Map download fail


Recommended Posts

So I downloaded and installed the "Steel Beasts Map Transfer Manager" and tried to install the new maps. I managed to download two (Kiev East 3627b1a9-a197-49e8-a738-59a0b49076b5; Kiev West 8fd98b23-f3b7-45b4-b704-326aabb3aedb) but the other ones keep failing at 1% download. Has anybody else encountered the same problem? Is there a way to fix it or to get the maps using an alternative?

I do have enough space on the disk. Could be the connection although I doubt it. I never had any troubles with it. Is there another way to get my hands on these maps? Or do I need to try until it works?

Wait for a few hours and try to download again. There is no other way to get them.

The map server is hosted on Amazon Web Services, and we're paying them dearly, so at least the web infrastructure should be solid. I seem to remember that there was some logging with the Transfer Tools too, probably where all the other logs are.

Maybe there's an illuninating entry, somewhere.

Okay so I managed to find a solution. For some reason, using a VPN fixes the issue. I don't know why but for me it works perfectly now.

Well, good you found a solution. Seems when I have a problem, I'm the only one reporting it, too.  I end up feeling a bit dumb and a bit foolish.  Very glad you reported your issue and then the discovery of a workaround.
