http://www.mediafire.com/?a3mlhzl3zmj
I don't know why you had to wait 110 minutes, I only have the one file on Rapidshare.
Be sure to run md5summer if it doesn't extract and tell me which piece is bad. I also have Quickpar pieces standing by if need be.

@shiven_warior: It's already being torrented by jr2.

@jr2: I don't understand your hmph. It makes me think you think I did something wrong. It doesn't make sense to host them on filefront because that's where hip63 already has his 4-parter, and if they delete his then they would delete yours and that's not a very robust backup.

Mediafire has no bandwidth limitations or download restrictions.

Also, it's 35 pieces. The reason for that number is because more than one person wanted parts smaller than 100MB, and 100MB is the size limit on many hosting services.

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
@Huggybaby: nonsense.  You did nothing wrong, I'm was just wondering why it wasn't in both places...
In other words, I was grumbling.  :D  But not at you.  About nothing in particular and everything in general.  The reason I was asking, is cause I can upload it to FileFront if Mediafire is unreliable... or is the problem at the other end of the pipe?

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Thanks for not grumbling at me.  ;) The internet is a strange place, you never know.

I don't know that there's a problem with MediaFire, I've never really had trouble before. I have files there that have been downloaded hundreds of times. It's just that here there are two people who have had problems, and unless they report with more info I'll have to assume the problem is on their end.

Getting a corrupt download from anywhere is not too uncommon, especially if one has a slow connection and/or does other things on the net while downloading. So, if you were to upload a 35 parter to filefront, and the trouble is on the downloader's end, then unfortunately it wouldn't make any difference.

With md5summer I've provided the tool to know for sure. And, I have quickpar files generated and ready to go.

 
Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Utter noob seeks help.

So I got the 4 files off filefront.

I extracted the first file *out of the iso* to a folder as per instructions. (that is, open rar, open iso, extract from there)

I assumed I also needed to extract the other 3 .iso's from the rars to the same folder.  But when I go to do this, WinRAR tells me "you need to start extraction from a previous volume to unpack FreespaceSCP.iso". FreespaceSCP.Part2-4 all give me this message if I attempt to unpack them.  Have the files become corrupted or am I going about this the wrong way?  Go heavy on the details, I'm obviously not well versed in installing things from iso's.

If not.. do I just leave the part 2-4 rars in the same folder as the FreespaceSCP.exe and begin installation?

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
Yeah, sounds like you got a bit confused.  It's actually one ISO file, split into 4 compressed .rar files.  Most programs that can unrar a file, will know how to use the last 3 if you start at the first file.  So, open (or right click if you have the options in your right click menu) the first rar file, tell it to extract its contents to somewhere you can remember, and it should extract all 4 rar files at one time, and you should have one iso file when it's done.  Then, you can either burn the iso to a DVD using a program that can burn isos, or just use Daemon Tools or some other virtual cd-rom drive program to mount it as a virtual disc drive, and install from that.  If you need any help with the last part just post again.

Uhm, any idea how to get Lightspeed's nebula files working with this? Because so far I couldn't find a "map" directory in this DVD install and even if I make one and put the files there, the shiny background files isnt appearing  :sigh:

Re: FreeSpace SCP DVD ISO Now Available for Download (New Mirror Posted!)
You shouldn't need a map directory, you probably want to get the .vp versions of the backgrounds and the campaign missions, and just put those in your mediavps folder.  I don't know the link off the top of my head.

Well I've already sorted it out. I just made a vp file of the background files I have and put it into the mediavp folder. Thanks anyway  :)
