TOPIC: Unable to get full files from the library!

Unable to get full files from the library! 5 years 11 months ago #23404

Hi guys (sorry to appear over here with a 'complaint' :laugh: ), I have been trying for the past two days to get the new Sea Venom.

My download starts OK at a resonable speed but slows to halt at some stage (often 14% or 65%) then 'auto-completes' telling me it has finished. I end up with 4 mb file instead of a 8.8 mb file.
A few weeks ago I had no problems here, but now both IE7 and Firefox 3.1 give the same result. As I type, it looks like this attempt (about number 20) is stuck at 17%! I have tried some other files with the same result. I checked out FS.com and DL a larger file there today, with no problems at all.

Because of the 'pop-up' method that you use here, I cannot even use a DL manager that at least would allow me to resume the DL. For the record, I sometimes cannot get a file from Simviation (no idea why), but that normally does not start! This snag is driving me potty!!

Hi Calypsos.

Firstly a few questions. Are you getting any error messages or are the downloads just freezing? Is it always with files from one particular section or are all doing it?

I know the pop up system can be a pain, I was initially loathed to implement it, but from searching thorugh our logs I found we had a big problem with people linking directly to files from their sites and passing them up as their own and it was one of the best ways to stop it. It also assists with keeping the logs such as how often files are downloaded.

For now, until I can look into the problem, which files are you after and i'll email you the direct http link so you can use a manager.

I shall also email the developers who designed the library software and see if they have any ideas.

Rob.

Thanks Rob,
I get no error messages, the DL progress meter is going across as normal (my internet does sometime stutter for a few seconds, I am on a shared network system using a common IP number for quite a lot of users) then seems to stop, the most I got once was 74%.

After about two minutes (on several attempts, only ten seconds) of no activity, the progress bar shoots to the right in a quick leap and I get the 'Download Complete' message. The resulting file is half (or less) the size it should be and cannot be used.
I really just wanted the new Sea Venom!

Cheers,
Trev

Hi all,

I'm having exactly the same problem with the DH80 Puss Moth but am I being too hasty as I see it is 'coming soon'

Also is the Sea Vixen for FSX only? Is there an FS9 version?

Thanks for the great site and for all your hard work and patience Guys!

Not sure what the problem is - but yes I will do the same for you this evening if you desire - you can download the Puss Moth at Simouthouse as well

As to the Venom -- thats a question for Rob Richardson to answer
